Another week brings another crisis under the dome. For last night's episode, it was a rogue deputy whose dome-panic led him into the woods where he ran around with a rifle. What exactly was Paul's plan? Guess it doesn't really matter. The preview for next week's "Outbreak" teases a threat that may not be fought with a gun. Of course, that won't keep people from trying. Case in point, Junior Rennie firing off a gun in the clinic. Who gave him a weapon?!
Here's the description for "Outbreak":
The people of Chester’s Mill fall into a state of panic as an outbreak of meningitis strikes their community, threatening their already depleted medical supplies. Meanwhile, Julia continues to search for answers into her husband’s disappearance, on UNDER THE DOME, Monday, July 15 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
An epidemic under the dome does seem like cause for panic, especially if Big Jim Rennie is right in saying the dome is like an incubator. Something tells me they'll get it under control, otherwise this will be a very short season. The panic may be a worse and far more damaging virus than the meningitis. Panic makes people do bad things.
In addition to Junior firing off the weapon, it looks like he and Angie get into a scuffle in the bunker. Does he leave her in there while the place is filling up with water? We'll have to wait and see. There's also a creepy shot of Joe putting his finger to his lips during a seizure like he's possessed or something. What's that about? And while Carolyn fears that the dome may never disappear, Alice appears to be making herself useful at the clinic. here's a shot of her tending to people.
And it looks like Phil Bushey may be one of the people who's fallen ill.
If he's sick, does that leave Julia to take over at the radio station? Or is Dodee holding it down there? Because it sounds like Julia's going to be looking into her husband's disappearance, which makes me think I may be right in thinking that map she saw in Barbie's bag will lead her to the cabin where Barbie's fight with Peter took place. How long before she figures everything out?
