    I mean, yeah what Temple is doing is fucked up and all... But on the bright side he didn't get to the Triplets! Yet... And hopefully won't. I mean if he does they'll probably live since they'd go in after Carolina and Wash and there is a definite chance that they're gonna live so therefore so would the Triplets but that's probably not gonna happen...

    That moment where Wash and Carolina held hands like just struck me right in the heart. I don't care if it was romantic or platonic THAT WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT.

    Some people are saying that the Freelancer in white in the photo could be Temple, though I assumed it was Wyoming (the Halo 5 colour pallet is messing with me, and there are only so many variations they can do!). 
    Some people are also saying Temple can't be a Freelancer as Wash would also run the risk of recognising his voice, but it's worth noting that Wash joined late and never met Georgia ("What happened to Georgia?!" "You don't wanna know"), and evidently didn't know other agents like Illinois well/at all.

    Personally I hope it's someone more original than a Freelancer, but there's my 5 cents.

    I totally saw this betrayal coming.  Seriously, it was a no brainer.


    Which means Caboose will likely save the day.

    The most popular theories of the identity of Temple so far are:

    - Temple could be Agent Georgia, because his voice and Temple are extremely similar (and because Temple knew a lot about the freelancers because he probably was one of them).

    - Agent Florida (Captain Flowers), because of his armor and because he probably used to be a Freelancer, which is why Temple knows so much about the freelancers)

    - Agent York because he was a freelancer and was betrayed by Carolina and that betrayal lead him on a path that got him "killed", which can be a reason why Temple specifically called out Carolina ("especially what she did to us" ep 10)

    - Also, this could be the character sitting next to York in the picture at Agent Illinois house (ep 10) (actual name/identity unknown but he is a freelancer)

    - Finally, this could be a new character we have never seen before (or seen very little) who is angry at the freelancers for doing something to him and/or others ("what she did to us" quoted from Temple in 10). He may or may not be a Freelancer.

      Well it's not Georgia because... well, you don't want to know what happened to Georgia.

      It's not Florida because a) he's dead and b) he knew Wash.

      It's not York for the same reasons.

      The last two are possible though. Most likely I think it's a new character and it's 50/50 on whether it's a freelancer or no.

    • AgentExeider FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 weeks ago

      @wigglytadpol  Actually, I think it's Florida too, A) Death has never been a permanent state in this series. B) Sure, he knows wash but of course if you're playing another person you wouldn't give that fact away. Also it sounds that he might have a bigger bone to pick with Carolina.


      My reason for thinking it's Florida is A) the voice actor and B) (I know this sounds stupid) The fact that he prioritizes Blue over Red, he calls it Blue vs Red and ordered his men into Blue armor. Florida chose to be Blue when he set up the test gulch for Alpha.


      I don't think it's a new character because revenge plots only work if you the audience know the character in question and have at least some knowledge and emotional investment into the character.

  • CyberneticWhale

    I'm pretty sure temple has to be a new character. As great as it would be to see York back, or other theories, there are some important details:
    Temple says "My greatest fear is you would know me, Carolina"

    What this means is that he is not another agent, because if he was, there would still be a possibility of Wash knowing him.

    We don't really know any other characters that are directly related to Carolina, and Carolina alone, so the only option is that this is a new character who will have more information revealed later.

      Same. I had such high hopes for this season up until ep 8, it had really seemed like they'd gotten back to what made RvB so good to begin with. All these convoluted conspiracies with the freelancer program have fallen flat IMO.

    While I'm liking this season so far, it all feels a little rushed. First we meet some new characters, then reconnect with the crew, then meet some more new characters, then we're quickly thrown into this life-or-death situation. I wouldn't have really called what happened a plot twist. We weren't really given any reason to trust Temple in the least and it was hinted pretty wildly that he was up to something. I just feel like it all happened a little to fast from a story telling perspective.

    Maybe a stretch, but I think This guy is York.  As for Illinois, I think it will later be revealed to be Griff since he's the only RVB member not mirrored in the other party.

      York is dead. And even if you're right, which is 99.999% impossible, he wouldn't try to kill Wash and Carolina. Especially Wash bc he and York were on the same page. Wash knew everything ever since the Epsilion AI was removed from him. York, Tex and Wyoming had left almost directly after that.

  • janeDoe001

    So, having finally watched this episode, I'm leaning toward it being Agent Illinois.


    1 - While the body in the room does look to have Illinois' armor, how do we even know he's in it?

    2 - His body is the only one that's not frozen in attack/defense mode.


    Maybe he succeeded with his long time goal but maybe he wasn't able to enjoy it because of the things he did. Maybe he also blames Carolina for York's death.

    i don't know what to believe anymore.

    i thought RT were being clever and making the blues and reds as fishy as possible, only to revile them to be the good guys.

    but no, the fishiness is justified.

    after so many plot twists, im thrown off when something happens that we expect to happen.


    this episode was amazing, temples trap card was really impressive with a fantastic revile.

    not sure how i feel about "take off your suit" but it was pretty funny.


    caboose is immune to the lockdown so im going to call it right now.

    he's either going to go angry mode immediately when temple turns on the reds and blues.

    or he's going to act like he's locked because he thinks its a game. then move when temple least expects it to un-alive him.

      I think that's probably one of the closest guesses. I can't find a voice in the RvB universe that sounds more similar than Georgia.

    Actually, how come he calls Carolina just "Carolina", while calling Wash "agent Washington"? That's rules out any main freelancers, a single he would've called wash "Washington"(minus the agent).

  • RegalSerperior

    heck, Temple might Ben Doyle. There's no reason for it, but he does briefly roll and R, seems to know Carolina more than wash to the point she knows his voice, and refers to Washington as Agent Washington 

  • ShadowSpark

    I freakin called it! I so totally called it! I didn't trust Temple from the start and knew his hands weren't as clean as he attempted to claim! Soon as they were the first to appear on the shore I knew damn well it was them (that slip up saying it was their lair was just overkill). But my first tip off was at the very start when they pushed aside the Chorus attacks AND the attack on Dylan, the two times they were actually doing work.


    I'm surprised that Tucker is following along on this so close though, yes Church 'maybe' be alive, but being this bloodthirsty? Plus going off virutally no information, its even worse than I feared before if his obsession is blinding him this much...the 'Blues and Reds' aren't good liars. Also on that, with Temple's sadistic, cowardly speech, I'm starting to think they aren't really sim troopers. They chose the guise of the 'Reds and Blues' to destroy their reputation, I'm getting that vibe here. Think about it, only people who broke as much as Carolina's team would be those idiots from Blood Glutch.


    I think this also explains why Dylan is being kept at arm's length and turned into a suspect. I think Temple realizes that she's right on his behind and needed to throw her off the trail long enough to finish his work. And another theory, I think its their 'Grif' that's clearing these locations while Temple plays house guest. With Grif not coming along, they don't need a double to keep him busy so their 'Grif' is free to get work done. That's why even though they're wanted, the only time they met 'resistance' was when they first met. They had to drive the point that they were on Tucker's side so they staged that act. Meanwhile, when they scavenged parts for the cloaking field, it was empty, if they were usable parts, someone had to mantain them.


    I think this is going to come down to either a, Grif gets bored not having to sneak to get away from work and join back...let's face it, its only fun to sleep on the job when its under your bosses nose. Or Dylan, being kept far away, gets enough time to piece things together. Or everyone die, then next season is the adventures of Doc and Junior.

    Also, loved Carolina's reaction "Isn't that a little forward?!" XD

    On the picture hanged on the wall of Agent Illinois, you can reconize : Illinois of course, he's the closer to the objective. Then come York and Carolina (they seemed so close, that's sad), North (how does they drink with their helmet on ?) AND ......


    TEMPLE ! TEMPLE WAS FUCKING HANGING OUT WITH THEM !!!!! 

    NO FREELANCER HAD THIS COBALT Mark VI ARMOR !! THIS CAN'T BE ANYONE ELSE !

    He is too clear to be washington, too grey to be Wyoming. THIS CAN ONLY BE HIM !!!!

      Yeah, you're right, that could very well be Temple. Wash never said or implied he was actually there. Also, every version of Wash's suit has always had some Yellow on it, even the suit he had during the Project Freelancer season had some yellow on it, albeit only a little, but there was enough to prove he wasn't in that picture (specifically the left arm which is zoomed in on when Carolina looks at York and Herself).

      I just did some digging around about Freelancers. It might be possible that Temple is Agent Utah. In the Season 9 deleted scene he had a Greyish (possibly cobalt, lighter than Wash's suit but darker than Wyomings) Mark VI armor. Also, Utah could have motive too for trying to kill Project Freelancer. Project Freelancer did get him to test a Prototype Domed Energy Shield that didn't work properly and nearly suffocated to death. I would also like to note that Agent Utah was friendly like Doc in Season 9 and 10. Also that Temple seems Friendly, but unhinged, also like Doc (currently). So, it's very plausible that Utah/Temple went mad due to the abuse he received from Project Freelancer.

      So yeah, after digging around, I'm thinking Temple is Agent Utah.

    Considering Illinois left his armour behind, I figure there's three options for him.

    1. He's dead.

    2. He realized the weakness of his armour's lockdown mode and put two and two together when freelancers began to disappear and is currently working to track down whomever is hunting them.

    3. He's temple. Would probably be easy to get the first freelancers into the lockdown room if it was someone they trusted. Someone who couldn't be affected by the lockdown.


    I'm sure there are others who've had the same idea, but I can't be bothered to read through over 900 comments to look confirm that. Personally, I'm hoping for number 2.

    What if all the Blues and Reds and Temple are the AI fragments that Epsilon split up? In season 9 Church imagined versions of all the reds and blues inside the capture unit. And at the end of season 13 Church flickered into a whitish colour that matches Temple. I'm not sure why these AI fragments would suddenly want to get revenge on all freelancers including Wash and Carolina but those are now fragments of a fragment that lived out their life inside Maine's armour so they probably would be pretty messed up.

  • Fenriswolfer

    1 month ago

    Personally i do not think that Temple is a character we ever met in the show. Since he is afraid of Wash and Carolina knowing his voice he probably is from project Freelancer and maybe he is a Freelancer agent. But im sure he's not someone we met. He does not sound like C.T., York, Church etc. And if he used something to change his voice he wouldn't have a reason to be afraid of someone remembering his voice. 

    I think he is new. New to us but not new to Carolina and Washington. 

    Edit: After watching the end a second time, i also think that he might be just a simulation trooper. He knows that he can't beat Wash or Carolina in a fight, he knows the blues and reds and they know him as well as Doc.

    It could be that he and his blue team was just fighting their reds, maybe lost a few people on the way and found out about Project Freelancer similar to our Reds and Blues. And then he wanted revenge for beeing used as better target practice. The Blues and Reds could be on his side or they are just manipulated by him and they trained to become better soldiers, while he waited to get his revenge.

    No one else here just think Temple could be York, i mean it would be ultimate heartbreaking battle for Carolina and York has every right to be mad at project freelancer he lost everything including Carolina who rejected him for betraying project freelancer. I know he's technically dead but come on "Donut" survived death. Is it so hard to think that he could be Temple it would explain why he emphasized that "Carolina didn't recognize him.

      That would be heartwrenching and would make for a great storyline. However, York has been confirmed Dead by Rooster Teeth. Donut however was never actually Confirmed Dead. The Characters only claimed he was dead in the show.
