Episode 2060: Trooper Stupor


When you have nothing to lose... you have nothing to lose. Try a ridiculous bluff! It's all upside!

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Uh oh. I've got a real bad feeling about this. Yanni has been rather quickly working his way through the alphabet in Episode VII (all the way back from Alberto), and now he's decided to try a Z name just after having like 6 blasters pointed at him at close range. Maybe one of the other players will point out how much bad luck this is and Jim will figure out a way to get an A name again? On the other hand, I know that the comic is also written with people that have seen the movies before in mind, and that knowledge makes this page give me all sorts of "tying up the loose plot ends before he's gone/frozen again" vibes. I don't think there's enough technology nearby for carbonite freezers this time to lead to a next movie either.

That said, it seems a little odd for Han and Chewie to run up to Finn in the open without being shot or seeing any of these troopers that just surrounded them. This wasn't some elaborate trick by Finn and the First Order to capture Han, was it? Sure, he was a great Rebellion hero from the Empire days, but he certainly doesn't look that important now. Or act that important, what with the weird hangar ship he had. If Han Solo and Chewbacca do end up leaving the story because they're dead/frozen in carbonite, I hope this part of the scene is due to them giving Finn, Rey, or the Resistance as a whole a heroic save of some kind.

Finn: Where did that shot come from??
Yanni: At your service!
Chewbacca: May I have my crossbow back now?
Yanni: Sure, you can mind it for me.
Yanni: Who was that guy?
Finn: Zeppo - an old friend, gone bad.
Trooper: Don’t move!
GM: Troopers surround you, guns levelled.
Yanni: Hey, it’s me, Zeppo!
Chewbacca: Hello?
GM: ... I can’t tell if that’s a Bluff or a Situational Insanity check.
