    To me, Maz is now just a hobo that lives on the streets dragging her shopping cart with her cooking pot and other belongings.

    Personally I really like Maz and I agree that as a plot device she seems to act almost as a guidepost. Gently helping to move the plot along. The degree of which she is able to do this depends on her significance as a character and level of knowledge.

    She says 'I am no Jedi' this could be yet another instance of a force user who falls on neither side of the conflict and will continue to offer the main charcters a different perspective.

    I hope she stays 'unaligned' I think her character will really suffer if they have her declare to one or the other.

    I like these new non aligned charcters in SW canon- Maz, the Bendu, Ahsoka, Guardians of the Whills, Dagoyan masters, all those other force groups on Jedha etc.....I hope we get more of them so the force isn't restricted to jedi and sith, light and dark.

    If there was going to be a "Maz twist" i would almost expect it to be revealed (or at least alluded to) that she was a former JEDI as is why and how she ended up with Luke's lightsaber and is so adept in using the Force...because she knew he was still alive (through the Force)...and saw that "the one" (not "chosen" either) was coming for it.

    Maz is a former Jedi.

    Just a theory. :)

    Don't think she is dark side but I could see her having more importance than has been alluded to so far. Going by the Poe Dameron comics I'm also beginning to think Lor San Tekka will have greater importance than his cameo in TFA suggested, albeit posthumously

    I could see there being a twist that Maz was a former jedi, or maybe part of some other type of FS order, like the guardians of the whills...But if Maz was a main villain or the key to everything, I think that would be a bit too far...

    I do think there is a surprise coming with her though. Perhaps her and Lor San Tekka have some common history that's relevant to how she ended up with the lightsaber.

    In Poe Dameron #20 Lor San Tekka gets arrested on Cato Neimoidia after breaking into a high security vault to get a look at an artefact that was crafted using the dark side and the light and was designed to be used by users of both sides.

    I was thinking that could possibly play into TLJ somehow.

    TWIST: Maz is something more than just being a cheap feminised Yoda ripoff copy.

    Maz was married once and her husband gifted her the statue of her that she placed on top of the Takodana castle....I wonder if she and/or her husband was a jedi once and left to order to marry?

    Takodana was the site of an ancient battle between jedi and sith....this is pure speculation but what if she and her husband were a jedi and sith in the battle who decided not to take sides and walked away from the battle. This could bring about the discussion that the force is more than just about being jedi or sith.
