With Sarah now in police custody, John and Cameron hide in a cheap motel. John is concerned about his mother's recent weight loss and thinks that Cameron may be a source of radiation poisoning. Sarah manages to get a message to John via Father Armando Bonilla, the priest they had met in Mexico. Meanwhile, Catherine Weaver asks Ellison to arrange for her to meet John. Despite his mother's advice to leave the city and forget about her, John decides to try and set her free and Cameron agrees to stage a one-person assault at the prison where Sarah is being held. Afterwards, Sarah and John finally meet Weaver face-to-face who, it turns out, has a considerably different agenda than they might have expected. For John however, his future may be changed forever.

Did You Know?


The patch on Kyle Reese's coat is a Little League Umpire patch. This is significant because in the episode "What He Beheld", Derek Reese takes John to watch 2 boys play baseball. We find out that the 2 boys are Kyle and Derek Reese as kids. This scene at the end is also a nod to the 1st Terminator movie where Kyle Reese steals a olive colored trenchcoat jacket from the department store after arriving to 1985 to protect Sarah Connor. The jacket itself seems to hold some significance to Kyle Reese. See more »

Too many plot holes and unanswered questions to be fully satisfying

A good season finale in itself, but not a good series finale
