Star Wars has been delving into its previous in current months with two comic-book sequence set after The Empire Strikes Back.
As nicely as revealing surprises about Luke Skywalker, the continued Darth Vader sequence from Greg Pak and Raffaele Ienco had seen Vader come into contact with Padmé’s handmaiden in his quest to search out out who hid Luke Skywalker from him.
The first arc of the sequence, Dark Heart of the Sith, wrapped in difficulty 5 with Vader seeing footage from Padmé’s dying. Palpatine knew that this had an impact on his apprentice, so the difficulty ended with him making an attempt to place Vader again on the Dark Side once more.
But few Star Wars followers would have anticipated that this may result in a serious Rise of Skywalker connection because it was revealed Palpatine’s reference to Ochi of Bestoon goes manner again.
Issue six of Star Wars: Darth Vader kicks off the Into the Fire arc that sees Vader put by way of the last word check by Palpatine.
The difficulty kicks off with Vader being attacked by Palpatine and his Red Guard, main finally to Palpatine Force choking his apprentice and mocking him over the Chosen One prophecy.
“You are but a tool, Lord Vader, which can be discarded when it no longer functions,” he tells Vader, earlier than he actually rips Vader to items to revert him again to how Palpatine discovered him on Mustafar after Revenge of the Sith.
It’s all to show Vader “fear again, to bring you back to power” and a part of that includes Vader being dropped off on Mustafar: “This time you must rebuild yourself. Using nothing but your own strength. Your strength, not mine.”
Basically, Vader can solely use his personal energy and never the Force to recuperate from his accidents as a result of in any other case Palpatine will know.
This begins with Vader dragging himself to the Techno Union facility on Mustafar to probably discover some spare components to rebuild his limbs. As he makes his manner there, we see Palpatine setting his apprentice an additional problem – not that Vader is aware of it but.
“I have turned his pain into fear and his fear into anger. But he has learned and forgotten these lessons before, so this time I will send a reminder through Ochi of Bestoon, assassin of the Sith,” Palpatine sneers as the difficulty ends.
“I will turn his anger back to fear and his fear back to pain as many times as it takes.”
In case you wanted reminding, Ochi was first seen (type of) in Rise of Skywalker as Rey discovered his stays and the Sith dagger on Pasaana, which finally led them to the wreckage of the second Death Star on Endor and the Wayfinder they had been after.
Ochi of Bestoon was despatched by Palpatine’s Sith Eternal to search out Palpatine’s granddaughter, however solely succeeded in killing Rey’s mother and father and finally met a sandy demise on Pasaana.
We know that each Ochi and Vader will survive regardless of the subsequent points throw at them, provided that the comedian takes place earlier than Return of the Jedi.
However, Greg Pak has teased that the arc will reveal extra about Vader that we would not anticipate: “There are some doors that have been thrown wide open, which dig into some great unexplored territory and also dig deeply into the heart of Vader.”
Could that contain extra Rise of Skywalker surprises? We’ll have to attend and see.
The complete Star Wars Skywalker Saga is obtainable to look at on Disney+. You may personal the Saga on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD.
