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.
One the way back from Mexico, Sarah is sick. She has a fever. Cameron thinks that she’s preggers. They are 39 miles from Tijuana. Sarah saves a wayward turtle.
Jesse calls him. She asks him to bring a gun. Jesse has got a nice Australian accent. She’s got Charles Fisher stashed. He works for the machines.
Cameron and John are going back to Mexico with thermite to destroy Cromartie’s body. The man that she’s got denies that he is Fisher. He says that he’s Paul Stewart. Derek doesn’t recognize him from the lists.
Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen (born 1980 in Hong Kong) is a television actress. Her mother is Portuguese and her father is Chinese–Norwegian–English. She moved to Australia at the age of 12 and after attending high school in Sydney, Chaves-Jacobsen went to Sydney University where she graduated with majors in philosophy and English literature.
She’s the girl who played Capt Kendra Shaw, of Battlestar Galactica: Razor. I knew I knew her from somewhere.
Jesse is sure that she can make him talk. When she leaves, Derek has a talk with Stewart. He spots a tattoo on his forearm. It’s a tattoo without any hands. It’s prison ink that means a life sentence.
Sarah has strange fever dreams.
Cameron and John don’t find his body. It’s missing. He didn’t walk out but someone took him. They think that it’s Ellison.
Derek calls Cameron. He emails her a photo of Stewart. Cameron doesn’t recognize him. Derek thinks that he’s mistaken about Stewart.
Sarah goes to see Sherman. She tells him about her sleepwalking and nightmares. She needs help. She’s obsessed with three dots. Sherman thinks that it’s related to John and Cameron. Sherman says that nothing will happen in therapy until she decides on being honest.
Cameron has trouble understanding the tortoise and Sarah. John tries to explain about empathy. They are watching Ellison arrive back home. They go and visit him. He doesn’t know what happened to Cromartie’s body. Or so he says. Cameron thinks that he’s lying. Ellison doesn’t change his story. Strangely, Cameron turn Ellison over, just like Sarah did with the tortoise.
Jesse comes back with another person. She says that it’s proof. Both of the prisoners have marks on their shoulders. He’s Charlie Fisher. Jesse wants Derek to beat the hell out of them to get their answers. Derek walks in with the pliers. He starts torturing young Charlie Fisher.
I think that the younger guy is the younger version of the older dude. Derek explains that some people are almost immune to torture. Stewart comes clean. He says that he is Charlie Fisher. Old Fisher wants them to release Young Fisher. He says that he came back for a reward. When the bombs dropped, he was locked up in Pelican Bay in solitary confinement. If he hadn’t been in prison, he wouldn’t have gotten through alive through Judgment Day. He learned what makes people tick.
Young Fisher asks questions of Old Fisher. He knows about the girls in his life and the time off that he wants to take. Jesse doesn’t believe that Old Fisher is weak. Jesse wants him dead. He was there after a raid on a camp where all of the children and adults over 30 were killed. He taught the machines on how to talk to people and how to be people. She was shackled to an operation table. It went on for weeks. Terminators were watching them at all times. He pumped her full of drugs and starved her.
She doesn’t know how she got out. It wasn’t her that Fisher had, it was him. Derek was the one being tortured by Fisher for weeks. Derek doesn’t remember. Jesse shoots Old Fisher before Derek can kill Young Fisher.
John tells Sarah that they couldn’t find Cromartie’s body. Ellison didn’t have it either. It was Sarah’s fault. She didn’t kill the boy at the bowling alley. Cromartie found the boy and led him back to John.
Derek and Jesse bury Old Fisher’s body. Derek doesn’t remember anything about Old Fisher. It was all he could talk about. Jesse thinks that it was a trauma and he’s blocked it. Derek surmises that he came from a future where it didn’t happen and she came from a future where it did. Maybe he changed the future.
Fisher goes back to his job. The DHS is there to question him. Old Fisher accessed the computers last night. He installed a roving back door into the systems. They haven’t been able to dismantle it. They place him in the loony bin.
Ellison meets Mrs. Weaver. He’s got Cromartie’s body in his trunk.
Sarah finds the three dots about Sherman’s name in their basement.
