The Grim Reaper will be visiting Chester's Mill again soon!
When Under the Dome's cast and executive producer Neal Baer hit Comic-Con on Thursday, they came prepared with some devastating scoop: Of the show's remaining characters, not everyone will survive the sophomore season.
"We kept the body count down at the beginning of the season so we can rev it up for the end," Baer told the crowd after screening a surprisingly spoiler-y clip that showed one more possibly falling to their death.
In the clip—spoiler alert!—Barbie, Julia, and Rebecca (a.k.a. Rebecca the Science Teacher) have discovered a giant cavern with a pitch-black tunnel. When Barbie begins to rappel down, he's pulled by some mysterious force until he must cut himself free to prevent Julia from being pulled in with him. But is Barbie really dead?
"One of our characters might get out of the dome this season," Baer said, heavily insinuating that Barbie won't actually fall (heh) victim to the dome, but instead will make his way out.
Plus, even if you die on the show, that doesn't mean you can't come back. Baer teased that at least one of Season 2's early victims—either Angie or Officer Linda—will return soon. "When you're dead, you're dead," Baer said. "But that doesn't mean you can't be an avatar and come back at some point." Speaking of Angie, Baer promised that "we'll definitely find out what's in that locker this year." Whatever it is, Sam probably doesn't want anyone to find it, considering he appears to be Angie's killer!
As for the future of the series, Baer noted that the introduction of the tunnels opens up a wealth of new story avenues. "We've set it up so we can keep going," Baer said of the Season 2 finale. "We have plenty of stories left to tell."
Do you want Under the Dome to return for a third season? Who do you think will die? And who do you think SHOULD die?
