Hal and Kilowog travel to a prison where they leave Razer to be imprisoned, however they find that a small creature, an escapee from the prison, has stowed away. Hal and Kilowog quickly decide to return him to the prison, however the escapee claims that the prisoners are in fact tortured rather then reformed. Hal and Kilowog sneak into the prison but are captured, the many crystals inside the prison nullifying their rings. Aya interfaces with the prisons computer systems and enters Razer's cell where he has been forced to relive the death of his wife and becoming a red lantern. Aya enters the vision and speaks through his wife, asking him to aid Hal and Kilowog, releasing him, however he runs back to the ship. Hal and Kilowog are about to be executed, but Razer, having retrieved his ring, arrives and saves them. Hal decides to leave the escapee in charge of the prison now that the jailers have been defeated, and invites Razer to join the team and make up for his past crimes by helping them, however Kilowog remains skeptical.
