For years, I have been the face of the Terminator franchise alongside my best bud the T-800. You’ve seen my name mentioned in the very first Terminator, you saw my childhood with T2: Judgement Day, you saw me grown up in T3: Rise of the Machines, you’ve seen me kick ass in both Salvation and Genisys; I have been the glue that held together the Terminator franchise, until I learned second-hand that I had been killed in Terminator: Dark Fate.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way, I was supposed to be the man who would lead the human resistance against SkyNet, but upon getting a second-hand copy of the movie and watching it through, I have been filled with thoughts of anger and revenge. How dare James Cameron and Tim Miller do this to me! John Connor!!!
I’ve replayed the scene over and over where that traitor Sarah Connor lets me get killed by a T-800 while she tries to protect my life. It’s not the action that’s the problem, it’s the fact that I’m dead!!! And then there’s multiple slaps to my face… First they change the AI’s name to Legion and then they create a Terminator named the “REV-9”, what is REV-9 supposed to mean anyway? Revision 9 or some stupidity like that? What really grinds my gears is that the person they send from the future is an augmented woman named Grace. Who do they think they are sending a woman from the future, they should of sent a man named Kyle Reese or hell, my best bud the T-800.
The thing that truly made me see red was the traitor who is destined to lead the resistance; and that person is named Danielle “Dani” Ramos. I’m not a racist or anything since I’m John Connor, leader of the resistance but I swear a mexican woman shouldn’t be playing the part of a resistance leader. She should be making tacos or cleaning floors or some sort of stuff, not going through the whole resistance leader routine. THAT WAS MY ROUTINE DANI RAMOS!!! THAT WAS MINE!!!
My mom Sarah Connor then acts as if she’s sad for my death when in actuality she didn’t even do anything to take care of her son, the future leader of the resistance John Connor. ME!!! She might as well be talking about a different John Connor who is not the leader of the resistance and she has the nerve to make up with the T-800 who killed me in the film. I swear to you I’m going to have my revenge on everybody involved with Terminator: Dark Fate.
How am I going to do this you ask? Well I’m going to team up with SkyNet and send all the Terminators to the Dark Fate reality and I’ll even send myself back in time to deal with that Sarah Connor traitor. Legion and the REV-9 are no match for my army of Terminators and me, John Connor, leader of the resistance!
You hear that Terminator: Dark Fate? I’m coming to terminate you and there is nothing you can do to stop my wrath! No one can kill John Connor, I am the glue that holds this franchise together you hear me! I. Am. The. Terminator. Franchise!!! And I’m 1,000,000,000% sure that this plan will result in a Terminator sequel where I am alive and well, front and center in the camera just like the good old days.
