Under the Dome

Under the Dome is an American science fiction drama television series that premiered on CBS on June 24, 2013. The series was developed by Brian K. Vaughan and based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. Baer was reported as the showrunner in November 2012, but as of August 2013, Vaughan serves as showrunner. CBS renewed Under the Dome for a 13-episode second season to air in the summer of 2014, with Stephen King writing the premiere episode.

Under the Dome tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill in Maine, where a massive, transparent, indestructible dome suddenly cuts them off from the rest of the world. With no Internet access, no mobile signals and limited radio communication, the people trapped inside must find their own ways to survive with diminishing resources and rising tensions. While military forces, the government and the media positioned outside of this surrounding barrier attempt to break it down, a small group of people inside attempt to figure out what the dome is, where it came from, and when (and if) it will go away.

Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Nicholas Strong, Colin Ford, Jolene Purdy, Aisha Hinds, Dean Norris

Under the Dome - 1x13 - Curtains

The monarch hatches, and the butterfly starts flying around inside the mini dome violently and creating expanding black spots where it crashes against the surface. These spots are mirrored in the big dome and begin to expand until both domes are jet black, casting the town into permanent darkness. Joe suggests the four touch the dome, but Linda cuts in, stating the egg is police property, the four choose not to stop her, knowing she will be knocked unconscious allowing them to escape. Junior, Angie, Joe, and Norrie then touch the dome together, the mini dome shatters releasing the both the Egg and butterfly, and at first it seems to hover round their prime candidate for Monarch, Barbie, but finally, they discover that the Monarch is Julia. They receive a visit from one of the dome's people who looks like Alice. The visitor states that they have taken human form to "bridge the divide", and that the reason for the dome is "to protect them". When they ask from what, the reply is "you will see, in time". They also discover that they must earn the light by keeping the egg safe. Barbie then gets captured by Junior. Big Jim thinks that his family are the chosen ones because his mentally ill wife had been painting pink stars and eggs in her last days before suicide, indicating she had some knowledge of things to come. When Junior confronts him, he admits that he has actually killed the ones he accused Barbie of, but just to save the town. They put Barbie in a noose and then Julia has to choose to save the egg and the lives of the entire town, or save Barbie by giving the egg to Big Jim within one hour. She accepts the responsibility of the title Monarch and chooses the egg (and the lives of everybody in the dome) and protects it by throwing it in the lake. The egg starts to glow, and the pink stars rise to the sky. Big Jim says the Lord is blessing the hanging, the stars continue to rise and remove the dark black "curtain", replacing it with a curtain of piercing bright white light, increasing in intensity until things start to fade to white. Junior seeks guidance from his dad, who continues to tell him to pull the lever, as the camera focuses on Barbie's face, and then the episode and season ends.
