Then, one day, Hal came in and told Sarah that she didn't need him anymore: "Said that I'd found someone I could depend on. Someone I could trust. Someone who'd never, ever let me down." This sounds like the theme song for an '80s sitcom. Psst, Charley: this story's got a point, and you're it! "I got nothin' left to give you," he says. Sarah says it's not for her, but for John. "He seems like he's pretty full up with people taking care of him," says Charley Sarah says she doesn't trust any of them. "Yeah, well, he's still got you, right?" says Charley. Sarah's all, "Yeah, about that..." and she takes Charley's hand and plays with his ring for a couple of moments, and then places his hand on her breast. I'm pretty sure Charley's thinking, "Man, this takes me back," and then, "But I don't remember this lump being there... ohhhhhh." "How long?" he asks her after a long silence. She says she doesn't know, she just found it a few days ago. "Are you sure it's..." he says, and she is. Why? Because the time-travelling killer robot from the future told her that when they jumped eight years in time they jumped over her death in 2005 of cancer... makes sense! Charley's confused, naturally, somehow not getting that it's possible she was just going to get cancer anyway, only now she's going to die in 2013 instead. Sarah herself worries that with everything she's done, she's "sped up the date." That would be all the smoking, and suntanning, and working at nuclear power plants. She says it's her fate: "There's nothing I can do." Charley hugs her.
Over at Zeira Corp, Murch says he wishes he could say that he's patched every hole, but there's no such thing as perfect security, and Weaver asks the ass-coverer if it's sufficient. "The damn thing is tricky. Can't know for sure, not really." The only way to know for sure is to ask John Henry himself, so Weaver orders Murch to activate John Henry's AI, but not to connect him to an outside network. Murch is hesitant, because no one's done this sort of thing with an AI this advanced before, but Weaver says no one's created an AI this advanced before.
