    As I said in reply to his post: Ian McDiarmid has confirmed that he's not in the movie, so it can be inferred that this won't happen.

    And Sheev does not kneel.

    Technically, he did kneel by Anakin's side on Mustafar...

    Well, to me this confirms that it is Vader in the tank, and a probably apprentice or such kneeling to him. I'm voting Jyn on this one.

    Rey's Mom / Mara Jade confirmed!

    But he wasn't kneeling to him.

    He did that to bring Anakin back from death, so, in a sense, he never lied to Anakin.

    But lying to Anakin was never the question here. It was a question about Palpatine bowing to anyone - which is something he does not do.

    I brought it up because that is the reason he bowed to begin with, to build his respect with anakin, i guess...maybe it's a sith thing where they bow to each other out of respect

    Kneeling down to someone that has just become a 3rd degree burned, quad amputee on the edge of death does not equal bowing to him. It's more like checking on him if he has a chance at surviving.

    And, if George Lucas's knack for visual poetry tells us anything, it's a homage to a similar scene in A New Hope.

    Apparently, this was treated as "Force Healing" in the Legends iteration of the universe, so it's possible that the same thing happened between Sheev and Annie. I'd have to wonder if that ability is canon.

    So, I couldn't resist and watched the Chinese trailer the official Star Wars Youtube channel just uploaded.

    I think they changed this shot by adding the red lighting in the foreground and a structure in the background.
    It doesn't really look like the bacta tank, but the red-white-black color scheme fits.

    It's a different location altogether. I believe that this scene happens later on in the film.

    Dare I say it.... JAR JAR CONFIRMED!

    Let's get crazy here. What if he's an imperial spy and informs Vader of the rebel's mission in the bacta tank scene? (emperor)

    Still would have preferred the (Robot Chicken) RC version were Vader throws him in the escape pod.
