Did Sidious mean to strike Vader with force lightning at the end of rotj?

I'm watching rotj (on blu ray) now and i've always thought this since i was a kid. Was Sidious trying to kill Vader with Force lightning for insubordination or has the force lightning just gone wild roasting the emporor, as well, hence the Sidious's yelling. And if so is he yelling because of pain of Vaders' betrayal.

And why couldn't Sidious just stop force lighting, of force jump off vader. and roast him as well as luke.

Fairly certain it was on purpose as the lightning seemed to be curving into Vader. As for why he didn't jump out it was because Vader was holding him...

Isn't he stronger than vader is though? He could've easlily broken that bond or that hold. And Vader wasn't really holding him. He was carrying him over his head, wasn't he?

Stronger? Hell, no. Vader is one of the physically strongest characters in the films.

Well, yeah. But you can't jump out of someone holding you. I really don't see what Sidious could have done other than shock him. I guess he could have tried to use the force to push Vader around but he didn't think off it in time, especially since he was caught by surprise.

Naw, the force lightening just went wild and happened to strike Vader. Palpatine was getting roasted as well hence the reason why he was screaming.

I always figured that when vader grabbed him the foce lighting continued and with vaders hand off palps got electrocuted too from vaders electrical system and his own lightning.

Perhaps Vader was crushing Palpatines ribs as he carried him, hence the reason why Palpatine was still firing and continued to shoot force lightening even as he fell down the shaft?

Could be that Palps just electrocuted Vader for the "Noooooooooooo"..
After embarrassing the Sith like that...

I think he didn't stop the force lightning because it looks cooler to have him fall with all the lightning around him. wink

It was definitely a lot cooler than the original version where Sausages fell from the sky all around the universe the Palpatine died.

Umm, how about Vader just betrayed palpatine and palpatine wanted to at least take Vader down with him? Also, the lightning was more intense once Vader picked him up.

This. Palps says "..and now Young Skywalker, you will die.." and unleashes his most powerful blast. Vader grabs him right at that point, so the power is out of Palp's control.
