Was Kylo Ren lying about Rey’s parents in The Last Jedi?


Rey’s parents. Truth? Or lies from the Dark, in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

As Rey and Kylo Ren finished off the last of the Praetorian guards in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we see something truly special happen. Kylo Ren knows something about Rey’s parents.

As Kylo Ren is explaining to Rey his plan for ruling the galaxy, he says he wants her to join him,  bringing peace to the galaxy. Of course, Rey is crushed and broken by this after she thought 100% Ben Solo would come back to the Light Side.

As Kylo Ren is going through his speech about letting the past die, he brings up Rey’s parents, and like the Sith, he attempts to get Rey to use her own feelings against her.

He reveals to Rey that her parents were worthless, pathetic and in some paupers grave on Jakku. The problem with this is, I don’t believe Kylo.

More from Dork Side of the Force

The Sith have been known to lie and manipulate their way into getting what they want.

Kylo Ren needed a weak and vulnerable Rey so he could try to seduce her to the Dark Side.

I believe Kylo Ren didn’t see Rey’s parents and just made it up so she could “move on” and join him.

Everything he said was to further his agenda and become unstoppable. Rey resisted, and here we are now.

Another reason why I don’t believe Kylo Ren is because that ship flying away in The Force Awakens does not look like a junk traders ship.

It’s more of a ship that a Jedi would use; something shiny and small, nothing big enough for a trader/smuggler to utilize.

It’s those two reasons why I believe we still don’t know the truth about Rey’s parents. Plus, the whole ordeal surrounding that seemed to come to a convenient sudden stop, without further explanation.
