TV Spot #7 Shows Han and Rey Dialogue

Yet another TV spot for The Force Awakens has arrived, giving us more small snippets of new footage. In an extension on a scene previously glimpsed in TV spot #2, Han Solo hands Rey a small blaster pistol, and says "You might need this," as they stand next to the Millennium Falcon in a forest. They're on Takodana, presumably about to enter Maz Kanata's castle, full of all kinds of thugs and pirates.

"I think I can handle myself," she confidently replies, and we see the proof as she whacks a thug with her staff in a Jakku marketplace. "That's why I'm giving it to you," he insists. 
Rey should really listen to him; she'll wield this gun (to no avail) against Kylo Ren in a similar jungle, most likely on Takodana. 
This is a bit of a stretch, but you could argue that Han's desire for Rey's protection is further evidence of their direct blood relation. Even if Han isn't yet aware that he's her father (Rey won't find out until they meet Maz, at the earliest), he still may feel a subtle fatherly instinct. 

Also in this TV spot: 
  1. "Are we really doing this?" Finn shouts from the gunner's station of the Millennium Falcon. It's nice to see that for once, the man is the hesitant and nervous one, while the woman is reckless and daring, instead of the usual gender roles in films. 
  2. Several stormtroopers are knocked down by an epic explosion as an X-Wing flies by. This looks to be in the remnants of Maz Kanata's castle, after its destruction glimpsed earlier in this TV spot. 
  3. We get another teensy snippet of the Finn vs Sole Competent Stormtrooper duel, as the trooper twirls around his electric baton like a showoff. 
What did you think of this TV spot? Tell me in the comments, and may the Force be with you all.
