    They can see in. Didn't barbie hold up a sign to somebody when it first appeared? Something along the lines of "Call the FAA" and the guy on the other side nodded?

    I also thought the female deputy and the husband saw each other.

    Of course they can see into the dome - it's clear.
    Earlier in the thread, in post #15, xuxa had a bad theory and it seems others have gone with it.

    Right, and it's not like she's been missing for multiple days. At most she's 24 hours missing, and her brother has been preoccupied (as has everyone else) with the dome.

    Yeah, I recognized him right away. What's kind of interesting is that the Barbie character is almost like a more mature version of the older brother on Bates Motel. Similar style, look, and attitude.

    I'd need a memory refresh. Did anyone other than Jr see her inside the dome after it came down? I'm sure they are assuming people they are not seeing are outside.

    Yes. If my memory is correct she met up with her brother at the house. That was when we learned their mom was outside the dome.

    Yes, she and her brother quickly ran into each other at their house after the dome came down. Plus she shared a smoke with Barbie outside the hospital, and presumably other people saw her while she was volunteering there.

    But the main thing is she's only been "missing" overnight at this point. Each ep is roughly a day (more or less), and the first ep covered a short period of the day before the dome came down, so there's only been one night since the dome went down. Her brother is preoccupied with his own investigation into the dome, Barbie doesn't even know her, and it would normally take an employer a couple of days before they would get concerned.

    Not so much a bad theory, just an example of how poor the writing and this adaptation is done

    I disagree, your leap to "they can't see in to it" came from way out in left field and went against what we'd seen in episode 1, it's not their fault you made that leap.

    The whole thing about the guys outside ignoring the people inside makes no sense at all to me.

    Suppose the guys on the outside are normal people with good intentions who have no idea what happened or why. Presumably they could hold up notes/an iPad and exchange vital information. Wouldn't they have a ton of questions? For starters, how many people are in there? Are you feeling OK? Is anything else weird going on in there? Is anyone sick or injured and needs to talk to a doctor? If they are trying to figure out what the dome is/how it works, wouldn't input from the people inside be useful? Like they could say "we are going to spray the outside with water; please tell us if it comes through to you" and they would gain a lot more information about their experiment.

    Even if the guys on the outside are bad guys, you'd think they'd want some information on what is happening inside. And if they are somehow responsible for the dome, you'd think they'd want information about how the experiment is working from the inside.

    I just don't see any reason they would just completely ignore the people inside. (Maybe it makes sense in the book or in spoilers, but I haven't read any of that and am just going on what's in the show.)

    And, of course, in this situation, it's likely that her employer wouldn't necessarily be concerned. It's probable that a lot of people would stop showing up for work in a situation like this—especially someone so young.

    Barbie made a comment that they were serious military guys who had probably been ordered to ignore the people inside, and they would follow those orders to the letter. Sort of like the guards at Buckingham Palace who are not allowed to talk to anyone. I assume after they've done some initial testing they will come to the wall and hold up signs and communicate. It hasn't been very long yet. They are probably wondering if some crazy bad guy inside is running some kind of a dangerous experiment or something, just like the girl thought the people outside had created the dome.

    Bear in mind that it's only been a day, and we've seen very little of what the people inside and outside the dome have been up to. They probably just haven't shown endless scenes of people inside jumping up and down waving their arms, and soldiers on the outside being ordered to ignore them. But last week we did see a few attempts at contact.

    As with the complaints in last week's thread that in the first hours of the dome being up we didn't see anybody digging & now in the second ep we see people digging, I suspect we'll see more attempts at interaction, probably quite soon. I also suspect at some point we'll start seeing things from the outside perspective as well, and then we'll get more information about what they've been up to.

    Near the beginning there was what looked like a work crew doing digging.

    I agree with all this. Ep2 was a big step down from the pilot. But I checked my TiVo To Do list last night and between then and Saturday night there are only two shows (plus news) being recorded... so this one stays.

    Not only that, but he passed out the night before at the dome and woke up on the porch of some other house at the beginning of this episode, helped there by his friend, so it's likely he's not even been home, except maybe to change before taking off to do some trig, and he has no idea his sister never came home the night before.

    That's the point. I agree the character is annoying, but in a disaster/situation like this, not everything is going to relate directly to the crisis at hand. For many people, they'll still have the same problems/thoughts/etc that they had before the crisis (i.e. Dome) or that they would have had regardless. People might even have affairs inside the Dome that have nothing to do with the Dome itself, but there still may be consequences and it may effect others.

    Well, clearly that choice was made so that the audience would know that the redhead was on to him (knows he's lying, but not sure why). If he would have just said "I found them in the woods", she'd be oblivious and as an audience, the writers felt it was important that we know she knows something. Happens all the time in TV and Movies.

    Angie does not live with her brother and parents. When they met up and Joe asked her about the parents, she said "You're the one that lives here." and when Junior kidnapped her, she was probably at her place because it definitely wasn't the same place where she had talked to Joe.

    So, you're saying that we shouldn't know every single thing yet. You're honestly suggesting that they let the story unfold over a period of episodes?

    Crazy talk!!
