In a flashback, we learn that Barbie killed Julia Shumway's husband trying to collect a debt. Sheriff Howard Perkins' pacemaker exploded after he touched the dome wall. Big Jim and Rev. Lester Coggins spend their time ensuring their secret doesn't come out. Coggins searches the dead sheriff's house for anything incriminating them but makes a mess of it and sets the house on fire. With the fire department pumper truck outside the dome, there's danger of fire engulfing the entire town. Angie is still a prisoner in the underground shelter and the unstable Junior confronts Barbie convinced Angie slept with him. Joe McAlister estimates that the dome covers an area 10 miles across and some of the residents try to tunnel under it.
