This holiday season, The wake of the Skywalker presented the final Chapter of the Star Wars nonology known as the "Skywalker Saga." In addition to the nine movies, entitled and presented as "Episodes," audiences saw three generations of Skywalker and Palpatine's lines fight with Mandla while the battles that take him out of the galaxy play in the background. In eight of those films, rival Sith followed a Rule of two where there are two Sith Lords at the same time. ("There are always two," Yoda said inside The Phantom Menace, "Master and student.") With The rise of the Skywalker, everything Star Wars fans think they know about Side Order change, making even the most male foes ever seem.
(Vol. Note: all of this post contains great episodes of The Rise of Skywalker)
At the beginning of the Episode IX, spectators testified at a Sith circle of Star destroyers around the Sith planet of Exogol, where an uneducated Palpatine holds court with the "Eternal Sith." Don't worry if it's the first time you hear the word "Eternal Sith:" The wake of the Skywalker does not use a word, however Rise of Skywalker – Visual Dictionary explains exactly who we see in Exogol. And special in the book – and not in the film – is more information that the end of the Sith is Return of the Jedi became a stadium full of singing, steals stealing from the inside The rise of the Skywalker.
In opposition to the long-standing Rule of Law, the canon has now grown to add the ancient Sith, a group of people who ruled the galaxy sometime before the Old Republic. Explained Virtual Dictionary as a "shoot" of the Jedi Order, the Sith went and hid all the events of both the original and the epic films. Although Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Darth Sidious, and Count Dooku were all legitimate Sith Lords under the Second Reich, they did not represent (as far as we know) the Eternal Sith, which was apparently hiding in the Unknown Regions, including Exogol.
The Star Wars: After a trilogy of Chuck Windig's novels introduces a character named Yupe Tashu who was an advisor to Emperor Palpatine during the first trilogy (though we never saw him on screen). Tashu was not an Army user, but a "Sith cultist" and a student of the dark side. Think of her as a fan of Lor von Tekow & # 39; s Lor San Tekka from The Army Awakens, a man who knows about the Force that helped Luke find the Jedi artifacts. Yupe Tashu is coming to lead the "Acolyte of the Beyond," which is regarded as a group in the country Virtual Dictionary that keeps the Eternal Sith's goodwill alive after the Emperor's death. Yupe Tashu apparently gave Ochi the Bedoon (the guy who killed Rey's parents with a MacGuffin dagger) access to ancient Sith texts that made him believe. Not really to Palpatine, but to the Eternal Sith as a belief system. In the movie he called it a "Jedi hunter" though Virtual Dictionary referred to Ochi as the "Sith assassin," which tracks much of the post-Return of the Jedi The galaxy where there were very few Jedi left to hunt.
When we first saw the Eternal Sith on the screen inside The wake of the Skywalker, are a few machine-generated figures around the tube of Snoke clones and hanging Palpatine. When we see them next, they fill the underground coliseum, sing and wait for Rey to stab Palpatine down. It is set in the opening film of the film that makes us think that Palpatine is pulling the strings, but based on other extended readings, the Eternal Sith are the ones who have been selling ships for generations. They have been reducing their time on Exogol all these years. Most importantly, when Palpatine threatens Rey, he says that he is "all Sith." This was after he claimed to be his family, after Rey decided not to beat him in anger.
All of this raises an important question: What if Palpatine wasn't that bad The wake of the Skywalker at all? What if the villain was just wearing Palpatine's mask? There is reason to think so when examining every aspect of J.J. Abrams and writer Chris Terrio are left open in their trilogy-capper.
Weary because of the anonymous question of how Emperor Palpatine kept his old body at Exogol, Lucasfilm team editor, Matt Martin, has continued to tear down fans' humble moments in Marvel & # 39; s Star Wars comics. Palpatine, it seems, probably can't just create life in midi chlorians, though that's what he it includes in Revenge of the Sith (which was a nice hint of "I'm your dad", but I think it was a subtle mistake, like when Kylo Ren told Rey that his parents were stupid). This features a fun alliance in The Tragedy of Darth Pandezis the Wise, which puts the Sith's "victory over death" concept as an alternative to Light Side & # 39; s Force Ghosting. Perhaps the best of any Force-wielder you can hope for is that it is always more alert than dead. The "supernatural" part of the Sith's power would show the body, and then throw Palpatine's soul into it. That includes the motives of the Eternal Sith: Why would Rise promise to submit to the Sith Lord who lived and died while they were still hiding from Exogol?
Early in the movie, Palpatine revealed to Kylo Ren that he had "heard every word (let) heard inside (him) in the head" as he circled Palpatine's voice from Sokoke's voice to Darth Vader's voice. This culminates in the idea that New Palpatine is a real "Sith Sith" and not the actual resurrected Pavpatine. The fact that we see in the mehendi's arm tells Kylo Ren to kill Rey, which makes sense if Palpatine needs Rey, but it makes sense if the All Sith needs someone who will take power to kill them in anger. transferring to the physical body. Rey would do it seek to kill evil, the grandfather of the Empire who was killed by his parents. If Rey was dealing with a completely new person who didn't play into her worst fears about her identity, it wouldn't be a moment of controversy. Given Rey's identity, it makes a lot of sense that it becomes a reality as Palpatine attempts to kill him in that moment.
Whatever New Palpatine is, he actually doesn't use his powers for his physical condition until he makes a living out of Force Dyad's juice Rey and Ben Solo. He goes Rey by killing him so that all Sith can stay in him. The Eternal Forces are lying behind him, and the whole thing sounds custom while showing what the Emperor wanted Luke to do in Star Wars II at Return of the Jedi. Whatever Sith magic played on the scene, and it was back Return of the Jedi, murder for hatred seems necessary for all Siths to take real roots. When the Palpatine Sith-Vampires returned to a brightly colored red cloak, whatever was there had turned into a physical creature, just as capable of being killed as ever.
Anyone who has watched Clone Wars
If the Eternal Sith is hiding behind Star Wars all this time, doesn't it make more sense that they find their way back to something like Son of Mortis rather than pointing their hopes on the name – only Sith Lord was defeated when his cyborg student threw him down a hole? The man, of course, planned the burglary and mass murder of the Jedi Order, but then came up with new ideas for "construction. another the largest moonlighting station ”?
The wake of the Skywalker it takes the Second Rule of that prequels were toessfully use it as a basic for the Sith tradition and it is out of it. We have instead a new backdrop of believers serving something that seems to be Emperor Palpatine, but they have no business actually Sheev Palpatine. The All Sith wants a physical, realistic body, as some Snoke have ever lived in their time, and they want the most powerful Force user you can find to stay in, in order to trigger the option of jumping a dead soul out of hatred or fear.
That means making the play fair of both Kylo Ren and Rey, making Palpatine's first order in Rise (killing Rey) make little sense. It is understandable why the face of the All Sith looks similar to Palpatine at this time. Or it is more reasonable that Sheev died in Star Wars II and Force God used him as Emperor suit to kick the galaxy and grandson to the old man who "suddenly built a Star Wars" and re-emerged 30 years later. The wake of the Skywalker it has no answer, but in every galaxy, this is very close to one idea.
