Secrets from T:SCC Season 1

Posted in Agent Ellison, Cheri Weston, Demon Hand, Doctor Peter Silberman, Jordan, Morris, Pescadero, Season One, Spoilers, Wichita on September 15, 2008 by nerdchieftain

My Blu-ray of SCC treated me to an extended cut of the Demon Hand episode.

Sarah has a longer monologue on video tape from Pescadero.  Agent Ellison and the good Doctor Peter Silberman (retired from Pescadero) have an extended chat, which reveals why the good doctor belongs in Pescadero.

And there are two new High School scenes.

John enters Chemistry class to find a young man “bothering” his lab partner and confirmed loved interest, Cheri Weston.  The mysterious young man’s name?  Mr. Oxeford.  In the second scene, it is implied that this young man is behind the grafiti which lead to Jordan’s suicide, the Cheerleader.  In Cheri’s locker, it says, “Wichita.”  In the Cheerleder’s locker, whose lock John masterfully picks, it says, “Is he worth it?” with a picture of a basketball.  Both are written in spray paint by template. 

So, Wichita is where something crazy happened to Cheri if you believe Morris’ background story.  (Morris is the latino love interest for Cameron and John’s “new best friend.”)  Let’s not forget what happens when John asks Cheri she is from Wichita: she flips out a lil bit.

Most Memorable Moment in the Season Finale

I like how the Season Finale contained lots of character development and the characters make some kind of peace with each other.  Derek exposed Cameron’s deception about keeping the chip and I breathed a sigh of relief as ThisSalesman’s prediction that Cameron had a secret evil motive.  At least this time.

I nominate two moments in the season finale as having epic cinematic quality.

The first moment was when Derek took John to fulfill his ultimate desire for his birthday: meeting his father.  That snuck up on me.  I recognized Derek and Reese in the park early, but I didn’t see the, “Happy Birthday, John,” coming.  I have to say this human moment for Derek was important for me to consider him… well human and trustworthy.  Speaking of which, I don’t share John’s sentiment that he was telling the truth about not knowing whom his men were trailing.

The second moment was when Agent Ellison lead a team of FBI agents to arrest the Chromartie aka “Agent Kester” Terminator.  The shot from underwater of the Agents falling into the pool as the sounds of combat flared really lend a great sense of despair and hopelessness to the, well, hopeless situation.

Upon watching the season finale a second time on fox on demand, I realized how much potential there is in bringing Agent Ellison and Cloyd Dixon together after the disaster.  Ellison has more than just reasons to believe.  He will have retribution on his mind.  And… Cloyd can take him to Sarah Connor now that he is really ready to believe.
