    So wait, now you're saying Sun travelled forward through time to sleep with her tutor? Wait, now I get it! Pushing the button activated a magnetic field that prevented the Terminators from coming back, and when Desmond failed, it allowed one to crash the plane (since John Connor was one of the tailies), but that also caused Sun to leap back in time enough to be able to convince Jin that the baby was his! It all makes sense now! :D

    (I wonder if Kevin McKidd was on the plane too.)

    The fact that the show's producers came right out and said it is pretty incontrovertible evidence...

    Agreed. I can only hope that these threads don't deteriorate into "did T3 happen or not" every week. Looking forward to tonight...

    I wonder if we'll ever get an idea of the resources available to Skynet in the future. Can they continue to send more Terminators back in time at will? The premise of the first movie was that Skynet was all but destroyed, they had lost the war and were sending a Terminator back in time to kill the man (or mother of the man) who defeated them.

    With an alternate judgement day, it's possible they are not as bad off, but then why send back Terminators to change history if you are already winning? One possibility for the current batch of Terminators is that they know that the resistance has sent people back to wipe out Skynet and they are sending back their own protectors.

    I assumed that at least one resistance member that had been sent back in time worked at the bank and took care to clean up all the messy time-machine and terminator-body things so that no one found them and corrupted the timeline.

    As for the head, I really hope they address it somewhat with the next episode, because if it's not covered in living flesh it shouldn't have come through the portal - them's the rules.

    And my take on the T3 thing. The events happened, but now that Cameron and company have been sent back in time it alters the future (again) so now it won't happen. So it did, but it won't. Easy. Time travel makes small issues like that irrelevant (while making other small issues big issues). The 1997 cancer issue is a mistake by the writers :D

    If that's the case, why was it sitting in some scrap heap instead of smelted in order to assure its destruction. Again, it's a nitpick, but a bigger one than the head going through (IMO).

    Secret Service and FBI would have been all OVER that bank explosion/robbery/heist.

    *shrug*

    I think I gotta let it go and just watch the show and enjoy it ('cause I'm really liking it)

    Especially since it was destroyed by some sort of nuclear event.

    Ditto.

    Well shoot. I was thinking along the anagram lines. A pretty good one I found was "A Ghettos Union" which fits with the gang banger/fake ID part of the story.

    I think you are just over-analyzing the whole thing.

    For all intents and purposes, T3's events happened and now have been changed due to the crew jumping forward in time. If by some chance they go back again to the time they left, yes they can still happen the way they did in T3. But I do not see any forseeable reason why they would do this or even WANT to do this.

    Besides, Sarah now KNOWS she was going to get cancer and has/is taken steps to CHANGE that from happening the way it did. You can't undo those events.

    Rob :)

    People die from cancer every day. Even people who know they have cancer.

    Very true, but time travel allows events to happen out of order.

    Look---All I'm saying is that the fact that Sarah survived until 1999 does not preclude the possibility that she could still go back and die in 1997. Time travel allows for this possibility.

    I wasn't the one who suggested that they would, for whatever reason, jump back to 1997 - Amnesia did. I was just suggesting Amnesia was over-anaylzing.

    Right but she doesn't have cancer...yet. So technically she could possibly prevent it from ever happening - If it was natural occurring and she doesn't accidently catch some fallout unexpectedly.

    True again. But it would be ridiculous, show or plot-wise, for them to travel backwards in time again. If this happens for any reason - I'm done. :eek:

    In addition, Cameron seems to like to walk around the house without a lot of clothes on. And Sarah admonishes Cameron not to kiss her or "anyone else for that matter".

    Just got around to catching the first two episodes. Not bad, even if there was anything else new to watch...
