  • Enthralling and Sexy !

    This was an incredible episode. The fabulously good looking cyborg embarks on an edge of the seat detective odyssey resulting in the discovery of a Terminator from the future hiding in a wall !! Which Cameron subsequently defeats. This Terminator had been sent back in time to shoot a governor but overshot the timeline and ended up in the 20's . So he waited for about 90 years to shoot the governor.
    There is a great part near the end. She Returns to the library after defeating the Terminator and puts makeup on her face to hide the battle scars. The curator in the wheelchair Says "Fighting with your brother again ay" and Summer Glau plays it completely dead pan as if nothing has happened . It is very funny and poignant. Showing great insight into the whole ethos of this great show. Season 2 started slow but is building to a great enthralling series of shows. They should have made a movie from this story. It could have been written by the great Harlan Ellison himself. Wonderful stuff and very very well played by Summer Glau.
