Hee Hee Hee.

Yeah, that was a nice action packed episode. And it was fairly intimate without the voice overs. I'm in the camp that will say the PoV switches worked.

Still, what's with the plush puppy in Cromartie's trunk?

You know why I loved that one so much? It was character driven, not story driven. I still want more Sarah, of course, but if you're going to do an ensemble episode, that's how I like it.

I agree with you that the POV changes worked. In fact for this episode, I'm not sure it would have worked as well without them. It was a fairly quick story, but by expanding into all the different POVs it felt richer and longer.

LOL on the plush puppy in the trunk. I guess it's the only kind of dog a terminator can have. ;)

The PoV switches really helped fill out the episode. I loved some of the stuff they got to do with those. And it really helped add to the tension.

Also credit to Garret/Cromartie for an awesome entrance into the episode. Sarah working in the floor and then it's just his legs behind her before she goes scrabbling along the ground. So well done.

And Cromartie getting to talk to her and explain every single one of her mistakes to her. And she got it. Sarah understood exactly how she'd gone wrong and you could tell.

The more I think about it, the more I liked it.

Also, they finally made Cromartie as efficient and successful and terrifying as he's ever been...and then they took him out, because anything less than this in the future would be unsatisfactory. So why try?

Awesome, AWESOME ep. I loved it. Loved the POV shifts, loved the pacing, loved that Sarah never stopped fighting, loved that John may finally have a frikkin' CLUE as to what he's exposing Riley to (although I have to admit, I kept hoping that Riley would die, not Cromartie - I already miss Cromartie), loved Sarah's breakdown at the end with smashing the chip, because it was totally the result of what Cromartie told her and her understanding that he was right and that she and John - especially John - would never, ever have what anyone else would call a normal life.

I'm in the minority in liking Riley, but only if she doesn't become another female protector like Sarah and Cameron. I like her as the "normal" girl that makes John smile. And speaking of John - YES - I think he did finally get a freaking clue. I don't mind John being a fuck-up teen with some trauma, but we have to see that there's still a John Connor with some sense in there somewhere. And this ep we did.

Sarah was awesome. She never gave up, never stopped fighting. I love that about her and we really got to see it this time. Her breakdown at the end was perfect. I think it's been coming for a while. And yayx2 for Sarah and John hug!
