The ending of 'Terminator 2' finds Sarah and John Connor sending their Terminator friend into a pool of molten steel after defeating the T-1000.
Everyone is hopeful because if one machine could get what human existence is all about, then they're going to be okay. But also, they prevented that whole Skynet disaster from happening! In this alternate version, the film flashes forward 30 years to an old Sarah Connor and older John, who now has a little daughter. Sarah talks about how not much has changed and everyone is blissfully unaware of the future they could have had — and oh yeah, Michael Jackson turned 40, just in case you were wondering. It's not the worst alternate ending we've seen, but the old age makeup is pretty lame and the monologue doesn't quite nail the landing James Cameron was probably aiming for.
