SPOILER ALERT! Last night’s season finale of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles left more than a few plot points hanging tantalizingly over cliffs. Will mother and son ever see each other again now that John Connor (Thomas Dekker) has been time-warped into the post-apocalyptic future leaving Sarah Connor (Lena Headey) stuck in 2009? Is Catherine Weaver (Shirley Manson) actually a good cyborg after all? Why else would she morph into a liquid metal blast shield to save Sarah and John from that flying drone that came from…where? And what about Cameron (Summer Glau)? Did she really suspect a radiation leak in her chest or did she just want John Connor to feel her up?
Of course, the biggest question left unanswered last night is whether “Born to Run” was simply the end of the second season or the final curtain on the whole series. As they say in the Terminatorville, the future is not set, with Fox still undecided about bringing the show back for third run. We don’t know about you, but last night’s episode sure made us want to see more. When John time-jumps to the post-Judgment Day universe only to find Kyle and Derek in the smoking ruins, with Cameron there, too…well, we only hope that Terminator: Salvation will be as nifty a mind trip when it arrives on big screens next month (judging by the trailer that aired in the middle of last night’s episode, that looks like a distinct possibility). But what do you think, PopWatchers? Are you ready for a third season of TSCC?
