It looks like General Leia (Carrie Fisher) knows more than what is being let on with regards to her son’s turn to the dark side—something expected to be delved into in Star Wars: Episode 8 – The Last Jedi.

One intriguing detail found in the Star Wars: Episode 7 – The Force Awakens novelization written by Alan Dean Foster is this game-changing secret that Leia kept from Han Solo (Harrison Ford). This is something Star Wars watcher and YouTuber Mike Zeroh brought to the attention of fans.

In the Star Wars book, Leia revealed to Han that Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) emergence was the doing of none other than Supreme Leader Snoke, saying that the First Order leader “knew our child would be strong with the Force—that he was born with equal potential for good or evil.”

“I hoped I could sway him, turn him away from the dark side without having to involve you… You have wonderful qualities Han, but patience and understanding were never among them. I was afraid your reactions will only drive him farther to the dark side. I thought I could shield him from Snoke’s influence, and you from what was happening. It’s clear now that I was wrong.”
