Star Wars: The Force Awakens Speculation/Theory #2

Based on Friday's article on io9 I have taken all I've read so far and come up with a plausible theory of how Episode VII may play out. Kira finds Lukes lightsaber and shows it to the local tavern/cantina owner, he doesn't know what it is but the crazy ol Cyborg von Sidow spots the light saber and suddenly becomes coherent and offers to help Kira. The cyborg happens to know someone whose  very interested in Jedi antiques. Han and Chewie just happen to be doing some honey do job (find Luke...he's our only hope) for senator Leia Solo-organa-skywalker in the very same place is asked to take them to planet (x) to meet with this antique collector (think Walter Donovan from IJatLC). Before they leave the cyborg contacts someone and says "It's been located". So Kira, Hann, Chewie, and the mysterious cyborg set out to meet this antiquity collector, once they meet he shows them his impressive collection, Han spot Vader's helmet in a glass case but acts like he's unaware of what it is. The collector  hires them to find some other Jedi/Sith artifact which eventually will lead them to the planet Luke has been hiding on for the last 20/30.

Like my original theory Luke becomes a hermit because of his fear of how powerful he's become as mentioned in the io9  article . Perhaps Luke has discovered the same power Darth Plagueis had mastered....eternal life by becoming one with the force without leaving his physical body.

I think it would be pretty awesome if Kira tracks down Luke similarly to how Indiana Jones tracked down the Holy Grail in IJatLC and must go through rooms full of traps 
 

at Lukes temple to save (Han?). Once she finds him at the rumored temple Luke is in a room in such a deep meditative state that he appears unconscious but levitating slightly off the ground with stones levitating around around the room. He is unaffected by Kira's presence but when the villain enters moments later his eyes open and stands up from his levitating sitting stance, the stones drop to the floor and there is a luminous glow around him. Kira is shoved to the side as the villain ignites a lightsaber and charges Luke. Luke's new lightsaber levitates from under his robes in front of him and parries the attacks in a similar way Vader parried Lukes attacks in TESB. The villain attempts to force push Luke as Luke floats closer towards the antagonist but Luke isn't budged as his robes show the force of the villains force push. Luke counters by force pulling the antagonist towards him.
Anyway that's my lastest theory. It is said Luke saves the day in a bad way....I don't think Luke will die in VII but I do have a feeling he will in IX and by someone close to him...a phantom menace so to speak.
Darth Kira has a nice ring to it, doesn't it...
"He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power...which, eventually of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew. Then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death...but not himself."
