Halo - Homecoming

The appropriately-titled "Homecoming" offers stories of both Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber) and Kwan (Yerin Ha) returning home. While Kwan discovers she can't really go home again and the revolution she hoped to rejoin is dead, John makes some discoveries in returning to his childhood home as he leads Dr. Halsey (Natascha McElhone) to the larger artifact. While the artifact is the big find, John's discovery of meeting Halsey before his parents' death, something the doctor inelegantly sidesteps when it's brought up, suggests there is much more hidden about John's past than has so far been revealed. As for Kwan, that storyline continues to spin its wheels, although hopefully Makee's (Charlie Murphy) eventual arrival on Madrigal might help.

Back at UNSC we get an odd back-up tale of Kai (Kate Kennedy) rediscovering a bit of her humanity, while acting increasingly bizarre, and making a new friend in Dr. Keys (Olive Gray) whose notice of Kai's behavior, and Dr. Halsey's dislike of anything which doesn't fit into her design, foreshadows trouble for both Spartans. With Kai and John both moving further from the standard of what a Spartan is supposed to be, and Kai not having magically artifact powers, you have to wonder if she'll get any of the extra freedom which John has been given while being of use in Halsey's research.
