It’s another episode of Under the Dome, the series that proves to us, week by week, that there is no god – because any merciful and/or wrathful deity would have wiped us all out long before now.
So war has been declared, Barbie is leading his merry pod-people to kill the rest of the Resistance (and, while they’re evil, their goals including killing Julia and Jim so they can’t be all bad). But they don’t know where the Resistance is hiding in a funeral home. Barbie has the house they were staying in burned down in a tantrum – and Christine seems quite panicky that her enemies didn’t stand still to be killed. In between her tantrum she also collapses in pain, clutching her stomach. Eva ruses in confused at the strange star mark on Christine’s stomach – but Christine is far more excited that her amethyst has declared that Eva is pregnant.
Apparently she’s carrying the new Queen. Eva tells Barbie who is all thrilled and shiny about it. Christine has also ensured there are guards to protect her – which, of course, makes Barbie all the more gung-ho.
Christine is having to adjust her plans – including now needing Joe alive. Sam has also vanished but Christine’s main concern is the Dome. She has Junior take her there where the dome is calcifying, meaning it will no longer let in air (I wonder if the plant life within would be sufficient for oxygen?) which will kill everyone unless she can get Joe to bring it down (yes Joes is involved for reasons.) This is, of course, all due to the broken amethysts and the Dome not having enough power – the same thing that is causing Christine to be faint and weak.
Until she has sex with Junior. Sex hormones helps heal aliens, apparently – though she does point out she is dying still and Junior totally needs to have sex with many people. I’d ask why but, really, this show is past why now.
So it’s time to pick out women for Junior – but in doing so Christine earmarks 12 girls that she needs for undefined purposes. Sadly unsurprisingly, the one time Junior has ever argued with Christine is in claiming one girl he is determined will be his.
Christine picks out one girl, Harriet, to be Eva’s midwife (no, Eva does not get a say). She’s also sending Eva off with said midwife, bulldozing over Eva’s objections.
