This old fart was UTD and survived the blast even though the outside didn't. ha ha

I wonder what's next. Saw the preacher death coming a long time ago.

They've already shown that water can penetrate the dome, so they should be able to grow crops to supplement their food supply. I wonder if the dome will create a greenhouse effect and keep them warm in winter?

Well, they've shown that water can penetrate the dome very slowly. Which jibes with the novel. Although next week's previews hinted that they would be doing more with the impermeability thing.

Then again, if the done is a little bit impermeable, shouldn't a little bit of the blast gone through? If it's, say, 1%, shouldn't 1% of the most powerful non-nuclear weapon have done some damage right around the interior?

I've always seen those under the dome, as actually the safest. I've figured the show was headed for some outside catastrophe, and the dome actually protects them.

Whats gonna suck, is being stuck inside they will have no way of getting information..

So, the dome is to protect some of humanity for future generations?

I think whatever the dome barrier is made of can be tuned. Crank 'er up to 10 and nothing gets through. Back it off to 2 or 3 to let oxygen and some water through. It seems in the pilot that touching the dome caused a minor shock. In the last episode, nothing like that, even the idiot deputy/sheriff was putting her lips against it.

In the first episode they said that you only feel the shock the first time you touch it. After that, nothing. Linda touched it before.

I remember that scene. Wonder why some of the blast didn't come through.
