Don't bother about that. This is exactly the perfect forum for this kind
of questions. :-)

I did not follow the entire thread, but TKD clearly explains how it works:

Pronouns may be used as nouns, but only for emphasis or added clarity.
They are not required. Thus, the following sets of sentences are all
grammatically correct.

     {yaS vIlegh jIH} "I see the officers."
     {yaS vIlegh}

Taking this literally, adding the suffix {-'e'} even adds more emphasis.
It is used with the pronoun jIH, because it cannot be attached to a verb.
