RECESSIONAL: So after the commercial break, everyone is down in the hidden basement with all the security monitors, even Zoe and her mother, which made me think I'd dozed off and missed a scene. Derek says this is just the way Skynet work camps were set up, with people watching other people on behalf of the machines. "Who are you people?" says Zoe's mother, and Sarah says she wants to know what was being made in the factory, and who owned it, etc. Zoe's mom is all, "How would I know?" and Sarah points out that the tunnel led to her garage. "My husband's garage," corrects Stella. She's not telling them anything, because she doesn't know them, and for all she knows they could be a terrorist organization, and Sarah says they are a terrorist organization, and if someone hadn't blown up the plant already, she would, like way to encourage Stella to be cooperative, and then there's John saying her husband isn't dead: "Not yet." And he takes out a gun and shoves a clip into it and I can't think of a less threatening image than that. Zoe pleads that her dad is innocent, and was all freaked out when he heard the news about everyone dead at the plant, and then there's Sarah and John yelling that they just want to know what was being made at the plant, and Stella says no one knew, and Sarah yells something about sleepwalking through their lives, and then Stella and Zoe admit that they're pretending Daddy's dead so they can get insurance money and move somewhere else and start over, which kind of makes Zoe's earlier snide comments about Henry's family getting insurance money seem even meaner. And Stella is defending looking the other way and not asking questions because that's what everyone else did, and that's maybe what Sarah would do because that's what most people do. Or something. For the love of god somebody SHOOT something. Or someone!
And then Cameron's all, "I pulled this from the archives" and we watch some footage of Ed Hoskins and Zoe's dad kill Mike Thompson and his family. "Daddy?" says Zoe. "You might not like asking questions," Sarah tells Stella, "but me, once I get started, I can't stop." Then John finds some boots with dried gunk caked on them and says he thinks he knows where George is.
So the Connor crew goes strolling outside, where Diana sees Sarah and comes running over to say she's been watching her, and you know what she thinks. "Ed would say you don't smell right." "Well, I guess Ed would know," says Sarah, and Diana says she deserves the truth, and Sarah says, "Sometimes it's better not to ask too many questions." So when it comes to what other people do, they're pathetic for not asking questions. But when it comes to what Sarah's doing, it's better not to ask too many questions. Got it. Sarah gets in the truck and the Connor crew drives off.
