Chewbacca’s wife Malla, his son Lumpy and his father Itchy are getting worried. They radio contact a good human friend and rebel sympathizer who owns a local merchant shop on kashyyyk. But the merchant has no clue to what is delaying the Falcon. Nevertheless he agrees to come over and visit the wookiees. The family also contacts Luke and Leia. The rebels however, also cannot explain Han and Chewbacca’s delay but tries to calm the family down.
