Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Patrick appeared in Episode 205 "Goodbye to All That" as The Bedell Terminator, a T-888 sent by Skynet to terminate Martin Bedell, a future officer with the Resistance. It was noted in several production Podcasts and Blogs that Patrick was allowed to use the actual .45 Long slide with laser sighting used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original movie; a fact that delighted not only the actor and the crew, but fans as well.
