That's a title on par with "WandaVision", but I'm still pretty excited to see how this ends.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I like the title because people are really taking it at face value and not considering that it could be (and almost certainly is) misdirection.

Ray stops pissing about and gets real with Kylo Ren during their next fight. Roars like a lunatic and gives him a thunderous kick in the groin. He goes down, screaming his fool head off, and while he's writhing around, she takes his lightsabre. He struggles to his feet. 'Give it back!' She sticks it down the back of her pants. 'Uh-oh! What now? You gonna go in after it? Huh? Lalala! Whee!' Starts dancing around, wiggling her butt at him, while he gets more and more flustered. 'Does the baby want his pwetty swowd? Boo hoo hoo! Poow wittoe Kywo! You gonna cry? Huh?!?'

There's not enough childish taunting in Star Wars. Jedi kids should have more of a Goonies thing going on----------little bit of swearing and shoulder-punching would go a long way toward making the prequels feel more authentic.

I hate it because it's clunky & awkward to say.

Real reason people love 'The Goonies' is because it feels real. Adults forget that their dumb little ten-year-olds fight and laugh at fart jokes and tell each other to shut up and go to hell and throw dead birds at each other and dare each other to eat mud, and draw skulls on things to feel tough. Any ten-year-old who tells you he wants to be a doctor when he grows up, you can bet your eye-teeth he's talking about Doctor Jones.

Jedi kids should be scrappers. Tough evil little assh*les, like Huck Finn and the Artful Dodger, and Jubilee. Cindel and Wicket. Little Orphan Annie and Jon Snow. Harry Potter, Short Round and Agatha Heterodyne. Miscreants. You wanna tell me the Ben Kenobi of the real movies, the nutcase who chopped a man's arm off for pushing Luke, never threw rocks at cars or looked up cheerleaders' skirts? The old looney-tune who led a heist on the goldang Death Star never once sprayed the neighbour cat with the hose for hissing at him. Yeah, I'm so incredibly sure.

Random theories I'm pulling out of my butthole:

Rey IS the Force incarnate.

Rey was conceived the same way Anakin was (But I feel that would be too stupid)

Skywalker is revealed to be a general term for a Force-user. The way I think everything should end is that Jedi and Sith no longer exist - people use the Force freely and train how they wish and are judged by how they use their powers - regardless whether they draw it from the Light or Dark side.

Also another theory
