Goofs

When Derek is at Greenway's house, he sees that Greenway has supposedly hung himself. At the same time, he is on the phone with Sarah, who suspects that something is wrong with Greenway. She notices that the Greenway standing in front of her does not have the incision mark on his right arm that he showed her during their conversation in the bar. A brief flashback shows the incision mark, and then it cuts to Derek. The "real" Greenway is showed hanged, and does not have the incision mark either. See more »

Quotes

[Nelson hands Sarah the clothes she's been wearing before being decontaminated]
Sarah Connor: These are the same clothes. Aren't they crapped up?
Nelson: It turns out they're not. Positive reading must have been a hiccup.
Sarah Connor: A hiccup?
Nelson: [smirks] Yeah. Sometimes these scanners have a mind of their own.

I like this show. i really do. But this second episode of the second season was all over the place.

cuts and wounds seem to heal from shot to shot- almost as fast as wolverine while others don't.

conversations continually seem to jump over unspoken information.

scenes to connect one part of the plot to another seem and feel like they are missing.

Gaps in plot and action that goes against established lore.

I'm checking the older episodes and from what i've seen they haven't used this writer/ director before. Lets hope they don't use them again or this series will soon fall by the wayside.

the worst leap was how an older model terminator apparently copied someone once they were terminated. it seemed they were setting it up so we were under the impression that it was the t-1000 but nope- just a run-of-the-mill terminator. how did they have surgery and look perfect in a matter of a few hours? i GUESS we are to assume the terminator was studying greenway for a while and had the surgery done a while ago- and just moved in and took over on the faithful day? just a guess though since there is nothing in the story to suggest what was going on.

Just terrible and really strains suspension of disbelief.

worst episode of the series so far
