Exclusive ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Deleted Scene Delves into a T-800’s Humanity

     January 13, 2020

Today, we’re pleased to debut a deleted scene from Terminator: Dark Fate. In the scene, Alicia (Alicia Borrachero) talks to Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) about going off to fight with “Carl”/T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger). Alicia confesses that she knows what the T-800 did to Sarah Connor but that he’s no longer the mindless killing machine he was. To Alicia, Carl is a person and someone she loves.

terminator-dark-fate-4k-box-artI really like this scene because it gets to the heart of one of the most interesting aspects of Dark Fate, which is whether or not a Terminator can develop a mind and soul. In previous movies, the Terminator is either a mindless killing machine or he is a savior, but Dark Fate posits that a Terminator can change and gain some semblance of humanity. I understand why the filmmakers cut the scene—you have to be ruthless in moving the action along—but I appreciate that they took the time to film it and it’s worth checking out.
