During the battle of Endor, Luke Skywalker realises his presence is a danger to the rebel's plans and so surrenders himself to the Empire and is taken to Darth Vader. Vader in turn brings Luke to the Death Star, which is orbiting the planet Endor, and before the Emperor who Vader hopes will turn Luke to the dark side of the Force.
The Emperor gives Luke the opportunity to strike him down, but when Luke takes the chance, Vader blocked the light sabre, and so begins a light sabre duel between father and son. During the fight Vader tells Luke that if he could not be turned then perhaps his sister could.
When Luke hears this, he becomes angry and charges at Vader with full force. The ferocity of the attack is something that even Vader is unprepared for, as blow after blow rains down onto his light sabre. Eventually he falls to his knees from the assault and in a final blow, Luke severs Vader's hand off.
With a break for breath, Luke is distracted by the Emperor walking towards him laughing with glee. He tells Luke to strike his father down and take his place, and they will rule the galaxy together. Luke looks at his father's severed arm and remembers his own severed hand, caused by his father. Realising what he has done, and that he is becoming just like his father, Luke throws away his light sabre and refuses to turn to the dark side. This makes the Emperor furious, and he uses the force to punish Luke with bolts of electricity coming from his hands.
Luke is writhing on the floor in agony, pleading to his father to help him. Vader, looking back at Luke and then at the Emperor, realises that he can't sit back and watch his son die, Vader lunges at the Emperor picking him up and, despite the electricity coursing through his body, he manages to walk him to the edge of the platform and throw him over the side into the core.
Vader is mortally wounded, and it is at this point that Luke gets up, without a scratch on him and helps his father get to one of the hangars so they can escape the disintegrating Death Star. As they get to the ship Vader asks Luke to remove his helmet, Luke is hesitant as it will kill him, but Vader persists, saying "Nothing can stop that now, for once let me look one you with my own eyes". Luke slowly takes off each part to the helmet, revealing a pale, scarred man that was Anakin Skywalker.
With his last words, Vader tells Luke that he was right about him all along, that he couldn't kill his own child, and with that Vader dies. Luke brings the body of Anakin with him as he flees the Death Star, and once he is safely on Endor, gives his father a traditional Jedi funeral.
