Dolores asks him, “What have you become?” He wants to know where is the center of the Maze. She is crying because he will die and says that the world belongs to Wyatt. She punches William and knocks him down into the church. He tries to fight her, but you can’t fight a Terminator. Dolores takes out her gun, he wants to go to the next level, and stabs her with a knife. She has visions of the younger William. Teddy rides up and shoots The Man in Black. He takes her away.
