    Barbie was trying to collect from him, they struggled, the gun went off.

    They showed it later, in a flashback.

    And if the writers (sic) hold true to their path, we never really will.

    I would drop this SP, but I'm holding out for a musical episode and then maybe a tie in with either Ice Road Truckers or WWE Friday Night Smackdown.

    She was his girlfriend before he went crazy. They both thought they were going to die. I don't think it was unreasonable.

    The Rev was crazy, and a threat. Killing him was arguably a rational act.

    It's quite a large volume of air. All it needs for wind is for one area to be a little hotter than another, which can happen due to differences in albedo, etc.

    Did you know, rain clouds can form inside of places like NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building and the Facebook data center? The Chester's Mill dome is much bigger than that.

    Nukes would produce radiation, and it probably would get through the dome, still (I'd bet) leaving it intact, while poisoning the life inside. Meanwhile, it would contaminate the surrounding area in a semi-permanent way, and the fallout could spread even further on the wind. That's probably a bridge too far for the feds, even as implausibly trigger-happy as they've been so far.

    I was surprised at Barbie et al. just assuming that the MOAB would break the dome, knowing as little about the dome's properties as they do. Of course, they don't know they're on a TV show, so they didn't know it would fail the way the viewers did. But they should've been less certain.

    Maybe the effect doesn't occur on the outside? Or, the outsiders just haven't run into it yet? (God knows they weren't listening to anything the insiders could've told them about it, for whatever unexplained reason.)

    on the off chance someone inside the dome survives and eventually gets out, wouldn't the military consider warning the citizens to back away from the bomb's point of impact, to say, just suppose, lower the number of any potential casualties? what's the point of getting inside if you're making decisions that could kill everyone who's trapped? at what point did the government declare war on the town?

    if i were inside, and the military was bombing my town without provocation or any warning, that'd probably be at the top of a list of things i'd want to address with an attorney as soon as i got out. but that's just me.

    this show might have one more episode left before the sp goes the way of the clear button.

    Seriously, how does something like this even get into the story? Of all the improbable things that have happened so far, this is the least probable of them all. That's especially so if we are to believe it's only been a few days.

    They (Barbie, I think?) stated in the show that the goal was to destroy the dome, not to get in. The reason was that it's generating weird, strong magnetic fields, and the feds "won't stand for that". (Why? I dunno.) Not very well justified, IMHO, but anyway.

    The product placement in this episode was Smallville-level bad. At least that show was more grounded in reality.

    I'm not going to buy a hearing aid!

    Speaking of which, I'm glad the Rev got dispatched. He was annoying.

    Another peeve for me was them making MOAB into a missile. It is a gravity bomb, but that wouldn't be as spectacular since it has no flame trail as it is about to hit.

    I don't have as clever an answer as the "major suckage" comment, but according to http://www.cleveland.com/tv-blog/index.ssf/2013/07/stephen_kings_under_the_dome_posts_the_rules.html, here are the "rules" for the dome:

    * You experience a shock the first time you touch the DOME, but after that you will not.

    * Warning: Those pacemakers or other battery-operated equipment should never touch the DOME!

    * The DOME is semi-permeable. Trace amounts of water can pass through both ways.

    * The DOME produces its own micro-climate.

    * Clouds can gather inside the DOME.

    * There will be wind inside the DOME.

    * Climate change on Earth is NOT affecting the DOME.

    * No phone calls can be made inside the DOME.

    * There is no wi-fi inside the DOME.

    * There are no TV signals inside the DOME.

    I remember her from The Secret Circle. It was a short lived series about witches on the CW. Although I couldn't place her until I looked at your IMDB link and saw what she had starred in.

    Until they show he really didn't, which I'm 100% certain is coming right after he hooks up with reporter lady, provided this lump of doodoo isn't canceled

    A bit off topic, but maybe someone here knows. My local affiliate was promoting that night's news with something along the lines of "Stephen King has a new book he does not want you to read". Any idea what they were talking about? I'd guess it was typical 11 o'clock news hype that had nothing to do with the actual story.

    Stephen King has a new novel, Joyland, and made some comments about it not being available as an ebook. The news story is probably about that.

    If wifi and television don't work inside the dome, how does the local radio station and the police radio work?
