Season 2 has been very uneven. Terminator is about being hunted down, on the run, fearing for you life. They got off track. The subplots like Jesse/Riley; Sarah's 3 dots looniness; and John Henry baby terminator took the show off the rail. They tried to bring it back on track these last few episodes, but I think it's too late. Fox told the writers to wrap up the stories.
The end was a spectacular cliffhanger! If you're gonna get cancelled. Go out with a blast. Sending John to the future is a suitable ending. Sarah was holding him back. She had to die or leave. Derek, Cameron, Charlie all got killed sort of. I liked the ending and if this is the curtain call. Then I'm OK with it.
If it is renewed for season 3, then this is a great jumping off point. It should be called the John Connor Chronicles. Humanity is in shambles. John is here to lead. Derek, Cameron/Alison, and Kyle return playing a slightly different version of themselves. How cool is that for an actor.
Dramatically this would be great. John would know the past/futures lives of his friends. He'd have to prove himself though. Knowing he'd send some to their deaths. Would Weaver be his new companion in the future. Is Sarah dead? They could bring her back as an old lady who survived judgement day. Imagine that family reunion.
The writers should break away from the movies. They should chart their own path and ignore continuity and time paradoxes. Just tell great stories like this last episode.

Like Heroes this season of SCC would pile up in DVR until I had absolutely nothing else to watch or do. I'd normally leave it on as background while cleaning and such. That's how I know I could care less.

Don't be too sure. The "Hunter Killer" that smashed into her office building just in time for her to save everyone sort of disappeared and then you see a little bit of molten metal slide in and re-join her. I think there's more going on here and she's certainly evil.
From what I could tell, John just jumped into the future and negated himself from the events that led him to become the great leader he was destined to be. That's even better than terminating him before he was born.

The finale was OK. Felt a bit rushed, which would make sense if they have indeed been canceled.
Curious to see what the next season holds, if there is one.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?

We've never really understood from the previous films that this series is based on (T1 and T2) how or why John is such a great leader. Why couldn't it be that he was sent to the future with knowledge about Skynet obtained in the past. He knows some of Skynets moves that the resistance does not yet know about. I could see were this intel could be useful enough to put him into a high position.

The last couple of episodes have been fantastic. I thought it took them a while in the first season to find their footing but the plot line came together in the 2nd. I think it was planned and paced extremely well. Lots of twists and surprises! I'm STILL a little shocked how they killed John's uncle. No cheesy slow mo, no blaze of glory, just one unceremonious shot to the head. Amazing! I would love for them to continue the show but I am really happy how they did the season finale.

Pretty crazy ending. There are a lot of unanswered questions if we end up getting a 3rd season that they can delve into. I'm hoping for a 3rd season but it doesn't look good.
