- The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)
Does anyone here have an interest in making Snoke out to be an apprentice of some sort of Palpatine? Since the vat of his clones have been replaced, I think it could work, but it would also result in the removal of his line, “you have ever heard.”
I have been an advocate of this for awhile. I think it is cleaner and harkens back to the PT and OT of Palpatine always having an apprentice, but always looking for a stronger and often younger one. Also, I think you could imply Snoke maybe is withholding info from Palpatine and possibly thinks he could supplant him in his weaken state especially with the FO and Kylo Ren as his ally. The reconning between TLJ and TRoS has made for a murky grey area of how much Palpatine knew and controlled Snoke. Sheev seems genuinely surprised Kylo and Rey are a dyad in the force, yet Snoke says he bridged their minds and seems to have a better grasp of their force link then “The Senate”.
