@BastilaBey

I really think that so many things are going to get turned on their head in Episode VIII, including this. @snufkin wrote a great post somewhere (Episode VIII thread?), talking about the three steps of a good magic trick that has made me think that all kinds of things that we may be assuming in TFA may not turn out to be true.
@SoloSideCousin

If this is the case, I can almost here the accusations of 'retconning' coming from a certain place...

Not sure if I should move this over to the redemption thread but @panki's theory on Ben acting in self defense at the Jedi massacre is really intriguing me. The force vision made it look like Luke had perhaps been away at the time and then arrived back once the place had been destroyed and people were dead. What if the whole Vader thing came out while Luke wasn't there, and Ben didn't know about it until the other students confronted him? And then they wanted to attack him or accuse him of being on the dark side? Ben could act in self defense, and then Snoke use his guilt and fear to bring him over to the FO/KoR. We already know he's been trying to poison his mind since he was ten, so the foundation is already there. And then Ben thinks, this must be my destiny because it's what my grandfather started, my parents and uncle lied to me so what did they see in me that they were so afraid of? I must be dark, this must be where I belong.

@BastilaBey

I am now getting chills (not in a good way) thinking of Snoke telling Ben- Look what you just did....you're a jedi killer too...just like your grandfather...it is your destiny.... Shocked
Poor Ben Solo.... Sad

@BastilaBey

Yeah I loved that theory by @panki and I hope they go with that - where Ben had to defend himself because everyone found out he was Vader's grandson. Tragic. Then Snoke/Hux spread it around that he was a JediKiller on purpose.
He couldn't go back to his family even if he wanted to.

@BastilaBey

This is another point that really helps me believe in the redemption of Kylo. Leia would look kind of like an incompetent FS person. Not telling Han (in the novel) about Snoke, waiting too long to send Kylo to Luke, not figuring out it was someone close to her circle, like Snoke, who was preying on Ben with the darkside (shades of Palpatine and the Jedi).

Feeling that there is still light in him, "I just know it!" and then sending her husband off to his death. Not her fault, but I feel it would just taint Leia all the more.

@BastilaBey
I think it's definitely a strong possibility, but this is like the Jedi Killer for me. We're supposed to believe he pulled an Anakin on Luke's temple and that he thinks it's his birthright to reign over the weaker beings of the galaxy. For now, that's what I'm going with. They can tell an excellent story with both scenarios being true (with a little elaboration on both with regards to motivations). I wouldn't be disappointed if it really was that simple, but I'm still hoping for a slightly more complex backstory. I just don't see Ben as power-hungry for himself. I do think he's entitled though, but not necessarily for his own sake.

@Search Your Feelings

I love this theory and hope @panki is right.
But I do really wonder, why didn't Luke tell him the truth.  I mean, he had a hard time realizing the truth about his father, because Obi-Wan lied to him. Why did he choose lying to Ben then? It seems to be out of character to me. That guy who once told his sister:"The force is strong in my family." Somehow he was proud of his lineage, wasn't he? But they didn't even tell Ben that Anakin was a Jedi, did they?

@BastilaBey

What I think we all wanted to know (for people who don't want to be spoiled about everything).
Spoiler:

1) The rumours that Ben didn't know about Darth Vader being his grandfather until he was 23 seem to be true. This must have been the catalyst that completely destroyed his worldview and allowed Snoke to finally sink his claws into him.

2) According to the reviewer, Leia was afraid of revealing the truth to Ben. She was always "waiting for the right moment." She hoped that when Ben finally did learn the truth, Luke would be there to tell him the story of how his grandfather found the light in the end.

3) The truth about Vader being Leia and Luke's father is revealed in the Senate in front of everybody. When it happens, Leia is just horrified that Ben is going to find out the truth in the wrong way.
@MyOnlyHope
Spoiler:

This is great stuff, thanks! I'm just laughing because we called this so long ago. It makes so much sense. I really wonder if Ben even knows that his grandfather turned back to the light when all was said and done. I can't imagine Luke didn't try to tell him this, even if it was after the massacre. Also I'm suspecting Snoke likely taunted Ben that his family was lying to him, something along those lines.

"Even though Luke told Leia about their father’s last moment in life and how he turned to the light side, she still can’t understand it, considering how much he took away from her." <-- This is interesting to me too. Kylo's redemption will be able to help Leia understand her own father's redemption.

He must know that Vader turned back to the light. I believe it was in the novelization, Snoke and Kylo talk about Anakin/Vader and how he chose to save his son. Snoke tells Kylo that it was an act of compassion and that this was his weakness.

Interesting that Han and Leia decided to live apart due to their constant bickering. So . . . not a great marriage, even though there's lots of love, and I guess Ben was essentially raised by a single parent? No wonder Han doesn't seem to know exactly what was going on with Snoke.

I'm not sure from that review why Rey Skywalker would be dead post-Bloodline. Overall it seems like the information given will tend to affirm people's currently existing beliefs.

You're right, he definitely knows. I'm sure he's been told a twisted account of what happened. Anakin's Force Ghost needs to show up and slap him upside the head.

