Storyline

Sarah, John, and Cameron investigate Dr. Sherman, a therapist who may have a connection to Skynet's construction, while Catherine Weaver, revealed to be a T-1001 liquid metal Terminator impersonating the real late Catherine Weaver, also pays a visit to Dr. Sherman for his help to control her daughter Savannah, living in constant fear of her "mother". Meanwhile, a mysterious woman from Derek's past, named Jesse, suddenly shows up having time-traveled back after going AWOL. Also, another mysterious female terminator arrives in the present to target another individual. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah Connor: My father slept with a gun under his pillow. There was no pill for his sickness, no medicine to ease his mind. He left blood and sweat and part of his soul in a foreign land. My father never talked to me about the war he fought. He never talked to anyone. Ever vigilant, ever silent. I never thought I'd follow in his footsteps.

Meat the Parent
2 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the best episode so far. Leaning more on philosophy rather than action (bar the comedy fight at the end). We see a machine - Catherine Weaver - observing and practising a little humanity and humility as she tries to attend to her foster duties with the help of a psychiatrist.

Dr Sherman is on the Connors' person of interest list. So they do a little reconnaissance in the guise of family therapy, only to discover they have a few issues of their own.

Looks as if Derek is to finally get a little more of his own story time as new character Jesse arrives from the future. What's her mission?
