BURIAL: We're at the cemetery now, everyone standing around looking glum as a casket gets lowered into the earth. Looks like Henry's dad. He's sitting there with presumably his mom as the coffin goes into the ground. "They always did want to be rich," Zoe tells John, adding, "His mom always wanted the good things. Careful what you wish for, huh?" John asks her what she means. Insurance company payouts, Zoe explains. "We're all rich," she says, with a sarcastic "woo-hoo!" added on. John asks what Henry's dad did. Same as everybody else: went to work in the morning, came home at night, and didn't talk about it. John wants to know why all the secrecy over heating and air-conditioning, and Zoe figures that it wasn't heating and air-conditioning at all, but some government project, because there were a lot of real smart people in town here. I hope there aren't some people watching this episode who do work in the industry and might feel maligned by Zoe's suggestion that these people were too smart to work in the air-conditioning industry. John asks her if she thinks someone sabotaged the plant. "It wasn't an accident, John. Moo." Then while someone starts singing "I'll Fly Away," Zoe goes over to stand near Henry, which is awfully big of her.
So the Connors are now all standing around casting meaningful glances at each other. Then Walsh shows up at the funeral, followed closely by Derek. Sarah moves away from Diana a little bit to tell Derek, "The guy who shot me is either a serial killer or a true believer," she says, adding that his wife thinks he was murdered. Derek thinks she's right, and asks if she heard anything about the drone Sarah thought she saw. "I don't think I saw it, I saw it," says Sarah. She notices Walsh and asks who he is. Derek says he's looking for something. "I figure the best way to find out what it is is to let him find it." Sarah susses out that Walsh "made" Derek and will try to lose him. "But he doesn't know me. I'll handle it." "You always do," says Derek. Yeah, great plan, unless, you know, Walsh, who is standing right there, sees Derek and Sarah standing there talking to each other. "Skynet's here, Reese. I can feel it," says Sarah. Derek has a little chuckle over her calling him that because it's what she used to call his brother. "Maybe you should try to let him go," says Derek. Nice. You know, Reese is your last name, asshole. "Maybe you should," says Sarah.
So Walsh leaves and starts wandering around, and Sarah follows him, crouching for cover behind a car as Walsh goes skulking around the side of a house, and then prying open a window and climbing in. I can't say I approve of OSHA's methods!
Back at the funeral, Zoe comes over to talk to John while Cameron stands there robotically, and John asks if Henry's going to be OK. "Henry smokes a lot of weed," says Zoe. Is that a yes? I don't understand kids today! John says his father died before he was even born, and Zoe's all, "My father's a pile of ashes somewhere, so I guess we're both screwed," and then John's all, "I thought you picked out a grey suit to bury him in?" Nice work, Columbo. Zoe stares at him for a moment before saying, "Why am I even talking to you?" which I can't believe everybody doesn't say to John every episode, and she snaps that he doesn't know her or what she's going through. "Stop trying to make it seem like you're some kind of sensitivity expert. You don't know anything." I can't believe everybody doesn't say that to him every episode either.
Zoe stomps off to her family and friends. "She's not crying," Cameron says. "She's not doing a lot of things," says John. Zoe gets in a car, avoiding eye contact with John.
My GOD, when are we going to get to the fireworks factory here? Weaver's looking at her BlackBerry when Ellison strolls in, and the big suckup went home at lunchtime to go put a plaid tie on, and offers his sympathies for Lachlan's death. Much like Zoe, Weaver ain't exactly wearing out her mascara with the tears. Ellison starts talking about when his father died. "He was a tough man. We didn't get along." But it still took him a long time to come to terms with his death, so he threw himself into work so he wouldn't have to. Weaver asks if this was recent. "Recent enough," says Ellison. "Then you understand," says Weaver. Ellison asks how Savannah does with it, and Weaver is puzzled by the question, so Ellison has to explain that he means how she's handled her father's death. "Dr. Sherman was very helpful in that regard," she says, and Ellison points out that Dr. Sherman is no longer among the living either. Weaver says children are very "resilient," and then Ellison says he's surprised that Savannah isn't here for the anniversary, and Weaver says it's important to maintain routine, and it's not like there's an actual ceremony or anything, like I'm not sure if Ellison expects Weaver to bring her daughter and force her to look at a handful of plaid-wearing people. "Today's not the day for excitement," says Weaver. Ain't that the truth. Then she asks Ellison to excuse her: "I'm feeling emotional." Wow -- that is advanced emotion-mimicry technology. "I'm experiencing feelings. Please excuse me." Ellison strolls out of the office, Weaver watching him. She buzzes her secretary: "Find my daughter and bring her to me."
Over in Charmless Acres, Sarah gets bored waiting for Walsh to make a reappearance, so she heads over to the side of the house too and climbs in the window.
WAKE: Zoe and her mom stand next to the creepy picture of their dear departed father/husband, and somehow John managed to get himself invited to the wake with Cameron and Derek, and he's blathering on about how sometimes every single logical step they make leads them to "the most bizarre place," which is a bit much for someone fighting time-travelling morphing robots to save the world from a sentient machine that enslaves the human race. "What's the point?" asks John, and Derek says his mom thinks the factory is connected to Skynet. But you think she's nuts, says John. "Doesn't mean I think she's wrong," says Derek, around mouthfuls of shrimp skewer.
So Cameron looks over at Zoe and her mom standing next to the picture, and she notes that neither of them has looked at it since they've been there. Derek's all, "yeah, and...?" Cameron says, "If you had a picture of Kyle Reese, you'd look at it, wouldn't you?" I'm glad she made sure to say "Kyle Reese" because otherwise Derek wouldn't have had a clue who she meant. "He's not dead," says John, and Derek calls that a big leap. John asks Derek if he would or would not look at a picture of his brother. Derek looks over at the "grieving" mother and daughter. "He's not dead," he agrees. "We should find him before he is," says Cameron. Yeah, actually doing something might be more helpful than stuffing your face at a wake.
Like Sarah here, stalking through this empty house. There's no furniture in the house. There's also no sign of Walsh, but she notes that, curiously, the chain on the front door is on, which means that he didn't go out the front door, anyway. On the rug near a shelving units are curved tracks. Sarah checks the shelf, which sure enough pulls away from the wall, revealing a hidden doorway atop a set of descending stairs. She makes her way down, gun ready.
In a dim basement is a table with several computer monitors, with split screens displaying dozens of camera angles of security footage. She taps a couple of keys and finds it really easy to switch between angles. Then she spots a smear of fresh blood on the floor, and she heads out into the hall. We pan back over to the monitors and we can see, on one of them, John searching a bedroom.
He's rifling through drawers, looking furtively around, but gets caught by Zoe anyway who wants to know what he's doing in her parents' bedroom. So maybe a be
