When Under the Dome returns (Monday, 10/9c,CBS), the residents of Chester's Mill are still trapped beneath the giant dome that is supposedly there for their protection — this according to some otherworldly force that appeared to the Monarch Julia (Rachelle Lefevre) and the Four Hands via a vision of deceased Alice (Samantha Mathis) in the finale.
It's been two weeks since the mysterious dome descended upon the town, with the possibility of escape becoming increasingly unlikely. However, there might be hope for at least one character, if not more, to make their way outside the dome. "This is the search to get out," executive producer Neal Baer tells TVGuide.com of Season 2.

Under the Dome closed its first season Monday and left viewers with more questions than answers.
