Luke is defeated when Vader severs his hand at the wrist and sends both the hand and his lightsaber flying into the abyss. Vader takes advantage of Luke's state of weakness to tell him that he is his father. After Luke cries out in shock and disbelief, Vader asks him to search his feelings. After a moment of reflection, Luke chooses to fall down the wind tunnel instead of take Vader's hand and accept his offer to "rule the galaxy as father and son."
      • Hanging perilously from a weather vane, Luke reaches out to Leia with the Force and she hears his plea. Luke is rescued by the Falcon, and Vader continues to reach out to Luke through the Force. His claim to be Luke's father remains ambiguous as the Falcon escapes the Empire's clutches.
