Darth Sidious’s Promise to Darth Vader

Anakin Skywalker turns to the dark side to save his mother. See, Darth Sidious, who happens to be a very powerful Sith, lies to Skywalker by telling him that the dark side has the ability to bring people back from the dead. This makes or convinces Anakin to turn to the dark side to bring back his mommy.

Yes, Anakin being a mama’s boy through the first three chapters, constantly crying about his mom, turns to the dark side. This is also symbolic of all those mama’s boys out there in the world that the outcome of their personalities could be tragic!

Anyway, by the sixth chapter, The Return of the Jedi, wouldn’t Darth Vader, aka Anakin Skywalker, would have questioned Darth Sidious’s abilities in bringing back the dead. Darth Sidious never makes that happen for Vader, right? I mean, that’s the reason why Anakin became Darth Vader—to learn how to bring people back from the dead, his mother in this case!

Anyway, just thought I’d bring that up! Have a nice day, and stop being a mama’s boy if you are one! 


  1. Actually, his promise is regarding Padme and "prevent the one he loves from dying." He tells the tale of Darth Plagueis as a cautionary and "enlightening" tale of someone who had such power and could do it, but what it got them. "It's ironic. He could save others, but not himself."

    1. It doesn't excuse or explain Anakin's turn in the prequels, they are all so terrible. I chalk it up to the writing and the "story."
