The June 29 episode of "Under the Dome" was titled "The Endless Thirst." In this thrilling installment of the series, the town's water supply and food stores began to dwindle, and a major riot broke out at the supermarket. Here are all the funniest and craziest tweets people shared during "The Endless Thirst," in case you missed 'em.
"Honestly I'm a little scared," says main character on Under the Dome, a show about how a dome came from nowhere to seal her inside— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) July 30, 2013
When a truck drives off the road and careens into the water tower, the tower collapses and water spills all over the ground. This sets off a chain of events that ends in a riot!
"Eventually, they'll run out of water""That will take too long...someone should crash into the water tower!!"-#UnderTheDome storytelling— Kyle Trembley (@KyleLovesTV) July 30, 2013
Out of all the characters I thought would die, I didn't expect the water tower to get it. #UnderTheDome— Kurt Heinrich (@theironkurtain) July 30, 2013
As if there weren't enough water problems in Chester's Mill, the local lake has been contaminated and all the fish are dying. With food getting scarcer, the supermarket began to get looted.
No insulin! The fish are dead! There's no water! Some dome-people are nuts!!That outta bring you up to speed. #UnderTheDome— Julie (@jas508) July 30, 2013
There's another shortage crisis in Chester's Mill. Insulin supplies are running dangerously low, a problem that strikes close to home for Norrie. One of Norrie's moms is diabetic, so Norrie takes it on herself to track down some insulin. This story line divided the fans. Some viewers loved it, while others thought it lacked something.
Say what you will, this "steal the insulin" plotline is the most interesting thing Norie's done all season #UnderTheDome— Kurt Heinrich (@theironkurtain) July 30, 2013
wow. everything about the diabetic storyline in #underthedome is LAUGHABLY, TRAUMATICALLY wrong. consult a medical professional next time.— Robyn Kennedy (@searobyn) July 30, 2013
Watching tonight's #UnderTheDome, I wonder if anyone on the writing staff even knows a diabetic— Kyle Nolan (@kyool) July 30, 2013
Another aspect of this episode that really divided the fanbase was the moment when it began to rain under the dome. The rain stopped the infighting and the violence, as people scrambled to collect the rainwater. But some fans wondered how it could be raining under the dome!
Either I don't understand weather or the people writing Under the Dome don't understand weather, but it can't be both.— Jim Squires (@jimmycanuck) July 30, 2013
Its a dome inexplicably covering a town and you're looking for realism? Yeah it can rain in there because its FICTION! @UnderTheDomeCBS— Lauri B. (@PigsWalkUpright) July 30, 2013
Meanwhile, Angie has her own problems. The resident punching bag of Chester's Mill manages to escape (again) from Junior's clutches, only to get attacked by other young men! Things get creepy in a hurry.
If Junior tells you to not be scared Angie, be scared. #UnderTheDome— Joey O'Hern (@joeyohern) July 30, 2013
#UnderTheDome I can't even root for Angie because she's too stupid to live. Why run into the woods? Go to where there are people, idiot!— Jocelyn Rish (@JocelynRish) July 30, 2013
Welp, Under the Dome just got super creepy— Ben Farmer (@farmer_ben11) July 30, 2013
Angie ends up back with Big Jim, who decides to cut a deal with her. If Angie keeps quiet about the abuse she suffered at Junior's hands, he'll make sure she's protected and given access to food and propane. But can he be trusted?
