Podcast Stardust #222: Darth Vader #8-10

by Podcast Stardust

Darth Vader is confronted by the question of what he wants and needs and his exploration of the issues takes him to the domain of the Emperor’s secrets.

The Emperor destroyed Darth Vader and returned him to Mustafar to learn the meaning of fear all over again. However, once there, Vader began to repair himself and defended himself without the use of the Force. His success won him secrets from the Eye of Webbish Bog, and now Darth Vader wants to learn all that the Emperor is up to. Where will his quest take him next and how does he get there? We discuss this and more on this episode of Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Darth Vader’s confrontation with the Eye of Webbish Bog,
  • The issue of whether Darth Vader has choices or was chosen,
  • Vader’s fight with the Droid Crush Pirates of Bestoon and Ochi of Bestoon,
  • Darth Vader’s trip to Exegol, and
  • Darth Vader’s visions of what he needs and wants and what they may mean.
