How would a Terminator raise a little girl? It’s an intriguing question, and something that would have been truly fantastic to see explored in the latest entry of our favorite film franchise, “Terminator Genisys”. While the T-800 Guardian “Pops” parental methods were hardly touched upon in the film itself, an older draft of the movie’s script has given us a little more insight on how the Terminator managed to raise a young Sarah Connor.
Out of all the questions left unanswered in the 2015 film “Terminator Genisys”, none are maybe more intriguing than who or what reprogrammed the T-800 Model 101 infiltrator “Pops” and sent him through the time displacment device back to 1973 to protect a young Sarah Connor from a T-1000 assassin. While writers Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have confirmed multiple times they already know the answer and hope to reveal it in a future sequel, they have been reluctant to give Terminator fans any clue to who this person (or thing’s) identity is in the interim.
