Storyline

Norrie and Joe go to the dome to see if they can figure out what powers they might have over it. Joe wonders if the dome might have a nucleus at its center. It the very middle of the area covered by the dome, they make a discovery. Julia's next door neighbor Harriet is expecting a baby very soon but when she goes into premature labor, she thinks the dome may have done something to her baby. She had a vision of her absent husband just before labor began. A healthy baby is born but tragedy soon follows. Big Jim lays down the law with Junior as regards Angie and throws him out of the house. He also tries to re-establish his authority in the town after he learns that Ollie has taken over his propane supply. The police try to track down the Dundee brothers who killed Rose at the diner.

Poor writing/plotting
6 August 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

After the first amazing episode, the series quality declined. Some characters are (not) doing unexplainable things, and some episodes feel like 'fillers', meaning that at the end of it, we hardly know more about the actual Dome. But this episode takes it. Unlike what I said before, this episode doesn't feel like a filler. But the thing that frustrated me is that they finally - finally - decided to investigate the CENTER of the Dome. With 'they' I mean the two loving teenagers (because why would any adult be interested in unexplainable Dome??). The girl says to the boy 'you're smart' after he suggests about investigating the center. Well, if that is smart, than I (and undoubtedly many other viewers) are geniuses because I (we) came up with the same plan within the first 2 episodes.

'Delays' like these, accompanied with the fillers, are the definition of these series. It's an mechanism to milk out more episodes than it actually needs.

Another typical thing is that people went crazy within the first three episodes. But when we see a scene where a girl asks the boy if she could use his power generator to charge up her ipod, she receives a comment that 'it has only been 1,5 days'.

People go crazy within 48 hours because of a see-through Dome?

Don't get me wrong, I kinda like the series, but the writing (which is NOT on par with the book!) is just extremely poor. Either put the events in a different sequence (for example: start the riot when people KNOW that other people discover that there is NO off-switch of the Dome), or keep your focus on that which makes these series interesting to watch: the mystery of the dome.
