Revealing mistake: While Poe leads the aerial assault on the oscillator, in the closeups of Poe and other X-wing fighter pilots, note the cockpit windows at the pilots' left and right have identical marks and scratches in their individual X-wings. It's particularly noticeable when one closeup follows another.
Kylo Ren is really Ben Solo, son of Han Solo and Princess (now General) Leia. Han is killed by Ren in Starkiller Base. Tapping into her dormant Force powers, Rey fights Ren in the snow outside, as the planet is ripped apart after the strike team scores a fatal blow. Separated by a chasm, she and Finn escape on the Millennium Falcon while Kylo Ren, injured, is retrieved and taken to Supreme Leader Snoke to complete his training.
Back with the Resistance, R2-D2 awakes from his low power mode and provides the missing piece of the map leading to the location of Luke Skywalker. Rey takes his lightsaber and flies out on the Falcon with Chewbacca, meeting Luke, who's standing along on a cliff, clearly having sensed her pending arrival...
Trivia: When Rey has her vision after touching Luke's lightsaber, she hears a voice at the end that says, "Rey, these are your first steps." The voice that says "Rey" was a partial sound bite taken from the late Sir Alec Guinness saying "afraid," and Ewan McGregor came in to record "these are your first steps." So you're hearing both the voice of old Ben Kenobi and young Obi Wan Kenobi speaking.
