Here is my best explanation:

'comeback' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'reformed persons finally make' is the subsidiary indication.

'reformed' indicates an anagram.

'finally' says to take the final letters.

The final letter of 'make' is 'e'.

'persons' is an anagram of 'respons'.

'respons'+'e'='response'
