9. I hate them!
In Attack of the Clones, Anakin Skywalker is a teenage padawan, full of angst and a drive to become as powerful as everyone seems to believe he is. Haunted by visions of his mother’s suffering, Anakin returns to Tatooine with Padmé Amidala and discovers that his mother has been kidnapped by the Tusken Raiders. What’s spooky about this is that Anakin sees visions of suffering, and his visions aren’t inaccurate. He has a legitimate reason to be concerned. He’s terrified of what his mother might be suffering, so he goes off to find her. But when he does, he only has moments with her before she dies as the result of torture by the Tusken Raiders.
Unable to save her, and consumed by the weight of his years of absence from her life, Anakin doesn’t know what to do with the swirling mix of emotions stirring inside of him. Anakin, who will one day become the menace that is Darth Vader, is filled with a hateful rage and slaughters the entire camp of sand people with his lightsaber. Not just men, but women and children as well, he tells Padme. Anakin’s blind rage is spooky because it’s a foreshadow of the rage that will someday drive his every action as Darth Vader.
