This is simultaneously one of the sweetest and yet most heartbreaking moments in Anakin Skywalker’s supremely tragic story. Here is a young padawan who is reconsidering his place in the Jedi Order, longing deep down to leave it behind. And an Obi-Wan who reveals that he, too, would be willing to leave the Jedi Order in order to continue training Anakin, lest the Dark Side take him. Only for their journey to end up turning them from this potentially hopeful path and back toward serving Republic…leaving Anakin, through the most tragic of ironies, more vulnerable to the Dark Side than ever.
