Podcast Stardust #150: Darth Vader 3 & 4 Review

by Podcast Stardust

Darth Vader’s mission of revenge continues in issues 3 and 4. Sabé takes him to Naboo and they meet more faces from Anakin and Padmé’s past.

In Greg Pak’s run on Darth Vader, the Dark Lord of the Sith’s plan to capture Luke Skywalker on Cloud City has failed. Now, Vader sets off on a revenge tour against those that wronged him and made his son weak. However, in issues 1 and 2, this mission took a detour when Vader encountered Sabé. Now, she is along for Vader’s quest looking for revenge for her fallen Queen. How will these two missions of revenge coincide? Join us for our discussion of issues 3 and 4 as we cover how their missions unfold.

On this episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss:

  • The motivation for Sabé to work with Darth Vader,
  • Vader’s return to Naboo,
  • The “Padmé and Anakin’s Greatest Hits” from Vader’s memories,
  • Why Vader chose to kill some of the Naboo and spare others, and
  • What Darth Vader might do next.
