[ # ] Under the Dome makes like a butterfly and goes through a metamorphosis
July 7th, 2014 under Under The Dome


Last year, Under the Dome changed summer television forever and this season the CBS show is going through some changes starting tonight at 10p.
Last week’s, season premiere was shocking moment after shocking moment and that was just the beginning.
To start off about the changes, if you thought the special effects were awesome last year, this year’s will be even better. We will start to see those special effects tonight. Executive Producer, Neal Baer, previewed the visuals by saying, “you will see with butterflies that you never would believe. These beautiful creatures that may not be, I mean, we are having so much fun with our effects.” What else those effects will be, we will have to tune in each week to find out. But I will tell you one of the effects we will be seeing in the coming weeks, and that is a dust storm that makes visibility in the dome nearly impossible.
This whole season will take place over two weeks, and what a crazy two weeks it will be. Last week, we saw Big Jim going through a metamorphosis like a butterfly. Baer said, Big Jim, went through an “awakening and he reevaluates his position and his kind of personal trajectory and decides that maybe a different kind of Big Jim is required to survive Under The Dome.” Then he added, “Whether that turns out to be truthful or not, that’s what we’ll find out as the season goes on but it’s certainly where he goes to.”
Dean Norris, who plays Big Jim, explained some of what his character will be dealing with this season. He said, “Big Jim is trying to deal with is is there enough food for everybody, is there enough water for everybody. What resources are left for us to survive Under The Dome. That’s definitely one of the themes that we deal with and Big Jim, in particular, is looking to try to answer or come up with a solution for.”
Solutions he might get some help with from a new character, Rebecca Pine (Karla Crome) who is a Science Teacher in Chester’s Mill. According to Baer, her character was added, “so we can have the science, really getting into the science versus faith elements this season. And we really pursue that because Rebecca represents scientific explanations for what’s going on versus Rachelle’s character, Julia, who is really much more about faith and Big Jim is kind of in the middle trying to figure it out.” Baer emphasized that point by adding, “So we have this real tension between science and faith this year and Big Jim is caught in the middle which we think is really cool. We explore that over all the episodes.”
And the central theme of all of those episode per the EP, “I guess our characters haven’t been the stewards that maybe they should be of protecting the land and protecting each other. So they have a lot to learn this year and I guess the Dome is teaching them.”
And each Monday night at 10p we will have to tune in to CBS to see what lessons they have learned, if any…
