The Falcon heads for the main reactor, and when it is dangerously close, Lando fires the missiles, which shoot out of the Falcon with a powerful roar, and hit directly at the center of the main reactor.
- Starts with Luke solemnly accepting that his father may be dead after all for, like, a third time.
- Finishes with Luke escaping the Death Star in a shuttle (Vader's?).
- A lot happens in this minute.
- Mike joins the Trifecta club. It's the Return of the Norton.
- Mike isn't actually anti-Ewok. They're just creepy enough.
- Luke was right. Does he consider this a victory?
- What's the best case scenario?
- The fact that Luke and Leia are Vader's children could negatively impact their careers. A political-style attack ad featuring this fact.
- If Vader had lived.
- 27:24 podcast episode length.
- Cold open: Call in from former (and future) guest of the show Matt Gourley. Matt tells a story about a time his grandmother asked him what he wanted for Christmas. He asked for the Death Star Droid (not wanting to set his hopes too high), but his grandmother misheard him and ended up getting him the Death Star. Awesome.
- The fact that Luke and Mon Mothma have the same hairstyle was brought up before, coincidentally on a Matt Gourley episode. An attack ad against Leia was also mentioned on this episode.
- In Norse mythology, Odin is the father of the god Thor, much like how Anakin was the father (so to speak) of C-3PO, if you believe that kind of thing.
- Pete: A little side of Ackbar.
