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. Actually, it’s been revealed that she’s a T-1001.
Derek is talking to Sarah. She breaks up and he comes upon a pregnant woman screaming. He was sent by Sarah. The daughter is named Lauren and looks like she’s been in a war. A cyborg has been tracking them for six months. The lady is Lauren’s mom.
Six months earlier, Cameron and Sarah arrived at the Fields’ house. Lauren pulls a gun on Sarah. They are on the target list. A machine is coming to kill them. Cameron disarms David who’s taken the gun with one swipe. They evacuate them. They hit a car on the way out. A terminator is in it. Cameron engages it. Sarah leads the family away. Sarah arrives back at the Fields place. David has been shot in the leg. Sarah wants to find out which one of them the terminator is after. But they don’t know. Sarah plans on setting a trap. Lauren says that her dad is hiding something. He’s been working with Simdyne Cybernetics. He’s been doing some illegal banking operations for Simdyne. Sarah is destroying the house. Sarah boobytraps the doorhandle with electricity. Anne was making a call. She lies to Sarah about it. Roger is coming to see them. Anne rushes out. She has been having an affair with Roger. Roger is a neighbour. David and Anne argue. As Roger sprouts some nonsense, the dog starts to bark. Cameron is flung through the window. She’s offline. The terminator kills the dog and comes nearer. Roger runs away. Davis decides to take the terminator on with a .38. The terminator doesn’t want him. He’s not the target. Anne says that she’s pregnant. David doesn’t know, it’s Roger’s. Sarah stashes Lauren in a cupboard, knowing that the terminator won’t kill her. Cameron is online again and she gets Lauren out of the cupboard. They go after Sarah and Anne. David arrives and runs the terminator over.
In the present, the woman is doing better. The bullet went through. David is most probably dead. Lauren says that the machine found them because she called a friend. It traced them. Anne is getting her wounds looked at by Derek. She’s worried about Lauren. Derek knows that Lauren was too smart to call a friend. Anne did. Anne says that Roger is dead now as well as David. Anne says that Lauren and the baby matter. Anne isn’t doing well. Derek implies that he knows Lauren’s baby sister. Her name is Sydney. Sydney has got a blood immunity to a disease. It helps them save a lot of lives in the future. Anne is fully dilated. She gives birth to Sydney. She dies after seeing her. Derek offers Lauren to stay with them, but after he makes a call to Sarah, she’s gone.
In 2027 at Serrano Point, Derek is having an argument with his commander. He wants to send in a converted terminator to get the survivor so that they can beat a plague. Derek wants to go in himself. At the Eagle Rock Bunker, Derek arrives with a gas mask. He won’t last an hour there. He finds a pregnant woman who looks dead. He takes off his mask as he bursts back out. He meets Jesse for the first time. She has a gun on him. Her party picked up an SOS. She came to check it out. They have a nuclear sub and a 888 captaining it doing supply runs from Perth. They go back inside to search for the survivor. Sydney is the girl that they find in the bunker. She says that the gas masks won’t help. They are already infected. Jesse is drinking a lot of water. It’s a symptom. Sydney says that the infection starts as a dry mouth. Jesse doesn’t have much time. Fluid is also built up in the lungs. Derek, Jesse and Syndey get back to Serrano Point. Derek says that he came out of Eagle Rock because he was waiting for Jesse. They are both given the vaccine. One of the techs is Lauren, Sydney’s sister.
