Episode-X.com and insider Sith Interceptor report the following:

Anakin and Padmé are standing in the center of what resembles a courtroom – this is in fact the High Audience Chamber on Geonosis. Seated before them in a tall, boxed-off area is Poggle the Lesser, Archduke of the planet, accompanied by his underling, Sun Rit. Off to one side side the Separatist Senators Po Nudo, Tikkes and Toonbuck Toora. Right next to them are the Commerce Dignitaries, Shu Mai, Nute Gunray, Passel Argente, Wat Tambor and San Hill of the Intergalactic Bank Clan. Along the wall approximately a hundred Geonosians are waiting for a verdict.
Sun Rit speaks up, addressing Padmé and Anakin “You have been charged and found guilty of Espionage.”
Poggle asks them if they have anything to say before their sentence is carried out, to which Padmé shoots back that he is committing an act of war. “I hope you are prepared for the consequences.”

Poggle laughs. Count Dooku, who is also present, simply smiles.

Poggle tells Senator Amidala that they build weapons… it is their business! “Of course we’re prepared!”

Suddenly Nute Gunray, who seems annoyed, raises his voice. “Get on with it. Carry out the sentence. I want to see her suffer.”

Poggle tells the Senator that her other Jedi friend is waiting for them. “Take them to the arena!”

Four guards take hold of Padmé and Anakin. They are escorted out of the chamber to the sounds of chuckling.

Anakin and Padmé are tossed into an open cart in a gloomy tunnel leading to the execution arena. The murmur of a vast crowd is heard in the background. Guards extend their arms along the framework and tie them so that they stand facing each other. The driver gets up onto his seat

“Don’t be afraid”, Anakin says to Padmé, to which she replies that she is not afraid to die. “I’ve been dying a little bit each day since you came back into my life.”

Anakin asks her what she’s talking about. “I love you”, she reveals.

“You love me?! I thought we decided not to fall in love. That we’d be forced to live a lie. That it would destroy our lives…”

Padmé says she thinks their lives are about to be destroyed, anyway. “My love for you is a puzzle, Annie, for which I have no answers.” She says she can’t control it…and that now she doesn’t care. “I truly, deeply love you, and before we die I want you to know.”

Padmé leans toward Anakin. By straining hard, it is just possible for their lips to meet. They kiss.

Anakin says that he has no desire to be cured of this love either. “Long or short, I vow to spend the rest of my life with you.”

I like...your thoughts?http://www.sevaan.com/starwars2/episode2/news.php?id=47 (Episode X)

Talk about a layered scene. :D I'm digging it...what do you think? Star Wars highlight? Or cinematic traffic jam?

I think that could be 99 percent true :).Because I've seen a picture of Anakin and Padme in a cart.

I find it to me a very interesting scene for both Anakin and Padme,for she reveals that she does in fact love him.Now,I want
to know what they were doing to recive a sentence of espionage.

As for when Poggle tells the senator that her Jedi friend is waiting for her,could that be Obi-Wan?(Or is it Anakin,and I'm
just not reading it right).

Obi-Wan is captured before Padme and Anakin arrive, so yes, that is the friend that is referred to.

And espionage could be taken to mean that the three of them are accused of spying on the droid factories of Geonosis, with intentions of telling the Republic their findings. Sort of like somebody in one country giving out secrets to another country, especially ones hostile to one another.

I like the fact that Nute seems really ticked off about Padme being involved again. he seems really peevish about the way she trounced him in TPM. Vengeance being sweet and all :)

This would explain why we saw the guy in Toonbuck tooras costume on the geonosis set in the making of documentary segment 'A twinkle beyond Pluto' and Toonbuck toora in select image 21 (or thereabouts) looks like being a really nice scene with plenty of tension....... hopefully. :)

Toonbuck Toora on Geonosis in conference prior to the high audience chamber scene perhaps?

And another off set pic of some bloke in a fat alien senator's costume... :)

Excellent contribution! Thank you. It is interesting to see an interaction between Nute and Padme.......I hadn't thought about the two having words again in this film.
