Ok, after discussion with my fellow 3SA mods, from now on, THIS will be the thread to discuss Anakin's transformation into Darth Vader. Including all opinions of when in the movie it happens, where, and why. This means, whenever new evidence arises that applies to the subject, please post in this thread, rather than starting a new one. Your speculation and opinions, whether or not supported by evidence are of course welcome as well. Enjoy! And let the debate begin!
