It might be that they were spraying acid on the dome (directly at the people on the inside). Or not. I seem to recall one of the teens putting their hand where the spray was and liquid (water?) had permeated the dome to wet his hand.

If only the Army had some sort of method of communicating with the people inside the Dome. Like if there were some sort of signage which could transmit words in some other form other than auditory ... like symbols which could be strung together and assigned some sensible meaning ... but that's too ridiculous.

So, since several people die at the hands of others in each episode, how many murderers now reside in Chester's Mill at this point?

Big Jim
Junior
Barbie

I think that the rest are dead. I am probably missing one or two though.

I am about four episodes behind on this and every week I read the thread and lose a little more of the desire to actually watch them.

the only thing ridiculous about it is that in order to use such a system, the Army guys would first have to somehow teach the people inside what each of the symbols mean, which brings them right back to square one with no way to communicate.

I was wondering what all the policing is accomplishing because with all of the looting and extra criminal activity, they don't seem to ever apprehend anyone, much less take them into custody.

you'd think they'd be able to track & catch at least one criminal, considering they're already inside a dome...

Which reminds me, Big Jim stated in his radio broadcast that a warrant had been issued for Barbie's arrest.

How exactly do they do that with out a judge in town?

It has occurred to me though that they will probably have to enact martial law soon.

I strained an eye muscle when he said that. My eyes rolled so far so quickly that I hurt myself.

He also said they would be seeking the death penalty, which means he's added "prosecutor" to the usual "judge, jury, and executioner"

I think that getreal was alluding to the fact that the Army could communicate with a paper and pen, if anyone were clever enough to think of that.

We know that the Dome can make people within it think that they are seeing things on the outside that aren't actually there (e.g. the four kids seeing Big Jim in this episode, the woman in labor seeing her sailor husband, etc). So who is to say that ANYTHING they see looking outward is an accurate reflection of what's really out there. Maybe, when looking outward, they just see what the Dome wants them to see -which is that the world has been unusually disinterested. Maybe there really ARE very active efforts to pierce the Dome, more than just the MOAB, and the water-spray test, and the few other things we've seen. Maybe the world outside the Dome really IS acting the way that we as viewers would expect it would, but the Dome itself is preventing its captives from actually seeing any of that. They are just being shown what the Dome wants them to see. That could also explain the rebel-girl's estranged father showing up. Someone had asked how he would know that she was trapped within, and why he was there, and how random and ill-written that seemed. Maybe he (and everyone else around him, on "visitor day,") was really just a projection.
To take that a step further, maybe there is no life outside the dome and everything the Domers see and hear is an illusion created by the all-powerful dome. Maybe the people in the dome are the only humans left on Earth, and they were selected because they are the best and brightest...Oh, never mind.

Or maybe there is no life INSIDE the Dome and everything WE see and hear is an illusion created by brain-damaged idiots?

I can see the show going that way, but the doe eyed Sheriff doesn't have the chops to lead her practically useless deputies into controlling the town. If Big Jim leads it will just be another posse and things will get out of hand, people will die. Add in the fact they're running out of gas and the propane so cars will eventually stop working (unless they find a stash of Photovoltaic solar panels). I can see this show becoming similar to NBC's Revolution but within a tiny area.

Honestly I think the idea of law & order continuing inside the dome is near impossible.. Food and water should be becoming more and more scarce everyday

Unless somehow the Dome (when happy) will provide rainfall for the trapped residents and livestock (if any exists) so they can grow crops and have a clean water supply. It wouldn't shock me at this point if somehow they could generate electricity from the dome too keep the Prius ads running.

My suggestion to the writers for season 2, the whole season should start from dome day, however be from the perspective of the outside world.

So Barbie was sucking the air out of Reds chest.... He must have went to one crazy Combat Skills Training before going to Iraq. I especially liked how after he sucked the air out, he turned his head and blew away from pen, so it wouldn't go back into her chest. Lol

I like the idea. Not sure they can pull it off.

They can't pull off what they're attempting now, so what's the difference?

Hence, the need for Barbie to challenge Big Jim.
Of course it was really stupid of Barbie to tell Big Jim what he was going to do.....

Well, they have stated that the local farms are producing food (crops and animals) and they did have the big brewhaha over the well.
And they seem to be well stocked with propane for now.

But they will be running out of other items (medicine has been touched on), municipal services are breaking down, and they have an incomplete justice system so yes, I would think that martial law would be required soon.

Not to mention Maine abolished the death penalty in 1887.

"We're not in Maine, so I'm going to push for the death penalty."

See how easy it would have been to fix that plot hole?

They've never actually said. I think the book was in Maine, so it is assumed.
