They didn't do a backup final episode just in case? Bah.

The marketing department blew it. Should have went with this. Ratings gold.

An excerpt from the press release:


"CBS promises that "many questions about its origin and power will be answered, as two groups of residents engage in one final conflict that some won’t survive." Earlier this month, CBS confirmed the finale was written as a potential ending to the series."

It will probably be a weak and/or lame ending!

Well, nothing could really be lamer than the book ending. So that means there is something for you guys to look forward to. Maybe the ending will actually improve on the book!

I think one way to end it would be that the aliens that Christine is warning them that they need the Kindred to fight are the Espheni. So, the dome comes down and it just rolls into the beginning of Falling Skies.

They didn't know; they're just trying to put some positive spin on the season finale and the plots it closes in the hope that people will ignore the new plots it opens and leaves unresolved. They were waiting to see if the ratings warranted yet another season, and they didn't, so we'll never get to see the alien invasion planned for season 4. (Now, now, don't lose too much sleep over it! That deep sense of relief loss that you feel will abate with time. )

I agree. The ending to Stephen King's novel, Under the Dome, was weak. Fortunately, much of his work since has been a whole lot better. Just finished a terrific sequel to Mr. Mercedes (2014), Finders Keepers (2015), which was terrific. That said, Under the Dome was a masterpiece compared to the silly TV series.

CBS should take all of Tim's TV.com reviews and compile them into a guidebook to include with the season 1-3 DVD/Blu-ray box set. It would almost be worth rewatching the silliness if you could conveniently enjoy his running commentary as you went along (almost!).

The Dome wanted it to end... the bad news is this means my excuse to stop watching went away and now I feel compelled to watch the DVRed episodes from the last 6 weeks... I was so hoping it would be renewed so I could delete them!

Me do not have signature.
Where I am when I'm not here!

Clearly the Dome wanted you to watch, so it forced your hand by not coming back.

I gave up on The Dome after unsuccessfully trying to get through the terrible first episode this season.
That being said.. I haven't missed it, but... I will watch the finale'. Hopefully there will be some closure for us lost souls?

I am really glad it is ending. I have watched it from the beginning and it has gotten worse season after season. I only watch it because I have so much time invested that I have to see the end. I sure hopr "Zoo" does not get renewed.

After slumming in the Dome for 3 seasons, he'd probably do it for free. No, he'd pay them for a chance to play Hank again.

Talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous.

I think being one of the lead actors on UtD appealed to him...with Breaking Bad he was always more of a Supporting character...I remember reading an article where he asked Vince Gilligan to write him out of Breaking Bad during the early years because he wanted a bigger role

No! I want Dean Norris to be cast in a role where he is continually demeaned and pushed around. He has to do his penance.
