    Maybe it started to glow after it got ahold of Big Jim's Cialis stash...

    Anyone else wondering when they were throwing the snow globes of cities at the Dome if they were activating Domes over those cities?

    No, but I thought maybe a critical mass of "attacks" on the skin might trigger something.

    Most likely people living in those cities were getting splitting headaches for no reason whatsoever. :)

    Will Hank get out of the dome in time to bring down Hesienberg?

    Great question! He's working awfully hard in The Dome, with so little to work with. What a difference watching him in BB.

    Dean Norris is on Letterman this week.

    It will be interesting to get to know the man behind these roles.

    Here is my theory after the last episode played.
    Jr is going to be the Monarch since his mother painted him in a painting with the pink starts in it 9 years before this all happened.
    The girl he had chained up that has the butterfly on her shoulder is going to be his mate / partner, whatever.

    After this past episode, I wonder if their wasn't a major accident at the drug making facility and they are all experiencing the drug effect? I really didn't like this episode as much as the other past ones.

    My Q - Why would the Egg Bubble need to be carried? You would figure it could move on its own by some mysterious alien way.

    So ... if the egg dome is the center of the dome does moving it move the dome? Will the dome recenter on the egg?

    BTW: I believe that Jr is the fourth hand ... the two young couples that make up the show.

    Jr makes the most sense as the fourth hand. They need to rev up the next episode a bit more to keep this moving along.

    Fourth hand----- must be getting up for a game of Bridge. Speaking of The Bridge, it's on inside of an hour!!

    Moving the dome would be a bit messy, more than a few cows would perish, and water and sewer pipes would suffer.... so, I doubt it!

    Agreed. There is only so much license for WTF? behavior that I can tolerate, and the whole idea of Big Jim being able to instantly mesmerize an entire town (who just had a major panic riot over supplies acting like a bunch of soccer hooligans two days ago) into giving up all of their weapons might be over the line.

    And then there is Linda. As lovely and earnest as she is, she is only the de facto sheriff because the real sheriff is dead. And I never really felt that she has shown that she is up to the job. Last night she fired her sidearm at a lock on a shed housing a gazillion gallons of liquid propane. Really?

    Barbie and Jim were worried about things going sideways, but if that had ended the way it could have, we could have actually seen how Under The Dome 2 might happen, which is that Linda blows up enough liquid propane all at once to solve Chesters Mill's dome problem permanently by blowing it into the lower stratosphere like the plastic cork from a cheap bottle of champagne. And then, for next season, the story picks up on the next Stephen King fictional New England burg that the dome lands on after it rockets away from Chesters Mill.

    So yeah, getting a little thin. My propane fantasy makes as much sense as anything the writers have come up with so far.

    But the good news is that any show is immediately improved by having the exceedingly lucious Natalie Zea added to the cast, although I hope she ends up back on Justified where she belongs. The problem here is that she was unavailable for so long that we are supposed to swallow whole the idea that she has been squatting in a vacant house for the last 8 days, and that her part in this story therefore deserves 10 minutes of boring exposition late in episode 7 or wherever we are, which was enough to literally put me to sleep. Which it did.

    I'm glad that they added her, but this story is starting to look more like a high school play improvised on the spot than an actual CBS scripted drama.

    And sadly, speaking of CBS, Dean Norris came off a little full of himself on Letterman, to put that nicely. OK, you've been a working actor for years, you're a Harvard graduate, and you have recent notoriety as a key character in two very popular TV shows all at once. Good for you. But really, how about a little humility instead of screaming to everyone that you're the man like some sort of untalented rap artist? I like both his nefarious characters a lot better than him after that after that appearance, and they are both major d***s. The creepy smile? Apparently that's not acting.

    It isn't a dome, We are only seeing the top of a sphere.

    My Guess
