Terminator Dark Fate Ending & New Timeline Explained

Terminator: Dark Fate takes the Terminator franchise back to basics, resetting the timeline back to the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Yippee-ki-yay, movie lovers, watch the video below for a full analysis of the ending to Terminator: Dark Fate, the new timeline and what it really means for the future of the franchise, the intriguing way Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Carl connects to the T-800 from Terminator 2, and predictions on how the new Skynet, Legion, will be defeated in possible sequels.

More than two decades have passed since Sarah Connor prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator – a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) – travels back through time to hunt and kill her. Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.

Terminator: Dark Fate is in cinemas now.
