"I will finish what you started..."
Bold and dangerous words from one masked Dark Side practitioner and warrior to the remains of another- Kylo Ren to his late Grandfather, Darth Vader, in a now classic moment from THE FORCE AWAKENS. Note the intriguing stills camera angle used here, not seen in the finished movie.
This scene was originally planned for earlier in the film, but was shifted to later on by the film's editors- the idea of Kylo Ren showing vulnerability to the light adding weight that he might not commit patricide. But we all know he ultimately did!
Just what exactly did Ben Solo see in the Force, and discover in his exploration of Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader's history/dominion of the Dark Side, that would set him on his path to ultimate evil? Here's hoping we'll get those answers, as well as more unique and disturbing insights into Kylo Ren and this intriguing sequence, with EPISODE VIII.
