  • What's up with Sarah's obsession with the three dots? Meanwhile, Jesse's plans complicate things further, and Weaver introduces Ellison to someone very important. Perhaps Weaver can introduce Jesse to a wormhole or something while she's at it.

  • Once again the show not only entertains but explores human nature.

    • John: So your foster parents ... it's not really what I imagined. Riley: (smiles) Yeah, they're nice. They're too nice. They're aliens. You see those kids down there? They're not theirs. They're just losers, and cast-offs and rejects. They run a loser camp here.

    • Riley: (Looking at herself in a dressing-room triple mirror) There's a lot of mirrors in this world. Did you notice that? I don't think I can do this anymore.
      Jesse: I'm sorry. It's not easy, I understand. And maybe you even have some real feelings for him. Who wouldn't? He's John Connor. There's a reason people follow him all over hell.

    • Alex: (Responding to Sarah's reminiscing about dancing in the 80's) Big hair? Cameron: (Smiling) It's the hardest thing to get right. (Awkward silence as others look at Cameron.) Cameron: Hair. Alex: Right.

    • Ellison: Whether it had any feeling about Dr Sherman shouldn't matter, if you had taught it to value Sherman's life. Someone killed a man, and it wasn't John Henry. Excuse me. (he starts to leave) Weaver: What would you teach it? What would you teach it if you could? Ellison: You want to teach it commands. Start with the first Ten.

    • Murch: (referring to the Babylon AI) Blackout should have shut it down completely. Ellison: Should have? Murch: Babylon routed every watt from the generators to keep itself running. Ellison: So it broke the rules? Murch: It invented new ones.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: Cameron looks at the chip and actually sees that it is not built in 12nm-technology. The spectrum of light human eyes can see ranges from 380nm to 780nm. So to actually see the (atomic) structure of the chip, Cameron would have to have a larger spectrum of visibility, but when so, she wouldn't be able to see the chip from that distance, since air-molecules would be in her sight. In order to see structures in the nm-size, one requires an evacuated environment (vacuum).

    Allusions (2)

    • Styx:
      When Alex, Xander, Sarah and Cameron meet for the first time to initiate a deal for the chip they speak about the '80s, "far back" (when the Army started to show interest in AI technologies). Alex states: "That's how I mark the decade: for me the '80s will always be Duran Duran." "Duran Duran, I loved Duran Duran..." Sarah replies. Way later in this episode when the chip deal is done Sarah closes the table by saying "Dōmo arigatō". Alex: "I didn't know... you spoke Japanese." Sarah: "I was into Styx before Duran Duran. Styx is a pop-rock group founded in the '70s and released in the early '80s their hit-single "Mr. Roboto". This song represents the use of technology and robots in the '80s and features the memorable line "Dōmo arigatō, Mr. Roboto, thank you very much, Mr. Roboto..." That's probably where Sarah picked up that line of Japanese.

    • Gale: The name chosen by John for Sarah's pseudonym in this episode is Gale, which, like her previous pseudonym Baum, is connected to his favorite childhood novel The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy Gale is the heroine of the novel, which was written by L. Frank Baum. Gale is also the name of Film Producer and second wife of James Cameron - Gale Anne Hurd.
