Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles 1.08 Vick’s Chip (2008, TV) – 6/10

Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, The 1.08 Vick’s Chip (2008)

Derek’s distrust of Cameron pays off when he discovers the terminator CPU she kept. They access its visual memory and note, with some surprise, that the terminator had been living undercover as a married man. But what was his mission?

6/10

Some deeply unconvincing computer tech spoils things this week and while the story has a logical coherence throughout, it feels like it doesn’t really make sense. Also while Sarah’s conclusion that Derek killed Andy Goode is, of course, correct, the episode provides no satisfactory explanation as to how she reaches that. We’ve already established that multiple terminators are running around with different missions and while the Vick terminator didn’t kill him, surely another one could have. On top of that, her statement that she’ll kill Derek if he lies to her again is just plain stupid. Though very American.

This Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, The episode contains violence, unpleasant scenes.
