Re: Official Terminator Season Two Spoiler Thread

I wanted to add this in. In the thread for the Terminator Salvation Teaser they have an image of a Terminator Endoskeleton. I was surprised to see that it's pretty close to what we see (briefly) of a T-600 in TSCC's first season.

Re: Official Terminator Season Two Spoiler Thread

Another Terminator Salvation news bit (yeah this is for TSCC but its still important)

The Terminator has been cast. He is being played by Roland Kickinger

This is an image of the actor





Now for a bit about Sarah Connor. It took them 150 frames for the storyboard for the opening scenes of the Season Premire and it's supposed to be more action packed and suspenseful than the FBI scene.

Re: Official Terminator Season Two Spoiler Thread

Some additional data

- The season will only consist of 13 episodes.
- There will be massive, season long changes starting in the Season Premire.
-
Thomas Dekker:
"In the first season John was weak. He was mentally there but I don't think he had the blood in him yet for war. I knew subconsciously from Josh that we needed to keep him young and innocent, with the long hair, trying to go to school and be normal so we could give him an arc. This year, John's got a lot more cold blood running in him and I'm taking that into account every time we do a take."

According to the trailers, they say that there's "physical damage" to Cameron's chip. So, maybe her programming hasn't reverted to "default mode" but has instead been corrupted in some way.
I saw that trailer too. It would also make more sense this way given John's statement that he built her. Unless he popped in a chip from the "dead terminators" bin, I don't see how her default programming would be to kill John if he was the one that created her.

I really hope this whole "Cameron is a hot baddie" thing doesn't last beyond the premiere. I'd rather she not be a T-X clone.

In other news, I've pre-ordered the DVD of Season 1.

Re: Official Terminator Season Two Spoiler Thread

^ They've been pretty good about keeping spoilers quiet with this series I'll give them that. I wish I could tell you if Cameron is going to be a baddie for long.

Also, I just read, the producers gave Lena Headey an ultimatum and told her to get to the gym between Season 1 and 2.

Re: Official Terminator Season Two Spoiler Thread

The biggest complaint I've heard about Headly's Sarah Conner (other than the fact that she's not Linda Hamilton) is that she's not buff enough for the part, so this could be in response to that. Of course, Sarah might have let herself go a little after T2 thinking that the threat was over, and has had little time to 'buff up" since learning that she was wrong.

I wouldn't mind if "Dark Cameron" stuck around for a few eps, but not forever.

I'm kinda disapointed that they are turning Cameron evil, but I think there is still potential for that to be an interesting story. Just as long as they don't keep her bad for the whole season. Everything else you guys have said does sound pretty cool. I'm definitely looking forward to Season 2!

^ Another (minor) spoiler

- The theme for this season is EVOLUTION.

Even more important if Turk is Skynet...

Yeah, I was rewatching T2 a couple of weeks ago and had forgotten how cut Linda Hamilton was in that role. Of course, she then had to up and marry James Cameron...

I wouldn't mind if "Dark Cameron" stuck around for a few eps, but not forever.
I doubt they'd make her permanently bad as that would ruin her character as a foil for John. I've also enjoyed the hinted irony of her--a machine--being John's companion (and creation) in the future. Converting her into a villain for too long would undermine all of this.

^ Remember that they are giving John a different companion this season though. A new character who will be his love interest.

Re: Official Terminator Season Two Spoiler Thread

So if the Turk isn't Skynet, and I do mean "if", could it also be another living being?

Y'know... When they say that john Built her, they might just mean the flesh. The rest of the parts for her would have had to have come from one of the terminator factories if not they caught it running free, no matter how she was programmed or reprogrammed and rereprogramed and defulted.

Yes, but the Connor/Cameron relationship is of a different flavor. The writers had been careful throughout Season 1 to imply tenderness without some sort of necessary romantic component. They've built up the contrasts between the two characters as a central part of the show, so again I don't see them undermining this by making Cameron permanently bad. Hopefully her chip's "physical damage" will be fixed by the end of the premiere. Evidently, John gets close enough to her to figure this out.

Think Chloe Sullivan. Even if she's not capable of love and her mission is just to seduce him for one reason or another, possibly because some significant girlfriend in the past is going to do something bad or something bad is going to happen to her and Cameron is supposed to be a prophylactic... the third wheel can sometimes make inroads as a pitch hitter...

(I know nothing about baseball, but I think I'm paraphrasing something Samantha Jones said about threesomes in Sex and the City.)

Consider River Song or the unnamed Girlfriend of Tommy Lee Jones from men in black?

"it's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all."

"Yeah. Try it."
