Agent Norgaard


In the aftermath of the jeep explosion, Sarah and John are taken prisoner by Sarkissian and his henchman. Cameron also survives but as a result of a brain malfunction, she now believes her mission is to kill John. John manages to kill Sarkissian to prevent him from killing Sarah, only to have the two of them flee from Cameron's rampage. Sarah and John take refuge in a nearby church and must decide how to stop Cameron. Meanwhile, Catherine Weaver is a mysterious international businesswoman and CEO of ZeiraCorp who purchases the late Andy Goode's Turk computer system for $300,000 and she clearly has plans to use it for her own purposes. Elsewhere, FBI Agent Ellison is the sole survivor of the failed attempt to arrest Cromartie. He tells all to his superiors about what happened, but is put on administrative leave. Also, Derek forces Charley to team up with him to find Sarah and John before Cameron does. Written by garykmcd

Epic episode!
9 September 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When I found out that they were going to do a Terminator series I was horrified. The third Terminator movie was terrible and nowhere near as good as the previous movies. How on earth could you justify a TV show with almost the same premise as the third movie. The pilot episode was pretty good only did not do anything new. A couple of episodes following the pilot were slow and uninteresting. But then gradually they put in some developments that made the show more promising. Casting Brian Austin Green was a brilliant move since he really brought some depth to John's character and the show. Through him we finally get some answers about John's future. Now having seen the first episode of the second season there is almost no doubt in my mind that this show has improved. Who would have thought that "Sarah Chronicles" could have come so far especially after a somewhat uneven first season. This episode immediately starts of with the cliffhanger ending and gave it an outcome that I personally did not expect. This development surely will provide more thrilling moments in future. Combined with the addition of a new character gives this show the much needed edge. It has to be said that it seems that there is a higher budget. Which is the best thing that could happen for this show. "Sarah Chronicles" is improving each episode. I only hope that they can maintain this high standard.
