While John continues to have more difficulty coming to terms with a student who committed suicide and felt he was powerless to prevent it, he becomes separated from Sarah and Cameron while they're searching for some stolen cargo when he's accidentally trapped in the back of an armored truck loaded with enough metal to build 500 endoskeletons. But instead, John finds another Terminator with an unknown mission. Meanwhile, the murder of a plastic surgeon that Agent Ellison is investigating leads him to a surprising suspect, while Cromartie, the terminator who followed Sarah, John, and Cameron into the future, continues to rebuild his bio image into another person.

A major plot point in the episode involves Cameron discovering that Cromartie's head went through time, too. She discovers this while viewing news footage taken soon after Sarah, John and Cameron arrived in 2007. However, previous episodes established that Cromartie's head arrived sometime after the trio left the scene, so it should not have been visible on the videotape. See more »

Flashes of brilliance
6 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great 4th episode!

I'm psyched that they've kept the quality high so far.

The formula elements were fine, the Sarah Connor voice-over was above average (meditating on the apt story of the Golem), and there was a nicely scary bit.

Don't wake the sleeping terminator!

The final scene at home was handled with some subtlety, too, with John being nonchalant about his scary day and then noticing his hand shake when he was alone.

I guess this was all done before the writers' strike, because someone good is definitely on the job here.
