Under the Dome (2013–2015): Season 1, Episode 13 - Curtains - full transcript

Julia awakens from her coma and insists that she and Angie free Barbie before they worry about the mini-dome and the black egg. Joe, Norrie and Junior watch the butterfly come out of the chrysalis but it appears trapped in the mini dome. As it flies around, the mini dome blackens as does the big dome, plunging Chester's Mills into darkness. Julia, Barbie and Angie catch up with them and find the mini dome disintegrated. The butterfly is alive however and the monarch is identified. While the monarch races to protect the egg, Barbie is recaptured and led to the gallows.

A few weeks ago,
an invisible dome crashed down

on Chester's Mill, cutting us
off from the rest of the world.

Why the dome is here
or what mysteries lie ahead,

we still don't know.

Every day it tests our limits,

bringing out the best
and the worst in us.

Some say we'll be stuck here forever,

but we will never stop fighting
to find a way out.

Big Jim threw
the egg off the cliff,

I'd say that proves
it's the dome's power source.

The dome's contracting.

You mean, it's shrinking?

I figured out that at its present
rate, it won't be long before the dome.

- Crushes us completely?
- All of this is your fault.

- Where's Melanie?
- I painted a vision...

it may show us how to save her.

Melanie! Melanie!

- Grab my hand! Grab my hand!
- In my dream, I saw Melanie disappear,

- but I didn't know it meant that.
- I love you.

You know why?

'Cause she's supposed to be with me, Jim.

We have to go after Melanie.

It's too dangerous.
No one's going anywhere.

- Can you see anything?
- No.

My God! There's another earthquake.

Where do you think the crater leads?

Maybe it's another
tunnel, like at the school.

- It could lead to Zenith.
- Yeah, or somewhere else.

Anywhere but here would be great.

We've got to check it out.

But we've got to do it right...

not risking anyone else's life.

Help me! Help!

- Pauline, Pauline!
- Lay her down on her side, gently.

Hunter, I need your shirt.

- What happened?
- Lyle. Lyle stabbed her.

- Where is he now?
- He's dead.


I tried to stop the bleeding.

- All our medical supplies are at the school.
- Well, let's get there now.

The Prius is at the edge
of the woods. Let's go!


I'm right here.

After I was stabbed, I had a vision.

The dome chose you.

But... you're not alone...

there's someone else,
but I can't see his face.

He... he doesn't know he's the one.

Come on, get a stretcher!
Let's get this underneath her.

I got to keep pressure on this wound.

- Rebecca, you're coming with us.
- Okay, okay.

- Make some room, make some room.
- Yeah. Yeah. Ready?

You're gonna be okay.

- Come on.
- One, two, three... up!

Keep breathing.

What's happening?

The walls are getting closer.

The dome's a sphere, it's
contracting horizontally

- and vertically...
- I think it's shutting down.

Everything inside's going haywire.

Yeah, we've got to get some gear,
so we can explore this crater.

Help! We need help!

It's near the Tilden farm.

I thought we got everybody
in the middle of town.

Tom must have gone back for something.

Hey, keep an eye on Hunter.

Don't do anything stupid.

- Wait, where are you going?
- We need to get a tablet.

- What for?
- When this thing opened,

it might have created
a new crack in the dome,

which means we may be able
to get a Wi-Fi signal.

Maybe we can get a message
to the Hounds of Diana.

If the Hounds tell us
that Melanie's in Zenith,

that means the crater's our way out.



- What happened?
- The shaking! It fell!

- It's crushing my leg!
- Help my dad!

- Get him, get my son out of here.
- Please...

- No, I need to help!
- Go with Julia, son.

- You're coming with us!
- Tom, I'll look after him.

Get him out of...

Let's try this.

- Buddy, go with Julia.
- I'm not leaving without you, Dad.

- We're gonna help him, all right?
- I'll try again.

Go! Get out! Go! Get out!

- No, Dad, no!
- Go, go!

- No, Dad! Dad, no! No!
- I think Joe's right,

that the dome's shutting down.

I'm guessing we've got a few more hours.

- No! Dad, no!
- Come on, buddy.

- Dad!
- I know, buddy.

Let's go, come on, guys.

- Get as much gauze as you can find.
- Move it over here! Move it over here!

Her abdomen's rigid...
she's bleeding internally.

Lyle might have lacerated an organ.
Kidney, maybe, or her liver.

Sam, I know you can help.
Do something, all right?

She's gonna need surgery
to stop the bleeding.

- Well, then, operate. Do whatever...
- I'm not a surgeon!

And we don't have anesthesia
or equipment.

I can't even tell which organ
is injured without an MRI.

- Listen, there is an answer...
- Find it!

- Please, you have to help her.
- I'm doing everything I can.

02x13 - Go Now

No signal. I'm sorry.

It was a good idea, though.

