Han starts out and really enters this journey on the motivation of getting a reward from royalty for helping Princess Leia. And it’s the same in the sense that Finn’s circumstance, it influences an element of dishonesty and Han sees that, he susses it. He’s like, “I know what you’re doing, kid,” and he susses that out. But also, it’s a nice charming relationship, because Finn doesn’t have respect for him. Finn is not like, “oh my gosh, you’re…” Finn’s just kind of like, “yeah, so how’re you going to help?” And that makes a funny relationship. And also, Han knowing so much now, it’s like, “this kid is like me and I’m gonna have his back.” And I love that. - John Boyega.

All remaining systems will bow to the First Order and will remember this as the last day of the Republic!”
