Details about a possible flashback scene in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” has surfaced online. According to the details discovered, one of Kylo Ren’s knights went rogue. This is the reason why the character was killed in a flashback scene.

The following article contains spoilers from “The Force Awakens” and the upcoming Rian Johnson film. Readers who don’t wish to know any details about these films are advised to stop here.

The Knights of Ren were very briefly teased in the Force vision sequence in the JJ Abrams film. But did the fans actually see more than what they believe? The film may have just given away a big clue that has so far been missed by many people.

In a new video posted on YouTube [see below], Mike Zeroh points out that the credits of the film reveals Mark Stanley as a Knight of Ren. He is the only actor to actually get a credit for playing one of the men who are supposed to be the followers of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is expected to give fans the back story of the Knights of Ren. But why then was Stanley’s character so important that he got a special mention, while the other followers of Kylo Ren were not?

Mike explains that this is perhaps because Stanley’s character went rogue, and Kylo Ren had to hunt him down. The big clue comes from the Force vision sequence, in which a character gets killed by the cross guard lightsaber.

The fans may know the dead character as Clan Leader, but Mike points out how strikingly similar Stanley is to the actor who plays this role, suggesting that in fact this is Stanley’s character in the film. That means that Kylo Ren killed one of his former followers.

It seems like Stanley’s character left the Knights of Ren for some reason and then formed his own clan. This also fits into the theory that Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) blue lightsaber was lost during the fight in the Force vision sequence. Perhaps the rogue Knight of Ren stole the Jedi weapon before going out on his own to form a new faction. This may have prompted a response by Kylo Ren.

The new revelation suggests that the Force vision sequence will prove to be important in more ways than one in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” The scene has so far been connected to Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) childhood, but it may reveal more details about the Knights of Ren too.
