Their love is quickly tested, however, by Anakin's violent reaction at the news of his mother's torture and death. When Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padme are all captured by Dooku and his forces and sentenced to death, the Jedi Council leads the newly discovered clone army into battle to save them. Amidst the arrival of war, Anakin and Padme marry on Naboo, setting in motion a chain of events that will rip the galaxy asunder.
