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.
Vader does a little TCB on Mustafar; Obi-Wan gets some bad news, then some worse news, then some much worse news; Padme learns The Truth.
