In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren has a tendency to literally choke people out, throw lightsaber tantrums, and take his employees for granted. A new SNL sketch reaffirmed the character’s paranoia in an Undercover Boss spoof. Spoiler alert — it did not go well.
SNL host Adam Driver reprised Kylo Ren, who went undercover on Starkiller Base as a radar technician named Matt. “You get so caught up in restoring the galaxy to its rightful state that you miss what’s going on behind the scenes,” he said. “I’m looking forward to having some real talk with some real folks.”
While most in The First Order seem to be on board with Kylo Ren’s agenda, they undoubtedly have a morale problem. Stormtrooper FN-2187 went AWOL and gave himself a non-government-issued name, Finn. Perhaps Kylo Ren could have stopped this if he recognized the signs.
Unfortunately, his time undercover was easily noticed. With all the Jedi in the universe supposedly gone, Force choking a co-worker is a big giveaway.
