As James Ellison


James Ellison sits at his desk eating when someone knocks on his door. When he opens it, the door is pushed back into his face knocking him to the floor and he sees himself, or rather a Terminator that has taken his appearance. The Terminator points a gun at him and prepares to kill him when a silvery sword-like object appears through his chest from behind and then a hand comes through clutching what appears to pass for a Terminator's heart, some type of electro-mechanical device, and the Ellison Terminator falls dead to the floor, revealing the Cromartie Terminator holding the heart. Ellison wants to know why Cromartie saved him, thinking that all the Terminators work together. Cromartie says that he and Skynet have different ideas, and Cromartie believes Ellison will lead him to the Connors...
