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

Did You Know?


"The End of the World", the song played at the end of the episode, when everyone is taking shelter in the cement factory, protecting themselves from a bomb, is the same song from the Fallout soundtrack, a game about a post apocalyptic world, also hit by a bomb, where people live in shelters, similar to where the Chester Mills inhabitants are at the moment.

At the end when the Reverend is dead, his arm is laying across his chest, but in the following shot, as Big Jim walks away from him, his arm is by his side. See more »


Joe McAlister: Monarch butterflies aren't even in season. They shouldn't be anywhere near Chester's Mill this time of year.
Norrie Calvert-Hill: Maybe the dome sent them. Maybe it's trying to tell us that the dome's just a cocoon, and when it finally goes away, we'll all get to be something new.
Joe McAlister: You realize most caterpillars are actually eaten before they turn into butterflies?

The Mother of All Bombs
4 January 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Joe and Norrie find many butterflies covering part of the dome. The military bring family and friends from outside the dome to visit people in Chester Mill in a The Visitor's Day and Barbie finds it strange. Norrie learns that her father is alive. Big Jim Angie locked in the shelter but he does not release her; when he leaves the place, Reverend Lester visits him and tells that he is receiving the word MOAB from God. Then he preaches for the population and orders Big Jim to confess his sins. Barbie learns that the military intends to bomb the dome, and the Visitor's Day is not to say hello to the families but farewell. Now they intend to bring the residents to the Sanders' cement factory. Big Jim releases Angie and he tells her that they all are all going to die on that day. However the powerful bomb does not affect the dome.

"Blue on Blue" is an episode that shows how powerful the dome is. Big Jim is a dangerous man and Reverend Lester discovers it in the worst way. The rest is nothing but another chapter of a soap opera. My vote is seven.
