There was a minimum of actual interference from the movie's paymasters at Orion, partly because there was relatively little money at stake. There are only two recorded creative suggestions from the financiers. The first was the addition of a canine cyborg to accompany Reese, which James Cameron turned down. The second was a strengthening of the love interest between Reese and Sarah, which Cameron willingly accepted. This resulted in the film's one period of repose, in the scenes in which the couple shelter first under the bridge and then in the motel, reminiscing, bandaging, making love and manufacturing explosives.
James Cameron also wanted a shape-shifting Terminator in The Terminator, but due to the special effects of that time, it was impossible.
