Because either Rey’s parents were on that departing ship or they’re dead and buried on Jakku. It can’t be both.
And Kylo can’t be trusted.
I already asked this, but are we really sure we see Rey’s parents leave in that ship? Maybe it was just a random ship and Rey imagined her parents were in there, because that would make it easier for her.
Given Rey’s response to Ben, it’s clear that Rey has maintained a myth about her parents in her mind. Why can’t she have manufactured a memory? Not that unrealistic. Indeed, there are still Star Wars fans who maintain that Luke’s first go at the grappling hook missed when SW first hit theaters.
But doesn’t the vision show things that actually happened? I mean, besides Rey being at Cloud City and elsewhere, and besides Kylo Ren having his mask on during the forest battle, and besides Rey’s parents ship flying into the Starkiller Base sucking up the sun.
I know you’re not being totally serious, but the ship flying away and Rey crying could be real. It might have been a real ship and Rey cried because she really believed her parents were on it. Maybe that was the point where she started to invent these memories.
