    Star Wars was once known and still is for the biggest SHOCK moment of all time in cinematic history. I want to believe TPTB want this type of reveal again. They wanted it from the get go. They were wise to not copy the OT format and give us one in the middle. It was like some expected a REVEAL in the middle of this trilogy. Instead they deceived us and gave us false information to further steer us astray. They are saving the big bomb shell for the end. At least I think. Just another reason JJ was brought back. He started it all. He had ideas and thoughts and story plots for the characters he created. The possibilities are there. I cant wait to see how this all wraps up.

    That no one dies and that Rey is really a solo/Skywalker. I think that’s where he was going with it

    A breadcrumb moment implying it's not truly 'the end'.

    L-3 allowed Rey to take the Falcon, because she hated Unkar Plutt.

    I like this idea. Lando is back so it's possible. I just dnt see them mentioning L3 in this movie.

    The big shock will be that everybody agrees that it’s a great movie.

    They're definitely doing a moment where Lando puts his hand on the MF and says something like 'this ship...she means more to me than you'll ever know.'

    As for the big shock of IX..... maybe that the 'awakening' in VII had nothing to do with Kylo. YES, Rey is the Light, but the Dark.....we are yet to meet, and who that individual is shocks us to our very core...

    Rey's true heritage will show her to be the embodiment of the Light. Kylo, as 'nothing', must then choose between the Light and the Dark. We don't know which he chooses till the last minute, when he takes Rey's hand and they both face off against....someone. Kylo dies, though, in another big moment, we later find he has children, twins called Han & Leia. The trilogy ends with Rey and Finn taking them and raising them as their own.

    I do have a genuine fear that they are going bring in something from way out of left field, something that supersedes Luke's importance, as a way to explain away everything, as if this person or concept was behind it the whole time. Something also tells me that there will be certain politically correct connotations to that as well, but I won't go into it more than that.

    Actually, while it would painful to watch, I wouldn't be surprised if it's the other way around.

    R2-D2 sacrifices himself to save the galaxy. Not a dry eye in the theater.

    I can’t see JJ doing anything prophecy related, beyond calling the film Balance of the Force. So I think it will be Rey’s lineage. Not necessarily making her a Skywalker (though I think audiences would love that), but also not making her a nobody.

    Nien Nunb is the reincarnated Darth Plagueis and sought revenge against Palpatine first in the OT and makes his move for control of the galaxy after lurking in the shadows for decades with force-powered piloting skill & sensing danger and avoiding it.
