We then see John Connor and the resistance in the same Time Displacement Room.

Linda Hamilton played the character in The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, but refused an offer to reprise the role in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Emilia Clarke’s Game of Thrones co-star Lena Headey played Sarah Connor in the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles television series.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day featured a deleted scene showing John Connor, Kyle Reese and several Resistance fighters taking over a building where the TDM is housed in 2029. Here is some background info from the wiki:

This “Time Displacement Complex” is located in Los Angeles, with the TDE itself located deep underground, accessible by a long stainless steel elevator shaft. The TDE is located behind vault-like doors, in a large chamber the size of a high-school gym. At the center of the room’s floor is a circular hole, with three enormous chrome rings inside it, suspended by a magnetic field. Individuals traveling through time must first be covered with a conductive substance so that the time-field will follow their outline, then step into the hole at the center of the inner ring, where they will be suspended like the rings. As the TDE is started up, the rings rotate around each other on different axes like a complex gyroscope, and the floor splits open like wedges of a pie which pull back from the center. The rings spin faster, and begin to descend into a vast circular space below. Lightning begins to arc in this space below as a charge builds up, and finally there is a blinding flash of light as the traveler is sent through time.

A time distortion bubble appears floating in a alleyway somewhere in Los Angeles in the year 1984. The original film coudn’t pull off this effect, we only saw rotoscoped lightning and Michael Biehn falling to the pavement from off screen.

This shot looks familiar, almost an exact replica of the same shot in The Terminator.
