Storyline

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

Excellent first season and opening episode of season 2
8 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The acting of the principals is first rate. The dark humor as regards Cameron's character is well done. Lena Headley did a fine turn in 300 and is one of the best in TV for her role as Sarah Connor. The action is incredible but the discussions and dramatic tension between the characters in the interim scenes is revelatory and significant to the plot. The program is one hour long but it moves quickly and you feel the time flew by. The actor who plays the FBI agent is low key and intense. He emotes the feelings of a man coming to grips with a reality that is too hard to embrace at first but reacts in a believable way to the epiphany of the truths told by Sarah Connor.