So, the crater didn't create
a crack in the dome,

and there's no new tunnel.

Maybe it did, but somebody's
just blocking the signal.

Yeah, or it's nothing but
a giant, killer suckhole.

We're literally hours away
from being crushed to death.

Maybe I should go find my mom,
and spend my last few hours with her,

instead of trying to convince myself

that whoever or whatever
controls this dumb dome...

even gives a crap about any of us.

Norrie, I need you here with me, okay?

- Hey. Hey, wh-what are you doing?
- Plan B.

Joe, you're not going down there.

This is my town... yours, too, now.

If we don't do anything, we all die.

We explore the crater,
might be able to save everyone.

He's right.

We know the dome better than anyone.

You're okay, Pauline.

What happened?

Lyle tried to take you away from me.

He stabbed you.

But he's dead now.

Everything's gonna be okay, I promise.

Can we give her something for the pain?

We've got morphine.

Just ten milligrams, okay?



We should talk.

Okay, I'll be right back.

She looks good... on the mend.

The internal damage is too massive
to control without surgery.

So, do something else.

I can keep her
as comfortable as possible,

but there is nothing I can do
to stop her from bleeding out.

What are you saying,
that she's gonna die?

If there was something else...

anything, I would do it.

I don't accept that.

Pauline came back to save us,

not bleed out in front of her son.

The dome won't let her die.

This is just another test.

My family, my wife...

we were chosen.

We've got to get Mom back to the crater.

Melanie didn't just disappear
into thin air.

It must lead somewhere.

I hope it does, Junior,

but Pauline's injuries are too severe.

If we move her, it will
accelerate the bleeding.

Well, tell me what we can do.

- She needs fluids.
- Where do I get saline?

- The clinic?
- I'll find it.

It is another tunnel.

But it's different than the
one underneath the school

What are those things?

I don't know,

but they're cool.

Yeah, and kind of terrifying.

All right, let's do this.

Maybe we can figure out
what happened to Melanie.


Come on.

You okay, Mom?

Just a little pain.

Can we give her... some more morphine?

We don't want to give her an overdose.

Junior, it's okay.

Dad's coming back.

Okay? And we're gonna fix you
up... just like Melanie.

Do you think she's okay?
That she made it out?

Anything's possible.

My brushes and canvas.

What do you mean?

Maybe I can paint the way out.

Junior, it's important.

Go get them.


We've been through so much.

I got to see my sweet, sweet boy
become a man.

I love you, Mom.

I love you...



What you said to Junior...

it sounded like a good-bye.

We both know the truth.

- I'm not going to make it.
- We just have to get you stable.

If the crater's a way out,
we'll take you.


The dome's done with me.

I saw my own death.


All that matters is Junior.

That he survives.

And Jim won't let me go.

I don't want that.

What are you saying?

Let me go peacefully.

Becky, help me.


I think you were supposed
to be here for this.

I don't know about that.

I've still got to go grab that gear,
get back to the crater,

figure out what's down there.

We should split up.

I'll take Aidan back to the high school,
while you head back.

Well, wait for me at the school.

All right? Grab a walkie from Sam.
I'll be in touch.

All right, honey,
we're gonna head this way, okay?

What do we do about this fork?

Which way?

I have no idea.

Joe, look.

I think we just made our decision.

How long do you think
the crater's gonna stay open?

I-I don't know. Not long.

We've got to tell Barbie
there might be a way out.


What the hell do you think you're doing?

- We went down.
- Yeah, I-I see that.

What part of "Don't do anything
stupid" did you not understand?

Don't be pissed. We couldn't wait.

We found more tunnels.

There was a Monarch down there, too.

It-it showed us a path...
with a light at the end.

Did you see where it goes?

We had to get out,
things are shaky down there.

The passage may not be open for long.

But it goes somewhere.

And, like I said before,
anywhere's better than here.

It doesn't look like your dad's
showing up with the egg anytime soon.

The time between its
contractions is getting shorter.

And the dome's making the weather worse.

All right, well, we're going
down the crater.

It's our only shot.


I think we got another chance.

This might be the way out of here.




The crater could be the way out.

We've got to gather the town.

Okay, well, most everyone's
either here, at the Sweet Briar,

- or the church.
- All right, well, round them up.

- We've got to get everybody to the woods.
- How?

School buses.

They run on diesel.
There's a whole fleet.

Got to be fuel left in some of them.

I'll check it out. Round up the wounded...
we'll get them on first.

All right, anyone who can't fit
on the buses will just walk.

Jim, what are you doing here?

I'm looking for saline, someone's hurt.

W-Well, didn't you hear the plan?

We're leaving. Everyone.

- Did you find any saline?
- No, leave it.

We have to round everyone up.

Julia said there isn't much time.

Listen, if I don't find
that saline, my wife dies!

I knew it! Like it was waiting for me!


