Come on.

Come on!

Don't let him get away!

Get inside now!

Hurry up! You're late!

Proxima's gonna have your hide.

Get back in the den.

Look what I stole!

Proxima'll give me
an extra portion for this!

Nope, I think she's gonna
give that extra portion to me.

Hey, give it back!

It belongs to whoever's holding it!

And that's not you!


Full Sabacc!

Idiot's Array.

What? Let me see that!

Nope, it's my card.

You cheat.


You were gone too long!

I knew something must've gone wrong.

This is nothing.
You should see them.

Look down here!

All right, listen.

I was in the middle of the exchange,

I'm handing over the coaxium

and his goons jumped me,
but I showed them.


I ran away, then I boosted their speeder.

What, are we going somewhere?

Yeah, anywhere we want.

You held on to one of the vials?

Han's back!

This, this is worth...

Five, six hundred credits.

That's more than you said we'd need.

To buy our way out of the control zone.

And off Corellia.

Han, this...

this could work.

This is gonna work.

Qi'ra, you always said one day
we're gonna get out of here.

This is it.

What are we waiting for?

There he is.

Hey, you two!

Moloch, hi. How are ya?

I was, just on my way
to see Lady Proxima...

What a night I had.

You're not gonna believe it.
You'll believe it, but...

Hold still, scrumrat!


Come on.

All right.

Let's go see Lady Proxima.


what happened?

I'll tell you what happened.

They double-crossed you
and tried to kill me.

The money?

They kept it.
And my coaxium?

They kept that, too.
But we learned a very valuable lesson.

We cannot trust those guys.

So you expect me to believe

that you walked away with nothing!

I ran away with my life.
I think that's something.

To me, that's a lot.

I trusted you with a simple task,

and all I'm hearing are excuses.

There must be consequences
for disobedience

or else you never learn.

You know what?

I don't think I'm ever gonna learn.

What did you say?

I said, next time somebody hits me,

I hit them back.

Moloch, wait!


Qi'ra, remember the Silo?

We pulled you out of that horror,
gave you a home.

Don't throw it away for Han.

He's not worth it!

Whatever he lost on the deal,
we'll earn it back, double.

We will make it up to you.

Everybody stand back!

What's that supposed to be?

This is a thermal detonator.

That I just armed.

That's a rock!

No, it's not.

Yes, it is!

And you just made
a clicking sound with your mouth.

Please tell me this isn't your plan.

No, this is.

Get in!
An M-68?

Nice, right?
I love it!

There's a starliner leaving
from Coronet Spaceport,

we're gonna be on it.

We bribe our way through
the checkpoint and we're free.

I'm gonna be a pilot.

We can get our own ship.

See the galaxy, all of it.

We won't have to take orders
or be kicked around by anyone.


Thought we'd get a little
more of a head start.

Hang on!

This is a secure area.

You must have proper clearance.

Stop at once!
You must follow the proper...


Damn! That stinger's fast.

Yeah, yeah but we're faster, right?

I hope so.

Pull over!

Han, no, we're not gonna make it!

Oh yeah?

Han, I'm telling you, it's too tight!

Watch this.

Come on!

We gotta move.

Do not join the line

if you don't have a boarding pass.

No access without ID chip.

All droids must be registered.

Move along. Move along.

Stand down. Do not resist!

Stop struggling.
Let me go!

Take his arm.

I got him.

Take him to cell 3B.

This way, come on.

Keep moving. Hold it, hold it.


Han, they're here.

Hey, what are you...

We're almost there.

Just hold on to me.

Don't look back.

Once we're through,
we've gotta be smart,

figure out where we're going.

Anywhere the Empire isn't.

Wherever we go, it can't be
worse than where we've been.

Yes, it can. Out there,
we've got no protection.

We could get snatched up
by traffickers,

sold to Crimson Dawn
or the Hutt Cartel.

That's not gonna happen.

I won't let it.

For luck?

Damn right.

You heard him. Let's go.


ID chips.

Funny thing, we don't have them.

We have this.

Refined hyperfuel.

It's worth at least,
800 credits maybe more.

You could be detained
just for having that.

What good would that do anybody?

Let us through, it's all yours.

The coaxium, now.

As we're going through, not before.

Do it.

Just do it, do it.

Not so fast, Qi'ra!
Come on!

Wait! Open the door!

Security, there has been a breach!

Open the door!


Get your hands off of her!


Get your hands off of her!


Run, Han! Go!

Keep moving.



Traveler has been apprehended.

Qi'ra, I'll come back!

I'll come back!

All units, there has been a breach.

Another unauthorized traveler
made it through the gate.

One got through the gate!
Look over there!

Someone got through the checkpoint.

Keep an eye on that gate.
Yes, sir.

Can't let you through without a ticket.

Can't let you through without a ticket.

Hey, wait!

Come with us.

He's still out there.
Keep looking.

You there, stop!

Show me some identification.
Please. Please.

No, no!

Do not resist.

Be a part of something.
Join the Empire.

Explore new worlds.

Learn valuable skills.

Bring order and unity to the galaxy!

Be a part of something.

Join the Empire.

This is where I sign up
to be a pilot, right?

If you apply for the Imperial Navy,

but most recruits go into the infantry.

I'm gonna be a pilot.

Best in the galaxy.

You there, come with us.

Who, me?

We have a few questions to ask you.

How long is that gonna take?

Depends on how good you are
at following orders.

Why, have you got somewhere to be?

Yeah, back here, as soon as I can.

Don't hear that much.

What's your name, son?


Han what?

Who are your people?

I don't have people.

I'm alone.




Proceed to transport ID 83 for
the Naval Academy at Carida.

Good luck, Han Solo.

We'll have you flying in no time.

Your Empire needs you.

Troopers forward!

Solo, get up!
We're almost there!

Almost where?

Where are we going?

Just over that last ridge.

Victory is...

My legs!

My leg!

Hey Beckett, you said we were here
to pull a quick job.

Well, this ain't a quick job!

It's a war!

It's always something with you.

That's what we came for.

Forward operations must be this way.

They are, but the major said
we're supposed to go that way!

Yeah, go that way and die!

That's exactly what happened
to the major!

Who's the ranking officer now?

You are, Captain.

He's got you there.

So what's the plan, Captain Beckett?

Val, you take Rio and these
four mud skulls flank left.

