Luke ignites his lightsaber and screams in anger, rushing at his father with a frenzy we have not seen before.


Meredith Woerner



  • Starts with Vader suggesting that Luke's sister could maybe be turned to the Dark side, and ends with Sheev saying "your hate has made you powerful."
  • "Never!"
  • The action is moving from right to left. Mirror image of the fight from Empire.
    • Another gantry.
  • Vader says "Bah!" again.


  • As previewed yesterday, Luke flips out.
  • Luke is tapping into the Dark side and getting stronger, whereas Vader is conflicted; the Emperor was right.
  • Recreating the lightsaber duel from Cloud City.
    • Death Star interior design.
  • Does Vader trip on his cape here? What a way to lose a fight.
  • Comparing this fight choreography to that of the Prequels.
    • Using lightsabers one- vs. two-handed.
  • The fate of Vader's lightsaber/hand. Call out to Jordan White.
  • All the wires in Vader's mechanical arm.
  • The Emperor is very entertained by this fight. Parallels/echoes the fight from the beginning of ROTS.
    • Is he stepping in and stopping the fight intentionally?
  • General thoughts on the Emperor and space wizards.
    • Mentioned: Party Down.
  • Meredith ranks the movies.
    • The Holiday Special.
