"John's not stupid," is her only explanation. "I don't like the way he responds to you," says Sarah, displaying again a remarkable ignorance of the teenage male. "You got what you wanted," says Cameron, and walks off.
And now, back to the safe. Sarah's got her arm all the way down the hole in the floor up to her shoulder, and her concentration is enough for her to be surprised by someone picking her up and tossing her against the room. It's Chrome Artie, who grabs her by the ankle and drags her over to the staircase where he picks her up with one hand and carries her.
Upstairs, he throws her against the floor and then walks into John's room, presumably, although the primary colours on the bed and the sky-blue walls and ceiling (complete with clouds) aren't exactly the decor I was expecting from cranky pants John. Chrome Artie hauls Sarah into the room and points a gun at her head. "Where is he?" he asks. "Check under the bed," says Sarah, like maybe she's hoping Chrome Artie will get distracted by John's Penthouse stash. "You don't know," says Chrome Artie, as he clutches her throat until she blacks out.
We're onto Cameron's story, now, as she stares at Riley and John saying goodnight to each other. We revisit her conversation with Sarah outside the house, and then we watch Cameron sashay down the hall to John's room. Outside his door, she takes off her leather jacket and drops it on the floor before entering his room in shorts and tank top. "You busy?" she asks John, who, staring at her, takes a moment to say no. "Did you change?" he asks. She says it's hot out. "Since when do you feel heat?" he asks, and she simply says, "I feel heat," as she folds her mile-long legs in half in order to lie down on the bed beside him.
John asks if her plan is for Riley to see them in bed together and be scarred for the rest of her life, and since all they're doing is just LYING THERE, I think he's getting ahead of himself somewhat, and Cameron says she waited until Riley was gone. "And then you and Mom high-fived," says John, whose cranky attitude towards everyone really wore out its welcome in, oh, let's say T2.
"You bring danger into Riley's life," says Cameron. "I know that. I'm not stupid," says John. Yeah, well, does Riley know the danger? No? Then you're selfish too. "But sometimes you do stupid things," says Cameron, and I think by "sometimes" she means "EVERY SINGLE TIME." His explanation is for her not to worry about it because "sometimes humans do stupid things," and maybe the counter-argument should be that John's stupid things could result in, you know, the ERADICATION OF ALL HUMANITY. Cameron says she understands more than he thinks. For John, it's just an excuse to keep seeing Riley, even if everyone thinks it's a bad idea. "I understand it's a bad idea ... and I understand that being John Connor can be lonely."
