Did you watch the show? It was pretty explicitly shown how they ended up at the school.
The episode was okay. I hate that Sarah was neutered by babysitting some kid all episode, but it was nice to see John stand up for himself and show some promise as the future leader he would be.
I totally dig Derek's flashbacks. Every time they show them, I think why couldn't the show be about that. Of course, there's always the upcoming movies. I thought they were setting up Burrell as the guy who had his guts exploded, but it was pretty obvious he would die protecting John.
These terminators are a more advanced model than Arnold in the movies right? They are T-888's and Arnold was a T-800. Then why are they so much dumber? At least in the movies, the Sarah Connor's that were killed happened to be around the same age as the target Sarah. But in the show, the terminator kills an adult Burell (in his 40's) and goes after a kid Burell (age 10?). I mean, I'm happy the terminator actually wants to kill something this ep, but given that it recognized the target Burell at the school, it shouldn't have even gone after the other Burell's once it saw that they weren't the target. And then to top it off, it goes after the target Burell sans weapons. How exactly was it planning to kill Burrell? Sit on him until he cries "uncle"?
Also, I don't get why Manson's character needs Agent Ellis to acquire information. She's a goddamn robot. Plug into something and get the info. Or better yet, kill someone to get the info. What does she do all day in that stupid office?
