Under the Dome 3×07 ‘Ejecta’: The last place on earth

Screenshot (20)

…Where you’d want a group of people to keep the human species alive. Did you see the drones toss themselves out a window because Christine got a boo-boo? You really want them to be the only people left on earth? Hell, even before the infection a citizen would die like every week. Humanity is definitely not going to last too long in those hands.

Especially since a civil war seems to be on the horizon, and I couldn’t be more pumped! Not only did Indy show up and Hunter’s a sweet nerd again, Julia has a purpose and now the dream team is twice as big, and twice as badass.

The only thing that could ruin my happiness is Barbie going over to the dark side while letting a bunch of people die.

Oh.

You know what? I don’t care how deep you are under the infection, screw you Barbie! I was rooting for you! We were all rooting for you! How dare you! Don’t do this to me!…I mean don’t do this to Julia!…And me!

Ugh, I can’t even tell you how much my heart hurt. And it’s not like Barbie has always been a good guy. I mean he killed his ex-girlfriend’s husband like episode one, but he has been one of the best when it came to the safety of others. He freakin loves helping people when they need it most, and it just killed me to watch him literally turn his back on humanity.

Yeah, I know junior did the same thing pretty much, but he seemed a little more self-absorbed from the get go, so it wasn’t an entire shock that he went dark.

What does the end mean for all of them now? Is the whole world truly over? Not according to that call at the end. It seems as if some people are still alive, but at what cost? If everything’s obliterated outside the only safe place to stay is under the Dome (ha ha) with those hive dwelling aliens who already went through an apocalypse.

It’s fine and dandy that the Dome saved everyone, but these people have no free will except for those select few. And it seems if they get rid of Christine or those crystals, the whole Dome will collapse onto a wasteland.

There seems to be no good options, but of course our heroes are as persistent and crazy (especially Jim) as ever. They’re willing to face an apocalypse as long as they have free will over their minds. God love ‘em.

I don’t know if I’m just in shock, but this show is going above and beyond to make up for last season, and it’s obviously insane, but I love it. For once, it’s scary and worrisome, and all those things that make my heart hurt while I’m watching it. For once, there are actual stakes and they are as high as possible.

All in all, I’m enthralled with this ridiculously unrealistic story line, and I can’t wait to see how it pans out.
