Episode cast overview:
Agent Auldridge


With Sarah now in police custody, John and Cameron hide in a cheap motel. John is concerned about his mother's recent weight loss and thinks that Cameron may be a source of radiation poisoning. Sarah manages to get a message to John via Father Armando Bonilla, the priest they had met in Mexico. Meanwhile, Catherine Weaver asks Ellison to arrange for her to meet John. Despite his mother's advice to leave the city and forget about her, John decides to try and set her free and Cameron agrees to stage a one-person assault at the prison where Sarah is being held. Afterwards, Sarah and John finally meet Weaver face-to-face who, it turns out, has a considerably different agenda than they might have expected. For John however, his future may be changed forever.

User Reviews

Intriguing, but (perhaps inevitably) disappointing
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

There are some great moments in "Born To Run": Catherine Weaver's fight with a T-888 (well, it's over pretty quickly), Cameron's charge into the prison to get Sarah out, the how-far-will-they-go scene with Cameron and John, Weaver's shape-shifting at the end, etc. However, there are so many unanswered questions, unresolved threads, and tantalizing glimpses of things that will never be explained that this episode would be merely borderline satisfying as a season finale; as a SERIES finale, it doesn't cut it by a long shot. Of course that's because it wasn't meant to be a series finale; the series was cancelled before the writers had the chance to finish their story. On the whole, the series had more ups than downs and was very respectful of the original films while trying out new things as well, but if you do intend to watch all 31 episodes, be prepared to create an ending in your mind, because there isn't one on the screen. **1/2 out of 4.
