I took that as Sarah's concern about Cameron's relationship with John.

Yes, that's a great point. Sarah's hallucinations were all third-person, so I don't see the fact that Sarah wasn't in that scene (or the one at the snack machine) being inconsistent. Hallucinations aren't usually consistent.

I gave it an average. I agree with the majority of posters that they dragged on the "Crazy Hallucinating Sarah" too long. If it came down to Headly crying that her character hasnt gotten enough screen time and this is the results then Im gonna be pissed. I have always thought that she was the most boring character on the show. The show would be doing MUCH better if the focused on John and Cameron and had alot more Cameron in bra and panties.
Another thing that I believe they could do better on is the dragging "Garbage Lady" plot. If this is the last season of the show they better get on with her story cause we dont know much more about her and her agenda than we did when we first saw her...
I'd hate for it to end up like SG:A where they didnt properly get to finish up story lines.
The recent interview with Josh Friedman, the show's creator, had him saying that all storylines will be wrapped up this season, including Weaver's mission, the three dots, and the Jesse/Riley thing. More was mentioned, but those were the major things.
so you think the show will be canned after this season or the movie release? sounds like thier planning on it
The producers have said that they don't know what's going to happen. I do get the feeling that they are going to end this season by tying up all the loose ends, in case there isn't another season. Might as well be prepared.

It cheated. As we had "dream" moments where Sarah wasn't present.

She dreamed that John was seeing Cameron walk by in a bra, too.
But there is some justification for that - as well as for the pancakes (Cameron makes them even better, in her nightmare) and Cameron being generally buddy-buddy with John. Sarah can imagine all kinds of things in her dreams anyway, and Cameron and John is a major point in her subconscious fears. The closing monologue points in the same direction: Sarah is afraid of losing John to Cameron. This will be a major point in the last 6 episodes, I'm sure.

I was at first confused by this episode as well, thought almost everything was a dream, but that was because I did not consider Winston wasn't really dead. Come to think of it, the broadcast intercepted by JH talked about "a man shot", not dead. When you review the episode like that, everything becomes clear. The sleep clinic being a dream - the burning bed was a first major clue to that.

I'm wondering if the factory was Weaver's, or not. Winstom was calling an accomplice, and they thought John (well, Sarah's son) had blown it up. I suspect Weaver attacked a 'competitor' in the "making Skynet" business.

There seems to be wide disagreement about this episode in various online fora. Either people really like it (the creepy atmosphere and all - it did have that X-files vibe a bit), or they only appreciated the view right above this post.

Maybe next week we'll find out Sarah dreams about a practically-naked Cameron A LOT.

I admit it makes a little more sense if Winston is real. But I spend a lot of my time confused while watching this show, and this week was probably the worst as far as completely messing with my head. I would have appreciated a little more clarity on what was real and what wasn't.

Couldn't have said it any better myself.

I think that's a possibility.



But I think that Weaver was in control over the base. We have seen that she controls companies other than Zeira Corp. Though I do suppose anything is possible with this show.

I disagree on the factory being Not Weaver's, it sounded to me like the factory's cover MAY have been blown so better to destroy it and start anew than to run the risk of exposure

^ Another possibility. We'll find out soon enough.

Wouldn't it be shocking though if the Three Dots DID represent the logo of Cyberdyne/CRS from the films though...

Will Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles finish the season?
http://tvbythenumbers.com/2009/02/28...e-season/13675
Posted on 28 February 2009 by Robert Seidman

Is it possible that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles could be cancelled before the season even ends? Sure, it’s possible, but it doesn’t seem likely, despite continued deteriorating ratings. But, what FOX does or doesn’t do with the 8pm slot on Fridays may say more to how it feels about Dollhouse, than how it feels about Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

We already know how FOX feels about Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Sucky. The question is, does it feel just plain awful about it? My guess is no. Even with the latest ratings decline which included getting beat by an hour of Howie Do It (one original episode, one repeat), I’m thinking FOX lets it finish out its run.

That thinking is predicated on speculation which I merely think is true, rather than anything I know for certain is true. But I speculate that Warner Brother a.) made the show available to FOX very cheaply and b.) that when Terminator: Salvation comes out there will be a HUGE marketing spend promoting the movie, and that FOX will get a preferential share of the television advertising dollars allocated to promote the movie.

Speaking of the movie, now even James Hibberd likely motivated by crazed Terminator fanboys on the Internet throws out (and simultaneously, smacks down) the notion of well what if the movie is a hit in the summer and rubs off on the TV show. That’s not happening!

Commitment to a two hour, big screen, action packed movie is very different than a television show. But moreover, even if it’s the blockbuster hit of the summer (and I’ll certainly go see it!), and even if it does create a Terminator frenzy that causes more people to check out the TV show, they’ll check it out and think, “That’s not anything like the movie, see ya!”

If it was one hour of pure Sarah and Cameron being badass chicks with stuff constantly blowing up? It would do better, for sure. But that approach would do better regardless of there being a movie. That isn’t the show they are making. They’ve moved further and further away from that sort of thing (although it looks like they might be moving back towards more action) and it’s not clear to me that Josh Friedman wants to make that kind of show.

It seems, Friedman is much more interested in exploring how people react and adapt to what’s going on around them. I find that aspect similar to Battlestar Galactica, but that’s easier to get away with on cable and it’s not like BSG’s ratings are catching fire, although with only 3 episodes left now, that doesn’t matter.

But Battlestar Galactica doesn’t have anybody whining about how its lead-in is tanking BSG’s ratings which is semi-remarkable as its current lead-in is Moonlight. SciFi Friday nights right now has Moonlight sandwiched in-between reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the final episodes of Battlestar Galactica.

But TSCC is facing pressure, at least from fans of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. Dollhouse fans are starting to get exasperated over the TSCC lead-in and wondering if FOX could do anything else. I’m not sure there’s anything FOX could put on at 8pm that would measurably change how it’s going for Dollhouse, but it seems a slam dunk that FOX could improve the night’s performance overall at least a bit, simply by replacing TSCC with House reruns.

There’s absolutely no way Dollhouse doesn’t get to air all 13 episodes (they’ve already been shot!), and I don’t see FOX pulling the plug on TSCC. But if it does, that to me says much more about how FOX feels about Dollhouse. If it improved Dollhouse’s lead-in that would suggest that FOX cares more about Dollhouse than whatever deal it has with Warner Brothers that has kept TSCC on the air as long as it already has. I don’t see that happening, but if it did I’d view it as a sign that FOX isn’t completely in the space of “once all 13 episodes have aired, it’s done.”

It raises some good points: including one of the ones I mentioned about WB basically trying to buy it another season by low price and heavy advertising.

Truthfully if (big if though) we'd get another season I still think it should be maximized at 13 episodes only.
