Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles S02E01 (Fox)

The Sarah Connor character was made popular in the Terminator series of movies, with the second one being the most memorable by far. James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton made this a great movie to watch when I was a teenager back in 1991. This was also the first time that we saw the T-1000, made out of liquid metal. It was the first movie to successfully combine CGI with real characters in a movie.

I wasn’t surprised that this series was renewed. There is something about Terminators that is tantalizing. The story is getting better. Cromartie is alive and well and using Ellison to find Sarah. Cameron’s reverted to her termination protocols. She tries to kill John and Sarah. I liked how this episode ended. I loved seeing another T-1000.

I thought that this was a great episode. Filled with ups and downs, the characters try and regroup but things just break down because they had more than one terminator going after them. It was filled with action.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Cameron got blown up by Sarcasian. It wasn’t enough to deactivate her. Sarcasian and his goon are taking Sarah and John. Cameron inadvertently starts a fire while trying to save her charges. She comes up and her old programming is activated. She almost terminates John. They jump out of the window and she is blown away by another explosion. She is still not deceased.

Cromartie leaves Agent Ellison alive. Nixon comes to find the carnage. Ellison says that the dead actor is the killer. John and Sarah get in an accident and flee the scene. Nixon comes to Sarah’s place. He’s glad to see that Sarah isn’t dead. Derek is there posing as a firefighter. They meet up in Nixon’s truck. They hear a report involving a hit-and-run not far away. They know it’s Sarah.

Mr. Walsh has got the Turk. He’s reporting to a woman with a Scottish accent. She says that Bobby Fisher is dead. Her name is Mrs. Weaver. She calls for a meeting with her department heads.

Cameron starts to repair herself. She’s following Derek and Nixon. John and Sarah ask for sanctuary at a church.

Mr. Walsh delivers the Turk to Mrs. Weaver. Ellison is being questioned in the incident report. He’s got to take six weeks of paid leave. Cameron has followed the blood trail to the church. The priest says that there is no one here. Cameron will look around. They shock her and John is trying to take out her processor. They aren’t fast enough and have to flee. They aren’t smart or fast enough to escape her. Cameron manages to flip their car over. They are able to trap her in-between two cars. She tries to lie her way out of it, but John disconnects her. They call Nixon.

The adults want to destroy Cameron, but John puts her chip back in after he’s repaired it. She reverts to her usual persona. She overrides her termination protocols.

Ellison finds Cromartie at Sarah’s house. Ellison thinks that he’s been left alive to lead Cromartie to Sarah.

Weaver informs her department heads that she’s drafting people for a special project named Babylon.

John cuts his hair and they change actors. It looks like that, or his hair was just so bad that he totally looks different.

It turns out that Mrs. Weaver is a T1000, the liquid metal type.
