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.

2x10: The Fall recap: Big Jim enters Junior's room and stares at the wife he believed was dead. He insists that she can't be alive, and wonders if the Dome is sending him a vision. Pauline assures him that she's real and Lester and Lyle helped her put a cadaver in her wrecked car and then set it on fire to cover the evidence. She tells Big Jim that it was the only way she could get out of Chester's Mill and protect her family. Big Jim refuses to let her make excuses for what she did and says that she destroyed her son. Pauline says that she came back but Big Jim walks out in disgust... read more.

2x9: The Red Door recap: 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... read more.

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. As she goes through Pauline's journal, Julia insists that Sam was crazy and his death wasn't Barbie's fault. Barbie tells her to get some sleep and says that they'll have to break the news to Junior and Joe in the morning... read more.

2x6: In the Dark recap: Junior shines a light down into the tunnel behind Melanie's locker and then carefully climbs down. Rebecca and Sam train their flashlights on him so that he can make his way, and Junior finds the school basement. There are footprints leading into a tunnel and Rebecca suggests that they bring in Barbie. Junior insists on going after Angie's killer but Sam goes with him and climbs down... read more.
