Ragnar is still stewing based off of his rage, thus a Red Lantern ring finds him. As a result of his new found powers and Red Lantern chums, Ragnar, imprisons his sister, Queen Iolande, leading to Hal Jordan, Killowog, Aya, and Razer needing to save the day.
Meanwhile, the Guardians have decided the best course of action is shielding the Green Lantern Corps from the truth and sending the Green Lanterns to deal with the Red Lantern menace. The truth comes out, as Ganthet reveals the twisted history of the Manhunters and wants to help Hal Jordan and the rest, but he is exiled. With the help of the other sympathetic Guardian, Sayd, Ganthet sends a prototype weapon.
The mysterious blue light, allows our Green Lantern Team to defeat the Red Lanterns, because the bright blue light of hope causes their rings to be not functional(including Razer), and stop the Lanterns from blowing up the planet of Betrassus. The day is saved. Ganthet goes his own way, as the Blue Lantern does as well.
This episode ends with a dedicationto the late Ian Ambercombie, who played the role of Ganthet in this series.
A great episode, one of the best, because it did not fall into the formula that this show has gone right into throughout the past. I rather enjoyed a lot of this episode, a lot of for what it was, it was rather action fact.
The Guardians of the Universe, with a couple of notable exceptions, deserve pretty much everything the get if the Red Lanterns slaughter them. Then again, they are politicians right to the end and politicians are going to stick their heads right into the sand and just ignore their past mistakes. The Manhunters were one of their greatest shames.
In the end, we really should have expected that Ragnar would have gotten a Red Lantern ring.
The Blue Lantern, the symbol of hope, made its debut, and obviously with the debut of Saint Walker a few episodes ago, all of the pieces are being put into place there. Should be interesting to see how those pieces fall.
