In New Mexico, after the White Lantern Power Battery is found inside a crater, two officers go down inside the crater and try to remove the White Power Battery. However, they fail to do so. One of the officers then asks for help from the bystanders. One of the bystanders says he is about to get some help. The officer looks up and sees Hal Jordan, Carol Ferris and Sinestro coming. One of the officers panics, pulls out his gun, and tells Sinestro to not move. Sinestro makes a construct of a police car and tries to crush the officers, but is stopped by Hal. Hal and the others talk about the power battery and why it's on Earth. Sinestro suggests that the Life Entity dissipated into the sky but coalesced back together and feel back to Earth. Hal questions if the power battery is the White Light that resurrected Aquaman and the others. Hal tells Sinestro that he didn't bring him there because he wanted to but because he couldn't lift the White Lantern. Sinestro asks if Hal can. Hal tries to remove it but fails; Carol then asks if it's like the sword in the stone. Sinestro asks what the sword in the stone is; Hal then makes a construct of King Arthur to show him what they are talking about.
