TV Goodness had the pleasure of participating in the Under the Dome press room at this year’s Comic-Con. We spoke to the producers and actors about the success of the show, heard their theories about the Dome  and got some really great intel on the rest of the season. Rachelle Lefevre, Mike Vogel and Dean Norris preview what’s to come.

From CBS:

The Chester’s Mill residents receive an unexpected visit from their loved ones on the other side. Meanwhile, the community braces for a threat from outside the Dome.

Tell us what’s coming up for each of your characters in the next few episodes and towards the end of the season.

Rachelle Lefevre: “In the beginning episodes Julia’s really – rightfully so, I think – consumed with her personal life and getting answers there and finding out the truth about what’s closest to home. [She] is obviously curious like everyone else about the Dome and wants to understand it but is really sort of removed in a way. She has her own demons to figure out and her own relationships to untangle and then as the series goes on she starts to get some answers. I think she has a shift in focus and starts to realize that they might be in here for quite a while and civilization matters. [She] starts to become more involved in the community as a whole and starts to realize that she’s not just a visitor in Chester’s Mill. She’s now home for good potentially and so starts to get more involved with the Dome and Chester’s Mill as a whole.

Mike Vogel: “I think Barbie deals with the same issues and finds himself in this place under rather suspicious reasons initially and after it becomes clear to him that there’s no getting out of here right now he has to find a way to function and exist within that. And with that comes a lot of navigating some difficult waters with [Julia] and with some of the actions he’s engaged in there. But also there’s some interesting relationships and scenarios that begin to reveal themselves with Big Jim and Junior. The lines get a lot more clear for where everyone stands and that action picks up and heightens when we introduce the Dome as a big – officially the Dome is just kind of like a device. It’s sealed a lot of people in and you think, ‘Ok we’re gonna see a bunch of people in chaos as they react.’ But I think as the episodes progress you’ll see the Dome takes on a life of its own and becomes a huge part of the action.

Dean Norris: “Big Jim sees the Dome as the opportunity to realize his dictatorial ambitions. A lot of people sing in the shower. I think Big Jim would recite Churchill speeches and hope one day he’d get his shot. He thinks he’s doing something that’s right for the town and at times he does. He helps to save elements of the town, helps prevent certain crises and things like that. But at the end of the day he’s figuring out ways to consolidate his power. That’s what he’s all about.”

Here’s a preview of the episode:

 

Under the Dome airs Mondays at 10/9c on CBS.
