'Under the Dome' Finale Tweet-cap: The Monarch Is Revealed, But Fans Left Unsatisfied
After the episode "Curtains" aired, scores of fans took to Twitter to complain about the conclusion. Here's some of the fallout from social media, in case you missed it!
After weeks of speculation about who would be crowned "the monarch," the butterfly above the mini-Dome finally started flapping around. Almost instantly, the little Dome went black ...and then the big Dome followed suit.
If at the end of tonight's UNDER THE DOME, they find a mysterious hatch in the ground, I will not commit to watching season 2.— Howard Sherman (@HESherman) September 17, 2013
Meanwhile, Linda decided that nobody was allowed to touch the Dome except for her. It was great that she was trying to restore some order in the den of chaos that is Chester's Mill, but Linda forgot one very important fact. The Dome does not like to be touched.
#underthedome why did it get so dark hopefully that black stuff makes it disappear— i am other (@TgangP) September 17, 2013
Thank you dome for taking out Linda. If you could zap Julia and Junior out of existence, I will owe you. #UnderTheDome— Dahne (@dahne1) September 17, 2013
The episode saw the return of conscious Julia, who was badly injured a few episodes back. Some fans were happy to see her up and about. Other fans ... not so much.
"Maybe it's a coincidence" ARE YOU F'ING SERIOUS LINDA?! YOU ARE A POLICE OFFICER IT'S YOUR JOB TO INVESTIGATE THINGS!! #UnderTheDome— Kyle Trembley (@KyleLovesTV) September 17, 2013
So now Julia is just fine, after a doctor told them she might have permanent brain injury? #UnderTheDome— David (@dnp_david) September 17, 2013
The fabulous foursome all decided to put their hands on the darkened mini-Dome, and it burst into life. This stunned the butterfly, but not for long.
Julia has awfully good hair for someone recently shot and dying #UnderTheDome.— SHADOW PineValleyPod (@SHADOWUSR) September 17, 2013
I'm not the only one with the Reading Rainbow theme in my head, right? #UnderTheDome— amysusanne (@sabrinaobscura) September 17, 2013
The butterfly then landed on Barbie, prompting many fans to guess that Barbie was the long-awaited monarch. But moments later, Julia was the one who could quiet the egg. It was decided that she was the true monarch.

When Norrie asked the egg what it wanted from them, an apparition of her dead mother appeared. The apparition told her that the Dome was dropped over Chester's Mill to protect the town. The town had to protect the egg, or everyone would die.
Your the monarch, no you are the monarch, is anyone the monarch??? #underthedome— Trei (@trei1658) September 17, 2013
