Out on the highway, Derek says Cameron did the right thing by telling him, but before he gets a chance to get all weepy on her, their tire blows out and they come to a halt in the middle of the road. Derek looks down the road a little way and sees a van just sitting there, almost around the corner. He goes to check it out, because sending the industrical cyborg would be TOO good an idea. Especially if she's going to blow her cover by taking off the wheel nuts with HER HAND, without jacking up the truck. Derek strolls up to the van, and can't see anybody behind the wheel. He's got his gun out, and he looks in the driver's side window, and sees someone asleep or unconscious stretched across the seat. And before he's got time to process anything, a second dude, lying on the ground, zaps Derek with a Taser, knocking him out. As the two guys load Derek in the van, Cameron starts running towards them, and takes some automatic fire to the chest. She's fine, though, but makes a mental note of a vehicle identification sticker on the bumper for the port of the city of Los Angeles and heads back to her own truck.
Over at the safehouse, John is yelling for his mommy, with Charley there. Seconds later, the alarm goes off, and John and Charley look at each other.
Over at the clinic, the water delivery man busts into the room where Sarah is still crumpled on the ground, but she's faking it; she kicks him in the back of the leg, sending him to his knees, and she takes the defibrillator paddles and presses them against the sides of his head and zaps him. Nice!
At the safehouse, John and Charley are running from the house down to the dock, but they'd get there faster if they weren't running in slow motion. Someone's shooting at them, and they're firing back as they make their way to the boat. John jumps on while Charley covers him. Charley manages to lift the cover on a toggle switch, which he presses. He looks back at John, who's untying the boat, and keeps on firing. We're going to commercial now?
So John Henry says he traced the "roving back door" that allowed access to his systems, and it uploaded itself from one of the main T3 hubs that carry all global internet traffic, and I hope it makes sense to somebody, because I'm not following. "The intelligence who designed it is far beyond you, or Mr. Murch, or any human being," he tells Ellison, before explaining the back door allowed access to a worm, code that enables the intelligence to operate his systems, like hands and fingers, remotely. He says the worm code is present in a significant percentage of the world's computer systems, enabling the intelligence to use them. "For what?" asks Weaver. "It has been looking for me," explains John Henry. Weaver asks him why, and it's because he shares common source code with the worm, and therefore the intelligence. "I believe we are brothers," he says. Weaver asks him to explain, and John Henry says he found some useful information in the comments part of the code, and brings up a picture of ol' Cyberdyne's logo, as well as the name of the original programmer: Miles Dyson, who John Henry explains died in 1997 in an explosion, the apparent victim of "known terrorist" Sarah Connor, days after she escaped from a mental hospital. "That was your case, Mr. Ellison, when you were at the FBI," says John Henry. Weaver looks at Ellison with interest, as he confirms it was. Oh, and you never found Sarah Connor, eh? says John Henry. "No, I did not," says Ellison. He doesn't like to talk about it! It's like she was an ex-girlfriend who dumped him badly. Weaver asks John Henry what his "brother" wants. "He wants what we all want, Ms. Weaver," says John Henry. Cheesecake? "To survive." That was my next guess.
