Under the Dome

Under the Dome

Chester's Mill is a place like any other. At least, it used to be. Until we were cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious dome. Invisible, indestructible, inescapable. We don't know where it came from or why it's here, but now that we're all trapped under the dome together, none of our secrets are safe.

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a woman’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, and people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet with a mysterious past, is trapped in Chester's Mill and finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper editor Julia Shumway, physician’s assistant Angie McAlister, her brother Joe. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.

2x8: Awakening recap: Big Jim goes to the closet in his office and looks at the sheriff's uniform, and then puts on a gun and badge. He drives to Rebecca's house as she comes out on the porch, and hands her a walkie-talkie. Rebecca reminds him that he broke into her house and Big Jim says that he gets overzealous and apologizes. Seemingly satisfied, Rebecca reminds him that the previous sheriffs haven't been treated well by the Dome. Big Jim figures that the Dome has something else in mind for him, gives her a radio, and heads back to his car. Rebecca hesitantly thanks him as he goes... read more.

2x7: Going Home recap: Barbie wakes up in Julia's bed, startled, and explains that he was dreaming about Sam jumping off the cliff.

2x4: Revelation recap: At his office, Big Jim is going through the census forms they collected when Rebecca arrives. She reminds him that they need to keep healthy people with practical skills. Big Jim looks at the form on Alice, Harriet's daughter and the first Dome baby. All Harriet does is teach Sunday School and Rebecca warns that they can't let emotions dictate their decisions. He reminds her that he grew up with these people and he's not going to kill anyone until he's absolutely sure that it's necessary. Rebecca wonders how he'll be sure and he suggests that the Dome might guide him. As he puts the forms back, Rebecca secretly pockets his security badge and says that she's going to the school to supervise the windmill project. She assures Big Jim that they'll get through it as long as he's leading them and leaves... read more.
