    What brilliant about you post that the image isn’t showing but it doesn't matter as I know exactly what it’s going to be just by your description :D.
    Also if we are doing Ford / Indy montage they could have also used the scene from The Last Crusade with him throwing the passenger out the air ship only with a KOR down that rather convenient hole :p.

    I would only assume that Sith Lighting is a power you can train to obtain. Ren already had the terrifying appeal, incredible saber skills, and the force. I guess he just didn’t need it or he couldn’t even have that power.

    Story wise, ren didn’t need it because only Rey did to show her connection to Palpatine. Ren can’t do it because Rey inherited it from Palpatine and he isn’t skilled enough. However, starkiller had no important parents and his lightning could vaporize people on impact. So.....

    My headcanon is this:

    What you can and can't do with the force is like what people can and can't do in real life. Some things can be learned, some come naturally and some can't be done.

    I know people who can't whistle or cross their eyes. I know people who have studied an instrument for years and have become expert musicians. I also know people who can listen to a song and sit down and play it who have never taken lessons.

    In my mind three things could have happened with Ren and the lightning (cool band name, maybe):

    He never learned it
    He can't do it, like some people can't whistle
    He chose not to use it for whatever reason

    I chose to believe that it has nothing to do with family relationships or Sith rank or how committed you are to the dark side. And since it hasn't been defined, we can all believe what we want about this. (emperor)

    I agree with your analogy.

    Sure why not. Seems flimsy considering he could still do other force things but....
    (I'm being sarcastic, any reason is as good as the next)
