With Derek Reese severely injured, John calls on Sarah's former fiancé Charlie Dixon, an EMT, to provide medical assistance. Sarah finds herself having to explain where she has been for the last 8 years and just who Derek is and where he is from. In flashbacks (of a sort) we learn of Derek's life in the future as a resistance fighter, his relationship with John Connor, and of his travel back in time with a team sent to help Sarah and John. Derek doesn't know that his brother Kyle is John's father. Written by

If Sarah's blood-type is O-negative, then it is impossible for her to have a son that is AB-negative. Assuming that Kyle was AB-negative like Derek, then John could only be A- or B-negative; not even O-negative. Also, either John or Sarah should have been able to give Derek her blood, as she is a near universal donor, Derek is a near universal acceptor and they all have the same Rh factor. See more
On the night we first met, John's father, Kyle Reese, told me words I remember to this day. He meant them as a warning. I think of them as words to live by. He told me of an apocalypse yet to come. Like a Pandora's box, he unpacked every horror, every evil, every dark thing that haunts our future. He also left me an unborn son, to whom he bequeathed what remained in the box after the nightmares fled: hope.