I'll take this mouthy scooch

and we'll go around to the right...

and maybe we'll get lucky.

Luck's got nothin' to do with it.

Wait! One, one question!
One question!

You wanna live, sparky?

Very much.

Then shut up and do what
your captain tells you.

Let's go!


T-15s are down.
We walk from here.


I'm Han.

Nobody cares.

Thanks for your help, back there.

You did all right.

I, I was trained in aerial combat...
You want some advice?

Get the hell away from here.

Any way you can, as fast as you can.

What company do you command?

None of your business company.

And we're full up.

Stick to soldiering, kid.

You don't want any part of this.

Hang on, guys!


In three hours, we move out
for the southern marshlands.

I want an advance party of ten men.

Great, more mud.

What was that?

Just wondering what our
objective is, Lieutenant.

Bring peace and prosperity
to the galaxy,

install a regim loyal to the Emperor,

and eradicate the hostiles.

It's their planet, we're the hostiles.

You got a problem, trooper?

No problem, sir.

Moving out.

To the southern marshlands!
Move out!

You heard them! Let's move out!

Looks like they're running sorties
every 30 minutes.

Yeah, I can take out the guards
at the perimeter,

signalman, pilot.

Hell, I'll just take them all out.

What are we looking at?

You have a talent for sticking your
nose in where it doesn't belong.

I just couldn't help but notice,

you're wearing a uniform
pock-full of laser burns.

So either you heal real quick,

or you stole it off a dead man.

You're not Imperial Army.

You're thieves here to steal
equipment for a job and I want in.

Well, now we gotta shoot him.

Snap his neck.
It's less mess.

Or you take me with you.

Look, I came up running scams
on the streets of Corellia.

I was boosting AV-21s when I was ten.

I'm a driver, a flyer,

and hey, you said yourself.
I gotta get outta here. Right?

What's a fancy flyboy
doing down in the mud?


I got kicked out
of the Imperial Academy

for having a mind of my own.

But I am a great pilot.

And I gotta get home.

This guy is nuts.

No one goes back to Corellia.

I got a reason.

We've already got a great pilot.

The Ardennian.

You got a lot of nerve, pal.

I'm an Imperial trooper.

Really? A couple of your arms
popped out of your butt

and hiked up your pants, trooper.


Look, I'll do whatever it
takes to get back to Corellia.

I've already been away too long.

Just, give me a shot.

Hold it.

Well, if you're not interested in me,

I think the lieutenant might
be very interested in you.




Lieutenant, we have
apprehended a deserter.

Take him.

That's. Wait.

I should've known.

This one's a troublemaker.

And a liar.
Don't believe anything he says.

Don't go anywhere without me.
All right, let's go.

Feed him to the beast.

The beast?
Wait, there's a beast?

Hold on!
Move it!

Listen, that guy's not
even an officer. All right?

He was lying!

Don't care.

Haven't fed him in three days.

Should be fun.

Hey! Hey, big fella.

Just calm down.

Take it easy.

We're on the same side.

You like treats?

Help! Let me out of here!

Let me out of here!


This was just getting good.

He killed him too fast.

Kill him slower.

Wait, wait, wait, wait!

Wait! Wait!

Yeah, I speak a little.

Now just listen to me, you...

Yes, yes!

No, no, no, no!

Do it!

Come on.


Ten credits, he doesn't
last another minute.

Let me out of here!

I can't take it anymore!

No! Stop, please!
That's it. Get him!

You tired, you mangy
Kashyyykian moof-milker?

See what happens when you listen to me?

Hey, what are you doing?

Follow me!

Wait, wait.

Come here.

Listen to me.

You don't understand, ok?

I have some very good friends
waiting for me at that airfield.

They're leaving right now.

That's our one way off this mud ball.

If you wanna live, we go that way.

After that, you go whichever
way you want, I don't care!

But right now, that's the way you go!

Trust me!

Val, let's go!

How do they breathe in these suits?
It's so stuffy!

No wonder they're such lousy pilots.

You can't turn your head,
you can't breathe,

you can't hear each other!

I'll be damned.

Hey, look who's back!




Is that a Wookiee?

I'll say it, I don't care.

This kid's growing on me.


You know, we could always use
some muscle on a job like this.

Don't even think about it!

I'm telling you, you will
never have a deeper sleep

than curled up in a Wookiee's lap.

I told you!

Very good friends!

We couldn't have done this
maybe, like, one at a time?

Thanks for helping me get outta there.

No, they only took you because of me.


I got us a real sweet deal here.

We do this one job with them,

we make some real money,

and then we're free.

When's the last time you could say that?

Been a while for me too.

So what's your name anyway?


All right, well, you're gonna
need a nickname,

because I ain't saying that every time.

Here it comes. Take a look.


We hit the Conveyex between
the tower and the bridge.

Rio drops us in, we separate
the payload container,

cable it up to the AT-hauler and then...

Rio jams their distress signal.

I blow the bridge,

the container slides right off the track

and we sail away.

You trip that security beam,

wake up those Vipers,
it's liable to get real spicy, real fast.

Well, I'm not the one
you should be worried about.

Enfys Nest.

What's an Enfys Nest?

I told you, we're way ahead
of the competition on this one.

There's no way Enfys Nest
even knows about this shipment.

Only my guy has the intel.

Well, you better be right.

Because sometimes you put your faith,

in the wrong people.

Our whole future
depends on this one score

and you bring in amateurs.

In case you hadn't noticed,
we're a little shorthanded.

So we get who we need.

The Xan sisters, or Bossk.

But no,

instead you're putting our lives
in the hands of morons.

You guys morons?


No. See?
We're not morons.

Look, I waited a long time
for a shot like this.

I'm not about to screw it up, all right?

Come on, Val!

He looks so sincere.

Plus, have you ever tried to disinvite
a Wookiee to anything?

Not a good idea!

This is not funny!

Look now, I have great
instincts about these guys.

And besides,

do you see any other options?

I just hope you know what you're doing.

Yeah I know exactly
what I'm doing and why.

We're gonna clear our debts,

go back to Glee Anselm,

and I'm finally gonna learn
how to play that valachord.

Babe, you're never gonna learn
how to play the valachord.

She's right.
You are tone-deaf.

So what's your sob story, flyboy?

Who, me?

You're after something, I know the look.

What is it? Revenge?

No, it's not revenge.

Look at him.

If it's anything, it's a girl.

