"Well, to me Vader wasn't redeemed either!"

It doesn't matter if Vader is redeemed "to you."

It. does. not. matter. 

If you don't find Vader's redemption convincing, fine. If you don't find it satisfying, fine. If you don't find it well-developed, fine. If it doesn't fit into your moral vision, fine.

Disliking an element is not the same as denying it exists. Vader was redeemed in ROTJ. It happened. That's what his death scene is about. That's what the smiling glowy blue ghost is about. Dislike Vader's redemption all you want, but you cannot reasonably deny that it occurred.

Moreover, translating "I don't personally find Vader's redemption convincing" into "Kylo is unlikely to be given a redemption arc, and if he does, it will be bad" is just baffling. "I don't like a thing that happened in canon, therefore it's improbable that the canon will do that thing" = ???????????

Whether Ben claws his way to redemption or becomes the cackling one-dimensional villain of Kylo antis' dreams, this is a shitty, shitty argument.
