Yeah, I was wondering that too.  What happened to Cheri?  Are they going to just ignore that entire high school storyline with the suicide and the graffiti?

I'm wondering if any of the season 1 stuff fell victim to the writer strike and for season 2 they've decided to go in a slightly different direction on the school angle?

I didn't actually care for last night's episode, however.  The tone of it just felt off from last week and, by the looks of the scenes, next week. 

But Cameron is definitely messed up.  Somethings off with her at this point and it might be interesting to see where they go with that part of the story.

I hope they don't go with her wanting to kill John. That'd be too obvious.

did that in first episode...




As for why she is off...


1. Damage cause by the explosion
2. Modifications that John did to the chip could be causing it
3. Do we even know which chip she has in her head? After all the one Terminator that they melted with Thermite she kept the chip.

2 - John didn't have time to modify the chip.  He pulled it and there was only a short period of time between that and when they were going to melt her down.  Besides, he barely was able to read a chip in the first season, no info that he has the capability yet to reprogram one.

3 - She has her chip.  I'm pretty sure they melted down the other chip (Vick's) in the first season after Derek discovered Cameron hadn't yet disposed of it.  That's the chip they read to get info about the traffic cam network.  But I don't think they kept it.

I'm going with 1...she's off due to the explosion and the reset she did after he reinstalled her chip.

He says that he can fix it, and after they pull the chip from her head you see John filing it and doing stuff with it right before he put it back in her haed. So he did do something to it. Because up to the point they pull it from her she is trying to kill him and then goes into the I LOVE YOU rant after being crushed between the 2 trucks.

I would say that the explosion messed her up, being smashed between 2 trucks hasn't helped matters, and finally John monkeying with the chip hasn't been a big help either.

I thought it was a great episode. I especially liked the back story of Alyson Young. Especially since she is just about to be born.

Last night's episode was really great! I thought sure that their neighbor would give birth to Allison. ;D

I wonder about the singer from Garbage's little girl.  It would be kind of wild if she were a mini T-1000.

It was good to see where the Cameron thing went. It had me scared for a moment.

Not sure I am digging the whole T1000 aspect at all though.

Just a point of reference here, Catherine Weaver aka Shirley Manson (Garbage) is a T-1001, not a T1000. Call her what you want but I'm not taking a piss in that whizzer!   :o   ;D
