ROTS, when Palpatine tells Anakin that he knows the Dark Side of the force, Anakin is pretty quick to jump to the conclusion that he is the Sith Lord that the Jedi have been looking for. Looking at the films alone, there is nothing wrong with him jumping to that conclusion. But now, in this Overlords episode, that conclusion is jumped to at the drop of a hat. When Luke is confronted by Obi-Wan's spirit in the OT he accepts it pretty readily. And when Qui-Gon confronts Obi-Wan in Overlords, after the initial shock and confusion, he seems to accept it. In contrast, when Anakin sees what as far as he knows is Shmi, he storms back to the Father, lightsaber ready and accuses him of being a Sith Lord. The witches of Dathomir are also capable of a supernatural powers, and there really was no evidence that Shmi's appearance had anything to do with the Force specifically, nor that the Father was behind it, and apparently he wasn't. Then when the Son merely drops a reference about the Chosen One prophecy, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka are pretty darn quick to assert that he is Sith. In ROTS, Palpatine claims he knows "the nature of the Dark Side" and explains that as part of an effort to understand the mystery of the Force, he had embraced a larger view, one that implied that the Dark Side was just a part of. Seemingly a balanced view given what is explained in Overlords. Mace knew the Dark Side surrounded Palpatine, yet the idea that he could be Sith never crossed his mind, and even when Palpatine starts talking about Sith legends, Anakin doesn't even draw any conclusion, even when all it took for the Son to draw Obi-Wan's suspicion was simply mentioning a Jedi prophecy. My point is that with Overlords preceding ROTS, it seems like it took less for the Son and Father to be accused of as being Sith, whereas Palpatine had readily shown knowledge of Sith legend and had the Dark Side "surrounding" him, and claimed to even have been taught the nature of the Dark Side, nobody does anything. I'm wondering if this kind of thing will just be overlooked and never really made sense of. However, I think that this arc would offer a good opportunity to address this. These "Force-wielders" are above and beyond the abilities of the Jedi and can seemingly read thoughts and perhaps even anticipate future events given Ahsoka and Anakin's "visions." One thing that would really be cool is if they somehow offered Anakin a vision of the future and of Darth Sidious who would appear as his post-transformed self (how he is depicted in the OT). This would explain why Palpatine can get away with so much. Because the Jedi know that Dooku is one Sith Lord, and the other is some old hooded, disfigured guy. That would also explain why everyone is pretty darn reluctant - including Mace- to accept that Palpatine could be the Sith lord, and in addition it would explain everyone's lack of surprise when Palpatine transforms/becomes disfigured in his fight with Mace, he is becoming the individual that the Jedi knew to be the Sith Lord. Of course all the episodes of Season 3 are already completed, so it's not like such a thing can be written into this arc if it is not already there. But really, I think it would have been a great opportunity, and if they had not exploited it, maybe there will be another opportunity in some future episode to incorporate a similar idea (e.g. Talzin's crystal ball). A simple vision taken out of context would still allow TCW, when shown chronologically with the films, to throw off new viewers into thinking that Palpatine is still a good guy, and would still save the reveal that Palpatine is Sidious - something that Filoni has said a lot of kids have not picked up on - until ROTS.
