Week 3 of Star Wars news proved to be eventful and interesting. While there weren’t any Kevin Smith theories this week on Ahsoka, General Hux managed to make it into the spotlight. In what seems like a wild rumor, Hux is supposedly a mole in Episode IX.

Tagging along on the rumor train is the return of Snoke. Andy Serkis canceled a con appearance last minute due to a scheduling conflict. Theorist immediately jumped on the train, assuming it’s for Episode IX shoots. If Snoke is to return, it’ll likely be in flashback form. And yet, there’s always the possibility of a Force ghost too.
