Here's a few that were posted from the old thread: The Hero, The Villain and the Modern Fairytale The Descent of the Heroine’s Journey in The Force Awakens Bride of the Monstrous: Meeting the Other in The Force Awakens Death and the Maiden Rebirth of the “Son”: the art of Kylo Ren’s redemption Mirroring, opposites and the personification of Yin & Yang in the final fight between Kylo Ren and Rey The Force Bond Awakens The Normal and Altered Futures There are lots more out there so anyone else is free to link to any that I missed. I just love all of the thoughtful, in-depth discussion (and speculation) Kylo Ren and Rey have sparked. To me, they are undoubtedly the two most fascinating characters of the new trilogy and I believe their paths are inexorably intertwined. Yes! For anyone interested, ashesforfoxes discusses this further in her Rey/Kylo Ren meta: Bride of the Monstrous: Meeting the Other in The Force Awakens. It's so intelligent, thoughtful and filled with so much insight. Definitely worth the read.
