Correction: You can't definitively say what a character could not know and claim it to be a mistake without giving a supporting argument for the position.

Correction: This is something future Daniela could have told her at any point in time in the future.

Corrected entry: When Grace steals the pickup, she smashes the lock to jump start the vehicle. Later, when Grace is temporarily incapacitated, Daniela gets behind the wheel and turns the lock to start the vehicle as if it were still there.

Correction: The car you mentioned was destroyed killing Dani's brother. At that point they are using Sarah's car that they stole from her. You can even see the keys still on the ignition switch.

Corrected entry: If Sarah's Skynet future never happened and instead Grace's Legion future came to be, nobody could possibly know the coordinates of the T-800 to tattoo onto Grace, as it never existed in the Legion future. If Sarah's Skynet future never happened and instead Grace's Legion future came to be, nobody could possibly know the coordinates of the T-800 to tattoo onto Grace as it never existed in the Legion future.

Correction: The T-800 is from a deleted timeline, however he is still in the current timeline. If the Legion future exists in the timeline he's currently stuck in, that means he's in that timeline and would have taken steps to have his coordinates known for that future.

The T800 coordinates are given to Grace by Dani herself, as by the time she sends Grace back in time she already encountered Carl and knows his location.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Sarah Connor says Skynet never happened because she and John changed the future. Then who sent the T-800 (who would later become Carl) back in time to kill Connor? If the T-800 was a terminator lost in the timeline, his very existence should have ceased the moment Skynet was prevented.

Epigenis

Correction: The Terminator that killed John had already been sent back in time prior to the end of Terminator 2. After this point, the future changed, but the Terminator was already in 1991. Changes in the present do not cause items previously sent back to be removed.

Correction: Sarah's truck can be seen in the background when Grace arrives. Grace doesn't look like any Skynet Terminator, and the time bubble she arrives in is different to the ones in T1 and T2. We can infer that Sarah followed Grace from her arrival to the bridge in an attempt to understand what was going on with the new time travellers before intervening.

Plot hole: Sarah turns up on the bridge to fight the Rev-9, we later learn that she is texted the location of where to be as when the terminators travel though time it causes a gravitational anomaly, and this is where she needs to be. The Rev-9 had been there ages killing Dani's dad etc, Sarah would have no idea to be on the bridge after the terminator has chased them though the town - she can't possibly know that location.

Suggested correction: Sarah is very skilled at fighting Terminators. She receives the coordinates but knows that many other real-world factors may impede her progress to those coordinates, so she makes efforts to prepare for that. Also, the coordinates that she received for the Rev-9 may very well have told her to fight it on the bridge because the T800 who sent those coordinates knew that Sarah would also then be able to rescue Dani and Grace, and eventually meet up with him as a result.

I'd say the real reason Sarah is on the highway to fight Rev-9 is that she followed it. She misses the moment it arrived (from the future), she follows it to the car factory, but she misses it again, then she finally catches it up on the highway.

It is explicitly stated by the T800 Carl that he was sending Sarah the coordinates of where the terminators would appear, because the arrival would create a space-time wrinkle he is able to measure ahead of time. There is no indication he can predict the future events and send Sarah coordinates of places to be other than that.

Question: If Skynet was prevented from coming online, how did Legion develop the idea for creating terminators?

Darth Crucible

Answer: Skynet and Legion were both developed for identical purposes: defense network artificial intelligence. It stands to reason they would both evolve in similar ways. Since both Skynet and Legion were fighting a similar human resistance, they both developed similar infiltration units.
