Can Kylo Ren Be Redeemed? Here Are The Possibilities
Not to judge a book by its cover or anything, but we all knew that Adam Driverís Kylo Ren was going to be up to no good in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Seriously, no one that obsessed with Darth Vader (and not the good, Iím-gonna-save-my-son-from-this-wrinkly-old-dickweed Vader from the end of Return of the Jedi) is going to be full of sunshine, roses, and happy times. But even as villainous as he is, delivering the most crushing blows in the entire movie, the big question as Star Wars moves forward is can Kylo Ren be redeemed? Well, we have a few thoughts on this matter.
You probably already guessed this, but there are going to be major, major SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Force Awakens beyond this point. If you havenít seen the movie yet, for the love of Sweet Baby Jesus and his impending birthday in a few days, read something else. Or go watch The Force Awakens, thatís always an option. Tread cautiously, my friends.
Yes, Leia Will Ultimately Bring Him Back To The LightA motherís love is a powerful thing. And from what weíve seen thus far, Leia seems pretty convinced that there is still good in her son, that Ben Solo still lurks somewhere inside of Kylo Ren. She may wind up singing a different tune now that he has killed his father in cold blood. However, I donít think any mother wants to admit that her baby is completely gone, and itís easy to imagine her making a play for his immortal soul or whatever. And she has a chance. As she intones to Han, she appears to believe that the familial bond is even more powerful than the Force, and she even has an upper hand in that regard since, though she never trained in the ways of the Jedi, she is still strong with the Force.
