Sheev gets the dominoes lined up; Obi-Wan gets a really important assignment (and lives through more trauma); Yoda is understandably not sure about any of this.
Mace, Yoda and Obi-Wan are really bumming me out; Anakin’s looking for a quick fix; Sidious is lining it all up.
Anakin is his usual calm self about everything; Mace has bad news for Obi-Wan.
Not for the first (or last!) time, Luke learns that someone isn’t quite who he thought they were.
Not content with the level of drama already present in the film version, Star Wars takes Episode 3 up a notch, and I cry.
Fresh off the assembly line, Vader gets sent on his very first Sith Assignment.
Anakin gets a promotion; Bail and Padme go for a misery-soaked joyride in Sheev’s car.
Anakin and Padme make a decision that sort of ends up indirectly dooming the universe; finally someone other than Obi-Wan cuts off a limb.
Anakin manages to be the center of attention despite being unconscious for the entire installment; the only person who blames Obi-Wan for anything more than Anakin is Obi-Wan himself.
Padme makes her exit with some insightful commentary; Luke and Leia make their sorrow-tinged debut; Obi-Wan and Anakin break up; Sidious hangs up the Mission Accomplished banner.
