Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

General Brewster (David Andrews) understands what John Connor (Nick Stahl) and Kate Brewster (Claire Danes) don’t: once Skynet has been unleashed into cyberspace, Judgement Day cannot be stopped, it can only be survived. Before he dies, Brewster gives the couple directions and access codes to the Crystal Peak installation, leading them to believe that by going there, they will be able to deactivate the Skynet ‘core.’ The T-X (Kristen Lokken) chases John and Kate, and the T-101 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) chases her. The T-101 performs one last heroic act, and uses his Hydrogen fuel cell to destroy both himself and the T-X . When John and Kate get into the facility, they discover a room full of 30-year-old computers(*) and the truth of their situation. Crystal Peak is actually a fallout-proof bunker intended to shelter government officials and military brass in the event of thermonuclear war, and Brewster sent them there to do the only thing possible: to live. As Civil Defense officers from surviving communities begin to call, asking who’s in charge, John steps up to the destiny he never truly believed in, and answers “I am.”
