*blinks stupidly at post in stunned disbelief* DRush76, I don't want to alarm you, but I *totally agree* with you here (I know! I know, right??) The "escape plan" has never made any sense to me. And even if what darth-sinister says is true, it seems like an awfully complicated way to execute Han's rescue. I don't know. This has always bothered me (well, not "always"--I don't think I noticed how nonsensical it was until high school), but I've kinda given up trying to figure it out.
