Well we can all now stop theorizing as the character eventually turned into a pointless nobody it seems. Man The Last Jedi was a terrible movie.
The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be… Unnatural.

Snoke is a relative of Salacious Crumb. Confirmed

People... just because he was killed in the movie doesn't mean we won't get an origin story about him... or heck, who says he's dead-dead? Palpatine returned a gazillion times from death in EU continuity, maybe Snoke can pull something off to save himself from death. Or it was all intended just like Valkorion planned his death above Zakuul in Chapter 1.

I am absolutely convinced we'll be getting a novel sometime in 2018 titled "Snoke", just like we had with Tarkin and Thrawn. And take an example from the Tarkin novel, just because the character is dead doesn't mean we won't get new content about them.
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

That or, you know... He'd planned on dying all along and he was just playing his part to usher in the rise of Kylo Ren.
Because even though he seems certain of his path, the movie made it clear that Ben is still as unstable as before. And who started him on this path? Yup, Snoke. So even if Kylo remains Kylo and doesn't go back to being Ben (And whether he dies or not), Snoke will cast a posthumous shadow over Episode IX.
Remember how pointless Qui-Gon Jin was when he did in Episode I and never mattered again? Yeah, me neither.

Here are TWO interestingly similar yet conflicting THEORIES about Snoke

One or neither might appeal more to you but either way these are interesting. Gives me "false" hope that there is more to Snoke than his unappealing death.

Dont have any issue with Snoke dying in Ep 8, it was a good move and certinately an unexpected and exciting one.

But the lack of any background or exposition is just silly. We're talking an extremly powerful evil Force user who (presumably) have coesixted with Sidious and the Empire for decades yet did absolutely nothing because reasons. The handling of this makes Sonke look only more like a thoughtless rehash of things/characters already done in OT.

Even Vitiate/Valkorion appears more developed than Snoke, and I consider the TOR's Emperor to be an extremly thinly written villain...

Well no we didn't get more backstory from Valkorion. Not until DEEP into SWTOR that's after Kotor 1 and 2 and the Revan novel.

Remember in the OT we didn't even learn the Emperor's real name let alone anything else about him. The SW movies themselves haven't ever really been the place for exposistion dumps. That's what the books and games are for.
