SPOILERS for video games “Knights of the Old Republic” and “Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords”
Rey and Kylo are connected by a force bond. The only other time I can think of when force bonds were part of the storyline were in the KotOR games.
Rey has some similarities to the Jedi Exile from KotOR II – both are female; both are extremely strong in their force ties; both form teams that would give their lives to protect them without a second thought; etc. Perhaps Rey was cut off from the force and her memory wiped, similar to what happened to the Exile or Revan? She is extremely powerful in the ways of the force and uses a lightsaber with deadly precision with almost no training, it’s almost as if she was trained as a jedi but can’t remember. Her body can mindlessly manipulate combative training under the proper stimuli but she can’t understand how. Perhaps someone in her group isn’t who they say they are, and they will betray her similar to what Darth Traya did.
The main story for the original KotOR involves wiping Revan’s memory using the force, and his journey back to power. Even though Revan’s connection is severed by the jedi counsel after he was captured by a jedi knight named Bastila, he was still very skilled with a lightsaber and still strong in the force. He and Bastila also form a strong force bond as a result of their paths intertwining and even become romantically involved. She led the betallion that captured Revan, then joined him in the end.
What do you guys think? Do you think the next episode would have more similarities to either of those storylines?
