AOTC Star Words Part 17

Matril posted the latest installment of her look at key lines from AOTC, this time during a time when Anakin makes a crucial and fateful decision:

This simple utterance says so much. The previous night, she rejected the idea of falling in love. But it’s clear that there is already a connection here, however she tries to keep it at bay. She is in perfect sympathy with Anakin’s pain, gently urging him to talk about his nightmare, never doubting that his concerns are valid, and then immediately, without hesitation, offering to come along with him. It provides a convenient loophole to the mandate to protect her (though it’s highly doubtful that anyone on the Council would see it that way). It allows him to do what he needs without having to sacrifice everything else. And it’s just the sort of reckless thing that Captain Typho worried Padmé would do. She and Anakin are not so different, after all.

    They are different in some ways. And in some ways, they are not. It’s interesting that many fans never really paid attention to some of Captain Typho’s comments about Padme.
