    Didn't see a thread suitable for obscure things in the film that might generate some interest.

    First One:
    Leia's death is one catalyst for Ben's return. But her body doesn't fade until Ben Solo dies and similarly fades.
    What does this imply?

    Second:
    Palpatine was channeling all Sith, and if Rey had killed him she would apparently have become the new host.
    (Although when she refuses he discovers they are the dyad and settles for just rejuvenating the form he currently holds).
    So... does this change anything about Luke's temptation to strike him down in ROTJ?

    Wait a second I just realised something...

    In the opening crawl the first line is "The dead speak!"

    And then it says the whole galaxy heard a transmission from Palpatine's spirit. Did this come up again, I can't remember.

    What did he say?

    Yeah there was a lot to chew on.

    But I'm more interested in theories on what Leia's spirit was up to before her body disappeared.

    I can't be the only one who feels like it hints at something hidden. Cmon guys.

    Like some kind of aid to Kylo and Rey at the very least - maybe she adds her light to Ben's to pull him back.

    Haven't seen it yet but do the Snoke Clones already have the scarring and damage stuff that Snoke had or can you tell from how they show them?

    Who were all those guys watching on Rey and Palps at the end? Sith Ghosts? Secret Sith fans? How long had they been there?

    I can already see Mike Stoklasa reading out a list of unanswered questions akin to Prometheus.

    One last post on this...

    Remember the leak we had that said Luke was originally responsible for helping Han "speak" to Kylo?

    Replace Luke with Leia there.
    She dies moments before this scene happens, but her physical form doesn't yet fade away.
    What if it is a mother reaching out to a fallen son in the image of their dead husband and father.

    Thats my theory in a nutshell.
    When Kylo/Ben dies Leia has done her job and she physically disappears, fully becoming one with the force.

    Another reason I think this - her "quitting training as a Jedi because she foresaw her son would die" is so cryptic and spookily aligns with the fact they die so close together and both presumably become Jedi ghosts.

    It may be coincidental of course.

    Han's true consciousness. It would be cooler.
