** She was mortally injured, barely conscious and dying. It's rather unrealistic to expect her to think rationally.

** At the time Padme opposed the Military Creation Act, the Republic had no clear need for an army, and Padme's stance could've been seen as just one wanting to avoid warmongering. However, not only had the proposal for Palpatine to get emergency powers been made after war had begun, Padme had also been involved in the beginning of the war. So it's likely that Amedda was hoping that the events that Padme had been involved in had changed her mind.

* One thing that always bugged this troper. Why exactly Padme was so vehemently opposed to the creation of a Republic Army? True, she was no warmonger, but the events in TPM would likely had not happened if only there was such an army. Actually Padme should vote in favor of such army, probably with the amendment that it would be use for defensive purposes only, but still.

*** I know! You want a justification? Maybe Nute Gunray and his associates specified a cruel and unusual death in their contract on her head, involving poison or specifically the centipedes themselves. For revenge, right?

*** Because there's no reason for him ''to'' say it..? He says it isn't his job. Fair enough. The implication then is that it's someone else's job and one can assume they're doing that job while Obi-Wan and Anakin do theirs. Considering how much people criticise the entire franchise for constantly making CaptainObvious statements, it's quite ironic that one of the rare times the viewer is allowed to join up the dots is apparently not being clear...

** They've met before, in ThePhantomMenace. Presumably R2 recounted his adventures to him then. He also may have filled him in on what he's been up to during the trip to Geonosis.

** In World War 2, the tail gunner on most bomber planes (the main source of inspiration for the gunships) wasn't very effective at taking out enemy fighters - at best, they could hope to repel them most of the time. However, this raises an entirely different question: why weren't there any fighter escorts for the gunships?

** RuleOfCool, RuleOfDrama and HollywoodTactics. Bounty Hunters/assasins are expected to dispatch their targets in sneaky and exotic way, regardless of practicality. A simple blaster is too simple, and bombs only work if they're in your briefcase or car or something. Poison darts and animals are much cooler (the centipedes are a ShoutOut to Film/Dr. No), are less reliable so that plot-important characters can survive, and leave easily followable trails for heroes.

* Padme mourning Corde makes little sense. As [[WebVideo/HowItShouldHaveEnded]] pointed out, Corde taking the proverbial bullet for Padme is exactly why her job as a decoy existed.

* Mas Amedda expresses disappontment that Padme isn't there to propose giving Palpatine emergency powers. Why did he think that the person who was vehemently opposed to the creation of an army and was the leader of the oppostion against the Military Creation Act would support allowing the Chancellor to unilaterally create an army?

** Even if her job was to take the bullet, Padme would still be sad that she died. The bigger question is how could Corde say that she failed?
