Darth Vader's Medical Bills
When Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca meet Darth Vader at Cloud City in the movie Empire Strikes Back, why does Solo miss so badly when he tries to shoot Vader?
Han Solo shoots a few times, and Darth Vader blocks the shots with his palms, or robotic hands. Of course, Vader uses telekinesis to take the gun away from Solo right after. Why didn’t Solo go for the head or the chest? C’mon!
Also, why didn’t Darth Vader use his lightsaber to stop Han Solo’s laser shots instead of his robotic hand? I’m sure Vader needed to get his robotic hand fixed after that incident!
If you ask me, Vader was a little too confident with his robot hand. Darth Vader’s insurance payments must be pretty expensive too! It seems like the Empire has some good health plan for Vader, since he get freaking hurt all the time.
I mean, the guy is half a robot he’s so sloppy at defending himself. His medical bills must be going through the roof! No wonder Darth Sidious was eager to replace Vader with Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi. Luke was 90% in tact and was supposed to be more powerful.
