* Han misinterpreting Leia when she says she loves Luke, and willing to step out of the way when Luke returns, not knowing Luke and Leia recently found out they're brother and sister.

* Han misinterpreting Leia when she says she loves Luke, and willing to step out of the way when Luke returns, not knowing Luke and Leia recently found out they're brother and sister. Even though it would break his heart to lose Leia, he loves them both so much that he'd be willing to part with his OneTrueLove so she could be with one of his best friends. If that's not love, I don't know what is. Also counts as some serious CharacterDevelopment from the Han at the beginning of A New Hope.

* The Original theatrical ending. All of it. The Highlight of the ending, is when Luke returns and is reunited with Han and Leia. For some reason, the 1997 endings onward truncate and split up this scene. And of course, Luke seeing his father as the man he would have been had he not turned to the dark side, sharing a friendly look with Obi-Wan and then favoring his offspring with a loving smile.

Added DiffLines:

* When luke joins the rebel briefing (after realizing Leia is his sister), Leia immediately hugs him in front of everybody, notices he is looking at her intently, and asks "What is it?". Luke simply says "ask me again sometime."
** the scene where he does tell her is one of the most touching scenes in the saga.

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that we see the first possible kernels of Obi-Wan and Yoda being wrong about Vader in this scene; Luke offers Vader to come with him, and for the first time across the entire trilogy, Vader's shell breaks and the Dark Lord of the Sith seems weary, quiet, and resigned. Doubles as a TearJerker if you consider that Vader is entirely aware of how his master operates at this point, and that Luke is his intended replacement.

* Darth Vader seemingly throwing away the fight just so Luke can win, Deep down he knows the Emperor expects only one of them to come out alive and isn't willing to kill his own child so in an act of attempted sacrifice he toys with Luke long enough to get him angry and leads both of them towards the shaft allowing Vader to put himself on the railing allowing Luke to deal him every blow till he cuts his arm off allowing Luke to come out as the victor.
* Vader putting his hand out towards Luke as if it's a way to physically tell him to calm down and control his emotions

Added DiffLines:

* Luke and Darth Vader's interaction when Luke surrenders himself. Luke tries so hard to speak to his father and bring him back from the DarkSide, even though Vader repeatedly denies that there's any hope left for him. Heck, the fact that he calls him "Father" is an indicator that some love is there between them.

** Anakin's smile the moment he lays his eyes on his son. It tells us his emotion with just one expression, he's proud of his children.

** His son has utterly surpassed him; he's mastered himself and the ways of the Jedi, has gained power greater than his own without falling to the dark side, and has shown up alone to face the most powerful evil in the galaxy and has basically ''just won'' by refusing to give the Emperor what he wants- how proud would that make anyone feel, to see their son be so epically awesome?
