While John continues to have more difficulty coming to terms with a student who committed suicide and felt he was powerless to prevent it, he becomes separated from Sarah and Cameron while they're searching for some stolen cargo when he's accidentally trapped in the back of an armored truck loaded with enough metal to build 500 endoskeletons. But instead, John finds another Terminator with an unknown mission. Meanwhile, the murder of a plastic surgeon that Agent Ellison is investigating leads him to a surprising suspect, while Cromartie, the terminator who followed Sarah, John, and Cameron into the future, continues to rebuild his bio image into another person.

The episode centers around a shipment of "refined coltan". That is rather like saying refined pyrite to indicate iron , or refined galena to mean lead. Coltan is short for columbite-tantalite, (Fe,Mn)Nb2O6 and (Fe,Mn)Ta2O6 respectively. These ores of Niobium and Tantalum are frequently found together because the two metals are chemically equivalent. Tantalum is used to make jet turbine blades more heat resistant. See more
The terminator showed his badge to a guard that let him into Depot 37. It wasn't shown however, how Sarah and Cameron made it inside the facility, or how they got out. See more
