|*||01||04||Extinction Event Horizon||2:04||To the White Forest: The very beginning of the chapter, as Gordon is climbing out of the train wreck.||The title is likely indicative of the impending return of multitudinous Combine forces through the Citadel's superportal, which would result in a genocide of humanity, or an extinction event, and how this, for humanity's survival, would be an inescapable 'point of no return,' which in layman's terms is what an event horizon is in regards to spacetime in astrophysics.|
