Recently we ran a poll that gave out a pretty surprising result. But first, the question:
Which of the following would annoy you most over the course of #StarWars episode 8 and 9 if they actually happened on screen? Vote & RT!

So, Reylo ran away with this one. I can’t say I disagree. It’s an awful, depressing thought for many reasons, the least of which that it takes a great character like Rey, and reduces her to yet another girl with bad judgement in guys. Nope, Rey is better than that and Kylo…well…he doesn’t deserve her.
But what about the other options? 23% of respondents thought that revisiting the chosen one prophecy is a bad idea. This is my pick for most annoying option. Let’s tarnish the legacy of Lucas’ work, and the central character by reducing his role to that of a never-was. Everything we learned about Anakin and his power, his destiny would have been for naught.
Luke without a lightsaber? A fright to be sure, but I *think* there’s a version of this trilogy where a saberless Luke can still be compelling. I don’t want to see it, but I’m preparing myself for it.
Snoke is Plagueis? A scant 10% don’t like this idea. Seems like people are more or less cozy with the idea that Palpatine’s old master is in fact still around. It’s not awful, but I’m hoping for something original.
