Anyway, Ellison says he was coming down to pop John out of jail no questions asked, which Sarah doesn't believe, until Ellison says he felt he owed Sarah one for saving his life back at Silberman's cabin. Sarah shrugs it off, saying it wasn't much. "It was my life," says Ellison. "How do you feel about that now?" she asks him. He doesn't have much of an answer.
Nearby are John and Riley, still on the worst first vacation ever. John tells Riley that she has to go, but he'll call her when he gets back to L.A., and instead of saying, "Yeah, don't worry about it," she pulls a whole "stand by my man" thing. Of course, that's partly because there's a guy out there killing people. "He won't follow you if you run away from me," says John. Yeah. Because Terminators NEVER try to use friends and family to get to their targets, hey, John? Moron. "I don't want to run away from you," says Riley, so I think someone should check to see that she isn't actually technically brain-dead. "Get her out of here," says Sarah, who then goes over to Ellison to ask for his phone. "You have a plan?" he asks. "And a weapon," she says, and he surmises she's talking about Cameron.
Sarah calls Derek, puts in the code, and says she needs him and Cameron, because she and John are in trouble. Derek says they're there already, at the jail.
So it's over to Derek's story now, which ... starts with Cameron and Derek arriving outside the police station with wounded people hobbling about. "Chrome Artie's here," says Cameron. "Then we should stay undercover," says Derek. He says this while skulking around his jeep with his gun drawn, so I guess his cover is "undercover cop whose cover is blown." Cameron just strolls right up to the police station, and Derek follows. Inside, they survey the dead and dying. "I'm looking for John Baum," says Cameron to the captain, who's lying on the floor, bullet wound in the chest. "Yo no sè," he says. Derek wants to get out of there, but Cameron's intent on finding John. "We're no good to him dead," says Derek. "I can't let anything happen to him," says Cameron, heading deeper into the station. Hey, it's the worst prison guard ever. "Escaped or dead?" asks Derek. "Escaped," says the guard, who then asks Derek for a little help, and Derek's idea of a little help is to tell him, "He won't be back."
