Rita is a therapist working at a halfway house that Cameron stays at when Cameron temporarily loses her memory.
Rita is under the impression that Cameron is actually Allison Young from Palmdale, Florida. She begins helping Cameron regain her blocked memories as Allison Young, but Cameron also starts reverting to terminator. Eventually, Rita learns that Cameron wishes to assassinate a John Connor and "hang his head on a pike for all to see." A stunned Rita later calls the police so that Cameron can be arrested; however, Cameron and Jody have already left the halfway house.
