After his bold escape from the UNSC at the end of episode 1, Halo the second episode, entitled “Unbound,” begins with a 22-year-old flashback in the past that sees the Chief Master (also known as John) struggling to make an associate decision With a partner Spartan. John leaves the confines of his Unsc facilities and meets Soren, who seeks to leave the military group. After Soren tries to convince John to leave the UNSC with him, John threatens to shoot him if he does not return to the base. Soren ends up appealing to John’s emotions before John finally accepts to let Soren walk before informing the Unsc superiors of what happened.
Back to the present, after escaping the claws of the UNSC, Master Chief and Kwan land in a small colony called Rubble. Here, Chief meets with Soren, who has clearly created a life for himself in the confines of the universe along with many others after leaving the UNSC. The master chief ends up meeting with Soren’s wife and son before speaking about the artifact he found in Madrigal. Also, he emphasizes that he is looking for a place for Kwan to hide.
At the base of the Covenant known as High Charity, they present us to many of the alien race leaders and learn more about their plans. After speaking with an elite that was present at the Battle of Madrigal, the leaders of the Covenant learn that the artifact that the master chief obtained is an angular stone that the race has been looking for for a long time. Makee, who is a human who was raised by the leaders of the covenant, decides that she will be who pursue the cornerstone that the boss now has in the power of him.
In Reach, UNSC leaders make an inventory after the events that were developed with Master Chief. Dr. Halsey, the creator of the Spartans, emphasizes that the master chief was absent without permission just because his mind was not stable. As such, she suggests that spartans are given a new one known as a cutting as a way to keep them in line with the orders of the UNSC. Although doubtful, UNSC leaders agree that Halsey can implement Cortana with Master Chief as a species of program test.
After learning more about the artifact that Chief has, Soren presents him to Reth, a man who is said that he potentially knows more about him. Reth makes Master Chief interact with the cornerstone once again, which makes a great ring appear. Horrified by what he has seen, Reth tells Chief that the ring will cause “the end of life as we know it.” He also tells the teacher chief which is something greater than he thinks he is and tells him that he can prevent the ring from proving this catastrophe.
Knowing that what is at stake is now much greater, the master chief takes the artifact and decides to return to the UNSC in Reach. He also leaves Kwan behind with Soren in the rubble, telling him that he will be safe in the place.
Once he reaches the UNSC, the master chief gives him the cornerstone to Halsey. The boss, who is then placed on the dungeon for the previous actions of him, speaks with Halsey about the importance of the artifact after she had time to inspect him. The teacher chief explains that the artifact has caused him emotions that he has not felt in a long period of time. In turn, Halsey consoles the boss before she finishes the episode with a precedence of the next arrival of cutting.
