I was thankfully spoiled or I'd be gutted. Still very WHAT. THE. HELL.

Damn, what a script for Brian to get, eh? "Here's your two lines in the ep, and then you get shot. Bye." Though he's kind of gotten the short end of the stick this season anyway, with the Jesse side story that didn't go anywhere and other than that he didn't really do much. So that's a disappointment.

But, OTOH, (1) the show's more than likely not coming back anyway, so it's kind of a moot point, and (2) if I want to fic Derek, this is the easiest canon in the world to bring him back. SO THERE, SHOW. I KNOW FROM FIX-IT FIC, and this? THIS IS EASY.

In other news: SARAH ARRESTED? Crap.

And I'm really loving the Weaver-Savannah-John Henry stuff, too. Weaver's line about "saving John Henry to save Savannah" is really interesting, and presuming she was telling the truth, is pretty much an admission that she's trying to create an alternative Skynet.

Whoever said that Weaver could wear a t-shirt proclaiming herself a terminator, and Ellison wouldn't GET IT was right. C'mon, man, you've got to be figuring out SOMETHING. Maybe not she's a T-1000, because he wouldn't know about that, but hell, how many hints that she knows about the future war do you need?

Hm. Watching that scenelet in front of the t.v.s with John and Cameron I realized I'm not very interested in a show with only them. I like Sarah, Derek, and the Weaver-John Henry story. and though I think both Dekker and Summer are doing well, I don't care for the John Cameron dynamic. All the intimations of whatever the hell is going on with them in the future are creepy, so their present interactions are sort of tainted by that. I like both of them with other characters much better. Like, oh, DEREK.

damn.




I'm gonna go find my copy of last night's Supernatural, and be glad I have my pretty boys staring agog at Wincest for a laugh.

I can't take all my various angsty WIPs right now.

Yes. THIS.

I noticed last night that Weaver said Ellison has only been working for her a few months, which continues to put Alpine Fields in a strange place in the timeline. So maybe there's still hope in your theory? Maybe?

Though, even if it's the plan, I doubt it'll happen next week. Seems more logical to save his reappearance for a storyline next season, so barring a miracle from Fox, we'll only learn about it in Josh's blog... :(

*is sad*

I've had a really bad bout of TV-watching the past couple of weeks. Like you, SCC's John and Cameron doesn't really interest me. I do want to know what's going on at Zeira and what's going to happen with Sarah but, damn!, they killed my Derek and just like that!
lizardbeth: Derek and babylizardbeth_j on April 4th, 2009 10:45 pm (UTC)
yeah, that was just harsh. DEREK!

I wished they'd used him better this past season - seems they were so focused on making sure Sarah-Derek were antagonistic that they kind of lost Derek's badassery and usefulness most of the time (not to mention made both of them look sort of stupid). So I miss Early!Derek more, if that makes sense, but still. *sad*

First season Derek was all sorts of awesome and amazing, I agree. *still misses him, either way*

If they bring Derek back as a cyborg, I will exhibit no surprise.
lizardbeth: Derek and Sarahlizardbeth_j on April 4th, 2009 10:48 pm (UTC)
well, I will, but that's because I'm pretty sure the show's getting canned. But if it beats the odds and comes back, Derek could too, very easily. But I don't know if they want to, since they kind of lost track of what to do with him anyway.

It made me remember our talk about time loops and inevitability of AIs way back at the beginning of the series. I wonder if it's a way of trying to stop the war once and for all. The friendly AI. The one that likes humans enough not to preemptively remove the threat. And John learning to trust and depend on Cameron is the same on the other side. Grooming leaders into not!enemies.
lizardbeth: Derek and Sarahlizardbeth_j on April 6th, 2009 05:54 am (UTC)
yeah, that's very possible (though given T2, John was probably already primed for that part of it). Certainly Weaver seems to have little interest in John Connor, which is strange for a anything sent back in time by Skynet. So who sent her back? Herself? That other faction Future!John tried to ally with? But then how'd she get back in time, if John and/or Skynet had control of the time machine.

need moar show... *cries*

I noticed that too. And I think she was the one who sent the police to arrest Sarah. No killing Connors. Awfully nice of her.
I wonder if she is the T-1000 from LJoJC but comes from different timeline - the one where (when?) she said yes.
