If she is Luke's daughter, why wouldn't he tell Han and/or Leia about it ? Also, the look he has at the end is "who the heck are you and what are you doing with my light sabre ?!?" not "oh hi daughter". Not to mention there is no indication Luke has any kids or that he hooked up with anyone post ROTJ. Would he not keep some sort of tabs on his own kid to know she's looking for him/found the map ?

On the other hand, it'd make sense to hide baby Rey if she's Ren's sister once he went dark (notice how he perks up any time she is mentioned?). She certainly seemed to gel with Han Solo (consider how quickly he gives her a job), plus it adds more weight to the death scene and ultimate bro/sis showdown coming our way. That Leia/Rey hug seemed to speak volumes...of course, there is the matter of Han and Leia not indicating her as a daughter. Maybe someone - Luke - erased their memory. Maybe they haven't seen her since she was left on that desert planet and don't know what she looks like now. But they do sense a connection...

Han clearly knew who she was. There's a scene where someone asks him and he goes to tell them, but they fade to the next scene.

Luke has obviously spent the last 30 plus years growing a beard, and thats all. No way he has had any children, or done anything other than climb around on an island and grow a beard, thats all.

As for Rey "turning" R2 on, well, he has good taste i suppose. I'm no droid but ill be a red-armed freak if she didn't turn me on.

JK...i have no idea what im talking about.

The most likely scenario is she's the child of Luke or Leia/Han. The accent could be a clue as in general in this universe only those born in the central core of the Empire/Republic have proper English accents. So this may point to her mother being from thereabouts.

The abandonment still gives me pause though. At least with Luke and Leia, they were put into adoptive families, not just left in the clutches random scavenger. It just seems so out of character for Luke, Han or Leia to just abandon a small child.

Well, you saw in the flashback scene that there was some kind of explosion going on, so it might not have been so much by choice.

I CAN SEE LUKE!

I don't know how you're able to sleep at night.

I like the Rey/Obi-Wan theory. Don't know if it would actually make sense, but I like it.

Im sure he often say "the end is the beginning is the end" or "today is the greatest day that I've ever known (for training you)" or something like that

Well, I guess I'm just used to it now. He's always there and it's kind of comforting.

Great picture! I have been all over Ireland, but I have yet to go to Skellig Michael or the Blasket Islands.
