    Rey seemed to connect to the force quite easily, particularly with that Jedi mind trick. Ive heard some say that Rey was hiding her force knowledge. But I got the impression she was totally unaware of her abilities as she discovered them. Did miss something?

    I didn't think she was hiding her abilities - the Force has awaken in her and it did powerfully so for Snoke to feel it. As for mind trick, I saw it as someone in tight place trying a bit of story/legend she knows about as well as Maz Kanata's advice to feel the Force (which does even more in her fight with Kylo). Just my read on it.

    She had heard the myths about Jedi and was force sensitive. She never tried to use it before evidently. Han might have shared some of the stories during trips on the Falcon that where not in the movie etc...

    Pre-existing, memory altered to forget them, moment she touched the saber it awoke.

    It would make more sense if they were pre-existing, but the story seems to imply they were newly discovered.
