I thought 'Vick's Chip' was a great episode--very creepy, with lots of interesting material to reflect on where Cameron is concerned. I like the way she fits in the show because she's not the only one whose motivations are called into question. Sarah and John are constantly second-guessing what they should or shouldn't do as well--the path to stopping the future is never clear and while Cameron's way is brutal, it might also be their only chance. I like that paradox. And like John I want to trust Cameron. But for that reason I'm also wary of her: she's seductive, and potentially unpredictable. But I found her having her chip removed really confronting--especially since we know that she was moved by the death of the other terminator.
And now she's 'sploded?! Nooooo!! They must do some time-jumpy business to get her back. *nods*
Oh, and I loved the scene where John went to see his wee!father play baseball in the park. That was gorgeous. I think John's shaping up as my second favourite character because his longing for family seems so palpable and because of his trust in Cameron.
The other Cameron scene I loved was the 'no, it belongs to the guy I killed and stuffed in the trunk' scene. *facepalm* If she comes back, they really need to do some more house-training.
So what happened with this show? It got cut short because of the writer's strike, is that right? But there's a second season on the cards? But not officially yet?