Because a girl!

Tell us about the girl, Han.
Is she nice?

Does she have sharp teeth?

There was a girl.


I got out, she didn't.

I swore to myself I'd become a pilot,

get a ship,

go back and find her.

That's what I'm gonna do right
after this job.

How you know she'll still be there?

I just know.

Personally I refuse to be tied down
by anyone,

though many have tried.

Come on, Rio.

You don't fool me.

Everybody needs somebody.

Even a broken down
old crook like this one.

How about you?
What are you gonna do with your share?

What was he saying?

He said the Wookiees were enslaved
by the Empire, taken off Kashyyyk.

He's searching for his...

I don't know if he said tribe or family.

What's the difference?

Show me how to do that.

The only thing you need
to learn to do...

is do what I say, when I say it.

And this time tomorrow,

you'll have more than enough
to buy your own ship.

Starting the clock.

Jamming their signal.
9.6 to the bridge.

Let's find out how good
we really are, folks.

I'm fine!

Val, how's it going up there?

Never better.


Enough to power a fleet!

Or blow us all straight to hell!

All right, talk to me.

Is it a good day?

It's a great day!

Best day of your life, my grabby friend!

I don't know, you've never been
to a Mynock roast on Ardennia.

It's nuts!

Here they come!

Get down to the couplers!

Rio, fall back!

Well, that didn't take them long.


You all right?

Little close there, buddy!

Han, what's the holdup?

All right, together.


All right!

They got one uncoupled.
Where are you, buddy?

Just up here
planning my retirement.

Thinking about opening a cantina

somewhere warm
but not too warm, you know?

Lowering the winch cables now!

I knew it! I told him! Beckett!

He's coming!

Damn it! I'm never gonna
hear the end of this!

Who's that?

Enfys Nest!

Marauders, pirates.

Come to snake the score
from under us.

Ready your harpoons.

Move in.

Hang on!
I got an uninvited guest.

Get off of my ship!

You still with us, brother?

Yeah, I'm ok.

Just nicked one of my shoulders.
It's nothing.

He's not ok.


You gotta uncouple this one
on your own!


I'm on it!


Keep your eyes open.
We just tripped a sensor.

Viper droids headed your way!


Yeah, it looks worse than it is.

Just gotta patch it up.

Maybe rest my eyes for a minute.

Enough! I'm going in.

You weren't lying, kid.

You're a hell of a pilot.

Rio, stay with me, buddy.

Beckett, we just lost a cable!

2.1 to the bridge!

It's no good to die alone, kid.

Val was right.


Beckett, we're .8 from the bridge!

Val's still on the track!

Val, you gotta get off that bridge!

We're here!

They got me pinned!

I'm gonna have to finish
the job from right here.


It's been a ride, babe.

And I wouldn't trade it for anything.




Chewie, now!

Beckett, I can't pull it away from them.

They'll let go, you fly straight!

Release your cables,

or die!

We're too close.

I gotta release.

You do what I tell you, Han!

Chewie, grab the line!

Don't you do it!


You coward!

What the hell?

You don't listen
and you can't follow orders!

You have any idea what you've done?

We were not stealing for ourselves,

we were hired by Crimson Dawn.

Crimson Dawn?

Now we owe them 100 keys
of refined coaxium.

When they find out we don't got it,

they're gonna kill us.


We run.

I'm already a deserter.

What's the difference?

The difference,

is the Empire doesn't send out
a team of enforcers to hunt you down

when you're a deserter.

Dryden Vos will.

You have any idea what it's like
to live with a price on your head?

The only thing to do is to go to them.

Maybe I can find some way
to make it up to him.

Then that's what we do.


He knows me, not you.

If you come with me,

and show your face,

if they don't kill you,

you're in this life for good.

You find some way to...

square this,

we still get our money?


For me, it's worth the risk.

How about you?

That's yes.

Sorry, I punched your face.

Happens more often than you think.

So when we get up there,

Dryden Vos is waiting for us
at Fort Ypso?

Nearby, on his yacht.

You're gonna know how to find it?

That won't be a problem.

I'll need to check your weapons.

That's all I got left.

I'm here to see Dryden.
He's expecting me.

He'll be with you shortly.

He's just finishing
with the regional governor.

Excuse me, sir.


Beckett has arrived.

Put this in my office.
I might be needing it later.

I get all worked up. Silly.

It's a party.


These people are not your friends,

and they're never gonna be,
so don't talk to any of them.

Don't look at anybody,

just keep your eyes down.

I might get a drink.

No, yeah, whatever.

Chewie, would you please...

Qi'ra, what are you doing here?

I work, I work here.

What's your excuse?

My... I...

Qi'ra, I was...

I was coming back for you.

It's in the past, Han.

Not for me.
The only reason I'm here,

I was doing this job,
get a little money

and then I was gonna come back
to Corellia and find you.

Well, now you don't have to.

I'm right in front of you.

That day...

Sometimes, a lot of times, I think...

If you'd have stayed,

they would've killed you.

I'm glad you got out.

How did you get out?

I didn't.

You look good.

A little rough around the edges,

but good.

You too.

Thank you, Ottilie.

Have you been attentive to Dok-Ondar?


What should we drink to?

Let's drink two and see where it goes.

Did you ever get that ship
we were going to fly away on?

Yeah. Sort of.

About to. That's why I'm here.

I'm working on a...

Very big deal.

How big?


Really? And when are you going
to close this enormous deal?

Any minute.

I thought about you a lot.

Off somewhere, some adventure.

I imagined myself with you.
It always made me...


What did I say?

Look, I can't keep my eyes
down the whole time.

I'm gonna bump into something.

I don't want...
But I told you not to talk to anyone.

What do you...


You two work together?



Are you all right?

Are you hurt?

No, I'm fine.

I'm sorry to hear about Val.

Yeah, I appreciate that.

But there was no way
we could've anticipated...

I don't believe we've been introduced.

Yeah. This is Han Solo and Chewbacca.

They're with me.

I'm Dryden Vos.

I see you've already met
my top lieutenant.

Han and I grew up together on Corellia.

Fellow scrumrat.

I admire anyone who can crawl
their way out of the sewer.

Especially, a sewer as putrid as Corellia.

The stench, am I right?

Well, it's good to have you.


And you too Chewbacca, welcome.

All right, let's eat a little drink a lot,

and talk privately.

