Johnny in the original timeline

Johnny, also known as "Kotex",[1] was drinking outside with his friends, Mark and Rick, in the early morning hours of May 12, 1984, when a Terminator arrived from the future. As the naked Terminator approached the punks outside the Griffith Observatory and begins repeating what they say to him. Unaware of what the machine really was, Johnny surmised that he was "a couple cans short of a six-pack", but when the Terminator demanded their clothes, he reveals a switchblade and expressed his displeasure with the stranger. The Terminator then forcefully pushed Johnny away and into a gate, apparently killing him.[2]

In the Genisys timeline, he avoids being attacked by the T-800 when another one arrives to engage the machine. Unlike his two friends, he is left staring at the stand off between the two machines for a while, until he decides to run away.
