The local people enjoyed watching a slave auction of the people who survived from the Glassing & came into this planet.We saw ” Felix from Harvest”, who escaped from the glassing of the planet in a fuel Barge. He managed to escape with his Mother & sister but his mother got separated in Sedra planet.
Finally, we saw Soren aka ” Soren-066″ with his wife Laera , who is enjoying this program. In this auction whoever wins he will grant permission to stay in this planet & the others will sent into the space void. Felix give them information of a bounty as he acclaims that he knows the location of Doctor Halsey. He wanted to give the information in exchange for staying in this planet. Soren isn’t impressed by it & sends him away. Laera told him his founding operation of Halsey is a complete delusion by which he is misleading his team.
Soren & his team started to interrogate Felix to find Halsey. He said Halsey is in a cryochamber in a UNSC ship. They reached on the destination where they are heading towards. They arrived in a abandoned space ship to find the cryo-chamber where Halsey is. But it was a trap & Soren found nothing there but some destroyed machines. Soren found his team abandoned him & flew way also Felix arrested him too. Felix & his group arrested Soren in lots of crimes, kidnapping & extortion.
We have seen a one-to-one conversation between Ackerson & Chief. First he praised the Chief’s team. Chief said he knows the enemy’s mind & their attack plan. First, they attacked on the planet & then glassed the planet which is a little bit different from their strategies. Chief expecting something bigger & that’s why those aliens are getting training in the planets before glassing. Ackerson moving from the topics and ask Chief about his mental condition after Removing CORTANA.
Chief is feeling devastated what happened in Sanctuary but Ackerson is heading towards to know Chief’s mental stability. As because Dr. Halsey has committed lots of crimes he can’t trust Chief’s mental health. We understand things between John & Ackerson will not going to be smooth. Later Chief started to watch the TV news where Ackerson saying their plan of finishing covenant is going very smooth. He also added some false news that Master Chief & his silver team is out of fighting.
Later we also saw a new Spartan team led by Val known as the ” COBALT TEAM”. arguing with the silver team to remove the emotion inhibitors. They just started poking the Silver Team & went for a new mission.
Chief went to meet with Ackerson & warned him to send the COBALT TEAM because of the potential danger. But Ackerson ignored him & started to dig a hole in his past. First, he asked how Chief killed 30 Elites & became alive. Chief got no answers left because Ackerson not gonna appoint them to perform any next combat operations. He thinks that Chief is facing emotional ups & downs because of the removal of CORTANA.
Chief met with Margaret Parangosky who was a former head of ONI. She became an ordinary citizen but she knows more about John & Halsey. She asked what Chief saw in the Sanctuary, but chief hid it. But she added that Ackerson isn’t interested in controversy so Chief must avoid any type of controversies. She wants the evidence of the change of Covenants activity & gives them a button to press whenever he gets any information. Margaret believes on Chief.
Chief went to the AI prostitution service. He got an AI which is very similar to Cortana. He is expressed that something wrong his happened with him & that’s why he is missing something. Chief realise that the unknown figure that he saw in the Sanctuary Planet was no one but Makee herself. Then he got the voices of Makee flashing in his head. On the other side, the team of Soren informed his wife & son that Soren is died. An emotional breakthrough alerting about the upcoming war. On the other side, we finally saw Kwan with Soren’s son Kessler.
In the ending, we see a glimpse of a distant Planet. Where the big shops of Covenant rise from the ground and come out from the clouds & the Sangheili leaders watch the whole scene. Things are getting interesting. We finally get to see all of our old characters. let’s head towards the next episode to know what surprise is waiting for us.
