There is a Terminator novel in which John Connor has gay sex with Skynet? What is the title?

^ Not that, but there was a story that suggested Connor and Skynet both knew that they couldn't live without the other.

I have seen that one, where Connor accepts that Judgement day happens, and SKYnet accepts that it is to be defeated by him

Which both are dumb things to accept. It means that everybody loses horribly.

The ending I would prefer to the series is to take a leaf out of T2's ending - "no fate but what we make", and preferably no judgment day at all.

If they get a proper ending, I think they're still going to make Judgment Day happen. Friedman had said in an interview a while back that the show wasn't as much about the plot of trying to prevent JD, but about how the characters cope with that, and he kind of hinted at JD being inevitable, which is dumb considering the show's premise.

Well, those certainly sound interesting!

When are we likely to hear about a decision regarding renewal/cancellation? Early April?

Gasp! This episode scored a 3.90 in the ratings! That makes the Friday night trend 3.71 - 3.84 - 3.42 - 3.00 - 3.90 So that's the best ratings they've gotten in this time slot so far.
Finally some good news! And we're in luck, this is a 2-parter and it seems good enough to me that most viewers will want to tune in again, for the conclusion. Just what TSCC needs. And I suspect the 4 episodes after that will follow pretty seamlessly, in like one long arc to the end, good for viewer retention - hopefully.

Count in the good DVR numbers, and if they manage to again gain 30-40% viewers on top of the 3.90 live, TSCC has a chance again.
Are HULU numbers being included?

^ Depends on who you ask. One place says yes, one place says no.
