Episode SynopsisWhile receiving medical treatment Derek Reese (Brian Austin Green) has flashbacks of his life in the future, and his personal battle against the machines. Meanwhile, Sarah finds herself trying to explain the past to Charley.
John asks Cameron if she knows who Derek is. Cameron responds by reciting tactical data such as Derek's full name and rank ("Lieutenant Derek Thomas Reese"). Unsatisfied, John demands more, to which Cameron replies that Derek's only blood relative is his brother Kyle. Prompted for more information about Kyle, she recalls that Kyle was imprisioned in a Skynet work camp which he escaped alongside John Connor; he was declared MIA (missing in action) after the events of The Terminator. John then looks back at Derek.
In the garage, Cameron dissects the other Terminator, cutting away pieces of the fake-flesh.
Charlie goes to the garage and sees Cameron dumping thermite on the endoskeleton. Charlie then talks with Cameron and ends up telling her that she is a "very scary robot." Cameron appears to take offense and tells him to leave. She drops a torch into the thermite, then watches the Terminator endoskeltion as it is destroyed.
Sarah confronts Cameron in the garage about what she said to Charlie. Sarah tells Cameron that she cannot kill Charlie. Cameron tells Sarah the Terminator's left had is missing, and Cameron swears to find it. Sarah leaves, whereupon Cameron reveals the Terminator's memory chip in her hand, which she kept, unknown to the Connor's.
Derek turns the corner and sees a Terminator, possibly Cameron, walking towards him. He yells "metal," then grabs his pistol and tries to fire at her, but he's blocked by a Resistance fighter. The man tells Derek she has been reprogrammed. Derek is furious that Terminators are walking freely in the base.
Derek sits on a bunk in the shelter. The Cameron model machine tells him John wants to see him, and takes him to a secure section of the bunker. The door opens and Derek stands, amazed. A giant machine pulsates, using several 747 jet engines. It's the time machine.
Best MomentsCameron incinerates the T-888 illuminating her face revealing her endoskeleton face and her eyes glow blue.
