  • While Sarah would much rather focus on John's safety and avoid what's going on in order to focus on Cromartie, John differs and would rather deal with this new terminator who's in charge of the so-called 'heavy metal' shipment

      The action and suspense picks up a bit more in this episode as Cameron discovers that Cromartie came through with them during time travel and that a shipment of refined coltan is suspected to be the metal component in construction of the terminators in the future war to come. While Sarah would much rather focus on John’s safety and avoid what’s going on in order to focus on Cromartie, John differs and would rather deal with this new terminator who’s

      in charge of the so-called ‘heavy metal’ shipment.

      John sneaks aboard the truck, allowing Sarah and Cameron to track him via cell phone, and follows the shipment to a hidden compound in the desert. After killing his helpers, the new terminator goes into standby mode and guards the compound’s blast doors, trapping John inside. This makes for a suspenseful sequence where John must carefully sneak his way around and remove the key from around the frozen terminator’s neck in order to ...


      • open the blast doors. Once ridding of the terminator and stealing the truck full of metal, the trio dump the whole load into the ocean. However, puzzling enough, Cameron seems to have kept a piece of the metal, but for what and why?

        Then there’s Agent Ellison’s investigation which ties into Cromartie’s subplot. Cromartie kills a plastic surgeon this time around after he forces him to reconstruct his face to make it look like an unemployed actor known as George Lazlo,

        whom he also kills as well in order to take his place. It seems that the plastic surgeon’s murder is related to Ellison’s previous cases by this terminator’s faux blood, however, the real George Lazlo’s blood isn’t the same as the one from the crime scenes. It’s quite a breath of fresh air to be learning and discovering things from Ellison’s perspective but it’s strange enough why Cameron would keep a block of that metal. I guess we’ll soon find out.
