    If this is the past during project freelancer, shouldn't they're armor be the same ones in halo 3? But I understand that halo 3 doesn't have the same red and blue bases in halo 5 and had to do this

    The transition from last episode to this one was done quite poorly in my opinion. Also from the random switch not a lot was givin. Kind of disappointed too that I had to watch 10 ads before it would play. Still tho can't wait for the next episode.

    Now I feel like a dick mentioning the Grif lookalike doing these things behind their back....gg RT. This is gettin real, mind you, I still don't believe this is an excuse for him to do what he does, but of course he had his own bombshell to drop. I think I see now why they centered around 'Grif' in this season, now I'm convinced more than before that Grif isn't going to sit this one all the way out.

    Oh I get it now, Carolina killed Temple's best friend, that's why hes mad at her and all the Freelancers. Bro that's no excuse to turn into a serial killer.

    this was pretty funny, I love it.


    and finally! they show their Grif!


    he seems really sweet


    him and Temple seem to have a pretty nice bromance


    wonder if this orange guy has a sister too?


    all so is it possible that Georgina and Biff are Grif and Sister's parents? I mean think about it,

    Grif's dad 'runs off' but what if that was a cover story that his mom made up because she didn't know what happen to him after well what ever it was that was suppose to happen to him..........point is she must of changed her last name to Grif to honor her beloved's memory, think about it.


    it's Georgina AND Biff, it not only plays as her new last name that she had changed legally to,


    but all so the ship name of the two..........oh my gosh we have found Grify's Daddy! 


    it is just a theory, that might even be true or not, sorry I'm being weird.

    Some thoughts about the AI and PFL..and Temple being an AI

    Church was actually Epsilon, the memories of Alpha

    It makes me think that Temple is a different AI harvested from Alpha, if not Alpha itself !

    OR .. A different AI (or AI fragment) from a different freelancer project completely.

    Part of PFL was about enhancing the freelancers capabilities in a battle by using AI and testing them on the RVB sim troppers.

    Also the director kept harvesting AI fragments from Alpha by putting the Alpha through various tortures to harvest each fragment so each freelancer could have their own AI

    At the beginning of Season 6, the Director and Malcolm hargraves keep having the conversations about using the experimental AI and how Malcom Hargraves gave the Director an Experimental AI .. etc.  .. and when chatting with Felix and Locus, he keeps talking about it being "his"/UNSC property.  both the suits and the AI. and makes it clear that he will do everything to recover the said property (both suit and AI)

    It kinda begs the question 

    Did Malcolm Hargraves have other freelancers projects and other directors working on experimental AI and suits for each RVB sim trooper gulch ? .. and temple is just another AI/AI fragment from a different PFL project ?

      Temple can't be the Alpha.....in Season6 Alpha ( Church) was destroyed ( or was he ) by the EMP Wash let loose at the Freelancer headquarters. Caboose and the Reds left in the chupathingy's with " Church's" body and the Epsilon Unit......the possibility the Temple is another fragment is a valid argument...Hargraves was the Oversite Sub Committee Chairman not in charge of Project Freelancer...there were other programs as mentioned in seasons 6-10 trying to come up with ways to overcome the Covenant ....so theoretically your theory and others mentioned in this thread are potentially valid. .....we still don't know what happened to Georgia....and there were 49 total freelancers ( poor Florida ) ....so Temple could be another freelancer, Ai, or even one of Hargraves lackeys......I guess we'll just have to wait until RT lets us all in on the secret....

    If that ship at the end was the Mother of Invention, then I'm a little confused. Didn't Dylan say that the Desert Gulch was a prototype outpost for Blood Gulch? Because if that's the case, then how could the Mother of Invention be going to this prototype outpost after it had already crashed and after the necessity for a simulation outpost to keep the Alpha safe?

      Lol I know that scene was in the past. I mean how could the Mother of Invention have flown to an outpost (Desert Gulch) that was created as a prototype for another outpost (Blood Gulch) that was created AFTER the Invention had already crashed. 

    • RubikSolver1028

      Also, the markings on the side of the ship match another side shot back in Season 9 Episode 4. Also, this may not have been a prototype or it could be another training ground for the Freelancers. But if Surge was the one who called Command and told them they are either A) a man down and need someone or B) need someone to get revenge on the Blues, then that gives them a reason to be there. Back in Season 7, F.I.I.L.A.S said they were hundreds of training grounds.

      Honestly, I think the way to make that "prototype" line make sense is if when they say prototype, they mean Simulation Prototype, as in the first simulation outpost. That'd be kinda cool to see the first simulation outpost.

    My money is on Temple being Demo Man. He was in the episode The Twins, where he was knocked onto a ledge as North, South and Carolina escaped the cryogenics facility. Later, he takes a direct blow from a Mac Cannon, on the roof of the Insurrection building, before we see him at the shipyards later, with a mechanical arm, seemingly his only real damage. The Wiki says he is dead, having taken a blow from Maines Brute Gun, but if you watch, he only falls 10 feet into water while still screaming. So, to recap; Demo Man survived an exploding oil rig, in the Arctic, and both a Mac Cannon directly hitting him AND a 100 story building falling on him. And in all three appearances, not only was Carolina in attendance, but he talked profusely. Its just a theory though. They do not share the same voice actors, but that means absolutely nothing.

    In any case, chances are, there is *NO* previous correlation between Temple, or any character we have seen in the past. And could just be an original character cooked up for the plot, and whoms history we will not know til its explained.

    I did think at one time Temple was Agent Georgia, the Freelancer who got lost in space. He was in the top 10 at Freelancer, which probably means he and Carolina would've met each other several times... and I'm not entirely sure he's dead. He is in a deleted scene just floating in space, but he could have survived. Of course, I'm basing this on Jubal Early, a bounty hunter who lived through a similar situation.

    Has anybody considered the possibility that Temple is actually Director of Freelancer program  AKA Leonard Church and that he did not actually die when he self destructed his lab? that would explain why he thinks Carolina may recognise his voice being that he is her father and would also explain his armour and sniper rifle as well as his psychopathic intent on killing off the freelancers

    Guys, I just realized something:

    Loco mentioned a few episodes ago that he wasn't making a bomb. He said it would "be better than a bomb. It's going to be big and beautiful and then we are going to be best friends." But... he never said it was going to be explosive in any way, or even dangerous at all. And that bit about being best friends; there's no guarantee he meant with Temple. Maybe he was referring to his creation in the works. I think Loco is making an AI!

    My thought before this episode was that Carolina had been the freelancer assigned to their gulch and that she had killed their "orange one" now known as Biff and that is Temples reason to have so much hatred towards the project and more importantly the agents, would also explain why Carolina would recognize temple's voice. However I don't think she would forget them or their outposts if that was the case, maybe I'm missing something in there.

    About 90% of the people here have more than likely fallen into the exact trap that the writers at RoosterTeeth wanted us to fall into. Due to the way the story has progressed so far, it's logical to assume that Carolina ends up killing Biff. No one has taken into account that none of this season has been logical so far. Any time that we've jumped to a logical conclusion, it was very much disproved in an insane way that no one saw coming.

    This isn't to say that it's impossible that Carolina had anything to do with Biff's death. After all, as of right now, that's the most logical conclusion. I'm just saying that maybe we need to step back and look at this in a broader view, rather than letting the writers pigeonhole our expectations.

    P.S. The fact that so many people are in fact pigeonholed into this set expectation, regardless of how many times they were proven wrong, is a sign of such great storytelling. My kudos to the writer of the season thus far, and I can't wait to see more.

    It's always interesting to see how the other simulation troopers react to situations. Our Reds and Blues have always been abornormal, willing to go with the flow, forgive, and move on. It's what makes them, them.

    It reminds me of season 6 where another simulation base ran into O'Malley, and they were horrified by what happened while the BGC were just annoyed mostly. 

    They took finding out about Freelancer really well, enough to allow Wash and Carolina into the fold while Temple wants all of them dead, even those that apparently did nothing to him. It's an interesting character contrast.
