Of all the characters we encountered in The Force Awakens, Supreme Leader Snoke is one of the most mysterious and captivating. And yet, his goals seem pretty clear so far. The thing he most definitely does NOT want to happen is for the new Jedi to rise, so I’d say that has to be his biggest challenge for The Last Jedi.
As far as the destruction of the New Republic and the Resistance go, those seem to be more means to an end. He wants to eliminate them in order to prevent the rise of the new Jedi. Of course, it sure seems likely that he also wants to rule the galaxy, and so knocking out those other organizations has to be part of the equation. But the Jedi … that’s what has his attention on a macro scale.
On a micro scale, getting control of Kylo Ren and driving him deeper into the dark side of the Force – without cracking him like the crystal in his lightsaber – seems to be his greatest challenge in that regard. Although, if he’s like other dark side masters before him, Snoke may have no problem demoting and humiliating Kylo, either.
