Under the Dome Recap: 'But What Does It Mean?'

Aug 26 2013, 11:00pm CDT | by TV Line

Well that was a whole lotta silly.

This week on CBS’ Under the Dome, (too many?) secrets were revealed, the mini-dome’s fourth “key” was identified and Mad Max perhaps filed a copyright infringement lawsuit somewhere.

ENTER THE THUNDERDOME | Big Jim and Barbie confabbed about handling their mutual Maxine problem, only to get interrupted by the drug lord herself. While Jim sneaked off to a nearby lakefront property to locate Max’s “insurance policy,” Barbie was led to the cement factory, where Max spent the past eight days setting up an underground fight club-slash-barter market. Lest she reveal his secret — that he killed Julia’s hubby — Max forces Barbie to take to the ring against an old debtor of hers. Barbie ultimately throws the fight, yet that was just as Max had planned, so she wins.

Later, Barbie gets fed up with Max’s (incredibly tiresome) blackmail threats and goes to ‘fess up to Julia — but not only had she (elsewhere, in a duller corner of the episode) put together what happened between the men at the cabin, she’s actually pretty OK with it! (See, Peter had taken out an insurance policy and then set out to make Barbie kill him. It’s all very posthumously romantic.)

AGGIE’S GOT A GUN | Checking out a lakefront property owned by Max’s real estate company, Big Jim meets a kindly woman named Agatha, who ultimately pulls a gun on him once he discovers she is actually Maxine’s momma (and an old classmate of his, but that reveal was… random). Jim almost immediately gains the upper hand and disarms Brat Packer Mare Winningham, then on their way back across the lake in his boat he lets her drown when she, for some invisible reason, tumbles overboard.

JUNIOR LENDS A HAND | Young’uns Angie, Joe and Norrie (DON’T WORRY, YOUR SURVIVING MOM IS PROBABLY DOING FINE) wake to see that a caterpillar destined to become a monarch butterfly is crawling around inside the mini-dome, which, you know, kinda makes some sense, so they set out to find the fourth “key.” While they’re away, suspicious Dodee discovers the mini-dome, but gets zapped/burned when she goes to touch it. When Angie is reminded that Junior once “passed out” (seized?) at a school dance, that info, coupled with his mom’s “pink stars” paintings, lead the kids to deduce that he is the fourth hand.

Sure ’nuff, after they read Junior in on the mini-dome sitch (and after Angie finally reveals to how she had been kidnapped, but for misguided reasons, SO IT’S TOTES OK), Junior proves to indeed be the final key, triggering a light show that didn’t quite rival Bruno Mars at the VMAs, but nonetheless filled the barn with constellations of pink stars.

“But… what does it mean?” Junior asks on behalf of us, the audience.

QUESTIONS I AM NOW WONDERING….

* Is it me or does Deputy Linda suck the air out of every scene she is in? (And now she is even sadder!)

* Why is salt a hot commodity in Mad Max’s Underdome? Margaritas?

* I’m sorry, Max’s mother Claire changed her name to Agatha?

* Who else chuckled when Maxine spoke of the great “chaos” going on in Chester’s Mill, where everyone is acting pretty damn tame considering they’re encased in a supernatural dome?

* What is the point of Max now that her barrel of secrets — Barbie’s killing of Peter, Big Jim’s drug trade — have leaked out?

* It was pretty windy in the dome this week, wasn’t it?

* Maxine talks big about wanting to live life as well as she can in the dome, with all her luxuries. Are bras not on her list?

What new questions do you have about the Dome?
