I'm really happy with that reveal. I was not excited to have to wait 7-8 episodes for that to happen per usual. Gives me hope for the season since the rest of the episode fell pretty flat for me. If this was season 4 I might feel differently but the show has gotten so laughably bad 95% of the time that everything awesome feels a little too late to have a huge impact (so far).
It seems pretty huge that Chef is not in fact a chef at all, and that the radio station he works at is not Christian based. And incriminating Duke Perkins? How does that work? Julia being married and Rusty Everret being stuck outside the Dome (which you cannot hear through) do not yet make sense.
Hopefully it will be good. I guess they are going with a different ending.
