Trivia

Andy refers to the original Turk, created in 1770, as an automaton, which the device was purported to be. However, since the mid-nineteenth century, the Turk has been known to be merely a magic illusion, with a human being sitting within the machine playing chess, rather than the machine itself.

Quotes

Sarah Connor: What were you gonna do, be a hero? Get your name in the papers, your face?
John Connor: Isn't that what I'm supposed to be? A hero? Isn't that who I am? If it's just gonna sit inside me, if it's just gonna sit in my gut, then what are we doing? What's the point? Why don't we just give it to them if we're gonna act like them.

No One Dies in Vain
21 January 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While John and Cameron adapt themselves in the new high-school, Sarah visits Terissa Dyson at Myles' grave with pictures of the possible inventor of SkyNet. Sarah identifies the former intern of Cyberdyne Andy Goode. Sarah discovers that Andy is working as cell phone salesman and she visits him in the store where he works. She accepts his invitation for dinner and finds that he has not concluded his computer science bachelorship, but he has been developing a powerful computer at home to play chess. Cameron has difficulties to understand the human emotions and John is affected by the attitude of a suicidal teenager. Meanwhile the Terminator seeks out a scientist and helps him in his research to regenerate his skin. Agent James Ellison arrives out of the blue in the investigation of a killing and but the agent responsible for the case restrains him.

In this episode, Sarah tries to stop the creation of SkyNet destroying the invention of a guy with great potential. John questions his fate of hero after being contained by Cameron and not saving a girl from jumping off the school roof. The Terminator regenerates his tissue with the support of a scientist, but the best part of the show is Cameron trying to understand the human feelings and emotions. My vote is seven.
