Rachelle Lefevre previews ‘Under the Dome’ season 2 finale

Fox’s hit show Under the Dome is wrapping up season 2 and star Rachelle Lefevre is giving some answers to the fans’ bigger questions.

Lefevre plays Julia, who was revealed to be “the Monarch” but little has been made of that during season 2, so Rachelle clarifies this topic.

Rachelle Lefevre discusses “Under the Dome”

“You’ll hear about it again. It’s not that it didn’t happen; of course it’s still relevant. But it definitely took a backseat when Melanie got introduced. Julia is the monarch now in the present time, but then Melanie comes back, who essentially seems like the monarch of her time, right?” she says during the TV Line interview.

“Melanie (Grace Victoria Cox) has all the same feelings that Julia has. She feels connected to the egg, but she can’t explain it. She wants to protect it; she doesn’t know why. She’s physically connected to it, in the opposite way that I am, which is kind of interesting. When bad things happen to the egg or when she’s separated from it, her health fails, whereas my character has been shot, impaled… [Laughs]…. stabbed in the ribcage to make a puncture-hole for air in her chest cavity. And somehow, against all physical odds, I’m sort of OK. And so, the implication from the end of last season is that my connection to the dome and the egg are somehow making me stronger. It’s an interesting juxtaposition between how her connection to the egg makes her vulnerable and mine makes me stronger.”

Julia has battled Rebecca (Karla Crome) and her assertions through science.

“One of the things that’s been really tricky about that — and it’s been a challenge to play — is it’s not that Julia as a character is suddenly all faith-based. When you first meet her in the series premiere, she’s a journalist, she’s fact-based, she’s very pragmatic. I don’t think that’s gone anywhere,” Rachelle says in the Sept. 19 interview.

“She’s had these feelings — I joke on set and I call them my Spidey senses. Whenever I have a scene where I have to say what the dome wants or I have to talk about the dome trying to protect us, I always go, “My Spidey senses are tingling!” [Laughs] She’s still very aware of her surroundings, and it is still fact-based in a way. It’s just that the fact of the matter is she has these feelings and these instincts she can’t explain. So, her conclusion is, “It must be that there’s something else going on that we don’t understand.” Which is not the same as going, “We shouldn’t ask questions, we don’t understand, we don’t have answers.” We might one day have answers about the dome. We might know why I feel connected to it. We might know why I have instincts that it’s going to protect us. But at this point, she is just going on faith. [Pause] Not that I think about it a lot. [Laughs]”