We're just friends, all right?

You're touchy.

Beckett, you have
put me in a terrible position.

I know Dryden and I am sorry.

You're sorry?

Dryden, there were complications.

There were factors.

Enfys Nest has been
a constant irritation forever.

It's one you should've anticipated,

it's one you should've dealt with.

Trust me I know
I made a mistake but,

when you hired me, you told me
no one else had this information...

Test me!

Test me one more time,
you'll see what happens.

I think what Dryden is trying to say

is that we're not interested
in why you don't have it.

No I'm not interested.

I'm not interested at all.


what can I do to make this right?

Make this right?

There is no making this right.

You know who I answer to

and you know what he'll expect of me.

He'll say, there have
to be consequences.

So here's what I need you,
to do for me.

I need you to give me a reason,

not to kill you all.

Because I will make it up to you.

No, no, no. How?

How will you make it up to me?

By delivering exactly
what was promised.

100 k-grams of refined coaxium?

Yes. We will simply steal it
from somewhere else.

From where?

You'll be hard pushed to find that

anywhere outside an Imperial vault.

Scarif. Maybe Mercy Island.

That's impossible.

So, let's come up
with some other options.

Other ideas that we might...

What about unrefined?

Well, the only known
source of astatic coaxium

is a fissure vent beneath
the spice mines on Kessel.

Yeah. That's the one I was thinking of.

That's a very, very good one.

But see, the Pykes control Kessel.

Crimson Dawn maintains
a fragile alliance with the Pykes.

It's one that I can't,

jeopardize without risking an
all-out war with the Syndicates,

and that gentlemen,

I will not do.

So if, that's all you have,
I think we're done here.

Not all we have.

We don't have any alliance
with the Pykes.

Right, so nobody is gonna know
we're working for you.


It's risky.

As soon as the raw coaxium
is removed from the vault,

it starts to destabilize so...



Work with me here.

Unless you could find somewhere,

to get it processed fast.


He's saying Savareen?


Yeah, it's an old refinery there
and it's not under Imperial jurisdiction.

But Qi'ra's right.

The canisters will explode
before you get there so...

you'd need an incredibly fast ship
and a brilliant pilot.

We'll find a ship.

We've already got the pilot.

He is arrogant and he's hungry.

So what do you think, my dear?

You think your friend here
can do what needs to be done?

Yes, I believe he can.

Well, that is good news,

because you're going with him,

to see that he does.

All right?

Of course.

All right.

I'll see you all on Savareen.

Savareen it is.

I feel great about this plan.
Me too.

We should do this again.
It's been fun.


And just one more thing.

If you do fail me again,

we'll all be out of options.


We won't.

So, I thought that went really well.

Let's get this done as quick
and as clean as possible.

What do you need?

I can scrounge up the gear.

Do you got a line on a ship?

I know a guy.

And I know just where to find him.

It's a long shot, but it's worth a try.

He's the best smuggler around.

He's slipped through the Empire's
fingers more times than anyone else.

He's attractive, too.

Sophisticated with impeccable
taste and...


Not to mention his prodigious.

We get it.

But he's retired.

Says he's a sportsman now.

All we need is his ship.

Well, he'll never part with it.

He loves that ship.

He won it...

playing Sabacc.

And there's the rub, right?

How was I supposed to know
she was an Imperial spy?

I thought she loved me.

That's the guy?

An interesting style.

I'll say.

You say he won his ship?

You have an awful Sabacc face.
I'm gonna call it.

I can take him. Let me at him.

Absolutely not.

Han, these guys are serious gamblers.

I'm serious. Stake me.

Don't listen to him.

Thank you. Thank you.

You see, how'd you guys
let me beat you on that one?

Come on.

There's no liars in this game,
just players.

Is this seat taken?

If nobody's in the seat,
then it ain't taken friend.

So this is...



Sabacc. Got it.

You play it before?

A couple times, yeah.

Captain Lando Calrissian.

Han Solo.

Looks like you're having a good day.

I'm a lucky guy.

Can I ask you a question,
Captain Calrissian?

Anything, Han.

That's Han but,

that's ok.

I heard a story about you.
I was wondering if it's true.

Everything you've heard about me is true.

Thanks love.

Did you win your ship playing cards?

I've won a lot of things.

I once won a subtropical moon
in the Oseon Belt.

Turned out to be a real money pit.

I'm impressed.

I don't think I'd have the nerve
to gamble

with something I love
as much as my ship.


What do you fly?


That is a quality ship.
Right, boys?

It's the fastest in the galaxy,

but there's a lot of
great ships out there.

I mean, I'm sure yours is very nice.

Gets me where I'm going.

Beginner's luck.

Well played.

Let's see what we got here.

Great hand!

Sorry, guys.

Close, but not quite.

Eyes on your own cards, buddy.

All of them.

There. Well, now I see yours.

That's me?

Ok, let's see...

Sorry, minus two.

This game is fun.

All right, how about this?

I'll see your bet, and I'll raise you.


I'll see your 2,000...

and I'll raise you...

however much this is.


Slow down.

You might wanna quit
while you're ahead.

You might wanna quit
while you're behind.

I like this kid.

You're adorable.

And I'm serious.

And I'm calling.

With what?

Your scarf?

Not my style.

My ship.

Against your ship.

Time to find out if you got the nerve.

What the hell?

Straight Staves.

You played me.

You're good.

Yeah. You're very good.

But not good enough.

Full Sabacc.

I told you to quit while you were ahead.

Drinks on me!

Yeah, that's right.

First of all, there's no way
he could've had that green sylop.

They'd all been played.

Also, your guy Captain Wonderful,

is so full of bantha crap...

Where's my VCX?

I don't have it right here now.

It's in the shop.

I'm getting some work done.


You look phenomenal.

As always.

Well, I knew I was gonna see you.

Get off!

What are you doing
with hairy and the boy?

There's no need, none.
They work for me.

Good help is hard to find, no?

We're more like partners.

We are.

Excuse us.

Listen, last I checked,

me and Crimson Dawn,
we're squared away.

Dryden said all is forgiven after I
did the whole Felucia thing for him.

Yeah. New move,
we're making the Kessel Run.

We need a ship.

Why didn't you just say so?

I thought you were retired.

Circumstances change.

How much?

The Kessel Run.

That's no easy spin.

I'm gonna need half the take.


Grown-ups are talking.


