Started where it ended. A massive destruction is going on. Chief after coming out from trauma realise that Vannak is died. On the other Soren & Riz fought with Sangheili warriors. The situation is out of control. So, they decided to move from there. John noticed Halsey who was staring at the sky & saying ” It’s not over”. We see that more ships are reaching on the Reach. After some minutes of action suddenly the attacks from the aliens got stopped. Then they heard a blast sound & a Jiralhanae (Brute) appeared with a hammer. That’s a hard challenge for everyone. Riz, Soren tried a lot to kill that brute.

Hard time ended soon because Laera the wife of Soren reached there to rescue them. Before More Jackals comes. Halsey, John, & Soren leave that place. Riz after watching the dead body of Vannak also went to give her everything into this. So, she went & picked up the dead body of Vannak. But couldn’t make it & got killed by the aliens. John saw in front of his eyes the aliens were glassing his planet. After this scene, we saw John’s eyes faint & then darkness.

Then, We back to the exact scenes that we saw in the first episode. Doctors are taking care of John & Cortana saying “We’re losing him”. We also see Margaret Parangosky talking with Halsey. Cortana asks her ” Will you help him”? & Margaret replied, ” That depends, what are you prepared to do for me?”

Now, again jump back into the present sequence. We see Makee crying after watching the destruction of Reach. After that she talked with the Sangheili boss about this great victory. The boss said it’s not a victory because they secured only of the Stolen Keystones & The Blessed One had denied him. He is also not happy because Makee saves John every time. Later She handed over the Cortana vessel to the Boss & mentioned that it contains ” Human Knowledge”. The boss asks Makee that is that vessel knows about the location of other Keystones. Makee said she would try to look into it. Makee tried to contact Cortana.

She is happy after reaching in the ship. Makee said this is the command vessel of the esteemed Zealot Var’Gatanai. Makee asked what are you & Cortana said that she is a most advanced Artificial Intelligence but for Master Chief, she was just a companion. CORTANA said how he remembers her . John wakes up into a chamber & found that Riz also there. He went to watch Riz’s current situation & found that Halsey is there too. Riz needs surgery but the tools are not present into this ship. John thinks that Riz wants to prove herself in front of him that’s why she went to take Vannak. But, Halsey thinks it’s a SPARTAN’s duty to save other one. Chief denied this as Vannak already died at that moment. He started to argue with Halsey about how she made Spartans.

They haven’t any information about Kai right now as the city is scattered. John asks her that they need to go back to the Reach again. But his condition is too bad. He just always admiring that he told Ackerson about it but he didn’t cared at all. He thinks that if he had that armour he could probably save everyone. Lastly, Halsey mentioned Reach is just a plan & they must be careful next time.

Next time John woke up & found Kwan & Soren next to him. He also met with Laera too. They are now heading towards to Aleria & they will be reached in Orbital in just a few hours. John also saw the dead body of Vannak & afraid to watch his body again. They reached into Aleria & tried to do a checkup of Riz as soon as possible. On the other side, Soren & Laera went to find out Kessler & John stayed there near Riz.

Soren gives bribe to a local man & orders him to find out their son Kessler who is ten years old & wears a helmet, he was on a transport ship that landed here a couple of days ago at the name of Bodegraven. They finally find him & think that he is a Kessler. Soren & Laera travel to the place to find their son. Laera told him about the situation of Rubel after he left.

Kwan brings a jacket for John & a shovel to bury Vannak. John replied they don’t do this to the SPARTANs they just give Farewell. Kwan understood that it’s important to burry a dead body otherwise it will hunt done. After John denied Kwan left alone to burry him. We saw John sitting there & watching a pigeon on the sky .

Finally, we see Riz open her eyes she is now out of danger. She met with Halsey and said when she was 14 she woke up after the augmentation & looked at Halsey exactly the same way just like now. Halsey said to Riz that she did everything to save them but the damage is significant & they are not the exact soilder how they used to be as she already diminished. Now, Riz must do hard work to become more powerful. Later at night Halsey talked John about Riz’s condition that damages are accumulated she won’t be the same fighter she needs to work Hard. Halsey said whatever happened in the Reach it was political & John replied that Margaret was behind of this.
