Storyline

After finding a clue to one of the dead assassins after them, Sarah, John, Cameron, and Derek locate another T-888 who attempts to kill Savannah Weaver whom they are forced to abduct, at the cost of Derek's life. As the paths of Sarah and Catherine's finally begin to cross, Sarah learns about Ellison's work at Zeira Corp and about the identity of 'John Henry'. While Catherine sends out Ellison to find Savannah, she becomes more determined to keep the existence of John Henry and her work a secret, but also finally learns about the existence of Sarah Connor as well as John. When Sarah requests a meeting with Catherine (with nobody still aware of her being the elusive T-1001), a persistent FBI agent becomes determined to find the abductor of Savannah.

Goofs

During the role playing game, when John Henry encounters the Mind Flayer, he rolls the twenty sided die and claims to have rolled a "20". However, the 1 is clearly visible as one of the side faces showing to the camera. The "20" is on the opposite side to the "1" (all opposite faces of a twenty sided die add up to 21). So he has definitely not rolled a "20". In fact, from the angle of the two faces shown (the "1" and "19"), John Henry has rolled a "7". See more »

7 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to say, that I'm quite perterbed with how anti-climactic Derek's death was, but I have a theory why they did it the way they did.

When you think about it, Derek is a hardened "warrior" in the future war. He's one of the best soldiers there is, and there's a good reason he's survived as long as he has. The writers do things like this, to remind us that humans are frail beings in the war between man and machine, and no amount of training makes them invulnerable and prepared for every contingency.

When you analyze the scene, the machine came around the corner with gun raised, whereas Derek came around the corner with gun in the ready position, aimed down. The machine had split-second reaction time, whereas humans...well...we make mistakes... All that being said, the outcome was "realistic" if not appealing...
