The Flood

I know that most people say that it shouldn’t return but if it does, how should it?

They are back in Awakening the Nightmare which means they are back in the current plotline.

okay I have to give that one to ya

as mentioned before they have reappeared in awakening the nightmare but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll appear in infinite, the ark is quite a bit away from the main story right now. but if anders and the ring shes on is found and plays a role in infinite then maybe that can give cortana some incentive to reactivate the portal to the ark (it’s been reopened once before and with less capabilities than cortana has, it can be done again). that would give unsc troops a chance to slip through and provide more food for the flood unintentionally or give the remaining flood that are on the ark a chance to slip through assuming they haven’t already been contained by the sentinels again.

then there’s the more likely scenario which is flood already being present and contained on zeta halo. it did once play a major role with experimenting on flood and humans during the forerunner era so it’s not that hard to believe that there are flood left over somewhere on the ring.

According to the Spartan Field Manual (spoilers if you haven’t read it), Spartans are still actively engaged against Flood threats on the discovered Halo installations. At least, that’s heavily implied in the manual. So the threat is still very much present. With that in mind, I am hoping that with the whole shift back to the old art style and the proliferation of Flood lore in other media, 343i could bring them back. It could be through a traditional containment failure on a ring, or even Cortana being infected with the Logic Plague and actually being the harbinger of the Primordial’s resurgence.

if we are gonna be on installation 07 then why would’nt the flood also be there
