Terminator Role Reversal

I just realized something. When Derek Reese was shown killing Andy Goode, Sarah Connor narrated the original words spoken by Kyle Reese about the Terminator. She was saying how it can't be bargained with, it can't be reasoned with, it doesn't feel pity or remorse, or fear, and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead. So I guess the point of that is how Derek Reese crossed the line that John and Sarah were unwilling to cross in T2. When you kill another human, you lower yourself to the killbot level.

Then, last episode, Cameron (the Terminator girl) was doing ballet, and Sarah Connor narrated how if ever the Machines become too much like us, they won't have to kill us because they'll be us.

So -- Derek is becoming like a Terminator, while Cameron is becoming like a human... What does it mean?
