    I've really never given this too much thought, primarily because Obi-Wan was so devoted to the order and followed the code to the letter.

    I know people's outlook and perception change as they get older, and Ben's might have also, BUT he was undercover watching Luke and would only endanger someone else's life by getting too close to them....so no, I don't buy it.

    Pretty much this. I feel like it would be a massive stretch at this point.

    The ROTJ book (and original screenplay) established that Uncle Owen is Ben Kenobi's brother. This relationship was retconned out of existence in the prequels, however I suppose they could certainly bring something similar back, though I think it would be a bad idea.

    I agree. Though, I'd be very surprised if she is still just "Rey" by the end of all this. I don't think they would intentionally not give Rey a last name without it to be for nothing by the end of IX. Ya know, she's just Rey and that's all there is to it. When everyone has a last name and what not. Yes there is Finn, but that's explained and Phasma I don't know if her book states her first name. Obviously the films don't bring it up.

    She could take the name Skywalker at the end of IX this still be from a random bloodline yet still set up why she never had a last name.

    Likewise here.

    The whole "Rey nobody" thing just seems too damned easy, and I HOPE that they at LEAST give her an identity. I mean, sure, I GET that even a nobody can have the Force at their side (see Anakin), but I think there needs to be some background that makes her a nobody, and is more believable that Kylo's self-serving "You're a nobody" statement...make me believe.

    You have to have 30 posts to like a post, I believe.

    So... JJ included it in TFA, knowing it was irrelevant, just to add mystery? That would be a seriously weird choice, indeed. It is one thing to set up a future potential, but this all makes Rey's Kenobi-esqueness & Kenobi speaking her name a red herring! Soo weird...

    We all know that truth has certain points of view. Just being the unknown son/daughter of an old hermit(jedi) who had a one night stand with a girl he met in a certain wretched hive of scum and villainy that he knew pretty well, doesn't prevent you from becoming a filthy drunken junk trader.
    So Kylo Ren might have told the truth from a certain point of view. And he might even be completely convinced that he has.

    Thanks. I have been searching for a button since I joined. I get not being able to dislike prior to 30, but not being able to like? Wouldn't want to be too positive would we?

    You're welcome! :)
    It's probably to ensure that you don't make another account to give your main account likes. Getting to 30 posts is fairly hard and will put most people off trying to like their own stuff. (han)

    It's actually a measure in place that stops new members that only come here to "Spam rate" posts that they don't like...which happened a lot before the rule implementation.

    It's something that you have to earn after you've proven that you're not just here to spam the boards. :)

    Wow, that takes a real loser to go to such effort to build themselves up, but such is the society we live in!

    ...and I happen to enjoy it very much!!

    ANYHOO, you wouldn't believe the effort that people go to, in order to dump gibberish and other undesirables in these halls...it's just a safety measure.

    Oh BTW, welcome to the Cantina!

    Let’s not jump to conclusions. Here is a quote from the author herself

    “My darlings, there are no spoilers here. I watched the same movies you did. I don’t have secret information. Inheritance doesn’t have to rely on blood. Ben Solo is a product of his mother, his mentor, his grandfather. Rey is called by Luke’s saber. That’s enough for me.”

    No problem. My first reaction was holy crap. I then decided I would see what I could find about the book and I found her quote.
