‘Halo’ Episode 5 recap: A battle with the Covenant

Halo Episode 5 wasn’t as plot-heavy as previous episodes, but it did have plenty of action. After locating the second Covenant artifact in episode 4, Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber) and Dr. Halsey (Natascha McElhone) called in the Spartans to remove it from the planet Eridanus II. However, their mission was interrupted by a Covenant invasion. Jacob Keyes (Danny Sapani), Miranda Keyes (Olive Gray), and Kai (Kate Kennedy) were all compromised in the fight.

Master Chief successfully took down most of the Covenant’s soldiers. However, the remaining aliens escaped with the second artifact when Chief ran off to save Kai from danger. The Covenant ship also left behind Makee (Charlie Murphy), their human Blessed One, so she could infiltrate the UNSC’s base.

Elsewhere in the episode, viewers caught a glimpse at another flashback to Master Chief’s childhood. This one showed the first time Halsey saw him as a child. In the present day, Chief also confronted Kai about removing her emotional suppressant pellet and questioned her ability to fight. Over on the planet Madrigal, Soren (Bokeem Woodbine) handcuffed Kwan (Yerin Ha) to his motorcycle to keep her out of trouble, but she escaped.
