** [[spoiler: It also serves as a Foreshadow (or in the case we find out in Season 10, a callback) when we discover how Project Freelancer created the AI fragments. The Alpha was tortured to the point where it had to sacrifice parts of it's personality in order to deal with the trauma, much like how the Alpha had to do in order to be the OnlySaneMan in Blood Gulch).

** Alternatively, Project Freelancer wanted to keep Tex and Church away from each other. The first memory that Church has is of Tex killing Jimmy. This is also seen in Season 1, where it's played like a flashback. That means that Project Freelancer purposefully planted a false memory of Tex killing everyone at Church's last post (including Jimmy), so that if Tex ever showed up to see him again, he'd be afraid to be near her. The only reason why Church doesn't seem afraid of her like he should be is due to the fact that he's based off of Leonard Church, the director of Project Freelancer, and is shown to be obsessed with his late wife Allison, which Tex is based on. Essentially, much like the person he's based on, AI Church is obsessed with Texas because she's Allison.

* A minor one, but why does Caboose seem to think its Blue versus Red instead of Red versus blue? Blue starts with B and comes before Red which has an R in it. In his mind, that makes enough sense to sound right. Plus, teammates usually refer to themselves first and the other team second.

* While it might be surprising to see Simmons of all people pull out a knife and was pretty close to overpowering Gene by himself. It would make sense considering everything that Simmons' been through, and also taking into account that he's a cyborg as well. While we don't know much about Gene, it's safe to say that he doesn't have that advantage of experience and cybernetic enhancements.

* While it might be surprising to see Simmons of all people pull out a knife and was come pretty close to overpowering Gene by himself. It would make sense a lot of sense, considering everything that Simmons' he has enhanced strength due to becoming a HollywoodCyborg, but not only that he has also been through, and also through a lot of combat especially after taking into account that part in a full blown war in the Chorus Trilogy. He might be nerdy and TheSmartGuy, he's already been through enough to give him a cyborg as well.boost in his skills. While we don't know much about Gene, it's safe to say that he doesn't have that advantage of experience and cybernetic enhancements.


* According to ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' [[AllThereInTheManual lore]], the ability to wield an energy sword is considered so impressive in Sangheili society that anyone who can master one can mate with any female they desire. [[CasanovaWannabe Tucker can't pick up women to save his life,]] [[MrSeahorse but he does get chosen to be impregnated with an Sangheili parasite, specifically because he had his sword!]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Sim Troopers from the Season 14 episode "Grey vs. Gray" all having the same kind of Color Blindness that results in them only seeing shades of gray may seem like [[RuleOfFunny Funny]] [[ContrivedCoincidence Coincidence]], but odds are, Project Freelancer knew about their disabilities beforehand and grouped them together specifically ''because'' of it.




Added DiffLines:

* Of course Caboose survived the Labyrinth on his own. Chrovos describes it as "a predator that attacks its prey with logic." It can't do anything against a being completely devoid of logic.

Added DiffLines:

* CT's fear that the Director was drawing a line between the best and worst agents was likely more than a hunch. Season 14 reveals she was close friends with the Triplets, the worst agents in the program who suddenly went missing one day. All she really had to do was put two and two together.


** As a Monitor, Epsilon had powerful abilities like telekinesis and laser beams. Since this body was likely built for pretend gods, having such powers built in would be necessary to make them seem almighty.

** As a Monitor, Epsilon had powerful abilities like telekinesis and laser beams. Since this body was likely built for pretend gods, having such powers built in would be necessary to make them seem almighty.The Cosmic Powers display similar abilities (they hold real weapons despite their hands being holographic, and Atlus can fire lightning blasts not unlike Epsilonís laser).


Added DiffLines:

** It's a small detail, but every step Kalirama makes in Episode 2 leaves a smoldering footprint. It's because her HardLight hologram is burning the concrete.

Added DiffLines:

* If Loco's machine wasn't stopped, Earth would've been bombarded with natural disasters and swallowed up in a black hole. Sounds bad enough already, but two seasons later, we learn that black holes take whatever they absorb to the beginning of time. Anyone lucky enough to survive the apocalypse would've then had to contend with ''the Big Bang''.

Added DiffLines:


* At the end of ''Singularity'', Donut tells Chrovos that Huggins went back in time to warn the Cosmic Powers about Genkins's plan before it happens. But if the Cosmic Powers stopped Genkins before he became Chrovos, that would lead to a number of [[RealityBreakingParadox Reality-Breaking Paradoxes]] on its own. Seems like a glaring PlotHole, but remember that the gods only knew the "pizza quest" was happening because of a prophecy. Though never stated, it's highly likely this prophecy came from Huggins herself. The gods just missed a few key details. This also fits perfectly with the time travel logic of Season 16, where meddling with the past usually comes back to bite you.


* Season 10 reveals that having two AI units in Carolina's head nearly put her in a coma, and all it took for Washington to go mad was Epsilon's destruction in his head. Rewatching Season 1, when Church and Tex enter Caboose's brain to get Omega out of his head, suddenly his rapid mental decline makes perfect sense: Caboose had three [=AIs=] in his head at once, two of which destroyed the third. Caboose's brain was severely damaged from the stress, meaning that [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom when Church and Tex were trying to save Caboose, they ended up damaging him more than Omega ever did]].

Added DiffLines:

* When Wash tells Church that heís the Alpha, Churchís first response is that he canít possibly be an A.I. because he has memories from when he was a kid. He doesnít have those memories, ''Jimmy'' did.
