It was 100% Kylo Ren. When Snoke was slain, Rey had her back to him and when she turned around to see what happened, she was in complete shock. Also, Snoke narrated Kylo Ren's thoughts, which included ...

How could Kylo Ren move Luke's lightsaber in The Last Jedi when he couldn't in The Force Awakens?

Where did Ben Solo get his red lighsaber and mask when attacking Luke's Jedi School?

Visions are hard to interpret, especially when clouded with the dark side of the Force. It's not clear whether Rey is seeing the past, the future or some kind of jumbled mish-mash of conflicting ...

In the (canon) comic Rise of Kylo Ren #4 we see Ben "bleeding" the crystal from his original lightsaber, presumably at the urging of his master, Snoke. When he does so, it causes the crystal ...

How come there is no hole in the ground when Kylo Ren fired upon the self-projection of Luke Skywalker?

Actually, there is a hole behind Luke, but barely visible, and maybe a bit too small given the massive rain of fire that poured upon him. And the hole's immediate surroundings are undisturbed, which ...

Why couldn't Snoke or Kylo Ren trace Luke using the Force?

Luke has "cut himself off from the Force". This apparently makes him invisible to other Force users like Rey, Kylo Ren and Snoke. “I saw everything,” she said. “The island, and past it I felt the ...

Why did Kylo Ren drag his TIE fighter on the ground?
