With the ignition of the Skywalker lightsaber into Supreme Leader Snoke it ended all reason to know about his back story, or did it?
I find it more imperative to find out who this guy was now and hopefully we will get a full explanation maybe in a book.
Who was he?
Why was the Emperors theme playing in his throne room in The Last Jedi after we had the Plagues theme for his hologram in Ep 7?
How was he so powerful?
Was he a sith? He certainly had more power than Rey and had force lightning.
Did he train Kylo? He said he would finish his training but didn’t seem too bothered at the beginning of Episode 8. In fact he was going to dump him until he brought Rey to him (if he brought Rey and Kylo together, why was he slapping Ren on the back?). We now have two untrained Force uses against each other. That makes me think there will be a couple of years gap until episode 9.
Fans say we never asked about Palatines back story after 5 and 6 but we hadn’t seen anything before episode 4, so we didn’t know anything about any of the characters.
We never saw Snoke in the original trilogy and he came from nowhere. All we know is he took over the Empire in the unknown regions.
Maybe a back story would make him more interesting. Maybe he isn’t really dead? Black Diamond anyone?
Thank you for reading.
