    Well, that's but one of the problems with this ep. Many more, but I'm enjoying the un-plausibility of non-Dome events, YMMV.

    Max is dead? Say it isn't so.

    It became plausible when Linda saw Barbie with a gun and two more dead bodies. Jim played it well, even if it was predictable.

    How they played out the last episode was way too predictable and unimaginative. Hard to believe the writing is so pi$$ poor given the premise and all the places it could be taken. Max could have been a really interesting character but they decided to make her into something she was not. Everytime she made a ridiculous sounding threat I kept thinking to myself, just take her out.....

    LOL It's so funny to see people complain and rip apart a TV show, but keep watching. Gluttons for punishment? :grin:

    I am enjoying the show despite the logical inconsistencies. The only problem I have is that at the rate they are killing people off there wont be anyone left by the end of next season. I do hope that in the remaining 2 episodes this year we see what the connection is between the 4 teens and the dome

    I do find it interesting the dome seems to be telling the 4 teens to kill Big Jim

    If the dome did not exist, the four teens might find themself on Breaking News on all the major Network.

    Didn't everything immediately around the dome get blown up when the army tried to take down the dome early on?

    The dome is 10 miles in diameter so the bomb only took out the side it hit. However that does bring up another continuity point, the bridge the kids went to this week was the same spot we saw the bomb go off a few weeks ago

    That's the thing though... They talked about going to a bridge, but they didn't go one. I thought they were at the same spot where the boy and girl ended up that one time with the reporter and the woman from the radio station. Yeah, I can't remember their names at all...

    How come none of the outsiders have set up peek shows for inside the dome. ie. you own the farm bordering a good part of the dome, put in refreshment stands, a bar, a platform with pay binoculars, and maybe a fight club or two.... nothing but $$$$!!

    Pretend it's that Jim Carrey movie....

    An early episode explained that the military were restricting access to the area outside the dome. That was the episode when they allowed friends and families to communicate briefly (the day the bomb was launched).

    Obviously they wouldn't want gawkers anywhere near this inexplicable situation.

    Well, yes, I kinda knew that but there's no indication of how they're barricading it off. Especially seaward!

    They may have painted themselves into a corner. Now we are in a death match between whether Barbie can exonerate himself and Big Jim goes down for all of this, or whether Barbie has to pay. Both can't win, yet they are the two main leads and the writers have another season to dream up. About the only thing interesting will be how the writers get out of this dilemma. So we'll have an ep centering on Barbie the fugitive on the run chased by BJ and all his guns and probably a posse, and then a final ep that "wraps things up". Good luck with that. I care less each week.

    Maybe Church AV Guy was right to get out; it has only become more preposterous. Now the kids are just making stuff up about what means what. No show in recent memory has made me yell at my TV more than this one.

    At the rate they are killing each other off the show can't last much longer as everyone will be dead.
    They should not have shot that fine honey so quickly. They could have spun a bunch on her character.
