    Too bad pops didn't plant explosives in the Genisys plant while he was doing construction work there.

      That's probably why he got laid off.

    Genisys is about to go online and the headquarters are almost completely empty. No ceremony. No party. No press. Makes sense.

      If a T-800 bathes in liquid metal, it will be upgraded for some reason.

          Don't shoot the helicopter blades or engine, just try to shoot the bulletproof John Conner flying it.

            While police are swarming the hospital, you can have a long conversation in the parking garage and no one will notice you.

              When fleeing an evil terminator, casually walk to your next destination, until it shows up.

                A young AI program will look a child. When it learns more, it will look like a teen and then an adult because the audience needs to know metaphorically that Skynet/Genisys is growing more and more.

                  Pops will hold T1000 into the acid shower rather than toss it and let his own arm's flesh disintegrate so he doesn't have to follow Kyle and Sarah through the time machine. That way, the plot can get more complicated when arriving in 2017. Smart robot.

                    Terminator John Connor thought it was wise to speed up Genisys going online from 15 hours to 13 minutes..... instead of right now.

                      All Terminators like to walk slowly instead of run when engaging a target. Must be the 'lazy writing bug' in their programming.

                        T-800s can manipulate liquid metal for some reason.

                          Only humans are smart enough to send more than 1 person simultaneously through a time machine. Skynet will never ever think to do such a thing.

                            The 1984 terminator will automatically attack a fellow terminator on sight.

                              The pops terminator only brings a shotgun to take out the 1984 terminator.

                                  A T-800 with sudden liquid metal properties will not alarm Sarah Connor.

                                      Pop's is upgraded and he is legit. It not like Skynet would reprogram him or send another T-1000 to look like pops.

                                              Sarah Connor kills a T800 with one shot from a rifle, but super terminators with advanced killing technology just can't seem to kill pops who is also a T800.

                                                    That really bugged me. There was conveniently 2 helicopters on the roof and obviously a helicopter chase was going to happen.
