Maybe I already gave you my though about it but I think that Snoke was an unfinished clone of Sidious ... And I think that a new clone will come in ep 9 ...

For Rey, but also for Poe, I really do not like that they are in a permanent "God mode". They are too powerful to make interesting heroes in a movie ...

I know right? Luke, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and most of the other heroes have all been hurt one way or another in these movies, Rey and Poe on the other hand, haven't experienced anything like that, in spite of always being in combat.

My theory for Rey before TLJ was that she hadn't actually been on Jakku since she was a child.  At least that young.  I thought she was one of the Child recruits of the First Order and during her training she showed Force Sensitivity.  Before She could be taken before Snoke she was smuggled out of the FO by A Jedi Spy (Either one of Luke's students or maybe even Quinlan Vos, his fate is still unknown) and taken to Jakku then Force persuaded to stay there for her family.  It would explain (imo) not only her absolute compulsion to stay/get back to Jakku but also her familiarity with Imperial Tech and basic combat skills.

So, what I find interesting here is that you're assuming that Rey interpreted what she saw in the Force Cave on Ahch-To correctly.  You're also assuming that Kylo was telling her the truth via their connection.

Luke didn't interpret his experience correctly during his vision on Dagobah.

It's still very possible that what Rey "learned" was not the truth.  And Kylo is acting for himself, not for Rey - so he's not necessarily telling the truth either.  His line about her parents is essentially him "negging" her - saying that she's worthless and should settle for him.

As for Poe - to me, he comes across as the Wedge of this trilogy (and I would LOVE to see more of Wedge).  Wedge never suffered a serious setback in the films either...

Not really as that was my Theory Before TLJ came out.    Now, I have no theory because I just don't care.

That's because the OT wasn't about Wedge. But Wedge didn't need a ridiculous backstory, cheesy lines, and a fancy paint job to make him a great pilot; he just was. The mere fact that he survived shell-storm after shell-storm was testament to that. But he was just chill (mostly) and collected through it all, and that's what made him cool. Way cooler than Poe.

Is Poe's backstory ridiculous?  I actually liked Poe, he was a little bit Wedge, Han and Luke mixed together...which makes sense given he grew up on tales of those heroes.   But as stated, any potential was squandered

Yes it was. Flying since the age of 6? C'mon. That doesn't seem a little contrived? And if he were part Han, he'd be a little bit of a self-preserving prick. But no. He's just a good guy, with zippy one liners and all the charisma in the galaxy.
