* Palpatine's overall reaction to everything that is going on around him. For the 1st time in his Sith life something does not go his way, his wanted apprentice and heir to the Empire Luke has completely ignored his wishes of giving in to The Dark Side, the Death Star II's shields are down and will surely be destroyed any minute now, and his Galactic Empire which he spent nearly 20 years to create prior to Episode IV is left without a heir and will fall into ruin without him or a successor. He tries to get some cathartic rage on Luke for denying his wishes however something he never would have thought to happened to him happens, his own slave Darth Vader breaks free from the Dark Side and hoists Palpatine. All Palpatine can do at this point is yell in fury and anger he even ''demands'' Vader to let him go. For the 1st time in the Star Was timeline Palpatine has made an error an error which costs him his Empire, the Sith Order, and his life.

** Looking at the progression of events around that point, that scene ''is'' when the tables turned and the good guys started to win. After that declaration, the Shield Generator blew up, Executor was destroyed, and the Death Star Run into the reactor began. Everything began to fall apart for Palpatine.

** And then there's more evidence of that journey's impact when Jabba drops Luke into the Rancor pit. The slavering beast sets its sights on Luke, and within three minutes, Luke takes it down. With a [[ImprovisedWeapon bone.]] And a rock.

* Obi-Wan's seemingly nonsensical line in Episode IV to Han and in turn the crew "There are alternatives to fighting" finally come to pass 4 years later, Luke didn't beat Palpatine by a lightsaber he finds an alternative way to beat him by proudly proclaiming he is a Jedi like his father before him. Somewhere in the deep recesses of The Force Obi-Wan's ghost must have been smiling.

** Even more awesome after watching the prequel trilogy. Anakin had spent his entire life adhering to the whims of other people. He was a slave in his childhood. As a Jedi he could only do what his elders allowed him to do, which meant his potential to be the hero he was hoping to be was severely limited. The Emperor played him like a pack of cards to the point where he lost almost everything. Even his relationship with Padmé transpired on her terms, not his. By killing the Emperor to save his son, Anakin finally took control of his life.

** In a way, Luke also ends up turning the tables on Vader when he [[TranquilFury somewhat snaps]] to sternly tell him "''[[DoNotCallMePaul That name]]'' [[ThatManIsDead no longer has any meaning to me!]]" And then Luke tells him that if Darth Vader truly sees no alternative but the Dark Side, then his father must be truly dead. Imagine the Sith Lord's surprise when it's ''Luke'' who is now playing mind games with ''him''.

* Palpatine's terrified last words as Anakin carries him to his death "LET ME GO!". Watching the Prequels and The Clone Wars series Palpatine always had the look of "I'm untouchable" look to him, however not this time for the first time in his life Palpatine feels ultimate fear.

** Chewie's Walker shooting out the other walker becomes a rallying point for the Ewoks. Whereas they had had trouble dealing with the troops and the walkers, this time around their attacks (making a walker slip and fall over a bunch of logs, doing a "nutcracker" on another) are much more effective. We see a bunch of primitive, tribal creatures actually hold their own against the baddest army in the galaxy. They had ''every'' reason to celebrate that night at the victory party.

They start taking out the imperial speeder scouts zipping to and fro as well, with clotheslines, and catching their steering vanes in lassos tied to trees.

** Think about it for a second: The entire Battle of Endor, both on the ground and eventually in orbit, was turned around by a wookiee and a pair of ewoks hijacking an enemy vehicle.
