Fate is changed forever on the explosive season finale episode! The Connors come face-to-face with Weaver in a confrontation that shakes John to the core and changes his reality forever. Nothing will be the same.

Plot Danglers

John insists that he rescues his mother but is denied by Cameron, refusing to let him risk his life. He then asks for a laptop to research if unshielded nuclear power sources can cause cancer. They are later visited by Chola with fake IDs and a message from Sarah to not come rescue her. Afterward, Ellison comes, informing them of Weaver's desire to meet with them. However, John refuses to do so without Sarah. The Terminator that was after Savannah Weaver changes objectives to hunting John, having seen Sarah on the news. He visits a gun shop with the intent of purchasing silencers but the proprietor says that he doesn't sell those. The T-888 bribes him into being directed to a seller who does. Once the T-888 has acquired the silencer, it prepares to capture Sarah. However, once he kills a guard, Weaver appears. The Terminator attempts to shoot her but the bullets reveal her liquid metal nature. She then retaliates by throttling one of her arms against her foe and connected the other to a fuse box, electrocuting the T-888. She then removes its chip, which John Henry determines that the chip inflamed upon air contact. The priest the Connors met previously, Father Bonilla, is summoned to the jail, who is very skeptical over what he saw with Cameron. He agrees to tell everyone the truth. Aulridge expresses belief in Sarah's story, having gotten several calls from people who confirm that she and John are younger than they are suppose to be but she is unmoved by this. He also asks if she knows what happened to Danny Dyson, who was missing. Cameron begins a single assault on the jail, making several intentional misses at the guards but losing the skin over her left eye in the process. John Henry assists her by remotely unlocking all the jail cells, causing a prison breakout. In the confusion, Sarah escapes and plans to meet with Weaver. Cameron goes into into the basement of ZeiraCorp to destroy John Henry, but seems hesitant due to his offer to "join us". Meanwhile, the Connors meet with Weaver. She reveals that she knows that John is destined to save humanity and knows about Cameron's presence downstairs. Suddenly, the Kaliba HK Drone crashes into the office. Weaver reveals her true nature to shield the Connors and Ellison and tells them to run. They get downstairs to John Henry's room, only to find Cameron's body in his place, with her chip missing. Sarah recognizes the Turk and accuses Weaver of creating Skynet; she denies it, stating that John Henry was meant to be a countermeasure against Skynet. He has gone into the future, which is where they must go. Weaver activates the hidden TDE device in the room, so that she could follow John Henry. She offers Ellison to come with her but he refuses, so she asks that he pick up Savannah from gymnastics. John volunteers to go, to retrieve Cameron's chip. Sarah stays behind to try to stop Skynet. The TDE sphere then envelops John and Weaver. They then arrive in the future, but not with Cameron's body. Weaver quickly creates clothes for herself, but John retrieves a nearby jacket. Dog barks then start. Weaver slips away as John meets with a very much alive DerekKyle Reese and Cameron's template, Allison Young. and

Episode Trivia

In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected,and steppin' out over the line
h-Oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we're young
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

yes, girl we were
Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
and strap your hands 'cross my engines
Together we could break this trap
We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back
h-Oh, Will you walk with me out on the wire
`Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
But I gotta know how it feels
I want to know if love is wild
Babe I want to know if love is real

Oh, can you show me
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
And the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
In an everlasting kiss

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
but there's no place left to hide
Together Wendy we can live with the sadness
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
h-Oh, Someday girl I don't know when
we're gonna get to that place
Where we really wanna go
and we'll walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us
baby we were born to run

Oh honey, tramps like us
baby we were born to run

Come on with me, tramps like us
baby we were born to run
