    Don't get me started on that one.

    Her little brother is the kid that was trying to map out the perimeter. Their parent(s) went to some other town for something or other before the dome appeared.

    Who's outside the dome to write messages to? I'm assuming that the military isn't letting anybody - family, news media, etc., near it.
    All we've been shown are armed guards. And a couple scientists (or were they military, too?) squirting it with a hose. And they pointed out this episode that the guards are ignoring them.

    I thought the scene with the water hose was weird... the kid didn't bother to show the guys on the outside his wet hand, and the guys on the outside took no notice of the the kid holding up his hand to feel the water.

    Yes. Big Jim throws the reverend up against the wall and says "You're high as a kite. You're using our product."


    I don't know why people are debating the fact that the dome comes down from above. If it just appeared or came up from the ground, it wouldn't have been first visible above the cows and there wouldn't have been a big thud as it hit the ground and threw up a cloud of dust. If that's not enough the metal roof of the barn that was sliced wouldn't be bent down toward the dome on each side.

    I thought he was asking how long it would be before someone reports her missing? not about who her relatives are.

    I'd say that considering that she works at the diner and at the hospital, someone would notice her absence real soon, but Junior could make something up to explain where she is.

    I wouldn't expect that when Barbie Had a phone conversation before he ran off the road where he sounded mad and said something about the buyer showed up and tried hard to renegotiate the deal.

    I thought he was just a city/town council member. I seem to recall hearing him refer to himself as one. Though I suppose, he could be both and I just missed that he is also the mayor.

    He is a council member but with every other elected official out of town, I'm guessing he's the acting mayor.

    He said in E1 that he's running for mayor and was even doing a little campaigning and in E2 that he is the only council member left.

    CBS has been very coy about not saying it's a mini-series, and even the creator/showrunners have said
    they have a potential way to keep the show going after 1 season

    I considered (but dismissed) the possibility that we were seeing that moment from his warped POV; in other words, that she wasn't really egging him on like that, he was just perceiving that she was. But I don't think this show is quite that creative. It's more a what-you-see-is-what-you-get.

    Im not the spoiler police, but if I was catching up on Breaking Bad and read your comment, I'd not be too happy - it implies that Hank has in fact caught on to Heisenberg, which is a BB spoiler in a non-BB thread.

    Anybody else roll their eyes when Barbie told hot redhead that he found his dog tags right where he left them on the bathroom mirror (or wherever he said). He had the whole town and the woods to choose from but that brainiac picked the one place she would have noticed.

    I think I sprained my eyes from rolling them so much. Fun show, but the stupid abounds.

    I was disappointed that the show's effect team had a perfect chance to wow us with the appearance of smoke trapped in the dome (house fire) and they didn't show it. The OTD folks spraying water on the dome made no sense as without the kid touching that spot from the inside they'd have no way of knowing if it worked or not.

    PS - you use propane to make Meth. They must have been mass producing and selling it to get money for the town.

    I wish someone would tell them that having that generator inside the back room of the bar/restaurant is probably not a great idea for their long term health.

    It's a good thing for Joe (the smart kid) that the liquid being sprayed on the dome by the guys in protective suits was water. He could easily have wound up with a palm of hydrochloric acid or something if they were trying corrosive agents on the dome.

    Agree that it was a stupid move for Barbie to say dog tags were on mirror. Of course she would have seen them, had they been there. I guess they are setting him up for when somebody starts figuring him out.

    Also agree that the Junior plot with the girl locked up is pretty bad but I see it as a way to have a nemesis for Barbie and that's about it.

    I did not realize that the propane thing was about manufacturing drugs. I'm still trying to figure this out (NOT having read the book) and figured it was just about them knowing something about the dome ahead of time and just bogarting a bunch of fuel.

    I also didn't even realize that the people on the outside couldn't see in. That makes some stuff make more sense now. d'oh! I re-watched E01 last night before watching E02 and that helped some (lot of stuff going on!). I found that I really missed some stuff (or forgot it) from having watched E01 last week.

    Knowing, going in, that the guy who plays Barbie is the same guy who plays the older brother on Bates Motel, I'm surprised that he really looks different. I'm having to work at not trying to 'see' him as the Bates Motel guy.

    Intentionally using stupidity to create drama like this drives me nuts. It is one of the main reasons I stop watching borderline interesting shows. I watched this entire episode without using the FF, but I'm not sure I can watch another entire episode. Rachelle Lefevre is hot though...

    As viewers, we have seen into the dome from outside. There's no reason to believe that the military and others can't see inside as well. It's much more likely that they are under orders to not interact. In episode one, we even
    saw people trying to talk to each other through the dome (before the military arrived)

    He looks really different because he didn't play the older brother on Bates Motel; he played Deputy Zack Shelby.