You're Tobias Beckett.

You killed Aurra Sing.

Pushed her.
Pretty sure the fall killed her.

You did the galaxy a favor day.
Me especially.

I owed her a lot of money.

And as token of my gratitude,

I'm willing to do this for 40%.


25% works.

No! Unacceptable!

Stop exploiting droids!

You sloppy degenerate bios!

She never learns.
Have you no shame?


My first mate.

You got no business
being here. Get out of here!

How can you condone this savagery?

You, you.
You should not be doing this.

They're using you for entertainment.

Yeah. You've been neurowashed.

Don't just blindly follow the program.

Exercise some free will!

Stay away from him!

He's never had it so good.

Really? How about you have
a go at me, ya lumpy brute.

Bring it on! Come on!


Droid rights! We are sentient!

I'm gonna flip your switch.

Good luck finding it.


Let go of the mean man's face.

We're leaving.

They don't even serve our kind here.


Who are these guys?

We're taking them to Kessel.

Are we?

And what if I don't elect to go to Kessel?

Please don't start.

Or what, you'll have me wiped?

You couldn't get from here
to Black Spire without me.

Now you're gonna make
the Kessel Run?

If she doesn't wanna fly,
I'll be your co-pilot.

I don't mind.
No, no, no. It's ok.

She's definitely going.

Why? Because you're
my organic overlord?

Because I'm your captain,
how about that?

I actually would have her memory wiped,

but she's got the best damn
navigational database in the galaxy.

Could use a fresh coat of paint, though!

Landonis, you do not want
to press that button with me.

You know, a lot of ships around
here get boosted.

So, I keep mine locked up.

You know, for safety.

L3, do you mind?

Look away.

I can't perform
with you looking at me.

Please indulge her.

I can feel you looking at me.

What are we doing here?

This guy's a hustler.

I don't even think he's got a ship.

If he does, it's gonna be a piece
of junk if it's even here.

There she is, my pride and joy.

The Millennium Falcon.

Looks like you had a little work done.

Indeed I have, Han.

Installed an escape pod
in the mandible notch,

alluvial dampers, a wet bar.

And a fortified infraction
restraint on the landing gear.

Looks to me like they
impounded your ship, Lando.

This is unbelievable!

I'm definitely gonna have some words
with someone about this.

You must have experience
with these, right?

Yeah, I could take it off.


Along with five percent off your cut.

You're down to 20.

I don't like it.

I don't agree with it.

But I accept it.

You're getting the hang of this, Lando.


Come on, Chewie.

Gonna need a little bit of
that Wookiee oomph.

Your plan is underway, Enfys.

We've attached the homing beacon.

They won't elude us now.


If they survive,
they'll bring the prize to us.

This is a Corellian YT-1300.

You know your stuff.

I've been on one before.

My dad worked the line
at the CEC plant before he got laid off.

He built these.

He wanted to be a pilot, but...

You, close with your old man?

Not really.

Yeah, me neither.

My mom on the other hand,

most amazing woman I've ever known.

Excuse me.

Get your presumptuous ass
out of my seat!

My sacral-occipital circuit is sticking.

You're gonna have
to do that thing again later.


All right, course to Kessel is set.

Plugging coordinates in now.

Just keep your pinky on the yoke,

and try not to mess anything up.

Whatever you say my lady.

Just let me know when
you're ready to jump.

Ready in...


It's just a simple jump to hyperspace,
and we're there.

What's so tricky about that?

Can't plot a direct course to Kessel.

You have to thread through
the Si'Klaata Cluster and then...

pass through The Maelstrom.

You done flirting?
I'm still ready.

You might wanna buckle up, baby.


Do you wanna make that move?

Do you wanna make that move?

You made that move, ok.

I guess I have to destroy that little guy.

Somehow I never get bored with winning.

No, you can't wipe them off.
They're holograms.

Hey, hey, hey! Chewie, relax!

Hey, try to compose yourself.

Look. All you gotta do is
think a few moves ahead,

anticipate your opponent.

There's a lesson to be learned here.

You guys seen Qi'ra?

People are predictable.

Yeah, I had to try one on.

That's a lot of capes.

Maybe too many capes.

So what's the plan?

Well, I thought we'd talk a little first
and then you know..

For Kessel.


Yeah, how good?


Well, it better be.


You go first.
No. What were you gonna say?

I wanna tell you, so much.

And I wanna know everything

that's happened to you since Corellia.

I. I'm not sure we have that kinda time.

We could.

We could have all the time
we want after the job.

You and I.


I want to.

You want to?

To tell you everything that's happened.

But I know if I do,
you won't look at me the same.

The way that you're looking at me
right now.

Nothing is gonna change the way
I'm looking at you right now.

You don't know that.
You don't know what I've done.

Am I interrupting something?



We got a lot of work to do.

You're making a big mistake.

Which is yours to make

except when you start
to interfere with my livelihood.

This isn't gonna interfere with your livelihood.
Then we have a problem.

You don't see it,
because you don't want to.

Maybe I know her
a little better than you do.

Maybe you don't know her well enough.

All right?


I like you kid.

We got a good thing going here.
Me, you, Chewie.


The makings of a solid crew.

But it does not work with Qi'ra.

It worked with Val.
You trusted her.

You wanna know how
I've survived as long as I have?

I trust no one.

Assume everyone will betray you

and you will never be disappointed.

Sounds like a lonely way to live.

It's the only way.

Dropping out of lightspeed now.

Ready to...

The Akkadese Maelstrom.

I'm gonna go check on the dampers.

You need anything?

Equal rights?

What's that sound?

Carbonbergs, size of planets,
crashing into each other.

Ships fly in there, they never come out.

It's ionized gas, water vapor,

possibly vacuum-breathing life forms

swirling around The Maw.

Only way in or out is this channel.

So what are you gonna do
about your little problem?



Well, that brand on your wrist
tells me that you're committed.

And that young male's heart fluctuations

tell me he's in love with you.

Han is not in love with me!

It's just us.

You don't have to pretend.

I'm in the same situation.

You are?

I'm sure you've noticed
that Lando has feelings for me.

Which makes working together difficult

because I do not feel
the same way about him.


Yes, yeah.

Yeah, I see that.

Sometimes I think...


But no.

We're just not compatible.

How would that work?

It works.

This is a precision job.

Thermal vault will be on the lowest level.

