Sac Federici
Justin Tuck
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

Outstanding Season 2 Opener
9 September 2008 | by (Bradford, PA) – See all my reviews

While I enjoyed the rather abbreviated Season 1 immensely, I find that Season 2 opened with a bang (literally) and was both exciting and emotionally intense. There are some great scenes between the main characters that are heart wrenching. The action is relentless and the chemistry between the cast is up several notches. A new character is introduced in this episode. While I don't want to give anything away, suffice it to say you will think of the second Terminator film when you see this character in an awesome scene at the final act. Everything from the cinematography, directing, acting, story and special effects in one episode blows away the previous season in its entirety. If you already liked the show from Season 1's 8 episodes, I think you will like it even more with season 2.
