Sarah visits Myles Dyson's widow, and Sarah ends up meeting Andy Goode along the way who ends up being an inventor of a chess playing computer named "The Turk." Meanwhile, John and Cameron try their best to fit in on their first day at the new high school, with John trying to catch up on the eight years of history lost and Cameron trying to mimic the human emotions of her fellow students. Elsewhere, Agent Ellison tries to piece together the mysterious mass killing of four unidentified men, while Cromartie the Terminator tracks down a scientist to assist him in his regeneration.
