Welcome to this week’s installment of DC Nation. Today’s episode of Green Lantern is titled “In Love and War.” The Green Lanterns discover the Star Sapphires. Today is the first episode of season two of Young Justice, which added Invasion to the title, and is titled “Happy New Year.” It’s five years later, and the team discovers alien invaders. The short segments include a profile of Blue Beetle (Jamie Reyes), a Super Best Friends Forever cartoon titled “Grounded,” and a new Mad cartoon titled “Teen Titanic.” Once again, I imagine that I’ve spelled most of the things wrong in the Green Lantern episode. I’ll fix it when I can find the correct spellings.
Green Lantern: The Animated Series – “In Love and War”
Kilowog is feeling down about leaving Galia behind. Hal is trying to cheer him up when Aya alerts them that there is something 20 seconds away. It turns out that this thing is a giant space monster. They are aided by two Star Saphires, named Acapo, Gyita. They offer the Lanterns rest and repairs on their home planet of Zamaron. Acapo looks into Kilowog, and sees he’s suffering from a broken heart. A Star Sapphire ring goes to Galia. Acapo tells Hal that they used to be with the Guardians, long ago, but they disagreed with the Guardians about the role of emotions. The Sapphires believed that only love could heal the universe. Gyita takes Hal on a tour, but he brushes her advances off. Kilowog runs into Galia. He asks how she got here, but she tells him to hush, and that she has something that can keep them together forever. Aya has fixed the ship, but she can’t get Kilowog to respond. Razer contacts Hal, who tells him not to worry. It’s revealed that Kilowog has been encased in a crystal. Queen Acapo is unhappy that Hal hasn’t fallen in love with Gyita yet, and tells her to take stronger actions. Gyita gives Hal a drink, and finds that he already has a true love in Carol Ferris. Acapo sends a ring to Carol. On Earth, Carol has just been told that Hal can’t be found when she’s offered a ring. Razer approaches Acapo, and demands to know where Kilowog is. Acapo invites Razer to join her in searching for him. She denies Aya entrance though. Aya decides to go on her own search, and finds Kilowog, among many others, encased in crystal. When she tries to contact Razer, she is attacked by Galia. She subdues Galia, and flees. Aya finds Razer as Acapo was offering him drinks, and tells him that Kilowog has been imprisoned. The ring transports Carol to Hal. Carol sees Gyita, becomes jealous, and attacks her. Eventually, Hal is able to reason with Carol, and get her to stop fighting. They kiss, she comes to her senses, and Hal tells her what’s been going on. Gyita tells Carol that she can use the power of love to keep him. Carol tells her that that isn’t actually love. Carol gives back the Star Sapphire ring, and is returned to Earth. Hal gets Kilowog out of the crystal, and they go to help Razer and Aya, who are fighting Acapo and her guards. Gyita tries to convince Acapo to release them. Acapo looks into Razer’s mind, and realizes that Aya looks like Razer’s love Alana. With the help of Gyita, the Green Lanterns are able to escape.
