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. Visitors are known by many names, but each story bears the same marks.

It confounds me how bad this episode was, when the following six were some of the best episodes of the entire show. I suppose they already had their best episodes planned out and saved for last, and they just didn't have enough material for another episode, so they decided to write something absolutely horrific just for kicks.

This is quite possibly the worst episode of The Sarah Connor Chronicles that was made, and possibly the reason for the show not getting a third season. Part of it was the narration. Again. After 24 episodes of the show, almost all of which started with Sarah Connor's melodramatic voice-overs, it gets old. If there's one thing I have learned from this show, it's that you cannot start every episode of a show the same way. The best episodes of season 2 in my opinion--Samson & Delilah, Alison from Palmdale, Brothers of Nablus, Self Made Man, and every episode after this one except To the Lighthouse--did not start with any sort of narration. They had variety, something the other episodes didn't.

Especially this one. This episode was the same drug-induced crap throughout. It was irrelevant, hardly meant anything that I could discern, and the only good parts were the scenes of John and Cameron. If the episode, as I suspect, was supposed to show us Sarah's fears, etc., I think that the scenes of John and Cameron accurately depicted her feelings towards both of them.

That's why it gets a 2 rather than a 1.
