While Derek Reese is recovering from his wounds, Cameron tries to recover the missing cyborg hand to ensure all remnants of the Terminator have been destroyed. Sarah learns that it is now in the possession of the FBI, specifically Special Agent James Ellison. She breaks into Ellison's apartment to find that he has extensive information about her, including videotaped interviews from when she was hospitalized. Derek continues to see Cameron as a threat and tells Sarah to make her leave. Agent Ellison visits Sarah's one-time psychiatrist, but faces a surprising reception. Cameron gets a lead on the location of the Turk, but not without a cost. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The title of the episode, "The Demon Hand", is an allusion to a short story Harlan Ellison wrote which was, in part, the inspiration for James Cameron in forming the story of the original Terminator movie. See more »


Cameron goes into the evidence room at the police station. Despite there being many long rows of shelves with boxes on them, she walks far into the room and chooses the correct box, in the dark, without looking around, or without any other help or clue as to where to look. See more »


Sarah Connor: I never wanted you to see that tape - I was gonna destroy it. But since you did, did you notice the date? The date on the tape - June 8, 1997... D'you know that date?

Souls and Hands
7 February 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Cameron dresses up like a police officer and seeks in the evidence room of a precinct the hand of the Terminator destroyed by Sarah. She discovers that FBI Agent James Ellison has the possession of the evidences. Agent Allison watches videotapes of Sarah being interviewed in the mental institution Pescadero State Hospital and he seeks out Dr. Peter Silberman. Meanwhile Sarah sends Cameron to find Dmitri Shipkov, who stole and might have the Turk, while she breaks into Allison's apartment looking for the hand; she finds a collection of videotape and steals a particularly one. When John sees the tape, he finds the weak moment of his mother's life.

I liked very much "The Demon hand", one of the best episodes of this series. The discussions about souls and weaknesses have good lines for a TV show. The story is engaging, and Cameron shows a total lack of feelings when she leaves Dmitri's room. In the end, it seems that Derek Reese has a point with his mistrust with Cameron. My vote is eight.
