Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Fox Mondays 8pm ET/PT
Air date: Nov. 10, 2008
The bloody assault on the rural Mexican police station eerily recalls Arnold Schwarzenegger’s attempt to kill John Connor while Connor was in police custody in the original film.
Cromartie, the cyborg Terminator, told Sarah that she and Cameron were making mistakes. Then he’s the one who walks into a building (the local church) where he can be targeted from multiple positions above him. That’s just a fatal error (as it turns out), regardless of his mission priority.
Sarah wanted John to stop seeing Riley because she felt their dating put the Connors and Riley in danger. Sarah wasn’t able to convince John, so Cameron, John’s cyborg protector played by 27-year-old Summer Glau, gave it a shot. Cameron walked up to John’s bedroom, found him lying in bed, removed her jacket (sleeveless top) and joined him. “Why are you taking your jacket off?” asked John.
“You don’t get hot.”
“Yes I do.”
No, she doesn’t. She’s a machine. John went on to ask if she was in bed with him just to “weird out” his mom. Cameron said no and then pressed the Riley issue. John acquiesced, Cameron thought, so she went downstairs to tell Sarah the good news. “I don’t like the way you convince John,” said Sarah, or something to that effect.
“I get results.” Well, not this time. John sneaked out, leading to the Mexico showdown. Let’s see if Cameron tries that again. It actually was a little weird.
