This article contains predictions for the Paramount+ series Halo season 1, episode 7.

Read the season 1 review of Halo.

The episode of Halo titled “Solace” looks to join Master Chief and Makee almost at the hip. Could Makee not only be trying to trick the UNSC but also the Prophets of the Covenant? Makee seems to care more about Master Chief than we initially thought. She shares that she is the blessed one, just like Master Chief was in the series’ second episode

  • The UNSC is looking for a fall guy. Dr. Hasley admits to Master Chief what she did, and without knowing she was being recorded, protected them by telling Master Chief she was the only one who knew about the program. She loses her job duties, and Dr. Keyes took over the Spartan program, including Cortana.
  • Cortana does not have free will because Dr. Halsey programs her never to give up. However, she has her limits. For instance, there is a game of chicken. Master Chief threatens to kill Dr. Halsey by trapping her in a room that will be decontaminated. He finds out Cortana cannot override specific systems. Admittedly, this part may be confusing since in episode four, when he was going to attack Dr. Halsey, Cortana shut him down. Remember, Cortana can shut him down but not control his movements. She could not get him to open the door. (However, the writers didn’t think about stopping him when he was overriding the system in the first place). 
  • Dr. Halsey admitted to Master Chief she stole dozens of children and replaced them with clones that died from what appeared to be a seizure disorder. So, John’s parents may be still alive.
  • Kai is alive, and John informs her what Dr. Halsey did.
  • Finally, Makee and Master Chief have the same vitals after John utilizes the keystone and won’t let go. This creates a vision for John where he is on a planet mountaintop and field with Makee. A tall structure is behind her. It reaches the clouds, and we assume it keeps going. John and Makee look into each other’s eyes, and Master Chief touches her cheek.

Halo season 1, episode 7, release date/time

Season 1, episode 7 of Halo, will be released on May 5th, 2022, exclusively on Paramount+.

Where to watch online

As mentioned above, Halo season 1, episode 7, can be watched exclusively on Paramount+! The streaming platform is available with plans as low as $4.99 a month. New streaming customers can get a 7-day free trial by clicking these words.


Let’s explore what may happen next week!

  • Where did the keystone take Master Chief and Makee? This may be the place where the Covenant took the second artifact. Since Makee noted that bringing them both together will bring them peace, it stands to reason the peaceful, almost tranquil setting we saw very well could be that place.
  • What is the connection between Makee and Master Chief? The vision Master Chief had suggested a type of longing or kinship we may not have suspected before. I wrote previously that they might be separated siblings, but this screams Star Wars. There may be something even more profound at play here.
  • Will Dr. Halsey get the program back? Dr. Halsy never quits, and she will be involved, whether Dr. Keyes likes it or not.
  • Will Makee be able to take back the second keystone? What is her real endgame? She was kidnapped for a reason, and to assume she would be loyal to the Covenant may be premature. 
  • Uh, where are Soren and Kwan Ha? Soren cannot be dead, can he? We only saw Kwan Ha in a brief hallucination by Master Chief. Will we see more of her next episode? Look for a dedicated episode for her next week.

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