I can't believe some people want to see Kylo go down the path "even Vader couldn't." *FACEPALM* Not only do they need to find a new franchise before Episode VIII because this one clearly isn't for them, they're not even right. There was never an attempt to make Vader sympathetic outside of Return of the Jedi. In Rebels, he's the creepiest thing imaginable (in charge of a literal organization that hunts Force Sensitive children for the Empire. Like oh my god. That's awful. The double-standards here are just pure insanity.

@AnneNeville
I genuinely think the timeline that Pablo revealed long ago was news to many people. It went ignored by the Reywalkers (who decided Pablo was lying and continued to theorize about massacre --> abandonment scenarios for months). But that's the thing, when you think about it, the timeline kills Rey Skywalker perhaps just as much as Maz's speech or Ren's infatuation. Rey was already on Jakku for years when this book takes place, and I think if anything it just makes it obvious that Leia, Han and Luke were all about Ben, their actual legacy.

An idea just crossed my mind: The line from novelization about Han hoping Kylo would find strength to forgive him.
Maybe Ben s during his teenage and adolescent age has expected of Han to provide him a kind of safe haven/shelter from all of the dark/light "mumbo-jumbos" going around him.
And Han simply was not there for his son enough.

I like all the spoilers we got so far form Bloodline. Gooood. Good.

Also this:

"Luke likes to keep his life private, and because of this people see him as something of a myth. Not a man of flesh and blood, in other words."

If Leia describes Luke as "private" and a "myth", the idea that he had a child or wife just gets more and more unlikely.

Yes, though I can see the theories coming that since he keeps his life very private, of course Leia and Han and the world don't know about Lil'Rey and his Secret Wife.

Yep, that's exactly what they would say. To those who see no other option than for Luke to be Rey's there is no longer regard for logic or continuity. They don't care. They just want to be right. That's why we're seeing all these insane theories. They need her to be related to Kylo, because if she isn't, then they're going to have to address what kind of hero/villain dynamic Rey and Kylo are most likely to have.

3) The truth about Vader being Leia and Luke's father is revealed in the Senate in front of everybody. When it happens, Leia is just horrified that Ben is going to find out the truth in the wrong way.

This is great stuff, thanks! I'm just laughing because we called this so long ago. It makes so much sense. I really wonder if Ben even knows that his grandfather turned back to the light when all was said and done. I can't imagine Luke didn't try to tell him this, even if it was after the massacre. Also I'm suspecting Snoke likely taunted Ben that his family was lying to him, something along those lines.

"Even though Luke told Leia about their father’s last moment in life and how he turned to the light side, she still can’t understand it, considering how much he took away from her." <-- This is interesting to me too. Kylo's redemption will be able to help Leia understand her own father's redemption.
@FrolickingFizzgig

He must know that Vader turned back to the light. I believe it was in the novelization, Snoke and Kylo talk about Anakin/Vader and how he chose to save his son. Snoke tells Kylo that it was an act of compassion and that this was his weakness.
@EchoBase
You're right, he definitely knows. I'm sure he's been told a twisted account of what happened. Anakin's Force Ghost needs to show up and slap him upside the head.

I can't believe some people want to see Kylo go down the path "even Vader couldn't." *FACEPALM* Not only do they need to find a new franchise before Episode VIII because this one clearly isn't for them, they're not even right. There was never an attempt to make Vader sympathetic outside of Return of the Jedi. In Rebels, he's the creepiest thing imaginable (in charge of a literal organization that hunts Force Sensitive children for the Empire. Like oh my god. That's awful. The double-standards here are just pure insanity.

I'm not sure from that review why Rey Skywalker would be dead post-Bloodline. Overall it seems like the information given will tend to affirm people's currently existing beliefs.

"Luke likes to keep his life private, and because of this people see him as something of a myth. Not a man of flesh and blood, in other words."

If Leia describes Luke as "private" and a "myth", the idea that he had a child or wife just gets more and more unlikely.
@FrolickingFizzgig

Yes, though I can see the theories coming that since he keeps his life very private, of course Leia and Han and the world don't know about Lil'Rey and his Secret Wife.
@AnneNeville

Definitely, I can see Reywalkers arguments rise from "private".

Even though Pablo suggested that Luke and Leia are "very close" and even have a connection through the Force.

I can see Rey's story clearly now..... Luke "the myth" Skywalker who doesn't know if he is straight or gay goes to the cantina and has a one night stand. Then a few months later (depending on which alien species) Rey magically appears. Then Leia "the lesser" Skywalker sends her murderous son to train with Luke. Luke foresees that his murderous nephew is going to kill everybody decides to save his little daughter (and not the rest of his students), takes her to a desert planet bordering the unknown regions and leaves her with Unkar Plutt to scavenge for a living. Then he returns as if nothing happened, continues to train his students and space-skype his sister for a few years. Now now, his precious super powerful force goddess daughter is back to find her missing father, finish her training and kill her evil cousin (who gets more evil and ugly with every passing second)  Razz  Twisted Evil

....besides, Ben would know if he had a little cousin running around. Yes, and Leia and Luke are connected through the force...they'd know stuff about each other. Leia being his only family, Luke would confide in her
