At first he isn't believed by them, until a possessed Arisia (by the Main Power Battery) tells them what he speaks is true. The entire surviving Green Lantern Corps then head to the antimatter universe to stop the plan, while Sinestro is placed in a cell.

With his dying breath, Tomar gives his ring to John Stewart and Abin Sur's ring is returned to Hal Jordan, who once again becomes a Green Lantern.
