I Know Now Why You Celebrate Birthdays

Inside the café, there's no sign of Sarkissian, and Cameron and Sarah are looking around. Their computer beeps. Up pops a message: "I understand you're interested in buying the Turk." They look around. Is it the Asian guy? Is it the shady guy on a cellphone? Sarah types: "Yes." The response: "$500,000. Valley Square Mall Food Court. Tomorrow. Next to the ATM." She starts to respond, but the messenger program shuts down and prints in giant letters USER HAS LOGGED OFF. Because that's what usually happens with messenger programs when someone you're talking to logs off. "Nice doing business with you," says a frustrated Sarah. Just how easy did she think this was going to be? It's not like buying something out of the classifieds.

Hey, Charley Dixon's back! He's putting some food in the refrigerator when the doorbell rings. It's Agent Ellison. "Mr. Dixon! What's it been, eight years?" The closed captioning says: "It's been a long time since we spoke." I wonder if either of them will congratulate the other on not aging a day in those eight years.

Sitting down with some tea or coffee -- good to see Ellison getting back on the horse again -- Ellison notes a crucifix on one of the walls. "I see you're a man of faith, as am I all of a sudden," he says. Charley demurs, saying his wife is a Catholic. Ellison asks if Charley knows the story of the rapture, and Charley repeats himself about how it's his wife who's the Catholic, and I'd like to point out to Charley that that doesn't preclude him from knowing anything about Catholicism, especially since it's important to his wife. So Ellison quotes: "'And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder. And I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, "Come and see." And I looked. And behold, a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death. And Hell followed with him.' The Book of Revelation." Yay! Ellison got it right!

Charley's looking at Ellison like he's got three heads, and Ellison says he's seen things with his own eyes. He looks at Charley. "I've beheld. And on my beholding, I've come to the conclusion, while new to me, might be old to you." Charley's all, you could maybe come around to the point any time soon. Ellison says he thinks Sarah Connor's alive, and Charley knows where she is. "You're crazy," says Charley, and Ellison chuckles. "If Sarah is alive, and I believe she is, we are working in a realm where much, perhaps anything, is possible: robots, soldiers from the future, Skynet." Charley's got a terrible poker face. He says if Sarah were alive, she'd probably be glad to hear him say that. Ellison urges Charley to say what he knows, and Charley says he'll tell Ellison what he told the other guy: he doesn't know anything. Ellison's all, 'other guy'? And Charley says, Yeah, Agent...Kester. Ellison repeats it.
