With “Transcendence”, the ninth and final episode of Hello The first season of the show, much is uncertain. This show was a gigantic experience to take a batch of ‘noodle’ from Hello games, books, comics and other related media and turning that into an on-screen adaptation firmly rooted in the fantasy/sci-fi television tradition of prestige that arguably reached critical mass with game of thrones. And with season one now over, I think the show has largely succeeded despite some poor executions of totally entertaining and engaging plot developments, most of which fit in with the undeniable storylines. Hello He’s been saying since 2001.

The problem, of course, is that what makes HelloHello“It is confused with the hotly contested. Let’s be honest, Hello He started out as a fairly straightforward shooter steeped in the traditions of martial sciences like Spaceship Soldiers And alien, among other things. The story, at least in the original trilogy, was a tale from its post-9/11 era of a military-industrial complex tasked with defending “humanity” against religious fanatics.

After Bungie’s departure in early 2010, the series embraced greater ambitions and tried to take itself more seriously. I think this show is the culmination of that effort and is, when it wants to be, one of the series’ best attempts to bring a wider scope to storytelling. Disagreement over when Hello It lost what made it “unique” more discussed in community spaces than the originality of Metallica albums after 1991, so any conversation about that show, books, or games since then Halo 4 It is a fruitless exercise in arguing against nostalgia and precisely curated groups of opinions. And I’m not immune to that either.

All that said, this show seems to be invested in adapting themes from the other Hello Media to an interesting remake while keeping the myths on track…albeit the whole thing feels like it might be teetering on the brink of collapse.

If nothing else, “transcendence” proved two things. First, that a file Hello The show is, aside from inheritance, just plain old, fun TV science fiction. sometimes get awkward, other times he sings — I mean, the show that talks about restoring one’s identity through altered hormone regulation, while bonding through family that’s over a history of childhood trauma, would of course make me feel, like, a trans woman in a certain way. With all the talk about humanity being central to this show, I think the season finale makes it undeniable: This is a story about Persons.

While his depiction of a military-industrial complex still requires a deeper conversation, it’s clear that these characters need each other as they struggle to hold on to their humanity by coming together in the face of an upsetting situation. As such, I am really glad that Spartans did not die here, and that the explosive conflict in the last episode between them did not lead to each other being killed.

Although Jon is the champion of the “chosen one” style, he still needs to rely on others, be it Cortana or other Spartans. He may be the hero, but we feel better who the hero is to in this episode. I think keeping these characters alive has allowed the collective heroism these characters share to take center stage. Nevertheless, the show proved why they needed to take off their helmets so often: their past and present situations demand and dictate the helmet, the suit and the role of the soldier, but these are, one might say, heroic. Struggling against this request. It remains to be seen if they will survive and be able to secure a future where they don’t need armor, figuratively at least.

As for the larger display movements in Hello Mythos, the events are very interesting, and I want to say with caution, promising. While I enjoyed most of this season, I also found myself saying out loud, “When are they coming to the damn Halo episode?” “When will Reach be glazed?” “Why can’t Quan’s screen time make the most of the interesting plot elements around her?”

I actually think the slow revelation of secrets might be for the better.

The season’s sluggish feeding on a set of disturbing “essential” artifacts – which always seem to be able to de-escalate out-of-control events in a very narratively convenient way – was exhausting Butif it’s a story Hello It is one of the revelations of some of the deepest mysteries of our universe, perhaps fitting that fleshly knowledge is so well hidden. The deepest secrets of the universe are revealed very quickly, and this makes people in this world seem somewhat stupid for not finding out sooner. Stop them too often and you’ll end up producing JJ Abrams. I think this season’s finale mostly strikes that balance, and it earned us time with these characters. But it is clearly worn out. the second season Need To kick him a few notches and get to the damned chorus.

Now, did Macy have needed to die for it? I guess the story will wrestle with that for a while, and it’s likely to become a bit like it Halo 4/5Cortana for Chief Edition. Do we need another novel with a large, burly white man upset with the death of a woman? of course no. But this can serve as a good enough counterpoint to Jon’s inner sense of himself as a hero; Let’s just hope you don’t turn it into a copy of Final Fantasy VII: Coming of the Children“Cloud Clash” and seeing it adjust to another set of episodes.

This is assuming John is still with us.

John’s fate is seriously uncertain. Without two close readings of what was said and what happened by the end of the last episode, it’s hard to say where Jon is. I’m not quite sure if it’s Cortana Act take over? Is he just upset about shooting his girlfriend? I don’t know! However, it is objectively appropriate to see Jon fade behind the helmet of the main boss, becoming the reckless soldier the story (and most fans…) want or need. While many viewers weren’t happy that the show contains a lot of scenes that aren’t appropriately dressed, we at least got to watch World Health Organization He’s probably lost now, rather than the plot that just tells us his humanity is in jeopardy, which games and books mostly rest on.

“Wake Up John” was a major theme of Halo 4His marketing and his story, the hero fades into slumber and is summoned when needed. The first game begins with this theme, and that’s how the original trilogy ended. Hello It was, in its larger context, about cycles of civilization and conflict throughout history, with heroes playing pivotal roles rising and falling through the ages. Who they are, where they are, and “when” they are often makes the difference, and that the show plays with this, I think, is what makes it real. Hello Adaptation and not just gaming style that is set to a different tune.

However, this season has struggled to reconcile the many plot threads, one of which ended with a shot via Makee. Between the Keyes family drama, Ha family secrets, Soren, Kathryn Halsey bullshit and all things elaborate, there’s so much on the table that I’m not sure the show could give it all the care it deserves, as seen with Kwan’s scenes that are little more than a repeat. The same lines over and over and you get mad at everyone. It almost felt as if the same character was breaking the fourth wall and was demanding a step and better writing. We are bound to see some of these current stories fade away or take strange turns, as we did, for example, in Battlestar Galactica And margin.

Now that the location of the Halo episodes has been revealed (I think?) it will be interesting to see where Season 2 takes this source material and these narratives. I think the most interesting aspect of the experience is Hello The show, at least for me, is that I’ve come to enjoy enough through this nine-episode collection to want to know where they go with it. The actors are well suited and the show adapts to the themes well enough to coordinate. It is just a matter of whether she can access the story of the biggest legend in any satisfactory way. And from the perspective of things, the answer to this question may be further than we wish.
