Didja Notice?

 

The guns being wielded by the Terminators during the mountain attack may be Westinghouse M95A1 Phased Plasma Rifles, though they look slightly different from the ones seen in the movies and the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

 

After being rescued from the Terminator attack by the rogue Resistance group Yankee Company, Kyle asks where they are heading, commenting that Pomona's the closest base. We see the Pomona base in "2029" Part 3. Pomona is a city about 25 miles east of the survivors' previous colony in Pasadena.

 

On page 16, Red claims Yankee Company's impending attack against a new Skynet base will be a turkey shoot and Kyle sarcastically remarks, "General Lee would be proud." He is presumably referring to General Robert E. Lee the commander of the Confederate Army, who unconditionally surrendered to U.S. forces at Appomattox Courthouse, VA in 1865, ending the U.S. Civil War.

 

On page 21, Kyle tells the old man they find held captive in the Skynet base, "Come with me if you want to live." This line, of course, has been used by him and others throughout the Terminator timelines.

 

On page 23, we learn that Ben's last name is Oliver.
