What if Rey joined Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
Rey-lo for the win! Now let’s just imagine a place that existed a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and instead of Rey denying Kylo Ren’s offer to join him in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, she instead accepts his proposal. What would happen? Where would the state of the galaxy be?
Now the obvious idea would be that Kylo Ren and Rey would establish a new Sith Order, following in his grandfather, Darth Vader’s footsteps in a sense, ruling the galaxy together.
However, if the most powerful Force users left — after Luke’s death — weighed the scales down towards the Dark Side, the balance of the Force would be in total chaos.
What would the Force do in response to Rey-lo?? Create another Anakin, establsihing a new chosen one to restore balance once again?

Would the Resistance be able to fight off two Sith or Dark Side users? With the numbers they have, it’s highly doubtful.
What if it went the other way though? What if Rey was actually able to save Kylo Ren? What then?
How would the Force respond to Ben Solo returning to the Light? Would another Emperor or Supreme Leader rise from the Unknown?
We would have seen an ultra-powerful duo, either way, whether it was on the Light or Dark side, the balance would’ve been upset.
So the natural order of the Force, it seems, would be having one powerful Light Side user, with the other encompassing the Dark. That’s the way of things, the way of the Force.
