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.

By now you’ve seen “Charley Dixon” aka Sarah’s former boyfriend/Medic, on several episodes of SCC.

If you are like me, you see that guy and ask yourself “Where do I know him from?”

So after some personal confirmation that indeed that was him in that one show. Here is a list of where you might have caught Dean Winters on the Tube.

Dean was Tommy Gavin’s cop brother Johnny Gavin on USA Network’s “Rescue Me” – great stuff

Dean was also Detective Brian Cassidy on NBC’s “Law and Order SVU

He also found fame on HBO’s “OZ” as Ryan O’Reil.

Dean Winters has some serious acting chops and I’ve found him solid in everything I’ve seen him in.

Take a look over here at IMDB to see his other gigs.
