Talia back home

Talia was questioned by Ackerson upon her return to Reach, but she claimed to not recall any of the events that Master Chief reported. Ackerson believes John is mentally unstable, leading the frustrated Spartan to visit Talia's house to confront her about her failure to remember the events that transpired during their mission. Talia's mother intervenes, asking John to stay for dinner, and he accepts. He spends the evening with her family who become excited when they figure out John is a Spartan. Talia, meanwhile, gives John a message in morse code during prayer. When John and Talia finally speak in private, Talia reveals that she sensed something out there during their mission, leading to her guilt as all her men were killed, yet she survived without a clear explanation.
