Episode Synopsis

  • Jesse flashes back to a life-altering mission aboard her submarine, the Jimmy Carter. Sarah and John decide they can't continue living in their house and make plans to leave in the "Today is the Day" episode (Part 1).
  • Plot Danglers

    John ominously opens and closes the pocket watch rigged with Cameron's self-termination device. "Was it you? Did you kill her?" he asks Cameron. "I didn't kill her," she replies. He doubts her because she sometimes lies to him, which she admits, but denies that she is lying now. She says she is sorry for his loss - he replies that he wishes he could believe that, too.

    John goes to the home of Riley's foster parents, meeting the husband, and asking about Riley's whereabouts. He replies only that she did not come home; then the phone rings, he responds as if it is Riley calling. Outside, it is actually Cameron who is the caller - impersonating Riley's voice and claiming to be in Riverside. She asks to talk to John, who takes the phone, talking with Cameron, who finally says, "I love you." John leaves and meets Cameron outside, angry with her about their plan to call the home - Cameron changed the plan by making John part of it and talking to him, adding to the belief by the foster dad that Riley was still alive and forestalling a call to the police. John insists on leaving, alone, and stalks off.

    Sarah begins to burn the cyborg parts as Cameron returns. She tells Cameron she planned to wait for her with Derek's sniper rifle, which would solve about 50% of her problems. She would not have felt bad, but someone would, someone who would never forgive her. Cameron responds that it is about John, his safety, and Sarah is concerned about that. "We're all a threat to John," Cameron says, his worries about family and Cameron making him vulnerable. There is only one way for him to be safe, she says, that is to be alone.
