Yep! if you keep thinking about it what we know now about the series cause when the 1st movie came out we didn't know much about the whole history of John Connor, when the 1st one came out, I thought it was cool and all that, how this guy came from the past to try to protect Sarah Connor cause she was the mother of the rebel leader at the time. We didn't know that he was the father until the ending! Definitely is a paradox! I think if it was me, that had to send my father back in time like that to his doom without even getting the chance to tell him that he was my father, I think that would drive me crazy! Isn't that the grandfather paradox, or something like that!
