Um, yeah. So this happened.

That’s Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese on the left, and John Connor apparently meeting The Doctor on the right. Oh, and there’s more:

Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator–an older T-800 she calls “Pops”–who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.

“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”

I guess it’d be dull to do the exact same plot again. But if she’s been raised by a Terminator, does that mean she has the Arnold accent too? Because that would make this amazing, in the absolute wrong way. And I’d probably watch it 50 times for the lolz.
