Everything old is new again. The current arc of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps ressurects some of the rivalry the Green Lantern Corps had with the other rainbow lanterns (or even the older issues with the Manhunters) by this time pitting the Corps against the Darkstars. Created by the Controllers, the Darkstars are similar in makeup to the Green Lantern Corps by recruiting soldiers from across the universe. Where the Darkstars differ is in their blunt and brutal form of justice that ends in the same sentence: death.
While the Corps sets out to rescue former Lantern Tomar Tu, what Hal Jordan finds instead of brainwashed hostage is a willing member of the Darkstars (a group far larger in number than the Corps). Instead of a friend in need of rescue, Hal finds a disciple attempting to win the Green Lantern over to his side.
The size of the Darkstars army, their eagerness to kill, and their ability to phase across space at the drop of a hat are big takeaways in setting up the larger conflict between the two groups in the coming issues. Worth a look.

Relationships are the main theme of "Therefore She Is" which not only brings back Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) from Earth-19 to help stop DeVoe (Neil Sandilands) who has begun stealing various classified components for his Englightenment but also offers flashbacks to DeVoe and Marlize's (Kim Engelbrecht) relationship over the years. The DeVoe/Marlize scenes help fill in some basic information about the pair's relationship and how Marlize was eventually won over to her husband's radical ideas. As has been foreshadowed several times over the course of the season, the super-villain's recent actions finally create a split between the two (although apparently not enough of one for Marlize to stop the Enlightenment... at least not yet).
I've enjoyed the Cisco (Carlos Valdes)/Gypsy relationship, but the offer of a job on the alternate Earth was obviously the beginning of the end for the pair. Neither really wanting Cisco to take the job, but both needing more than what their current relationship offers, separates this pair of lovers as well. While less romantic in tone, even the smaller ongoing stories focus on relationships as Cecile (Danielle Nicolet) steps in to help Harry (Tom Cavanagh) work through his recent condition and discover DeVoe's master plan, and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) begins taking greater and greater risks to be reunited with her missing frosty alter-ego.
