When the Knights of Ren were mentioned the first time, I always expected them to be like mini-bosses in each film. Then have the classic final boss fight vs. Kylo in Episode IX. But that’s just too generic, I know. I’ve played too many video games, haha!
I’m just amazed that they have had only one appearance so far (in a Force vision, of all things). Now that I know Palpy is back, I don’t know if I really care about the Knights anymore. I think I would’ve liked seeing Rey take on the Knights + Kylo in the final act rather than Darth Sidious playing mind tricks throughout.
By the way, what are your guys’ thoughts on the theories of Palpatine just being a mere front for Plagueis all along? Or Palpatine being Plagueis himself / resurrected über vers. 2.0?
