Perhaps but I doubt he's as directly involved as you believe. It's likely he has his hand in the whole ordeal, but I think it's more likely he's just a puppet master.
Did we see someone in the vents? I'm sure Palapatine could be on another level the prison and still pull it off.
Vader was able to do this through the view screen in Empire so of coarse he could. However, it's a stretch to say he was on another level of the prison and was able to do it at the exact right moment. Not to mention the show reframes from directly making the Palpatine/Sidious
reveal for whatever reason. Anyway, it's most likely Barris
Now unless it's someone totally new, then it's most likely Ofee
or another female Jedi. Palpatine
could have been the one that pushed them over the edge but most likely he's not getting his hands dirty here.
