Okay, now I've seen the S2 finale of Terminator: SCC, and it was awesome. It solved some of my lingering puzzles (confirming some of miss_mandy's theories, in fact), revealed fascinating truths, and ended with what could either be a completion point (if it's cancelled) or open up a new arc of possibilities if we get a third season.

It also laid the foundation for things that have happened in the last two seasons (supported its own canon). SO awesome, as finales go.

Please, Fox-- this show has great writing, a great cast, and (you'll rarely hear me say this) great original music (powerful, evocative, moody, and mournful in turns).

Don't shelve a great product. I want to see where this all goes!

So that suggests to me, when he went back into the past, he wouldn't recognize him as Kyle's son.

Perhaps he'd like to think he recognized John right off when he in fact didn't (rewriting his own history-- my Dad now claims he has memories from age 2, so I'm all too familiar with this idea). OR... it was a platitude to reassure the emoBoy that was S1 John Connor. ;)

Er, but nobody told him that John was Kyle's son. He told John that he had figured it out.

Hmmm, you probably were paying far more attention in S1 than I was. I tended to tune out scenes with emoBoy for quite awhile because they bored me, so I've probably missed some details. Good thing I'm not writing fic in that fandom. ;)

I actually just rewatched it recently. But ANYWAY, aside from whatever mess I believe they've painted themselves into, I would very much like them to bring this darn show back.
