After the two trade barbs, Han slowly unhooks his blaster under the table, and appears to shoot and kill Greedo in cold blood, establishing him early on as a ruthless survivor. Multiple re-edits from Lucas though have sought to backtrack, citing a need to cling to “a mythological reality that we hope our society pays attention to.” From there, it’s spawned a thousand debates as to what Lucas’s actual intentions originally were. Why it’s important Han shot first, and why a shoddy edit in the extended version only made things more complicated.
