Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Detective Kaplan


When their house is broken into and all their money and fake ID's stolen, Sarah, Cameron, and Derek go in search of them before they land in the wrong hands. Derek continues to sneak away to spend time with his lost love Jesse. Meanwhile, John continues to becomes more alienated and disillusioned with the current situation which stems from his killing of Sarkisian, and continues to seek company with Riley. Also, Ellison finds himself arrested for a murder charge in which a look-alike Terminator attempts to duplicate him, and Catherine flexes more of her power to clear him. Elsewhere, the Terminator Cromartie is back on the trail to find John when a discarded photo of Cameron surfaces which leads him to the young runaway, Jody, who briefly knew Cameron during her memory-lapse episode.

Did You Know?


The Bible story supposed by the shows' writers to have been set in Nablus took place in Shechem (Genesis Ch 34). Nablus is a modern city on the site of Napolis, a Roman output built near the ruins of biblical Shechem. While today's geography tends to mix the two terms Shechem and Nablus, the name Nablus does not appear in the Bible. To show a supposedly orthodox Jew (albeit one who deals in stolen property and other crimes) using the term Nablus is farcical. Cameron or anyone else quoting Scripture and using the term Nablus makes no sense. See more »


Cameron Phillips: [about Riley] She's a security risk.
John Connor: Really? She's never tried to kill me... You know that this has nothing to do with Riley, or with the rules, or the security of this house. You are pissed off, because I found someone I actually like spending time with, and it's not *you*.
Sarah Connor: You think I don't want you to have a normal life?
John Connor: No. I don't.
Sarah Connor: [grabbing John by his arm] Hey! We didn't choose this, John, it chose us. And there's nothing either of us can do about it. My job is to protect you. And you can ...

After their house is robbed Sarah is very worried; not only did the thief steal their diamonds they also stole documents that could lead back to them. There is a secondary concern too; the house was meant to be secure but is appears that John's new girlfriend, Riley, may have forgotten to set the alarm when she left that night. Sarah and Cameron set about tracking the thieves and when they are found we will see once again just how cold and logical Cameron is. Meanwhile Agent Ellison has a very unusual visitor; somebody who looks just like him; a terminator of course. Luckily for Ellison the impostor is killed but his saviour is another surprise; Cromartie. It isn't all good lick for him though; the impostor was seen committing a murder leading to Ellison's arrest. Cromartie is still looking for the Connors and he has a lead; a picture of Cameron from when she had an episode and thought she was human.

This was a pretty good episode; it was great seeing Cameron in action again; I'm pleased the creators didn't prevent her killing like Arnie's character in 'Terminator 2': a terminator who can't kill is like a cobra without fangs! Ellison's story was interesting too; why would a terminator want to kill him, another, Cromartie, save him and a third, Catherine Weaver, want to employ him? The last of these questions is the most interesting and hopefully it will be answered fully before the season is over.
