Why Cameron was so awkward in the pilot episode

Cameron came across as warm friendly and entirely believable as a human in the pilot episode, but afterwards she just became awkward and non-humane like. This has not gone unnoticed by viewers, and I myself have always wondered why that was the case. I assumed it was a change of direction by the directors but an interview with executive producers John Wirth and Josh Friedman says otherwise.


Friedman shares, "Summer's character had been prepped for that particular situation, so it was almost like she had a script. Once they jumped forward in time, though, she was as adrift as everyone else."


The producers also hinted at a love triangle between John, Cameron and Riley (played by Leven Rambin) and that the theme for Season 2 would be "Evolution".

I think that she only acts more human around John. Since it was her mission to get close to him and protect him, she only acts human around him.

I thought she appeared very human while smashed between two huge trucks. It would appear she has been programed for manipulation and other psychological behaviors which add to her arsenal of weapons.
