Now the mini-dome is shrieking again, and Linda yells for them to make it stop. Norrie says they don’t know how, and Joe is all, "We kinda do, remember?" and then Joe and Norrie spend five minutes casting suspicious looks at each other and are basically, "Oh, yeah! We just have to touch it, that’s the ticket." Then Stupid Linda, for some reason, can’t tell that they’re acting super-shifty, and she asserts that it’s police property so if anyone’s going to touch it, it’s going to be her. She takes off her gun and radio, cautiously approaches the dome, and does what every person does when they’re touching something unfamiliar for the first time: She closes her eyes and puts her entire palm on it. Naturally, it zaps her across the room, knocking her against a wall, and she collapses, unconscious.
Over at the clinic, Angie helps Julia walk down the hall, while the two of them argue about whether they should go after the egg or Barbie first. Angie votes "egg" because if Linda takes the mini-dome and it ends up in the wrong hands. Wait, Angie wasn’t there when Linda showed up, was she? God, this show. Anyway, Julia’s counter-argument is that this might be their only shot to save Barbie’s life, and after a moment, Angie agrees.
Back in That Idiot Ben’s bedroom, Carolyn checks for Linda’s pulse and says she’ll be fine, and I’m no doctor, but I know that "has a pulse" is not necessarily the same as "not going to die." "It was the only way!" says Joe. Then Junior rushes in and has a tantrum and is all "screw Angie" because Angie helped Julia escape "police custody." Ben pops his head in and says, "It’s Big Jim! He’s almost here," whatever that’s supposed to mean, like maybe Ben checked his Marauder’s Map or something. Norrie and Joe appeal to Junior, asking him if he wants his dad to lock the mini-dome up before they can get answers from it. Junior hesitates, and then agrees to come with them.
Then we see Angie and Julia stroll into the town hall. Angie is unnecessarily saying that "everyone must be out dealing with the blackout," as though town hall is normally a hive of activity when we see it. Julia heads to the cells while Angie goes to get the keys, because who doesn’t know where a sheriff keeps the keys to the jail?
The real reason for them to separate is so Julia and Barbie can have a little time to themselves to reunite, with Barbie amazed that Julia’s still standing. Even the characters themselves are pointing out plot holes now. Barbie forgets to add that Julia has the best hair of a bedridden gunshot victim ever. Then they kiss through the bars, until Angie rushes in and tells the lovebirds "that’s enough" because "it’s go time."
