“You think you can turn him? Pathetic child… I cannot be betrayed… I cannot be beaten. I see his mind… I see his every intent. Yes… I see him turning the lightsaber to strike true! And now… foolish child… he ignites it… and KILLS HIS TRUE ENEMY!”
Supreme Leader Snoke – The Last Jedi
Who saw this coming?
I thought not.
As I sat in the cinema and Snoke had Rey powerless, commanding Kylo to kill her I I wondered how she would get out of this.
Then you see Kylo moving the lightsaber on Snoke’s Throne. But surely he’d notice, or sense something.
The shock on the Supreme Leader’s face as he was impaled was a look shared by many across the world that day and then it’s quickly followed by another Force Theme Ray moment as the lightsaber flies into her hand as she stands up and looks to Kylo.
And I’m sure we all wondered if he had turned good. Well no he hadn’t but he had just given us a massive WTF moment that changed the course of perceptions across the whole fandom.
