Not to judge a book by its cover or anything, but we all knew that Adam Driver’s 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, I’m-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 haven’t 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, that’s always an option. Tread cautiously, my friends.

Leia
Yes, Leia Will Ultimately Bring Him Back To The Light
A mother’s love is a powerful thing. And from what we’ve 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 don’t think any mother wants to admit that her baby is completely gone, and it’s 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.
