Kylo Ren: “I feel it again… The pull to the light”
Interesting addition to these thoughts:
The one to get Vader to take off his mask was Luke - who initially saw him as an enemy, but through love was able to help him find redemption and the Light.
The one in TFA to get Kylo Ren to take off his mask was Rey - who now sees him as her enemy.
Now… I wonder… will she just kill this guy off without a second thought? Or are we more likely to see the Star Wars themes of love, redemption, hope, and forgiveness?
I’m going to bet on the latter, personally.
Luke (family - his son) brought Anakin back from Vader - and the one who always knew there was still light in him was Padme (the woman he loved).
Rey will help bring Ben back from Kylo. Leia (family - his mother; he, grandson of Vader/Anakin), knows there is still light in him. And the one who will help bring him back…? Well, wouldn’t it be poetic if it was the woman he falls in love with?
