Subj: Vader and the Rule of Two
Posted: Wed Jan 13, 2016 at 04:56:58 am CST (Viewed 1076 times)

I understand the Rule of Two, there's always a master and an apprentice, established by Darth Bane to prevent constant betrayal. But if that's true, then there should be exactly 2 Sith at any given time. In Empire Strikes Back, Vader and the Emperor agree to recruit Luke as an ally. Clearly when Vader is trying to recruit Luke, he's fulfilling the spirit of the Rule of Two by offering a plan to overthrow the Emperor. However, in the initial conversation between Vader and the Emperor, it's seems possible that Luke could become an additional third Sith. Would it have been even feasible for all 3 to be allied? Wouldn't the Emperor have assumed that Vader/Luke would team up against him? If so, why would he even agree to that? And wouldn't Vader interpret this agreeance make him assume that the Emperor would likewise manipulate Luke to kill Darth? Why then would both Vader and the Emperor agree to such a proposal?
