'Under the Dome' Tweet-cap: Julia and Barbie Finally Acknowledge the Elephant in the Room
If you missed "Let the Games Begin," we've got all the best jokes and reactions that were posted on Twitter during the episode.
Before we get to the relationship drama between Barbie and Julia, let's catch up on the quest for "the fourth hand." Building on the plot from the previous episode, the teens decide to seek out the fourth person needed to activate the mini-dome.

Dodee tries her hand at, well, being "the hand." She gets rejected in a particularly violent fashion. Clearly, she's not a match!
I honestly don't trust Dodee. I don't think she's bad. I just think she has a big mouth & is gonna get these kids in trouble. #UnderTheDome— Gracie B. (@Gracie_TV) August 27, 2013
In its heroic and ongoing quest to kill off all remotely likable characters, #UnderTheDome puts Dodee in harm's way.— Kyle Trembley (@KyleLovesTV) August 27, 2013
After finally telling Joe that Junior kidnapped her when the Dome first appeared, Angie convinces her brother that Junior is the most likely "fourth hand-idate." She tells everyone about the painting with the pink stars, and it's revealed that Junior had seizures as a kid.
Why would you touch the mini dome? If the regular dome electricutes people, then why wouldn'tyou expect this one to. #UnderTheDome— Judith Giampietro(@countryheart13) August 27, 2013
The revelation that Junior is the missing hand was met with plenty of fan outcry. For some fans, bringing abusive Junior into the "seizure club" just seems wrong.
Another component irking fans about this episode was the level of realism. Many fans took to Twitter to complain that the show was being a bit inconsistent with the town's dwindling supplies.
WHY... JUST WHY did it HAVE to BE JUNIORarghhhhhhh #underthedome— Jessica (@JessicaRb) August 27, 2013
#UnderTheDome wow, for a town with limited supplies, everyone still has electricity, battery life, and gasoline.— William the Bloody (@BloodyWilliam) August 27, 2013
Another unrealistic situation that worked fans' nerves this week: the formation of a fight club in Chester's Mill.
If there's a lake in Chesters Mill why was everyone freaking out about continuos water supply a few weeks ago? #UnderTheDome— Joey O'Hern(@joeyohern) August 27, 2013
#UnderTheDome In a show FULL of stupid, the townspeople trading incredibly scare FOOD to watch people fight is the dumbest thing yet.— Jocelyn Rish (@JocelynRish) August 27, 2013
Even though Max was just recently introduced, many fans are already sick of her. It doesn't help that she spends most of this episode trying to blackmail both Barbie and Big Jim.
Since apparently Fight Club is now part of #UnderTheDome, I'm working on a theory where Barbie is Joe's Tyler Durdin.— Kyle Trembley (@KyleLovesTV) August 27, 2013
#UnderTheDome i cannot believe they brought in this new Max villain woman when they haven'teven properly used the characters they have.— William the Bloody (@BloodyWilliam) August 27, 2013
Meanwhile, Linda finally learns the secret that Duke was hiding. After Duke's son died from an overdose, he vowed to keep drugs out of Chester's Mill. To do this, Duke, Lester, and Big Jim made a deal with Max. They provided propane, and she kept the town clean.
Big Jim: "Afraid I'm gonna screw your over?"Barbie: "You're a used car salesmen Jim.."Good point... @UnderTheDomeCBS #UnderTheDome— Brandon Salmon (@BrandonSalmon) August 27, 2013
