Kanata's Castle continues their 'Pathway to The Last Jedi' series and this time they turn to the dark side. Who is Supreme Leader Snoke? How does he know the Skywalkers? Well, join Becca and Devon on this next episode and find out. So grab your favorite beverage and get ready to fulfill your destiny!

Snoke, the man behind the curtain. The Hologram. Who is he? He's a mystery, an enigma. And he prides himself on being Kylo Ren's sculptor. Snoke is indeed powerful. So powerful in the dark side of the Force that he managed to seduce the heir to the Jedi, Ben Solo, now known as Kylo Ren into leaving his Jedi path behind and becoming his apprentice.

But why Ben, Leia's son? What is it that Snoke knows? And, how well does he know the Skywalker legacy? The Force is strong in their family, each of them has equal potential for good or evil. But how did he know this? Who was he before he took on the alias of Snoke? Is it even an alias?

Leia knew that Snoke could have a strong influence on her son, and so, it was her responsibility to keep Ben away from the darkness. Unfortunately, the shadow doused the light and Ben became Kylo Ren.

Welcome back to our regularly scheduled program of Kanata's Castle! In this episode, Becca and Devon continue on their 'Pathway to The Last Jedi' by discussing the one, and the only character responsible for this podcast. Maz Kanata!

Maz Kanata is more than a thousand years old. As wise as she is old, but don't judge her by her size. Her experience and knowledge make up for her pint-size crude matter. Said experience is what has helped her survive the underworld and as long as she has.

Throughout the generations, she has seen galactic powers rise and fall and felt the Force come and go in her continuous search to find the balance between the dark and the light side of the Force.

From her castle on Takodana, she has given more than her fair share in ways of opportunities to weary and even, the illicit travelers. She has also helped an old friend or two find their way, guiding them down the right path.

Yes, Maz Kanata will help lead us down the pathway to 'The Last Jedi.'

Kanata's Castle continues their "Pathway to The Last Jedi" with Padmé Amidala: 'The Paths we Choose Pave our Destiny." In this episode, Becca, and Devon pick up where they left off, the Skywalker family. Only this time, it's all about origins. A bloodline of courage, selflessness, and hope. Padmé Amidala.

Sometimes, love isn't enough.

Anakin and Padmé were star-crossed lovers. Doomed from the start. And yet, their love created something that the galaxy needed. It's ironic. The galaxy that made their love impossible to be out in the open needed their love more than they knew.

Hope.

The Force chose Anakin, but it also chose Padmé.

The Force knows courage, selflessness and it knows hope.

And Padmé's most endearing act was giving her life for her children's safety.

Padmé Amidala Skywalker.

A symbol of Hope.

A Force of Destiny that will lead us on the 'Pathway to the Last Jedi.'
