    It's kind of out there, I'm not sure they'd ever do it, but it would tie a lot of things up and explain what Palpatine (or rather, Plagueis inside him) would have gained by having Luke strike him down. Because Palpatine never seemed like the kind of guy who was so devoted to the Dark Side as a cause that he was willing to sacrifice his own life just to corrupt Luke.
    But that would mean he died with Vader.

    There's another part of the theory I neglected to mention. Snoke, tracking down ancient Sith artifacts, encountered Plagueis/Palpatine's ghost in the Death Star ruins. According to the theory, Snoke wasn't caught by surprise in TLJ, but intentionally provoked Kylo to kill him so as to possess another Skywalker.

    Okay but it still means he died with Vader because he had no body that turned to the Darkside to hop into.

    Otherwise, the plot of Kylo committing seppuku to finish off Palpatine once and for all makes no sense. He'll just wait around, haunting another area and never be gone.

    Well, it's unlikely to happen anyway. It's just a theory. But if they chose to go that route, Plagueis could inhabit the body of a survivor from the Death Star until need be. Or they could come up with an explanation as to why he can't tether his spirit anymore.

    So a small element of Colin Tremmorow's version of Episode 9 has made it's way to the theme park:

    So Lucasfilm/Disney has revealed a new variant Stormtrooper, the Sith Trooper (seen on those poster leaks a few months ago) Basically a First Order version painted red but with also some other touch ups to it's armor.

    With Palpatine possibly back, curious what role the Sith play in the film apart from that.

    The name is interesting enough. Originally the word was the Knights of Ren were a replacement for the Sith concept; dark side users but not of the literal Sith religion. With the name--and Palpatine--both coming back, it seems more and more likely that the Knights of Ren were just another smokescreen for the Sith to return. I mean, it would be a vintage Darth Sidious move. Maneuver from the shadows, using already established hierarchies against each other, then rise up.

    The new red First Order Stormtroopers are called ... Sith Troopers.
