In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker there were moments that surprised fans and even questioned the continuity of the films, mainly when it was revealed that Emperor Palpatine was alive and was the one behind everything that happened.

So looking to get revenge on the Emperor, Vader is tracking all of his secrets, and according to what is shown in the Darth Vader # 10 trailers, it seems that he is about to discover the Sith cult of Palpatine.
The description indicates that Darth Vader’s search for the Emperor’s secrets will lead him through a realm called the Red Nebula, and it should be remembered that the tape showed that the path from Mustafar to Exegol passed precisely through a Red Nebula, which indicates that it is the journey that Vader will follow.
After passing the Eye of the Shaggy Swamp test, DARTH VADER has learned the route to the hidden location of the Emperor’s greatest secrets! But in the Red Nebula along the way, can Vader survive the onslaught of the galaxy’s greatest predator? Especially if the monster’s most brutal attack transcends the physical? And what horrors await the Emperor if a transformed Vader arrives at his dark door?
We will see what happens in this story written by Greg Pak and with art by Raffaele Ienco, but if what is expected really does happen it could make the issue of continuity more complicated since the Star Wars novels had suggested that Palpatine discovered the existence of Exegol during the Dark Times.
