So first of all, I 100% agree with everything said above.  Padme was totally underrated, as was her job within the narrative of the prequels.  That’s not what I want to talk about though.

…and trying to figure out if I’m just thinking too much into things when I wonder if that’s an intentional allusion.  Because if this is the moment when Padme breaks, if this is the moment when the Republic dies for her… is it not also the moment when the Rebellion is born?

…I’ve been thinking a lot about that recently.
