Explained! What is a Grey Jedi?

  1. I would argue that Mace Windu led the Jedi over the line to their demise. Anakin Skywalker may never have fallen had Windu not attempted to assassinate Palpatine when he surrendered to him.

    1. Hmmm. Interesting. However, the scene where Anakin stands alone in the council chamber, hints that the decision to "go Dark" was taken at that moment. It was the visions of Padme's death that pushed him to pursue more powers desperately, and Palpatine's convenient solution that drove Anakin to the Dark Side. Windu had nothing to do with it. When Mace attacked the Chancellor, Anakin had already decided, that if the Dark Side can save Padme... it's worth it.

    2. Here is another perspective Mace should have included Anakin in the arrest of the Chancellor as it would have erased the pull that was over Anakin

    3. The mistake made by Mace was hesitation,he should have followed through, instead of trying to explain his actions to Anakin. Hesitation leads to doubt,which leads to mistrust,which leads to the dark side...I asked Yoda...lol

    5. Yes, Windu's hesitation killed him, but Anakin's fall to the Dark Side was prompted by two factors: Palpatine's influence, and the weakness of the Jedi Order. This is often shown, albeit poorly, in scenes between Yoda and Windu. I mean, you pick Samuel L. Jackson for righteous fury, not inner peace.
