Under the Dome (2013–2015): Season 3, Episode 11 - Love Is a Battlefield - full transcript

Barbie risks everything in an attempt to free Eva from The Kinship, Big Jim and Julia are enlisted by Hektor to test a possible cure for infected townspeople. Joe chooses to work with Christine after she shares some shocking information about the Dome.

BIG JIM: Four weeks ago, an invisible dome crashed down
on Chester's Mill, cutting us off from the rest of the world.
The dome has tested our limits,
forcing each of us to confront our own personal demons--
My God.
(people exclaiming)
Now, in order to survive,
we must battle our most dangerous adversary...
the enemy within.
You saved me from becoming one of them.
I knew the real you was still in there.
The dome's surface is calcifying,
unless I can bring down the dome with Joe's help.
I have to stay and build this device.
It's the only way out of here.
CHRISTINE: Everything has a cycle,
and mine is coming to an end.
Who the hell are you?! Hektor Martin.
He runs Aktaion.
I'm gonna do whatever it takes
to make sure that this dome never comes down.
You're a threat to Eva's baby, Julia.
You sure no one saw us, right?
I don't think so.
Easy, bro.
What the hell were you thinking, sneaking off like that?
You're not my dad. I can do what I want.
Oh, sass? Now we get sass?
Look, your actions affect all of us.
You could've led those freaks straight here to us.
Which she didn't, okay?
She saved my life, so take it easy.
We've got bigger problems, anyway.
Oh, you mean Barbie?
Did his little side piece, uh, lure him back to alien town?
No, but their baby is gonna be here sooner than we thought.
Norrie and I just saw her.
She looks almost full-term.
And I'm pretty sure 12 girls just died
to make it the world's shortest pregnancy.
Well, then, we got to kill her.
We got to put her down before that thing comes out.
Why is that your solution to everything?
Killing the problem.
I'm sure you like stepping on spiders too.
Well, if the spider has a queen baby inside
that's gonna wipe out the entire human race,
that kind of spider, yeah, I think I'd kill it.
This cure of yours, you really think it'll work?
You said you didn't need it.
I believe you said love was the answer.
And now I'm admitting that might not be enough.
Glad to hear it.
Dr. Bloom has already synthesized a base formula.
All we need now is a specimen
of Christine Price's DNA.
You'll need a test subject to try it on, right?
I can be your lab monkey.
Well, that's very generous of you...
but it's necessary to have a subject
in whom the infection is full-blown.
NORRIE: I have a question.
Joe, he's working on this thing to bring the dome down--
what if he finishes it before you can get this cure to work?
What if they get out?
Well, then we have a bunch of creepy-crawlies,
that can have babies in three days,
going forth and prospering.
That's not gonna happen.
I told you I'd get you Christine Price's DNA--
I'll get it.
Christine was at the barn with Eva.
Better to go there than Town Hall-- I'll go with you.
Jim. Yeah.
It's our last chance.
All right, nice and easy.
Lay down, rest.
Are you ready?
For what?
The new queen.
Of course.
Get some sleep.
¶ ¶
You all right?
I just stood up too fast.
How is Joe's work progressing?
He was initially resistant, but he's come around.
He moved into a larger room, and he's made a few breakthroughs.
But... he's still in the planning stage.
We're running out of time.
The dome is dying.
If we don't get out before it does...
I can make him work faster.
No violence.
He's too valuable.
I'll handle him.
Have you seen Junior? I haven't.
But anything you need, I can take care of.
Joe will need our last remaining amethyst to continue his work.
I'll find a way to get it up to him safely.
You've come a long way, Sam.
I'm pleased.
Barbie, how's Eva?
She's resting, comfortably.
The baby should be here within the day.
I'd like to go after what's left of the Resistance.
No need.
Our primary concerns, right now, are here, under this roof:
the birth of the new queen and the building of the device.
They still pose a threat.
Are you worried about your daughter, Barbie?
Only the kinship.
Inside Eva is the queen
who will lead our kinship out of the dome.
Nothing is more important than that.
Your priority is to be by Eva's side until that baby is born.
I understand.
There's aliens outside the dome now, too.
Not aliens, plural, like the James Cameron sequel;
alien, singular, like the Ridley Scott original.
Pretty sure this is an isolated incident.
I don't even know
what I'm looking at here.
That's Lily's dad, or what used to be.
Okay. And...?
She doesn't know; she thinks he's dead, but he's not--
he's in some Aktaion containment unit in Zenith.
Well, does that Hektor guy know?
He's got to, right?
I-I mean, he's the one who told Lily to destroy these files.
We should tell her. Wait, wait.
Just telling her out of the blue, it could mess her up.
And Hektor...
maybe he's got a reason for keeping this on the down low.
You're defending him?
No, I'm just saying
maybe we run it by Julia before we do anything.
Are you okay?
Yeah. Why?
I don't know, what Julia said before, that you saved her.
What happened out there?
Nothing, I'm fine.
(recorded whistling)
JOE: Hey, there you are.
Check this out.
Okay, so you know the whistling the town's been doing?
The amethyst responds to it.
That's great, Joe. The strange thing is:
it only actually responds when you're whistling to it.
Look, look.
Okay, it lights up, yeah?
Okay, now watch. (clears throat)
(recorded whistling)
It doesn't respond to a recording.
Okay, that's-that's fascinating. But how does it know that?
I mean, it's got to detect a... Okay, Joe, Joe.
Slow down.
I need to know how soon until this thing is working.
I don't know, I-I have a couple big problems to figure out.
Uh, a day or two?
I need you to stall.
No, I-I thought the dome needed to come down
before we choked to death.
It-it does, but the Resistance is working on a cure.
So we have to see if it'll work before your device does.
Otherwise we unleash the kinship on the rest of the world.
I'll-I'll try my best.
What are you gonna do?
I'm gonna try and save Eva.
The Eva I used to know.
Barbie, be careful.
These aliens, you got 'em tricked for now,
but at some point, they'll find out you're you.
JULIA: I got a sample of Christine's hair.
BIG JIM: Good.
So the last time you saw Barbie was here at the barn,
he was walking away with Miss, uh,
Barefoot and Ready-to-Pop? Mm-hmm.
You sure he's still playing for the home team?
Look, the only reason that he's with her now
is 'cause he cares about what happens to his baby.
Oh, I see.
Just yesterday, you were all, "Love conquers all."
And now you're, like, "Rah, rah, cure"?
There's more to it than that.
Barbie says the dome is calcifying.
Pretty soon, there won't be any air to breathe.
Does Hektor know about this?
I don't think so. Well...
if we're all gonna suffocate, what's the point of a cure?
If the cure works,
and Joe figures out how to take down the dome,
maybe we can all get out of here the same way we came in.
BIG JIM: Oh, human, you mean?
Kill them.
Hey, don't shoot!
Stop! Don't shoot my son!
I think we just found our test subject.
LILY: How long will it take for the cure to be ready?
BLOOM: Not long at all, providing you stop hovering
and let me extract the DNA from this hair.
That too tight for you?
Wait, scratch that.
I don't care.
You will later.
We're gonna fix you, kid.
I've already been fixed.
In the cocoons.
They made me better.
No, they didn't.
They... they made you into something I don't recognize.
'Cause you're too shortsighted to comprehend it.
All I am
is what the kinship needs me to be,
what this world needs me to be.
Junior, that sounds like...
helter skelter to me.
(wry laugh)
You don't know what's coming.
You better hope this cure doesn't work.
Because when the dome comes down,
you'll need the kinship to survive.
Survive what?
NORRIE: Can I show you something?
this is important.
¶ We're wrong ¶
¶ Searching our hearts ¶
¶ For so long ¶
¶ Both of us knowing... ¶
Enjoying yourself?
Yeah, uh,
it was all there was to listen to.
Listening to music
instead of working on our special little project?
Um... (clears throat)
Uh, I was thinking,
(sighs) I'm not like one of your drones.
I can't just work until I drop.
Sometimes I got to stop thinking in order to think.
I-I hit a problem.
The original plan
was to have the amethyst conduct the tones into the egg,
which would act as a key,
signaling the dome to unlock.
Of course, that requires seven amethysts and the egg,
both of which Big Jim destroyed.
So we don't have enough amethysts,
and we don't have a way to transmit a signal to the dome?
Those are some big problems.
Come on, Joe...
I know you better than that.
I know you find the problem exciting.
First things first.
We need to split the amethyst into seven pieces.
I have no idea.
Come with me.
There's something you need to see.
How are you?
I'm tired.
And weak.
How are you feeling?
I just told you I was tired.
No, I mean about the girls in the barn...
and the sacrifice that they made.
They did their duty.
Just like I'm doing mine, being a vessel for the new queen.
You remember how badly you wanted to have a baby?
How affected you were
when you found out you weren't pregnant?
I remember.
But that Eva's gone.
It doesn't matter what I want.
All that matters is what's best for the group.
This isn't our child.
This child belongs to the kinship.
JULIA: This was Patrick four days ago?
HUNTER: According to the time stamp, yeah.
So he's lying.
(door opens)
It's ready to go.
You are not using this.
What's going on here?
I was about to ask the same thing.
What aren't you telling us about Patrick Walters?
About my father?
He's still alive.
That's not possible.
He's dead.
You told me he's dead.
He's not dead, sweetheart,
but he is gone.
What does that even mean?
JULIA: I think you should have Hunter
show you the video.
I'd like to know what video you're referring to.
I'm sure you would, but I'm asking the questions now.
So before you stick this in Junior,
why don't you tell us what really happened
to your good friend Patrick.
The only reason I kept Patrick's condition a secret
was for Lily's sake. I didn't want to hurt her.
He turned into something else, something other.
A kind of energy infused
with consciousness,
but it wasn't his.
It was their consciousness.
All right, so your main man Marston,
he was working on a cure to save your friend...
but it didn't work?
Well, so who's to say this stuff
won't do the same thing to my son?
I'll be honest, Jim...
it could.
But I believe it will work.
The advances we've made since Patrick was lost,
the opportunities we had to derive
a pure strain from Christine,
this is the best shot at treatment
that we've ever had.
We have the briefest of windows to save this town.
Like you said, Julia,
to get the infection out of Hunter, Norrie, Barbie--
if the cure succeeds--
out of my friend as well.
It's up to you, Jim.
He's your son, not mine.
It could kill him.
There's a risk, of course.
But if we don't try...
Do it.
JOE: Where are we going?
(sighs) If this is about the dome calcifying,
I already know.
I need your cooperation.
Seems to me you've only asked for my submission.
Oh, I see.
You still think we want to be here.
That we wanted to travel hundreds of thousands
of light-years through a cold, harsh vacuum,
that we wanted to leave our home,
our history behind.
Earth is a wonderful place,
but it's not that great.
Why are you here?
Because we had no choice.
And now, neither do you.
Right now,
somewhere, up in the sky,
they're coming.
Listen to me, Joe.
Listen very carefully.
They destroyed our world,
and they'll destroy yours.
This isn't just about the survival of the kinship.
It's about humanity's survival, too.
Whether you want to recognize it or not,
our fates are tied together.
And the only way we stand a chance
is for us to get out of this dome.
That rests entirely in your hands.
LILY: My poor father.
I failed him.
I never should've given up.
No, Lily,
this is not your fault.
Okay? This one's on Hektor.
He's been like a second father to me.
How am I supposed to trust him now?
Look, I don't know him,
and I'm not usually the type to make excuses
for corporate billionaire overlords,
but maybe he had good intentions.
I'm just saying Hektor can't be all bad.
He came in here
to help us, right?
Get us secure and get this dome down.
Right, Lily?
Of course.
Of course that's what he's doing.
I'm sorry, I just need time to process all this.
(machine beeping)
Come on, kiddo.
You got to fight through it.
This cure of yours is burning him up.
Be patient, Jim; it's a good sign.
BIG JIM: 106-degree fever is a good sign?
What, do you think brain damage is a good thing, too?
The fact that he's running a high fever means
that his body is responding properly to the virus.
Just... just give it time, okay?
Excuse me.
I don't know what to do.
I was just trying to protect you.
From my father? Not from him.
From what he became.
I don't want your memory of Patrick
to be corrupted.
That wasn't your decision to make.
I know it wasn't,
and I'm sorry.
I just thought if I could find a cure,
I could return him whole to you, the man you knew.
Everything that I've done since it happened
has been toward that end.
I didn't tell you he was alive
because I didn't want to give you false hope.
I've got to ask:
How did they get the video?
I sent the files through.
I told you to destroy them.
I know.
The reason why the government wants us dead
is in those files.
If the truth got out about what's really under this dome,
there'd be a situation that they couldn't control.
Easier to bury the evidence and hide the bodies.
That's why we can't ever leave, Lily.
No. This information about my father,
it changes everything.
Especially if the cure works.
Lily... Shut up
and listen to me.
Say it works,
and you save all these people.
And say what Jim told you is true,
that there is a way out of the dome.
You could walk out of here a hero.
The government couldn't touch you.
And those files?
Just an insurance policy.
I need to see my father again.
You owe that to me.
All right, Lily.
If the cure works, I'll... I'll get us out.
What's wrong? You in pain?
No. No pain at all.
Good. Here you go.
Eva... what is it?
Talk to me.
It's just...
all of this is
happening so fast.
I'm not sure I'm ready.
I mean, what if I let the kinship-- or you-- down?
Why would you think that?
there is nothing you can't tell me.
My earliest memory--
I couldn't have been more than four--
is of blood.
A drop of blood on a shattered piece
of my mother's family china.
She'd thrown it at my dad.
I don't even know what they were arguing about...
but I'll never forget that drop of blood.
A broken piece of him on a broken piece of her.
Not long after that,
my parents and I, we spent a summer
in a mountain cabin
outside of Salt Lake City.
And it was just the three of us,
and the woods
and the birds...
And... and...
that was the happiest time of my life.
And then we came back to the real world.
My parents were divorced within a year.
I don't want that for our baby.
I want the cabin.
And I want the three of us to be together forever.
You can have that, Eva.
What are you talking about?
I am talking about getting out of here.
About running away.
I-I don't know how...
we'll figure that out.
But just you and me, our baby...
I knew it.
I knew you weren't one of us.
Julia is still alive, isn't she?
I bet she's...
What did you put in the tea?
I had to, Eva.
I'm not gonna let you hurt my baby.
Have you made up your mind?
Are you going to help us take down the dome?
I don't really have a choice, do I?
Neither of us do.
The real trick'll be doing the calculations necessary
to split the amethyst into seven pieces.
Are you okay?
In truth...
I'm dying.
My cycle's coming to an end.
Just as it must.
My work is almost done.
As soon as the dome comes down...
Well, I'll work as fast as I can.
(monitor beeping)
BIG JIM: How's it looking?
BLOOM: Promising.
Very promising.
Dad... Where are we?
You're in a safe place.
How you feel?
Like I'm on fire.
But... I'm awake.
What do you remember?
All of it.
Thanks for not giving up on me.
You went through the wringer, kid.
A lot tougher than I gave you credit for.
I'm gonna promise you something right now.
When this dome comes down--
and it will come down--
everything's gonna be different.
You and me,
we're gonna start over, just the two of us.
Maybe we can work together at the lot.
"Rennie and Son."
How does that sound?
Sounds good.
Except for the used cars part.
Does it have to be used cars?
it can be whatever you like.
Important thing...
is that it's you and me.
These, uh... these restraints too tight?
No. That's okay.
I get why they're there.
All right.
I'll see if I can, uh, wrangle up some pop.
Wanted to give this back.
I was wondering where that went.
Nah, keep it.
I got plenty.
Something else?
What did it feel like...
when you first killed somebody?
It gets easier the more you do it.
As far as I recall, I never bagged anyone
who didn't bear some responsibility
for the getting killed part.
Why? You feeling guilty?
Well, that's the thing.
I don't.
I don't feel anything at all.
¶ We are young ¶
¶ Heartache to heartache ¶ It helps me think.
¶ We stand ¶
(over headphones): ¶ No promises, no demands... ¶
Of course Junior's not here
when all the heavy lifting needs to be done.
I haven't seen him all day.
Me, neither.
Not since last night.
Last night?
Look, I've probably said too much already,
especially considering Junior outranks me.
I do, too.
So what were you doing last night?
Junior doesn't trust Barbie,
so we went to Peter Shumway's cabin.
(knocking on door)
(door opens)
SAM: I'm sorry to disturb you,
but... we have a problem.
You there?
Hey, I'm here.
Hey, I've got Eva.
I couldn't save her.
I tried to, but...
but it didn't work.
What are you gonna do now?
I'm going to stay with her till she gives birth.
I couldn't save Eva,
but at least I can save my child.
Come meet us. We're at the...
(quietly): No, no, no, no.
(static crackles)
Don't. He's not one of them.
And what if he is?
He might be trying to get you
to reveal our location.
Are you there?
Yeah, I think she's going into labor.
The motel.
Meet me there.
All right. Hurry!
They won't give that baby up without a fight. Tell
me you've located Barbie and Eva.
They're nowhere to be found.
And the car's missing, as well.
Organize the town. Everyone.
Fan out and find them. Now!
JOE: That should be it.
You want me to drill these?
Four inches deep.
Was something unclear?
No, it's just...
this is our last amethyst.
If you're wrong...
I'm not.
Start drilling.
(drill whirring)
Take me back.
No. Lay down.
You're not going anywhere.
(Eva groans)
Sit on up.
I knew she wasn't dead, you coward!
Anybody follow you?
No, but it'll only be a matter of time before they find us.
We just have to hope that baby comes first.
I'm gonna say something you don't want to hear.
We should leave.
No, Julia. No way.
I know this is hard.
But the kinship's not gonna stop
until they have their queen.
That baby is half mine.
As long as there's even a chance that she is more me than them,
I'm not gonna abandon her.
I can't. (Eva groaning)
Well, we're about to find out if you're right.
(cries out, sobs)
Hey, uh...
sorry for barking at you before.
No need apologize.
I can't imagine what it's like
watching your child go through that.
Yeah, anyway,
I... I wanted to thank you
for giving me back my son.
(chuckles) Well...
don't thank me yet.
Why? It worked.
He's himself again.
I actually was gonna ask you if we could
lose the restraints.
the signs look good.
But we have to continue monitoring him
for the time being.
All right.
When will the cure be ready for the rest of the town?
When I say it's ready.
The baby should've been here by now.
I don't know.
I don't know why...
You hoping you can hold off until Christine finds you?
Get away from me, bitch.
I can't believe I'm gonna do this.
I'm helping you deliver your baby with another woman.
I know. Eva, you need to push.
Push now!
BARBIE: All right.
Okay, keep going.
(groans, panting)
Damn it. The baby!
Here it comes.
Okay, okay.
Okay, okay...
(blade clicks)
(crying) (slicing)
(baby crying)
I know, I know.
Hey. Hey.
Hi, it's Daddy.
JOE: One last step.
You sure this is going to work?
Only one way to find out.
Here you go.
Oh, this is ridiculous.
It's okay.
No, it's not. It's not okay.
You do not need to be tied up like an animal.
Thanks, Dad.
But you shouldn't have done that.
That's cute.
Too tight for you?
Wait, scratch that.
I don't care.
(neck cracks)
It's time to go.
Let me hold her.
look at me.
If you're gonna take her away from me forever,
let me hold her.
Just once.
She needs to be fed.
Please, Dale.
It's up to you.
Barbie, we've got company.
Get the baby.
Give her to me now.
She's not yours.
She is my queen.
Barbie! Barbie...
Oh, my God.
You okay? Can you get up?
(grunts) Come on. Come on.
We gotta go.
I'm not leaving my daughter.
Whatever that thing is, it is not your daughter!
Barbie, if we stay here,
we die.
JULIA: Come on.
So much for your miracle cure.
Whatever's inside him is mutating too quickly
to target and eliminate.
It's like...
it's smarter than the treatment.
And I know this can work, given the time, I...
Except we're out of time.
Listen to me, Jim.
We don't have a choice.
We have to kill them all.
Everyone that's carrying the infection.
Including the dormant ones:
Hunter, Norrie, Joe,
Barbie, everyone.
It's the only way to make sure
that the Life Force never gets outside of this dome.
Are you all right with that?
What is it, Lily?
Give us some privacy.
I'm so proud of you.
Look at what a good job you've done.
She's taking what she needs.
What's happening?
Where am I?
Is that my baby?
What are you doing with my baby?
She's not your baby.
And you're no longer one of us.
