Mike Vogel and Ned Bellamy
It's a question that's been on everyone's minds since Under the Dome premiered: Is Big Jim following in the footsteps of his literary counterpart and selling drugs?
We might get an answer to that on Monday, when the town of Chester's Mill falls into a state of emergency after an outbreak of meningitis threatens to deplete the town's medical supplies. But in this exclusive first look photo, Big Jim's (Dean Norris) lackey Reverend Lester Coggins (Ned Bellamy) seems to be either hording what the town so desperately needs to survive or that's a big shipment of drugs!
Going Under the Dome: Neal Baer answers burning questions on "dome fever"
"That is the key to the next several episodes," executive producer Neal Baer tells TVGuide.com. "It's an important thing because it tells us who Reverend Coggins is, where he stands and where he's going and that will have huge impact on Big Jim in particular."
Hit the comments with your guesses as to why Coggins has what appears to be a car full of drugs — and whether Barbie (Mike Vogel) is helping him or confronting him!
Under the Dome airs Mondays at 10/9c on CBS.
