Friday night’s SHOCKER made it to the newspaper (spoiler)

…Wow.

Who ever would have thought I would be this startled — not just startled, but sad — about the death of a character played by Brian Austin Green? Or that a network TV show in this day and age would have the onions to bump off a significant regular character 15 minutes into an episode, with no time for heroics or big speeches or any of the other blaze-of-glory elements we expect from deaths on series television?

Instead, Derek — who, thanks to Green and the writers, had quickly become the series’ most compelling human character — just comes around the wrong corner at the wrong time, takes a bullet between the eyes from the latest T-888 model, and that’s all she wrote. There’s some poetry to him winding up in an unmarked grave just like his brother Kyle — and you could argue that the opening scene in the cemetery was Derek’s real, hidden farewell scene — but disappointed as I am that Derek won’t be around anymore(*), it felt real and appropriate to the franchise to have a main character killed so easily by a Terminator. Frankly, it’s amazing that John and his mom have survived as long as they have, with or without a reformed Terminator as a protector.

(*) For one episode, anyway, as it’s fair to say odds of renewal are on the long side right now.

Really, the entire sequence at the Weaver house was gangbusters, from a concerned John Henry guiding Savannah away from the water delivery man (and calmly explaining that she wouldn’t be going to the foyer to see her nanny) to John popping up in the garage to Cameron rolling the bad guy down a very long, steep hill to give them enough time to get away…..
