Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Police Officer


Having jumped forward in time to 2007, Sarah, John, and Cameron are lying low until they can arrange for false identities. Sarah visits an old friend, Enrique, who once was an expert at creating false identities but he has given up that business to his nephew. Unknown to Sarah is that he has taken up other interests. Despite his mother's insistence that he stay in the house, John goes exploring and visits his mother's old boyfriend, Charley Dixon. Cameron also tells Sarah another very good reason why the jump forward in time was necessary. Written by garykmcd

When Cameron is battling with the other terminator they both go out the window, hitting the wall of the adjacent building and falling to the ground. Look carefully as they hit the wall and you can see it move. See more »


Sarah Connor: [end of episode narration] "Know thyself." John once told me it's inscribed over the entrance to the temple of Apollo. The entire quote is "Know thyself and thou shall know all the mysteries of the gods and the universe." That's quite a mouthful. My version is this: "Know thyself because what else is there to know?" People hide secrets. Time is a lie. The material world can disappear in an instance. It has, and it will again. Our identities change. Our names, the way we look, how we act and ...

Know Yourself
14 January 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Three days after their jump to 2007, John is completely bored at home while Sarah and Cameron are seeking new identities. They visit the forger Enrique, an old acquaintance of Sarah, but the man tells that he is retired and indicates his nephew Carlos that demands twenty thousand dollars for the business. Meanwhile John visits Charley Dixon in spite of Sarah's recommendation to stay at home. Later the trio gets the necessary money for the IDs in the safe of a group sent from John from the future to help Sarah but eliminated by a terminator. Cameron explains the fate of Sarah if they have stayed in her timeline. When Sarah and Cameron overhear a conversation of Carlos with another gangster, they suspect that Enrique is a snitcher, and Cameron takes a decision against Sarah's will.

The second episode is actually a sequel of the "Pilot", with Sarah, John and Cameron settle themselves down in 2007 and getting new identities. The travel of the Cromartie's skull to the future apparently contradicts the explanation of time travel of the first episode; there are people studying the lines and trying to explain it, but at least for an average viewer like me it is not clear and seems to be a plot hole indeed. The relationship and attitudes of Sarah with Cameron are ungrateful and unjustifiable. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Gnothi Seauton"
