him out. The truck with the Coltan drives off.
They follow the
truck and watch the workers. A fourth man enters and tells the three
other men to leave. When the three leave, the fourth man grabs a
shipment of the super-heavy Coltan and moves it like it's nothing.
Cameron scans the man. He's a Terminator, but not Cromartie.
Ellison arrives at Dr. Lyman's office. Lyman was murdered and blood at
the scene matches Ellison's strange blood samples. Ellison and the
detective watch video footage of Cromartie entering the office Friday
night, and leaving Sunday morning, but he has a new face. An office
manager brings a file containing images of patient George Laszlo. The
images match Cromartie's new face.

him where the truck went. She cuts him loose, and tells the man he can

They think the third man has left and go to make a call. John looks
around and sneaks out of the truck.
Ellison talks to a group of
other agents about his case. Stewart notes that Laszlo's blood didn't
match the blood sample in the lab. Ellison tells them he believes the
person in the plastic surgery office may have been someone else trying

surgery would have killed any human without anesthesia.
