The 10 Most Embarrassing Fictional Deaths of All Time
3. Padme Dies of Heartbreak
None of you need this recapped for you but here it is. Padme finds out that the man she loves and has literally zero chemistry with has gone to the dark side, gets force choked by him and is so injured in her soul that she dies.
Now here’s the exact quote from a medical droid explaining to Obi-Wan why Padme is dying:
“Medically she is completely healthy. For reasons we can’t explain we are losing her. We don’t know why, she has lost the will to live.”
I can’t stress enough that this is a medical droid talking. A robot doctor diagnosed his patient as having lost the will to live, like that was a real thing, and nobody questioned that? No one said “hey Robot Doctor, that’s not a diagnosis, maybe take another look, there’s probably a bleed you missed somewhere.”
[We’ve tried nothing to save you and none of it’s working, I’m sorry.]
I just hope no one tells her kids that her cause of death was literally losing the will to live as soon as they were born.
