SPOILER What do you think Snoke's role was in this trilogy?

What was Snoke in all this?

  1. A pawn and vessel for Palpatine

  2. A random powerful dark side user who wanted to finish what the Sith, Palpatine and Vader started

    Could be but I think more likely the explanation is far simpler. JJ's goal and the basic directive he was given was to do a soft reboot of ANH/OT. The actual shape was left up to him but with virtually no time to make the movie because it needed to be rushed out in 2015 he simply needed an Emperor figure just like he needed an Anakin/Vader and Anakin/Luke one so Snoke was created. Since he wasn't going to do either of the next 2 movies it wasn't his problem. With RJ he also wasn't going to do the last movie so he didn't need to worry about who Snoke was. There was no actual plan or story. If there was one then n CT would not have been fired and JJ brought back. It's not like JJ is using that story or script.

    JJ based him very much on the Emperor/Sidious while RJ had him an entirely different character.

    I don't think that is all that realistic and even if it were JJ is exactly the wrong person to do it. He simply doesn't pay attention to details nor is that interested in story or character. He just goes with what "feels" right to him no matter how nonsensical it is. See TFA.
