Synopsis for "The Revenge of Black Hand Part 2"
Black Hand takes the Book of the Black, but is shocked to discover that all its pages read Hal Jordan is not your enemy. Enraged, Black Hand attacks Hal and Sinestro, but Hal paralyzes him by shooting him in the head. Knowing that they need two rings of different colors to defeat undead Lanterns, Hal tries to call Carol for help, but Black Hand's ring causes interference. Hal and Sinestro leave the house to boost the ring's signal, but they find themselves surrounded by undead people.
Meanwhile, the Guardians discuss recent events. During the Blackest Night, the Green Lantern Corps was forced to join forces with the other Lantern Corps to defeat the Black Lanterns. Resenting the other Corps, the Guardians have decided to destroy them. With Hal no longer possessing a ring and Sinestro under their control, the Guardians do not consider the other group a threat. They also intend to take advantage of John's guilt for destroying Mogo. They will use Guy Gardner's pride to destroy him. Ganthet promises to personally deal with Kyle Rayner, who still believes he can rescue him.
The Guardians have arrived at Nok, the Indigo homeworld, and intend to defeat the Indigo Tribe.
Black Hand commands his zombies to attack the Green Lanterns, who do their best to keep them at bay. He also tries to decipher the Book's words, wonder who Hal Jordan is, if not his greatest enemy. Suddenly the words Hal Jordan will be the greatest... begin to appear on the Book's pages, terrifying Black Hand.
As Hal and Sinestro hover above the zombies, Hal belives they have no chance to fight without Carol. Suddenly, Sinestro summons his Yellow Battery. Hal says that Sinestro does not have a yellow ring, but Sinestro's plan is to use their green rings to destroy the battery, and the explosion will take out the zombies. Hal and Sinestro unite their rings and succesfully detonate the Battery, severing the zombies' connection to Black Hand.
However, Black Hand survives and finds Hal and Sinestro unconscious. Black Hand reads the Book again, revealing the phrase: Hal Jordan will be the greatest Black Lantern.
