If Ben was born on Jakku then his Father had a low opinion of the planet his one and only child was born on!!!

Didn't he call it a junkyard???
@Rogue Rey

That's good catch. I think Han would react differently at the mention of Jakku then.

I don't think that Leia will exactly choose to give birth there. I think that they're setting things up for her to go into labor during the Battle of Jakku, which will likely place her near or on Jakku for Ben's birth.

True there are many out there who think that!

But even his old pa??? Evil or Very Mad  Bad Han. lol!

@ISeeAnIsland oh yeah Leia probably didn't plan on having her baby on a bleak desert planet on the edge of settled space.

I just had a micro thought - what if Lor San Tekka was present at Ben's birth - he did know where he came from after all!!!! Sorry I'm going too far!!! lol!

@ISeeAnIsland

No way she would chose it. However, having in mind Han's reaction, it didn't look like he associatea Jakku with something personal and very dramatic (as the birth of his now dark side turned son would be in the heat of the battle).
I just don't know actually. We shall see in 3 weeks I guess.

Ben being born among chaos would definitely suit his character. And if Snoke is on Jakku at that time in some form, well...

Agreed. I think Ben being unexpectedly born on Jakku during the Battle of Jakku is almost too perfect an opportunity to pass up, story wise. I guess we'll see soon!

I saw some interesting speculation elsewhere online that perhaps Lando's gift to baby Ben would be the legacy lightsaber...

If not as a baby gift, the Empire's End excerpt certainly hints that there would be a lot of people working on reconstruction projects around Bespin, so it starts to make more sense that a worker could have found/recovered the lightsaber.

Dear God!

I completely forgot about that connection.
It's definitely a possibility .

I would love it to be Rae Sloane...and she seemed at the start of a redemption arc at the end of Life Debt.. the one character whose redemption would make me fall off my chair is Rax... What a Face

@panki

Right now I'm thinking that it might be Rae Sloane but wasn't she already a fan favourite?i know that doesn't mean she couldn't have a redemption arc but I thought it was obvious thing were going that way since Life Debt.
But yeah Rax having a redemption arc would totally shock me in a way not even a Kylo one would. affraid Laughing

Rae is fan favorite but she's working for the Empire so she technically falls into bad guy category. The tweet is probably about her though Rax would be mind-blowing surprise. How did SWNN get to read the book early? meaning more people may get their hands on it and I mean people willing to spoil like those Tumblrinas who read Bloodline and Life Debt.

@vaderito

Advance copies have already been sent out to some reviewers. I think they're under embargo until the release date or closer to it, at least. There has been mention of a Dutch leak but I can't find anything so I don't know if it was a joke.

There have been some speculations that he's Snoke but if we exclude those I guess it's posisble if doesn't die in Empire's End.

Sloane almost seems too obvious, in that she was clearly turning against the Empire at the end of Life Debt. Her doing something heroic in Empire's End wouldn't really surprise me. I would be ecstatic if TLJ ends with Kylo being in the same general place that Sloane ended Life Debt in.

I can't see it being Rax--he's pretty clearly set up to be the Big Bad of the Aftermath trilogy.

Two Empire's End spoilers have been circulating one (the more reasonable sounding one) has been debunked but the other (crazy one) hasn't been as yet. I'll put them in spoiler tags, although I just can't believe the second one is true...

Spoiler:
Some fans were getting upset about a spoiler that Wedge Antilles got killed during the Battle of Jakku. Reliable sources are now saying this one isn't true. The other "spoiler" about Empire's End "redeeming" a character is supposed to be about... Jar Jar Binks! There has been no debunking of it so far but... Jar Jar Binks... It sounds so crazy it might be true!

Does it make me a bad person that I enjoy hating the character from the crazy spoiler so much that I'm hoping that it won't be true?

Following Chuck Wendig and his sense of humor on twitter, though...I wouldn't put it past him.
