The updated preview for this Monday's episode of Under the Dome offers a few more clues as to what we can expect from the next installment of this exciting new series. And the episode description fills in some other blanks, so if you don't want to be spoiled at all for what's ahead on Under the Dome, read no further! But be sure to check out our breakdown of last Monday night's "The Fire," here.
When we shared the post-episode preview for Episode 3 of Under the Dome, I speculated that Paul, the unstable deputy who fired off his gun in "The Fire," who's also Linda's future brother-in-law, might be the "man" in the titular "Manhunt." While the above preview doesn't outright confirm that, the episode description for "Manhunt" does confirm that a former deputy goes rogue.
“Manhunt” – When a former deputy goes rogue, Big Jim recruits Barbie to join the manhunt to keep the town safe. Meanwhile, Junior is determined to escape the dome by going underground, on UNDER THE DOME, Monday, July 8 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Paul's ricochet bullet might have landed him in a jail cell, and the preview shows us Linda getting into a scuffle with someone. Perhaps he overpowers her and escapes? Just a guess, but given her familiarity with him through her fiancé, it's not hard to imagine that happening.
Other added snippets to the preview show Joe's friend talking about the apocalypse, Jim Rennie having a conversation with someone about "commanding respect," Julia questioning someone's authority, and confirmation that it's Julia with Junior Rennie underground. I was going to guess that Junior and Julia were teamed up for the manhunt, which is why they're underground, but the description says Junior is determined to escape the dome by going underground, so maybe she followed him down there to see what he was up to. Either way, it looks like his crazy is showing and Julia sees it.
We'll find out how things play out for "Manhunt" this Monday.
BIGGER SPOILERS AHEAD
For those who want to look a bit further ahead, here's the description for the following Monday night's episode, titled "Outbreak."
"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 outbreak is one more major issue for a town trapped under a dome, where the air quality might not be so great and there's no way to escape. But based on this behind-the-scenes photo from the episode, sickness isn't the only threat.
Looks like a flood! Water is pouring into that bunker at an alarming rate. The obvious question is whether or not the bunker will fill up with water, threatening to drown Angie, but I'm also wondering about the source of the water. We know some water can get through the dome, but even if it was raining hard, how much would it have to rain for that much water to get into the bunker? So I'm going to assume the flood is from something else. A burst pipe, maybe? We'll find out July 15.
