    It was an improvement over the last episode. Just going to leave it at that.

    He didn't deactivate the Watchtower cameras, IIRC, so I doubt he got to the ring.

    Also, how did no one notice all those Reach ships that were blown up last episode?

    Probably because each military was focusing on launching as many defensive missiles as possible and were not focusing on what was taking out other missiles.

    They probably imposed an information blackout when they launched the fleet.

    The rings aren't computers like they are in the comics. They just seem to be weapons capable of energy projection and construct creation.

    You mean the same military who was watching the skies for attacks, would miss an entire fleet of ships that popped up outta nowhere?

    Really loved this episode. Been waiting for it ever since The Fix. Had to buy it on iTunes this morning. So many highlights. But I get the feeling, if there ever was to be a Season 3, Nightwing would have donned the cowl. He went from not wanting to be the Batman in Season 1 to showing Batman-like tendencies (detective skills mixed with the perfect scowling in this episode) in Season 2.

    Considering that the same space fleet was able to bypass Earth's militaries and the Justice League to hide in the ocean without them knowing, I think its reasonable that they could lunch an attack without them knowing as well. There was a lot of chaos going on up there, with Nukes being lit up like it was New Year's day. The Reach's stealth and cloak technology is probably far beyond anything Earth has ever seen and there's also the fact that it took the entire GLC to halt, not break up, the Reach's empire from expanding.

    Was very pleasantly surprised by this ep. I was certain that Nightwing would be hoodwinked. I WAS expecting Artemis to prove herself through a kick, but I thought it would be against Jade. I almost think that Connor might actually get a crowning moment of awesome at Reach HQ, but that's crazy talk; he's the designated punching bag for the show. Want to see Artemis introduced to Lian.

    The difference is that the ships, and the military's attention, would all be focused on a very narrow area during a relatively short period of time. That's nothing like sneaking onto earth over a period of years.

    Even if they couldn't see the Reach ships, they would still notice that missiles that were missed by them and the League were somehow being destroyed. And even if they didn't see the ships at the time, the military (and by that I mean every single one in the world) would be reviewing the data afterwards.

    They still manage to assemble a huge fleet without even the Justice League, whose HQ is in outer space, having a clue it was there. Not to mention their fleet was in the ocean, whose King of the seas again.

    I wouldn't put it pass the Reach to have stealth weapons, I mean if their ships can be cloak, why not their weapons. Even if the militaries reviewed their data afterwards, its been established that the Reach's tech is far beyond anything on Earth, so it would matter on the size of the area the Reach's ships were fighting in, or that they were being watched, it has been clearly shown that Earth can not overcome their stealth and cloak technology. Hell, they were able to use a pocket size gadget to take down Despero force field around the Hall of Justice in seconds, while the Justice League couldn't even put a dent in it.

    What makes you think he didn't deactivate the cameras? There was never any footage from the Watchtower on display in the show, so he may well have deactivated the cameras. In fact, I'd be surprised if he (or more likely, Red Arrow acting under his orders) didn't, if only to prevent Batman (who wasn't at the celebration in the main chamber when Roy started Starro-ing everybody) from noticing what was going on if he happened to look at the monitors. But even if he didn't, it doesn't preclude him from preventing Stewart from recording what happened on Rimbor with his ring. They're two separate and distinct acts.

    What kind of safeguard could they put in place? The ring is programmed to obey it's assigned wearer, and even under Savage's control, John Stewart was still the ring's owner. The ring doesn't have the power to autonomous;y detect mind control.

    The League voluntarily surrendered themselves to the Rimbor authorities for a lawful trial. If the Lantern Corps did anything to interfere with that, they'd be in violation of Rimbor's laws and, at the end of the day, GLs are essentially cops.
