Synopsis for "The Revenge of Black Hand Part 1"
At Nok, the Indigo Tribesmen are releasing Sinestro from the Indigo ring's influence. At the same time, Sinestro is having a vision of his time as a Green Lantern alongside Hal. As the process is finished, Hal tells Sinestro that the Indigo Tribe agreed to release him under his custody. He also says that Natromo has inverted the bond between their rings. Instead of Sinestro controlling Hal's ring, it's the other way around now. Annoyed, Sinestro asks about Black Hand.
The group goes to where Black Hand was last seen; instead, they find a pile of black slime, the same matter Black Lanterns are made of. Seeing that the slime originated from a cliff, Hal and Sinestro believe that Black Hand tried to commit suicide to prevent the Indigo ring from inducting him again. And now, Black Hand is back from the dead.
Meanwhile on Earth, Black Hand has killed everyone on a Chinese restaurant, taking a bag of food with him. Walking towards a nearby graveyard, Black Hand reanimates his family's corpses.
On Oa, the Guardians track Sinestro's recent movements. Their map also detect a second ring near Sinestro. The Guardians finally locate Sinestro on Korugar.
Indigo-1 has teleported Hal and Sinestro to Korugar. She also says that Natromo and the Tribe will prepare to fight the Guardians, believing they can be redeemed just like she was. Sinestro, however, does not share her faith. He warns Indigo-1 not to try to force him into the Indigo Tribe again, or he will kill every Indigo Lantern. Indigo-1 admits that it would be an interesting battle and leaves.
Hal and Sinestro go into Korugar's sewers. Sinestro is ready to fight the Guardians, but Hal believes they can be redeemed, taking Ganthet as an example. When Sinestro asks if Black Hand can be redeemed, Hal does not answer.
On Earth, Black Hand has taken his undead family to his old house. There, he states that he will be turn everyone in the world into zombies. Everyone will be like him so that he doesn't have to be the "outsider" anymore.
Sinestro takes Hal into a secret base he installed in Korugar's sewers. As they enter the base, Hal finds a picture of Sinestro and his wife Arin Sur. Hal says she was beautiful, but Sinestro destroys the picture. Then, Sinestro opens a vault that contains the Book of the Black. He had recovered the Book from Lyssa Drak.
Sinestro opens the Book to find out more about the Guardians' place, but the Book teleports him and Hal to Black Hand's home.
