When TV Guide spoke to Under the Dome showrunner Neal Baer, he revealed tons of spoilers that should give answers to your burning questions.
Yesterday, Dean Norris tweeted this BTS photo alluding that Angie may finally escape from Junior’s lair. Baer discussed this scene with the publication, check out what he has teased:
As the bomb shelter is filling with water, it’s not a good thing. This will all come to fruition next week and there’s a scene at Big Jim’s house towards the end of next week’s episode that’s one of my favorite scenes we’ve ever done. It’s also one of the craziest scenes we’ve ever done. All the years I did SVU and looking for clues, I never did this.
Keep reading to get more spoilers for the coming episodes of Under the Dome:
Are we ever going to see the dome cut through water?
We’ve seen it cut through just about everything else. What kind of damage does it cause being cut through a lake or a water main?
Baer’s response: We’re definitely going to be talking about that in Episode 6.
Are the seizures connected?
After Norrie (Mackenzie Lintz), who had lied to Joe (Colin Ford) so she could crash at his house, touched his hand, the pair both fell into the seizures in the premiere while saying, “The pink stars are falling in lines.”
Baer’s response: We’re going to get much more into what this is about next week. [Norrie and Joe] will find common ground over this. Now things will rev up. Next week has a jaw-dropping end.
How will Barbie and Big Jim continue to work together in the coming weeks?
Big Jim enlisted Barbie to help track Paul down, where they found some common ground. But just before Paul was killed, Big Jim was talking about an eye for an eye, presumably discussing how Paul should be killed since he killed Freddie. But what if Big Jim was talking about Barbie, who beat up Junior? When the manhunt ended, Big Jim and Barbie planned to celebrate or commiserate over a drink, but Junior arrived home, so Barbie left. But Big Jim’s conversation with the irate Junior seemed to indicate that Big Jim has bigger plans for Barbie.
Baer’s response: It’s the key dramatic relationship in the series, so we’re going to see a lot of dancing and unexpected changes and switches. It will all make sense by the end. We’re writing the last episode right now and it’ll all come together.
The police department is now down to one person. Will we see other people recruited to help?
With Duke, Paul and Freddie dead, only Linda (Natalie Martinez) is left to be in charge as the new Sheriff. Big Jim suggested new deputies, so who might we see in that group and what process will recruits go through to join up?
Baer’s response: Yes. There’s plenty of trouble on the way.
‘Under the Dome’ airs every Monday on CBS.
