"Balance to the Force".
...And yet, there is my son with Shmi in his eyes -- a product of love, before the storm. He is no Jedi, for his passion blows too hot, but perhaps he is not Sith, either. He is an instrument of change. He is the catalyst at the centre, the fulcrum on which pivot fates. To see him is to be blinded by the glory of the Force that orbits him like living netting.

"Balance to the Force".

Luke is last/first Jedi, trained by the last Jedi Master.

But... the way of the Sith is that they kill their Master, and then are killed by their Padewan in turn. Vader killed Sidious. But then Luke killed Vader. Thus Luke is also last/first Sith.

I really doubt George Lucas was this smart, but it still works...

... Luke didn't kill Vader. He BEAT Vader, but refused to kill him. It was the EMPEROR who killed Vader, with the Force Lightning, just as Dad was taking out the trash.

Re: Ummm...

The Emperor didn't kill him, he just wounded him unto death.

Luke killed him, when he pulled off his helm.

Of course, Ani was going to die soon anyway, from either the damage that Sidious did to his hardware, or when the Death Star blew, but when one is trading in fine print, it's Luke that killed him.

Re: Ummm...

If you're going for the fine print, Luke didn't kill him, Vader killed himself. "Help me take this mask off."

It was an assisted suicide, and as I consider terminal cases (which he was, in more ways than one) have that right, Luke didn't kill Vader.

Luke did not kill Vader, he defeated him in battle. The theory is ammusing though.

Plus, Luke was never trained by Vader. I assume other people can kill a Sith, not just his Padewan. :)

Luke and Ani had a long conversation and a deadly serious "training drill" on Bespin. I think that could count as an apprentanceship.