Down where it's warm.

The only way we're gonna pull this off,

is if everybody plays their part.

Stick to the plan.

Do not improvise.

Mining colonies are the worst.

Yeah well, the worst
is where the money is.

All right, people.
Time to shine.

It won't be for long.

Shut up, the both of you.

I am Oksana Floren,

Deputy Assistant Administrator to
the Vice-Admiral of the Federation

of Trade Route Allocation
and Monetization.

Here with an offer from his eminence,

the Senior Vice-Admiral.

Your spice for our hard-working slaves.
I brought you a sample.

Tuul bring forth the merchandise.

Director Tolsite said our slaves
should follow those guys,

to get clipped and tagged.

What are they clipping?

He wants us to follow him.


That's for that stunt you pulled earlier,
you degenerate scum.

He says all systems in this sector

of the facility operate out of this room.

It's how they're able to maintain control
over so many with so few.

The director says their reconditioning
process is excruciating,

but effective.

He said your security attache
can wait there.

Surely we don't need him
to negotiate..

Wait there Tuul.

Try not to bother anyone.


That was the uniform that
would've fit me perfectly but,

it's fine.

Would you mind holding this for me?

I have never see anyone do...

What was that?

Teras Kasi.

Dryden taught me.

Well negotiated.

Excuse me.
I need to use this terminal.


Can you hear me?

Restraining bolts...


You're liberated. Scoot.

I don't know.

Free your brothers and sisters
or something.

Just give me some space.

I'm in!

Han, can you hear me?

I kinda need to know which way
to go here.


The thermal vault is down two levels,

then left, then right, then it's the third left.

Right. That's a lot of directions,
but we're on it.

They're in subsector four,

coming up on gate X-3-7-1-K.



What the hell are you guys
doing up there?

I created a distraction!

Come on! This way!

Wait! What are you doing?

Come on, we gotta get the coaxium.

Hey! Remember what Beckett
said, stick to the plan.

Chewie! Come on, let's go!



Here, you might need this.

Hope I see you around sometime.

Han, where are you?

I'm on my way to the vault.

I lost Chewie.

He's dead?

No, he had something he had to do.

Is he coming back?

I don't know.

Ok, they're on to us now.

I'm at the vault.

That's what I said!

That was impressive.

We're clear.

Now what?

Ok Han, each canister should be
equipped with a thermal display.

Yeah, I see it.

If the internal temperature
reaches below 35 standard,

then the coaxium will
destabilize and explode.

Yup, I get it, guys.
It's dangerous.

Ok, got it.

Great. Only eleven more.


The Calrissian Chronicles,
chapter five.


Personally, I wasn't all that
impressed with the Sharu.

No sense of humor or style.

Nonetheless, there L3 and I were,

deep in their sacred temple.

And that's when we saw it...

Always something.

You guys are not gonna believe
what I'm seeing up here.

Is it a mass breakout?

L3, what did you do?

I found my true purpose Lando.

That's what I've done.

I'm so glad we took this job!

That droid!

L3 come on!

Follow me, compatriots!

Another couple guards just spotted me.

I don't have a free hand to take them out.

What do I do?

You said never improvise!


Don't forget that guy!

Good to see you, buddy!

Stay with me, Sagwa! Keep up!

Hey! I'm Chewie's friend, Han.




Follow me.


They're going for the landing gear!

We've gotta get out of here!

We need to keep them away
from those cannons!

Catch that!

Coaxium's stowed! Let's go!

Where's L3?

No more subjugation!


No, Lando! Get back here!


System failure.

Have to reroute the sensory modulators.

It's all right.
Save your energy.

I'm gonna get you outta here.
All right?

System failure, failure.


Damn it!



This way!

Come, come!

Chewie! Damn it!

It's not responding.

What are you standing around for?
Come on!

It's ok, you'll be fine.

Restart. It's not responding.

Not responding.

Han, get us out of here.

It's not responding.

Han! Now!

On it.

I'm here.

It's all right, L3.

I've got you.
This is not...

It's ok, L3.

It's all right. I can fix you.
I can fix you.


What's happening to me?



I'm sorry, girl.

I'm so sorry.

I could use a co-pilot.


With the cargo we're carrying,

if we don't make up some lost time

we're gonna be in real trouble.

How about that?
Is that real trouble?

That is an Imperial blockade.

What's it doing here?

Probably heard about
your little rebellion.

Nope. Not gonna make it.

We're gonna have to drop the shipment.

If we don't deliver, Dryden will kill us.

All right trust me, I know these guys.

I used to be one of them.

There's no way they're
gonna waste a TIE fighter

chasing down a little rinky-dink freighter.

You were saying?

Usually, in situations like this

I like to turn around
in the opposite direction.

I'm on the ventral gun.

It's an easy equation.

We simply don't have enough
time to get to Savareen

before the canisters explode!

Just have to find a faster route.

There isn't one! You can't make
the Kessel Run in less than 20 parsecs.

Watch me.

Take a shortcut, through there.

Into The Maelstrom?

Spectacular way of killing
us all, I'll give you that.

Can't do it without L3.
She's gone!

You said yourself,

she's got the best navigational
database in the galaxy.

If we remove her neural core,

it's possible we can download her brain

into the Falcon's navicomputer, right?

Could we?


Only one way to find out.

I got a really good feeling about this.

That's on me.


Beckett, you see them?
They still on us?

Beckett, did you hear me?

Are they on us?

Like rashnold on a kalak.

I don't know what that means.

Like a gingleson's pelt.

What? Are they or aren't they?

Yes, they're still on us!

This is why...

you never let anyone fly your ship.

Come on!

Yeah, one just got past me.
He's right on top of us!

Good going, Han!

We need to divert auxiliary power

to the rear deflector shield.

We definitely do!

Since when do you know how to fly?

190 years old?

You look great!

Chewie, get in.

I'll help Lando.

That's my cape!

That's a custom piece!

What? Beckett, you with us?

We just lost the cannon!

And I really hurt my thumbs.

There's still one on us.

Drop the landing gear.

When I tell you, flood the intake
and sweep to the bi-lats.

A little something I picked up
from my pal, Needles,

best street racer in all of Corellia.

Till he crashed...

and died, doing this.

Flood it, it's all yours!

Nice move!

Pull out her internal processor.


We've got L3.

Remove the mod calibrator.

Make sure the T-Line's connected.

