PT fans are presumably also OT fans, so yeah, there shouldn't be any need for better Anakin closure than the end of ROTJ. And by virtue of being OT fans, they should also have no problem embracing the lore consistency of the Force itself facilitating a vision experience for those who have learned to connect with it. To the contrary, having the real Anakin willingly show himself in Vader gear *should* make them hesitant to embrace that, IMO.I must say I'm a bit surprised at the sentiment from some PT fans that my interpretation "ruins" those scenes. As if Anakin's story was incomplete unless he somehow returned...wasn't his appearance at the Endor celebration enough? I would think more would be happy at the notion that the Force (and by extension much of the mythology of SW) is ambiguous and cool again...
Even just metaphorically, there are superficial parallels that someone could point to. Luke having to literally descend into his cave test matches Ahsoka descending into hers. And smoke/fog/mist being an ambient part of the murky environment/aesthetic is present in both. Also, Luke having to see himself in Vader as part of his vision lines up with Ahsoka seeing through Sith eyes as part of hers; both instances showing how acting out of fear (and ultimately aggression) will control their destinies if they let it.
And if there are any reservations about why Luke failed his test but Ahsoka passed hers, look no further than Luke's test taking place where the dark side was the dominant Force energy. There's no such indication of that in Ahsoka's case.
