"Ever since, my greatest fear is dying young. But my point is, after my fall, I should have been scared out of my mind. But I didn't feel anything because of the pain meds. And then when the pills wear off, I remember how afraid I am. And I'm me again."
—Hunter to Joe and Norrie[src]

Hunter May is a supporting character in CBS' Under the Dome. He is a hacker that hacked into Aktaion Energy's files, making them hire him to prevent other hackers from getting into their system. He goes through the red door with Barbie, Pauline, Sam and Lyle and finds himself trapped under the dome with the residents of Chester's Mill.

Before the Dome[]

When he was younger, Hunter and his mom were in a car crash and he watched as she bled out in front of him. Ever since he's had a fear of dying.

Some time before the dome came down, Hunter was a hacker that hacked into Aktion Energy's files, making them want to hire him to prevent other hackers from getting into their system.

Under the Dome[]

Season 2[]


Hunter is first seen as he looks through his cameras and sees Barbie. He can't believe that Barbie had somehow gotten out of the dome, so he tails him and is eventually caught by him. Hunter explains himself and tells Barbie that his father changed the email sent to Julia. To prove this he gets Barbie to insert a disk drive, which allows Hunter to hack into Don's computer. Hunter shows Barbie the edited email sent by Don.

Later on, Don leads Barbie into Aktion Energy's server room to send another message to Julia. When he enters the room he discovers that Hunter works for his father. Barbie is shocked and after Hunter leaves, Barbie tackles him. Barbie tells him that he wants him to get him to the dome and that if he doesn't, he'll tell the police that he hacked into Aktion Energy's files. Hunter, without a choice works his magic and gets Barbie access to the dome by giving him a fake identity as a radiation specialist.

Hunter says all he has is Pauline and follows them back into the dome. As Hunter marvels at being in Chester's Mill, Sam tells him to "buckle up" because "it's about to get weirder".

"The Fall"[]

Hunter talks with Joe and Norrie about figuring out a way to track down the egg. They come up with an idea to build a tracker using a radar gun and other parts in the police station.

Later, Hunter watches as Big Jim forces Joe and Norrie down into the tunnels with the egg. Hunter helps Norrie out of the tunnel after she slips and nearly falls.

Later, after the townspeople are all inside the school, Hunter comes in with frostbite.

After Norrie begins to become worried over the well being of her friend Melanie, she storms off and Hunter goes after her. While he's out Joe goes through his things and discovers that Hunter is working with people outside the dome who want the egg.

Hunter confesses to Barbie and Julia that he was working for Don when he came into the dome. Barbie immediately shoves Hunter numerous times until Norrie tells him that he really is on their side.
