Han and Lando Won't Stop Flirting in 'Risk' TV Spot

If you thought the Solo marketing train was gonna give us a few days of rest, you were wrong. A second TV spot dropped today, this time focusing on Han and Lando's relationship, as well as the team-building and "trust no one" aspect of the movie. 
A breakdown of all the new footage:
  1. A new shot of Beckett, Chewie, and Han in an elevator. It looks like this is their entrance into the fancy club where they meet Dryden Vos.
  2. Han, Beckett, Qi'ra, and Chewie walking into a ramshackle settlement in the middle of a desert. We know Han has a Western-style showdown with Enfys Nest in the same place (or a very similar one).
  3. "What are you doing with hairy and the boy?" Lando asks Qi'ra, providing us with the only canonical nickname for Han and Chewie that we ever needed. This also gives us some insight into Lando and Qi'ra's relationship—maybe in the past she's fooled around with him, too?
  4. Qi'ra tells Lando they need a ship. "The Millennium Falcon. Every ship isn't for everyone. She needs a particular type of pilot," Lando tells Han over their game of Sabacc. Judging by how pristine the ship looks to be under Lando's care, and how filthy it gets after a few years with Han, we can guess Han isn't the pilot Lando has in mind.
  5. "You done flirting?" L3-37 asks Lando, probably after his "Might wanna buckle up, baby" line from the trailer. It's nice to see a character actually recognize that Lando is a bisexual icon who likes to flirt with Han.
  6. "These people are not you friends," Beckett tells Han in the club, as we see sneaky Qi'ra eavesdropping on someone. Listen to him, Han! Qi'ra's not your friend! She might be Enfys Nest!
  7. "Han!" Lando calls, before tossing him his blaster pistol during a firefight outside the Falcon. Friends who fight together, stay together. (Oh wait, Lando's kind of a crappy friend who betrays Han at least once. But that's okay, Chewie is the only bro he needs.)
What did you think of this TV spot? How much do you love Han and Lando's flirting? Tell me in the comments or tweet to @sithobserver, and may the Force be with you all.
