‘Under the Dome’ episode 8 preview: First look at ‘Thicker Than Water’

Under the Dome -Sometimes, “Under the Dome” is not a show that tends to rely on subtlety as a plot device. Then again, you probably figured this out thanks to the fact that there is a giant dome covering the town of Chester’s Mill. So far this season, some of the stories that we have encountered have relied rather heavily on just what some of the problems are within the town in terms of practical issues; but at this point in the season, we’re getting more and more into personal stories.

With that, we come to an episode that also has a not-so-subtle title in “Thicker Than Water.” Of course, it’s about family, and you can get an idea of what we are in for courtesy of the synopsis below:

“Junior stands up to his father and is shattered when he discovers the truth about his mother’s past. Meanwhile, Julia learns firsthand the powers of the ‘mini dome.'”

Granted, there are also still going to be some practical problems that manage to slowly work their way into the story. For example, a food shortage will be what helps to sever family ties, as there are also some disputes over land and resources. The one aspect of “Under the Dome” that really makes you think is that some of these problems exist today in our world. What if trade was impossible, and we were forced to live with what surrounded us? Would people really become this violent?

What do you think is going to come our way next in the world of “Under the Dome”? If you want to check out some more news about the show, our advice is to just head on over to the link here.
