Going Under the Dome: Neal Baer Addresses the Mechanics of the Dome

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, turned to executive producer Neal Baer to get scoop on what's next:

Under the Dome's Britt Robertson: Will Angie Survive?

Britt Robertson

Surprisingly, it's not a bad thing that Angie McAlister is locked up in a fallout shelter by crazed ex-fling Junior Rennie on Under the Dome — because at least it means she's alive.

In the Stephen King book, on which the CBS series is based, Angie actually died before the dome descended upon Chester's Mill, meaning Britt Robertson has already long outlived her novel counterpart. But the question remains how long she'll actually live since the deranged Junior (Alexander Koch) locked her up in his father's (Dean Norris) fallout shelter. To get the scoop on what's in store for those crazy love birds (sarcasm!), turned to Robertson:

How Will CBS' Under the Dome Differ from Stephen King's Novel?

Mike Vogel

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.
