I'm partial to the "Already somewhere pretty cold, traveling on a <vehicle>" scenario. Alternately a "Funeral just finished and now they're going to teleport you to the frozen north and some weird Borealis-interference will screw things up again."

Judith Mossman was able to travel to where she acquired the hidden footage fairly quickly after the end of Ep1, and I doubt Kleiner's teleporter did it. So either there's a pure overland train/car route to this ships-and-icebergs frozen-north-area, or somebody's got a form of air travel still working.

Like, say, the HIND in the hangar where Eli bought it?

Which obviously wasn't used by Mossman :)

I bring up the teleport angle because the Combine still has a significant airborne presence, and already attacked the hangar once. It wouldn't be the first time that the HL series pulls a "so close and yet so far" when it comes to vehicles and escaping/proceeding. (And I hear it's an even bigger trend in L4D...)

They could do the intro in the helicopter and have you focus on basic aiming, shooting down advisors before they get close enough to pull it out of the sky, but I doubt advisors would put themselves in that kind of danger, and the first five minutes shouldn't have any gunship/attack-copter battles.

I still think Adrian Shepard will come back as G-Man's pocket mercenary to kick some Combine ASS.

You and Dr. Magnusson fly the helicopter and chase down the fleeing Advisors to take revenge (in the style of a classic arcade shooter).

Really, I want it to be a surprise. And The return of Adrian Shepard may not fit in too well, but it would be epic.

"Subject Shephard. Status Detained. Further evaluation pending" -> Crazy Borealis Time/Space Warp

Or they may just leave some HL1 HECU equipment on a frosted-over desk and leave it at that.

You walk outside the building where Eli dies.

The parking lot you see blows up suddenly.

Aperture labs test subject lands at your feet.

:smt023 If they are gonna use l4d's hooked engine -> no thanks to the blood splashing of the combine's disappeared arms. Yep. Combines come and shoot the place down while Alyx just cries after Eli...

I expect we'll see Alyx being gang-banged by a horde of Vortigaunts, all of them flying on pink elephant helicopters. Because the portal gun has fused with the gravity gun and created the IMPROBABILITY GUN, which makes the almost impossible likely to happen. No pun intended. :-D

The new deaf character valve planned will come. And we'll see alyx, and start flying the helicopter by the time 5 minutes is up.

I'm pretty upset with you right now. The MI-8 doesn't even almost look like Hind.
