After seeing ROTS now, 3 times, and being a believer that Palpatine was telling the truth about Plagueis and his manipulation of the Force, is it possible, as with many things in the saga, this was a premonition of something to come as well? For example, Palpatine in ROTJ tells Luke to strike him down, knowing full well Vader will protect him, and hopefully lose, so as to turn Luke to the dark side. However, in the end PAlpatine was ultimately defeated, and lost his power, because of his overconfidence. Just as Plagueis, a man afraid of losing a power to save everyone, lost his power because he couldn't save his self. Also, Plagueis was killed by his own apprentice because of his power. Vader killed him, but for different reasons. As with other future reoccurences, such as Anakin's arm loss to Dooku/ Luke's arm to Vader, was this another premonition of the future to come?
