Julia hears a TV broadcast and learns the military has set up a 10 mile quarantine zone around the dome. The residents of Chester's Mill receive visitors however - friends and family who can at least see them from the other side of the dome. Norrie has a surprise waiting for her. For others, the reunions are bittersweet. Barbie learns from one of the soldiers that the army is pulling out. Rev. Coggins thinks he's receiving messages from God but his hearing aid is playing a role. He keeps hearing the word MOAB which he thinks is a biblical reference. Barbie knows otherwise. Big Jim finds Angie in his old bomb shelter and frees her. Junior isn't finished with her yet. Written by garykmcd

Joe McAlister: Ben, were you at Visitors' Day?
Ben Drake: Yeah, but pretty much everyone I actually like is stuck in here with us, so I just talked to random strangers.
Norrie Calvert-Hill: About what?
Ben Drake: China threatened to attack us after the dome showed up?
Joe McAlister: Seriously?
Ben Drake: Yeah, this guy said Beijing thought we were testing some kind of illegal superweapon, so the president had to talk 'em off the ledge, tell them we didn't even build it.
Norrie Calvert-Hill: [Sarcastic] Great. Sounds like the grown-ups have it all under control.

So a town is isolated by a dome from an unknown source. Although the attempt to keep the element of mystery alive, I can't see this going into a Season 2. The story line reminds me of The TV series "Jericho" (isolation), but without a binding emotional connection like Jericho did. There's an obvious underlying tone of a town secret that has yet to be unveiled. I guess the disturbing storyline involves a young man and the girl that he "loves" and tries to protect. Oh, which reminds me, in the first episode there was such an unnecessary scene of the young couple having sex that was very obvious and left nothing to the imagination that had absolutely no bearing in their storyline. The show almost lost me at that point, but I held out hoping it would get better. So far.... Still disappointed. Sorry, but if this show doesn't get up & going soon, I won't be watching to the end.
