Star Words Part 16

This time it’s about an exchange between Anakin and Padmé:

Two people, scared and feeling out of control, seeking comfort in each other. I love how Padmé offers the physical warmth of a blanket as a sort of symbol of the emotional warmth she represents to him. And then there is the strange wistfulness hiding beneath the simple words “Space is cold.”

I love that Anakin, miserable as he is, still notices her pain and tries to help with a simple trinket. There’s a ton of foreshadowing here. “So you’d remember me.” Years later, Padmé will still have this pendant, and she’ll still remember him. She’ll carry that memory to her grave. Good fortune? That’s harder to say. Terrible pain and suffering will come, but ultimately it will be Anakin’s connection to Padmé, through their children, that will save him from his darkness.
