I won't disagree with that as it's a perfectly viable proposal and Geoff Johns did leave deliberate reason to question those years events with his "You'd Be Amazed at the Constructs Parallax is capable of. I Tortured Hal Jordan with Many of them." line from Sinestro.
For all of its additions to the mythos and its entertaining aspect Owsley & Bright's Green Lantern run failed to have a legacy and there was nothing in it that was picked up by any subsequent writer for revisiting, so your proposal that much of its later action and event was a Parallax influenced experience makes sense in retrospective terms. Indeed the notion that Hal left Malvolio's dimension with his Ring, as fascinating as that is, can be brushed aside as a Sinestro/Parallax implant.

Johns did a terrific job in using established continuity to help explain Emerald Twilight's events and why it was Hal's character had deteriorated so steeply in the previous years, Dense as it is that series is still a strong read in its own right. \(yes\)

Yeah, Johns did do a great job, especially since there really wasn't an "out" or an escape valve as it were for the story except the "malvolio's ring".

Once Hal joined with the Spectre I saw that as step one to Hal's return as GL. Also I bet that when he dealt with Sinestro and Abin's ghost as Spectre that was also a Parallax mind attack.

The action comics weekly run really to me felt like filler stories as they didn't know what to do with Hal after the Corps was disbanded.

GL quarterly 1 was cool to see John reactivated and dealing with apartheid.

GL Quaterly 2 though with the fake OA, Fake Guardian/Zamaron and Hal not realizing it was all an illusion has to be a Parallax attack, there is just no other way to explain it.

Also when Priest used his own abilities to counter Hal's ring attacks, Priest had a yellow aura.

When Priest's body was found by John, I can't be sure as I don't have the issue on hand to check the art but I think Priests blood may have been same as the blood from the Sinestro that was killed.

However I think Priest was revived as a Black Lantern during Blackest Night, so he may not ahve been a Parallax construct so much as an avatar.
