When everyone goes to the hills of LA to look for the woman, Cameron holds up an actual photograph to match the topography. Why go through all the trouble of printing the picture from the chip when she is able to store the image in her memory just by looking at it? After all, moments ago, we saw Cromartie do this when trying to match the image of John with the guys in the shower. See more »

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.

Title (Brazil): "Vick's Chip"
