Green Lantern: The Animated Series s01e13 Episode Script


1x13 - Homecoming Previously on Green Lantern Atrocitus used those planet killers to tear a hole right through the Maelstrom.
Big enough for his whole spite armada to roll into Oan space.
I'm sorry, Hal.
I'm now a soldier for the righteous crusade of Atrocitus.
So that's it.
That's your plan.
I just got one question.
Are you nuts!? Ok.
This harebrained scheme makes my other schemes seem well-thought-out and practical.
But what else can we do? Nothing.
Thanks to us, the Red Lantern fleet will have no trouble pouring into Guardian space.
And we're stuck here while Atrocitus flies the Interceptor to Oa and exterminates the Guardians.
My plan won't help us beat them to Oa, but maybe, just maybe, we can get to the same galactic neighborhood.
Let's move out.
Even you can't beat an entire armada.
I can slow them down, maybe buy a little time for that plan of yours.
You'll need every minute.
You got this, sergeant.
Godspeed, Hal.
Coordinates achieved.
Dropping out of ultra warp.
At last.
Now, the day of vengeance has arrived.
Incoming message from the surface.
Unidentified vessel, you have breached Oan space.
Identify yourself immediately.
We are discovered.
Initiate attack before they send Green Lanterns! Belay that order.
Drusa, your puppet.
I repeat, identify or face This is Green Lantern craft Interceptor requesting emergency landing.
Hal Jordan and Kilowog have been wounded and require immediate medical attention.
I also have vital information regarding the Red Lanterns.
Understood, Interceptor, and welcome home.
What's going on here? Where am I? I I know her.
It's her.
It's - Carol.
Carol! - Hal? Hal! It is you! Hal, what are you doing here? I I promised to take you to diner.
In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might beware my power, Green Lantern's light.
Salaak, bear the injured to the medical dome immediately.
Yes, yes, as soon as I've received this vital intelligence the A.
spoke of.
Then, prep the ship to rendezvous with our corps in sector - Hello, Guardians.
- Atrocitus! Fall back.
Fall back! How is this possible? What are we to do? For the moment, nothing, Guardian.
We are in the most fortified spot on Oa, and even with the corps deployed, we are not without defenses.
Blast them! This, perhaps, is not unlike what the people of the forgotten zone experienced at the hands of our Manhunters.
It's hard to believe it all actually happened.
It was like a dream or something.
One minute, I'm in my office, and then, bam! I'm on another planet fighting you.
What? You look gorgeous, by the way.
Hal, are you all right? Of course.
I'm with you.
Refill? No, thanks.
It's just that you seem a little Look, Carol, all I know is I was far from you and needed to find you.
And now, we're together.
Everything's going to be ok.
But what happened out there? Frontier space, the Red armada.
What? The Red Lantern army.
Were they stopped? What about your friends out there, the other Green Lanterns? What's a Green Lantern? Ok, Reds.
It may be just a matter of time, but I'm not making this easy on you.
- Where is it? - Carol, what's wrong with you? Why are we back at the base? You didn't even look at the dessert menu.
It's got to be here somewhere.
- What's got to be here? - Your power battery.
You once told me well, Green Lantern told me That your power ring has to be recharged by a battery that he keeps close by.
- Green Lantern told you? - Yes, you as Green Lantern.
Anyway, since you spend more time at Ferris air than anywhere else, it must be here.
What is it? Where did it come from? I believe it came in a gift set with this.
I think they know each other.
- What are you doing? - Maybe nothing, but whenever I have trouble with my desktop, the I.
guys reboot the system.
I'm hoping this will reboot your system.
Hal, try to remember.
Will yourself to remember.
In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight.
let those who worship evil's might beware my power, Green Lantern's light! I remember.
Had to do the impossible.
Get to Oa before Atrocitus.
I could only think of one way.
Now I see why you wanted me along as your bodyguard.
Easy, quick draw.
We're not here to fight.
We're here to beg.
Great Aga'po, I know you think I'm your enemy, but there's a galaxy-wide tragedy brewing, and only the power of the Star Sapphires can help stop it.
You risk much, Green Lantern, asking favors of an enemy.
But perhaps I should first consult my royal advisor.
It was you who opened my eyes to the true meaning of love, Hal Jordan.
My enlightenment met with resistance, at first.
But then, the truth took root and spread quickly.
It seems that over the ages, the Star Sapphires may have lost sight of the emotion we serve.
Since you helped us regain our path, what do you ask of us? I need you to teleport me my home planet.
What you ask for cannot be done.
But I saw you teleport Carol Ferris here all the way from Earth.
So use my feelings for Carol to send me to Earth.
From there, I can fly to Oa and stop a tragedy before it happens.
The jaunt from Earth was the longest we've ever attempted, and we've never sent anyone the other way.
There is something more.
The spatial displacement can render the traveler - unstable.
- It is too dangerous.
If he doesn't reach Oa, not only will the Guardians be destroyed, but Atrocitus will lay waste to all the worlds in their care.
Love and everything else will cease to exist in Guardian space.
I've got to try.
Make sure this galaxy remains a safe garden where love can bloom.
- Carol - I know.
The galaxy's in danger, and you stopped for a 4-course meal.
Go already.
But you're still on the hook for dessert.
Well, if it's my time to clock out, at least I know I went down swinging.
Who are you supposed to be? I am merely the conduit of the great hope that surrounds us all.
I am St.
Walker, and I believe I am the first Blue Lantern in the universe.
Thanks for the power boost.
But one extra soldier ain't exactly going to turn the tide.
I agree.
That's why I brought a friend.
I am honored to help Green Lantern Kilowog.
Now, that's more like it.
You're leaving us, Razer? I won't lounge here in luxury while evil triumphs.
Then go in the spirit of love.
Love will doubtless be foremost in my mind as I hurl myself into the path of an unstoppable armada.
You are not as far gone as we had assumed, Razer.
There is still love in your heart.
If you truly wish to help Hal Jordan, there is another way.
You go, Mogo! You know, considering my backup is a couple of rookies, I'm starting to feel lucky.
Don't put your trust in luck, friend.
She is fickle.
Shoot it, Mogo.
Now! - What are they? - Liberators.
Planet killers.
Our triumph is at hand.
Only a few feet of Raconian stands between me and the vengeance I have awaited for centuries.
Any final words, Green Lantern? Yes.
Open dome.
Welcome Green Lantern.
You've arrived just in time to watch the Guardians pay for their crimes against the forgotten zone.
Well, as much as I've been looking forward to the winner-take-all, no-holds-barred cage match, I've got something to say Something I never thought I'd hear coming out of my mouth.
You're right.
What the Manhunters did to your sector was a tragedy.
Your rage is earned.
But destroying life here isn't going to change what happened there.
Let's work together to find a solution, a way to make things better for the people of the forgotten zone.
Let us help.
You can help, Earth man.
Your dying screams will help soothe the restless souls of our dead! If you are going to destroy me, there is a more expedient method.
Destroy you? I wouldn't dream of it.
I'm just deleting all of your higher functions so you'll behave like a proper NAV computer.
Say good-bye, my puppet.
H how It does not matter.
We must find Hal Jordan.
Hey, moon face, that blue ring of yours is boosting me, so why ain't it boosting Mogo? I think I have to be within a certain proximity to a green power ring to amplify its power.
Mogo's is inconveniently located miles below the surface.
I got an idea.
Let's hope this works.
Well, what do you know! I've been looking forward to this for quite some time! You are no match for me.
You never had a chance! He cannot fight on.
He has not the strength.
He may not have the strength but does he have the will? Guards! Retreat! Wait! Zox, soldiers, all of you! Listen.
Stop this war before it begins.
I was telling the truth.
The Green Lanterns will help rebuild your shattered sector.
Do you seriously expect us to believe that anything will change? Who here would ever come to the forgotten zone? I will come.
What happened to your sector was a tragedy, but our willingness to ignore the tragedy we caused was a crime.
I pledge to you the Guardians will make restitution.
You will find me a loud and grating voice of justice for my sector, Guardian.
Whatever reparations you think are enough, start by doubling them.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
More or less.
Can the Guardians trust Zilius Zox? They can trust him to do whatever's in his best interest, and that's a start.
Razer, how in the world did you get to Oa as fast as I did? I yet been debriefed.
That is, we Guardians have not yet had a chance to to thank you, Hal Jordan.
You just did.
But I've got to get back to Earth.
You have just averted an intergalactic war.
What on Earth could possibly be more important than that? Dessert.
