Battle Across Time
Sometime after the destruction of Cyberdyne Building, Sarah Connor and her son, John Connor, learned that Cyberdyne Systems was still developing Skynet and they intruded a presentation held hosted by Kimberley Duncan for investors. However, another T-1000 tracked down John Connor and tried to kill him after it killed Duncan. The T-800 suddenly showed up from Time Portal and saved John, telling him "I said I'd be back. Come with me if you want to live." Sarah told John to follow the T-800 and it then gave John a ride to the future from the Time Portal.
However, the T-1000 followed them through the Time Portal and chased them, attempting to kill John Connor. The T-800 shot the T-1000 in the head, making the T-1000 immobile and left far behind. The T-800 told John they were heading to the Skynet Central Core in order to destroy Skynet.
On their way to Skynet, the T-800 and John were found and targeted by an HK-Aerial. After the bike was hit by its plasma blast, they went into a ruin to hid themselves from the HK-Aerial. Unable to reacquire John Connor and the T-800, the HK sent four Mini Hunters into the ruin in search of the two. Three of them were shot down by the T-800, while the last one was caught by the T-800 and smashed into the wall. Soon afterwards, a T-800 Endoskeleton showed up and attacked them. Before it could terminate John, the Endo was decapitated by the T-800, who threw the wreckage of the last Mini Hunter toward the Endo. After taking the M-25 Phased Plasma Rifle from the Endo, the T-800 pick up the Endoskull. While John asked if the T-800 knew the Endo, the T-800 humorously claimed the Endo was his college roommate before tossing the Endoskull away.
After leaving the ruin, the T-800 took John to the Skynet Central Core and entered the facility before the gate closed. The two then reach the Skynet Core and John rigged explosives in the room. However, the pillar around the core was in fact the T-1000000, which began to attack the T-800 and John. John and the T-800 used liquid nitrogen to freeze the T-1000000 and shuttered it into pieces. T-800 took John to the Time Displacement Equipment, but John was not willing to leave the T-800 alone. T-800 told John "Go! I'll be back!" After John left via the TDE, the T-800 took the explosive to destroy Skynet and vanished in the blast.
