This is the Way the World Ends is the one hundred twentieth issue of the series, and the twelfth season finale.
Samus and Master Chief arrive onboard the Covenant capital ship. The Ark prepares to fire in 5 minutes. The Writer uses a freezing spell to freeze the Future Writer to the ground of the Ark, then flees as the 3 minute mark approaches. Cortana steers the capital ship towards the Ark, but Samus informs them that there's only one escape pod. Master Chief decides to stay behind, and Samus reluctantly leaves as the Ark prepares to fire in just one minute. Master Chief and Cortana say goodbye to each other, and a moment later, the capital ship slams into the Ark, blowing it to pieces. Down below, Samus, Oveur, the Writer, and the Arbiter have a funeral for Master Chief.
Master Chief appears, with his eyes closed. Cortana says "Chief?", and suddenly, his eyes open.
- The title is a reference to Cortana's final line from the E3 2006 Halo 3 trailer, "this is the way the world ends."
