Kanata’s Castle #14: Kylo Ren: The Rightful Heir and Legacy of the Lightsaber

by Kanata's Castle

In today’s episode of Kanata’s Castle, Becca and Devon continue their “Pathway to The Last Jedi” by discussing the infamous Kylo Ren. Is he the rightful heir? Does the Skywalker lightsaber belong to him? Is he just simply misunderstood? Well, sit back with an ice-cold glass of blue milk and find out!

“Pathway to The Last Jedi” continues! Throughout each trilogy, the same family undergoes the inevitable cost of changes and choice. In each trilogy, it is someone new, but yet the name remains the same. Skywalker.

Change, choice, and cost seem to follow them throughout the generations. So much so, that the “cost” is theirs to bear. It’s like the shadow that sticks to the soles of your shoe. It’s an extension of who they are. After all, Luke once told Leia, “We all have that. The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.”
