It would seem HALO The Series is continuing to keep us on our toes. Perhaps it’s the interesting plot developments or the moments that make us question where this story is heading. HALO Series Episode 8 “Allegiance” continues that trend even more with the latest preview. But are we finally going to get some more of the action that we’ve been craving? Additionally, what about other plot movements? As an example, are we going to see Doctor Halsey’s motivations become more clear? Either way, we’ve got promotional pictures and trailers for this week’s HALO episode.
John and Makee come to terms with their shared vision. Halsey has one last chance to save her mission, and herself. As things come to a head, everyone must choose a side.HALO Series Episode 8 “Allegiance” – Paramount+
HALO Series Promotional Pictures
Paramount has graced us with new promotional pictures for this week’s HALO episode. However, do they reveal anything from the plot? Not really. Though, we do get some fantastic shots of our key characters. Additionally, seeing detailed looks at the Spartan’s suiting up”, look fantastic. I will say that every scene we get with the Spartans does them justice. Halsey’s effective use of them continues to be a staple point of the Halo series storytelling. However, will that go well?
HALO Series Episode 8 “Allegiance” – Teaser Trailer
This week’s teaser trailer for HALO Series Episode 8 “Allegiance” is fantastic! You can almost feel the tension building while watching. Finally, we’re seeing more elements of the Human-Covenant War. A planet that has been glassed appears on UNSC High Command screens. However, is this perhaps alluding to something that might be happening sooner than we think? Stick with me, as we’ll do some theory crafting in a moment. Additionally, the trailer also shows us the Covenant Prophets.
However, it may seem like the UNSC’s plans are starting to fall apart. The Spartan program has always been controversial. Additionally, it seems like both Captain Jacob Keyes (Danny Sapani) and Admiral Marget Paragonsky (Shabana Azmi) might be losing favour with Master Chief. Even Halsey is pointing out in this trailer with John can no longer be trusted. HALO The Series has done a good job at playing with a more emotional/human side to The Master Chief. But that does come with fair criticism that the series has strayed too far from the game’s story. Then again, we knew it would be “based on” from the get go. So we should not be massively surprised at this rate.
I’m waiting for the action. To put it specifically I am waiting for the moment the Covenant show up and glass Reach. However, am I going to get my wish? I don’t know. HALO The Series is doing a good job of loosely following plot developments from established lore but also doing its own thing. This is good for so many reasons. However, it does keep viewers like me on our toes. It’s really good to be able to predict what is coming next, but also not at the same time. Yes, I’d love for it to go as I think it will, but I don’t think that is what is going to happen.
HALO Series Episode 8 “Allegiance” airs via Paramount+ in the USA, Australia, Latin America, and the Nordics. Additionally, the streaming service will also land in the UK & Ireland on June 22nd, 2022. However, other international streaming details for the HALO series remain a mystery right now.
