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.

Fantastic end to a Season of a fantastic show
31 December 2010 | by (The One Way Demon Ride To Hell) – See all my reviews

I give both Season finales a 10 rating purely on the grounds that they were purely excellent. It's the episode where John has a birthday also there are a few continuity flaws with John's birthday like the fact he says it is supposed to be his 24th birthday if it was set in 2007 then that would mean he was born in 1983 when in T2 if you look closely you'll notice he was born in 1985 but so what? it's better than any other action show in the past 5 years, if there is a better Action show made in the past 5 years then I'd like to see THAT (no really I'm not being sarcastic).

Also in this there's the villain of this episode someone who seems to pretty much having people watching everything and nobody knowing. John finds out that Derek knows that Kyle Reese is John's father. James Ellison finds out about that whole Cromartie/Kester thing and then the FBI pretty much gets splattered by Cromartie but spares Ellison (I've watched the whole series and still don't get why).
