16What was the point of Snoke?
Let's start off with some brutal honesty here: what really was the point of Supreme Leader Snoke? As we all know, the supposed big bad of this new trilogy was quite easily done away with by his apprentice Kylo Ren in one of The Last Jedi's most satisfying twists.
However, leading u
to that moment, what was the point of the mangled, predatory, golden-robed villain, other than providing some requisite creep factor to the franchise in the way the Emperor once did?
We still don't really know much of anything about Snoke, for one, and given the fact that there's a new Supreme Leader in town, it seems unlikely that we'll be getting any more information on him.
So basically, we all wasted two years theorizing about who this monstrous man was. In the end, everyone's Snoke theory truly did suck.
