Barbie is somehow with his training able to inserting a "chest tube"? He starts to do a needle throacostomy on her and then changes to inserting a chest tube. A procedure done in the ER. You do not have to suck on the tube, the tube when inserted drains the blood that is in the chest cavity. Never mind the fact It was placed too low and in the wrong position. It was a complete goat fornication with that whole scene saving Julia. Who writes this crap 8th graders? Thank you rant finished. biggrin.gif

I personally never had a "save" like that! Lots of CPR, defibrillation, and epinepherine and atropine involved. The whole scene was all over the place. Oh wait this is the dome. wink.gif

That scene was a real head scratcher for me .. I would almost vote it the dumbest scene so far .. she just somehow miraculously came back from the dead ..

Once again, Dome lowers even my low expectations ..

I suspended disbelief for that part thinking, well, OK, the bomb did not fully blast around the entire perimeter of the Dome .. but, what was more amazing to me was there was no sign of the Military / Scientists / Crowds of Religious Domeites / etc ..

I mean, a section of the USA is suddenly isolated by a "mysterious" Dome .. no one can get in or out and a giant bomb did absolutely no damage .. by now, would not the entire outside area of the Dome be run over with at least the Military and the Science community .. ?? This was World Wide major news .. not to mention the you-tube gang and what not ..

I'm glad Julia isn't dead, it was a close call though, Maxine could have shot her in the head or at least the other side of the chest

I wish writers had Linda have any brain at all, or even watch any of the 100 cop shows on tv!

Well, it is only the mother of all conventional bombs. The dome is ten miles across and five miles high, and tough. It would have blocked the other side (10 miles away), even if you dropped the Tsar Bomba on it.

Here in the SF Bay Area, KPIX saw fit at the end of one of the commercial breaks to put up a "Breaking News" that the new span of the Bay Bridge had opened early and put the first couple minutes of the next act of "The Dome" up in the upper right corner. I would have thought that their usual news promo before an act would have sufficed.

My head-scratcher hasn't even been mentioned yet...

When the sheriff arrives on the scene to see Barbie holding Big Jim at gunpoint... Big Jim says "he executed them both"... "he tied their hands and shot them in the head"....

Except...

Big Jim didn't shoot those two in the head... so... umm... I kept waiting for the sheriff to say "Jim, you said Barbie shot them in the head... only he didn't... they were shot in the chest."

Why such an obvious dialog issue like that?

Meanwhile...

I KNOW what the "dome wants"...

The dome wants some of us to stop watching the show smile.gif

I believe Jim shot them both in the forehead, from what I saw, the one that was shot in the chest was Julia, of course far off from the heart so she could live.. I could almost hear Big Jim yelling at Maxine "that's how you kill someone"

I have an explanation for Julia coming back, there was lightning in the air so The Dome zapped her with an invisible one and brought her back to life.. while at the same time Dodee figured out if there was lightning there was radio somehow..

RIP Mom, we always love you 8/18/13

I'll have to rewatch the ending to double check... I didn't think he shot them in the head, but I suppose I could be wrong. I admit to beginning to tune away mentally by then.

It occurs to me why this show is so successful: If only the folks in this forum (including the ones who are perpetually "ready to walk away") tune in to find things to be exasperated about, it will outdraw everything else on TV!
This show is a giant "What's wrong with this picture?"

I'm still watching, but not live, and not even live +2. I've resorted to reading the synopsis on avclub, and the comments here and there, and I get around to watching the episodes on the weekend. Its just not must see anymore, but I eventually get around to it.

Why would it affect an area 10 miles away around a circular dome?

That was 10 miles away around a circular dome, the bomb would not of affected that area.

My earlier prediction that Max's viciousness would convince either Big Jim or Barbie to kill her came true last night. When Big Jim gunned down Max and her henchman in cold blood my suspicions were confirmed. Big Jim has now murdered a mother and her daughter and a preacher, who was also his partner, and maybe others I forgot about. But Big Jim is a family man so maybe he's just misunderstood. I enjoy how Big Jim turned to his advantage Max's shooting Julia and his own cold blooded murder of Max. When Sheriff Linda arrived in the nick of time to thwart Big Jim's plan to shoot and kill Barbie too and Big Jim did a fast recalculation, started asking Linda for help, and blamed everything on Barbie, I started laughing. It was so toweringly bad it was good. I wonder if the showrunners and writers understand how funny Under the Dome is?

The best thing I can say about the series, is that there are only two episodes to go. The worst thing I can say is that there is going to be a Season 2. smile.gif

She took the blue BMW 5 series to the cement factory. The silver Mercedes you saw in the background was Max's E class Mercedes. She has been seen driving it multiple times. She was already at the factory, hence the reason her car was there.

It worked. Stupidest script, especially the dialogs, of any program I can remember.

The sharks have been circling for a long time. The last lines of the episode made for a total jump.

The "because the dome wants us to....." thing is getting really annoying.
The four kids in the mini-dome group don't seem to have a full working brain between them, it's like they come up with some random thought/idea and within two seconds it's "that's what the dome wants"!
So let it be written... so let it be done! (because that's what the dome wants).

This show is in serious jeopardy of entering the Terra Nova domain of sillyness.... Go away dome... go...go....go.... cause we don't like you no... no...no.... rolleyes.gif
