Summary

Luke reacts. The Emperor notes it.

Guests

Joseph Scrimshaw

Notes

Film

  • Starts with the Emperor inspecting Luke's lightsaber, and ends with the Emperor saying "Your friends are walking into—"
  • Great Mark Hamill acting.

Podcast

  • Mentioned: You'll be dead!
  • Luke's destiny is to end the Empire by ending the Emperor. How this is separate from his mission to confront Vader.
  • Forced (no pun intended) transition from taking about lightsabers to why Vader can't be turned. Feels rehearsed.
  • Why is the Emperor (and Obi-Wan & Yoda) so confident that Vader cannot be turned? It's like being an addict.
  • Does Sheev still worry about personal hygiene?
  • The scene where Mace Windu melts his face, and the physical consequences of using the Dark side.
    • Why he needs a healthy young apprentice.
  • Darth Vader hedging his bets.
  • The Emperor doesn't have years to corrupt Luke; he gives him the crash course on turning to the Dark side.
  • Does the Emperor have a "Darth" name picked out?
  • The Emperor does nothing to "sweeten the pot" to get Luke to turn.
  • Sanctuary moon.
  • Joseph will be back tomorrow.
  • Check out ways to Support the Show.

Meta Minute

  • 20:59 podcast episode length.
  • Alex's inability to pronounce "Dr. Evazan" is a bit of a running joke.
  • An 8-DAY-GREEDO call in a future episode addresses the Dutch word for "son".
