    Is Weaver having trouble with empathy?

    Damn! It's an H-K! Or something very much like it.


    Didn't think I was going to see one of those on this show.

    She's a Terminator. I'm fairly certain she could drain a man dry.

    We have seen one before though when Sarah was shot. It flew over her but I was under the impression she'd imagined it.

    I thought this episode was dull as dirt until the last ten minutes or so.

    ^ I'm afraid I have to agree. It's starting to become more and more like Smallville I'm afraid. Like Smallville we need to have more mythology episodes!

    Widow: "I opened up to you. I deserve an explination. Who are you people?"

    Sarah Conner: "We're the A-TEAM."

    Pretty dull episode.

    Perhaps it is his single-minded belief in what he perceives to be his good works?

    They've changed her outfit, it seems. The jacket hugs her figure a bit more and I'm not complaining.

    I have to agree that the episode was rather dull until the last 15 minutes or so; the appearance of the H-K helped redeem my rating of the episode in part. Hopefully the three dots and Weaver's intentions are essentially explained now, as any more convolutions of plot will require me to take some aspirin before the next episode.

    I enjoyed Weaver's faux empathy and her unnerving mimicry of Ellison's words. Manson does a creepily good job at this. The hairdo she's been sporting in recent episodes is quite nice too. A T-1000 should not have a ponytail.

    So if the "not dead" dad was in hiding, why was he transporting the drone?

    And if he was lying to his fam that he had to be dead, why did Weaver want to kill him?

    Maybe he knows what was going on and is planning to turn the HK over to the authorities?

    I think Not Dead Dad has gone off the reservation, Weaver demands absolute loyalty so he has to die. Cool he got to keep an HK drone.

    Sarah got her leg operated on to remove the bullet just yesterday ( from her perspective, it's been a week for us ) and she's walking just fine. I would expect she'd be limping.

    I also think this ep dragged a bit, for me it picked up when Sarah found the hidden monitor room. I gotta write myself a note: "When building secret basement spy nook, get mar resistant flooring".

    Yeah this episode was pretty boring until the last 10 minutes. And next week looks like filler. I wish they'd get at it already...Now I want the HK-drone explained but I know its gonna take another 4-5 episodes or the rest of the season...

    I gave this episode a very generous Average.

    I really would like to know why the writers think that they have all this time to kill on the show with agonizingly slow episodes. This is likely the last season, and they need to wrap things up pretty soon. Honestly, you could miss the first 50 minutes of this episode (including commercials) and it wouldn't matter. The key was the last part of the episode. Unfortunately I have no clue whatsoever what that guy was doing with the drone. My guess is he wants to make money off of it.

    I knew that the HK from last year was not an illusion. Why it was flying in the middle of the day is hard to explain, though. This time, having it fly out of its hiding spot in the middle of the night in the desert makes sense.

    I also gather from this episode that the man who shot Sarah earlier is not dead?

    What does HK stand for again? And don't tell me it means Houver Kraaft!
