Wait. So if the humans KNEW that the codex was the secret to proving that they are the forerunners and thus ending the war, why did they BLOW IT UP in episode 20 of the Codex?

You really gotta pay attention to the story. Refer back to Episode 18 of the Codex for more info.

I'm thinking the same thing too. It's quite hard to "pay attention" to the story when The Codex was 2 years ago and The Heretic is every 2 weeks.

As far as i can put it together....

The humans find it has vast knowledge.
They protect and study it for a while untill they are attacked.

They cannot recapture it, and find out from the Covenant that it can activate the 7 rings... This they did not know before.

So to stop the Covenant taking control of it, activating it, and taking the knowledge... they destroy it. wink.gif


I think i have that right anyway.
Alex, or any of the crew please correct me if i am wrong happy.gif

... you are aware that it's not very hard to just rewatch the movie, right?

What I think is they heard from the guy that they were Forerunners, so they protected it from the the Covenant but the Covenant eventually recaptured it, but then they learned that it could activate the 7 rings (or is it the Ark it activates and the Ark activates the rings because the Guardian says "We have been in contact with the seven and the one and no reports have been made." and so they thought it had just been a Covenant plot all along and Dove had been lying to them the entire time.

Man why do I always right an entire paragraph every time I post?

Yes. For a long time it confused me why they even wanted to capture the Codex at all in the first series (the Codex). I always figured 'let's just kick the Covies out and blow up the stupid machine anyway.' But now I understand that they wanted to capture the Codex, but there was no feasible possibility to do so, so they destroyed it instead.

But in The Codex, there's a conversation among Jack, Candace, the Chief, and Lykergus where Lykergus reveals the name of the Codex and explains that it's a Forerunner artifact. The way the conversation carries out, it sounds like they found the Codex on accident. Someone'll probably come along and prove me wrong, but that's my take on it.

It is like that but did Dove ever mention the name Codex and they didn't know specifically that structure was the Codex that's why he said that.

^ That's not a paragraph tongue.gif


I'm pretty sure they blew it up because they saw it as a threat to humanity.

Well to be honest I think it was because when they made The Codex they didnt know they were going to make The Heretic. wink.gif

Though I may be wrong.

True, but when they made the Heretic the Spartans didn't know about the Halos.

Yea, Master Chief is on the First Halo during Heretic.

The Lucky Brats just got the Mark Vi First.

Yeah I have to agree with you. They really truly wanted to learn from the Codex but since the Elites took control of it they had no other choice but to destroy the Codex.

Hey guys. I just found out about the Codex and Heretic today. I was wondering which one is suppose to take place first. Obviously Codex was made first. but it might be like starwars, were episode 4-6 were the first to come out but they didn't take place first.

Can anyone send me a message answering this question?
