**SPOILERS FOR AFTERMATH: LIFE DEBT!!**
I would put it at around 95% confirmed that the character mentioned in Life Debt is in fact Snoke. There are just too many facts that line-up between the two. I won’t go into full detail, but if you haven’t read the book and have no clue what I’m talking about, this Tumblr post goes into great details and breaks it down perfectly. Check that out by clicking here.
In the book, it says that a young Gallius Rax (A.K.A., probably Snoke) meets Palpatine and is assigned to protect something sacred on Jakku. Palpatine even says this about what he will be protecting: “It was significant a thousand years ago, and it will be significant again.”.
So what is Palpatine talking about in this exerpt? He also says they will be building something underground there. This is so crazy that I love it. It puts a spin on every theory we’ve been thinking since we’ve seen TFA. Now, Jakku IS important, and Rey’s lineage is even more interesting to me. It CANNOT be a coincidence that Rey is from Jakku now. That line from Finn has more of a meaning to me now: “Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku?”.
So let’s speculate on what it could be.
1. A Sith Temple
2. Sith Relics
3. A bunch of Kyber Crysrals
4. A tomb
5. Sith Plans/Technology that help with the construction of the Death Star
Other than that, I really don’t know right now. I would love to hear any theories on this issue, so leave a comment or tweet by clicking here!
