Under the Dome (2013–2015): Season 2, Episode 10 - The Fall - full transcript

Everyone is shocked by the return of Barbie, Sam and Pauline. Big Jim's shock at his wife's return goes from disbelief to anger when he realizes she faked her death. Melanie learns from Sam who her killer was. Sam also confesses to Pauline and Junior about Angie's murder. Julia is relieved by Barbie's return and he fills her in on what's happened to him. He suggests that they give the egg to his father in return for letting everyone leave Chester's Mills. Big Jim has his own plans however - one that leads to disaster.

A few weeks ago an invisible
crashed dome crashed down

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

Why the dome is here,
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.

Oh, Hunter May, meet my son Dale.

You're gonna get me to the dome.

The place where the National Guard

shoots trespassers on sight?

- Barbie!
- Don't jump!


Maybe the guys who took Barbie

are the same ones who want the egg.

How would they even know about it?

We'll protect it.

No better place to hide

than right under my dad's nose.

And you all think it powers the dome?

That's the-the working theory, right?


It's my job to lead the people

of this town to freedom.

Who are you?

She's a friend of mine... Pauline Verdreaux.

- Pauline Rennie?
- James' mother.

I think that door's the
way back into the dome.

I know where this is. Grew up there.

All right. Let's go, let's go.

What the hell?

We're back somehow.



It's me.

That's impossible. You...

What are you doing here?

Did the dome send you?

Like Linda and Dodee to torment me?


No, Jim.

It's really me.

No, no.

No. You died.

You died nine years ago.

I was never dead.

You drove your car into a tree.

I... I saw the wreck.

I read the report.

I picked out your casket.

I was never inside the car.

It was a cadaver.

Lester Coggins helped me. And Lyle, too.

He knew what to use to make the car burn

so that there would be nothing left.

It was the only way! The only way for what?

It was the only way to
get out of Chester's Mill!

I told you about my visions.

You saw my paintings.

I knew something terrible was coming.

So you ran away and left me and Junior?

To protect my family.

I thought the dome would follow me.

And you would never let me go!

You're gonna stand here

in your son's room and make excuses to me?

Stop it.

You destroyed him, Pauline.

- You destroyed your own son.
- Stop.

For all these years,

I thought it was my fault.



I came back.

Jim, I came back!



Look at this.

See anything strange?

Its leaves have turned.

Like it's fall.

Except it's summer.

The temperature's dropped
in the last two days.

This is an oak.

One of the first to change.

Any idea why this is happening?

Somehow the dome is
accelerating the seasons.

Normally, fall's my favorite.

Book by the fire,
nice glass of pinot, but...

this is just odd.

Oh, my God!



- You came back.
- I did.

I'm gonna get everybody out.

What happened?

How are you here?

Barbie, how the hell did you get back?

Let's do this inside.

It's freezing.

Since when did it become Alaska in here?

No kidding.

And, uh...

Melanie's not here.

Junior either.

We have the whole place to ourselves.

Better keep each other warm.

Wait. Melanie hasn't
been here in, like, a day.

She's probably at Julia's.

Or out doing Jane Fonda exercises,
whatever people did in the '80s.

Oh, come back.

Oh, my God, Joe. The egg is gone.


You think she took it?

The way she protects that thing,
I bet she did.

Come on, let's go find her.


Oh. Sorry.

I didn't mean to scare you.

It's okay.

I should go.

Julia might be worried.

I shouldn't have let us fall asleep.

If she's mad I didn't come home,
I'll just blame it on you.

Tell her you locked me up down here.


I-I was just kidding.


you're sure the egg's safe down here?

Uh, this place is built to
withstand nuclear bombs.

It's the safest place in town.


I guess I'll see you later.

Uh, yes. See you later.



Think about what you're doing.

With her down here?

It-it's not what you think.

You're gonna want to follow
your heart. Don't.

I-I don't know what you mean.


Did you say something?

So you jump off an underground cliff

and somehow land all the way in Zenith?

Where you wake up on a playground.

It surprised the hell out of me, too.

But the same thing happened to Sam

and Lyle.

And you feel okay? No physical injuries

or-or psychological disturbances?

The way there was a blur, but...

but I woke up, I was fine.

The way back...

I had this memory from a long time ago.


It was just something

from when I was a kid.

How'd the others fare?

Well, Lyle...

He didn't come up out of the
water with the rest of us.

Is he dead?

I don't know.

You know, maybe he came up first.

He drowned.

Or maybe he's trapped somewhere in between.

I don't know. What matters is

that we can use that cliff

to get everybody out of here.

But we need a plan.

Last thing we want is a stampede.

Let's start with the people we trust.

I will walkie Tom and Andrea.

Have them meet us at the
Sweetbriar in an hour.

All right.

There's finally a way out.

And I don't know if we should take it.



How are you alive?

I survived the fall.

Listen, I'm not back to hurt anyone.

Especially you.

You killed me...

I didn't push you into the
crater that night.

So, it was Lyle?


I helped bury you.

We all did. And then we ran.

And I've regretted it every day since.

Imagine if you'd trusted me,
and protected the egg.

Maybe none of this would've happened.

Maybe the dome
wouldn't have come down.

Maybe no one would've died.


I am so sorry... Melanie.

For everything..

I have a lot of unfinished business.

And I figured this might be my only chance.

You never know how many
chances you're gonna get.

Jim, what are you doing?

I was just thinking.

About us.

I thought maybe I'd find Junior out here.

It's exactly as it was the day I left.

It was my way of keeping you alive.

I used to come out here and...

stare at these and try to figure out

what made you so...



Where were you, Pauline?

How did you get inside the dome?

Through a cellar door on Barbie's
family property in Zenith.

Barbie? You saw Dale Barbara in Zenith?

Fate, I guess. He came back with me.

And Sam. And a former student of mine.

And Lyle.

Except Lyle didn't make it.

I'm sorry to hear that.

But why would you want... to come here?

For Junior.

And you.

I shouldn't have run like that.

Whatever my reasons, I was wrong.

No, you weren't.

You were right.

About the pink stars falling,
about the dome,

about everything. All of it.

I wasn't a good man back then. I know that.

I didn't listen, I kept pushing you away.

But the dome has shown
me things, a new way to be.

And now it's brought you back to me.

Pauline, I can...
I can prove to you that I've changed.

Jim, I-I don't know.

You loved me once before, didn't you?

Yes. Very much.

Well, then we can be a family again.

I'm gonna lead everyone out of here.

And when it's over,
when you and me and Junior are out...

we'll be together.

I have always believed that
the dome is here to protect us.

What if it still is?

Maybe it started out that way, okay?

But there's barely any food left.

You got no medical supplies.

Now, all of a sudden,
it's getting colder by the hour.

I realize that.

But Lyle didn't make it.

I mean, if these people die getting out,
that's on us.

we stay here, we die here.

And what's waiting in Zenith?

The playground is under surveillance.

You were interrogated, beaten.

That's because they wanted the egg.

"Let's give it to 'em."

My dad sent that video, right?

He's behind this whole thing.

So my thinking is,
if we give him what he wants,

maybe they leave us alone.

So... we leverage the egg.

I go first and I tell them that it's theirs,

so long as they let the whole town through.

You come last with the egg.

I have to go first.

No. No, you're not, no.

There's no way I'm letting you do that...

What would've happened
if you hadn't escaped?

It'll be worse if they capture you again.

I should go.

Julia, they're not gonna go easy on you.

I can handle it.

And if you don't get a message

agreeing to the deal, you'll be here.

- Mm-mm.
- These people are gonna need you.

No. If I don't get a message
agreeing to the deal...

I come after you.


Where were you?

I was...

You're back!


It's good to see you.


Where's the egg?


gone from Angie's apartment.

But... but Barbie's here.

Why do you want it?

Because it's our way out.


I'm sorry, Julia, but...

I, I can't tell you where it is.


Can I talk to you for a second?

All four hands should have a
say in where the egg is kept

and Melanie's probably sitting on
it in a nest she built somewhere.

- So we'll find it and we'll take it back.
- How?

Well, Julia and Dodee built that yogi thing.

It's a piece of crap.

Yeah, so we'll build a better one.

Who the hell are you?

Hey. I'm Hunter.

And you're Joe McAlister, Vlog Master,

and @neithernorrie, slaying the world

a hundred and forty characters at a time.

Okay. How do you know who we are?

Especially since you've, apparently,
just popped up out of the ether.

You guys are celebrities online.

I just came from Zenith with Barbie.

Barbie's back?

You came here on purpose?

I wasn't about to turn down the
chance to check out the dome.

It was a...

watery arrival... but my phone survived...

obviously there's no service,

but that is my site's homepage.

- Hounds of Diana. You e-mailed me.
- Uh-huh.

And direct tweeted me.



What are you doing here
with all of this stuff?

Uh... desperately trying
to, uh, establish contact

with the outside world, but... no luck.

Want help tracking down that egg?

Are you a mind reader?

No. You guys were loud
coming down that hallway.

What do you know about the egg?

I... work for Barbie's dad at Aktaion.

That egg's been the
subject of many of a meeting.

I'd say our best best's
a sound wave detector.

All energy sources emit a frequency,
even if we can't hear it.

That could work.

Do you think we could get
our hands on a radar gun?

Oh, the police station has to have one.

Well, you guys know if there's
anything to eat around there?

Because all I brought was this?

I call dibs. Food from the outside?


What did it feel like when
the bomb hit this thing?

I'll tell you after you tell us how you got in here.

No. I can't tell you where the egg is.

But ev-ev...

even if it's our ticket out of here?


You know, I've seen that necklace before.

Yeah. You found it where they buried me.

Let me ask you...

Have you ever been to, uh...

a big white house in Zenith?

There's a b-big lawn...



there's a root cellar.

With a red door.

With a red door, yeah.

Yeah, and my mom brought me there once.

I-I spent the afternoon playing
with this little boy;

he was so sweet.

We painted that door red

and he-he put his hand on it.

Yeah. That-that was me, Melanie.

That was me... I was that boy.

Uh... but... uh... how do you know?!

I know, because I remember.

I, I was there, I remember.

We were, we were playing

and then you-you had to leave in a hurry...

Yeah. My mom was so upset, she...

That-that-that-that boy's dad...

um... your... your dad, he kept saying,

"Laura, Laura. I'm so sorry."

Oh, my God.


My parents...

used to fight about a woman named Laura,

because I guess my dad was
in-in-involved with her

in a relationship before
he married my mother.

Your dad and my mom?

Yeah. They had...

they had a daughter together.


Are you saying that...?

I'm saying...

that you are my sister, Melanie.

That's why she brought me there.

To meet you before we moved.

She never would tell me who my father was.

It's why you looked so familiar.

Yeah. And that's... that's
why I had this memory

on the way back into the dome.

This wasn't a coincidence;
there's a reason for this.

What's the reason?

You and I are supposed to
lead people out of here,

into Zenith, but we need the egg to do that.

No. No.

No, I-I can't give it up.

I... I know something bad will happen

- if I don't protect it.
- Melanie,

I'm not gonna let anything
bad happen to you.

Just come to Sweetbriar Rose with us, okay?

Hear us out.


Junior's 18th birthday.

I've missed so much of my son's life.

Pauline, you're gonna be...
a part of everything

that has to do with this
family moving forward.


Oh, James.




How... how are you here right now?

It's a long story.

You can, um...

you can tell him over breakfast, then.

Where are you going?

I'm sheriff... I've got
responsibilities to the town.

I got to... talk to Barbie
about an exit strategy.

Be good to your mom, Junior.

Uh, d-do you want me to
get you something to eat?

- No, no, I'm... I'm okay.
- Come on, I'll make you something.

- What do you like?
- It's fine.

- Mom, Mom, stop, stop. Stop.
- Is there... You can have...

Lyle told me why you left.

You saw the video and you didn't tell Jim?

No. I didn't know how.

That's for the best.

Your father and I,
we're not good for each other.

He thinks we're a family again.

If that helps us get out, that's fine.

Everybody had their reasons for coming back.

You're mine.

Barbie's back. Who else?

Sam. Your uncle has a lot to atone for.

He can never do that for killing Angie.

He only did it because of
what I put in my journal.

You drew a picture!

He murdered a girl.

Where are you going?

To the station... I'm Dad's deputy.

Make it stop!

Make it stop.

You want everyone to jump off a cliff?

It's not as crazy as it sounds.

That cliff leads to the same place
it did for Barbie: our deaths.

It leads to Zenith.

I guarantee it.

Oh, I don't believe it.

Look, please, we need you guys on board

to help us get everyone out.

We'll use the census.

We divide the town into groups,
everyone gets a leader

and someone with first aid
experience and a mix of ages.

Chester's Mill is our home.

We're not forcing anyone to leave.

But staying's a really bad idea.

You feel how cold it is?

Our microclimate's disrupted.

With dwindling fuel and not enough food,
we have to get out while we can.

I'm not doing anything till I know
where Big Jim stands on this.

What about you, Tom?

Sign me up as a leader.

There's nothing left for us here.

So, assuming people do take a leap of faith

and jump off the cliff,
what happens when we get to Zenith?

Uh, the plan's for Julia to go first.

She's gonna lay out the terms.

Which are?

Safe passage for the entire town.

Once everyone else is out, Barbie

and Melanie will jump with what they want.

"They" being the soldiers in black.

And what they want...

is the egg.

And how do I fit into your little plan?

'Cause I'm a part of it.

Starting now.

Is this what you're looking for?

That's it.


Changed the firmware to
adjust the IF output.

Yep. The wave guide's modified,
enhancing the tonal range.

Uh, translation from geek, please?

We're making it pick up
high-pitched frequencies

instead of movement.

Oh. Of course.

By the way, once we get out?
Don't mention any of this

to my parole officer. She wouldn't approve.

Wait. You have a parole officer?

Repercussion of exploiting
the server vulnerabilities

of Fortune 500 companies.

Sounds awesome.

Nothing compared to finding out
what it's like under the dome.

Ironic. All we want to know

is what's happening outside of it.


Well, you want to do the honors?

It works. The egg is somewhere to the west.

Okay, so, what are we waiting for?

Let's go get that egg.

Actually, Hunter,
thanks for helping us build this thing.

But... that's as far as it goes.



It's just something Norrie
and I have to do alone.

Dude, it's no worries. I...

I actually want to go get
some pictures around town

for my Hounds of Diana Web site.

You don't trust him?

I-I-I trust us.

We're two of the four hands.

Not him.

You really think he'd
take the egg for himself?

And how would he know that
there's a locker at the school

that leads to a cliff that's
the way out of Chester's Mill

and we have to do is jump?

Maybe Barbie told him.

Anyway, we have a signal.

Let's find that egg.

So, what's the problem?

We give them the egg, we get our freedom.

We have to do this carefully, Jim.

Whoever's out there's not
gonna detain 2,000 people.

This is still America.

Oh, oh.

You mean the same people that
bombed this place, right?

You-you don't even know
what you're dealing with.

I know what's best for this town.

Which is why I'll be
going first to negotiate.

Excuse me?

I'm the sheriff.

I'm the only elected official here.

You're also a lifelong used car salesman.

That's right.

Which means I know how to cut a deal.

Love me or hate me, I get things done.

Your whole family's here now, right?

He goes first.

He goes first, they stay behind.

That way he's got every reason to make
sure that we all get through safely.


Fine. Go first.

But not until the entire
town has been informed

and the exit teams are in place.

I'll leave that in your hands.

Spread the word as fast as you can.

You heard it.

The whole plan depends on
taking the egg with us.

What do you say, Melanie?

Pauline, we're leaving! I worked it out.

You, me and Junior,
we're getting out of here.

We're gonna be free.

It's coming soon, soon. It's coming.

What are you...?

Oh, my God.

It's the end of everything, Jim.

I see it in my head.

That's you, me and Junior.

My head... make it stop!

Is this what's gonna happen next?

Is our family in danger?

Oh, it hurts. Make it stop.

Make what stop? My head.

- What's hurts? Make what stop?
- Make it stop.

- What are you talking about?
- The egg. It's screaming.

The egg? Well, where is it? What...?

Really? You can't hear that?

- I'm trying! I'm trying! I can't hear it...
- Oh, God!

You haven't changed. You don't believe me.

Just like always.

I have changed. I do believe you.

Everything you painted has came true.

I believe you, I just... I can't...

- Stop. Stop it.
- Babe, babe, babe, calm down.

- Stop it! Stop it!
- Calm down! Calm down! Calm down!

- Calm down!
- Get out of here!

Get out!

- Calm down...
- Get out!

I'm trying to help.

Get out! Aah!

Just calm down! I'll-I'll help you!

I'll-I'll get help, I promise.

Calm down! No, no, no, no, no!

No! Don't lock me in here, please!

Don't lock me in here!

I'm trying to keep you safe.

No! Don't lock me in here!

Listen, I'll get us out of here, I promise!

- I made a deal with a guy, okay?
- Jim, please!

Please! He's gonna take care of our family.

- I promise he'll get us out of here!
- No, no!

Trust me!

Just got to find that damn egg.

She was right about this, too.

You'll let me carry the egg over?

Yeah, I-I will be beside
you the entire time.

Do we really have to give it
to those people out there?

Once our dad sees you alive again,

that is all he's gonna care about.

Not some egg.

I need a minute.

Did you just make a promise you can't keep?

Right now, this is all riding on her

and Big Jim talking the talk.

- Oh, that actually worked out well.
- I know.

He doesn't mean anything to your dad.

And now neither one of us
has to risk being nabbed.


Are you having second thoughts?

Not about leaving.


About what?

We met because of the dome.

And we never really talked about you and me

out in the world.




I want you in my life

whether we end up in Zenith

or wherever.

That's a promise that I can keep.

- Good.
- Guys.

You want the egg or not?

- That's it.
- Let's get it and get the hell out.

Why is it screaming?

Something's scaring it.

It's not us. You calmed it down.

Now it's time to go.


The cliff under the school.

That thing's going to Zenith.

Barbie's back. There's no reason.

It's not a debate.

I don't have to do anything you say.

You're right.

You don't, I'm gonna shoot him.

Don't worry about me, Norrie.

All that matters is protecting the egg.

You wouldn't shoot Joe.

There's a long list of people
who've gone against me.

I got no problem adding Joe McAlister to it.

Let's go.

Pretty calm for a dead man.

I figured you'd stop by.

I hope it doesn't have to end this way.

Angie hoped it wouldn't end with you

swinging an axe down on her head.

I thought it would bring the dome down.

I would do anything to take it back.

You put her bracelet
under my bed so I'd think

I blacked out and killed her.

I'm sorry.

I didn't know what else to do.

Don't worry.

It'll be over soon.

Junior, I can't take back what I've done.

You still have a choice.

You're right.

Bullet's too quick.

You still have to suffer.

Get up.

Get up!

Hit me. Fight back.

Fight back.

Fight back!

Fight back!

I'm gonna do to you...

what you did to Angie.

Junior, stop!

Where is the signal?

Shut up.

Keep going.

All right, let's go.

Through the locker and
to the cliffs. Come on.

You can't kill him.

How can you come back and protect him?

Sam still has a part to play.

So does each of the hands.

If he dies, everyone under
the dome will suffer.

I loved you, and he took you away from me.

You never loved me.

You locked me up, wanting to keep me.

That's not love.

That is possession.

Why do something that can't be undone

to avenge a love that wasn't even real?

You're not real.

You're just the dome playing tricks on me.

Junior, I'm telling you not to do this.

Look at me.

Look at me.

Don't do it.

For me.

Look at me.

Look at me!


See, Angie?

I really did love you.

It's freaking out.
What are we supposed to do?

Do not throw the egg.

If that's the power source to the dome,

we could all die.

If I don't, he'll kill you.

That's enough talking.

That thing needs to go, now.

Look at it.

It doesn't want me to.

Well, maybe it doesn't want to be here.

This is about my family.

Now, you throw it over now.

What about the rest of us?

You've always said you love
everybody in Chester's Mill.

I do.

Then don't make us do this.

My wife is suffering.

And everybody's gonna get out, too, okay?

But that egg needs to go now.


Okay, no one's dying.

Everything's okay.


Run. Run!

It was right here, it was right here!

Okay, we gotta go!

- Junior took it?
- I don't know!

Let's go! Okay, come on!




What's wrong with her?

I don't know. She's barely breathing.

Help me get her up.

Come on, help me!

Hey, I'm down here!

Come on!

Help me!


Junior, where's your uncle?

What happened?

I don't know! Where's Sam?


Put her down on the table.

Get my EMT bag from the kitchen.

She collapsed during the earthquake.

Her pulse is weak.

Shallow breathing...

We gotta get her heart rate up.

What happened to your face?

Don't worry about it.

Atropine! It's in the vial.

It's atropine.


How long before it works?

Did you take the egg?


Is it gone?

Maybe Joe and Norrie have it.

Oh, I just hope they're okay.

- We should go find them.
- Yeah.

Hey, stay with her.

And, Sam, don't let anything happen to her.

Her pulse is still weaker than it should be.

Right now, what she needs is rest.

The dome was right.

If I'd killed you earlier, she'd be dead.

Yeah, well, she still might be if I don't
find a way to keep her stable.

She's one of the hands. You better.

Is it safe?

Safer than staying down here.

Nice of Big Jim to wait.

Come on. Come on, I got you.

- Pull me up!
- Come on!

I got you!

Come on.

Come on.

You okay?

What the hell was that earthquake?

You don't want to know.

Let's get out of here in case
another one happens.

Yeah. Come on.

I thought you went to take photos.

I forgot my battery pack.

Good thing, huh?



Pauline, are you okay?

They're gone.

What's gone?

My visions.

The minute the earthquake hit, they stopped.

Well, let's go. Come on,
let's get out of here.

I don't know what's gonna happen now.

I do.

We go get Junior and we're the
first three over the cliffs.


I tell the guard on the other
side I gave him what he wanted.

The egg stopped screaming.

I know.

Because I threw it over
the cliff. To Zenith.

- No...
- I did it...

I did it for you. I did it...

No, Jim.


What have you done?

Joe and Norrie have to be here somewhere.

Barbie, Julia!

Big Jim made us throw the egg off the cliff.
