    I think he means it's time for the light/dark force battle to end. Jedi aren't for balance, necessarily. And balance is what is needed.

    Jedi were a bunch of warrior monks, who weren't allowed any emotion, even good ones, that didn't stray from the light side.

    Luke also isn't one, he's just a force sensitive trained by a Jedi master.

    But even if he is "one," it's time to look past the idea that force sensitive folk focusing on the light must be warrior monks and give up attachments.

    There will still be force sensitives that stay on the light path.

    There'll be no plot twists. Did you see episode 7? I did and doubt I will see 8 as a consequence.

    Interestingly, if you go on IMDB and look through the reviews of the top 250, The Force Awakens is the only one I looked at where all of the top reviews are trashing it. It's a polarizing movie.

    7 was the same old movie all over again with new characters.

    8 will be a new movie.

    Probably will have something to do with an empire doing some measure of striking back.

    No, it will be entirely different. The First Order Retaliates.

    Alderaan cried out with millions of voices in protest of your assertion, but were suddenly silenced. I fear a terrible argument has been made.

    The Empire stuck back against the Jedi, believed to be destroyed.

    First order stuck against the Jedi first, when Snork pulled Kylo to the dark side.

    Stick to Star Trek.

    The Empire struck back by whipping Skywalker, capturing Solo, and chasing the rebels clear out of the galaxy. There were no Jedi except Yoda, Luke hadn't even completed his training. The empire didn't do anything to him. The empire struck back against the Rebellion.

    The degree to which Kylo was "pulled" remains to be seen. And again, comparing that kind of logic to the originals and prequels, Episode 2 shouldn't have been called "Attack of the Clones," Episode 3 should've.

    You mean Snoke, star wars lore master.

    They had been fighting the rebellion for freaking ever. They weren't striking back against them. They were a second away from DESTROYING the rebellion in the first movie. They were striking back against the Jedi still attempting to oppose them.

    That's why they tried to lure Luke into a trap. Amazing they stopped really focusing on the rebellion the second a Jedi trained force sensitive showed up, isn't it?

    The Jedi controlled the clones in attack of the clones, and used them against Sith targets, or so they thought. The sith were ultimately shown to be in control of them, and took their revenge against the Jedi. The names fit fine.

    What Jedi? Luke, the force-sensitive who sat next to a retired Jedi in a freighter once?

    When is it that the Empire had ceased hostilities with the Jedi? Pretty sure they never stopped.

    The Empire believed the Jedi extinct after Vader hunted them down. Seeing Obi Wan changed that. Seeing Luke changed that.

    They didn't know Luke wasn't a Jedi. We do, because he never went through the trials. But they didn't.

    You don't wage war against something you think extinct. It's the main reason I don't spend Saturdays in November looking to bag a dodo bird.

    Ah, the whole mess could have been avoided if Luke would have spoken up about his lack of qualifications.

    No, there simply wouldn't have been an episode 5 without Luke. Episode 4 would have ended with the rebellion destroyed by the Death Star.

    if Episode 4 made money, there would be an Episode 5. Han Solo comes back at the last second to save his lady, destroys the Death Star himself. Ever seen Space Balls?
