About ten years after Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) has destroyed the original Terminator that was programmed to kill her, two Terminators arrive in Los Angeles from the post-apocalyptic year 2029. The first is the T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), the same type of cyborg that Sarah first encountered, while the second is the T-1000 (Robert Patrick). John Connor (Edward Furlong) is now living with foster parents Todd and Janelle (Xander Berkeley and Jenette Goldstein). He has grown up being told by his mother that he would someday lead the remnants of the human race to ultimate victory against the machines. Sarahís experiences have significantly changed who she was; She is no longer the frail woman that she was in the first film. Aware of what could ultimately happen to mankind, she has become far tougher and more vigilant, and suffers recurring nightmares about the end of the world. Her personality has led those around her, including her son, to think that she is insane. She has therefore been imprisoned in a mental institution, Pescadero State Hospital. Meanwhile, both Terminators eventually locate John Connor. The twist, given away by advance publicity, is that this time the T-800 had been captured and reprogrammed by the resistance group of humans from the future in order to protect John, while the T-1000, an advanced prototype terminator, has been sent by Skynet to kill him. The newer, sleeker model Terminator (a "mimetic polyalloy") is constructed of "liquid metal" and is able to emulate the physical form of any solid object of equal size that it samples through touch (excluding complex machines with moving parts or chemicals, like guns and explosives). More dangerously, it can emulate the voice and appearance of a human being.
After being rescued by the T-800 from the T-1000ís initial attempts to kill him, John realizes that his mother has been telling the truth and decides that he must rescue her from Pescadero. The Model 101 then reveals that it is programmed to follow his orders. When John sees it nearly shoot a man in the parking lot while carrying out its mission to protect him, he orders it not to kill anyone. He decides to use his power over the T-800 to his advantage and orders the Model 101 to help him rescue his mother. When they break into Pescadero, the Model 101 shoots the security guard at the gate in the legs, then takes his keys and weapons. The T-800 tells John, "He'll live," upholding John's order not to kill anyone else. Sarah is understandably frightened at first upon encountering another Terminator. She is told by her son that this time, it is here to protect them both, but she initially has a difficult time accepting it as an ally. Incidentally, Dr. Peter Silberman, the psychiatrist who has scoffed at both Reese and Sarah Connor's supposedly delusional claims of being hunted by a robot assassin, is profoundly shaken at seeing two such machines in action before his eyes. After Sarah is rescued, she questions the Terminator about the creator of Skynet, the supercomputer fated to destroy humanity in favor of machine rule. The cyborg informs her of Miles Dyson (Joe Morton), a top-level computer scientist at Cyberdyne Systems Corporation, and recounts the future history of Skynetís development, all the way up to August 29, 1997, the day Skynet will become self-aware and provoke a nuclear war on mankind (Judgment Day). Eventually, Sarah, John and the Terminator arrive in the desert at Enrique Salcedaís camp. Ever since Sarah gave birth to John, she has traveled everywhere, dating military men and trying to provide her son with a strong military background. Enrique is one of the men from her past, and he has preserved a weapons cache for Sarah and John for use in the event that nuclear devastation actually comes to pass. Sarah plans to flee over the Mexican border with John and the Terminator, armed with weapons from the cache.
Sarah witnesses their bonding when John is teaching the T-800 how to act more human and notes that a machine is the closest thing to a father that John has ever had, while other humans could get drunk, abusive, or negligent and therefore, could not fill the role of a father figure. Then she falls asleep at a table and has a nightmare about Los Angeles being destroyed by nuclear weaponry. She watches in horror as people, buildings, and cars are all incinerated in the blast, and although she tries to warn them, no one in her dream can hear her, and she is graphically incinerated herself. She suddenly wakes up and discovers that she has scratched "NO FATE" into the table she is sitting at, an allusion to the key message that was sent to her in the first film by the future John Connor via Kyle Reese: Sarah realizes what she must do, arms herself, and drives off in one of Enrique's cars. John recognizes the allusion to the message, and he and the Terminator realize that she is planning to kill Miles Dyson. At John's insistence - and over the T-800's objection - they drive off to go after her. At Dyson's home, Sarah breaks in and shoots the computer programmer in the shoulder, but is unable to kill him in front of his wife and son. John and the T-800 arrive, and the Model 101 reveals its origin to Dyson. Sarah, John and the cyborg inform Dyson of the consequences of his research and convince him that they must destroy all Cyberdyne technology used in building Skynet, including the heavily-guarded remains of the CPU and cybernetic arm left from the previous Terminator destroyed by Sarah. Sarah, John, the Terminator and Dyson infiltrate the Cyberdyne building and prepare explosives for detonation while retrieving the cybernetic arm and CPU from the first robot. However, their activities attract the attention of police and SWAT. While John and Dyson retrive the first T-800's cybernetic arm and Sarah is finishing preparing the explosives, the Terminator creates a diversion, strategically shooting and exploding several police cars in such a way that he kills none of the police officers. SWAT agents eventually break in, however, and during the firefight, Dyson is shot. Realizing his wounds are fatal, he stays behind with the detonator to allow the T-800, Sarah and John to make their escape. With his death, he releases the trigger, activating the bombs just after the SWAT team retreat from the area.
Meanwhile, the T-1000 arrives at Cyberdyne. John, Sarah and the T-800 flee, leading to a pursuit on the highway, which ends at a steel mill. Single combat between the two Terminators ensues, ending with the T-800 firing a grenade into the T-1000. The grenade explodes, causing the T-1000 to lose its balance and fall off a platform into a pool of molten steel. The T-1000 is unable to survive at such extremely high temperatures and eventually melts. John then throws both the first Terminatorís cybernetic arm and CPU into the molten steel. The T-800 then points out that it must also be destroyed in order to completely destroy all evidence of Skynet technology. John refuses to accept this and orders the cyborg not to go. The Terminator refuses his command, and when he sees tears on Johnís face, it states that finally understands why people cry, and that despite his learning ability, he is unable to. The Terminator then embraces John for the first and last time, and shakes hands with Sarah. It steps onto a chain overlooking the molten steel pool and bids both of them farewell; Sarah then lowers the chain and the cyborg into the molten steel. As they watch from above, the T-800 slowly disintegrates in the sizzling pool of fire. The last actual image of the Terminator is its outstretched hand forming a thumbs-up.
In the closing scene of the film, depicting a dark highway at night, Sarah Connor concludes that the future is not predetermined and whatever will happen depends on the choices that we make. She also states in voiceover that if a machine can learn the value of human life, so can humans themselves.
