While Master Chief and company fought valiantly in episode 4, Kai-125 was the only member of Silver Team who was missing during Halo’s Fall of Reach.

Where Was Kai During Halo Season 2's Fall Of Reach?

Spoilers are ahead for Halo season 2, episode 4, "Reach."



  • Kai's absence during the Fall of Reach likely connects to her doubts about Master Chief's leadership.
  • The members of Silver Team notice that their Spartan armor is missing, but don't connect it with Kai's absence.
  • Kai's alliance with Ackerson may deepen the rifts within Silver Team, impacting their dynamic and Halo 's story.

While Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber) and his comrades fought valiantly against the invading Covenant forces during Halo season 2, episode 4, Kai-125 (Kate Kennedy), a key member of John-117's Silver Team, was missing during the Fall of Reach. Prior to the Covenant's all-out invasion, Kai accompanied her fellow Spartans to the Visegrád comms relay in the hopes of finding out what really happened to Cobalt Team. After learning that Master Chief falsified their mission, Kai begins to doubt John's leadership. After the Chief is grounded by Jacob Keyes (Danny Sapani), the friction between Kai and John grows.

Although John-117's armor-wearing Master Chief persona has become something of a heroic figure to the civilians of Reach, all of Silver Team's contributions to the fight against the Covenant are equally crucial. The members of Silver Team & John-117 (Shreiber), Kai (Kennedy), Riz-028 (Natasha Culzac), and Vannak-134 (Bentley Kalu) & all went through the same grueling demands of Dr. Catherine Halsey's Spartan program. Ever since, they've had each other's backs on the battlefield. However, Halo's Fall of Reach episode marks a turning point for Kai.

Kai Probably Left Reach With Ackerson Before Halo Season 2, Episode 4

Where Was Kai During Halo Season 2's Fall Of Reach?

Some of the biggest moments in Halo's Fall of Reach episode were things that didn't unfold on screen. Kai's suspicious absence from the conflict is definitely one of those key moments. Overwhelmed by the mission at hand, the rest of Silver Team doesn't put too much thought into Kai's whereabouts. When John, Riz, and Corporal Perez (Cristina Rodlo) eventually make it to FLEETCOM, John is quick to question Vannak about their Spartan armor & something Halsey's replacement, James Ackerson (Joseph Morgan), seemingly took with him before fleeing Reach. The trio wonder fleetingly about Kai's whereabouts, but figure she's "gone hunting."

Halo 's Silver Team is a stand-in for Halo: Reach 's Noble Team during the show's Fall of Reach episode.

Of course, John and the other members of Silver Team aren't aware of Kai's dynamic with Ackerson. Since first meeting the Spartans, Ackerson has cemented himself as an antagonistic force. The ONI officer not only gaslit John, insisting that his instinct about the Covenant invading Reach was delusional, but manipulated Kai's trust in John. After Silver Team returns from their unsanctioned mission to Visegrád, Ackerson snaps at Kai, pointing out that she previously vouched for John's stability. Since Ackerson actually knew about the Covenant invasion and quietly fled Reach, turning Kai against Silver Team might've been part of his plan.

Kai's Decision Will Impact Spartan Silver Team's Dynamic & Halo's Story


With Vannak being one of the key characters who dies during Halo season 2, episode 4, Silver Team's dynamic is already poised to change. John and Riz were able to survive the Fall of Reach without their Spartan armor, but having an extra element of defense could've saved Vannak. If Ackerson really took Silver Team's armor, and if Kai really accompanied Ackerson in his pre-invasion evacuation of Reach, John and Riz have plenty of reasons to be angry with Kai. That said, Kai's apparent alliance with Ackerson will deepen the rifts forming in Halo's once close-knit Silver Team.
