She's limping, but, worse than that, the good part of her program, the Terminator override in her chips, has been stunned into silence by the exploding car. Which means, Cameron is just another Terminator now, bent on killing John Connor.
Which she almost does, in a gut punching first scene. When John and Sarah finally get the drop on her, after all kinds of other bruising sequences, Cameron pleads with John not to kill her - saying she knows John loves her and she loves John, and she's back to normal.
Was she lying? Well, not about being back to her good self. We see this when she doesn't kill John, and we see that her interior override of the bad Terminator program is back in play.
And the love? Well, whatever Derek Reese may say, I'm thinking Cameron may really be now feeling some love for John, as another result of her recent explosive experiences...
Meanwhile, it's good to see Lena Headey, Summer Glau and Thomas Dekker back in action. And Richard T. Jones as Agent Ellison, too.... I think there's a lot more to why Cromartie left him alive.
