In this episode of Under the Dome, Big Jim turns the town against Barbie when the truth about his past is revealed. Meanwhile, Maxine makes it personal when she confronts Barbie's closest ally.
Angie, Joe, Norrie and Junior are in the barn after they have activated the pink stars constellation map. They decide to tell Julia about what is going on and get her help. At the same time Big Jim is trying to convince Linda that Barbie needs to be arrested because he killed Peter. Also Julia and Barbie decide to go see Peter’s grave to bring some needed closure for their relationship. Then Maxine comes to Julia’s door and shoots Julia. And this is just the beginning of the episode.
In short, Barbie takes Julia to the town’s clinic. While there, Joe meets up hoping to tell Julia to help but he ends up helping save Julia’s life. At the same time, there was a massive tornado in the dome. There are multiple reasons why it may have started: one being that Julia was shot and other is Junior deciding to leave the group. After saving Julia, Barbie leaves to confront Maxine. At the same time Maxine, finds her dead mother on the shoreline of the lake. Then Big Jim arrives at the clinic and decides to join up with Barbie to take down Max.
They head over to the fight club and Barbie attaches a device that will shut down the lights. He also grabs some flares to ambush Maxine. When they get inside, the entire place is empty but Maxine and her henchman holds the two men at gun point. The lights go out and Big Jim and Barbie capture the two for imprisonment. Then Big Jim fires and kills Maxine and the henchman. He tried to kill Barbie but Barbie took his gun away. Linda shows up and Big Jim plays victim pinning the murder of the two on Barbie. Now, Barbie is on the run from the law. Big Jim goes on the airwaves to tell the town that Barbie is wanted for murdering Maxine.
While all of this is going on, the group of four is trying to communicate with the large dome. They all touch it and see Big Jim bleeding all over the place. They figure out that they must kill Big Jim.
This was another fantastic episode. This episode had a lot of fantastic twists, revelations, and great set up for the future. At this point, I don’t know where this show is going and that is a good thing. Under the Dome airs on CBS.
