    He was also humiliated in front of Hux and the First Order. It's also obvious word of Luke's heroics spread through the galaxy fast, which you know has to piss him off. His anger was growing so I'm betting he's MUCH darker when TROS begins. If he does give up the dark side at the drop of a hat, I'll be pretty pissed.

    it’s definitely a subject that causes division lol :D
    how differently we all view him eh?

    it’s what I love about the character the most., he intrigues, challenges and divides us.

    I think he has equal disdain for both sides of the force.. light & dark, and have seen him use both:

    I think that he tapped into his light sided teachings to kill Snoke - he was calm and at peace, and used wisdom to defeat him.. there was no strength/power/anger/fear.

    didn’t anyone else notice that?

    I did. This is even more proven in the throne room fight itself.

    Rey: Was full of rage and anger. She was aggressive. She used the dark side. => Yoda: "Anger, aggression, the dark side of the Force are they."
    Kylo: He was calm and concentrated. He studied the situation. => Again Yoda: "Calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack."

    I think it was sincere. Ben has issues, but he’s been pretty blunt about his opinions. He wears his heart on his sleeve...even his rage. He’s also just a human at the end of the day. Most people must be terrified of him his whole life. Rey can hold her own against him. He’s probably relieved. His face when she moves closer to him in the elevator says it. Some read it as romance, but I just see it as being so strange an experience for him as most people have either wanted to run away or “train” him.

    Daisy Ridley: "J. J. [Abrams] was like, 'Hey, want to me up?' I was like, 'Sure.' I was like, 'Yeah, I want to hear the story [of Star Wars Episode IX].'" "Yeah, my friend now, [J. J. Abrams], he said, 'You want to meet up? I'll tell you about it.' I was like, 'Sure.' This was a few months before we started. And we were in a public, you know, cafe and he fully told me the story [from] start to finish, and he was speaking at a normal volume, and I was like, 'People can hear us,' but regardless, the story changed. So like, he told me the thing, and then like a few months later it changed." "Yeah, [I was happy with the ending.] It's epic. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. It's very exciting." (The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, June 26, 2019) (archive)

    Is it lost on you that he said a lot of these things after she rejects his offer to rule the galaxy? He feels like he has nothing to lose at that point.

    Let's not forget the sad puppy dog face, complete with streaming tears, in their last force bond moment. The man's a lot of bark and, apparently, no bite when it comes to Rey.

    USA Today - Daisy Ridley 'wasn't surprised' fans hated 'Last Jedi,' teases 'emotional' Star Wars ending

    I know right? Considering the most interesting part of that interview is Daisy saying that TROS is genre-wise different from the other two movies... Kind of fun to speculate about that. TFA was an action adventure, TLJ was a mixture of action adventure and coming of age drama... What could TROS be? My bet is a epic romantic thriller :)

    Also interesting that she found amusing the speculation about time travel... ("world between worlds" theories for Palpatine debunked?). I wonder what her opinion would be about Rey being a clone of Luke's hand...
