Julia awakens from her coma and insists that she and Angie free Barbie before they worry about the mini-dome and the black egg. Joe, Norrie and Junior watch the butterfly come out of the chrysalis but it appears trapped in the mini dome. As it flies around, the mini dome blackens as does the big dome, plunging Chester's Mills into darkness. Julia, Barbie and Angie catch up with them and find the mini dome disintegrated. The butterfly is alive however and the monarch is identified. While the monarch races to protect the egg, Barbie is recaptured and led to the gallows. Written by garykmcd

The Season Is Over and Is Enough for Me
22 January 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The mini-dome opens and the butterfly shows that the Monarch is Julia. Meanwhile the dome darkens and then a being using the form of Alice appears and explains that the dome exists to protect them. Big Jim demands the egg to save Barbie, but Julia prefers to keep the egg safe. Big Jim and Junior takes Barbie to the gallows.

"Curtains" is the thirteenth and last episode of "Under the Dome". Fortunately the Season is over and it is enough for me. There is no story for another season and the soap opera will continue. Maybe I will watch the episode 2.01 to see the fate of Barbie. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Cortinas" ("Curtains")
