    • What is This Beautiful Madness?

      I can't believe it ended there. Yes, all problems solved; but now more questions remain. Is Aya really still alive? What will become of Hal and Kilawog? How will Razer fair as a Blue Lantern?

      Why couldn't this continue?


      This crazy, eventful, bitter-sweet episode was a wonderful finale. It made me cry, I admit it. They really wrapped up everything quite nicely.

      I still wish this series could continue, but at least I got my wish and they ended the season and the series with a bang.moreless
    • there is hope, there is always hope xxx

      I write this review in tears as well as in love. Love that I enjoyed this series so much and a great pity that I have watched the last ever episode. Will it come back to us again? Maybe..

      Guardian Appa Ali Apsa said in his rousing speech to the lanterns that - We must continue to fight. Good luck to you, OUR Green Lantern Corps - somehow I felt that was a message to us fans too, that we must continue to fight, that we must unite as one to keep this series going. It will take a miracle, but there is always hope.

      The battle scenes were beautifully crafted, and we get to see our favourite characters have a piece of the action. Salaak, Tomar-Re, Ch'p, even Chaselon and Luvox had wonderful moments that can never be replaced. Guy Gardner in all his arrogance and ego was loveable all the same, and admired for his sarcastic humour. Pity indeed that we will never get to see the other Lanterns nor will the story expand to accommodate a lot of story lines still untold in the Green Lantern mythology.

      Kilowog, that gentle giant, that faithful loyal friend made me smile when he gave Razer a hug before flying off to find Aya, and made me feel for him so much when he tried to empathise with Razer.

      Hal as usual is in his heroic best - pleading with Aya, trying to make her see sense. But in the end, it was Razer's deep love for her that turned her around, with Aya sacrificing herself yet again to save him and the universe. It was wonderful to see this adorable couple together yet again even if it was so brief - I was expecting a kiss here, especially when Aya was in tears and Razer said that he can never kill her for all he had in his heart was love for her.

      And that heart-melting moment when Razer shed a tear because he truly could not bring himself to hurt his love, had me reaching out for tissues and sobbing along with him.

      But the end was equally poignant. We see Razer flying off to the universe in search of his true love Aya and the blue ring of hope following him. So yes, Razer becomes a blue lantern and with hope so strong as he has in his heart, no doubt, he WILL find his Aya, and his legions of fans all around the globe can be put out of their misery and heave a sigh of relief that once and for all, there is truly a happy ending for Razer and Aya xxxmoreless

      • ilowog: Too many of them! No way we're bustin' through.
        Guy: Ah, the little robots are too tough for the sergeant? You want I should send one of the guys out for a smaller, weaker, universe-threatening entity?
        ilowog: Why you puffed-up little hatchling, I'll show you who's tough!

      • Kilowog: I just got a message from Hal. He wants us to send in Razer, ASAP!
        Guy: Hal? Your friend who was just eaten, wants me to ignore orders, stop what we're doing, and try to get Red Pajamas here inside the giant robot corpse? Uh, I'll get right on that.

      • Aya: You will be all right, Razer. You must be all right.
        Razer: I will be... now that you have come back to me.
        Aya: I was a threat to everything. To all life. In that one moment, you could have struck me down. Why didn't you?
        Razer: How could i kill you? My red energy constructs are powered by hate, and there is no hate in my heart for you, Aya. Only love.

      • Razer: Don't leave me alone.
        Aya: You will never be alone. You have a family now. And somehow I know I will be with you, too. Watching over you always.
        Razer: I don't understand.
        Aya: I do not, either. It is just... a feeling.

      • Hal: You get in any trouble out there, find yourself in a jam, you don't hesitate to call us. 'Cause we will hightail out there and...
        Razer: Save me. I know, Hal. You already have.

      • Kilowog: I still say he's crazy. Even if she is out there, how's he going to find her in all that endless space?
        Hal: Knowing Razer, I'd say he's got a pretty good shot.
