He was too weak emotionally to do it himself, so once again, it was down to her. Despite being a prince, she was the real leader, the real warrior, not him. He was ashamed of himself; he would serve her in any way to make up for his cowardice.
Star Wars (all the movies, originals and prequels) I like them. Han Solo and Leia completely make up for Luke (my personal least favorite). For the new movies: I will watch anything with Ewan McGregor.
