There's also no death certificate or proof of death so I don't how anything can be claimed against that policy. But I guess it was just a prop to finalize the discussion on Barbie preemptively coming clean.

I am entertained by the sci-fi of the dome/little dome and waiting for a payoff that will probably never happen (a la Lost), but these other stories are mind-numbing. Yet, like you all, still watching!

Potential Mare Winningham spoiler

Spoiler:
Don't know if it means anything, but while IMDB does not have her listed in the next episode, they do have a stunt double listed -- a different stunt double from the one used in this episode.

If she goes under and gulps in water, she will go into an instinctual drowning mode. It should be easy to get out of, but it's hard to fight instinct. It's like saying waterboarding shouldn't be that effective--it's just a little water up the nose. But it triggers a response in a very deep part of the brain and you can't fight it. Drowning is like that.
What you don't realize yet is that when she first saw Big Jim approaching the island she put an inflatable life vest on under her dress. After she jumps in the lake and Jim speeds away, she retrieves the switchblade hidden in her pocket, cuts her hands free and inflates the life vest. She is a champion swimmer and all the flailing around she was doing was an act.

Actually, since this is Under the Dome we're talking about, they probably won't take such an obvious approach. They'll probably come up with some unbelievable story as to how she survives.

when junior joins them to touch the egg sphere, a bolt of energy will shoot out, zapping and propelling her through the air to shore, where she gently lands on tall grass. unfortunately, she will have already drowned.

Maybe the pink stars can bring her back to life - along with Junior's mom.

I never have watched the show, but I find these threads facinating.

I assume to put an upper limit on the number of possble episodes. In episode 328, there will be nothing left for the writers, but to have Barbie shoot the 3 teenagers, and then himself.

TV Guide listing

Under the dome, Episode 409
The residents of Chester's Mill figure out that if they run their cars at 92 mph, they can climb the dome and drive sideways, creating a wind tunnel effect as the Back to the Future car propels the occupants to 1955

The only thing that could save this show now would be to have Walter White show up outside the dome and have him taunt Big Jim with a bag of "blue".

with 11 million viewers each week and around 6 million more added to that when streaming and DVR usage is added in, this show doesn't need to be saved. It is already in a position most shows would envy.
