If everyone has his little theory, Luke Owen, the English website Flickering Myth, describes his intuitions. It will draw directly from The empire against attack . On Dagobah, Luke faces a vision he beheads Vader. The Sith mask explodes and Luke discovers his own face. For Owen, the Jedi is afraid to go the same way as his father. It then refers to the pleasure of JJ Abrams to muddy the waters, as he did in Star Trek Into Darkness by masking the identity of the villain.
To maintain this theory, Internet users have unearthed an episode of Dinner for Five in 2005. Mark Hamill are talking about the possibility of seeing Luke switch to the dark side.
