Ooh, that's great to see! And what do we want to bet that some of those moments involve the birth of baby Ben?

@ISeeAnIsland

I know, right? I think the odds of baby Ben's birth being featured in this novel (in some way) are very, very good. Smile

baby gift quote:

Spoiler:

As they walk, Lobot looks over at him as a new communication flashes across his wrist: I am told to remind you that the princess will soon give birth and you have not yet procured for them the standard natal gift.

“What? That’s impossible. She was just—I swear they just got married—didn’t I just get them a nuptial gift?”

It has been the proper biological time. You just do not realize how much time has passed. We have been busy.

“So have they, I guess.”

Also, you never got them a nuptial gift.

He sighs. “Okay, okay. Buying gifts for a kid. Can we get him a cute little cape and a mustache so he looks like old Uncle Lando?”

Lobot doesn’t respond, offering only a humorless stare.

“Fine, fine, I’ll think about it.” His mind drifts briefly to Han and Leia. Han, one of his oldest and greatest friends. And sure, one of his greatest rivals, too. He misses that old reprobate. The crazy times they had!

Good times even when they were bad. And now, Han is with Leia. Hoo, boy. Those two are a pair of rocket boosters firing full-bore. Lando just hopes those two engines are both firing in the same direction—because if they’re ever pointed at each other, they’ll burn each other up.

Lobot! I always wondered what happend to him after Lando decided to get the Hell out of Dodge with Leia. Although from that quote, sounds like he should've paid for some couples' counseling for the expectant parents instead of a cape as baby present.

@snufkin

Is it any surprise, though? It sounds very in-character for Han and Leia...

Ha, no. I stand by my comparison that they have the same dynamic as Elaine and Puddy.

@panki, Han and Leia in a nutshell. You know she yelled things at him like "we're broken up for the rest of the day!"



Besides being sad we'll never get Carrie Fisher's box set DVD commentary for the Sequel Trilogy, I'm also sad we'll never get to see her and JLD team up, those two would've been hysterical together.

The bit about Han and Leia firing in opposite directions sure seems like foreshadowing, doesn't it? Oh but wait, they should have been perfect parents according to other factions of the fandom and Ben was just inherently born evil...

@IoJovi

Snoke: "There's moh"

JJ's commentary compares Rey and Kylo first meeting to two trains colliding. That, to me, sounds very much like:

Spoiler:
Those two[Han and Leia] are a pair of rocket boosters firing full-bore. Lando just hopes those two engines are both firing in the same direction—because if they’re ever pointed at each other, they’ll burn each other up.

Trains or rocket boosters, same thing.

@vaderito Very much so. And let's not forget, he is very much his father's son, as hard as he tries to deny it.

@IoJovi

So since the trains collided, they are now to learn how to drive them in the same direction. While rocket boosters were flying in the same direction until they flew towards each other. It's the opposite.

@IoJovi

Ben will be born on a dark and stormy night, complete with ominous thunder and lightning flashes. Lobot gives them the 'What to do if my baby is born evil' for Dummies guide book, considering the possibility. Lando suddenly remembers why he doesn't take him out much.

I'm calling it now: Ben and Rey were both born on Jakku.

If Ben was born on Jakku then his Father had a low opinion of the planet his one and only child was born on!!!

Didn't he call it a junkyard???

That's good catch. I think Han would react differently at the mention of Jakku then.