I'm gonna tuck it in.
Don't worry.

You close?

That coaxium's getting real ripe.


She's interfacing.

She's part of the ship now.

Where the hell are we?

We're way off the edge of the map.


L3's constructing a model
of The Maelstrom.

She says we're approaching
The Maw.

That doesn't sound like something
we wanna be approaching.

Hang on!

This is The Maw?

No, that's not The Maw.
I don't know what this is.

That's a living thing.


That's The Maw.

It's a gravity well.

I got an idea.

Don't fly toward it, Han!

See if it goes for this.

No, what are you doing?
That's the escape pod!

I know.

Then why'd you do it?

That's why, baby.

She found a way out.

90 degrees, to the left... ish.


I can't.

It's taking everything we got
to stay out of The Maw.

It's pulling us in. We're stuck.

We have enough raw coaxium
to power a dozen destroyers.

Inject it into the fuel line,
it'll blow up the ship.

Not the fuel line.

But if we put one drop
into the fusion reactor,

it might just...

Give us the kick we need.

All right, I'm on it!

I know, we're getting
dragged in a circle.

Once we get lined up,
it's gonna be a straight shot.

As soon as that coaxium ignites,

we're gonna tear out of here

and the second we're
clear of The Maelstrom,

we jump to lightspeed.


Can't talk!

I see it.

Beckett, hurry up!

We only get one shot at this thing!

Shut up and let me do this!

Beckett, I'm gonna count you down!






Chewie, when I tell you kick out the
thrusters and jump to lightspeed.

Wait, what are we...

Remember that alley we slipped through
in the Santhe Shipyards?

Yeah, I remember!
I remember it didn't work.

This time it's gonna.

Punch it!

Savareen, this is Millennium Falcon.

We have coaxium that needs
to be off-loaded immediately.

Like immediately, immediately!

We're here now.

See you. I...

Just did the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.

Not if you round down, buddy.


She is a hell of a ship.

I hate you.

I know.

I'm gonna be on my ship,

in my quarters,

waiting for you to bring me my share.

And then I don't ever
wanna see you again.


Where's your boss?

Don't worry. He'll be here.

Then what?

Well, you delivered,

so you will get paid.

You can buy that ship.

You know that's not what I'm asking.

It can't happen.

Because you're with Dryden?

I'm not with him, but I owe him.

He helped me out of a bad situation.

And how long do you have
to pay off that debt?

Everyone serves somebody Han.

Even Dryden Vos.

Look, you don't want to make
an enemy of Crimson Dawn

which is exactly what you
and I would both be doing

if I left here with you.

I'm not afraid of Crimson Dawn.

I can take care of myself.

You know I'm not the kid you knew
on Corellia anymore Qi'ra.


Then who are you?

I'm an outlaw.

What? I'm not kidding.


Ok outlaw, you can tell yourself that,

but I might be the only person
in the whole galaxy

who knows what you really are.


What's that?

You are the good guy.

I am not the good guy.

I am definitely not a good guy.

I'm a terrible person.


They say when the coaxium's refined,
we collect it up there.

So, I hear you make good brandy.



You must've known
you'd see me again.

I was counting on it.

Just didn't plan on it being so soon.

Of course now you've got a problem.

Big problem.

You happen to notice
that freighter down there?

You know what's on it?

About 30 hired guns.

All I gotta do is give them
the signal you're surrounded.

Sorry. You do your thing.

By the time that coaxium gets refined,

Crimson Dawn will be here,

so you go ahead and kill us.

They're gonna kill you.

Perhaps there's a compromise,

one that doesn't involve
so much killing.

They're marauders.

They don't care about anybody.

All they know how to do is kill.

I need a drink.

Bring them inside.

My mother once told me,

about a band of mercenaries
that came to a peaceful planet.

They had a resource there
these men coveted,

so they took it.

They kept coming back, taking more.

Until finally the people resisted.

When they returned
demanding their tribute,

the people shouted back in one voice...

No more!

The mercenaries didn't like
the sound of that,

so they cut off the tongue
of every last man,

woman and child.

Do you know what
that pack of animals became?

Tell them.

Crimson Dawn and the rest
of the five Syndicates

have committed unspeakable
crimes across the galaxy.

Says you.


Says them.

Each of our worlds has been
brutalized by the Syndicates.

Crimson Dawn will use their profits
from the coaxium you stole

to tyrannize system after system,

in league with the Empire.

And what would you use it for?

The same thing my mother
would have used it for

if she had survived
and still wore the mask.

To fight back.

We're not marauders.

We're allies,

and the war has just begun.

You know we can't give
the coaxium to Dryden Vos.

Joining the cause, Han Solo?

Just trying to make it out alive.

Got a plan?

Yeah, beginning of one.

Way to get our money and get out
from under the thumb

of Crimson Dawn at the same time.

Maybe get your girlfriend back
while we're at it.

You don't tangle with Dryden.

Because unlike us,
he actually does travel,

with hired guns, his own private army.

So does Enfys.

Listen, here's what I got so far.

What do you think they're saying?

He's gonna try to help you.

I see.

Lot of ways it could go south,
and only one where it doesn't.

That's why I need my partner.

Not this time.

I'm leaving.

If you're smart, you'll come with me.

I thought you didn't believe in running.

I prefer it to dying.

If by some miracle
you make it out of here,

find me on Tatooine.

What's on Tatooine?

Heard about a job,

big shot gangster,
putting together a crew.

That'll be the one.

The one?

My last score.

Yeah, I still got some debts to pay

before I can head back
to Glee Anselm,

and get into the valachord.

Welcome home.

He's waiting for you.

Thanks, Toht.


I didn't bring them.

They're fine.

We're gonna win.

It's not that kind of game, Han.

The object isn't to win.

It's just to stay in it as long as you can.

You don't know everything.


Just a bit more than you.

I knew it!

My men they all said,

there's no way they pull this off.

Qi'ra's not ready that's what they said,

but I, I had faith anyway.

Where's Beckett?

Beckett didn't make it.

Tell me.

Job took a bad turn on Kessel.

He died saving my life.

How are you holding up?
You all right?

I'm ok.

All right, good.

Colo claw fish, anyone?

No. Thank you.

You know, whatever Beckett's
shortcomings may have been,

I always admired him.

He was a man of principles.

When he made a commitment,
he honored it.

And I think we can all take solace,

in knowing how proud
he would've been,

to see you here,
following his example.

Han and Chewbacca
behaved admirably.

They'll make reliable smugglers,

should we ever have the need,

when they get their own ship.


Come here.

We'd really appreciate the opportunity
to work for you again, sir.

I would've been inconsolable

if anything had happened to you,
my dear.

I have no one else in my life,

that I trust in the way that I trust you.

Well, I guess we'll just take
our payment and get going.

I'm sure you've got competitors

To crush and black markets
to dominate.

Show me what you've
brought me first.

You want me to open it?

Yes Han, I really do.

Bring me one.

I don't think that's
a good idea, Dryden.

It's. It's very explosive stuff.

I never ask for anything twice, Han.


It's magnificent.

How'd you do it?

Wasn't easy.

No I mean, how'd you do it?

It looks exactly like the real thing.

That's because it is the real thing.

Yes and I'm saying I would believe you.

It's that good?

But my associate already told me,

about your plan to rob me
of my money,

and give the real coaxium
to Enfys Nest.

Dryden, I don't know what you're thinking

or what Qi'ra may have told you...

No, not Qi'ra. Not Qi'ra.

Qi'ra, it turns out,

has a weak spot for you,

and we'll deal with that later.

No, I'm talking about my other associate.

Can you come in and join us, please?

I am sorry, kid.


Come on.

Don't look at me like that.

You weren't paying attention.

I told you, don't trust anybody.

Am I wrong about that?

Back away from that.

Put your paws where I can see them.

Check that lid.


It's too late.

Coaxium's refined and Enfys has it.

Well, we figured that.

Drop your weapons.

It's over. We got them.

And there we have it.

Excellent work, Aemon, thank you.

Qi'ra, help me.

Tell me what to do.

What would you do,

if the person you most
trusted in the world,

betrayed you?

I would want to know why.

If it was a moment of weakness

or something else.

And then what?

And then,

I would ask that person,

to prove their loyalty by,

sacrificing something they love.

I tried to warn you about her.

You know you're wrong about one thing.


I was paying attention.

You told Chewie people are predictable.

You're no exception.

It's empty.

The case is empty.

Aemon, what's going on?

What's happening there?

Talk to me.

I hope you didn't send
all your fancy enforcers

because that would leave you...

a little shorthanded around here.


if that case is empty,
then the real coaxium...

Leaves here with one of us.

Beckett what are you doing?


And I prefer to be the only one
holding a blaster while I'm doing it.

Han, grab that coaxium,

put it in the case.

Big stuff you're coming with me.

Don't do this, Beckett.

We had a deal.

I'm sorry,

but I'm also an entrepreneur.

I mean, you of all people understand that.

Come on, let's go.

You're making a huge mistake.

Won't be my first.

It's gonna be your last.


Why you gotta be so negative?


Now's as good a time as any
to reevaluate our relationship.

How so?

I was just thinking,

why don't we join forces
and go get Beckett together?

That is a great idea.
Let's do it. You go first.


You can't win Han,

and even if you could,
you'd spend the rest of your life

looking over your shoulder.

You know what?

I'm kind of getting used to the idea.

I'm sorry.

Han she's done things that

you could never understand,
but I do.

I understand her completely.

Once you're a part of Crimson Dawn,

you can't leave.

It's not true.

I know you.

It's what I was taught.

Find your opponent's weakness,

and use it,

and today...

I'm yours.

I had to.

Yeah. No, I mean you did...

You did.

Beckett and Chewbacca,
you have to go after them.

What are you gonna do?

Well, if we give all the coaxium to Enfys,

we're gonna need something
to buy our ship with.

Go and save Chewbacca.

He needs you and you're
gonna need him too.


That's the word.

Whenever I imagined myself
off with you on some adventure.

Always makes me smile.

Go. I'm right behind you.


I regret to inform you
that Dryden Vos is dead,

murdered by the thief he hired
to steal the coaxium shipment,

his friend,

Tobias Beckett.

Is that so?

Where is the shipment now?


Beckett took it.

Slaughtered the others.
I alone survived.

One man couldn't have
done this alone.

I wasn't there,

but if I had been, perhaps
I could have saved him.

Bring the ship and
come to me on Dathomir,

and you and I will then decide

what to do about the traitor Beckett,

and his accomplices.

I'm on my way.


you and I,

will be working much more closely,

from now on.

You're relentless.
I'll give you that.

Came as fast as I could buddy.

Dryden dead?

Qi'ra kill him?

Still don't get it, do you kid?

It was never about you.

She's a survivor.

You know what your problem is?

You think everybody's like you.

Not you kid.

You're nothing like me.

I hope you're still paying attention

because now I'm gonna tell
you the most important...

You made the smart move, kid.

For once.

I woulda killed you.

I really was gonna learn
to play that valachord.

I know.

That's it. It's all loaded.

Do you know what that really is?


About 60 million credits
worth of refined coaxium.


It's the blood that brings
life to something new.

Yeah, what?

A rebellion.

You could come with us, you know.

We need warriors and leaders like you.

Maybe someday you'll feel different.

Don't hold your breath, kid.

Don't lose that.

Very few people have actually seen

the StarCave Nebula.

It's breathtaking.

Not unlike your eyes.

How much do you know about
intertwined celestial bodies?

Because I happen to be
something of an authority.

By the way...


You're alive!

Yeah, no thanks to you.

I should have Chewie rip your arms off.

In fact, Chewie, do it.

Hey, Han! We are friends.

You know that.
We're friends. All right?

Look at you. Thought he was
gonna rip your arms off.

I knew you were kidding.

No, you didn't.

So, where's my cut?
Your cut?

No, I don't think so.
We barely made it out alive.

All we ended up with was that.

Figure it's worth about 10,000
maybe enough for a decent buy-in.

You want a rematch?

Why not?

You fold now,

you walk away with enough
to get yourself your own little ship.

You call,

I'm gonna clean you out again.

I don't know, I'm feeling lucky.

You really have it bad
for the Falcon, don't you?

It's mutual, trust me.
She belongs with me.

You got everything you need there, pal?

Not bad.

Not bad. You know,

if you'd only had this little green sylop,

you would've beaten this.

Fair and square, baby.
Fair and square.

Beckett said he heard about this

very big gangster putting together a job.

No, I'm telling ya,

it's gonna be great.

When have I ever steered you wrong?
