Several Resistance Death Stars entering the First Order Super Death Star to blow it up.

They're hinting Palpatine because they blew their wad on their previous "arch villain" figure in Snoke already.

Which shouldn't be a problem, because the way TLJ set it up Kylo was now the final boss, so to speak. Palpatine, unless they come up with something awesome, will be a distraction.

Snoke was a dud of a character, an off-brand Palpatine wrapped in a mystery box. Having him be a red herring that's offed by Ben was, imo, the smartest thing they could have done with him as he was. Kylo Ren doing what grampa Vader couldn't and claiming the big chair by offing his master was a refreshing direction and I hope they don't backpedal on it.
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Agree.
I mean I liked Snoke, how he looked and his presence in the scenes he was in. But he just wasn't a true character. And that is honestly no different from the Emperor in the OT.
Why people were so angry that he was killed I just don't understand.
Gotta love how he looks ridiculous after his death, with his tounge out and all, and what's left of his body falling over.
Man you can feel Johnson did that stuff on purpose and was having fun. That's what I liked, the film had personality.
IX looks (judging by the trailer they showed us) like it'll be "everything the fan community ever wanted", which would be a failed idea because there doesn't exist such a thing as a Star Wars movie every fan wants. Sure, you can please a majority (or rather attract it with clever marketing). But I'm not interested in that. And other Star Wars fans won't like what I like, etc.
VII was very enjoyable for its characters and for Han being Han, but that is not enough for a final installment.

It's like TLJ knew where the sequel would go:

Now I'm wondering if snoke really was palegis and Palpatine will be using kylo as a vessel.

Probably no to the first one (the writers have been notoriously coy about Snoke's backstory, and it's unlikely that they want to identify him with a pre-existing character), but the second is a possibility. We know Palpatine died in Episode VI, but there's nothing stopping him from "possessing" another character and using him to carry out his will from beyond the grave. And Kylo Ren would be the obvious candidate for that.
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.
