The soldiers stumble their way back to the hideout. It's sunny out, but that really just means it's easier to see the skulls scattered across the landscape. Arriving at the entrance to the hideout, they're dismayed to see the trap doors flung wide, smoke billowing from the opening. Don't panic just yet; maybe one of the soldiers made microwave popcorn and cooked it for too long, and they're just airing all the chemical butter stink out of the place.
Back in the present, Charley asks if this "Kyle" is from the future too. Sarah is still wearing her disgusting blood-soaked shirt. "...and he's John's father," figures Charley. Sarah admits it. The only thing about their history that wasn't made up was that John's father is dead. "It was because of all this," says Charley. Yep, says Sarah. "We never had a chance," says Charley. No, but let's talk about it AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, Charley. That's what we want to see.
Back to the future: Derek and the other soldiers grimly make their way through the carnage of the underground bunker. Blood-spattered walls. Even the lion mural has taken a hit. "Plasma burns. Secondary explosions. Skynet was here," says Andy, as though anybody needs to be told that. "Maybe Connor and the others fell back, to the bunker downtown," suggests one of the other soldiers. Derek finds Kyle's foot-locker amidst the rubble, and opens it. It's empty, save for the good-luck photograph of Sarah, or what's left of it; it's been burned. He slams the locker closed. "Please, God, please," he says. Andy moves to comfort Derek, like maybe Andy could keep his SKYNET-CREATING HANDS TO HIMSELF.
The sound of movement startles them, and they take cover, but it's more resistance soldiers, led by none other than the amazing Andre Royo, also known as Bubbles from The Wire. This new character of his seems to be a lot more hale and healthy. He definitely has better teeth. Derek knows him -- his name is Sumner -- and they greet each other. Sumner says four T-888s took out the bunker four nights ago, but John and Kyle weren't there when it happened but at a Terminator complex in Topanga Canyon and "decided to put all the firepower we had into it. We lost a lot of men." Sumner doesn't know what it was, just a research lab or factory or something. Connor took a small group, including Kyle, deep into the place, and left everyone else outside to guard. "A couple days later, he came out. Ordered us to blow the place to hell." What about Kyle, Derek asks. "No one ever saw your brother again," says Sumner, after hesitating. "Take me to Connor now," says Derek.
