The episode received negative reviews by critics. Matt Fowler of IGN gave the episode a negative review. With a horrid episode filled with utter nonsense and awful dialogue. Like we were watching a parody of an action/adventure series from SNL or some other late night comedy show." Scott Von Doviak of The A. V. Club wrote "Many questions raised over the past three seasons still remained to be answered in this final hour, but let’s face it: most of them were stupid and long-forgotten.

The only real question left was whether Under The Dome could deliver one last head-scratching episode chock-full of ridiculousness. On that score,'The Enemy Within' delivered the goods."Jonathon Dornbush of Entertainment Weekly gave the episode a negative review, saying "For a show that winked at the screen every other scene, Under the Dome didn’t end in such a ridiculous fashion. All things considered, the last moments of'The Enemy Within', are unpredictably… simple, maybe a little expected." Tim Surrette of TV.com gave the episode a negative review as well, saying the finale didn't answer the questions. "We never learned where the dome came from aside from some glowing egg. We never found out. We don't know why they needed to live on Earth. We don't know why Chester's Mill was chosen, we don't know if there were more aliens coming. We just know that there was a dome that randomly popped up in a Stephen King-ian town in the Northeast."

Acadia-Coronation

Acadia-Coronation is a former Alberta provincial electoral district. On October 30, 1957, a stand-alone plebiscite was held province wide in all 50 of the current provincial electoral districts in Alberta; the government decided to consult Alberta voters to decide on liquor sales and mixed drinking after a divisive debate in the Legislature. The plebiscite was intended to deal with the growing demand for reforming antiquated liquor control laws; the plebiscite was conducted in two parts. Question A asked in all districts, asked the voters if the sale of liquor should be expanded in Alberta, while Question B asked in a handful of districts within the corporate limits of Calgary and Edmonton asked if men and woman were allowed to drink together in establishments. Province wide Question A of the plebiscite passed in 33 of the 50 districts while Question B passed in all five districts. Acadia-Coronation voted in favour of the proposal; the district recorded one of the best turnouts in the province going well about the province wide 46% average.

Official district returns were released to the public on December 31, 1957. The Social Credit government in power at the time did not considered the results binding; however the results of the vote led the government to repeal all existing liquor legislation and introduce an new Liquor Act. Municipal districts lying inside electoral districts that voted against the Plebiscite were designated Local Option Zones by the Alberta Liquor Control Board and considered effective dry zones, business owners that wanted a license had to petition for a binding municipal plebiscite in order to be granted a license; the Legislative Assembly of Alberta

1936 United States House of Representatives elections

The 1936 United States House of Representatives elections was an election for the United States House of Representatives in 1936 which coincided with President Franklin D. Roosevelt's landslide re-election. Roosevelt's Democratic Party gained twelve more net seats from the Republican Party, bringing them above a three-fourths majority; this was the largest majority since Reconstruction. The last time a party won so decisively was in 1866. Significant representation from the Progressives of Wisconsin and Farmer–Labor Party of Minnesota is seen, as these two liberal populist groups gained a foothold; the 1936 elections showed the continuing trust for the American people in that Roosevelt would guide the nation from depression. Despite setbacks, the people had faith in the New Deal and elected leaders who supported its measures; this was the last of four straight election losses for Republicans due to the lingering effects of the Depression. Source: Election Statistics – Office of the Clerk In the 1st district, Republican Arthur B. Jenks was declared the winner, sat in the House from January 1937 to June 1938, but Democrat Alphonse Roy contested the election and served the remainder of the term before losing the 1938 election to Jenks.
