Elsewhere, John has found what he's looking for: the Valley Square Mall. He wanders into a computer store, then types "John Connor" into a search engine ("LeSearch.com"). Naturally, the first item returned from that search on a totally unique name is a news story from eight years ago about bank robbers dying during a heist, featuring a photo of Cameron, Sarah, and John from the bank job. John looks around shiftily. He should have looked around a little more, because he hasn't noticed that his computer is the one providing the huge display on the wall-sized screen behind him. He reads some more news, about James Ellison, and also about Charley Dixon in a story with the headline "City honors heroic EMTs." One of the sales girls strolls up and asks who "Charley Dixon" is, then tells him he shouldn't search on the store demo model, because then everybody gets in his business. People should mind their own business regardless, is what I think. Flustered, John declines her invitation to check out what's on special, and leaves the store.
Elsewhere, the roadside trash collector comes home to his cluttered place, pulls the Terminator skull from his satchel, and sets it on the table, where a black cat hisses at it after its red eyes open. Yeah, that cat's probably going to piss on it a little later. Over at a junkyard, a robotic arm claws its way out through some scrap on top of it. The yard worker investigates (with his guard dog going nuts). For his diligence, he winds up losing a great deal of blood in a fan on the wall behind him.
Sarah and Cameron show up at Carlos's house, where they are greeted by a big burly shirtless tattooed guy and a woman who barely acknowledges their existence. Let's assume Enrique phoned ahead and let Carlos know that the women were on their way, because I'd hate to think all you have to do to get in is to say Carlos's name and that Enrique sent you. Anyway, they're in. Several pit bulls inside, restrained by their owners, go crazy when Cameron comes in (because dogs can sniff out Terminators). Sarah sends Cameron outside. "Something about your friend I should know?" asks Carlos. "Cat person," is Sarah's explanation, and the two settle down to business.
Outside, the female sentry silently gets in Cameron's face as Cameron waits by the car. Chiquita then leans against the hood of the car, and, after observing her, Cameron leans back in exactly the same fashion. You'd think that'd earn her a beatdown (not that Cameron would have to worry about that). Chiquita looks her over again, and Cameron stares her down, and the two of them chill.
