We have always suspected Mackenzie Davis as playing a machine in the new Terminator movie but now we just might have proof, courtesy of a new report from Spain.
The character of Davis has been described as a soldier assassin but conflicting reports came out early on; initially comparing Davis as the torch taker of Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the same report (edited mere minutes later) it changed to say that she was taking the torch from Linda, as if to mask an initial report about her involvement in the movie.
We felt her [Mackenzie’s] character was from the future, and she is covered in mysterious scars in almost consistent patterns on her flesh. We have seen in earlier set reports that she seems slightly vulnerable; needing assistance and needing to be carried by Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) but we have seen this before with Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) in Terminator Salvation- where he was unaware he was half human/half Terminator. With this in mind, we are going to press forward and speculate that Mackenzie Davis was a SkyNet experiment and if she is part machine she is not aware of it… she still has emotions and feels pain but she is potentially a machine but also possibly as much human as machine?
Of course we have toyed with other theories, that she might be the female John Connor from a folded time – like how Dark Horse Comics gave us Jane Connor, a resistance soldier, or even the equivalent to Cameron from TSCC for the Terminator movies. We could be wrong on all of the above, and the potential proof that follows could be a studio red-herring just to melt our minds into metal junk but the great thing about this movie is (mostly) that we, the fans, don’t know what the fuck is going on and that makes it more exciting.
The potential proof that Mackenzie Davis is indeed a machine/Terminator:
An eyewitness has seen a blonde woman, describing her as having blonde hair and of a muscular build, with a deep wound revealing a metallic skeleton underneath. Blonde- instantly rings bells of Mackenzie Davis…
An SUV chases a tourist in the neighborhood of Cuatro Santos, in the early afternoon. Macarras in search of anger? Do not! It is a pursuit of the filming of ‘Terminator 6’ by a street Ramón y Cajal turned into a border road in Mexico in which heroes and villains of the film franchise starring Arnold Schwarzenneger settle their differences.
For the third and final day, in the last month and a half, Cartagena became the scene of the raids of the Connor, his followers and the ‘cyborg’ that protect or persecute them since the saga began. “Look, that’s the double of the bad one in the movie,” says a young man as he watches a muscular blond woman, 1.80m tall, with an arm made up as if she had suffered a deep wound, letting on a metallic skeleton.
Interestingly these scenes (although filmed in Cartagena, Spain) are indeed situated (plot-wise) in America, as the vehicles have American license plates…
The whole route from the Los Barreros roundabout (La Palma road), to the junction with Jorge Juan street, in front of the Corte Inglés, was tuned yesterday. Signs of ‘High’, like those of Mexico, supplanted by one day those of ‘Stop’. A neighborhood bar on Saturday changed its offer of michirones by burritos and tacos, as in any Mexican canteen. And cars with American license plates completed the stage. All under the supervision of a team in which the ‘big shots’ of the production were mixed with the simple ‘machacas’ that prevented the curious from taking more photos or recording more videos than they should. “Otherwise, we’ll have to vacate the whole street,” they said. So, what the locals and those who went to see if a star appeared,
Now we surely need more proof so, now some photos give us more…

On closer inspection of the photos we can clearly see they are stunt doubles (for Natalia and Mackenzie), relating back to earlier; we can see Mackenzie Davis’ stunt double is indeed muscular and wearing the white vest (similar to Linda Hamilton’s in T2) which we have seen Davis wearing.

Let’s finish with another Cartagena set video from another fan (we are loving these real locations)…
So, do you have any theories and do you think Mackenzie’s character is a machine? Let us know in the comments below.
