Comparing TLJ Luke - Ben to Legends Luke - Jacen is interesting and much food for fanfights. But more interesting I think is, what would have happened had Legends solution been used in TLJ, and TLJs solution used in Legends? Imagine Rey killing Kylo at the end of TLJ after he killed Snoke and they briefly fought as one. Ben/Kylo dead, Leia feels it on Crait and Luke feels it on Ach-To. What then? -would Rey take the First Order throne and be approached by Palpatine, having fallen herself due to killing someone and having been abused as a weapon by Luke? -Would Rey return to the Resistance as if nothing happened? Would the Resistance and Leia fear her for going along with such a decision? -Would Luke still refuse to train her or return? And the other scenario: In LOTF, Jaina Solo is about to head to Jacen to face him, as Luke reconsiders and appears out of the blue himself standing between Jacen and his goal. Luke duels Jacen and Jaina fears for Luke staying in the light despite being glad he took the burden off of her. And with the major battle won due to Jacen being stalled by duelling Luke, Jacen would stab Luke with his lightsaber only to discover he is fake, a Doppelganger projection from afar (as in TLJ). Jaina leaves as Jacen finally has lost everyone, unredeemed. But he is alive and out there still. What would happen next? -Jacen dethroned and without allies as Abeloth's ascend is imminent -The Jedi and Skysolos being wary of his return and blaming Abeloth shenangians on him as he too notices them and tries to deflect the wrong accusations as well as find the true source -Jacen instead of Krayt having to join with the Jedi to defeast Abeloth in the end? Interesting scenarios. Thougths?
