Under the Dome 3×11 ‘Love Is A Battlefield’: Karaoke time with Joe and the Amethyst

I have “Love is a Battlefield” stuck in my head now, thank you very much. Oh and that ending scarred me a little bit, and Marg Helgenberger’s dulcet tones did not help that any. Again, those were the two scenes that seem to have an impact last night, and that makes me kind of upset.

So did that scene with Junior and Jim, and I guess the “let’s kill them all” plan Hector has. That’s kind of upsetting. I don’t know. I’m just not feeling the suspense I felt at the beginning of the season, and that might be because it’s getting a tad predictable.

We already knew that Christine was going to do anything for that child, so it really was no shock that Eva got killed off even before we saw that all her kinship infection was gone. Hell, I won’t even be surprised if Christine tries to kill off the (probably) quickly growing child queen just to give her a new cycle.

Or the resistance will get the new queen to suck the infection out of everyone else with love or whatever. There’s probably going to be a showdown with Barbie and his baby. That’s just gotta happen.

Don’t even get me started on Junior and those restraints. I do like that Jim’s heart softened a teensy bit, but that was a dumb move.

I mean, I know it’s not all extremely predictable because there is still the question as to why the aliens ran from their mother planet, and why they’re trying to protect the earth from some larger scarier aliens. That’s a little scary and confusing.

We also don’t know what’s going to happen when the Dome comes down. What do we call the show then? The show literally can’t exist if the Dome comes down. It’s like a really awful paradox where these people can’t have freedom if the story wants to keep going.

If the Dome does come down it really puts future seasons into question. Yeah, that other alien threat may be a storyline saved for next summer, but I don’t know. I think if it goes any longer into the heavy science fiction route it’s been in, it’s going to lose its core audience. You never know though. I thought last season would be the end, and that this season would be absolute crap, but it did surprise me, and it better keep surprising me because, joking aside, I do like a lot of the characters on the show and the directions they’re going in.

I just hope next week plays up these really unpredictable elements of the show instead of showing how creepy and dutiful the Kinship and how evil Christine is because it’s just getting tiring.

All in all the show was a little slow again this week, but it did bring some hope for the last two episodes of the season.
