Josh Friedman assembled especially for the convention a four minute sizzle reel, featuring significant spoilers from the second season’s final six episodes. This action-packed clip was screened in front of the 3,500 fans in attendance.
The final images of the teaser trailer (was it a coincidence?) were heavily discussed among the TSCC fandom when fans in attendance mentioned John was lying on top of Cameron, and it looked like they were about to kiss (Of course we know better but one has to remember that the video was not available back then).
Check out the sizzle reel unveiled at WonderCon 2009:
And read what Blogger Charlie Jane Anders had to say about it for iO9.com:
The final six episodes of Sarah Connor season two will be a crazy ride, judging from the clip reel we saw. And producer Josh Friedman explained exactly what went wrong with the lackluster two most recent episodes.
And then there's just some bugfuck action, with Summer Glau walking and shooting with her face torn up. And some glimpses of Jesse on board her nuclear submarine (with the Terminator captain) in the future, and someone talking about her being in a tin can under the ocean. And Sarah Connor defibrillating herself. And lots and lots of gunplay. And Sarah holding a Terminator arm. And lots and lots of people crying (including Riley) and then some voices singing the Scottish folk song "Donald Where's Your Trousers", including a child's voice.
And then there's a shot of John Connor in bed with Cameron - and John is lying on top of Cameron, and it looks like they're about to kiss. Dude!
I remember the first time I saw this video in 2009 and the chills I got in anticipation of what was to come. I was totally psyched up for the final six episodes and I wasn't disappointed. My favorite episodes from season 2 has always been, Samson & Delilah, Allison from Palmdale, Self Made man, and the last 6 episodes of the season. Seeing that sizzle reel has done a lot to remind me of the passion and excitement of seeing each individual episode of the entire series. I wish there were programs on TV now that made me equally excited at seeing it each week. Though I dare say TSCC is a rare gem in network TV. Before it arrived, I had just about given up on there ever being anything good on TV. Then it was here, and it felt like I had barely got to know it, when it was gone. Which is why I'm working now to bring it back, but even if it doesn't come back, those 31 episodes on DVD represent some of the best that network TV has to offer. I am happy to have been a part of the experience.
