In Episode VI, I sensed in Emperor Palpatine an internal conflict. I felt there was still good in him, and with the help of maybe Luke, he could be turned from the dark side. Evidence. 1. He had a warm laugh. When he first arrived at the Death Star, his laughter resonated in the hangar. He also laughed when Luke tried to slice his face off with a lightsaber. 2. When he said to Luke, "There is no escape, my young apprentice; the alliance will die". He had such a sad look on his face when he said that. His good side was coming through in that scene. Thoughts?
