I think Under the Dome has replaced the void that Lost left in my heart— Meghan J (@bagelmegal) July 23, 2013
"Blue on Blue" revolved around a kind of "Family Day" event for the folks of Chester's Mill, which allowed the people trapped under the dome to see their loved ones.
Against better judgment, I'm watching Under the Dome again. Thanks a lot Royal Baby.— North O'Dowd (@THEJohnODowd) July 23, 2013
Deputy Linda tries to kiss her husband-to-be through the dome, to no avail. Meanwhile, Norrie meets a visitor who claims to be her dad.
"I don't want anyone on our side touching it (the dome)."*kisses boyfriend through invisible dome*That's Under the Dome logic for you.— Fabien (@VofEscaflowne) July 23, 2013
It turns out that Family Day wasn't just a nice gesture; it was a distraction from the military's real plan: to use a MOAB (mother of all bombs) on the dome.
Are people seriously coming to visit them as if they're some sort of tourist attraction? #UnderTheDome— Anabelle (@sydrianfeels) July 23, 2013
Visitors day wasn't about saying hello it was about saying goodbye. #UnderTheDome— Amanda Meissner (@amanda_meissner) July 23, 2013
CBS news anchor Jeff Glor made a cameo appearance as himself. While plenty of fans recognized him, many of them wanted to see more famous newsmen on the scene at Chester's Mill.
#UnderTheDome just keeps getting more compelling. China threatens 2 bomb. Butterflies & magnetic fields. And now the M.O.A.B. Amazing!— Edward Hines (@LordEdzo) July 23, 2013
Meanwhile, Reverend Lester Coggins was acting crazy — well, crazier than usual. He reveals that his hearing aid is picking up words being "spoken" by the dome itself.
One mystery solved: His hearing aid was picking up military chatter about the impending bomb strike. When he threatened to reveal Big Jim's big drug secret, Big Jim shuts him up for good. RIP, Reverend Crazy Eyes.
Ah, so the suddenly cray-cray Reverend is getting messages from the dome. Makes a little bit more sense. #UnderTheDome— Sandra Campbell (@themystikaal) July 23, 2013
Speaking of Big Jim, he had quite the story line with Angie this week. After discovering that Junior had trapped Angie, Big Jim refuses to let the girl go.
BIG JIM: Woe! My son is a psycho kidnapper of girls! Where did I go wrong!?!?*sniffles* *casually kills man in cold blood*#underthedome— Katie Massiah (@outofmyplanet) July 23, 2013
Once the town learns of the government's plan to bomb the dome, however, Big Jim has a change of heart. He lets Angie free, so she can die free.
Don't get me wrong, Under the Dome is trash but I'm watching b/c I wanna see what this man does about this girl being locked in his basement— Ateerys A. Senoj (@SyGoFlyy) July 23, 2013
