Joe and the other townspeople go to the dome to see that it still exists despite the military bomb. Big Jim orders everyone back, reminding them of what happened to Duke. Carolyn and Alice arrive as Linda pulls up and asks Big Jim if he knows where Junior is. She tells him that Carter found Coggins' body and Big Jim feigns shock at the news. Ollie and Andrea wonder how much longer their food and power will last, and Big Jim tries to calm them down. Meanwhile, Carolyn and Alice leave, taking Joe and Norrie with them, and Julia asks Barbie what they're going to do...

Episode Quotes
Barbie: You really believe that? No need for alarm?
Linda: Rule number one of law enforcement: you always believe in the goodness of people you serve. That's what Duke taught me on the first day of the job.
Barbie: And if they prove you wrong?
Linda: Rule number two... you do what you got to do.
