Dropped a Bridge on Him: Many of the characters who die, including Andrea Grinnell. King spent a decent amount of time developing her character, what with her coming to grips with taking care of Aidan and Alice, and even deciding that she'd give them up to their original parents, if they were still alive.
On paper, this isn't as bad until you take into account that she only went to the town meeting because Aidan and Alice begged her to take them to it, resulting in them getting a front-row seat for her death. The worst part about it is that it came out of nowhere, as she's murdered for absolutely no good reason. Would double as a Crowning Moment of Sadness if the reaction period wasn't so brief.
See Decoy Antagonist above. Due to the Dead: Even though Chef left his wife, Sammy, became a meth addict and went completely insane, he still considered his duty to bury her body. While it doesn't rack up the body-count of some of King's apocalyptic stories, the book wipes out almost the entire town's population, plus all the passengers on a jumbo jet. Junior has a brain tumor. Also his father has a heart condition. For given values of 'evil', but neither side is really good: Big Jim Rennie sends eleven of his cops over to the Holy Redeemer church to take out Chef and Andy Sanders, and take possession of the propane stored there.
Chef and Andy, who knew Big Jim would send men after them eventually, were lying in wait, and they kill every last one of the cops, except the one who really deserved it, Melvin Searles, who raped Sammy Bushey, who was Chef's wife back when he was still Phil Bushey and relatively sane. However, Melvin does buy it when Andy and Chef blow the stored propane and pull a Taking You with Me on the entire town.17 WAYS TO DUMP YOUR GIRLFRIEND (feat. dodie)
Likewise, the first selectman Andy Sanders is one for George W. In a way, Junior Rennie could be one for Uday Hussein. Phil "Chef" Bushey is a human version of Gollum. Meth is his One Ring. Likewise, American readers could easily compare him to Donald Trump.

While he's the town's first selectmen, technically outranking Big Jim Rennie, he's actually completely under Rennie's control. After reaching his Despair Event Horizonhe meets Chef, and starts blindly following him, even to death. The death of Rory Dinsmore and also a nasty side effect of Junior Rennie's brain tumor. The guy's practically pure evil and selfishness down to his core, but he still refuses to swear, drink, or take the Lord's name in vain.
His so-called "refusal to swear" is more than a little hypocritical, considering all he does is swap swear words with less offensive varieties; such as calling a woman he doesn't like a "rhymes-with-witch. Julia Shumway is described as a Republican, although she drives a hybrid car, attends the liberal church, and never expresses any sort of conservative opinion. Dale Barbara often says things like, "Are you sure you're a Republican?
Which would just be a sign of Barbie's own personal biases, except that she never once responds to him with a coherent reason why she is one.
It's clear some politics is slipping in on King's part. This has more to do with the distinction between conservative and Republican. Julia Shumway is portrayed as conservative in a number of ways one humorous example is her thought on what her historical hero's reaction would be to a world where civilians were required by law to pick up after their pet's pooand she admits to having voted for Rennie when he was "saner" because she liked what he campaigned on.
It's only when he shows his true colors as a power-hungry sociopath that she starts expressing more "liberal" misgivings about the abuses of power going on. And it is New England. Big Jim is this to his son Junior. Lester Coggins, pastor of the Christ the Holy Redeemer church. When you consider other characters like this in Stephen King novels like Mrs. Carmody of The Mist or Margaret White of Carrieyou might think he'd end up being a problem for the more reasonable inhabitants of Chester's Mill.
He turns out to be a Red Herringthough, as he gets killed by Big Jim less than a third of the way through the book, when he tells Jim he feels that he must confess to the congregation that they've been running a meth lab. When Mel Searles sees Chef and Andy kiss, he yells: No, wait, I got a better idea!

Get a room in hell! Andrea Grinnell beats her painkiller addiction that way. Rusty advises her against that, telling her that she'll suffer greatly and will have seizures, which does happen. The government does everything in its power to free the town of Chester's Mill from its predicament. This includes firing a cruise missile at the invisible dome surrounding the town, then a second missile when the first one fails, using specially modified acid which can melt through two miles of bedrock, despite the possibility that it could set the dome on fire, and then attempting to use a 'pencil nuke', only to have it melt down and kill fifteen people before it could be used.
The government continues trying to build a second pencil nuke, but by that point, things are so bad they finally decide they don't have time. Junior of all people experiences this, when he rescues the Appleton children.
As a consequence, protecting them even becomes his final goal in life after killing Barbie and his dad, that is —although by the time he decides on this, he's gone completely mad and the safest place for the children would be as far away from Junior as possible. When Andy is about to poison himself, he thinks that he will "just lie down on the bed, close his eyes, and then good night, sweet pharmacist, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
Big Jim Rennie all the cotton-pickin' way. Subverted; when things get really bad, he does rattle off a couple swears, although only one or two serious ones. Junior has these whenever his migraines are particularly bad; this is the first clue that his "migraines" may be something more.
Big Jim Rennie presumably hallucinates that the various people he's killed over the course of the novel have come back to haunt him.
Possibly with Lester Coggins who hears the voice of God. However since what the voice prophesies actually happens possibly it's the real thing. Rusty and Linda Everett. Also the police chief and his wife. Have You Told Anyone Else?

The number of times the plot relies on the only character that knows something confronting the perpetrator without a backup plan or weapon is staggering. Who would have guessed the "old hippy" English professor, Thurston, would turn out to be the most capable medic in town? The relationship between Dodie Sanders and Sammy Bushey is referred to in conversation and in Dodie's thoughts as "you-know" and as "kid stuff" that they should have grown out of by now.
Sammy has been married and has a baby, but it's also implied that many people in town know she has inclinations towards the other team; Dodie mentally equates her lesbian experiences with other immature and possibly immoral things she has a weakness for, such as smoking weed. The whole relationship is quickly obscured when Dodie is killed very early on.
Sammy later kills herself, which could make this a case of Bury Your Gays if almost everyone in the town didn't also eventually die. Carter eventually decides to kill Rennie because of Rennie's ungrateful behavior and because he feels that he'll live longer if Big Jim isn't alive to breathe his share of the air in the shelterbut he makes the mistake of turning off the lights and Rennie kills him.
However, this leaves Big Jim alone in the shelter, and he's unable to get the propane tank changed on his own. They play a game of 'Are They A Twin? Also, Niki and Sammy catch up with George Ezra and talk about what it's like to work with their siblings.
