RvB: Animated... I hope they turn that into a mini series!
I've read that no, they aren't.
New episode. And some fantastic camera work, no less, a lot of slow-mo at certain points look very nice, as well as placing the credits on Red Base as it pans up.
According to Lopez, Sister is dead, and Blood Gulch has been won for the Reds. The Reds sound more like they found five dollars in the laundry, and less like they just won a war.
Lopez gets there very quickly. Like, a few seconds. His armor is a much darker shade of brown, but then this IS the first time he's bee shown in Halo 3 style.
Grif doesn't believe Sister died, and won't believe it until he sees a body, saying that when they were kids, they went skating and she fell into the ice. She was under water for three hours, but when they rescued her, she was alive and somehow pregnant.
Lopez, in minutes, finishes what Sarge had wanted: A massive underground chamber designed for Holographic simulation. (Lopez was at work for only a minute, the room is massive. Figure that out) Even when Grif thinks it's cool, Simmons (Both of them are having a bizarre role reversal around Sarge...) thinks that it would have been easier just to build the car. Sarge decided just to go for style points.
Meanwhile, Caboose continues work on the ship. I find it odd that all of his lines when it shows him working have made him sound highly competent.
