Did You Know?


As John Connor is reinserting Cameron's chip back inside her head, you can clearly see some wisps of hair sliding up her chip indicating that it is actually a reversed shot of taking the chip out of the head. If there is a wisp on the chip on the immerse it would rather go into loops than be stretched like a rubber band as we can see it in this shot. See more »

Behind Masks
8 February 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Derek finds a Terminator's chip in Cameron's room, he uses it to try to prove to Sarah and John that she cannot be trusted. However she explains that she kept the chip because there are videos that they can use in their fight. They discover the importance of the traffic system and Sarah uses a virus created by John to commit sabotage against the computerized system of Los Angeles. Meanwhile Cromartie is trying to locate John chasing the list of enrolled students.

"Vick's Chip" is another entertaining episode of this series. The mistrust of Derek with Cameron is affecting their relationship in the house. The monologue of Sarah about the uses of masks of people is interesting. My vote is eight.
