Given the destination of Kylo Ren at the close of The Last Jedi, namely
his assuming the position of Supreme Leader over The First Order, having slain Snoke and his guards (with Rey's help of course),
were those moments of weakness and susceptibility in TLJ a means for manipulating Snoke?
Luke's assertion of Kylo Ren's state immediately before the destruction of his Jedi apprentices makes it seem less likely he would be "seduced" by Rey and the Light Side. Rather, Kylo Ren's behavior seems almost subtly purposed to
convince Snoke of a non-existent struggle with the Light, thus masking his end game of completely supplanting him. In other words, did Kylo manipulate Snoke (who intended to bring Kylo to a tipping point to turn him completely by having him execute Rey and then Luke), into connecting and then bringing him and Rey together, thus to give him the opportunity he needed to destroy Snoke and take control?
