If Q'ira is working with Darth M, perhaps she is force-sensitive in some way?

As far as Han cheating on Leia:
1. He's an admitted "scoundrel"
2. he has a past that's darker than ended up in SW IV_New Hope (see below clip with deleted scenes--Han is clearly hanging out with some babes in Cantina scoring some action, as fits his character at that time. So, he can't 'relapse?"
3. Han definitely has a thing for Q'ira that is not so easy for him to just forget.
4. If not the above, then what, it's cool he leaves Leia and returns to villainy for the heck of it instead of being honored (and presumably paid) as "General Solo"? (Maybe he didn't like the benefits package?)




Yeah but thats his past, he and Leia don’t get separated until Ben goes off the deep end.

I'm not sure...we don't really know what happened or in what sequence they fell apart. It could have been one thing, or a combination. It could have set Ben/Kylo off. That's an angle that wasn't effectively explored in the way Ep.8:TLJ turned out, but they can repair it. Certainly explains Kylo's dislike of his dad and the resulting patricide. then it's a bit more understandable.

I mean, why would Han just up and leave the rebellion. We'll find out more-but as Lando's nowhere to be seen in Eps 7 and 8, what happened to them?

Had to post this one here...Rice U last year changed its logos jettisoning some of the old logos it had been using in various capacities for a while. I wondered what happened to some of our older logos, and I came up with this image for a school on "Naboo":

...an even older logo (it was a long time ago, after all) is this logo used by the Naboo Owls, who had a promising young player named Anakin, who could do some amazing things on the field with his force-ful abilities...but alas, he abandoned his studies of sand in order to go to a very private dark side school under the tutelage of an emperor:

I may be in the same boat. I didn’t hate TLJ, Im just in no hurry to see it again. I liked Solo more, its a fun movie. Deleted scenes look fun as well. You can tell they had a good time making the movie, wish people had gone to see it in theaters.

Pretty sure you'd like most of Solo. I agree Rogue One is a great movie, and a cut above the tow other Disney Star Wars movies.

Here's another interesting article that fills out a bit more of where some of the ideas in the Han Solo origin story came from: The 'Legendary' roots of Solo: A Star Wars Story. The only non main saga SW book I've read was one they mentioned set on Mimban, that swampy, muddy Dagobah-like planet: Splinter of the Mind's Eye, by Alan Dean Foster.

Topics the article covers:
1. CARIDA AND HAN'S IMPERIAL SERVICE
2. THE SPICE MINES OF KESSEL AND THE KESSEL RUN
3. MIMBAN
4. SABACC

Two side by side reviews of the home releases of the Last jedi and Solo for comparison:

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' 4K Blu-ray Review: Dab Han verdict: thumbs up

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' 4K Blu-ray Review - Luke Back In Anger verdict: thumbs down
