deleting the whole “jealous Han” subplot
Yes, please! Han & Leia fall in love in Empire. That should be that.
All you have to do is cut Han showing up after Luke leaves for the base and shorten the Han and Leia scene at the end.
Leia: “He wasn’t, I can feel it.”
Han gives a surprised look.
Leia: “He’s my brother.”
Han and Leia kiss, with Han trying not to think about the incestuous smooch from a movie ago.
I don’t mind the callback to “I love you.” “I know.” in the bunker scene. It always struck me as Han realizing “This is why I love her so much. She can be just as devious as me!” I get why people don’t like it though.
