The residents of Chester's Mill have finally learned the obvious: They're under a dome.
Monday's episode of Under the Dome saw the town finally connect the dots, as Julia (Rachelle Lefevre) commandeered the radio station to announce what government officials had already figured out. Now comes the hard part, as the town begins to feel the suffocating realization that there's a good chance they could all die inside the dome — whether that means from the elements, like this week's house fire, or from each other remains to be seen. With so many new questions raised in Week 2, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Neal Baer to get scoop on what's next:

CBS' new summer series Under the Dome kicked off Monday night with quite the bang after a dome mysteriously trapped the residents of quaint Chester's Mill within the town lines, cutting them off from the rest of the world. (And cutting a cow in half in the process. Gross.)
How will CBS' Under the Dome differ from Stephen King's novel?
It's a bird. It's a plane. Duck and cover! What goes up must come down in a small town trapped — wait for it — Under the Dome, the title of an ingeniously warped conceit from the fertile mind of Stephen King, who believes that ...
On Big Brother, Survivor and The Real World, producers stick the contestants in a virtual fishbowl to find out what happens, well, when people stop being polite and start getting real.
CBS' Under the Dome is essentially the same premise, except that in this case, the fishbowl is literal and the show is fictional, based on the novel by Stephen King. It's the residents of Chester's Mill, an ordinary small town, who find themselves trapped under a dome of unknown proportions with no hope of escape.

Like Norman Bates of Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller Psycho, the producers behind A&E's new drama series Bates Motel seem to be of two minds.
A&E's prequel, which premieres Monday at 10/9c and stars Finding Neverland's Freddie Highmore as a teenage Norman Bates, seeks to tell audiences how a young man grows up to be a taxidermy-loving killer. The answer posited by Hitchcock's film is that Norman was driven insane by his overprotective mother ...
