Synopsis for "Bringing It Together"
With no power left in their Green Lantern Rings, Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner attempt to distract a group of charging aliens until help arrives in the form of the Xudarians led by Hal's new friend Tomar-Tu. But when Tomar-Tu finds himself cornered by one of the beasts, Hal runs to the rescue, hoping that bluffing about his ring's power will discourage the beast from attacking.
Suddenly, Rose Hardin and some other humans arrive, firing guns at the beasts, which sends them running. Rose is visibly shaken that her house was destroyed. Still, Guy admires Hal's courage in making the bluff, and Tomar-Tu is grateful. With the aliens taken care of, Hal turns his attention between the Guardians of the Universe and the insane Appa Ali Apsa.
With the help of Pazu Pinder Pol, Hal realizes that the Guardians are sacrificing their fighting power in order to maintain Oa's gravity, and protect the transplanted cities that had been put there. Hal convinces Pazu Pinder Pol to tell the other Guardians to give up on the gravitational field in order to conserve their power. Then, Hal uses John Stewart's mind connection with Appa Ali Apsa to project feelings of loneliness into the rogue Guardian's mind.
The result of seeing the cities transplanted onto the planet being torn from it's surface, combined with feelings of loneliness leads Appa Ali Apsa to release his control of Oa's power. The Guardians then blast him with their power, killing him.
The Guardians decide to rebuild Oa's Central Power Battery, and restore the Green Lantern Corps. They decide that they will select one of each of the three remaining Green Lanterns to either recruit new corpsmen, rebuild Oa, or return to Earth as Green Lantern of Sector 2814. Guy and John discuss the future while Hal returns to help Rose and her son Toby rebuild their house. He promises to return to visit them, but that he is inexorably both Green Lantern and Hal Jordan, and never one or the other. With that in mind, Hal declares his mid-life crisis over, and reaffirms his status as a Green Lantern.
