Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Linda Esquivel touches the dome, she wore her walkie-talkie, which didn't explode (like Duke's pacemaker, Junior's flashlight, etc). (00:15:35)


Correction: Duke's pacemaker and Junior's flashlight were both 'attached' to their bodies (in Duke's chest, and in Jr's hand). Linda's walkie was not attached to her body (skin or flesh or muscle).


The Red Door - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Pauline enters the dome through the lake, her hair and whole body is wet, when she enters the house her hair is dry and styled.

Correction: All 4 of them were equally wet getting out of the lake; and all 4 of them were dry when they next appeared in the story - which could have been an hour or more later, depending on how far they had to walk.


Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When the dome first comes down a cow is split in half. If you look at the split side of the cow which is outside the dome, the entire cow is just a piece of red meat. There are no entrails or organs showing.


Correction: It's not just red meat and there are entrails and organs. However, the Dome cut all the blood vessels, so everything is covered in blood, giving it the complete red look.


Heads Will Roll - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Barbie, the girl cop, Big Jim and Junior are by the dome wall, all their gear and the cars fly off and hit the dome wall due to magnetism. Barbie and Big Jim both have on belts and watches that remain unaffected by the dome's magnetism, despite the fact that the handcuffs that were also around Barbie's wrists dragged him towards the dome wall.


Correction: Not all metals are magnetic. Therefore, if the watches or belt buckles weren't affected it's simply because they weren't magnetic.


Show generally

Corrected entry: In one episode the water tower is damaged and everyone is up in arms about dying of thirst. There is talk about Artesian wells that "might" be able to produce again. They try to catch every drop of rain water in various containers. In a later episode a woman drowns in a fairly large lake.

Correction: Clearly you missed the part in the same episode where they explain that the lake has large amounts of methane killing all the fishes and making the water undrinkable.

Correction: It was shown in the first episode that air (and wind) could enter the dome, but at a much reduced rate. The dome is not windproof, or impervious to air, otherwise the town would have suffocated before long.

Correction: The airplane was inside the dome when it crashed.

Let the Games Begin - S1-E10

Corrected entry: A few episodes earlier there was a gunfight over Ollie Densmore's water, but in this episode we find out that there is a freshwater lake under the dome.

Correction: Fresh water doesn't mean drinkable water. A lot of lake water is polluted by boat motor exhaust (and we see Big Jim, for one, using a boat and motor), flora or fauna, or something like in the Valley I live in, selenium or other minerals which, in too high concentrations, are detrimental to health. Long story short, the lake water would likely have to be treated to be drinkable, and we aren't shown whether there is a water treatment facility in Chester's Mill.


Curtains - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the start, the camera pans out to see the dome now covered in a layer of black. Outside of the dome you can see nice green fields, a small forest area, little houses and everything looks rosy. However a few episodes back the military launched a MOAB (mother of all bombs) and and the surrounding area was wiped out completely. (00:05:50)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The entire left side of the dome is where the bomb blew up. Now if you watch back when the bomb hit the dome, picture the lake being to the north on the map. When Joe and Norrie were looking for Ange, and they were on the bench when the bomb hit, SW in the scene is a pretty close point to when they show the aerial shots of the dome.
