: Mike Vogel
: Barbie is the protagonist, a Chester's Mill outsider who has a pre-novel-starting-point history with Junior Rennie and his cohorts, after Angie makes a pass at him and he turns her down, so she tells Junior and his friends that Barbie attacked her and they go after Barbie for revenge.
Once the dome is down, Big Jim takes great pains to make sure Barbie is blamed for a lot of bad stuff that happens once the dome comes down.
: Barbie does have a military background, like the book, though it seems as though he's brand-new to town -- Julia doesn't know who he is -- and it doesn't seem like he works at Rose's diner.
Further, we see him burying Julia's husband in the opening frames, which is a mystery the show will explore all season
. Did Barbie kill him? We don't know, but he seemed to be having a rather heated phone conversation about someone named "Smith" when the dome descended. Was he talking about Peter Shumway?
