Barbie's captors take him to a room, tie him to a chair, and remove his hood. The interrogator tells him that he's safe as long as he talks, and explains that they're not the police or the military. He demands to know why Barbie went to the Dome, but Barbie refuses to explain. The interrogator knows who Barbie is, and demands to know how he got out of Chester's Mill. He repeats Barbie's words to Julia not to jump, and Barbie asks what he's done to help anybody trapped inside of the Dome. When the interrogator says that they plan to have Julia hand over "the power source," Barbie knows what he's talking about and says that they're never going to get it. The interrogator punches him and walks out...

Episode Quotes
Pauline: Why red? Why a door?
Lyle: You know, in the Old Testament, the Israelites would paint their doors red with the blood of the lamb as a symbol of sacrifice so the Angel of Vengeance would pass them by.
Sam: Oh, you're just full of happy stories, aren't you?

Barbie: It's not really a fair fight.
Interrogator: Yeah. Those are overrated.

Big Jim: I thought you could locate this thing, you know? Build a... egg detector or something, you know? As a scientist. Figure it out.
Rebecca: I think there's a way to find it that's more reliable than copper wire and duct tape.

Big Jim: Come on. You know me well enough by now to tell when I'm lying.
Julia: Because the exception is so rare.

Sam: Weird coincidence, don't you think? The way back to Chester's Mill being on your family's property.
Lyle: If you still believe in coincidence, you're not paying attention.

Hunter May: I can't believe I made it through. Now I'm really here in Chester's Mill.
Sam: Buckle up, kid. It's about to get a lot weirder.

Cultural References
Hunter: Personally, I'm thinking the storage space but if we're really digging into the space-time of it all, the colonial's got that whole Narnia spin.

Narnia is the fictional magical kingdom and country found in the works of C.S. Lewis and his Chronicles of Narnia series.
