TSCC, why must you torment me so?

More random theories:

Those 3 dots are a date pertaining to Serrano Point.

The blood dots are next to Greenway on the wall, so I think they have something to do with the power plant. In Self Made Man, we learn that you can pinpoint a date with 3 stars (well maybe some of you geeks already knew that eh?). But the blood dots couldn't be indicating any specific date because it's not possible to be anywhere close to that accurate. So I think the dots are there to indicate that there's an important date surrounding Serrano Point that requires their attention.

We've been given 2 dates in regards to Serrano Point:
- Battle of Avila Beach on Dec 8, 2026
- Plant opening in August 2009

I doubt it has anything to do with the battle (though I do find it curious that we were given that specific date). So I'm inclined to think that the 3 dots are about the plant opening. If metal!Greenway had succeeded, the plant would have melted down, been unusable in the future and potentially contaminated the entire area (Skynet wins). But in stopping Greenway, it opened the door for automation, which probably means Skynet would retain control over it in the future (Skynet wins). So I'm thinking that stopping metal!Greenway was only step 1 in that mission. Step 2 is to prevent the plant from going online with an automated control room.

Sarah is going to eventually get cancer that starts in her upper left arm.

I had this theory back in eps 1 & 2 this season because there was a lot of focus put on her arm wound. When she got the contamination scrub-down at the power plant, they even made it a point to show that wound get scrubbed (and that episode was all cancer, cancer, cancer). But then her arm healed so I gave up the theory. In Self Made man, however, we're back to a cancer story, with Cameron's friend Eric. He had bone cancer and Cameron informs him it's returned in the long bone of his arm (upper arm). This could be some foreshadowing, so I'm back to my Sarah theory. And while I'm at it, I'll pass along another theory I read last season after The Turk, that Sarah will get leukemia that can be cured with terminator blood. It's a little BSG-ish, but also a very cool idea.

Baby references?

I still have no theories on all the baby references this season. We're probably like 3 months (in Connor time) since the pilot, right? If Sarah had jumped through time pregnant, she'd know it by now. I really hope it's not that Riley gets pregnant with John's baby. Anyone else have any baby theories? It's all gotta mean something.

That's what I thought too, but then I mapped it out the other day. Series starts in Aug. 1999, they jump to Sept. 2007. The next firm date we get is John's birthday which is (ugh, I forget) Nov. 15? 16? Then we get a handful more episodes and it's Dia de Los Muertos ... Nov. 2, 2008. So they producers pulled a fast one to bring the SCC timeline up to speed with the current timeline, but I don't think we're really supposed to think that a year and change has passed internally. (*see earlier rant about how horrible this fandom is with dates and internal consistency)

Right now I'm mostly interested with how our two known Terminator baddies seem to be at odds with Skynet of the future. Both Weaver and Cromartie seem to put their own agendas over Future!Skynets. Because if the point of metal!Greenway was to melt down Serano point, Weaver stepped in with a quickness to turn that failure into a bonus. And then the whole Cromartie killing metal!Ellison ...

Hmmm. Catherine I'm with you on. She definitely seems to have her own agenda. But I think Cromartie was just carrying out his mission, not intentionally working counter to Skynet. We already know one terminator will destroy another if it thinks it's interfering with it's own mission. This is just the first time we've seen a bad termiantor go after another bad terminator (usually killers and protectors are fighting). Cromartie thought he needed Ellison in order to carry out his primary mission of finding and killing John Connor. So when Ellison copy showed up, Cromartie had to stop it.

Maybe the baby references aren't about someone getting pregnant but about someone being born - either a person who's significant in the future or just Sky-net. Sarah's under stress to keep Sky-net from being born, but she can feel time running out and Sky-net sort of existing in its baby-form.

...or I'm rabling random shite. Who knows?

I love your theory on the three dots. I'd simply put them out as a sign of Sarah starting to lose it again. She's so stressed that she has to find a quick and easy way to solve everything and what's more suitable than a meaningless scribble on the wall?

At least your wacky theories keep my brain busy ;)

Time is indeed an issue. They've ben hitting is over the head with that too this season: Sarah wears a watch instead of a bracelet on her wrist this season. There are GIANT clocks on the stairway wall in their house. And we had that recent story with "watch maker" Charles Fischer and his "til the end of time" clock tattoo. I know there's been other time references too, but I can't think of them.

Yeah, I do think there's an element of Skynet "being born" to all the baby references. And You're probably right about that it also refers to someone being born (aside from Skynet). In last night's ep there was the birth of Sydney the super-immunity girl, but that was too much of a sidestep in the main story to be what all the baby stuff has been about. Maybe it all has to do with Kacy's baby (which has got to be coming soon). But really, her gigantic belly is enough of a billboard that we don't need any other references if that's what it's all about! :P

Love your icon, BTW.
