Halo: Oblivion - questions/spoilers

Will Roselle and Samson become assistants to the Ferrets at Gao? That is the first possibility that sprang to mind when I read the sentence. My jaw dropped, honestly. Veta and her spartans getting help! Buuuutt not actually likely.

I dont know about you, but I appreciate that Blue Team got to make mistakes, yet immerge victorious. They are stretched thin, stressed, concerned, and still broke through every obstacle.

On the other hand, the Elite antagonist (his name is jumbled up in mind) was too sinilar to any previous one in a book. But he is almost able to outsmart the Spartans.

Im not sure what implications this story has for the future of the series. All I know is that Shadows of Reach connects to Halo Infinite.
