Star Wars 8; Did Rey's father betray Luke's location to Kylo Ren?
The Force Awakens opens with a dramatic scene showing Kylo Ren killing Lor San Tekka as he searches for the map to Luke Skywlaker.
Much of this history is explored in a campaign on Star Wars Battlefront 2.
The scenes involving Kylo Ren may also have revealed Rey's father and show the moment of his death. If this turns out to be true then it also means he was killed just before we were introduced to Rey on Jakku.
It seems Star Wars 8 really is building up to be the darkest yet.

The EA Game is fully canon and is being seen as a major lead into The Last Jedi. There will even be exclusive bonus materials released the day before Episode 8 hits cinemas which will almost certainly contain some huge last minute information.
The scenes with Kylo Ren show him going to the planet of Pillio where he forcibly batters information about Lor San Tekka from Del Meeko using his dark powers.
Kylo demands: "The map to Luke Skywalker. You know where I can find it. Show me where the old man took it."

However hard the former Imperial engineer tries to resist, eventually his will is broken and he gasps: "Bayora… he took it to Bayora."
This starts Kylo on the path to the planet of Bayora that will then lead him to Jakku, San Tekka and Poe Dameron.
It also starts events in motion that will draw Rey into the conflict when she finds BB8 and the missing part of the map. Suddenly everthing seems to be linking and looping closer together.
Star Wars theories Mike Zeroh suggests that Battlefront 2 characters Del Meeko and his lover Iden Versio could well be Rey's parents.
Their scenes are littered with references to fatherhood and a powerful daughter, as well as more than one key encounter with Luke Skywalker.
It would also explain how Kylo Ren already knows of Rey, since he also confronts Del Meeko about his daughter.
