The dome continues to contract. I’m a few weeks behind. Oh yeah… SPOILERS AHEAD.
This is my least favorite episode of the season. It may be the worst of the series. Too much going on about the dome as an entity with decision making capabilities.
When something goes wrong and Nori asks “What’s happening?” Rebecca has to answer as if she’s an authority figure. She’s borderline useless.
The dome stops contracting when Barbie and his dad negotiate the return of the egg. Somehow the red door will work again.
Melanie is getting worse after the transfusion, the worsening somehow afflicted by the angry deity known here as the dome. A series of dialogues and a vision bring the old hands and new together to help her.
Don Barbara has his ego handed to him when he realizes he’s not in charge after all. Evil corporations can be so evil. Evil comes by proxy this time through the anonymous soldiers. How did Nori know his name is Don? This episode is the first time I’d heard it. Maybe Hunter told her.
If they don’t stop it, the dome’s contracting will kill them all via the mounds of earth crushing them.
The eight (seven) hands heal Melanie in the field equidistant from every dome surface. Then the angry deity known as the dome sucks her down. Dissatisfied with the rapture’s glacial approach, Lyle kills Pauline so they can go to heaven together. Big Jim kills Lyle of anger but Lyle thanks him for doing him a solid. Not sure that he’s going to heaven as well. Too late to warn him.
The episode ends with the song “Turn, Turn, Turn” – horribly thematic along with the episode title.
Bah. I’m sure some things need to be in place before the season finale. At least one more season is due since the dome isn’t going anywhere soon. Season three will start about four weeks under the dome. How will they add new characters this time?
