In Episode III, when he sees Mace Windu being electrocuted then thrown out of the window he seems shocked, but not surprised, and readily joins Palpatine, turning to the dark side.

When Palpatine tells him about Darth Plagueis, it's a pretty strong hint, so perhaps at this point he was already aware. But in Episode II, he seems to be oblivious of this fact. So when exactly does he learn about Palpatine's true identity?


Were you perhaps asleep during the scene in Episode III where Palpatine takes Anakin into his secret chamber of Sith and tells him everything?

    Gotta be quick around here. In fairness I would have been even quicker had I not spent nearly a minute trying to write a witty header. – Valorum Feb 19 '16 at 19:22

    "Were you perhaps asleep" is a good one, because I wouldn't blame him one bit. – Plutor Feb 19 '16 at 19:24
  • I probably was, or this scene wasn't in the original theatrical release, because I could swear it's the first time I see it. – mike glenndale Feb 19 '16 at 19:35

    That scene was definitely in the theatrical release, I remember the hallway scene with the weird bas-relief mural as one of my favorite scenes of the movie when I first saw it. – Hypnosifl Feb 19 '16 at 19:40
