** Halo and Toy have both signed up for the army and are fighting a war in a remote region of a remote planet. Their unit gets ambushed on their first real sortie and all the soldiers except Toy and Halo are killed. Toy is injured, so Halo helps her limp along, and eventually fashions a stretcher so she can drag Toy to their HQ, keeping a determinedly positive attitude all the while despite the grim circumstances.[[spoiler:And then she arrives and tells the medic to attend to Toy, and the medic takes one look at
Toy and says "How long has she been dead?" Halo's answer: a quietly stunned "''What?''"]]

*** YourMileageMayVary. Depending on how you view the series' themes of being dragged into things and held there against your will, the ending displays a sense of freedom which can be a very uplifting ending. Still sad, but in a much more triumphant way.
