As the world outside the Dome is rocked by a catastrophic meteor shower, unexpected alliances form inside the barrier.

The dome being there to protect them from the end of the world would have been an interesting development in season one. Adding it at the midway mark of season 3 feels tacked on. Especially since they've already cashed in on the pink stars before as being a friendly sign and not humanity destroying meteors.

They did try to tie in the meteors and wall of fire to Lyle Chumley's predictions. That would have worked better if Lyle were still alive or the doubting scientist Rebecca were alive or if any part of season 2 made any sense at all.

Drunk Jim and Julia are fun to watch.

Rocks fall; everyone dies.

I suspect the apocalypse will turn out to have been a Dome-ey illusion -- pods within pods? -- or the resolution will involve the Dome somehow resetting things back to the way they were.

(I was complaining about the bleakness of the book in last episode's thread; firestorm outside the Dome is almost a nice inversion of that.)

I suspect the apocalypse will turn out to have been a Dome-ey illusion -- pods within pods?

I was thinking a simple image projection like it has done before on a smaller scale. But pods within pods could be fun. It would throw away most of the season and make no sense but that's what this show does best.

I was hoping for them to fix the apocalypse with time travel. That's one sci-fi trope they haven't done yet except for Melanie. Time travel only works in a show with meticulously mapped out continuity or a show that has no regard at all for continuity. So I think that would work well too.

I think this is like the third time this show has done the "we're the only man and woman left we have to repopulate the earth" gag. Never gets old.
