THE MOMENTS: FORCES OF DESTINY (2017 - )
Episode 3x02: Unexpected Company
Anakin and Padmé are looking forward to some alone time on a private mission, with just the two of them. However, as they’re departing, Ahsoka runs up, telling them Obi-Wan has asked her to accompany them. Anakin is visibly put out, but Padmé puts aside her feelings and welcomes the Padawan.
Frustrated by the thwarted alone time, Anakin inadvertently plots their ship on a course right into the path of a Separatist fleet. During the skirmish, an explosion knocks Padmé from her place at the ship's guns. Anakin is instantly at her side, the couple clinging to each other in a protective embrace. Ahsoka - piloting the ship - sees the interaction, realizing what it means. To the couple's visible gratitude, Ahsoka pilots the ship away from the skirmish.
When they arrive at their destination, Anakin tells Ahsoka he's glad she came. As he walks away, Padmé comments that Anakin and Ahsoka make a good team. Ahsoka replies she could say the same about Padmé and Anakin. Padmé is surprised, but the looks shared between the two women make it clear Padmé understands what Ahsoka means - and that the apprentice won’t say a word about it to anyone. Padmé thanks Ahsoka, moved.
