In both the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film and novel we learned that both Palpatine and Snoke were clones. In fact, Palpatine informed Kylo Ren that he created Snoke to dry Ben Solo to the Dark Side. What if Palpatine didn’t create Snoke, after all? What if he simply appropriated a failed Darth Plagueis clone body?
