After close observation of Kylo’s lightsaber I believe it is in fact Darth Vader’s. It would have been damaged after look disarmed Vader and it fell down the shaft. Then with the help of Snoke’s knowledge of ancient saber technology, he repaired it. But due to the damaged crystal or even the hilt itself, it’s unstable. If just the hilt, I imagine it will be more stable in episode 8 as it’s clearly been improved. Not just some welded junk.
The red crystal around Luke’s neck is actually his original green crystal. Possibly while experimenting with the dark side of the force, in an attempt to create balance, Luke temporarily fell to the dark side and in a moment of RAW power, he accidentally destroyed the Jedi temple himself.
This is the raw power that he’d only seen once before. The power that scares him now and why he went into exile. Not to protect himself, but to protect others from what he is capable of.
As we know with new canon, the color of the crystal is dependent on the force user and their position with the force. This is why his green crystal is now red and retired from it’s hilt and worn around his neck instead.
Then how did he make his crystal bleed?
Seeing as how it’s now canon from the Vader comics.
That’s where the inevitable plot hole fits in.
But I’m not sure. Maybe it happens naturally in some cases? Technically Anakin’s should have turned green by epIII and red by the end of it. They’ll probably go back and edit it in the future.
I think that Luke carries part of Darth Vader’s kyber crystal, and Kylo uses another part, which is why Kylo’s saber doesn’t work right.
