That's pretty much what I said over 100 posts back:

apparent is the relevance of the music in the basement.HOWEVER
...I will venture a guess.
Cameron has tucked herself away in the basement (Anyone else notice the similarities in the surroundings of the house they're currently in and the hostage facility?
) and is repairing herself (or healing John or maybe, just maybe, even Kyle, or both, or all of the above) via whatever she's taking from the hostages, be it blood, etc.
She has reprogrammed the minons around her with the spare parts she's collected over time. (Notice that the Terminators aren't killing anyone and know just how much force to use to knock humans out without causing any damage, hinting to a bit of Cameron's learned value of human life?) She's playing the piano either as an example of her achieving/attempting humanity or even to soothe the injured Connor/Reese/self.
This would explain why "Reeses went to Piecies" when her later sees her in our present and when he sees her in the underground facility. She's taken something from him, but he was not privy to the details of why she did it. He seems genuinely shocked when she saves him in our future timeline, yet leery of her intentions in our present.
It's possible that Cameron has hacked into the mainframe of Skynet and uses the planes as a means of tracking the Terminator movement. Or, the planes do not attempt attacks upon our hostages becuse Terminators are present, therefore the humans aren't seen as a threat, also being all tied up.
The fact that our hostages are overtly released hints to me that Cameron has gotten what she needed for her self-repairs or healing of her human cohorts and values the lives of John's future team. If she is indeed inside the house with them, it explains how she immediately recognized the Resistance fighters in our present at the safehouse a few episodes back.
To me, all roads lead to Cameron in the basement.
I was wrong in saying that Cameron was playing the piano, but the attempt at humanity was spot on with the ballet. No doubt that this is an indirect attempt at pleasing John, who scolds her cold, calculating demeanor at every opportunity.
I no longer think that she was taking blood, but do imagine that it was T-80085 that branded the "Resistance Fighters" with the special tattoos, as she immediately recognized them. (Both the tats and the fighters.)
It's possible that future John was unwilling to send his best men into the past for whatever reasons, and that Cameron took it upon herself to capture and "enlist" them herself, as her primary mission is to protect John at all costs
. She knows they are more valuable in the past than the future. It's also possible that Cameron planted a chip or something into Reese, as he was most certainly the one that killed our Turk inventor, yet clearly denied it with much conviction. He seemed in a panic immediately after the shooting, yet had a stone-cold look on his face during the act.
It is also possible that Reese simply doesn't trust Cameron because she's TOO
human, thus destroying his perception of the machines.
With smart dialogue, creative writing, good acting, and an overall tone that evokes some of the most spirited and speculative watercooler talk we've seen in years...The Sarah Connor Chronicles deserves a 5-season extension!
