    I agree that this is probably the last season but it could get interesting the way the story line is developing

    We now know that Acteon was after the eggs for an energy source but they definitely have more involvement as they have a way in and out of the dome. One of their agents (Christine) has become 'possessed' by the alien intelligence and can control most of the town people. This could go somewhere interesting

    Ha .. that's novel. :lol:

    Yeah, this episode is actually the first one that I couldn't watch all of it. Lots of fast forwarding.
    I am looking forward to the new story arc, though. This one ran really dry. I'd rather they do less episodes than add extra drivel.

    I noticed that in one scene this week a person guarding a prisoner was reading a Stephen King book.

    Probably the best part of the episode. :(

    At least we got to see the creation of the dome and mini-dome in the latest episode.

    They seem to have been working toward that. Soon the suffering (of watching the show) will be over.

    (PS: I have been one of those suffering through it each week.)

    I haven't watched this season, though it's on my DVR. I may just delete it and if I feel like watching it, go through Amazon.

    This season took a sharp left turn... I think it's still worth watching though.

    Been suffering... but haven't watched the last 6 weeks. I had made the decision that IF it got cancelled I would catch up and watch... but if it got renewed for another season, I would bail and delete the unwatched ones.

    So... the news of cancellation oddly has mixed feelings for me as now I feel compelled to watch!

    These SciFi cancellations has me unsubscribing from several threads across a few forums as it seems these shows are getting mo' posts now then when they were running.

    Probably why they are being cancelled. Not enough interest when they are alive. But it is good to see a proper sendoff.

    Show ended a bit oddly, but it's done. That's several hours I'll never get back.

    I wonder if the writers knew that episode would be the series finale. My reaction at the end was pretty much who cares. This series really ran out of steam pretty fast and ending it is a mercy killing for all concerned. I'm sorry I hung in there till the end.

    The door is open for a sequel series. The resistance is in place and a problem still exists for them to fight.

    Given funding there could be a "hunt for Dawn" show on cable.

    If you followed the news, the show's creators, producers, director's and cast didn't get the word that it wouldn't be renewed until the summer production was almost done. So if it appears that last show/finale was a bit rushed, that's why. Of course they left the door open for a follow on if a cable/sat company or Netflix wants it.

    But it needed to end. Now we get to deal with Whispers and Extant next year for more of the Alien invasion stories.

    I regret the time I spent on this show.
    I knew better, but I stuck with it.

    It never made me happy to watch it.
    But I did not read the book and I thought there was a twist coming.

    I stopped watching the series, but it deviated quite heavily from the book.
