As he's dying, Shens tells Tohm that Gentis is rebelling because the Emperor is wantonly sending his soldiers into danger, like he doesn't care if they live or die.
Tohm kills Shens with his blaster. He then follows Vader to the Imperial Palace where a bomb has just gone off.
Entering, they find the place gassed with Aorth-6, a virus infectant that liquefies the lungs when breathed in. The Emperor is injured but has used the Force to keep the virus away.
Grand Moff Trachta is there and he helps Vader and Tohm move the Emperor to a secret escape ship below the Palace.
