Cameron opens her eyes and sits up. She looks at John, pointing the gun at her. "Are you here to kill me, John?" she asks. He says no. Which is lucky for her, because that gun would totally stop her, right? He asks if she's going to kill him. "No," she says. He gives her the gun and says, "Promise." We watch her analysis overlay as TERMINATE flashes red on her screen as she looks at him, followed by "Termination Override" in white. She gives him back the gun. "Promise," she says. Yeah, for NOW, you idiot. He tosses the gun back to his mom and then uses the flare to ignite the thermite anyway, totally wasting it.
It's dark. Ellison pointlessly stares at the former Connor Compound, when Chrome Artie strolls up. "I'll never lead you to her," says Ellison, adding that if that's why Chrome Artie left him alive, he might as well just kill him right now. "I'll never do the devil's work," he adds. "We'll see," says Chrome Artie, creepily, and he strolls off.
Shirley Manson strolls up to the assembled department head meeting to announce the creation of a new department that will cross disciplines and require hard work from each of their groups. One department head -- the vacation-missing Justin Tuck -- gripes about how he doesn't have a man to spare in the AI division, meaning either artificial intelligence or (and I cheerfully admit that this is implausible) American Idol. "Your department will be hard-hit," says Manson amiably, adding that the new project will be called Babylon. Wow, a surprise Bible reference. Tuck wants to know what Babylon will do, besides steal team members. "It'll change the world," says Manson. Seems to me that this meeting could have been handled with a group e-mail, but I guess that's why I'm not the head of some vague high-tech operation.
Back at the church, Derek has managed to sneak in and out of the former Connor Compound without being noticed by the FBI or the Terminator, for some supplies that'll mean they don't have to start completely from scratch. "Wouldn't be the first time," says Sarah, like THANKS FOR RISKING YOUR LIFE AND ALL. Derek tells her she's made too many sandwiches, because Charley took off: "Guess he really does have a wife."
Sarah strolls into the nave to see Cameron staring at the massive crucifix. "Do you believe in the Resurrection?" she asks Sarah. "Would you if you'd seen what I've seen?" asks Sarah. Cameron says faith isn't part of her programming. "I'm not sure it's part of mine, either," says Sarah.
