Following the frantic chaos of riots, Chester's Mill has moved on to the politics of being stuck under a dome.

During Monday's episode, Big Jim (Dean Norris) tries to take Ollie's (Leon Rippy) land under eminent domain. Ollie shows his strength in numbers, forcing the group to leave empty-handed. They also leave one less in number since Junior (Alexander Koch) decides to join Ollie's band of outlaws. After Junior learns the truth that his mother killed herself, he sets his sights on taking his father out, but things don't go as planned. With new mysteries raised, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Neal Baer to get some answers: 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:

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! With so many new questions raised this week, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Neal Baer to get the scoop:
