This article contains predictions for the Paramount+ series Halo season 1, episode 5.

Read the Season 1 review of Halo.

Episode four of Halo, “Homecoming,” opens with an origin story of none other than Master Chief. The team travels back to his home planet of Eridanus II. Along with Dr. Halsey, Cortana, and Adun, they found Master Chief’s old drawings box buried in front of his home. We also find Soren and Kwan land on Madrigal, and the rebellion is effectively killed off. Finally, Dr. Keyes and Kai start to build a foundation of friendship after the Spartan rips out the pellet, just like Master Chief did.

  • Before Kwan’s Aunt Soojin was killed by Vinisher’s assassin, Franco, she mentioned how Kwan’s father visited a desert group called the Mystics. She said he came back a changed man, spending all their money on the rebellion, which would reveal their true destiny. What could they have told him?
  • Master Chief has begun to mix his emotions with memories and saw Dr. Halsey in a vision at his home. But, this was while he was living with his parents, not at the orphanage. Dr. Halsey tells him he is muddling memories because of his childhood trauma. Is she lying to him?
  • Kai can finally experience emotions, forming a “sisterly” bond with Dr. Keyes. Where will her loyalties lay in the coming weeks? Kai helped Dr. Keyes translate Makee’s message from the Emergence episode. Why is Halo so important to the Covenant?
  • Master Chief led Dr. Halsey to the second object, standing straight up in a cavern, looking up through a crack in the ground to the sky. What will the second object do? Or, perhaps more importantly, what will Master Chief experience when he touches it?

Halo season 1, episode 5, release date/time

Season 1, Episode 5, of Halo will be released on April 14, 2022, exclusively on Paramount+.

Let’s explore what may happen next week!

  • We feel that Kwan will reroute Soren-066 to find the Mystics instead of grabbing a ship back to the rubble. Look for Kwan and Soren to find out Kwan’s father’s true intentions next week.
  • The original artifact unlocked memories and some mild emotions for Master Chief when he touched it. What will happen with the second artifact? While the first object helped him remember his past, I wonder if the second will help guide his future.
  • Kai is experiencing emotions but is unsupervised by Dr. Halsey, and Dr. Keyes is not equipped to handle her if something goes wrong. Could Kai endanger the entire UNSC operation and contact Makee? I am leaning towards yes.
  • Finally, Makee could be thinking this is her “Great Journey,” and the Halo’s “divine winds” will take her to “godhood” when she locates the artifacts.

You can watch this series with a subscription to the streaming service.
