Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker is in turmoil; secretly married to Padmé Amidala but still heartbroken over the death of his mother, he tries to balance fruitful friendships and alliances with a growing need for intergalactic control. This plays directly into the hands of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, AKA Darth Sidious, who senses this vulnerability in the young warrior and ingeniously plays on it. Anakin ultimately makes the wrong decision, slaying Mace Windu and devolving into a new Sith Lord.
