Suddenly John attacks the League. Guy revives from his coma, is given a duplicate of the ring Ollie has, and becomes a Green Lantern again, trashing the Watchtower in doing so. Kilowog attacks Kyle Rayner, wanting the casket in the spaceship. The casket is opened to reveal Ganthet protecting Hal Jordan's body.
