All the spoilers? Hopefully others will fill in more of the story for you. I missed one show; but, here's a brief run-down on that councilman who
seems to be the center, arch-villain of the show on TV. If there's any drug-dealing going on, I missed that. So, a few spoilers here.
1st show we find out he and others are involved with some propane storage deal and that they KNEW something and that they CONSPIRED something or other
with the propane hoarding. The Chief of Police who had a pace-maker (brother of the good girl cop) was threatened by the councilman when he wanted to
tell the town about whatever the hoarding secret was. Councilman said an accident would happen to his ticker. An accident DID happen to his ticker,
the glass wall shorted it out. (This was a 'foreshadowing' story-telling device.)
Another show, a crazy preaching guy who was in on the secret was hearing "MOAB" in his hearing aide. As everybody on ATS knows, that's
Mother-of-all-Bombs, but, to the preaching guy it meant a biblical city and he was doing the end-of-the-world stereotypical, evangelizing. He had
changed his ways so to speak and wanted to tell the town about the secret. The councilman didn't want the secret told and flat out murdered the
preaching dude by shoving his ear against the glass wall. They knew full well by this time that the wall would kill peeps with electrical devices.
The councilman cold-blooded killed the crazy preaching dude and walked away without a hint of remorse or guilt.
The councilman's son is as evil and crazy as his father; but, in a different way. The son had abducted the apple-of-his eye and had her locked
prisoner in the family fallout shelter, ankle-chained to the bed. The councilman found the girl in the basement shelter and left her locked inside
when she told him that his son had put her there.
Well, during that later MOAB show - where the US nukes the glass-like dome (which isn't glass by the way because water goes through the wall) ...
China had been pressuring the US, thinking we had some new dangerous technology. The dome was disturbing butterfly (and other creatures)
electro-magnetic sense used for navigation. So, the dome was a threat to the outside as well as those inside. Anyway, when it was time for the bomb
to go off, the townspeople went into a huge underground area (makeshift shelter) and the councilman released the girl prisoner ONLY because he thought
it was the end of the world for their town inside the dome. The nuke didn't affect the dome at all though.
Last night's show - there's this redneck,suburban farmer who owns all the town's water source. In a previous show, they saw the fish dead in the
river because of a methane release when the dome "came down." So, it had been determined that this farmer's artesian well was the only water source
left - even though rain works okay in the town. So, the councilman takes volunteers up to take the farmer's land and water using immenent domain
by-laws to grow veggies for the town. Barbi on the other hand, with some questions of the good lady cop, had determined there had once been more
artesian wells in the town, and a town reservoir as well. All had dried up when the redneck farmer dug his own well though. So, Barbi presented his
idea to the councilman - to blow up the redneck's well and that would re-divert all the city water back to the way it USED to be naturally. The
councilman thought it was risky to blowup the only remaining water-source and he had equally as good a point as Barbi. So, BOTH plans were enacted
simultaneously; but, the councilman didn't know Barbi was blowing up the waterwell. The councilman took armed locals up there and got 3 of them killed
in a firefight. Two on the farmer's side were killed too. But, in the end, Barbi's trick worked and the city reservoir was filled again.
Somebody else can tell you about the egg stories.
