TV Review: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2, Ep. 22: Born to Run


Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2, Ep. 22: Born to Run certainly ended this season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles with a bang. Cameron protecting John from himself, like a watchdog, is a dynamic that has made their relationship one of the highlights of the show and it was for Born to Run as well. Cameron taking off her top and bra and telling John to get on top of her was such a fun moment and the sexual tension snowballed as the scene went on. When John stuck the knife in Cameron, I almost thought she would say: “You’ve penetrated me John.” Oh well. I also thought John was going to kiss her. His head just kept moving closer and closer.

When Mr. Ellison asked Cameron Ms. Weaver’s question: “Will you join us?”, Cameron’s “emotional” response to it was very interesting to see. Even John picked up on it.

The most exciting part of the episode for me was the jail house break out scene. Cameron really went to town with the shoty. It was complete BS that she never hit anyone since she has routinely killed threats to John coupled with computer targeting systems. I guess John ordered her off screen not to kill anyone. Isn’t it peculiar during the breakout scene that none of the escaping prisoners gawked at the bleeding, bullet hole-ridden girl walking down the hall with half her face blown off and a metallic red eye staring out of it. I know its an escape but the fact that NO ONE did a double take, extremely strange.

I did not really like the ending to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2, Ep. 22: Born to Run but I can honestly say I did not see it coming. The best part is that the Reese Brothers are alive and so is Allison from Palmdale. John will get to meet his dad and the human Cameron was based on. What did you think of the season finale of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles? Did it live up to your expectations? What do you think of the concept of two computer systems opposing each other in the future?
