halo Season 1 Episode 9 Recap – Ending and Ending Explained

The season finale features the Master Chief waking up from a slumber, his face looking bruised, bruised and bloody. (When will the Master Chief learn not to take off his helmet?). He started rolling over and shaking his head to get rid of the cobwebs.

When the Master Chief learns from Dr. Miranda Keyes that she has taken the artifact and begins to hunt her down, Wannack points a gun at him and John tries to explain Halsey’s time when the Spartans were children kidnapped them. It was only when Captain Keyes admitted his involvement in Dr. Halsey’s experiments that he let him go. Three Spartans hunt down Makee who is heading for her Covenant ship. Kay pursues Dr. Halsey.

Arden, the tearful dwarf who carried the torch for Halsey’s boss, tried to take Kai from behind with a large metal object. Kai attacks, grabbing his shirt, and Adoum watches his boss leave him and dashes for the escape pod. Kay threw him head down to the ceiling, instantly breaking his neck. What can you say? Love hurts. Halsey escaped, and the boat was racing toward the ground.

Meanwhile, the three Spartans chasing Makee are Vannak, Riz, and the Master Chief (did they really run without helmets?). Unfortunately, Makee escaped with her boat. As they ran to the tarmac, they saw Halsey’s boat hit the ground with Kay inside. Shocked but quickly relieved, Kay abandoned the boat and they saw her climb the runway.

But where did Makee take the artifact? According to the Master Chief, Aspero is the most likely planet. Why? Because this area has light from the system, it makes the shape of the Earth look like shards of glass. Just like Makee told him. That’s where Halo is, and that’s where Makee is going.

When Makee arrives at her party, she shows the nobles two cornerstones, but no devil’s head. They will now continue their great journey. Makee asks if she can accompany them. She can, if that’s what she wants, someone asks. She gave them one of the “of course” lines, but she fingered where the weapon used to be, and she ripped it off in the final episode.

However, the nobles of the Covenant embrace the blessed only for Markey’s benefit. Once they set out on their great journey, they set her on fire, just like any other human being.

Halsey survived the escape hatch, but was caught by UNSC security. Miranda Keys walks into her interrogation room with so much hateful history. Miranda called her mother before she left to tell her the news—she had received Section 72. We think that means the death penalty. Later, Halsey had a seizure and began bleeding from both nostrils. Miranda knew exactly what was going on. It’s a clone, and Dr. Halsey escaped.

The Spartans came to retrieve their cornerstone. Nonetheless, the Master Chief and Makee felt each other immediately when they approached the Covenant as they completed the ritual of putting the artifact together. John became dizzy. He began to stumble from his hiding place, and a Covenant lookout saw him from below. They are now under threat, but Riz takes out the enemy shooter. However, the Sangheili warriors hiding out of sight are now being warned.

In an impressive sequence of battles where hundreds of Sangheili warriors boarded the silver ranks, Riz took over as leader and was immediately damaged. The Master Chief came to her aides and battled the five warriors, while Wannack and Kay provided cover fire for the waves of enemies rushing towards their position. Soon after killing several soldiers, the Master Chief was pinned to the ground and shot several times in the head. (This time, the man finally puts on the helmet). That’s when Makee sees that her lover is finished. She touched the cornerstone, activating a wave of the sun that hurled hundreds of Sangheili warriors from the top of the mountain, to the death below.

Immediately, Makee and the Master Chief are teleported back to the peaceful planet they connected to. She told him they should get out of their lives and stay. The Master Chief told her she needed to let go. Both then realized that blood had started seeping into her clothes and breasts. She fell to the ground. When Makee released the artifact, the Master Chief returned to the fight and recovered from his trance. He saw Kay pointing a gun at Mark. She shot her. Why? Return the Master Chief to the battlefield.

But there are too many of them. A fighter attaches a timed grenade to Riz, and when Kai tries to help her, the grenade detonates, knocking them both down. Vannak has fallen and was shot while complaining to Kai that she needs to wake up their boss. With only the Master Chief left, and with no way to get the Artifact and his team off the planet at the same time, he allowed himself to be sacrificed so Cortana could take over his body. The last words he said to her were: “Find the halo and win the war.” This is also bad news for the nobles, as they need the Blessers and Demons to activate the cornerstone.

Cortana took out several enemy combatants, but the leader and whoever took out John was tricky. So she launched their ship to sideways ab***h’s son. Before we go on, can’t Cortana do that on her own because she controls those types of things? Either way, this will weaken the Covenant’s plans. The ship provided enough recovery fire so Cortana could control the Master Chief’s body to grab the artifact (to Kai’s shock) onto the ship, and they fled.


The season ends with Dr. Halsey enjoying her freedom as a fugitive on an unknown planet. Finally, when the Master Chief flew the ship home, Kay sat next to him and asked if everything was okay. The Master Chief said nothing (not since Cortana took over his body). He looked at her, then at the screen with the helmet on.
