If Vader intended to overthrow Palpatine and have Luke as his apprentice, then why did he defend Palpatine when Luke attempted to strike him down?—Unsigned comment by22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs).
Because I'd highly doubt Palpatine would put his own selfish life solely on Vader's hands (at least not without having something additional planned). And besides, if Luke stroke Palpatine out of anger, he'd go dark side and I think Darth Vader wanted to prevent this, at least on that moment. Winterz (talk) 17:46, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
