Green Lantern the Animated Series Episode 13 Homecoming Review
As always there will be spoilers, so be warned.
As the Red Lanterns, are coming, Hal Jordan has a daring plan to make itto OA, as he leaves with Razer, as Kilowog tries to hold the flank. The Red Lanterns make it to OA, with the Guardians at their mercy, which there is done. As the defenses slowly erode, it appears that all hope is lost.
Hal Jordan finds his way to Earth but has no memory of his time as the Green Lantern. As Carol Ferris does what she can to restore his memory, he took the trip to Zamora, to enlist the help of the Star Sapphires, using the love that he had for Carol to transport him there, at the risk of scrambling his brain slightly.
As Kilowog appears to be losing badly, Saint Walker, the first Blue Lantern shows up, and with him, is Mogo the Living Planet. The battle between the three warriors take place against the entire Red Lantern fleet, as Razer saves Aya in time for getting her higher functions erased to be a more useful puppet.
Just as the Guardians are about to be exterminated, Hal Jordan shows up, trying to reason with Atrocitus, but there is no reasoning to be had. Hal Jordan
This is the season 1 finale and I'll be honest, the first season had some moments and it was up and down. There is another thirteen episode season that has been ordered. After that where we go from there and if this cartoon lasts past then, only time will tell.
However this episode had a lot of suspense and action, just the right out. It wrapped up all of the subplots for this season, about as well it can be, as where as the Red Lanterns are concerned. Obviously there have been some plot threads set up for the second season.
Overall after this season, it did seem like we were just really treading water for a lot of it, but it did turn around with these last couple of episodes. Let's hope that the second season and any future seasons of Green Lantern will be great. This was a pretty solid season finale.
8/10 rating, for this season finale. New episodes of Green Lantern the Animated Series will be airing soon. You can watch Green Lantern the Animated Series Episode 13 Homecoming if you have Cartoon Network on Demand or on Sunday May 27th 2012 if you missed it.
