EXT. SUBURBAN NEIGHBORHOOD
CG: April 21, 2011 - JUDGEMENT DAY
Two young boys are PLAYING CATCH in their front yard.
LENA HEADEY (V.O.)
When John was younger and unconscious he was much cuter because he wasn't all angsty about the future. I miss those days.
The youngest boy is KYLE REESE, age whatever. He SUCKS AT BASEBALL.

There's only one more episode left? Boo! This show is just starting to get really good!

When we last left the Connor clan, Derek Reese (brother of Kyle, uncle of John) was bleeding to death on the kitchen table.
While I don't generally enjoy flashback episodes, this one was fairly good in terms of moving the story along, and building up the tension between Derek and John.
I should also note that most of us here at Geektress just noticed the other day that Summer Glau's character is named Cameron, as in, James. Big duh for us.

This was an excellent episode, and I really hope it's a sign that this show has hit its stride. Despite his 90210 past, Brian Austin Green is fantastic, and hopefully lasts longer than cute nerdy character Andy Goode. Questions I have after watching this episode: Why wouldn't Sarah Connor try to look up Kyle Reese in the present, even if he's only 2 months old? Wouldn't she want to make sure he makes it through the apocalypse, as well? And isn't it interesting that all of John's strategical and combative training comes out of his mother knowing that the robot war is coming, but the first time around, did John know about the war, or did he have to send Kyle Reese back to not only father him, but scare the bejeesus out of Sarah so that John could be raised as a little guerrilla soldier? In other words: What happens if John Connor never learns how to play chess?

INT. PLASTIC SURGEON'S OFFICE
I'm dictating stuff!
The PLASTIC SURGEON hears a noise and goes to INVESTIGATE. The BAD TERMINATOR, who now has a dumb name which is used a lot in this episode, CROMARTIE, is scanning through patient records on a COMPUTER. He stops when he gets to a picture of GARRET DILLAHUNT, who is DREAMY despite his past gigs which included playing a GREASY RUSSIAN MOBSTER and a GEOLOGIST WHO LIKED TO KILL PROSTITUTES FOR FUN.

INT. CLASSROOM FROM THE 1940s
A bunch of SCIENTISTS are writing EQUATIONS on a BLACKBOARD.
LENA HEADEY (V.O.)
I am obsessed with scientists because they keep making killer robots that time travel.
LENA SHOOTS the SCIENTISTS dead. Then they turn in to TERMINATORS and AIM THEIR GUNS AT HER.

OPENING CREDIT MONTAGE
Previously, SARAH AND JOHN CONNOR TELEPORTED IN TO THE FUTURE.
What you did not see was that the BAD TERMINATOR from the PREVIOUS EPISODE also TELEPORTED to 2007. His SKULL FLIES AT THE CAMERA.

Since this show debuted to great ratings due to a writer's strike, and since our recaps are more fun when they've got a "hook" (we're like pop music that way!) all Sarah Connor Chronicles recaps shall pay tribute to the great screenwriters of our time through script form. (Thanks to Rod Hilton at The Editing Room for giving me the idea.)
