Darth Vader's death
« on: November 25, 2005, 01:37 PM »
How did Darth Vader really die? Because he was once zapped. So why would he die the second time. And it was not taking off the mask because he told Luke it was to late for that. So how did Darth Vader really die?

Gosh you are right on the money with that one; and all these years I thought it was something he ate.  Silly me. 

I guess that eat and wait two hours to lightsaber duel rule is pure crap. :P

It couldn't have been the lightning when he was younger. That would mean he wouldn't have been the choosen one because he was weaker.

Huh? This conversation is really difficult to follow.

I don't think it's important how he died. It's just important that he died. I'm afraid if you put a "how" with it, you can get something as silly as Padme dieing of a broken heart.

Amen!

I don't think it's important how he died. It's just important that he died.

Yes!  And "why" he died -- to save Luke and redeem himself.

I'm afraid if you put a "how" with it, you can get something as silly as Padme dieing of a broken heart.

Amen! Amen!

And since Anton mentions this, I'm going to reinforce a point...

When you're posting things on our forums (and this isn't being directed specifically, just heed these words as I know you'll be able to guess if they apply to you), think about what you're saying and how you're saying it AT ALL TIMES.  Type clearly, make your points clearly, watch spelling and grammar as closely as you can please.  This community's dominated by adults, and as such there's standards to be met or posts look bad and can kill conversations.  We don't want that.

This is just a general post of advice/suggestions from your friendly neighborhood staff member.  Next time I'll send a PM as the not-so-friendly neighborhood staff member. :)

Julien -- I am very sorry for what your family went through during WWI.  I do believe that people can die of a broken heart or can lose the will to live.  The problem I have is that I feel that explanation was a cop out on GL's part as an explanation for Padme's death -- it didn't fit with her character or the events.  I believe someone as strong as her doesn't simply give up -- especially when she has just become a mother.  There were many other ways to explain her death that made better sense.

Hmmm... We're only talking about a movie here so...let's keep this simple :P

Vader's death was an enactement of sensible script

   just think- It was Luke's time now- the torch passing- Anakin time was over
                  - Had Vader/Annakin lived how would you fit that in a script that
                    folks would buy into? Yeah I could really see Annakin reminiscing
                    about all the years-bragging about sith functions like slaying jedi
                    destroying planets ect with Luke-like that would go over well ::)
                  - Martyrismesque reason - because he died by turning good at the
                    end it made a better story
                  - the movie is more powerful at the end when the bad guy you
                    love to hate is actually a good guy after all(now you're love for
                    him is justified!) (my fav. reason I used to love watching Vader
                    choke the little bitch who got in his way or dissapointed him-
                    greaat!)

great point tamidala.  i really feel that padme was kind of given the shaft in rots.  she was built up to be a strong female character through tpm & aotc balls to the walls kind of girl, but it seems that once she got pregnant she became this very weak character with no real personality at all.  she was not even the same person to me.  but this is supposed to be a discussion about vader's death and it would seem to be a number of things: lightning bolts pretty much straight to the head might make you go a little numb.  lightning shorting out the numerous things that keep anakin "normal."  i've started reading some of the new book i think it's called the rise of vader, and it goes into a pretty good description of what makes vader run.  also with the probable short in his breather anankin can breath for a short while on his own and that in itself probably wore him out physically.  although if you really think about it i think that the whole losing the will to live thing is better suited to anakin, finally realizing how wrong he was and how much it's cost him and how much guilt he must have carried in the few short moments he had left.  if i were him and came to that realization i pretty sure i wouldn't want to live another second either.
