John explains Moore's Law to Derek: "The guy who found it at Intel said that every two years [the] number of transistors on a computer chip doubles. Thirty years ago it was an observation, now it is a law." Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore first observed that transistor counts had doubled *every* year in a 1965 paper - that's *forty-three* years before the events in this episode. The term "Moore's law" was coined around 1970, *thirty-eight* years before the events in this episode. Only in 1975 did Moore alter his projection to a doubling the number of transistors every two years. That's closer to the 30 years John says, but by that time it was no longer "an observation".

Sarah Connor: [narrating] When John was little, he used to sleep with his hand under my chin. At night I'd lay awake watching him, calm, peaceful, happy. I wanted to freeze time, and let my son live in that moment forever.

Sarah Connor: [narrating] But you can't freeze time. You can't protect your children from the future that awaits them.

Happy Birthday

Sarah is contacted by the dangerous Sarkissian, a man that claims to have the Turk and asks five hundred thousand dollars for it. Meanwhile Agent James Ellison finds that the Cromartie is posing of an FBI agent and he leads a team to arrest him. Derek gives a very special birthday gift to John.

"What He Beheld" is a great conclusion of Season one and the best episodes of this season. The story is engaging and the paradoxical encounter of John with Kyle and Derek is the greatest moment of this show. The discovery of James Ellison will certainly give a twist in the next season. My vote is nine.
