On Tumblr, Leticia Piroutek shared a fascinating Kylo Ren theory her father came up with after watching The Force Awakens:
"Ok so we got out of our second The Force Awakens showing and my dad was driving us home and out of nowhere he was like... Oh my god. What if Kylo Ren chose to go to the Dark Side so he could help the Light Side?"
The main idea behind this rather interesting theory is that Kylo Ren is actually some kind of sleeper Sith and is becoming a Sith Lord in order to get close to his real target.
"What if he went to the Dark Side just so he could kill [Supreme Leader] Snoke!!!!" he asks. "And that's why he's so conflicted, and that's why he feels the temptation of the Light Side stronger than the Dark."
Piroutek's dad believes that Kylo Ren is actually trying to finish what Anakin Skywalker started and not Darth Vader at all. And this is why Kylo is actually seen talking to Vader's helmet.
And there's even a connection to Kylo Ren's confrontation with Han Solo:"He had to completely turn away from his family in order to do that,' he explains. 'To become a Sith fully and completely, you have to sacrifice someone you love to death, in his case it was Han."
"That's why he tells Han he feels like he's being torn apart inside,' he added. 'Because he doesn't want to do it at all, but it's the only possible way to become a Sith and complete his task!!!!! Kylo literally utters the words 'will you help me' to Han, and Han says 'anything you need'...what he's asking is if Han will die in order for him to complete his f**king task."
But could this theory also explain why he's so interested in Rey?
"They need the personification of both sides (Kylo and Rey) in order to be strong enough to destroy Snoke,' he explains. 'He literally has to become a Sith to join forces with a Jedi. Because the Light in him is so much stronger than the Dark, and he has to get rid of it in order to do what he has to do and save the galaxy with Rey and Luke."
Piroutek ended her posting by adding: "HAN DYING WOULDNT BE FOR NOTHING, HE LITERALLY DIED SO HIS FAMILY COULD FINISH SAVING THE GALAXY. REY, KYLO, LUKE, LEIA, FINN AND POE ARE GONNA DESTROY THE LAST SITH TOGETHER AND BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
