Ok but maybe Kylo’s faith in Snoke isn’t even misplaced fanatical belief. Maybe it’s what he clings to because it’s better to believe that Snoke is helping him and molding him into this righteous, powerful warrior than the alternative. It’s better to cling to that lie than to face the horrible truth that he has been preyed upon by a terrifying, tremendously powerful being that he can’t defend himself against or escape. Snoke has been inside his head since birth, and no one protected him, and he knows no one is coming to save him now. Compared to the absolute horror of acknowledging a life in which he is nothing but prey and has no control, it would seem better to cling to the idea that he chose this path for himself and is striving towards something better.
