The next-to-last episode of Master Chief’s adventures had every main character choosing sides as they get ready to pick a fight against the Covenant. War is nigh! For one part, USNC heavily relies on Master Chief and his link to Makee, but they’re not up to date with the refugee drama that ensues. Here’s Halo Episode 9 Release Date & Recap.
Makee and Master Chief are both disturbed by their shared mental image of the Halo ring, as Master Chief leads Makee throughout Reach, still surreptitiously observed by Halsey via Cortana. This brief excursion is cut short when the UN Security Council learns that the Covenant has utterly destroyed a frontier settlement on another planet.
Halo Episode 8 Recap: “Allegiance”
After completely embracing the effects of the Madrigal artifact, John begins to socialize with Makee and sees her as a potential ally based on their shared visions of the Halo. Despite the UNSC’s continued doubts, who see her as a possible enemy indoctrinated in Covenant beliefs due to years spent in their custody.
John learns from her that the Covenant is after the Halo rings because they believe that activating them will take them on a “Great Journey” to godhood. Following a Covenant attack on another planet, John can persuade the UN Security Council to allow Makee to test the artifact, albeit under Miranda’s supervision. Without his emotional suppressor, John has sex with Makee, who regards him with affinity and trust; observing John’s generosity and likeness, she begins to doubt her loyalty.
Halsey Connects With Cortana
Meanwhile, Halsey learns about John’s connection through Cortana and regains remote access to the UNSC network using Miranda’s previously stolen retina scan. Halsey is convinced that she should be the only one with access to John, Makee. The artifact initiates remote protocols that disable all communications within the UNSC base and places Spartans Riz and Vannak under her direct control to gain custody of all three targets; Cortana chooses to warn and assist John at the last second.
Riz and Vannak restrain Kai and attempt to fight John (though Kai breaks free and fights John). Makee tries to help John before Miranda exposes her as the assailant on the lost UNSC corvette via the cleaned transmissions. When the UNSC restrained and tortured Makee (bringing back memories of her youth), she reaffirms her loyalty to the Covenant, frees herself, and touches the artifact, sending shockwaves throughout the UNSC base, before saying her goodbye.
Unanswered Questions: Who Is Makee Playing For?
When Halsey realizes that Makee will not aid her voluntarily, she deploys the Zed Protocol, which opens a backchannel to the Spartans while cutting off all other connections. It allows her to talk to them exclusively, and Halsey tells Kai, Vannak, and Riz to find Master Chief, Makee, and the artifact and bring it to Halsey.
When Kai complains about not having the emotion-suppressing pellet, Halsey cuts her off and instructs Vannak and Riz to neutralize Kai and proceed on with the mission on their own. When Halsey tells Cortana that she’ll soon be able to manage Master Chief, which is her desire fully, Cortana hesitates while claiming that she’s not sentimental.
Master Chief shows up to take Makee to the test. Miranda begins to deduce that the voice in the Covenant tape is Makee’s, implying that she is a forger. Miranda flees, unable to contact anyone, in order to reach the testing site in time and prevent Makee from approaching the artifact. Riz and Vannak have created a trap for Master Chief and Makee.
Halsey informs Cortana that he will be dropping Master Chief and taking control of his physical processes. Cortana betrays Halsey and advises Master Chief not to fall into the trap laid for him. Cortana then cuts the link between Halsey and the UNSC and vanishes to assist Master Chief. While he deals with Riz and Vannak, Master Chief tells Makee to find a Marine and hurry to Parangosky.
