Terminator: Dark Fate -- Shouldn't Everyone Know What The T-800 Looks Like?
Even after terminating every post-T2 sequel, Terminator: Dark Fate somehow found a way to make a confusing franchise even more confusing. Skynet is now "Legion," the timeline is totally different, and John Connor gets shot in the face like five minutes after the last movie ended. Most baffling is "Carl," the T-800 who bumped off John and decades later now runs ... a drapery business? Oh, and he has a wife, because Terminators have working robo-dicks now.
Paramount PicturesOh, and a dog, despite dogs hating terminators having been extremely fucking established.
What They Forgot About:
There's only one problem with all this. OK, there are many, many problems, but specifically, it ignores a key plot thread from T2. After the T-800 saves John from the T-1000 in a shopping mall shootout, the police understandably take notice. They also make the connection that this hulking sunglasses-clad Austrian is the same dude who laid waste to a police station back in 1984. We even see the cops questioning Sarah Connor about him.
TriStar PicturesIt feels like this should've come up when he bought a small army's worth of guns.
