We all know that Lucas is using a repeating themes idea for the prequels, and it led to the idea that Count Dooku could possibly be Anakin's Father, and that it would be revealed to him like it was to Luke in the Bespin scene. Something struck me as intresting in the trailer, that makes me consider a more shocking suprise may be instore. I do have some doubts about it, but I think it is worth talking about. I am quoting from memory, so I may have a few words wrong.
Ok, in Empire Strikes Back Darth Vader said to Luke: "Join me Luke, and with our combined strength we can put an end to this destructive conflict and rule the galaxy as father and son." Now in the new Trailer we have Dooku saying to Obi-Wan: "Join me Obi-Wan, and we can destroy the Sith."
Now we all know that Dooku was originally Qui-Gon's master. And it's been theroized that Qui-Gon wanted to have Anakin trained as a Jedi so bad, as a favor to his former master. But if Dooku really wanted Anakin trained, cause he was his father...why didn't Qui-Gon seek him out before, to have him trained. Or Dooku let word slip to informants of a possible midiclorian rich infant on Tatooine. Possibly because it's really not his son after all, that it could be the will of the force, or that his daddy was Palpatine.
Now, in the EU books...Obi-Wan originally washed out of the Jedi program, and only ended up being trained because Qui-Gon took him as a padawan. What if he actually did that as a favor to Dooku, because Dooku confided in Qui that Obi was his son, and that he was heartbroken to see that the council considered Obi-Wan not worthy of training. So, Qui-Gon took him as a Padawan as a favor for his old master.
So the possibility exists that Dooku is tempting Obi-Wan, someone who has already destroyed one sith lord, Darth Maul...into joining him and destroying them all. After Qui-Gon died in E1, Count Dooku left the order...cause he lost someone who was like a son to him, and wouldn't have been permitted to reveal that Obi-Wan is his real son, because the council forbids a child and their parents to have contact. And also Dooku cannot come forward that he is Obi-Wan's father, due to the fact instead of just leaving the Jedi Order of his own choosing, he would have been discredited and tossed out for breaking the "no love" rule.
So, what does everyone think. I don't 100% support this theroy, but I do consider it a possibilty of a suprise twist in E2.
