Lure Luke into Carbon-Freeze Chamber
Thinks Luke's Skills Are
"I Am Your Father.""
Darth Vader has sinister plans to use Cloud City?s carbon-freeze chamber. Reluctant to try this crude process on the Emperor?s prize, Luke Skywalker, Vader decides to test it first on Han Solo. The process works, and although Luke finds his way into the chamber, Vader?s plans fail as Luke escapes and confronts him in heated lightsaber combat. At the end of this dramatic battle, Vader confesses to Luke the secret that has burned within him: He is indeed Luke?s father!
