    Remember Rule of Acquisition 190: Hear all, trust nothing.

    I.E. Don't believe it until you hear it from TVGuide, YahooTV, EW, TerminatorFiles, or the Terminator Blog on Fox.Com.

    Besides, the set in question was the Resistance Safehouse set. As we saw in the opening scenes they left that Safehouse in tonight's episode.

    Great episode. Very much like Weaver/JH being something other than Skynet, so I'm glad this episode cemented that. Was there a preview for the next episode?

    I did some checking. LEGO is not involved with TSCC.

    The Connors seriously need to get some better weaponry. Surely, Cameron can break into a military armory and pick up some firepower, maybe a few LAWs, some M4/M320 combos, an OICW or two, and, of course, a GMC Minigun.

    I really want to see Cameron wielding a minigun. If that happens, then I will be impressed with Summer Glau as an action star.
    Having her just fire away with a pistol all the time isn't impressive, or effective.

    Well now, it's pretty much confirmed that Weaver is one of the good guys, or a not-bad guy. That's going to make her meeting with the Connors fairly interesting. I hope they don't screw things up by destroying John Henry and letting Skynet have free reign.

    I really like the fact that there are more than just one Machine faction.
    I'm thinking the T-1000 from last week was in fact 'Weaver' and while not working with the Human Resistance, is working against Skynet.

    Even if the show is gone, there's another show that loves to ramp up the stakes every season, even if it's to the point of absolute absurdity.

    Jack Bauer's saved America for seven seasons, but can he save the world from Judgment Day? :)

    I think a really big clue as to what's going on was missed by some people. Everything that happened to John Henry happened moments after he said yes, you can change the rules.

    It's too much of a coincidence to dismiss.

    I liked the episode, but a lot of it was heavy handed.

    The aforementioned "change the rules" bit and the whole thing with the dude saying "daemon" over and over again.
    It's like a non-computer using writer saw that term and decided to use it as much as he could in that one scene.

    Frakkin' Skynet took out my Internet connection last night, about ten minutes from the end, so I wasn't able to continue posting here.

    :mad:

    Anyway, I gave it an 'Excellent' vote, as this was far better than the last few eps and I too, am intrigued by the notion that Skynet already exists and is operating behind the scenes, kinda like a Cylon 'God' or something (for a moment, it looked as if John Henry was getting religion when he was re-booted).

    :eek:

    Good stuff. I'll be back.

    Actually we know - from this episode - that there are three chips. If you look closely when the inept guard is looking at the PDA the three locations of the chips are briefly filled in with solid circles.

    We also know now, however, that Cameron is a Triple 8.

    The images of the endoskull. It was a match for the T-888.

    actually, no, while Cameron's skull may retain alot of the trip8's design (not much can really be done to the cosmetic design of a human skull and keep it viable as an infiltration design) the short reboot time, plus her chasis built to mimic a female (unless we see a female terminator clearly referred to as a trip8, the model number is for male terminators only) prove that she is not a trip 8

    Looked to me like the images of the endoskull were actually data taken from John Henry's "brother" on his own body. That doesn't mean that Cameron is a 888, just that John Henry only has data on a 888. After all, how could he have any data on Cameron or any other terminator model? He's just an AI with access to a single terminator body and not any actual knowledge of the future beyond what's in front of him.

    That model number is not for male Terminators only. Rosie was a T-888 according to the producers. Rosie also had the same chip design as Cameron.

    Also, post T-800 design type, the skulls didn't have chip access in that location.
