    That's a really good point. By pinning Snoke's death on Rey, Kylo has in a way given the Resistance another beacon of hope.

    Most of the galaxy doesn't even know who Snoke is, so I don't see the fact of who killed him becoming an issue outside FO - for a little bit. As I stated elsewhere, Hux might be power hungry, ideologically blinded buffoon, but he is not stupid. When things settle a little bit, he will start questioning Kylo's version. If that last look he gives Kylo in TLJ is anything to go by, he already started.

    Hux has gotta know he's lying.
    Ren's story makes zero sense. : o p

    Yeah because how can a simple scavenger from Jakku possibility kill someone as powerful as Snoke (no sarcasm) she can’t without help

    I'd love to see the scene where the Resistance fighters are as skeptical as insufferable fanboys.

    Poe: "Friends, this is our hero who saved us from total destruction on Crait."

    Resistance fighter #1: "Uhhh, how did she do that? She's barely even used a lightsaber before."

    Poe: "I mean, you saw her help us escape to the Falcon. She's got raw power."

    RF#1 (as an aside): "Told ya she was a Mary Sue."

    RF#2: "Yeah, how did she lift those rocks anyway? And how did Leia use the force when we were on the Raddus?"

    Poe: "Are you guys actually asking me how the Force works?"

    Hux: So, by herself, she killed Snoke, then killed the entire Praetorian Guard, then knocked you out, then just left?
    Kylo: . . . . . She got the drop on us. She’s really limber.
    Hux: . . . . . . Well that checks out.

    Even if he does suspect, what do we expect comes of it? A coup? Isn’t that a concern either way?

    oh totally. he's soooo plotting in that last moment.
    and partly because he knows Ren's a liar and a liability.

    Yeah I think Hux never believed that, but when Kylo self proclaim SL using the force, it was pretty clear that didn't even matter.. And from that last look he gave after the battle, it was also clear he's not gonna be his rabid cur for too long :p

    It's just that the relationship was already shown to be incredibly contemptuous. Now one of them has the upper hand and the other is getting slammed into walls. Hux has to be wondering how long before Ren 'separates' him too. I'd expect him to be plotting whether he believed the story or not. Y'know?

    It's not like Hux wasn't going to shoot an unconscious Ren in the head but daggummit! He woke up before Hux got up the nerve to unholster the weapon and fire.

    DId you know that moment where Hux contemplates killing Ren wasn’t in the script. It was the actors suggestion. I know his name but I’m not even going to attempt to spell it

    For a long time I wanted some sort of Resistance from the Imperial side against the FO.
    I guess FO civil war works too.
    Hux will need allies for coup against Kylo Ren. What about that Admiral? Where is Nash? Alive!Snoke? Some one else who is Force sensitive who is the same age/older than Kylo Ren?

    I can't appreciate it. The actors were so awkward.

    That’s fair, the scene and the movie isn’t going to please everyone. Thanks for your perspective
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 14, 2018, Original Post Date: Feb 14, 2018 ---
    I thought a civil war would be interesting and a different way to go. And I feel really cool, but Not sure how that works in the span of a single movie though. So I guess time will tell

    Well, the First Order will find out that Kylo Ren killed Snoke himself as I am very sure Rey would have told the whole Rebellion what happened and who killed who, and that message will spread on throughout the galaxy ( with the myth of Rey killing Snoke spreading too to counter the truth ). :)

    Mmmmmm I don’t know about Rey telling everyone (obviously I could be wrong) but I mean she could barely tell Finn how she escaped in TFA...however to counter my own statement one could say that the pair didn’t have time at the end of TFA and other things happened causing that conversation to never happen

    But also how’s she going to explain why she went to the supremacy alone in an escape pod no less (so no escape plan) to fight alone in the throne room...I guess we will find out in ep IX muawhaha...or not
