Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah Connor: Midnight is the witching hour - if you believe that kind of thing, and most people won't admit it if they do. Midnight is the time when a door opens from our world into the next, and we are visited by dark spirits of the shadowlands. The incubus, the succubus, the old hag.

Absolute Mind Trip
9 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

One of my favorites of the series, the title character makes a huge leap forward in character development. The question of the value of human life is brought in the fore again. It portrays clearly a shift for Sarah on the scale of morality that all the characters in the Connor household dynamic sit on. The need for vigilance and internal pressure on Sarah is so well illustrated in the quote from Hamlet that the title is drawn from: "Some must watch, while some must sleep: so runs away the world."

This episode is most definitely one that is much better when watched a second time. Much of the surprising content that rewards the audience's attention to detail is hidden in things like some of the props, the costume choices, the way dialogue in a few scenes parallels previous episodes, and the minor shifts the characters have taken toward similarity to each other.
