Under the Dome: Who Will Be Crowned the Monarch?

Britt Robertson

And the children shall inherit the Earth? That's apparently the theme of CBS' Under the Dome.

On the previous episode, "The Fourth Hand," Joe (Colin Ford), Norrie (Mackenzie Lintz) and Angie (Britt Robertson) discovered that the mini-dome could be unlocked if they each putting their hand to it. But  they're missing one key: the titular "fourth hand." And for now it seems one of the eventual quartet is the Monarch the dome said would be crowned.

So, who is the Monarch? The obvious choice would be Angie, who became the latest  person to suffer from seizures. Joe seemed to quash that theory, pointing out to Norrie that Angie's butterfly tattoo is not a Monarch. But Angie could actually still be a candidate. "Of... read more

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of Breaking Bad. Read at your own risk.]

Breaking Bad certainly isn't treading lightly in its final episodes.

Just one week after the AMC drama wasted no time having DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris) confront his meth-cooking brother-in-law Walt (Bryan Cranston), the show was equally speedy in getting to the fallout. On Sunday's episode... read more

Breaking Bad: Will Skyler Stand By Walt's Side?

Anna Gunn

Many Breaking Bad fans were shocked that the AMC drama's midseason premiere wasted no time getting to the Walt-Hank confrontation. But the premiere featured a far more subtle surprise: Walt and his wife Skyler seemed happier together than they have in months.

Breaking Bad postmortem: What's Hank's next move?

Walt (Bryan Cranston) kept Skyler (Anna Gunn) in the dark about his meth-cooking for two seasons. When she found out about his drug operation, she eventually came on board to help Walt launder his money with her accounting background. But as Walt's alter ego "Heisenberg" grew more powerful, Skyler became increasingly afraid of her husband, remarking in an early Season 5 episode that her only course of action is to wait for Walt's cancer to come back and kill him.

So, now that Walt has made a storage locker full of cash and vowed to Skyler that he's out of the game, has that fear gone away? "I think she's really in a place where she's not sure which way to go," Gunn tells TVGuide.com.... read more

Under the Dome: Big Jim's Life Is About to Implode!

Dean Norris

As de facto leader of Chester's Mill, Big Jim Rennie (Dean Norris) has had a lot on his plate since the dome descended on Under the Dome. Whether it's a greedy racist hillbilly trying to take over the town or the threat of Rev. Coggins (Ned Bellamy) outing his drug business, Jim has faced adversity without turning into his dastardly novel counterpart — but that's about to change.

Last week, when the aforementioned Ollie (Leon Rippy) set out to take control of Big Jim's propane, the councilman made an example by blowing up his lackey. That act of aggression set things in motion for Big Jim to face off against his son Junior (Alexander Koch) for a family reunion that could turn deadly when secrets are revealed. To get the scoop on what executive producer Neal Baer calls an Emmy-worthy performance from Norris, TVGuide.com turned to the man himself:

Breaking Bad's Final Showdown: It's Walt vs. Hank

Dean Norris, Bryan Cranston

When Breaking Bad returns for its final eight episodes Sunday, Walter White is surprisingly in a pretty good place.

Although the first half of Season 5 saw former high school chemistry teacher Walt (Bryan Cranston) at his most reprehensible— he murdered his partner Mike (Jonathan Banks) and a dozen other people who could identify Walt as Gus Fring's mastermind meth cook — he still managed to take his meth empire international, make a storage locker full of cash and promise his wife Skyler (Anna Gunn) that he was quitting the business. read more

Weekend Review: Breaking Bad, Low Winter Sun, White Queen, Strike Back, Clear History

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul

As if we needed more evidence that there's never a slow time of year for significant TV (except maybe Christmas week), here's a mid-August weekend with so many premieres you might think fall had come early — although the new fall season would be lucky to boast shows remotely this interesting.

The greatest buzz, of course, surrounds the beginning of the end of AMC's darkly entertaining masterpiece Breaking Bad (Sunday, 9/8c), which resumes its climactic trajectory with the first of eight final episodes — and if Sunday's blistering hour is any indication of what's to come over the next two months, we're in for quite the wrenching ride. A ride that's teased by an opening flash-forward which suggests catastrophic consequences for the domestic life of Walter White (Bryan Cranston, astonishing as ever in his swings from mensch to menacing) — whose criminal alter ego is now in danger of being exposed by his brother-in-law/DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris, a world removed from the melodramatics of his new gig Under the Dome).

There's more than one dome!

The giant dome that descended upon Chester's Mill has a smaller dome at its center, which Joe (Colin Ford) and Norrie (Mackenzie Lintz) discovered on Monday's  Under the Dome. The mini-dome contained a small egg. What the what?!

Elsewhere in town, Alice (Samantha Mathis) lost her life from insulin deficiency after helping Julia's

(Rachelle Lefevre) neighbor give birth. Townsfolk also suffered from random visions from the dome and Big Jim (Dean Norris) went commando on someone who tried to take his stuff. Yikes! With so many new questions raised, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Neal Baer to get the scoop:

Well, now we know the dome is infallible.

The military learned that the hard way during Monday's Under the Dome after shooting a missile into the dome in hopes of destroying it. Because the dome has begun to affect the outside world in various ways — namely the butterflies' sense of direction because of the magnetic field emanating from the dome — the military buses in those who were left outside of Chester's Mill to say goodbye to their families before sending in the mother of all bombs (MOAB) to destroy the dome. Instead, the dome proved resilient, destroying all the land surrounding the dome. Oops!
