Gambler’s Choice

The Empire Strikes Back NPR Radio DramaLuke arrives in Cloud City, suspicious by the lack of any official greeting or acknowledgement of his arrival. He spots Boba Fett and an entourage of stormtroopers, giving chase until they drive him back – and even when he sees Leia and hears her warning that he’s walking into a trap, Luke presses on toward the carbon freezing chamber and an inevitable confrontation with Darth Vader. In the meantime, Lando turns the table on the Imperial troopers, freeing Leia and Chewbacca and leading them toward the Falcon. But he hasn’t quite gained Leia’s trust – a situation which isn’t helped by Boba Fett’s hasty departure with the frozen Han Solo aboard his ship.
