  1. What I found interesting but minor in Ep. #6 is that MC touches Makee's face during the Halo vision. That may not be a big deal but it establishes that human touch between them and could make a difference of sorts. Hoping she'll become the future Covenant Arbiter. We'll see. But ya just gotta think the Flood is going to crash this party sooner or later. Also, 343 Guilty Spark…. That'll be fun to see. 2 episodes left. Oh , well guess I'll have to wait for them next season…

  2. Halo try-hard fans need to accept this is a whole new thing, this show is not trying to please you, instead is building it's own personality and it's becoming such an amazing and beautiful syfy show. I'm all in!

  3. also wanted to point out at lab 7 there is 1-117 apha, showing that cheif is the preditor now, not the pray to be toyed with.

  4. The UNSC Glamorgan is in core cannon. It's a corvette that appears in Halo: Glasslands.

  5. Thanks again for detailed references to core canon and not being overly biased, really helpful for someone with zero bg knowledge.
    I would’ve liked seeing John being stronger and more Spartan appearances too!
    I wonder if season 1 will go anywhere significant storyline wise for so few episodes… I really want more Spartan fight scenes🔥

  6. thought this was the best overall episode yet. Probably because the boring side plot wasn't in it, so next weeks episode will most likely be all about that. 🙁

  7. Notice they haven't mentioned ONI once? They've mentioned Section 3, and threatened to shut it down (as if that could ever happen). But no mention of the ultra-powerful intelligence organization that could arguably be called one of Halo's greatest antagonists.

    And on that door, there was a great big, red "117" in the top-right corner.

  8. I really hope next episode isn't boring with the whole Kwan storyline

  9. Makee mentions "there will be peace" and all i could think of was The Domain. Hoping we get Flood before The Domain plot though

  10. oh I was waiting for your review. I love the character building. although other than the Spartans my heart really goes out to Miranda Keyes.
    she now knows that both her parents are terrible human beings. complicit and kidnapping children experimenting on them. this episode felt very Game of Thrones to me because you had so many different factions backstabbing each other LOL. you had the council trying to throw the Admiral under the bus the Admiral and Captain Keyes through doctor Halsey under the bus. I may not have lost as much respect for those characters if they did it to preserve something they believe in but they were just saving their own asses. I'm glad Kai is going to be okay. this is probably my only criticism I really wish they would give Riz and Vannaka some character development and something to do. they've largely just been background. the MP who was guarding McKee's cell almost got as many lies has Riz and Vannak did this episode they are Spartans. but other than that I really love this episode

  11. Great ep, as always! A few thoughts: 1) Silver timeline Spartans definitely have at least some history suppressing human rebellion b/c John's team killed Kwan's mother and associates. 2) Biblically, 3:16 is… John 3:16. The sacrifice referenced may be drawing a parallel between Makee and John specifically, between her and the Spartan children, etc. She's in such a high death risk structural position in this story, but I'm curious to see if they'll go that route with an actress so phenomenal at representing the Covenant via someone who isn't animatronic + CGI. If she dies, they can't reasonably get that back and preserve Blessed One rarity. 3) Re: Cortana, we do know she's restricted in one specific sense, which is that Halsey limited her control of John until the relic matter was resolved. As designed & administered, we were told she could completely overwrite/supplant his consciousness. But with the rapid cortical plasticity brought on by the relic interactions, who knows if that's still the case. 4) When John hits the wall, even though there doesn't appear to be damage, there is a crushing sound indicating the superhuman force. It was a classic "siege damage" sort of sound, but I assumed visual damage was nixed for being inadvertently humorous or undesirably giving the impression the cell wasn't reinforced enough to contain enhanced persons, which might be important if Makee has Prelate-like enhancements beyond her nail dagger.

  12. This show needs to be taken off the air. They need good writers.

  13. The show is great i realy enjoy it but it bothers me a bit that they made chaercters diffrent to fit a role rather making a chaercter for that role and the first combat scene were gerneral has minigun does no damage to the elites but wenn chief pick it up it does damage it can be because the elite hasent any shields anymore but in the game they recharge but i cant realy say

  14. What is the title of the song that played during the scene of them being on HALO and then played during the credits?

  15. This certainly felt like the best "made" episode.

  16. I'm actually starting to love the show: The line from Fall of Reach, about one lie at any point in the Spartan Program turning the spartans against the UNSC was always such a powerful moment. It was how you knew, despite all of Halsey's evil, it was for the greater good. It was something the Spartans could and did believe in.

    Showing the cost of the lies is already a very interesting premise and I am loving it.

    I'd cut the first few episodes, though. Or condense them into 1 episode.

  17. Makee knows she is on the clock due to Miranda cleaning up a transmission from the UNSC Corvette. A transmission sent after the attack killed everyone….

  18. I had a good chuckle when they were talking about the Spartan laser

  19. Reach is def being glassed at the end of this season lol

  20. I’m happy that I wasn’t the only one who recognized the BB reference.

    Also I know this is a stretch and maybe too early to call but think that the scene when John and Makee are on the ring, was probably them entering The Domain. I also think that after seeing John and Makee on the ring, The moment they had was definitely a bit intimate. Makee may have the Geas of the Librarian. I wouldn’t be upset if that is the case depending on how it plays out.

  21. I would like to end masterchief and dr halsey quarrel about masterchief past. The bg story of masterchief is a common trope in films and tv series. So the plot should focus on more war related and keystone related.

  22. This episode is a great 8/10 , I really like a lot that has happened in this episode , I like the dynamic between chief and halsey , I still like Kai's character , I like that the unsc didn't wave off makee and actually suspected her for being with the covenant , I love that they r actually doing something with halsey and miranda , unlike main canon , speaking of Miranda , I really like her character in this show , but the reveal of halo feels pretty underwhelming imo , but overall a great episode , but if they do a chief and makee romance in dropping my personal rating for the entire show for a 7/10 to a fking 2/10

  23. I love your breakdowns and easter eggs, I also love the small bits of information you put from various core canon! I wished they used the Halo theme when John and Makee saw the Halo ring, and I hoped it's installation 04. Also, I didn't know about the bible reference so that is quite interesting! Halsey manipulating her daughter was quite horrible, but I do hope she still has a shred of humanity over her desire to do good no matter the cost. Also, why can't the creators of the show reveal the halo ring in the SEVENTH episode?!

  24. loved the episode. everything that was prior to this finally paid off. hopefully the madrigal storyline wraps up as i see no hope for that planet anymore but nonethless love the direction of this season. also, do you think since noble team exists cause their symbol was shown or any other spartans exist and we just haven't seen them yet?

  25. Would have loved to hear the theme when he was on the halo

  26. At 15:18 the item you aren’t sure of – isn’t that a repulsor also from infinite? That’s kinda what it looks like to me anyway

  27. Spartans are strong, but we don't know what that wall is supposed to be made out of and we don't know if he hit it at full strength since he was basically in the process of collapsing. He also sort of… palms it, instead of punching it lol.

    I also picked up on that split second where Cortana looked kinda shocked by Halsey when she declines to let her stop John. I suspect maybe that'll be the seed for Cortana becoming John's AI instead of Halsey's leash.

  28. B-159SybrZaku - The 2nd Halo Airsofting spartan says:


  29. Honestly the h7 on the door kinda looks like 117 with the way the H is

  30. I love Troy Denning! I live in the same Rocky Mountain Village where he grew up, I’m far more familiar with his Star Wars content but my favorite thing about his writing is that once in a blue moon some of his locations feel rather similar to this area, I don’t know if it’s on purpose write what you know I guess, but I love it none the less. Anyway thank you for your wonderful open minded reviews / Easter eggs. I’m horrible at first person shooters despite trying several times to get into the franchise this is the first true gateway I’ve had (even if it’s a different timeline) and you are doing a wonderful job of filling in my gaps, I’m curious what your opinion would be as far as where to start on the books if I’m having a good time with this. Thank you again for such lovely videos, I’m looking forward to next week.

  31. Really hope we get Fall of Reach for the last two episodes or so.

  32. I must mention Dr Halsey being forced to sit down to be interviewed kind of mirrors Halo 4's Dr Halsey's interview

  33. I do wonder if the chief and makee have gene songs but I could be wrong

  34. I'm starting to see a resemblance between dr. Halsey & Wernher von Braun they are both sociopaths,

  35. Am I the only one that just isn’t interested in Kwan? I watch a Halo show to see Spartans do Spartan stuff not some girl who wants to start a revolution in the middle of a war with genocidal aliens.

  36. @halo cannon FYI It's says ONI on the chair when miranda gets off it during halseys chat with MC

  37. If atriox is in fact that brute chief, then they really going to have to explain why humanity hasn't been eradicated yet. Since in cannon, it was artriox rebellion that was keeping the covenant from being able to use their full force on humanity, with the elites finally rebelling being it's death nail. Not to mention the flood infestation on their command center.

  38. You also miss the fact cortana can take control of chief, she chooses not to, hence she says sorry to halsy.

  39. Surprised it’s confirmed to be Atriox and not Tartarus

  40. They probably won't go into it anymore, but I wonder if they'll try and remove Makees finger energy sword? And I wonder if she'll actually start to become an Aly now thay she starting to see visions with MC on a Halo and possibly learn what all the Covenant have done.
    Also after seeing this episode, I'm starting to wonder if MC was that boy when they came after Makee? because didn't the UNSC show up to that planet after the Covenant took Makee?

  41. Good recap so far! I'm honestly not excited for what looks like an episode mostly dedicated to Kwan's hopeless efforts to overthrow some petty, UNSC-backed dictator on a backwater colony which no longer seems to hold any significance to the main story with the Keystone gone, except to be one of the first colonies to be glassed. Her character needs a quick turn around. She's been utterly unlikable and hateful since episode 1, and I just want to see Soren reunited with Chief and Silver Team, fighting the Covenant, and Kwan either canned (unlikely) or redeemed (hoping against hope…). If I come across as cynical, it's because I am. The direction has been dreadful on this show until episodes 5 and 6 finally made real progress, and it's going to take more than subtle, probably inconsequential in the end, references to core canon for me to be engaged in the story.

  42. I love how they have tossed a few things from the games, like when John shoots the battle rifle during the fight saving Kai the reticle can be seen during first person mode and appears just the same as the game. In this particular episode (6) the map that was shown almost seems to imitate the infinite campaign open world map. Little touches and they are so amazing to see

  43. I've never seen any interaction at all between Parangosky and MC in the core canon.

  44. 19:25 idk about you but there should still be a lot of spartan 2s running around and even Spartan 3s…. especially since its very close to the Fall of Reach which it seems like we are going to just skip over and go right to Halo without Reach falling or just cut to black with text explaining that Reach fell.
