Commentary on Chapter 9
Lots of little details here, revealing much about how the Sith operate in this universe, and what plans Palpatine has for Luke.
Leia’s rocky relationship comes to the fore here, with her familial obligations pitted against her emotions. The fact that she’s a Jedi in the very heart of the Empire, in the Emperor’s lair, is unsettling enough. It could become much worse were the Sith to discover her true nature and heritage.
