Seeing his son Ben Solo crumpled on the floor, Han insisted, "What's wrong with Ben?" Silence. "Are you going to answer me, Leia? What's going on here?"
"Nothing's wrong with Ben. He'll be fine. I just tranquilized him," Leia said, trying to brush off the incident.
"What was he doing? Are you gonna tell me?" Han advanced on his wife, his larger body threatening her petite form.
"You're not going to like it," she said.
"I like it a whole bunch less that I don't know. What was he doing, Leia?" he asked again, stepping in closer to her.
"C-C-Controlling you," she stuttered, crouching back from him.
Han was livid, waving his arms to emphasize his thoughts. "My own son! Leia, what type of monster has he become?" His eyes focused on the hypospray in her hand. "And why did you have a hypospray ready? Has he done this to others?"
Leia just looked at him. "He's too strong for trances now, Han. He's stronger than I am. The medical team has created these hyposprays to keep him under control."
"The medical TEAM? How many people know that Ben is...this monster, Leia? How could this have gotten so far out of control?"
"Oh, Han, I thought I could guide him to the light side, but he's so strong. He's so full of anger and fear."
"There's too much of Vader in him."
