Sinestro is making his own chains. It's like a metaphor or something.
Except Hal, for once, decides that fleeing might be better than fighting. He drags Sinestro out of the cave and gives chase to Indigo Yoda. The maniacs give chase because what else do you do when you suddenly get back your insane mind and two Green Lanterns are standing in front of you? You kill them!
Unless you're Black Hand.
So once the Indigo Tribe is restored, Black Hand won't be. And then he can drown Hal Jordan in his madness! How is DC not fixing the problem of covers not matching the stories inside the comic?
Hal is either a liar or deluded. He already claimed all he wanted was a power ring when trapped on Earth and dragging his ass back to Carol. And then he still kept playing the hero even without his ring. Being a hero is all he wants. If he really wanted to get back to Carol, he would let the Guardians destroy the Green Lantern Corps. He'd be free. But he's going to fight just like he does every time (except this one time that he's running) because the ring is all he wants.
And that's why Sinestro cannot be trusted as a Green Lantern. He'll always truly be a Yellow Lantern because fear is his go to weapon.
But William Hand manages to outsmart the ring.
Ha ha! Stupid ring!
Meanwhile, William Hand's corpse regurgitates a Black Ring which slips onto his finger. The Black Corps returns! Somebody cue the cover of Issue #9 for use on Issue #11!
I have no idea what a Black Lantern Ring is capable of besides resurrecting the corpse of the finger it's on.