Your mom's here.

Julia wants our help
loading up the buses.

What's wrong?

Do you really think we're gonna get out?

I mean, the tunnels are freaky,
but, yeah, we'll make it.

It's not the tunnels.

It's what's after that.

Am I just supposed to go
back to my life in California?

Without my mom?

How can I go and just leave her here?

Hey, she's not here.

Neither is Angie.

They might be buried in Chester's Mill,
but they'll always be with us.

Do you know why I was going to boot camp?

Why I'm here in the first place?

I assumed you got
into some kind of trouble.

I punched some stupid girl
in the mouth and knocked her tooth out.

And all she did was make fun of my hair.

It's just so... stupid to
think how much I cared.

- If I had just ignored her...
- No, the dome wanted you here.

It would have found another way.

I don't care what the dome wanted.

Because I just want my mom.

Sometimes I think, on Dome Day,

if Angie and I just went
to brunch with my mom...

But then I never would have met you.

My mom told me before she died
to be brave.

And I just don't feel brave right now.


I don't know what's gonna happen,

but, whatever's out there,

we're gonna face it together.




Pauline, there's news.

The passage you opened...

we're evacuating everyone through it.

So, if-if you can just hold on,

we can try and get you to a doctor.

I won't make it.

I'll only slow down the people I love.

It's just a little longer.

You can do it.

No, this is what the dome wants.

I paid for my sins.

For once, I'll be able to sleep
without dreaming.

No, there's hope now.

We're only getting out because of you.


Junior will be safe.

Aah. This is so much pain.

Please... be kind.


Sweet girl.

Sweet girl.

Can you help me and make sure
everyone has a seat?

- Yeah, okay.
- Thanks, Aidan.


If it wasn't enough of a mess already.

The dome's contractions must be messing
with the weather patterns... or something.


Come with me now.

I told you a hundred times, I need to
stay here. I'm one of the four hands, mom.

- I have to help.
- I'm not asking you, Eleanor.

Hey, hey, hey.
Norrie, do me a favor, okay?

Get on this first bus,
I'm really gonna need your help

once we get to that crater.


Thank you.

Okay, come on.


Have you seen Andrea?

She's getting supplies. She's
gonna meet us at the crater.

All right, don't stop. Let's go!
Keep moving. Load up!

Keep moving.

- Hey, where's Pauline?
- She's still inside.

We're waiting for Jim
to get back from the clinic.

Well, he'd better hurry with that saline.

How is your sister?

Let me through! I got the saline.

Got it, come on.

- We've got to hurry.
- Let's go.

Do what you can for Pauline,
and then let's go.

I'll see you soon.

Baby, I got it for ya.

I found the stuff you need.

I told you the dome was looking after us.


I'm back, honey.


my pain is gone.

That's good.

That's good, that's real good.

I told you it's gonna be okay.

I know you love me.

I'm sorry.

You don't need to be sorry.

You don't need to be sorry.


Look at me.

What's wrong?

Her pulse is dropping.

Take care of Junior.


I love you all...

I just got you back.

You did this.

She said it was what the dome wanted.

She begged me.

You always have the solutions, don't you?

It was a kind thing to do. I'm sorry.

Always got something in your...

in your back pocket for every emergency.

It was her last request.

Now you can kill?

When it's my wife?


if Pauline thought...

that this is what the dome wanted...

The dome wanted my family together.

And you got in the way.

Walk away, Jim.

Go find Junior,

and get him out of here.

I'll miss my wife forever.

No one's gonna miss you.




My God.


You ok?

Get up.

What happened?

My God. No!

Where's Mom?

She's gone.

- What do you mean?
- Pauline asked Rebecca to help her...

end her life.

She was in so much pain.

Jim went after Rebecca.

I tried to stop him, I couldn't.

I'm so sorry, Junior.

Mom was trying to say good-bye.

I should have known.

We've got to find your dad...
he's gone crazy.

- We've got to talk him down.
- Why would I do that?

There's no talking to him,
there's only dealing with him.

Why'd you paint that, Pauline?

I wish you hadn't.


I'll make you a deal.

If you bring her back right now...

I won't murder every single one

of your special little friends.

I won't slit Julia's throat,

shoot Barbie in the heart,

or burn those kids alive.


You got three seconds.

Okay then.

I'm gonna free you from all this.

So you can go right
through that dome wall.

And it's gonna regret what it did to us.

I promise.

This is the same plan that we had before.

We're all gonna break up
into small groups,

keeping your family with you.

We will call you forward
one-by-one and get you down.

Once your entire group is down,

Joe and Norrie, here,
will guide you into...

How do you know this is safe?

I know because I've done it before.

And, look, I know you're all scared.

Okay? I-I-I know that I'm a stranger.

But for the last two weeks,
we have fought together

for the survival of this town.

