Mods, please lock and redirect as needed. In TESB, Vader wanted to replace the Emperor as Sith Master and wanted Luke as his apprentice. Two questions. 1) Was Vader?s plan for Luke to kill the Emperor? If so, why did he block Luke's attempt in ROTJ? Had the offer simply been rescinded by that point? Had the plan changed? What was the original plan? In Vader?s mind, how exactly were they going to take the Emperor down? 2) With the emperor out of the way, what kind of Master would Vader have made? How would the galaxy have fared? Would Luke and Anakin/Vader have eventually had the same nasty relationship that the Emperor and Vader had, with each trying to off the other? OK, that?s more like nine questions. Thanks!!
