Rule of Two retconned?

https://screenrant.com/star-wars-si...kywalker-novel/

Does this novelisation change what we already know about the canon rule of two?

I don't think so. The sith cultists on Exegol were not true sith lords. They were just dark side acolites like the inquisitors probably.

Not really.

That passage is from the Rammahgon, which is over 5,000 years old -- so it is referring to the Sith hierarchy of that era. Bane didn't create the Rule of Two until thousands of years after that text was written.

The Doctrine of the Dyad(referenced in the adult novel) retconned the RoT more than this.

Sidious is becoming more and more a Darth Krayt clone. Heh.

Even in the old eu, sidious had no intention of continuing it. (until he saw anakin)

You talk about his line in Revenge of the Sith when confronting Yoda inside the spacious chamber?

It's the same in canon. Palpatine's endgame was ultimately to become an immortal God and reshape the universe in his own image:
quote:
Palpatine would not allow himself to be sidetracked from his goal of unlocking the secrets many of the Sith Masters before him had sought: the means to harness the powers of the dark side to reshape reality itself; in effect, to fashion a universe of his own creation. Not mere immortality of the sort Plagueis had lusted after, but influence of the ultimate sort.

-Tarkin


He never really intended for Vader to replace him at all. Like everyone else, Vader was just a cog in Palpatine's machine -- one piece in his great design.

I think people have a hard time about that because of his dialogue with Yoda in Revenge of the Sith.

Did he not intend for Anakin to kill him so that his spirit could transfer to Anakinís body?

Palpatine initially wanted to try and form a Dyad with Anakin, but I'm not sure if he would have wanted to body-hop after Anakin sustained his injuries.

However, it was implied in the novelization that Palpatine was trying to goad Luke into killing him during RotJ, so he could transfer his essence into Luke.
