Tatooine's twin suns set, and we head back inside Jabba's palace. The petite bounty hunter approaches frozen Han and fiddles with a bunch of instruments on the wall.
The carbonite heats up, and Han is released. He falls to the ground, shaking. Being frozen in carbonite will do that to you.
The bounty hunter tells Han to relax and brings him up to speed: He's free of the carbonite, he's in Jabba's palace, he has hibernation sickness, and while he may be blind right now, his vision will return. That's everything.
Oh, yeah—Han wants to know who his mysterious liberator is. Off comes the bounty hunter's helmet: It's Princess Leia.
She's stoked to see Han, and she doesn't even have a nasty case of helmet hair. They get their smooch on.
Just as Han and Leia get ready to escape, a curtain behind them opens to reveal Jabba and his posse.
Han tries to tell Jabba that they can talk this out, but Jabba's not having it, and Han's led away.
Meanwhile, Jabba asks that Leia be brought to him. She tells him that he's going to regret this; they have powerful friends. Jabba says, "I'm sure." Who knew slugs could be smart-alecks?
