The episode begins with Charley working on Derek Reese, who has been shot in the chest. Charley gives Derek a sedative so he can remove the bullet, which causes him to dream of a memory of the past with his brother Kyle on patrol in the resistance. Derek, Kyle and their patrol have been captured by a Terminator and are being transported somewhere in a truck...Read the full recap

Charley Dixon: So. Skynet. Robots. From the future. (indicates Cameron) And you're a...
Cameron: Yes, I'm a...
Sarah: You need a...
Charley Dixon: minute?
Sarah: I was going to say a drink.
Charley Dixon: Oh. Yeah. That too.
Charley Dixon: So who's Kyle? He from the future too? Hmm? He come back before? And... he's John's father.
Sarah: Yes. They're brothers. He doesn't know.
Charley Dixon: So when you used to say John's father was dead...
Sarah: He is.
Charley Dixon: It was because of all... all this? (Sarah looks away) Hey... we never had a chance.
Charley: You know, little girl? You freak me the hell out. On the outside, you're just as pretty as a picture. But on the inside, you're a...
Cameron: Hyper-alloy combat chassis.
Charley: Is that a complicated way of saying "robot"?
Cameron: Cybernetic organism. Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton.
Charley: Okay. Scary robot. And here you are, carving up this guy into chum.
Cameron: He's not a guy. He's a scary robot.
Charley: Okay, he's a scary robot? You, are a very scary robot.
Sarah: What did you say to Charly?
Cameron: I freak him the hell out.
Sarah: I'll bet you do. I'll just bet. I know what you're thinking. I may not know how you think, but I know what you're thinking about. And what you're thinking about right now is exactly what you should not think about. I didn't leave Charley because he was a threat to me or John. We're a threat to him, do you understand?
Cameron: You were right to leave him.
Sarah: You don't go near him. You don't touch him. You swear to me you'll leave him alone, or so help me, I'll find a way of taking you apart piece by piece.
Cameron: I swear.
Sarah: So do I. (looks at the Thermite pit) That thing's done, right? It's vapor.
Cameron: One missing component. His left hand. I'll find it.
Sarah: Everything needs to be destroyed. Everything.
Sarah: Every last bolt. Get it done.
Cameron: I swear. (waits for Sarah to leave, then pockets Vick's chips)
John cannot be of blood type AB if his mother is O as stated in the episode, he can only be A, B or O depending on his fathers genotype. Also his mother should be able to donate since O is the universal donor and they are both Rh negative.
In another blood type related goof, why does Cameron know Sarah's blood type and not John's? Her mission was specifically to protect John, so she should have all his medical information.
Charley tells Sarah "There's a storm coming", the same line told to Sarah at the end of the first movie, The Terminator.
