As such, Silver Debrief on Halo's Waypoint blog will be used to unpack all the action that took place during the episode every Monday. "It’ll be a source to recap the story of each episode in detail, serve as a hub for additional show-related content, and provide some more detailed insights into certain things."
For instance, the Silver Debrief helps walk fans through the episode, particularly towards the end where the Master Chief removes his mask. In retrospect, 343 industries had already given fans a heads up that they would be revealing the true identity of the man behind the armor suit.
The Chief says that he’s trying to help her, and in response to her threat to kill him he notes that the weapon won’t so much as dent the titanium plating of his Mjolnir armor. It is at this point that he removes his helmet, revealing the man beneath, looking into Kwan’s eyes and making himself vulnerable to show that he means what he’s saying—that she will be executed if they land. Upon asking why the Chief is choosing to help her instead of following orders, he finds that he doesn’t truly know the answer.
There will also be a show dubbed Halo The Series Declassified. It will serve as the official after-show hosted by Sydnee Goodman. Essentially, the show will help walk fans through the events that transpired during the episode through interviews and BTS goodies. This week's Declassified episode is already live on Facebook.
