Under The Dome Season Finale Preview: The End Is Near

First and foremost, if you missed all or part of Monday night's Under the Dome episode because CBS' schedule was shifted around, you can watch it on (opens in new tab) or wait until Friday when it'll be available on Amazon Prime (opens in new tab). Everything beyond this point contains spoilers from "Exigent Circumstances" as we anticipate the season finale of Under the Dome. Here's the preview video for "Curtains," the Season 1 finale of UTD.

As expected, it seems everything is coming to a head in Chester's Mill and the dome. The preview begins with the image of four hands on a very dark looking mini dome. Big dome seems to be following suit as people look upward to see a dark cloud coating either the inside or the outside of dome, blocking the sky from view and putting the small town in darkness. It's no wonder we see people flocking to church, believing the end is near. Meanwhile, Junior's demanding answers from the dome, and it looks like Barbie's being sentenced to death by hanging.

Presumably, he's been found guilty. By who? Was there a jury? Or did Big JIm just decide Dale's guilty and sentence him? All hope may not be lost, as the promo teases a potential rescue effort on the part of Angie and Julia:

Fire hydrant.

But did the above scene take place before or after Barbie's standing by the noose? It could very well be before, unless Barbie was transported elsewhere after sentencing for some reason.

Meanwhile, there's something set to go down in the woods. Check out these photos from the episode:

And here's a shot of Junior driving Joe and Norrie somewhere. Is he going somewhere with them, or forcing them to go somewhere? It's really hard to keep track of which side Junior's working on.

And here it looks like maybe Linda and Big Jim found Junior's mother's paintings?


Here's the official episode description for "Curtains," which teases "a shocking visit from a familiar face." Dodee back from the dead? Maybe not, but wouldn't that be fun?

“Curtains” – Secrets of the Dome are revealed and Big Jim is determined to put an end to Barbie once and for all. Meanwhile, Junior, Angie, Joe and Norrie discover who the Monarch is after receiving a shocking visit from a familiar face, on the first season finale cliffhanger of UNDER THE DOME, Monday, Sept. 16 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
