Question: Did Palpatine Truly Care About Darth Vader?

  I’ve seen a lot of information and theories flying around about Senator/Chancellor/Emperor Palpatine (Darth Sidious). There are theories that Darth Vader was a means to an end, that Darth Vader was disposable and the Emperor would do away with him as soon as someone else came along that might be better, or even worse, that Palpatine was some kind of celestial being (possibly … Read More Question: Did Palpatine Truly Care About Darth Vader?
