It’s a simple question but one that inspires thousands of thoughts – Why did Vader block Luke’s death blow to the Emperor in Return of the Jedi? Especially if he still wanted to rule the galaxy as father and son. Inspired by a 2013 blog post from JW Rinzler where he asked this question, we are analyzing every aspect of this small but oh so important moment in ROTJ. What was Vader thinking and what clues in earlier moments lead us there? Plus, what did George Lucas say the meaning of that moment was? Listen and find out!
