The Story Behind This Photo of Summer in Skimpy Outfit

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON July 18, 2014 / 2 COMMENTS


Fans often ask me where the picture below, featuring Summer Glau in a tight fitting sleeveless dress and zebra stripe bra, comes from. And indeed, you could not have seen it in one of Summer's movies or TV shows, for the simple reason that it's from a deleted scene from the third episode of the first season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, titled "The Turk".

The deleted scene from "The Turk" has never been released in any of the bonus features of the DVD/Blu-ray. Had this photo not been released among the production stills for the episode, fans would never have heard of its existence. The scene in question takes place at the begining of the episode, when Sarah and John are discussing in Sarah's bedroom and Cameron walks by. It looks like Josh Friedman was not happy with this piece of clothing and decided to have Cameron walk by in her underwear instead.
 
It's difficult to say exactly why Friedman decided to change the way Cameron is dressed but you'll notice that the original scene was completely different from the one that aired, at least when it comes to Cameron. Find below the production stills from the deleted scene (including the photo above); as you can see, John and Sarah are  sitting on the bed, while Summer is standing in front of the open door, with a broad smile on her face, presumably looking at John and Sarah.

And here are the screencaptures of the scene that aired on TV, taken from the Blu-ray. As you all remember, Cameron is now in her underwear and she's simply walking by, without looking at John and Cameron. You'll also notice that if Cameron has lost her dress in the process, she has kept a zebra stripe bra, only in purple color color this time, instead of turquoise blue. Probably because Cameron is a fashionable Terminator.

What's the difference, you may say? Well, Friedman maybe thought that it would be even more creepy and uncomfortable for John and Sarah if Cameron did not care about the other inhabitant of the house and as if walking around in the house in her underwear was just "business as usual" for Cameron. It reminds me of a scene in the pilot, right after Sarah, John and Cameron escaped Cromartie and Sarah told Cameron - who was pulling out the bullet from her naked body - , "You might want to put those back in their holster", speaking about putting back her bra. Cameron's chip may be the most advanced computer on Earth, she's like a child when it comes to human behaviours.
That, or Friedman thought that fans would be even more pleased to see Cameron in her underwear, in a fan service kind of way.
 
Btw, saying this original scene has never been shown is not entirely correct. While it's true it wasn't in the episode that aired on TV or in the DVD bonuses, you can catch a glimpse of that scene in the video clip for a song titled "Rise Today", by hard rock band Alter Bridge. Indeed, this song was featured in FOX's promo music video for the January 13th, 2008 series premiere of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on FOX.
 
Enjoy the video clip , as well as two screencaps from the short scene below; the "blink and you'll miss it" scene with Thomas Dekker, Sarah Connor and Summer Glau in her original outfit is at 1:27 of the video.

Fell free to give your own interpretation of this change and tell which Cameron outfit (or lack of) you prefer.

Thanks for all the info, I was always really curious about this. Shame we never got to see the other version of that scene. Maybe sometime in the future we all hope, lol.

great work, thanks chris! Friedman was right, the original version simply feels out of place and is too much "jameron" too soon.
