Question Chance to kill

there were a few moments when the terminator could've easily killed sarah connor. one of them was when his car crashed into the wall in the parking lot. the cops were holding sarah and reese, and he ran away. if he simply got out of the car and killed sarah, the cops would have no chance to stop him. i guess he was too confident that he would get her l8er

Re: Chance to kill

Um, no. He's a machine. He has no confidence; he was programmed to just kill her. He was meant to terminate her immediately, then leave. The reason why he didn't kill her then was because we would have no movie.

Re: Chance to kill

yes, thank you, but i meant it would be realistic to kill her then. obviously there would be no movie if he did. and i couldnt find another way to say that he (or it ) thought he would be able to kill her later.

Re: Chance to kill

Remember, the Terminator has a busted eye. Maybe it reasoned that its probability for success would be severely deminished until the eye was fixed.

Re: Chance to kill

Not to mention that there were an awful lot of cops there at the time. Granted I'm sure the Terminator could well have taken them all on, but it would increase the chances of Sarah getting away in the ensuing fight whilst offering itself up to more unnecessary damage. Plus, with Sarah taken by the police, it gives the Terminator a known quantity to deal with, he knows exactly where she'll be later on.
