She angrily snaps that she told him not to come after her. "Yeah, bad John Connor. Ground me," he says. Sarah figures she should shut up now. John asks Cameron if she's OK, and she says she's not one hundred percent. "How far from one hundred percent are you?" asks Sarah, telling John that she needs to meet Catherine Weaver, and Cameron needs to destroy whatever's in the basement.
But first, no one can escape the corporate waiting room. John and Sarah sit in the lobby. No time like the present to have awkward family discussions, right? John asks his mom if she's sick. He tells her Cameron thinks she is. Sarah doesn't really answer. John points out she's lost weight.
Then the elevator door dings, and Ellison gets out. The two of them stand up. John says, "I love you," before walking towards Ellison, and after a moment, she follows.
In the elevator, Ellison asks where Cameron is. "In the car," says Sarah, doing her little head-bobbing thing she does when she's lying. "Expecting trouble?" he says. Although if they were expecting trouble, they'd kinda want Cameron with them? He asks if they're armed. Sarah's all, no, expecting trouble? If I'm Ellison, that answer is a big fat, "Yes. Always."
Down in the basement, Cameron is launching a security guard against a wall. She makes her way to John Henry's room, and they say hello to each other. I think you two will really hit it off! You both like the movies of Wes Andersen, and both of you need periodic lube jobs. He says, "Will you join us?" Cameron pulls out her knife, and shuts the door. But now we know that her knife is just part of her foreplay.
Up in Weaver's office, she asks them why they're here, but then turns it around and thanks them for saving Savannah: "She's the light of my life, and I'd be lost without her." Sarah asks where Savannah is. "Let's assume school," says Weaver. Hee. She tells John that they've got a common enemy, and Sarah jumps in to say "Kaliba?" only Weaver's not talking to her. And she's talking about Skynet. Weaver says she knows Savannah told them about John Henry, which is why their cyborg is in the basement right now.
Suddenly Ellison notices that Sarah looks like she's standing in front of a green screen or something, and outside Weaver's office is something approaching, in the air, rather quickly. It gets a little closer, and it turns out it's a hunter-killer headed straight at the window. Weaver goes into liquid metal form and spreads her arms out and forms a shield to protect them from the flames and the exploding glass. "Run!" she says to the humans crouching behind her. She doesn't have to tell them twice. Actually, she shouldn't have had to tell them once. The gang goes flying out the door, and Weaver morphs back into human form. And the eel that was formerly in the aquarium slithers into her ankle, joining her body. Nice.
