This “Star Wars” Fan Theory About Kylo Ren Is Perfect

WARNING: This post contains huge spoilers and excessive use of the caps lock button.

1. This is Letícia Piroutek. She’s a 23-year-old blogger from Brazil and she just posted an amazing fan theory about Star Wars: The Force Awakens on her Tumblr.

2. On the ride back from seeing the newest Star Wars film, her dad, Jimmy, a massive Star Wars fan, pictured below, told her his personal fan theory about who Kylo Ren is and what he’s trying to do.

3. Piroutek writes that Kylo Ren actually just joined the Sith to finally kill Snoke:

OK SO WE GOT OUT OF OUR SECOND THE FORCE AWAKENS SHOWING AND MY DAD WAS DRIVING US HOME AND OUT OF NOWHERE HE WAS LIKE: ………………….oh my god. w HAT IF KYLO REN CHOSE TO GO TO THE DARK SIDE SO HE COULD HELP THE LIGHT SIDE! AND I WAS LIKE WHAT! SO HE WAS LIKE HEAR ME OUT WHAT IF HE WENT TO THE DARK SIDE JUST SO HE COULD KILL SNOKE!!!!

AND THATS WHY HE’S SO CONFLICTED, AND THATS WHY HE FEELS THE TEMPTATION OF THE LIGHT SIDE STRONGER THAN THE DARK!!!!!

4. Piroutek’s dad said that he thinks Kylo Ren is just trying to finish what Anakin Skywalker was trying to do before he was seduced by the dark side.

5. Which is why Kylo Ren is always talking to Darth Vader’s helmet!

6. It also explains what happens toward the end of The Force Awakens, when Han Solo finally faces Kylo Ren inside the Starkiller Base.

7. Piroutek writes that Han and Kylo’s conversation actually has a lot more subtext than you might think. Kylo was literally trying to confess what he’s doing.

HE HAD TO COMPLETELY TURN AWAY FROM HIS FAMILY IN ORDER TO DO THAT! TO BECOME A SITH FULLY AND COMPLETELY YOU HAVE TO SACRIFICE SOMEONE YOU LOVE TO DEATH, IN HIS CASE IT WAS HAN!

THATS WHY HE TELLS HAN HE FEELS LIKE HE’S BEING TORN APART INSIDE, BECAUSE HE DOESN’T WANT TO DO IT AT ALL, BUT IT’S THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY TO BECOME A SITH AND COMPLETE HIS TASK!!!!! KYLO LITERALLY UTTER THE WORDS “WILL YOU HELP ME” TO HAN, AND HAN SAYS “ANYTHING YOU NEED” (OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT I CANT REMEMBER)! WHAT HE’S ASKING IS IF HAN WILL DIE IN ORDER FOR HIM TO COMPLETE HIS FUCKING TASK

8. Which is also why Kylo Ren seems to be interested in Rey. If they team up, they’ll literally be the light side and the dark side of the Force.

9. As Piroutek writes, Kylo Ren is trying to be a Sith, so he can team up with a Jedi.

THEY LIVE SIDE BY SIDE IN IT THATS WHY HE’S SO CONFLICTED ALL THE TIME, THATS WHY HIS FIGHT STYLE ISNT LIKE A SITH’S AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

THEY ARE ALWAYS SAYING THAT THE DARK SIDE AND THE LIGHT ARE TOGETHER IN THE FORCE

THEY NEED THE PERSONIFICATION OF BOTH SIDES (KYLO AND REY) IN ORDER TO BE STRONG ENOUGH TO DESTROY SNOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HE LITERALLY HAS TO BECOME A SITH TO JOIN FORCES WITH A JEDI

BECAUSE THE LIGHT IN HIM IS SO MUCH STRONGER THAN THE DARK AND HE HAS TO GET RID OF IT IN ORDER TO DO WHAT HE HAS TO DO AND SAVE THE GALAXY WITH REY AND LUKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10. It would mean that Luke’s Jedi Order massacre may have been staged, as well. He needs the map to Luke, so he can keep The First Order from finding him. And that Rey was actually hidden on Jakku so Snoke would think she died in the massacre.

11. Not only does it make an awful lot of sense, it would also mean that Han Solo didn’t just get killed off for no reason.

12. Piroutek writes that it would totally connect all the dots between Rey, Luke, and Kylo.

you know how a lot of people are saying: OH BUT IT LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE EPISODE IV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!1 I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S ON PURPOSE!!!!!! BECAUSE THE PATH THEY ARE TAKING IS GONNA BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! EPISODE VII WAS LITERALLY JUST AN INTRODUCTION!!!! CALM DOWN PEOPLE PLEASE IT’S GONNA BE AWESOME!

THIS IS STAR WARS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A PLOT TWIST LIKE THIS IS MANDATORY WE ARE NOT GETTING “REMAKES” OF THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY I PROMISE YOU

idk if u like it but i THINK ITS SO FUCKING AWESOME IF THATS THE REASON ITS THE ONLY POSSIBLE GOOD EXPLANATION IN MY HEAD.

WHY SOMEONE THAT HAS LEIA AS HIS MOTHER, HAN AS HIS FATHER AND LUKE SKYWALKER AS HIS UNCLE WOULD TURN TO THE DARK SIDE U KNO

HAN DYING WOULDNT BE FOR NOTHING, HE LITERALLY DIED SO HIS FAMILY COULD FINISH SAVING THE GALAXY

REY, KYLO, LUKE, LEIA, FINN AND POE ARE GONNA DESTROY THE LAST SITH TOGETHER AND BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

13. Piroutek told BuzzFeed that she’s happy her dad’s fan theory is getting shared a ton. He’s a massive Star Wars fan.

“My dad’s like, the best dad in the world and he’s been a fan of Star Wars since forever and he’s extremely smart so I’m glad he’s finally putting it to good use,” she said. “Me and my sister grew up with these movies because of him and my mom. She’s also a huge nerd, no matter how hard she pretends she isn’t. She cried a lot in The Force Awakens and the following day I caught her crying again in the living room!”
