‘Under The Dome’ season 2, episode 3 airs tonight: When it rains, it pours

The citizens of Chester’s Mill are battling with nature and each other, in an effort to survive life under the dome.

Where we left off in the last episode:

Last week, Big Jim had turned over a new leaf after nearly sacrificing himself to the dome, and the townspeople are now following after him like the pied piper. Poor Junior discovered Angie’s body, and had a falling out with his father, who suspected him of having committed the crime. Junior returned the accusations, and tried to find proof of his father’s guilt. His suspicion then turned to the mysterious Lake Girl, who was nearly on the receiving end of a bullet from a distraught Joe McAllister. Julia and Sam discovered the killer was a man, which is not good news for Junior, who’s started to suspect he killed Angie in a drunken blackout. Rebecca investigated a new butterfly infestation, and destroyed some crops to get rid of them. But she soon realized the butterflies weren’t the problem: There are too many people stuck under the dome in Chester’s Mill, and not enough resources.
