Storyline

Now on the run, Sarah stashes John in a safe house with the only person she believes she can rely on: Charley Dixon. While Sarah frequently flashes back to training a young John in the jungles of South America, she soon learns that she has been implanted with a tracking device. Meanwhile, Cameron and Derek struggle to work together after she reveals a big secret about Jesse and of her mission, and they soon are targeted by unseen assassins working for a mysterious third party. Elsewhere at Zeira Corp, Catherine Weaver's effort for Project Babylon is at risk when Cromartie/John Henry is compromised by an unseen hacker and Ellison tries to get to the bottom of who or what is trying to sabotage the project which evidence points to another T-888 Terminator out there.

Goofs

Charley serves John a second helping of his bouillabaisse, although John previously has eaten only one spoonful of the soup and could hardly have finished his first bowl. Also, when Sarah becomes interested in the soup a little later, Charley pretends that it had run out, although John's bowl is still left untouched on the table. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah Connor: When John was a child, the legends of the jungle were his fairytales. His favorite was the story of El Viejo del Monte - the old man of the forest, a merciless hunter who killed every animal in his path. El Viejo didn't eat his prey. He left it behind to rot in the soil. To teach him a lesson, the gods turned him into a simisco, half-animal, half-man. He was condemned to defend the jungle for all eternity. This was El Viejo's punishment, this was his curse: to forever be vigilant, ...

An old friend
21 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having decided that it is time to move on the protagonists split up on the way to the say house; with Derek and Cameron retrieving various items from storage while Sarah and John take a detour to visit an old friend who is now living in a lighthouse. This detour isn't just because Sarah wants to see Charlie again; she no longer trusts Derek and Cameron and wants to get John with somebody she trusts because she thinks the breast cancer she was destined to die from has finally arrived. Derek and Cameron's time together leads to her revealing that Jesse had been carrying his child but had lost it; something Derek never knew; he didn't have much time to assimilate the news though as the two of them are ambushed as they drove along and he was captured. In a third storyline John Henry's AI is infected by a worm which turns out to have come from an intelligence he describes as his 'brother'!

After the action of the previous episode it looked as if this one would be somewhat quieter; indeed for the first two thirds the episode was very much character driven; then towards the end we get quite a bit of action in both of the main story lines. It was nice to see Dean Winters return as the Connors' friend Charlie; there were some nice scenes between him and Lena Headey; especially the one where she reveals that she thinks she has cancer. There was a nice degree of emotion as well as action in Cameron and Derek's story as he learns that he could have been a father. The third story strand was also fascinating as it initially looked as though John Henry's episode might have been caused by young Savannah Weaver's suggestion that they could 'change the rules' but later became apparent that the cause was more sinister. Garret Dillahunt does a fine job in the role; I think he does better now he is playing the almost childlike John Henry rather than Cromartie the unstoppable killing machine. The ending leaves several questions hanging in the air which left me looking forward to discovering what happens next.
