Is it safe to say that Monday is a pretty dome-tastic day? As corny as saying that is (and it is pretty darn corny), it is the truth on this occasion. You had a pretty incredible episode of “Under the Dome” last night, but also the news that CBS is going to be bringing the drama back for another 13-episode run, which will air once again in the summer. (Thankfully, no messing with what works.)
Now if you thought that you’ve seen a side of Big Jim that you do not particularly like just far, we have a message for you: It’s not going to get particularly better from here. As a matter of fact, things are going to start to become strange. Next week’s episode is entitled “Imperfect Circles,” and judging from the first synopsis released by CBS, we wouldn’t want to anger Dean Norris’ character right about now:
“Big Jim takes matters into his own hands when he feels his authority slipping away, and the dome displays its power when a life is taken just as a newborn arrives.”
Also, the promo below hints at the dome actually doing something to an unborn child, which raises a very important question: Why do all genre shows have to have some sort of child with crazy powers? Just take a look at the supposed demon baby on “True Blood,” Claire’s child being essential on “Lost,” or even back on USA’s criminally-underrated “The 4400.” All of them seem incredibly fascinated with what happens when a kid is born into this world, and that’s something that “The Walking Dead” even toyed around with to a certain extent (even if the kid was not supernatural in any way).
