Jesse Flores claimed to have gone AWOL but we learn later that she actually left the future on a personal mission to destroy the trust between John Connor and the Terminator Cameron. She also brought Riley Dawson from the future and used her to break the relationship between John & Cameron.

How did she get back from the future if John didn't send her, and why was she so upset at the thought of John having Cameron around?

  • I don’t know much about the show, but it’s possible that these sub-questions might be separate enough that they would better be asked separately (posts with multiple questions are sometimes “too broad.”) – Adamant Oct 15 '16 at 8:30
  • Still, just being about one character may not be enough. Still, I’m not sure, since I don’t know much about this show. Probably you should wait for people who know a bit more about The Sarah Connor Chronicles to offer their opinions. – Adamant Oct 15 '16 at 8:33

Jesse took the decision to come back from the future after it became apparent that John wasn't simply trying to kill all of the Terminators, he was actively engaged in two projects that she abhorred;

1) Negotiating with the Cyborg Resistance ("Will you join us?") and

2) using re-conditioned Terminators on the Human Resistance's bases.

When she learned that John had sent back a female-form Terminator (Cameron) to protect his younger self she realised that his fascination for Terminators may have been down to his close relationship with one in young-adulthood. She procured an attractive girl (Riley Dawson) and used her contacts with the brother of one of her unit to parlay a secret trip back into the past with the goal of turning John against Cameron.

Jesse: Not to me. There's metal everywhere these days. Looking for us. Working for us. Connor's got at least one in every major base. A big one flipped on us, took out half a bunker. Bird. Cullie. That's from the same shrapnel that killed Cullie.

Derek: How'd you get back here?

Jesse: Cullie's brother. He's a bubble tech.

Derek: He's the same one--

Jesse: Who sent you back. I know.
