Big Jim reports to the police station as promised and convinces Linda that his stash of propane is what's saving everyone today. He tells her the biggest threat they face is from Barbie. After spending the night on the couch, Barbie tells Julia he didn't like it much and she admits she didn't much like sleeping alone either. She answers a knock at the door and comes face to face with Maxine who promptly shoots her in the chest. Barbie races to get her to the hospital. Back at the barn, Joe thinks the stars are about them but Junior runs off after failing to convince Angie they should be together. After the shooting and Junior running off, the weather turns nasty. After it clears, Joe and the others head off to the dome and see something they wish they hadn't. Written by garykmcd

When Angie, Joe, Junior, and Norrie approach the big dome and place their hands on it, we can clearly see a normal scene on the exterior of the dome. But in "Under the Dome" (2013) {Blue on Blue (#1.5)}, when the federal government tried to destroy the dome by setting off a nuclear bomb, everything in the general area of the dome was utterly destroyed.

A Good Episode
11 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By now those who read the book and have stayed the course are "over" the clumsy new characters and deviations from King's novel. It has taken some stamina since until the previous two episodes it was going down pretty much. Two episodes back things stabilized somewhat and the episodic stories themselves began to have some legs of their own. Knowing this is a practically a wholly different telling of the story and finally being able just to actually get into this version you might say, more or less, began to happen. Here we have the best episode since the first would be hard to argue.

What's becoming clear is there is some kind of wrong which the dome is like a gatekeeper of. What that wrong is isn't wholly clear, but it seems it is mainly to do with the corruption which was going on in Chester's Mill prior to the appearance of the dome. Many of the players in the corrupt business have slowly met their demise. The appearance of the mini-dome has ramped things up as the four who are connected somehow to the dome have realized that connection. It just may be that those who are still living who had roles in the crime conspiracy are being used like pawns to move toward some kind of critical outcome. It is hard to deny the people inside Chester's Mill on along for a ride of which they play a part, yet have few if any choices themselves.

This episode had excellent mystery and tension throughout. It also had no boring side stories of any character's lives past or present, thus the pace never lagged. Definitive action scenes were sprinkled in too keeping the viewer wondering and engaged. Scenes such as Max shooting Julia with Barbie having to save her. Jr. realizing he can walk away from the dome, but it won't let him. Big Jim making a very caustic temporary alliance with Barbee in order to take Max down. Max actually being shot and killed with Big Jim getting an outcome even better than he had hoped for in which he can vilify Barbie. Surpringly Dodee (sp?) discovers another revelation by intercepting military communiques where it appears the U.S. government has some plan to use Barbie. And, finally the four connected dome kids having a dome connected vision in which it appears the dome wants them to kill Big Jim. This episode started good and didn't let the viewer down as it packed quite a lot to process. It did so while keeping the aforementioned tension and mystery framed with some real action. The writers are on to something and one can only hope they keep building on this episode's excellence.
