Vader comes back and insists, “In addition, I wish you to wear this dress and hood.” Lando protests and again, Vader tells him, “I changed the deal. Pray that I will not change it again. Han and Lando talk about it first In other words, I argued that much of the criticism of Emperor Palpatine`s leadership style has no place. But he and Vader blew it when it comes to the contractual clause. “Based on Justin`s false statements at his press conference and the fact that Canada is imposing massive tariffs on our American farmers, workers and businesses, I have ordered our U.S. MPs not to support the communiqué, as we are looking at the car tariffs that are flooding the U.S. market!” Trump tweeted about Air Force One en route to Singapore, where he was scheduled to meet Kim Jong Un. Lando: You must at least stay here, they will be safe. It`s very, very difficult for me to say a lot of cool things about our current Prime Minister, except that he has beautiful hair. But he confronted Trump in a way that few people expected, the least Trump. In a way, the empire forced Lando to do what they wanted with him because Lando had no choice but to refuse to negotiate with Vader. But Lando must have thought that this deal wasn`t too damaging, because after what he knew, Vader just wanted to imprison an unknown person and Han, Leia, and the Wookiees agreed to leave Cloud City after Vader caught Luke.
I don`t know if Lando was aware of Vader`s intention to torture Han and Chewie, but I doubt it because I think Vader thought Lando would be more cooperative if he thinks he can avoid the threat the Empire poses to his affairs. It`s clear that Vader is constantly changing the deal, or what seems more likely to me, Vader lied all the time and only did what he had planned before entering Cloud City. One of my few pedagogical innovations as a constitutional law professor is to use Dark Vader`s “modification” of his agreement with Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back to illustrate the importance of the contractual clause that prohibits state laws that “infringe on the obligation of contracts.” A government that is not able to respect its treaties is not only violating the rights of the people, it ends up harming itself, because many will be reluctant to cooperate with it in the future. Especially because they wanted Luke to fall into the trap. For it to be credible, it would have to look normal. You can`t pretend. It`s like flying over New York and seeing it without being human. If you`ve freaked out Cloud City or taken everyone, power will show you that something is wrong. What about Leia and the Wookiee? You must never leave this city again.
It was never a condition of our agreement, any more than there was Han to this bounty hunter! Maybe you think you`re being treated unfairly. No no. All right. It would be unfortunate if I had to leave a garrison. Here are the dialogues of the relevant scenes. After the second scene, Lando turns against the Empire, which ultimately leads to his downfall. He helps Luke and Princess Leia escape from Cloud City, thwarting Vader`s plan. Later, in Return of the Jedi, it is Lando who leads the successful attack on the second Black Star.
