Continuity mistake: During the throne room fight against the red-armoured guards, one of them splits his weapon into 2 blades. In the shot where he gets Rey into an arm lock, the blade in the guard's left hand vanishes from the scene completely, in the middle of a shot. The hand that held the weapon is obscured by Rey's body at the point when the disappearance happens. It could be that the actor dropped it (a strange thing for an elite fighter to do), but then the blade is nowhere to be seen on the floor in the wider shot when Rey kills him.
Kylo Ren kills Supreme Leader Snoke and takes control of the First Order - he asks Rey to join him in destroying the past and moving forwards free from it, and she refuses. Vice Admiral Holdo destroys Ren's ship the Supremacy by jumping to light speed directly through it, sacrificing herself. The Rebels barely make it to the planet below, but, hopelessly outgunned, are forced to retreat, aided by Rey, and the few survivors escape on the Millennium Falcon. Luke buys them time by facing Kylo Ren one on one - we eventually learn he was projecting himself across the galaxy from his home planet. Exhausted, he collapses and fades from existence, becoming one with the force.
Yoda: We are what they grow beyond.
Trivia: Rian Johnson wrote TLJ without knowing how TFA was going to end or how the trilogy would be concluded in Episode 9.
