10 days Under the Dome.
There’s been fire, a plague, nervous breakdowns, riots, renouncement of constitutional rights, deaths and more deaths, contaminated water supplies…
And now: a fight club
Our show opens: The egg has a visitor. A caterpillar. It will turn into a MONARCH BUTTERFLY. Off to find the fourth hand/someone else having seizures.
Dodee has been following them around. Sneaks a peek at the minidome.
Barbie goes to see Big Jim he needs “to talk about Max” they need to get rid of her “insurance policy” so they don’t have to sweat her blackmail threats. Big Jim surmises that whatever she’s got is off the coast on a small island. Max busts in and makes threats on account of Big Jim not wanting to find her chocolate and conditioner. Please.
The minidome shocks Dodee and Joe, Norrie and Angie rush back to find her out cold. They rush her to the hospital where she’s forgotten what happened and she thinks its from the generator at the radio station. Angie asks about the seizures, someone had one at her 10th grade dance.
Julia is looking for Barbie and finds Linda and Linda asks her about the woman who gave a tip about propane deliveries. Linda shows Julia the footage with Max and Duke. Linda finds a safe deposit box key in Duke’s hat.
Salt is better than cash if you want to get in to the cement factory. What’s at the cement factory? A fight club.
And a new part of Chester’s Mill we hadn’t heard about,
Apparently more people in town owe Max money. If she’s going to be trapped in this hell hole she’s going to live as well as she can.
Angie comes clean to her brother about how she was kidnapped and why she thinks Junior is the fourth hand. Norrie is all for beating his ass after they try to unlock the mini dome.
Speaking of getting his ass kicked, he gets punched down as he tries to enter the fight club… where Barbie is the main event. SHOCKER!!
The woman that’s been so polite while Big Jim investigates turns out to be Max’s mom, and she’s well armed. Claire got pregnant with Max at 16 and turned to prostitution to support her family. Neither will forget the “Real Chester’s Mill” the back stabbing, the nefarious plots, a magnet for the worst of humanity… like Junior.
Angie, Joe and Norrie went and saw Junior’s mom’s studio and he creeps out of the shadows and Joe tries feebly to attack him.
After taking some hard hits, Barbie gets the upper hand and taunts the man instead of kicking him while he’s down… to Max’s dismay. She knew he’d throw the fight, so the town loses their shirts while she cleans up.
Julia and Linda find a confession from Duke. He vowed to keep drugs out of Chester’s Mill and payed off Maxine to keep her drugs out of there. Julia breaks into her husband’s deposit box, finds a letter and says she needs to talk to Barbie.
Big Jim has Claire hostage on a boat. And then she falls in. Big Jim just drives the boat away. +1 to Big Jim’s body count.
Max: “I won. You… umm.. helped me win.”
Barbie: “What if you don’t get it? Don’t get your whiskey, don’t get me?”
Max: “I’ll burn this whole place down.”
Julia is waiting for Barbie. Barbie comes in bloody and beat up and ready to confess (which he almost did, back in the MOAB episode). Julia knows her husband pulled a gun on Barbie. She also knows it was never loaded. Her husband was committing suicide.
Linda visits Big Jim and summons him to the station.
The mini dome explodes into pink stars when all 4 hands are on it.
So… Junior is necessary and his secret is out but he’s mostly forgiven… Barbie’s secret is out but he is forgiven.
Which is BS.
But now Max has nothing to hold over Barbie… she’s probably not going to last long.
Dodee got 30 seconds screen time. No Carolyn. No Phil. No Ben. AGAIN.
WTF is that? Minority characters get the boot when they can’t advance the plot of… the murders and kidnapper… and the oblivious/boring… white people. #fail
Last time we saw Carolyn she lost Alice. And while I know grieving takes time… I’m sure she would check on her daughter.
Last time we saw Phil he had gotten shot when Big Jim went after Ollie’s well. He’s not dead… but where is he?
Last time we saw Ben he stood up to Junior when he told Ben to leave Angie’s diner.
