    Why didn't Palpy fight back?

    I always wondered why Palpy didn't try to figt off Vader when he picked him up. Did the stream of force lightning make him inopperative at that time?

    Palpy's in his late 80's, and Vader is also alot stronger then Palpy, even though he had just lost a hand. Plus Palpy doesn't seem like he's much of a fighter, he always gets others to do his dirty work. Maul, Dooku, Anakin/Vader. But he did keep pouring on the force lightning, instead of shutting it off. So he was fighting back, from a certain point of view.

    I still thought Palpy was stronger, it just seemed funny that Palpy looked paralyzed in that stance when he was picked up and the force lightning just kept going. But he didn't seem to grab around to his head and grab or try to force lift himself out of that shaft. His energy was probably all going to the force lightning.

    Well he was also probably concentrating on the force for the lightning and was letting his anger for Luke cloud his senses and so when Vader grab him it overtook Palpy and he couldn't think due to all his concentration on the force lightning.

    Or maybe Vader was giving him a Force wedgie which caused Palpytine to freeze with pain. Every guy knows a kick to the Johnson will bring even the mightest to their knees.

    It's the element of surprise, even more powerful than the Force itself. Look at Qui-Gon's death, Maul's death, Zam's death, Jango's death, Greedo's death, Porkins' death, Biggs' death, the Tauntaun's death, Zev's death, K-3PO's death, Dak's death, Boba's death, Jabba's death... "SURPRISE!!! You're dead."

    I don't know if you meant the reference but it's a little Faith No More off of the Epic album. It would have made a great song to play while the Emperor was making his final descent into the void.

    He did fight back once he figured out what was going on with the lightning. I think that he wasn't expecting what Vader did and was shock that Vader would choose someone else over him.

    well, vader also then died after that... it's not like luke's chopping off his robotic hand did that... palpatine was fighting back, as we see when the electricity shows vader's skull through his armor...

    THe force lightning is what shorted out Vader's breathing circuitry.
