    Is there a Shmi? Like, Palpatine's son/clone was not FS sensitive. Palpatine needed a womb. So, Rey's mom. But if the son/clone was not FS, the child wouldn't have been FS either, right? You can have a FS child through a FS father+womb (Anakin/Padme or through a FS mother and her own womb (Leia).

    So if Rey is a Palpatine, so is her mother. But nothing is said about Jodie Comer, and she looks a lot like Leia's mother in the ROTJ novel, who was not Padme: 'running, hiding in a trunk, parting embraces, flesh torn from flesh'.

    So, someone else. You don't need a father, just a mother and a certain ability learned from Plagueis; and maybe, this time, a certain object (a helmet, let's say) Ben was sent away the same year Rey was born. Too much Vader in him.

    So, a mother: a Palpatine, in the sense of sharing a common ancestor with the emperor. According to him, that ancient throne was Rey's too. It is in our blood.

    The 'mechanism' has to do with Lucas' ideas. This hypothetical character would have to do with JJ. This us Sydney Bristow's mom from Alias:
    The idea being, baby Rey was left in a basket, like Baby Moses, and the TROS parents found her. (Luke's temple was destroyed via sith lightning in the Kylo comic. Was that an 'agent'?)
