10 Comic-Con Reveals:
1. When asked why "Under the Dome" is breaking summertime ratings records, executive producer Neal Baer said it is about the characters, first and foremost: "Stephen King created brilliant characters in the novel that we adapted for the series. Once you can get the characters going, you can identify with them. They are in a place where they are trapped, and their secrets are coming out."
2. Series creator Brian K. Vaughan, who adapted King's novel for television, said friends told him to read the book because he was in it. "I got name-checked by [Joe] who writes comic books. It's been very surreal to have gone from being a pop-culture reference to getting to talk to those actual characters under our dome," Vaughan said. (The reference is on page 503 of the Kindle edition.)
3. Julia (Rachelle Lefevre) and Barbie (Mike Vogel) hold hands near the end of Episode 5. "One of our executive producers and the director of the episode, Jack Bender, said to us, ‘Guys, this is your Adam and Eve moment. It's just the two of you amidst all this destruction,'" Lefevre revealed.
4. Speaking of Barbie, Vogel likes the way the writers have handled the push-and-pull with his character. "There are a lot of accusations that are brought against Barbie, but people are going to have to look past a lot of the good he has done while he is here," Vogel said.
5. Yo pointed out the "interesting relationship" Big Jim (Dean Norris) has with his son, Junior (Alexander Koch). "We learn a lot more about Junior, and his deceased mother comes into play," Norris said.
6. When asked about the stockpiling of propane, Baer replied that all these secrets will be revealed this season: "We'll find out what Big Jim's relationship really was with the propane and Coggins. There will be some mysterious women coming to town. They are not from the town; they were trapped under the dome. There are 2,000 people there, some you haven't met yet."
7. In Episode 7, viewers will see how deep the dome really goes.
8. Baer also said the Season 1 DVD release is scheduled for November 5, adding, "You can see all the Easter eggs we laid out in the show."
9. The cast is shooting the season finale right now, which will end with a cliffhanger.
10. The death of Jeff Fahey's character proves that no one on the show is safe.
