After finding a clue to one of the dead assassins after them, Sarah, John, Cameron, and Derek locate another T-888 who attempts to kill Savannah Weaver whom they are forced to abduct, at the cost of Derek's life. As the paths of Sarah and Catherine's finally begin to cross, Sarah learns about Ellison's work at Zeira Corp and about the identity of 'John Henry'. While Catherine sends out Ellison to find Savannah, she becomes more determined to keep the existence of John Henry and her work a secret, but also finally learns about the existence of Sarah Connor as well as John. When Sarah requests a meeting with Catherine (with nobody still aware of her being the elusive T-1001), a persistent FBI agent becomes determined to find the abductor of Savannah.

Who's Chronicles?
15 April 2009 | by scott_dalbySee all my reviews

I love this Terminator adaptation. I hope they continue to make the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Although the way i personally feel about the series is that i think they should reconsider the name of the show from the Sarah Connor chronicles to the John Connor chronicles, Sarah seems to be fading into the background, and John is starting to embrace his destiny and become the future leader we have all heard of. not that this annoys me i actually prefer the John stories to Sarah's, i find them more interesting. None the less this show is awesome and hope that they do a 3rd season. So much more potential. and remember 'The Future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.'
