12:14 am - The Fight for Our Tomorrow Starts Today
So I am totally in this flippin' sweet fan video declaring my love for The Sarah Connor Chronicles in the vain and futile hope that Fox will care. Check it out! roxybisquaint is in it too!

But I hope my hope is not vain and futile because OMG WHY HAVEN'T MORE PEOPLE BEEN WATCHING THIS SHOW. I haven't wanted a show to be renewed this badly since Veronica fucking Mars.

The Sarah Connor ChroniclesCollapse )

"WHO DO I NEED TO SLEEP WITH TO GET ANOTHER SEASON?"

Dude I am so with you on that!!!!!

Just caught up on the finale two episodes, frak yeah, brilliant stuff!!!

I am miserable because I also fear the worst. Am hoping that some FOX execs might have actually watched the finale and realise the awesomes potential for another season right there. :)

Sarah Connor is motherfucking saving the goddamn world.

Hi. You don't know me but I followed a link from coffeeandink and this totally needs to be on an icon. If it will fit.

Aw, Mely linked me? Neat!

And if someone makes an icon out of it, let me know! If there's one thing I like, it's profanity.

She just needed...someone.

I immediately figured the Roger imprint is of a person she actually knew who is probably dead.

(Random Danny Dyson mention!! roxybisquaint, your theory may be correct!!)

*takes bow*
It was that Cyberdyne logo that led me to Danny Dyson. Before I was thinking that he inadvertently created this other AI and it all just kind of got out of control. But once tat DA said he'd been missing, I'd guess he was kidnapped by Kaliba and forced to help them.

That wasn't Mute Chola, was it?

Dude. You didn't recognize her? I *loved* mute!Chola. So happy they brought her back and they did it in a way that was totally fitting for the story.

what was with the bizarre repetition/mirroring between him and Weaver?

I didn't understand that either. Murch said he'd changed a wire in John Henry and it "tweaked" him, so I guess that was the cause? Not sure. It was odd, but fun anyway.

HOLY SHIT THAT WAS TOTALLY WEAVER ON THE SUB!

Yeah I still think there's only one liquid metal, not a bunch of them. I keep hearing people say there's a whole faction of liquid metal, but I think Weaver is the one and only and Skynet boxed her because she was a threat. I think Skynet is well aware of her existence because I think Skynet created her. What Skynet isn't aware of is that resistance fighters picked up that box, opened it, released her and she time jumped.

WEAVER LIQUID METALLING A SAFETY BARRIER. ELLISON, FOR FUCK'S SAKE, TELL ME YOU SAW THAT. ALSO WHY DID YOU HAVE NO REACTION TO THAT.

Yeah they really rushed that ending too much. We got almost no reaction out of anyone for the big moment where they see Weaver is OMG LIQUID METAL!!!!!

AND THEN WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO CAMERON?!?! HER CHIP IS GONE AND SHE LOOKS LIKE SHIT. IS SHE DEAD? DID JOHN HENRY SWITCH THEIR CHIPS? WHERE IS THE "I'M SORRY, JOHN" MESSAGE COMING FROM?

I think john Henry loaded himself (the software from The Turk) onto Cameron's chip so he could be mobile. He never had a chip of his own because Sarah smashed Cromartie's chip. When Ellison brought the body to Weaver, it was Chipless. That's why JH always had to be connected to The Turk. But now he's using Cameron's chip and he and Cameron are both in there.

The "I'm sorry John" was just a message Cameron left behind for John. She typed it in the computer and put it on a loop so he'd see it.

it also kept us from knowing HOW OLD HE WAS. This is blowing my mind here.

Future!John wasn't always 17-year-old time-jumping John. Back in last season's finale, Derek told John "I celebrated your 30th (birthday) with you." So the timeline we're in now is not the timeline from them. This is a new future and I'm sure John will come back from it, not stay and become the leader of the resistance. They've obviously already got a leader (maybe Savannah Weaver?).

Dude. You didn't recognize her?
It's been, like, a YEAR since we last saw her! And she looked different. Darker?

John and Sarah, at least, have experience with liquid metal. Ellison should have had his goddamn mind blown. But all he could manage was a "You...?"

I think john Henry loaded himself (the software from The Turk) onto Cameron's chip so he could be mobile. He never had a chip of his own because Sarah smashed Cromartie's chip. When Ellison brought the body to Weaver, it was Chipless. That's why JH always had to be connected to The Turk. But now he's using Cameron's chip and he and Cameron are both in there.
Yeah, I forgot that he was chipless. That all makes sense now. But, ah, Cameron inside John Henry! As if Garret Dillahunt needs ANOTHER role to play.

Back in last season's finale, Derek told John "I celebrated your 30th (birthday) with you." So the timeline we're in now is not the timeline from them.
Oh!! Good, thank you for that confirmation that that Derek is NOT the same Derek John meets in this episode. Because otherwise it made no sense that Derek never mentioned that fact.

This is a new future and I'm sure John will come back from it, not stay and become the leader of the resistance. They've obviously already got a leader (maybe Savannah Weaver?).
You think? I think he's going to stay and become leader. There's no reason to send him to the future if he's just going to come back five minutes later. Although the idea of Savannah growing up to form the Resistance is pretty awesome. Especially because it means they would have to cast a hot redhead next year!

Were we supposed to buy that he believed Sarah? Or was that just an excuse for Josh Malina to show his prowess at the dramatic monologue?

I didn't know! Perhaps the latter?

(So her nuclear reactor wasn't leaking? Was that what he determined with his breast exam?)

Seems so.

It looked like she was intentionally keeping her body count low.

I noticed that! Seems like her choices were being tempered by what John would like.

(Oh my God, Sarah and Ellison are going to have to raise Savannah now!)

I kinda love this notion.

As for Dollhouse.... Also, what the hell, take off your damn high heels when you're running away from shit.

It's not possible to run in heels the way she was running. At least, not without serious ankle injury risk!

Although it doesn't seem like he's the one doing the imprint hacking

Yeah, I don't think so either.

Was Kyle supposed to look like he recognized him?
I don't know! That was a weird look. I think maybe he was attuned to the family resemblance?

Also, they REALLY needed an older actor because he and John look to be the same age and I find that creepy because they wouldn't send a 17yr old back to seduce Sarah would they?
Well, Michael Biehn was 28 when the first movie came out...and so was Linda Hamilton! Huh, they were born the same year. Jonathan Jackson is 27! So, huh, he's the right age; he just looks a lot younger than Michael Biehn did at that age.

My anxiety over loosing SCC has caused me to forrage for anything related to the show, and wound up here from a rec by coffeeandink. Guess there's not much to add by now, even though I'm still \o/ over the possible outcomes to that finale.

I do believe John will be staying in the future next season, then return to Sarah's time, if we get to keep the show. I'm guessing that's why new characters plus old characters were reintroduced, so that Sarah will have more to interact with in her story(Chola, maybe the new agent? I'm pretty sure she'll be too pissed with Ellison to have much to do with him atm *g*) Savannah needs to not go away. Maybe Weaver set something up in regards to Ellison?

As for Weaver, I do believe she meant it when she said her answer was no in Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter. Like she told John Henry, people will disappoint you. She turned down John's offer and went about doing it her own way, without having to be bogged down and answering to those silly humans.

FOX would eb absolute dolts to let the show go now. If I were them, I'd swap the timeslot to another day better suited for this show, do a series marathon towards the end of summer to rope in new viewers and suft the wave of the new Terminator movie. There's great viewer potential there *crosses fingers* I mean, just a month ago the show got a two page spread in Empire Movie magazine, and a very positive one at that.

Oh, and
Ok, will stop stalking your journal now ;)

Ooh!! The icon!! Coooool! Did you make it? (How hard would it be to make it say "goddamn" instead of "goddamned"? I am anal.)

I didn't know about the spread in Empire; that's pretty sweet.
