Who's who?

1. When "Padm" was cleaning R2D2, do you think that was The Queen, or her assistant?

2. When "the Queen" told Anakin that she had sent "Padm" for something, when he came to say goodbye to her, was that actually the Queen or her double?

-----

I have another question too, just to clarify something: Why did the trade federation choose Naboo for it's attacks? What strategical influence did Naboo hold in the grand scheme of things? I think I must have missed something on both viewings that must have explained this...

1. That was the Queen. There's no actual handmaiden named Padm.

2. This was also the Queen. You'll notice that three handmaidens got out at Coruscant, and there were three in the room there, and none of them was Padm.

3. The general idea is that Sidious put the Trade Federation up to it.

Why Naboo? It was probably just as good as any other target.

The Trade Federation might have had dozens, perhaps hundreds of systems to choose from, any one of which might have made a good "example" to all the others.

Why Naboo? Maybe just plain simple random bad luck.(for the TF, as it turns out)

There's a book out there called Amidala's Journal or something. It tells the story from her point of view so that you know every scene when she's Padme or Amidala.

Okay... Then who's the person who looks exactly like her that we saw when they went to see Boss Nass and when they captured the Viceroy?

I may be reading more into this then there is, but:

Palpitine choose his own home world:
1. If they won, he was in control of the planet and could plead it's case to the Senate and profit from the occupation at the same time, perhaps getting someone else to call for a vote of no confidence, and be nominated for leader of the Senate.

2. If the plan failed, he was still in position to do the same thing. He got lucky in that the Queen escaped, and was there to call for the vote herself. Even though he lost the battle on the planet, and his aprentice, he still got the nomination. That was what he needed the most. Part of the grande plan to take over the galaxy.

Krenim: Since I read in the Amidala Journal that she chose a handmaiden named Sab to impersonate her, I would assume that it was Sab in both those scenes. All the handmaidens look like the queen for security purposes, and with all that makeup on you can't tell at all.

Sometimes I think Lucas left all that out of the movie intentionally to make you buy the books.

Okay...

So Padm = Amidala, then there's Sab, Eirta, and Rab?

Kosh, I like you explanation, it works for me.
