    I just stumbled on this thread, and for the most part it NAILS everything we know about The Rise of Skywalker.

    And I do remember folks in the forums here commenting on Rey's saber style being so reminiscent of Palpatine. Abrams very well could have been planting that as a seed. Anyway, a fun trip down memory lane.

    The plot of the last three episodes being tied together is a complete enigma.

    You mean that part where it was predicted Rey would be a descendant of Palpatine, and in fact she IS a descendant of Palpatine? I'd say that's ap retty big chunk of spoiler material. And even though I don't link to the plot leak thread, it's easily inferred.

    Her being a Palpatine IS not a fact. Unless you've seen the movie already and it actually showed you concrete evidence that she was.

    2nd biggest shocker in cinematic history would be revealing Rey is Palpatine resurrected.

    Too much has come out of leaked spoilers that concretely points at Rey being connected to the Emperor for that plot point to be false, even if one isn't personally following said spoilers.

    There were theories about Rey being related to everyone (including no one), so one of them was bound to be right. It's like placing bets on every number in the casino.

    Too much that has came out that is super convoluted. Nothing concretely points to Rey's connection to Palpatine. And don't say, but, but she swings a lightsaber like him...

    If anything, Palpatine manipulates her into healing him and all hell breaks loose and that's all there is to it. No connection, not a relative.

    Up goes the count on what Rey can be...

    1. A Skywalker
    2. A Solo
    3. A Kenobi
    4. A Palpatine
    5. A nothing
    6. A something

    Thank God she is too white to be a Windu or a Yoda...

    There have been no reports that JJ did not allow Daisy to shave her legs and axillas (arm pits) so Chewbacca is out as well

    Rey is a reincarnated Ewok that died at the battle of Endor. This explains her natural combat skills.

    We'll see what happens, but I think there's too much smoke surrounding Rey and the Emperor based on what's been leaked for there not to be a fire there.
