    For as cool a villain as that is and as cool a design, I don't think it lasted long enough in the comics in that his death came way too soon. DC could have mined a lot more out of Parallax than they did during the Kyle Rayner years.

    Carol uses a disguised Sinestro as her fake boyfriend to make Hal jealous (and Sinestro is doing the same with Carol).

    The episode is called #ItsComplicated if anyone is curious

    Basically most of the time Carol is stalking Hal around, but this time she blows him off, he finds out she's dating somebody named Thaal Sinclair, he gets jealous and starts stalking her around so she'll go out with him again, then eventually he begs Carol to take him back and she finally does. Then she admits that she was fake dating Thaal Sinclair to make Hal jealous so he'd pay attention to her again. Then Thaal Sinclair wipes off his flesh-colored disguise to reveal he's Thaal Sinestro, and he was fake dating Carol to get close to Hal so he could get revenge for Hal ditching him and ruining their bromance (I feel I should point out this is also why Sinestro went from a green to a yellow lantern, and they used the word bromance verbatim). Carol and Sinestro start attacking Hal, Dex-starr randomly shows up to piss Jessica off, Jessica tells Hal this is all his fault and he needs to apologize to them. Hal apologizes saying that if he wasn't so cool and handsome Carol wouldn't be so obsessed with him and if he wasn't so awesome and fun to hang out with then Sinestro wouldn't have been so sad when Hal ditched him. Jessica is pretty sure they're about to kill him but instead they forgive him and everybody hugs (Dex-starr says he loves Hal because he tastes like steak sauce). Then they all fly off happily Jessica is stunned that Hal's non-apology somehow worked.

    Long summary but like the episode title says it's complicated. lol

    Sounds like they all need therapy.

    Which in that universe I imagine is Saint Walker.

    It seems like they took some surprising influences from the Johns era bromance (sorry Anthony) .

    that part of john's gl run i wasn't too excited about.

    i remember being disappointed that sinestro felt he was the star of the gl book at the time.

    Think that's Johns tendency to want to get into villains' heads. When I read his Superman or Captain Marvel stuff, always get the sense he's more interested in Luthor and Black Adam than the former two.

    I mean, it's a common complaint that Johns loves his villains too much...

    he builds them up better than he does the protagonists of the books. I have always loved Hal Jordan as Green Lantern but the way John's protrayed Sinestro had me wondering how Hal ever managed to EVER defeat him. Just as driven, just as brave more focused??? Sigh I wish he put as much effort into showing what made Hal great as he did Sinestro. A hero is judged by the quality of his adversaries but one should build up both the protagonist AND the antagonist. Like for me John's portrayal of Black Adam way outshines his Shazam.
