It was a complete fluke. My daughter, Quinn, was watching a classic TV show with me that I'd introduced to her months ago. Watching it, suddenly it clicked. I knew who Supreme Leader Snoke from Star Wars: The Force Awakens really is!
No, not Darth Vader or Kylo Ren from the future. Not Darth Plageuis, either. Something even more unbelievable.
First - a short clip with audio of Snoke as a refresher... then the reveal, below.
Okay, so who is (or was) Snoke, where did he come from, what did he do before becoming the Supreme Leader?
