This article is about the Spartan Ops episode. For other uses of "Exodus", see Exodus (disambiguation).
Exodus is the tenth and last episode of Spartan Ops Season 1. It was released on February 18, 2013. In this episode, Jul 'Mdama's final plan is set in motion, guaranteeing the destruction of Infinity and her crew. Spartan Palmer and the members of Fireteam Majestic are dispatched on a do-or-die mission as all comes to an explosive end.
Jul looks at the half of the Janus Key he carries. A terminal in front of him rises out of the ground.
The Storm Elite nods and walks away. 'Mdama accesses the activated Terminal and presses a few button. But he hesitates before inputting the final command, then presses his hand against the largest symbol. The holograms vanish and 'Mdama strides away. In front of him glows an enormous hologram, displaying the Ur-Didact's unbound symbol.
Establishing shot of the UNSC Infinity. Two Broadswords fly past, toward the Infinity. Cut to aboard its bridge, where Dr. Glassman explains the situation to Captain Lasky. The holo-table shows a model of Requiem.
Glassman changes the hologram to one of the Infinity. The spatial tether disappears as he outlines his point.
Cut to Lasky, who listens and nods in approval. Dr. Glassman beings up a hologram of Fireteam Majestic.
Cut to Requiem's surface, where Palmer communicates with the ship and to her Spartans.
Gabriel Thorne hears the loud sounds of ships.
Cut to Infinity's bridge.
Roland shows the hologram of Requiem, showing dozens of Covenant ships leaving orbit. Lasky looks out the window and sees them all jumping to slipspace.
The ship suddenly shudders.
Glassman looks in horror at the ship's hologram.
The hologram plays a simulation of Requiem's predicted course. The planet travels into the large star in the center of its solar system.
Cut to Thorne on Requiem's surface.
Palmer pulls out her M6Hs.
Majestic dashes down the alley to find the devices.
Establishing shot of Infinity above Requiem, now drifting closer to its sun. Cut to Lasky aboard the ship's bridge. He holds his hand in front of his face trying to block out the light from the sun now filling up his window. A filter then decreases its intensity, allowing Lasky to look at it safely without blinding himself. Lasky walks up to Infinity's holo-table.
Cut to Requiem's surface. Palmer is cornered against the wall of a hallway, trying to shoot at the Covenant guarding the interior.
DeMarco crosses the hallway, avoiding their shots.
Thorne charges up with Hoya.
Tedra Grant leaps up to join Thorne and Hoya, tossing a grenade as she does so.
The grenade explodes, killing most of the remaining Covenant. Only two are left standing.
Thorne dashes ahead and accesses the hologram, ducking low to avoid the incoming fire from the last two Elites. Palmer rushes up behind him and kills one of the remaining Elites.
Palmer and the others cover Thorne. The last Elite is killed.
The team moves forth and secures the area. Thorne presses a few more buttons, and the floor opens up to reveal a rectangular artifact just like the one aboard Infinity.
Thorne presses another button. The artifact glows, shakes, and then falls to the ground inert.
The Spartans turn and leave the hallway. Cut to aboard Infinity, where Glassman inspects the artifact in the hangar.
The artifact shudders and floats off the ground, no longer stuck to it.
Cut back to the bridge.
Infinity in orbit begins to move forward.
Cut to Majestic's Pelican, flying up through Requiem's atmosphere.
Grant is piloting and the others sit in the back cockpit seats. Crimson's Pelican can be seen in front of them.
Grant increases the Pelican's speed, and the two aircraft fly out of Requiem through a crack in its enormous plating. The Pelicans head for the waiting Infinity. Cut to aboard its hangar, where two technicians watch them arrive, only to run and cover their heads as the birds get closer. The Pelicans have a rough landing, but arrive intact.
Cut to the bridge. Roland gives a thumbs up.
James presses a button and Infinity's engines light up, rocketing the ship away. As the ship exits the frame, the artifact, having been jettisoned by Infinity, can be seen tumbling through space toward the ancient Forerunner planet, both of which are then swallowed by its sun.
After Infinity gets some distance, the sun collapses and then explodes. Infinity opens a slipspace portal and flees. Some of the sun's plasma follows through it, but the ship makes an intact escape. Cut to Roland.
The entire crew cheers.
The UNSC Infinity flies away. Fade to black.
Fade in on Lasky and Palmer, heading to the lab room. Palmer is out of armor.
Palmer types in the password. The door to the lab opens.
Inside Dr. Glassman inspects the Janus Key, which is being held inside a glass canister for safety. Nearby machines examine it.
Glassman is now wearing a sling. He seems somewhat dazed.
Glassman clicks on a screen above them, which shows microscopic images of the key's structure.
The doctor peers down at the tiny artifact inside the canister.
Match cut of the other half of the Key, floating aboard Jul 'Mdama's flagship. The Sangheili paces across the deck. The rest of Jul's fleet can be seen outside a window.
Cut to Halsey, seated on the deck. Her left arm has been amputated and the sleeve has been tied into a tourniquet.
Halsey stands up and walks up to 'Mdama, picking up the Key as she speaks.
Jul 'Mdama angrily takes the Key from her, examining it for a moment.
Fade to black. Cut to credits. Season ends.
