The fact that some people straight up IGNORE or somehow miss that Kylo Ren has been mentally abused and manipulated by Snoke never ceases to AMAZE me.
Where do I get this from you may ask? Oh, I don’t know….maybe Leia’s conversation with Han about their son?!
You know, this one:
“Snoke was watching our son….”
“Always, from the beginning, even before I realized what was happening, he was manipulating everything, pulling our son to the dark side.”
Ben Solo didn’t choose to change his name to Kylo Ren for “fun”. He didn’t start using his powers for evil because it sounded “cool”.
He probably didn’t even idolize his grandpa’s mistakes until Snoke started influencing him. (I hope!)
