– Could we be getting a funeral for you-know-who in Episode VIII? We mull over the possibility.
– A bonus clip of Maz from The Force Awakens DVD was released, giving us a behind-the-scenes look at how she was brought to life.
– Taron Egerton appeared on the Jonathan Ross show to quash those Han Solo rumors. Or, did he?
– Donya asks what everyone’s obsession with getting Welsh people to say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
– We get Donya to say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, and Mikey makes it into a ringtone.
– The cover art for The Force Awakens comic adaptation has been revealed. What’s our verdict so far?

– We discuss Finn’s role in The Force Awakens and whether he’ll stay when he recovers from his injuries.
– What’s next for Finn in Episode VII?? Will we see a showdown between Finn and Phasma?
