TSCC quit making me think so much!

Ourselves Alone wasn't a bad episode by any means, but there was so much talk about this being the start of total kickass-ness that would roll to the finale that I felt a little let down. I know many people loved it, so maybe my expectations were just too high. It was mainly set-up for all the OMG to come, rather than being the start of the OMG. Also, following the total awesomeness of SMWWSMS, it was going to be impossible to blow me away again so soon.



bleached skulls!

My favorite moment of this episode was Riley sitting in the kitchen holding a bleach cleaner when John walks in with a skull t-shirt on. LOL.


timebomb

Watching Cameron hand the detonator to John, this little exchange from Automatic for the People came to mind:

Sarah: Like a timebomb, am I just going to go off one day?
Cameron: I don't know. Am I?

There's got to be some foreshadowing in there.


killer Sarah

When Sarah got that gun out and loaded a round, she was going to take care of the Riley problem once and for all. But she halted and, as if she didn't trust herself to not do it, she completely unloaded the gun. I wasn't really buying that scene (it just didn't play well to me), but I very much like the idea of it. This is the fallout from killing Winston and I'm sure it's going to continue.


Sarah & Cameron

Cameron's mission is to protect John, obviously, but it would seem now that it's also to train John. She's gotten him to hack into Vick's Chip. She's walked him through removing her own chip. And now she's got him enrolled in Robot Repair 101: How to fix a cyborg's hand (he definitely needs a second class since that hand's still twitching). So Cameron is protecting and training John, eh? The blurring of Sarah and Cameron continues. It's no coincidence that we have Sarah and Cameron both contemplating killing Riley in the same episode, or that we have Cameron telling John she can't self-terminate on the heels of an episode that had Sarah twice saying she'd die for her son. I also find it interesting that Sarah told John she didn't believe him while Cameron entrusted her "life" with him. Lines are blurring. B-l-u-r-r-i-n-g.

You know what's kind of freaky about the Sarah-Cameron thing is that future!John seems to have basically sent himself back a metal mother to save his human mother and then help do her job (and surely he knew Sarah wouldn't be too happy about that).

Oh fuck me. I was just reminded of the horrible film I had to watch in psychology class years ago about Harlow and his totally evil surrogate mother experiments on monkeys. They were given fake "mothers" — one made of cloth (comforting but no nourishment) and one made of wire that had food (nourishing but no comfort). And then he scared the baby monkeys with little robots (yes robots!) to see who they'd run to. They ran to the cloth mother. Wow, really? Thanks for that brilliant bit of research, evil Harlow. Glad you're dead.

And I'm now trying to stop myself from thinking about future!John as conducting fucked up psychological experiments on his younger self. I'm also going to sidestep the bizarreness of future!John sending himself a very pretty, teenage-looking robot mother (clearly he has some issues). Anyway...

I'm thinking John is going to have to choose between his cloth mother and wire mother at some point. He already did choose in Samson & Delilah (it's no wonder Sarah's been such a mess), but that wasn't so much John choosing Cameron over Sarah, as it was John choosing Cameron over no Cameron... hmm... while holding a gun on Sarah. Heh. Yeah, he chose. But we'll attribute that to OMG I JUST SNAPPED SOMEONE'S NECK! He was confused and he'll have to choose again when he's not so confused. Then again, if they keep getting more alike, he may not have to.

You know, when Derek showed up last season (and killed Andy and blew away that guy in the alley), I fully expected we were going to have this sort of battle for John's soul between Sarah and Derek. But it never happened. Instead, Derek got shoved over to Jesse story so the battle for John's soul could play out between Sarah and Cameron. Either way, it makes me think of the final voice over from Platoon:

I think now, looking back. We did not fight the enemy, we fought ourselves. And the enemy was in us. The war is over for me now, but it will always be there the rest of my days, as I'm sure Elias will be — fighting with Barnes for what Rhah called "possession of my soul". There are times since that I've felt like the child born of those two fathers. But be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and meaning to this life.


future!John

Cameron keeps the spare parts because future!John told her to. John's not too happy about that. "Future me? Yeah, why doesn't that surprise me?"

This is good. This is awesome. I think we might be moving into a John story that I can finally sink my teeth into (and I've been waiting forever). Future!John is calling the shots, pulling the strings, more or less directing the present-day battle from the future. He is the man behind the curtain (although I've wondered if Sarah's line from Mr Ferguson was some kind of hint to the contrary: "This is it. There's nothing else behind the curtain.").

Sarah has her own issues with future!John. That's been on the table since Gnothi Seauton and hit on in several episodes. Mostly it seems to center around her rivalry with Cameron, but you can't exactly overlook the big bloody to-do list future!John dropped on her the second she tried to get some shut-eye in Automatic for the People either. Future!John keeps her busy. And it's kind of cool — mother and son fighting the battle together across time — even if we're not entirely sure future!John is such a swell guy.

But now we're getting John into the future!John mix. It's not like he's been oblivious to it, but I think the amount of influence future!John has on his life is really starting to sink in. Unless we find out at some point that Cameron is some rogue machine with her own agenda, we're operating with the assumption that she's carrying out orders from future!John, which apparently allow for lying and killing when she deems it necessary. So not only is future!John keeping John in the dark about a lot of things, he's also got ideas that present John is feeling unsure about (which is probably why future!John is keeping him in the dark).

Not unlike Jesse, it seems that future!John is trying to change John so he turns out different. Since future!John likes using reprogrammed machines, he's using Cameron to give himself a head start on it. John is learning now what he would have learned much later. And by doing so, he may ultimately solve the "sometimes they go bad" thing. But how does John feel about being manipulated by his future self? I think there's a John Connor identity crisis brewing and at some point he's going to decide his future self is doing things wrong.

Meanwhile, Catherine Weaver is giving Skynet a head start. She's using Ellison to shape John Henry (Skynet), like future!John is using Cameron to shape John Connor (the resistance). Ellison is teaching John Henry about humans, while Cameron is teaching John Connor about machines. John and John are learning about each other — learning about their future enemy. So, both sides of future war are actively trying to advance themselves through changes in the present.


Riley

She's dead. I'm not sad. I thought she was going to be an interesting character when she first arrived on the scene, but in the end, she wasn't. The only cool thing Riley did was provide a major contrast to Sarah (especially in The Good Wound). On a character level, I guess that was her real purpose and it's been served. So good riddance.


Evil Jesse

I think Jesse's plan is much bigger than using wild child Riley to drive a wedge between John and Cameron. Her plan seems to be to bust up the whole Connor clan. I've gone back and forth about who Riley was there to get between — Sarah and John or Cameron and John? Because really, she kind of came between both. And with Jesse in the picture, where's Derek been? He's hardly ever around the Connor house. Now Jesse's trying to make Derek feel emasculated by Sarah and she's trying to plant suspicions in Sarah's head about Derek being a perv. Yep, I think she's trying to break them them ALL up. Why? To what gain? I don't know.

ETA: I think I know. If the Connor clan is ripped apart, John will lose his entire support system — training, protecting, guidance, etc. It'll no doubt make him a weaker leader, one that could perhaps be more easily overthrown by Jesse's faction in the future. So I'll bet her goal is just the opposite of what she's said. She doesn't want a better John Connor, she wants a worse one. She wants him out as leader so her faction can take control of the resistance.

With Jesse playing guidance counselor, she's set the wheels in motion for suspicion to fall on Sarah when Riley is found shot to death. The foster dad thinks Sarah's a bad mother. The social worker had her doubts about Sarah's parenting and knew about guns in the home. Riley was probably last known to be heading to the Connor home. So the police are going to want to talk to Sarah about Riley's death. And let's not forget the introduction in Allison from Palmdale of overly suspicious Kacey baby-daddy, Trevor, the LAPD homicide detective. There's going to be BIG trouble ahead.

Oh! I was just thinking about Jesse bringing up that ridiculous Derek-as-perv suggestion. If she was able to drop that same info on the social worker, that could have cops questioning Derek, not Sarah. Or they might both be suspect. Actually, if Jesse thinks to plant the murder weapon in Derek's truck, he could find himself arrested for the murder, not just questioned... Oh Jesse, you are evil. Yeah, she's busting this family up good. Die, evil Jesse, DIE!

I was really pissed that Derek let Jesse's non-answer about judgment day slide. Would you? NO. That was dumb. But Derek hasn't exactly been smart about Jesse at any point, so I shouldn't be surprised.


Derek needs a major ass-kicking

Back to Jesse's evasiveness about judgment day: I think that means the j-day from her timeline is soon. VERY soon. Derek fucked things up good by killing Andy Goode. Future war sure seems to be going bad for the resistance. Skynet got the nuclear power plant, there are factions of humans fighting each other in the future, Catherine Weaver appearing (why, how and from when, we don't know) and getting her hands on The Turk...

This is all Derek's fault. Sarah will eventually put the pieces together and kick his ass for it. Before she beats the shit out of him, though, I think she's going to put a gun to his head and seriously contemplate pulling the trigger... "Lie to me again, I'll kill you."

Catherine is giving Skynet a head start. She's using Ellison to shape John Henry (Skynet), like future!John is using Cameron to shape John Connor (the resistance).

Hmm. My pet theory is that the two ladies who were introduced this season will be revealed to be playing against expectations: Catherine is a machine that's been drafted into the human resistance movement and is trying to mould John Henry into a kinder, gentler Skynet that won't be all GENOCIDE, WOO!; Jesse, meanwhile, is acting on behalf of an agenda that's gonna ultimately prove harmful to humanity's chances for survival. I can't really reconcile Catherine's behaviour towards Ellison and Savannah (and her laying waste to the facility where Skynet drones were being made--if she were trying to give Skynet a jump on Judgment Day, shouldn't she want that plant operational?)with the typical terminator agenda.

Also, there's more delicious delicious angst in the offing if it turns out Derek's been sleeping with a genuine threat to John/Sarah/FutureJohn, rather than just a slightly misguided fellow fighter. *g*

Ah yes. I guess there's really no denying the comparison of Jesse trying to mold John Connor and Catherine trying to mold John Henry. And also, Catherine doesn't seem to be in any hurry to start judgement day. She seems more concerned with developing a Skynet that will be stronger against its enemy. And Jesse made it a point to let us know she's not here to stop j-day, but to win the war — she wants a better leader for the resistance. Good call.

I still think future!John and Catherine make for a strong comparison too, though. The way this show uses characters to mirror each other, maybe we've just got a 3-way mirror going on.

Derek is going to be in so much trouble, isn't he? When he killed Andy Goode last season I kept waiting for him to learn the error of his ways. He didn't and then he used some little girl as bait against the gunman in the alley in WHB. This season when he got his Jesse story, I was like uh, what happened to Derek learning a lesson? But he will. He so clearly will.

Hmm, indeed.
The writer's room blog said, over the break, that they were going to explore why a machine would annihilate humanity. Was it lashing out in anger? Was it really trying to protect itself? What drives a machine to do this?

Then they wrote John Henry as a machine should be written - organic life means nothing to it because (much like Dr. Manhattan) it can't understand the miracle of the existence of life. It has no inherent bonds to it. Yes, Ellison's been yapping on and on about God, but as an abstract concept, God's not going to mean anything to a machine, I hate to break it to him. Though it seems to have slowly changed John Henry's mind, if I were writing the show, I wouldn't have let it. God is a human faith, a construct that exists outside the paradyme of logic, and I don't think John Henry is quite to that point yet he should be making leaps of faith (or if he is... EEK).

I agree with a lot you've said here. That episode r0xx0r3d my b0xx0rz, to use the l33t vernacular. The twitchy-Cameron thing has me REALLY SCARED, though. It's bad enough seeing Arnold calmly kill everything in his path, how much infinitely worse would it be seeing a twitchy psychotic terminator carving people up? EEK. I. Am. a-Scared.

I can't add much more intellectual commentary because you've said most of it, lol. It was a fascinating episode.

Oh and I love this part - "I'm also going to sidestep the bizarreness of future!John sending himself a very pretty, teenage-looking robot mother (clearly he has some issues). Anyway..."

HEEHEE!! They say deep down inside all men compare women to their mothers (well, presumably straight men anyway), you gotta wonder if this is true here, especially since we've done so many nods to Terminator 3 (the cancer is just one), and he said to Kate in T3 that she reminded him of his mother. I'm just amused by the whole concept, hehehe.

Thanks for another insightful entry.

Re: Hmm, indeed.
When Wisher told Derek he'd created an AI mind that grew angry and couldn't be reassured, I was curious about that. So I like that they're going to explore it through John Henry. I think you're wrong, though, that Ellison has softened John Henry or "changed his mind" about anything.

I think the thing Ellison doesn't quite get is that a machine can learn and understand the concept of God and it can learn that human life is sacred or any other values Ellison wants to teach it, but without the emotional backdrop to weigh those things against, they're just bits of data that the machine will use in its logical reasoning.

If, for example, John Henry sees that humans kill each other after being told that humans believe life is sacred, he could very well conclude that humans are illogical and bad — inferior to machines. I kind of think that's what's going to happen. We already had the ball joints observation. John Henry has basically already concluded that the humans' God is maybe not very logical since he didn't use more ball joints when he created them.

Either that or John Henry is just going to have an f(s)=s moment because of the contradictory nature of humans and then freak the fuck out (angry confused mind). :P

I'm not really sure where we're going with Cameron's twitchy hand (which is why I didn't even talk about it). I have no speculation on that. It could be that she'll kill again by accident or it could be that her hand will fail her in a crucial moment, causing her to fail in trying to protect John from some bad guy or machine. Actually, I think that second option is more likely given the Sarah-Cameron role reversals that have been going on.

Ooh. Love this post, as usual! I think this episode has set up a lot of awesome things for the rest of the season. I didn't think about Jesse breaking up the entire Connor clan, but it sure looks that way now that you point it out! But to what end? To force John to be more independent? To become a stronger leader?

I've been at a loss as to Jesse's intentions. I mean it can't be as straight-forward as she laid it out. It can't be that she's truly there to change John Connor for the better. But now I have a thought. If Jesse busts apart John's family — his support system, his protection, his trainers, I think it would weaken John, not strengthen him. And a weaker leader is easier to overthrow.

Future!John keeps her busy. And it's kind of cool — mother and son fighting the battle together across time — even if we're not entirely sure future!John is such a swell guy.

I have been so incredibly impressed with the way T:SCC integrates into the larger Terminator universe, but this in particular, is one of my favorite ways. I love the idea of Future!John sending these messages back to his mother because it's completely the other side of the coin from the tapes she made for him when she was pregnant (which I totally imagine Future!Emo!John listening and brooding to.) But unlike her messages, which were strictly one way, his are dynamic and have the potential to change everything.

I think there's a John Connor identity crisis brewing and at some point he's going to decide his future self is doing things wrong.

I am DYING to see that.

She's dead. I'm not sad.

:( I loved me some Riley. But I am glad she didn't go out like a punk. And holy shit, did girlfriend go a little bit totallybatshitcrazeee there at the end. Maybe John does like to date girls like Mom after all ...

Also, I detest Jesse and I am so happy she got a beatdown from Riley of all people.

This is all Derek's fault. Sarah will eventually put the pieces together and kick his ass for it. Before she beats the shit out of him, though, I think she's going to put a gun to his head and seriously contemplate pulling the trigger... "Lie to me again, I'll kill you."

Oh that's such a cool thing comparison you just pointed out! I never really thought about Sarah's tapes as her sending him messages. But yeah, I guess it really is since they tells him what he needs to know to do what he has to do.

Yeah John identity crisis could be very tasty indeed. I tend to think that's where season 3 will go with him. We've got a solid basis for it now with eh Jesse story. Once John finds out all about her and her faction, he's bound to get curious about his future self.

I was never a Riley hater. Im fact, I was one of the few that loved Riley from the minute she showed up. But that was when I thought she was normal girl. I didn't like her or her story much once I knew she was future girl.

I think I'll be very disappointed if Sarah doesn't kick Derek's ass. Whatever happens, she is surely gonna be PISSED.

"...once I knew she was a future girl" - Riley gave that away in one of the very first conversations she had with John. I'm surprised you missed that. I'm surprised John missed it. (Think back, it involved a mention of apples.)

I like(d) the Jesse-Riley storyline and not just because Leven and Stephanie are hotties.

Derek is the awesome. He has a cast-iron reason for keeping Jesse's existence secret from the rest of them - at least two now I come to think of it:

* OPSEC - what they don't know can't hurt Jesse. Derek is used to being a resistance fighter in the future war and, absent any important reason for Sarah et al to know about Jesse, it's safer for them all if they don't know about her and can't give her up if they're captured by Terminators and tortured.

* Cameron - Derek, quite rightly, is highly skeptical of Cameron and can't be sure how Cameron will react. Again, a Cameron gone bad can't harm Jesse if she doesn't know she's here. In fact it's not clear what view a protecting-John Cameron might take about Jesse in any case, machines thinking drastically differently humans at the best of times.

Using the little girl in the alley as a distraction ploy worked exactly well and there was no reason to suppose the bad guy would shoot her. The problems with shooting Andy Good you're going to have to explain to me, other than Jesse seeming to be keen to nix a Grandfather Paradox - does she know a lot more about the timelines than she's letting on?
johnnypate
Mar. 15th, 2009 09:13 pm (UTC)
Doh...
...confusing Andy Good with Fischer. Derek was right to shoot Andy Good (well, I would have in his situation) and, at that time, Derek certainly couldn't afford to confess to Sarah. It would seem to me that by now Sarah would have a lot more sympathy for Derek's action - given her subsequent instruction in the necessity for killing when the situation demands it.

Was trying to remember which ep Riley accidentally let slip she was future girl, I left a blog comment about sometime in Sept last year here: http://newfilmdimension.com/2008/09/16/the-sarah-connor-chronicles-season-2-review/

I know there was a lot of speculation when Riley appeared that she was from the future, but I didn't see any good evidence of it. The "carrots and apples" was clue, obviously, but not one that convinced me she was future girl. I figured it would have just as easily been an indicator that she was from some small town before running off to LA and ending up in foster care.

Riley was a great character in the beginning. I liked her a lot and I really didn't even mind so much when we found out she was working for Jesse, but that certainly made her less interesting to me instead of more. Her character seems a bit wasted now that she's already gone, though. She was a nice contrast to Sarah and I guess John has learned the lesson that you can't have personal relationships when you're a Connor and you're trying to save the world. "Do you care about this girl? Then leave her alone."

--

No one's ever going to convince me that Derek didn't gamble with that little girl's life in the alley. The most he could know is what he would do, not what Sarkissian's thug would do. If that guy had shot at Derek and been a bad shot, he might've hit the girl. He took a risk and he took it with an innocent girl's life.

The issue with Derek really comes down to loyalty. He was presumably sent to 2007 by future!John to gather intel and wait for Sarah and John and Cameron to show up so he could help them. He does that, but he was also carrying out his own agenda to kill Andy Goode (we have nothing to indicate future!John told him to do that).

Then his girlfriend shows up and she's surveilling John with a plot to change the course of his life, and Derek keeps it to himself. That's bad. It's also a bit hypocritical given the reaction he had about Charley back in D&D. "He's a liability... I can't believe you'd trust anybody." And yet Derek is trusting Jesse even after she initially lied to him about her reason for being there. I understand his desire to believe her and his desire to keep her hidden and all to himself. But the stakes are too high in this game for that.

Derek's starting to come around now — getting a teensy bit suspicious of Jesse and starting to form an actual emotional connection with Sarah because of Kyle. But I still say he needs a good ass kicking. ;)

(part one)
I thought Riley's behaviour in general was too off for there not be something "special" about her. Admittedly I haven't hung around in America that much but the apples (and carrots) as goodness in the future when they're taken for granted in the now has been used more than once to illustrate differences in mindset between the future warriors and present day. Your favourite Derek talked about it a lot when he first appeared.

It made more sense once it became clear Jesse (and Riley) are from a different timeline. Except that it raises the question - just how different a timeline? Does Jesse's mission actually make sense in this timeline, even given how the other timeline had played out? I'm thinking Jesse will be revealed to have some important information about keeping the timelines straight that means the inter-timeline narratives are consequential. Otherwise things are simply happening at random. Or, if that's not the case, then Jesse needs to realise her future quite likely has no relevance to her current timeline and her actions will have unpredictable effects given the outcomes she's seen are not necessarily causally related to anything at all in the timeline she's now in. So, at least we would get somebody (maybe Cameron ironically enough) saying to her, "You murdered Riley for no reason, your whole plan was stupid, misguided, and irrelevant, if only you'd thought things through." That would be neat. It would also be a neat reason why Cameron is reticent about revealing the future. She's not actually being coy, or hiding secrets of her own, it's simply that she knows it's largely pointless or even possibly counter-productive.

I agree that Derek is giving Jesse too much rope, though only since he realised she's from a different timeline and isn't really "his" Jesse. There are some signs he's doubting her now though. Note that Derek doesn't know Jesse's plans. He thinks Jesse jumped back to escape hell and live in paradise, he's not hiding Jesse's surveillance from Sarah at all.

So what if John didn't tell Derek to kill Andy Goode? Derek saw his shot and took it. Soldiers in successful armies do that, seize initiative. Especially in guerrilla armies. The only problem is if future John specifically told him not to kill Andy, which I'm sure you'll agree is extremely unlikely. The over-riding mission for Derek is to defeat Skynet. Killing Andy Goode clearly and unambigously furthered that mission. Telling Sarah about killing Andy, however, would most certainly not.

(part 2)
...contd...

I disagree that Derek's attitude re tactics and strategy needs adjusting. He's a battle-hardened leader from the future war guerrilla army who has been fighting a numerically and materially superior enemy by any and every means possible. It's Sarah (and John) who need to get more in line with Derek's way of thinking. This is total war. True, if they can pull out some logic that shows John Connor fighting total war with the threat of extinction and still being able to hold the minutiae of the moral high ground I'll be impressed. But guerrilla armies use child suicide bombers because they have to not because they're evil and want to destroy all that is good and pure. Yes, Derek took a big - but calculated - risk with the little girl's life. He did the right thing in the circumstances. In actual fact, the one who's to blame for that situation is Sarah: she had an easy head shot to take out the guy, whereas Derek had to manoeuvre himself into position for it. It was an example of Sarah's tendency to fail to take the shot when she had it that could have gotten the wrong someone killed. For me that point of that whole scene was Sarah's concern for John preventing her from protecting him and Derek showed her what needs to be done to get it done. That problem came back to bite Sarah in, "Brothers of Nablus" too. Whether she's actually getting a clue remains to be seen, though there is some evidence of it in recent eps.

I was in the Cold War British Army and believe me, once you went down the rabbit hole of what the world would have looked liked after a major nuclear exchange, and how you and your comrades would have to deal, it really made you question pretty much all your assumptions about pretty much everything. Derek's bad-assery is one of the best things in TSCC, whereas JC's and Sarah's continual emo whinery makes me wonder if they've been paying attention at all to the psychopathic robot killing machines trying to exterminate them and the rest of humanity. It's not like it's only a possible threat for them - they're really living it.

In any case, the only one who stands any chance of kicking Derek's ass is Cameron and since Derek is looking for the slightest excuse to blow her away she'd better not have a glitch and fail to take her shot when she gets it. I reckon if anyone is going to kill Derek it's Jesse... at least, that's how I'd write it!

Re: Derek
Apologies re Derek, you're right that in 2:10 he found surveillance photos and Jesse told him she was sent back by a faction to kill Cameron. I can see why Derek sympathises with that idea and believes now he knows what Jesse is up to he can keep a lid on it. It does seem to me that if he finds out about Riley he should be seriously pissed at Jesse for not telling him the whole truth when she had the chance. I'm still in sympathy with him, since clearly the current John and Sarah are pretty flakey and he's never liked the idea of Cameron, either in the future or the now. Having Jesse in reserve to take out Cameron still seems to be a smart idea from Derek's POV, IMHO. I still say he's the only one who looks like he's approaching playing with a full deck (and even he is a ways from that!).
