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.

Did You Know?


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 »


Sarah Connor: You know what I love about you guys? Even when you've evolved into the ultimate indestructible killing machine, you're not above self-examination and improvement.
Cameron Phillips: Thank you.
Sarah Connor: Please shut up.

Coltan and New Identity
22 January 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Cameron shows Sarah and John a picture of the skull of the Terminator Cromartie in the present days (2007) possibly with intact chip; further that a shipment of the alloy Coltan, which is used for constructing the skeleton of the machines, is being transported to the Port of Los Angeles due to an accident in the original destination harbor. She concludes that Cromartie is behind these events, and Sarah decides to move from Los Angeles. However, John, who is having problems to deal with the death of his suicidal schoolmate Jordan Cowan, tells that they should fight while Cromartie is vulnerable. They keep the depot in the harbor under their surveillance and witness an armed group robbing the metal. When John decides to plant a cell phone in the truck to track it, he is trapped in the truck with the criminals that drive to a distant military facility. Meanwhile Cromartie forces a plastic surgeon to operate his face using the identity of the aspirant actor George Laszlo, killing him after the surgery. Agent James Ellison follows his hunch but his superiors do not accept the basis of his investigation.

In this good episode, John is feeling lost after the death of Jordan in the last episode. Sarah still gives a bad treatment to Cameron, and I really do not understand her behavior. The veteran Agent James Ellison shows the importance of experience in his business and his feelings were absolutely right. Cromartie has self-restored and has a new identity. Cameron, as usual, is responsible for the best moments of the show. My vote is seven.
