They pretty clearly spell out that Jabba has Han and that they will be meeting at a distant point in the future at the rendezvous but to have planned it for a full year away seems a bit unplausable. All I can think and read into it myself is that it took a lot longer to get everything in place that they planned
For Lando to create a character, gain trust in Jabba’s crew and become “one of the boys” had to take same time. We’re talking about the galaxy’s greatest gansta’ leading the galaxy’s greatest gang. You don’t just walk into that place, buy the room a drink and get accepted.
Luke has clearly advanced in skills. There’s certainly some time tied up there.
The entire Rebellion has evaded the Empire, regrouped and found a temporary place to hide while also fining out about the new Death Star, examining the layout and finding a way to destroy it.
A year seems easily plausible to me.
I get the feeling you think I’m of the opinion that ROTJ comes nearly straight after TESB
Sorry if I’ve responded to you before. I tend to forget what I’ve said n’ who I said it to around here anymore.
There is also an issue in the line of thinking of actually being indoctrinated as one of the gang as then at some point Lando would have had to carry out acts that proves his worth to his employer and colleagues which likely then makes him not really suitable anymore as an honorable and trust worthy member of the rebellion (he’d probably have blood on his hands).
R1 shows that dirty deeds aren’t something the rebellion is above, nor should they be.
The fact he is hiding his identity behind his face guard to me confirms that it is an actual infiltration that runs the risk of being found out at any time through recognition
Hm. Good point. *fist bump
Anyways, I think we’re a bit off topic.
