Six Reasons Those Han Solo Fan Theories Are Definitely False
Spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens follow!
I mean, I don't know if it really counts as a spoiler at this point, but here goes: in case you didn't know, Han Solo dies at the end of The Force Awakens. Han is an integral part of the Star Wars universe, and with that comes fans who believe he's still alive. No one was sadder than me over his death in The Force Awakens, but even I can't deny the hard-and-fast evidence that he did, in fact, die. As much as I hate to even think my favorite Star Wars character is dead, the evidence is solid. Here's a list of facts that poke holes in those crazy fan theories:
It was written in the stars
His death scene was not ambiguous
Leia did not foresee Han's death
Many fans on the internet think that Leia had foreseen Han's death, so she must have had some plan in effect to counteract Han dying. Well, there's really no proof—or even evidence—to support that she did. Leia has always had "feelings," but never actually predicted anything. No one knows for sure what Leia learned of the Force between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, but it's a bit of a stretch to say she knew what was going to happen. If she did in fact possess foresight, then why send Han to bring home their son, if she knew the outcome?
Kylo did not fake Han's death
Yes Kylo was struggling with the light and dark sides of the Force, but he knew he needed to solidify his role as a Sith, and that meant killing his father. Some say Kylo bent his lightsaber around Han to make it look like he killed him, but this is preposterous. We clearly see the lightsaber through Han's torso, and then pulled from it. I think it's safe to assume that Kylo meant to kill Han, and did just that.
Captain Phasma was not even close to being involved
Cast lists don't really mean anything
