Episode Synopsis

Sarah and John hit the road without Cameron and Derek to stay with Charley Dixon, where she reveals to Charey that her cancer may have emerged. Meanwhile, a computer worm infects John Henry.

Plot Danglers

Cameron and Derek load supplies at the storage locker - tension between them palpable. When he responds that Sarah sent them to get John away from her, Cameron responds, "Or from you." She notices that he has a jacket belonging to Jesse; he rejects her curiosity - "You know nothing about it." But Cameron knows he loved Jesse - "You wouldn't have fathered a child with her if you didn't." Derek is taken aback but this revelation, as Cameron says she is sorry for his loss - the child Jesse was carrying aboard the submarine in Year 2027. Derek is stunned and angry, pulling his weapon on Cameron. "She was pregnant, she miscarried," Cameron continues, wide-eyed. Gasping, Derek exits the locker.

Outside on the loading dock, Derek asks Cameron why she told him about Jesse now. "You put John in danger when you lied about Jesse," she explains. Everyone has lost someone - Sarah nearly lost her child, Derek lost a child. He realizes that Cameron knew Jesse in the future - "I met her once," Cameron replies, "It seems she never told you a lot of things."

Just as Derek thanks Cameron for telling him about Jesse, a truck tire blows out, the van following them stopping at a distance. Derek tells Cameron to fix the tire, as he approaches the van. Inside, a man lays across the seats, but the other is hidden and hits Derek with a taser, and begins lifting him into the van. Cameron spots this and begins running toward the van, weapon drawn. The men drive toward her, firing automatic weapons, hitting Cameron, who is unaffected - she hits the passenger; the van spins around and drives off, while Cameron scans it's bumper tag.

Cameron finds a warehouse with the van, confirms the tag, and rips open a section of chain link fence with her hands. In a dark corridor, she is deluged with water, and someone charges the floor electrically, stunning her to the floor. The man enters, asking on a cell for instructions on where to cut her. A T-skull appears on-screen, showing the entry point on the top of the head. "Where did you get this diagram?" he asks..."Your brother?" - a reference that must mean he is unknowingly talking to a Cyberdyne systems interface. While Derek is lashed to a chair in the building, Cameron reboots and strangles her assailant. She frees Derek, and while he gazes at her, she says simply, "You're welcome." She rescued him because he knew the location of the safe house, John's location.
