The second segment of Season 2 of Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles has begun with blood and good acting. In Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2, Ep.14 – The Good Wound, Lena Headey really showed what a good actress she is. I was not so much surprised as I was happy. “Women have a higher threshold for pain than men do, especially women that have been through child birth.” “It’s going to feel like that?” The episode was excellent because of it and the presence of her hallucination, Kyle Reese (Jonathan Jackson). From the promos, I thought Kyle would become part of the show like his brother did. Hopefully Sarah will continue to dream of him. What was also cool was that he was dressed as he did in Terminator 1, right down to the Nikes with the Velcro strap across the top.

I watched T-1000 in action with bloody satisfaction. Honestly, his scene was badass. She really cleaned house in “cut throat” fashion. It was about time. We were also shown John Henry and the cold-blooded intelligence he is destined to become. “You’re a machine.” “How can you tell?” “I looked into your eyes. There’s nothing there.” What did you think of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2, Ep.14 – The Good Wound?

    I loved the episode. Loved it.

    Particularly the childbirth exchange – a lighter moment in an episode that was otherwise filled with a tragic sensibility.

  • Thanks for the comment katie. I loved it too. I’ve seen the episode three times already.

    The childbirth exchange was well written dialog. I agree.

    I also like how they incorporated events from the past into this episode as well.

  • I waited a long time to see that episode, and I’ve gotta say I was immensely disappointed. I didn’t like the whole “hallucinating Reese” storyline. They need to just leave that character out of the show all together. They can’t even come close to what was already done with him, and adding him in any way/shape/or form just pushes this incarnation of terminator farther away from the previously established, amazing versions.

    I really wish that John’s girlfriend would just die already. I really don’t like her character, or what the character is making John do in the show. I want to see him turning into the future bad ass and leader of the resistance. I know they could be trying to do that with the whole girlfriend story, but I just don’t see it and I really don’t like it.

    Also, I want to see more of Cameron kicking ass. The drama is good from time to time, but I really think they are dropping the ball by not taking advantage of the potential for action. They could really up the viewership for the show if they would crank it up a notch. Moving a show to Friday night is the kiss of death, and I guess the writers have just given up already, or they know something we don’t. Please send back another terminator to throwdown with Cameron!

    All that said, there were some encouraging things. I really really liked the whole Shirley Manson going ape-shit thing. That was bad ass. I really didn’t understand why, so hopefully they explain it on the next episode. But that was really cool to see. Also, I thought the whole John Henry thing is getting pretty funny. I’m sure that’s not what they were going for, but it’s making me laugh. The guy is acting like a retarded 5 year old! Playing with toys like that, I love it.

    What was the deal with him calling out Shirley’s character? I’m really looking forward to the show exploring that a bit. I’d love to see former Agent Ellison discovering that she is a terminator by talking to John Henry, and he has to start running with the Connor family to save his life. That would be a nice twist. And Ultimately, but not any time soon, I’d like to see Cameron take out Shirley’s character. They’d probably have to do it in a similar fashion to T2, but I’d be cool with that.

    There are some things that disappointed me, and my interest is fading in the show. BUT, I see loads of potential and I think the show could get really interesting real soon.

  • There is nothing going on with the Riley storyline. Something needs to happen with it or she should be cut out of the show.

    John Henry’s brain is adolescent so playing with toys is not entirely out of place. I love the way he called out Shirley’s character during a totally innocuous conversation.

    My interest in the show is actually higher now that Headey has stepped up her acting game.

    I had actully lost interest way back after they brought back the terminator that is now John Henry, they should have let him alone.

    Iactually watched this episode on a whim, nothing else was on and i had an hour to kill. There were moments that i was tempted to urn it off and find something else, but overall, this episode actually impressed me and brought me back to the show.

    My real big issue with the episode was Kyle Reese. I really was not impressed with the actor or how the charactor was donem however i am of the opinion that only one actor should play Kyle and thats Michael Bien.

    They really should ditch Riley, useless as a tit on a bull. Initially i liked the idea of John having a GF, but they messed it up.

    I really want to see Sarah and Cameron kicks more ass.

    And finally Shirley going ape shit defentily has to be the best moment in the series thus far.

  • I wish they would do more with Reese as well. He is being under used. I liked the flash backs they were doing with him previously.

    “And finally Shirley going ape shit defentily has to be the best moment in the series thus far.”
    I don’t know about that. Seeing Cameron staple her skin back together was cool. Plus all of the fight scenes, especially the one at the end of ep 13 of this season. And let us not forget Cameron walking around half-naked in the first ep. 🙂
