The town of Chester's Mill might be isolated under a mysterious dome, but that didn't stop a new character from appearing on the Aug. 19 episode of CBS's summer hit "Under the Dome." Featuring guest star Natalie Zea ("The Following" and "Justified"), "The Fourth Hand" was jam-packed with surprises and revelations. Here are some of the best tweets viewers shared during the episode.
The episode started off innocently enough, with Norrie and Joe trying to rustle up some dinner. But their pathetic attempts to catch a chicken had some viewers less than impressed with the couple's survival skills.
Elsewhere in town, there's a new face stirring up some old emotions. Maxine (Zea) has her hands all over the dirty drug business that Big Jim, Rev.Coggins, and Duke were involved in.
Oh, and one more thing: Max and Barbie have a history. Could the introduction of Max drive a wedge between the fledgling relationship between Barbie and Julia?
Meanwhile, the show's most dysfunctional "couple"was having a surprisingly interesting day. While pretty much every Junior and Angie subplot to date has revolved around Angie being locked in a cellar, this episode proved that Junior might have had pure motivations for kidnapping her, after all.
#UndertheDome is the most propane-centric show since "King of the Hill," I tell you what. @UnderTheDomeCBS @mikejudge— TV Über (@TVuber) August 20, 2013
There's only one rule to catching chickens, it aint easy #UnderTheDome— I Call Him Zazzles(@ICalHmZaz) August 20, 2013
"Let it run into the dome wall, knock itself out." -my mom, offering chicken catching suggestions #UnderTheDome— Derek Frey Williams (@DisFreyWilliams) August 20, 2013
Ok kid should have just used a sheet and thrown it over the chicken! #UnderTheDome— Buffy (@Liekman) August 20, 2013
And NatalieZea continues her quest to appear on every show on television. Not that there's anything wrong with that. #UndertheDome— Ellen Gray (@elgray) August 20, 2013

I have to say that Max is kind of fun so far. She knows way too much and makes Evil Jim uncomfortable. #UnderTheDome— Dahne (@dahne1) August 20, 2013
What? This woman just kissed Barbie? Who the hell is she and why did she just NOW show up? #UnderTheDome— Brandon (@DaysAddict) August 20, 2013
Well, that was one hell of a greeting Barbie just got from her #UnderTheDome— Anabelle (@sydrianfeels) August 20, 2013
It turns out that Junior's mom knew something about the mysterious pink stars, and she painted them on a picture of Junior in his youth.
Only on this show can you go from "he kidnapped me" to "were cool now" in 8 days. @UnderTheDomeCBS #UnderTheDome— Brandon Salmon (@BrandonSalmon) August 20, 2013
On top of it all, Angie starts having seizures and talking about the pink stars, too! At the end of the episode, Angie meets up with Joe and Norrie. The three teens put their hands on the minidome — but apparently they need a fourth hand to make theminidome react. Could Junior be that missing link?
What did you think of "The Fourth Hand"? Is Junior starting to redeem himself? And what do you think about Maxine? Sound off in the comments below!
The egg thing is in the barn! How did that happen? #UnderTheDome— Sharon (@TiredTwist33) August 20, 2013
Ok I dont like this Max chick.. She needs a visit to the dome wall!! #underthedome— Chantie ❤ (@Pinkglamorchick) August 20, 2013
So basically we have 2 stories here: Dome, pink stars, mini dome, egg. And then some drama about drugs & propane. Connection? #UnderTheDome— Rhonda Turner (@obsessiverhonda) August 20, 2013
Genuinely bummed that the last scene didn't end with "WHEN OUR POWERS COMBINE..." and Captain Planet bursting out of mini-dome #UnderTheDome— Kyle Trembley(@KyleLovesTV) August 20, 2013
