** I guess that explanation just doesn't add up to me; the UNSC is a purely military entity, so it's hard to imagine a career politician like Hargrove having any sort of authority in it, especially in a position of such apparent power. My point about his speech is more that, by all accounts he likes to keep out of the public eye in general, and IRL people aren't that interested in politicians who are unelected but powerful bureaucrats (Except for a presidents cabinet members) which is all that Hargrove really is.

** Carolina was testing out a new prototype version of her armor. The completed version, suit she was wearing on Chorus, helped her withstand getting knocked through concrete and falling off a cliff, stuff that her old suit couldn't match. Chances are her proto-suit was better at shock absorption, hence the deflection. This also explains what happened after Carolina deflected the broom: the older model suit just couldn't take a hit like that. Grif took similar hits in the Recollections trilogy and survived because his suit was improved.

Added DiffLines:

* So, this is a borderline-meta question but it does need to be addressed; is the assertion that the Blood Gulch Crew was hand-picked to mirror the Desert Gulch Crew a SeriesContinuityError or a {{Retcon}} or what; just last season we were shown that, while Grif, Simmons, Sarge, and Tucker were picked in a way that could support this idea (And presumably Lopez's robot kit could've been tampered with to ensure he mirrored Lorenzo), Caboose and Donut were clearly sent there by accident (And had little resemblance to their counterparts at first; Caboose only turned into a true CloudCuckoolander after Omega possessed him and he was deprived of oxygen for a while, and Donut really only became the way he was after Tex stuck a grenade to his head).

* If Tex's throw had so much force behind it, why was Carolina able to deflect it so effortlessly? She's not been shown to have ''that'' much strength. (And I re-watched the scene, the broom did ''not'' go through a gap in the armor, just through a black part of the metal plating. I'm willing to accept that it doesn't splinter because of artistic license or a bit of UnreliableNarrator on Temple's part, but the rest is really questionable.)

** Exactly what it's name implies. A group of people who oversee the investigation of something. In this case they're investigating Project Freelancer. As for why Hargrove was giving a public speech, he's a politician and the CEO of Charon Industries.

** That kind of makes sense, but my problem was more that there's no discernible tactical advantage to using the live rounds- like, it doesn't actually help them ''win'', so I don't understand what he means by there not being any rules on the battlefield. Also, IDK, I can't see how an impromptu live-fire exercise is less dangerous then a physical sparring match. (This is WildMassGuessing but maybe, MAYBE it'd make sense if he was actually worried about Carolina and her real name is Allison)

\n** "No rules on the battlefield," I suppose. Or, maybe he thought that Wyoming and Maine weren't a real problem to Tex, given she had a more aggressive AI than them. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he only freak out when Carolina and Tex were about to fight? He probably knew that, with two AI, Carolina was a bigger threat to Tex than Wyoming and Maine were.

* Why did the Director laud Wyoming and Maine for using live ammo against Tex? Leaving aside the fact that it's a serious OutOfCharacterMoment for him, given how protective he is of Tex. More saliently though...what exactly is the supposed advantage in using live ammo, beyond petty spite?

** Given that you can see the wreckage of the Mother of Invention and it's visited in the third episode of the season, maybe not. Then again, the map in which the third episode is filmed might be a remake of Sidewinder. I wouldn't know, as I have yet to play Halo 5.

* What the Hell is an Oversight Subcommittee? (Like, I looked up both terms but I'm confused as to how it's supposed to fit into the UNSC (Or UEG?) hierarchy. (Also, why the head of such a group would be giving a public speech as seen at the beginning of Season 13.)

** Tex's "injury" in the training room in Season 9 would seem to imply that [[spoiler: she was always a robot]].

* Since the Mother of Invention crashed at Sidewinder, does that mean the base there is built from the ship's wreck?
