    That's a fascinating way to handle this.

    I know that fans feel that Mortis deserves more closure and explanation, but I agree that explicitly trying to explain it would probably take more than a single movie's runtime (and that's not even considering, you know, having the rest of the movie outside of that reference).

    But really, for all Mortis' awesome bits that it adds to canon, it ultimately adds up to some pretty standard mysticism that could be relatively easily alluded to in this final film with minimal exposition. Best of both worlds, then- easily palatable story for the casual audience, huge lorebuilding and fanservice for the obsessed fans.

    Rey heals Palpatine and that's how he comes back.

    Rey and refeemed Ben go back in time and kill Episode 1 Palpatine. Episode 9 ends with Anakin leaving Watto’s shop and going home to Shmi as all the events that happened in the Skywalker Saga never happened and the galaxy stays at peace.

    That's more or less my thinking. We know Filoni and Lucas both had some influence on the story, just based on what KK has said about their roles in the bigger picture recently. An dit's undeniable the approach the sequels have taken toward the Force has been more mystical and mysterious. If leaks and rumors are to be believed, Ben and Rey form a Force Dyad that's eerily similar to the Brother and Sister, with Palpatine serving as the Father. The rumors also indicate all of the explicitly mystical stuff was excised though, mostly because folks found it confusing, although the implication remains. So I think we could be right! The mystical nature of the Force revealed in the Mortis story could underpin the importance of Ben and Rey, and their unprecedented powers, in TROS, and the folks who watched TCW get an extra special treat.

    I like the idea, that Palpatine (or his master which I don't name here) knew of the prophecy and created Anakin to use it to manipulate the Jedi. But what he actually did was fulfilling the prophecy by doing so.

    Bad guys win. There is no redemption for Ben. Resistance is destroyed and movie ends with Kylo Ren still Supreme Leader or as Palpatine's apprentice or ally.
