Under The Dome executive producer Neal Baer has shared his take on some of the burning questions from the serial drama’s penultimate episode of the year, in his latest chat with TVGuide. Quotables follow below.
On how the military knew about the egg:
They have satellites that have seen it.
On why the egg started shrieking and glowing deep orange:
The mini-dome was shrieking because there was harm coming to critical people. Barbie, Norrie, Joe, Julia, Angie, all of them were in trouble. The mini-dome was not happy that the people who are most important to the dome are in jail or in trouble. Barbie being arrested and saying, “Not guilty,” is interesting. It was reacting to the tide of events that were happening.
On what’s in store for the finale:
It’s a real showdown next week. You’re going to get a very stunning, startling revelation next week. Through someone we care and love deeply, we’ll find some answers. You’re going to see something unexpected involving a death in the finale.
