What Happened To Derek Reese In The Music Room

So a couple of episodes ago on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," Derek Reese flashbacked to the future, where he and fellow soldiers had been captured by the Machines. He could swear he heard music coming from beneath the floor, which he and the others were chained to. At one point, one of the guys was taken down there. When he was brought back, he was unconscious.

Then Derek Reese was brought down there. When he was brought back, he was a little tired-looking. Did the Machines draw his blood for cloning purposes? What was the music about? Comfort?

Last episode, Cameron (the girl Terminator, named for James Cameron?) was dancing ballet at the end. We of the audience could hear piano music. Was that just for added effect, for our sake only? Or was Cameron listening to music while dancing? Whatever the case, Machine-hating Derek saw her dancing, and it looked like he had tears in his eyes. Or maybe he just got upset. Anyway, why?

While Cameron was dancing, we of the audience heard Sarah Connor narrate, saying how if machines became human-enough, they'd no longer need to destroy us. They'd be us.

So what if the Music Room was where the Prince of Terminators was practicing playing the piano, and he wanted feedback from real humans?

Or what if the Music Room was where "love bots" could perfect their infiltration and seduction techniques?
