Did You Know?


If a sphere shrinks, it becomes smaller in all dimensions: length, width, and height. So as the Dome pulls away from the earth around it, it should also settle deeper into its own hole. Thus the ground level outside the Dome should appear higher than the ground level inside, contrary to what's shown in the episode. (Conceivably, the outside should also be experiencing vulcanism as the Dome slowly opens up a hole into the Earth's crust....) See more »


Rebecca Pine: I just can't give up like you and Julia.
Sam Verdreaux: It's not giving up. It's letting go. There's a difference.
Rebecca Pine: Which is?
Sam Verdreaux: Knowing there are things you don't know and still being OK with it.

It did it again. Another major cliffhanger!
15 September 2014 | by lucashammarSee all my reviews

Of all the times the series has mind-blown me, this episode takes the price. I don't know how the final episode of this season will end but I'm sure it will be another major plot-twist. Even if it is starting to get annoying with all these cliffhangers, I still love when bad crazy things happens all the time in the end and you have to wait until the next episode to get the answer. The cliffhangers are so intense that I really can't wait another weak to find out the big surprise. But I guess it could be disappointing too if the whole season ends with a cliffhanger and you have to wait until the next season (if it will ever be any). The last cliffhanger from the last episode of season 1 was horrible, and if this season has another one for us, it better be good!

Damn, the dome really like to toy with everyone in Chester's Mill...
