Well, now that an alarm's going off, they might not get the chance. A couple of security guards show up to waddle after Derek and Sarah, who go back the way they came, taking a ladder back up the elevator shaft. The guards aren't really doing anything but yelling "stop!" half-heartedly, but Derek and Sarah can't seem to flee at a pace faster than "trot." Maybe this "chase" was supposed to have been sped up in post-production. Making their way through the tunnels again, Sarah ducks out to the side while Derek continues to lead the guards through the maze of tunnels, cornering him in a dead end. They order him onto the ground and are about to handcuff him, when Sarah comes in from behind, and disarms and knocks out first one guard, and then the other (the second having naturally stood there and watched while his partner got his ass kicked). Derek grabs a guard's gun and is about to shoot them before Sarah intervenes. Derek is all wild-eyed and panting. Dude needs to get back in shape.
More brief images from the chip of Barbara working on his project, with Vick rubbing her neck. Then it fuzzes out again. Frustrated, John says he gets to a certain point and then the machine kicks him out. "It's like a part of Vick's memory just turns off. I've even cranked up the juice" -- he does so again, and things shut down -- "and there goes the power supply."
Suddenly, his phone starts ringing with the sound of an old-school dial-up modem. "That's weird. My phone is dialing for an internet connection." Suddenly, his screen blinks on with the red Terminator POV: John himself, sitting there staring at the computer. TARGET ACQUIRED -- JOHN CONNOR, blinks the monitor. Is that supposed to happen? "Vick's reactivating," says Cameron, and she and John go to town pulling out the chip, yanking out wires. On screen, it looks like the chip's trying to get online. "Did it happen? Did he get out? Did he call someone or something?" "No," says Cameron. Well, we all know we can trust Cameron. "We should be very careful with Vick's chip," says Cameron, who, since she was supposed to destroy the thing in the first place, probably should keep quiet.
In come Derek and Sarah, whose operation went equally shitty. Derek AGAIN proposes blowing shit up. Sarah asks if he's going to take an axe to every traffic light in town. "No. We only need to take down one," says a very pensive John.
