He did say he'll be back and so he is. Fans of the long-time franchise will be thrilled to hear about the next chapter, Terminator: Dark Fate. Another mixture of hard-hitting action, humans fighting robots, and just straight up mayhem all around. Have a look at the things that you might have missed by taking a gander at the top Easter eggs in Terminator: Dark Fate. There are definitely some things here that you might not have seen coming!
Even the unlikeliest of pairings have their fair share of similarities just like how Terminator: Dark Fate references The Bible at one point in the movie. Sarah Connor refers to herself as "Mother Mary", the virgin mother of Jesus Christ. Jesus was the prophesized savior of humanity in Christian scriptures while Sarah gave birth to Jon Connor, the prophesized savior of humanity in the Terminator Saga.
The film showcases two spins on the franchise's most iconic catchphrase with the latter being kind of a twist. The phrase "I'll be back" was originally heard in the 1984 Terminator film. In Dark Fate, however, Sarah Connor is the one to utter the words after she meets Grace for the first time. The other spin happens when the T-800 tells his surrogate family, "I won't be back" before he leaves to face the Rev-9.
Director Tim Miller insisted on adding this specific Easter egg into the film, one of Dwight Yoakam's rockabilly hits, "Guitars and Cadillacs." The song can be heard when Rev-9 falls out of the sky and lands into a random family's backyard barbecue. Fans might remember the song from Terminator: Judgment Day when Arnold Schwarzenegger walked into the bar right after he was transported.
Terminator: Dark Fate wouldn't be complete without the original terminator himself. Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the film as Carl, a draper. What's interesting about his day job is the phone number for Carl's Draperies is 888-512-1984 which happens to be May 12, 1984, the U.S. release date of The Terminator. Fans can also try to call the actual number and be greeted by the terminator's most iconic catchphrase.
This Easter egg comes in the form of one of the main characters, Grace. She's a combatant from the future that eventually learns that she's a half-human, half-robot cyborg hybrid. What's interesting about it is that it actually references one of the franchise's least well-regarded films, Terminator: Salvation. Like Grace, Sam Worthington's character, Marcus, is met with the same revelation.
Did someone mention deja vu? A lot of fans might be surprised to hear about this Easter egg that pays tribute to Terminator 3. At the end of Terminator 3, the T-850 Terminator which was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger defeats the T-X model by removing his power core and jamming it into the evil terminator's head. Dark Fate ends in the same way with Grace's power core getting jammed into the Rev-9's head.
Terminator: Dark Fate takes wholesale repurposing to a whole other level. If you thought the Star Wars franchise was recycling key sequences, Dark Fate recycles actual scenes spread across the franchise's different movies. The chase scene on a Mexican freeway, the bad guy steals a helicopter, good guys hide out in a motel and even Arnold sacrificing himself for the greater good. All of which are Easter eggs in itself.
