When Snoke is monologing about

Kylo Ren's inner emotional gears, all the while about to meet his doom,

and Kylo Ren is

turning the idle lightsaber on his master

it appears that when it is

activated, it goes through roughly the middle of Snoke's midsection, then pulled straight forward by Kylo Ren.

Wouldn't the lightsaber have

only cut through the front half of Snoke?

Yet we later see that the

cut was clear through.

Did Kylo Ren

move the saber backwards slightly before bringing it forward?

    The blade appears to have gone through his Snoke's back rather than his middle. It then came forward and cut him in half; i.stack.imgur.com/QwdXw.png – Valorum Dec 18 '17 at 21:23

    I had the same question while seeing the movie – Ram Dec 18 '17 at 23:34

    I'm going to turn this into a maths question when I get back to work - the angles of lightsabre blades and rotation. – ThruGog Dec 19 '17 at 8:35
  • If Snoke is a vertebrate his spinal column is probably one of the best spots for fatal thrust with a lightsaber, especially if Kylo Ren like we doesn't know anything about the composition of his intestines. - Another possibility could be that Snokes body was so frail that it just broke off after half of his body was cut, maybe he needed the force just to stay in one piece and after his dead the body just crumbled at strained spots. – Falco Dec 19 '17 at 13:09

    @Falco I have kind of been thinking the same thing lately about Snoke's frailty. We never see him stand or walk and given the state of his face he was either in some near death situation or hit every branch falling out of the ugly tree... – Odin1806 Dec 21 '17 at 2:29
