Predator Squadron fought their way to the cell block in the basement of Xizor’s palace. They unleashed a captive dianoga upon the Black Sun guards and then rescued a groggy Luke Skywalker (who was being suspended in a energy-rack in a room with these strange tiny lizard-creatures that had an effect on Force users).
Meanwhile Tobin sneaked his way into the upper levels with the intention of sabotaging the shield generator system. He found out that Xizor had some sort of problem, something about being betrayed. Tobin then found a facility that produced a back-up Guri. He programmed her to be resourceful and convinced her to join him. That said, something may have gone awry within the programming; at the very least this Guri is incredibly literal.
The squad flew off as the Super Star Destroyer Executor brought itself into position to bombard the building from orbit. The crowd at the Empire Day parade cheered – seeming to think that this was part of the show. Xizor was presumably killed in the attack.
The squad launched in a stolen shuttle and fighters, Tobin losing his arm to Guri (the Xizor bodyguard one, not the newest one) as she attempted to stop him. They flew off and evaded several dozen TIE Fighters as they made a break for space, followed by the Millennium Falcon, then dodged the point-defence guns of the orbital platforms before getting clear to hyperspace.
They met up with the Angel of Lothaland said farewell to Lando’s group. Luke gave some parting words of advice to Jacen regarding visions of the Force and the dark side.
With that Lando said they were heading for Tatooine, and Predator Squadron began making preparations for their assault against Grand Moff Kevlan and Kamino.