But, right now, I need you to trust me.

'Cause we don't have another choice.

If we stay here, we die.

Now, come on!

Let's get out of here!

Carolyn, listen... I need you
to go down with me, okay?

Help me keep everyone calm.

Julia, Hunter.

Hey, can I get you guys
to stay at the top here?

All right? Keep everything orderly.

Make sure we don't leave anyone behind.

Am I forgetting anything?


You're doing exactly
what you're supposed to.

I love you.

I love you, too.

All right, you guys ready?

Let's do it.

All right, everybody...
group one, stick with me.

Just stay calm, all right?
We're gonna be fine.

Let's go.

Hold on, hold on.

It's okay, guys... we've been here before.

There's no need to be afraid.


All right, Carolyn.

Watch out!

Crack's getting wider.

- You okay?
- Yeah.

All right.

Everybody watch your step, all right?

We'll help you cross.

Okay, how are we doing?

Most folks are accounted for.

Julia, please be there.


What's wrong? Where are you?

I'm at my house. I need help, I... God!

Andrea? Andrea!




In here.

I knew you'd come running.

Put the bat down.

Julia, come in.

- Less is more.
- Julia?

Hey, Sam. What do you need?

You okay?

Yeah, I'm just helping Andrea.

We're headed back now.

Junior and I are at the crater
with Hunter.

Listen, you should know, um...

Pauline is dead.

And Jim killed Rebecca.

He's out there somewhere.

Got to go now, Sam.

What are you doing, Jim?


Against me?

What did I ever do,

except be your neighbor and friend?

It's not about you, honey.

Sam forgot to mention
that Rebecca murdered Pauline.

Yeah. I gave the dome a chance
to return her to me,

but it declined.

Which is bad for you.

Killing me... won't bring Pauline back.

Yeah, but it might ruin
some of the dome's plans.

And that's good enough.

Andrea was your friend.

Yeah, I know.

That's why I killed her quick.

You don't get that privilege.

Do you know why the dome didn't
bring Pauline back?

Because you're a joke.

'Cause the dome doesn't make deals
with insects like you.

Even your wife knew you were meaningless.

I'm gonna like you a lot better
with your mouth broken.

All right, everybody. Come on.
Keep moving forward.

Keep moving forward, you'll
catch up with the next group.

All right? Let's go.

Everything's gonna be fine.

All right, Julia... how many we got left?

Only a few... I'm sending them down now.

Where's Julia?

She left to help a friend.

Where is she right now?

I don't know...
she's not answering her walkie.



Are you okay?

Jim killed Andrea, he's behind me.

- Junior.
- Go without me.

- No, no. I'm not gonna let you go alone.
- I said... go!

Put your arm around me.

What are you doing, son?

I'm not your son anymore.

I'm not gonna let you hurt anyone else.

How you gonna do that?

You're not leaving this town.

You don't tell me what to do.

Not you.

Not the dome.

This is my town, little boy.

Enjoy what's left of it.

God. You made it.

What happened?

- Jim.
- Where is he?

Barbie, there's no time.

Junior's taking care of it.

Jim's not getting down here.

All right. I'll take her.

Let's go.

Can you take Aidan up ahead?

You just go on, all right?
I'll be right behind you.

- Okay.
- Come on.

Hunter, go up front with Joe and
Norrie. Tell them to move out.

- All right?
- Okay.

We'll catch up.

Nice and slow.


All right.

You're gonna have to jump.

Think you can do it?

Yeah, I can make it.

I'll get across and I'll give you a hand.

All right. Come on.

- Step up, give me your hand.
- Okay.

I can't make it.

No, there's got to be another way.
I'm not leaving you here.

You don't have a choice.

The town needs your help, and fast...
before the tunnels cave in on them.

The dome chose you.

Barbie, listen to me.

Pauline had a vision

of someone guiding everyone
out of the dome.

She didn't see his face, but it's you.

But everything we've done for
this town, we've done together.

It's okay.
The dome has gotten us this far.

I have faith...

that if you do what it's asking...

it will protect me.

I'm coming back for you.

I know.


Junior, you can't leave me!


Barbie, where's Julia?

She's coming. She sent me up ahead.

Why's everybody stopped?

Nobody knows which way to go.

Barbie, we need to go this way.

We saw the butterfly go down there.

I think it's a sign.

Both Joe and I do.

All right, this is the way.


Everybody follow me.

What happened?

Barbie went ahead,
he'll come back for us.

Then we'll figure out a way across.

No, this can't be all that's there.

- It can't be.
- Is this a cave in?

Barbie, what do we do now?

I don't... I don't know.

We didn't come all this way
for a dead end.

Screw you!

Can you hear me?!

Whoever you are controlling all of this,

can you just talk to us
and tell us what's going on?!

How did you...?

I have no idea.

What's that noise?


Follow me.

We're going home.
