TV Review: Twin Peaks: The Return Part 14 (dir by David Lynch)


 

Hi, everyone!

Obviously, I’m running behind this week.  Usually, I post my recap of the latest episode of Twin Peaks: The Return within a few hours of the episode’s premiere.  This week, I’m a day behind and I apologize.  I could give you all sorts of excuses as to why I’m running behind but I won’t waste your time with that.  Instead, I’ll simply quote Laura Dern from Blue Velvet: “It’s a strange world, isn’t it?”

Fortunately, the Trashfilm Guru is a lot more dependable than I am.  Check out his thoughts on Part 14 by clicking here!

Anyway, speaking of strange worlds…

Part 14 opens with Gordon Cole (David Lynch) in South Dakota, calling Sheriff Truman (Robert Forster) in Twin Peaks.  While I know some people are frustrated with any episode that doesn’t open with Kyle MacLachlan either staring blankly at Janey-E or killing someone, I have to say that I always feel somewhat comforted when Gordon shows up.  Some of that is because Gordon is a lot how I imagine David Lynch to be in real life, right down to the corny jokes and the earnest encouragement.  However, there’s also the fact that Lynch has grown tremendously as an actor.  If you watch the original Twin Peaks, Cole comes across as largely being a one-joke character.  Sometimes it’s funny and sometimes, it’s not.  However, in the revival, Gordon has emerged as one of the most compelling characters around.

Anyway, Truman lets Gordon know about the pages from Laura’s diary that were found earlier and mentions that the pages indicate that there are “two Coopers.”  Gordon thanks him for the information and wishes all the best to both of the Truman brothers.

Meanwhile, Albert (Miguel Ferrer) tells Tammy (Chrysta Bell) about the very first blue rose case.  It involved a murder in Washington, the death of a woman named Lois Duffy.  Lois’s murder was witnessed by Cole and Philip Jeffries.  As Albert tells it, Lois mentioned “blue roses” as she died.  Her body then vanished.  A woman, who looked exactly like Lois Duffy and who claimed to be Lois Duffy, was arrested for the murder but later hung herself in her cell.  Tammy figures out that blue roses are not natural, they do not occur in nature.  The dying woman was not a natural thing.

Cole steps into the room, announcing that he’s “got it.”  After Cole spends a while flinching at the sound of a particularly aggressive window washer doing his job, they are joined by Diane (Laura Dern).  Diane lights a cigarette and tells everyone to fuck off.  Typical Diane.

Cole asks Diane about the last time she saw Cooper and whether he mentioned Major Briggs.  Diane replies that she doesn’t want to talk about that night but she does eventually say that Cooper did mention Briggs.  Albert tells her about Briggs’s death in the fire and the subsequent discovery of her headless body in South Dakota.  He also mentions that a ring was found in Briggs stomach, a ring with an inscription that indicates that it was a gift to Dougie from Janey-E.  A shocked Diane says that Janey-E is her estranged half-sister.

OH MY GOD!!!!!

Gordon calls the Las Vegas FBI office and tells Special Agent Headley (Jay R. Ferguson) that he wants Douglas Jones and Janey-E to be picked up on suspicion of having been involved with a double murder.  Headley is quite enthusiastic about tracking Dougie down.  As he yells at a subordinate, “THIS IS WHAT WE DO IN THE FBI!”

Back in South Dakota, Diane leaves the room.  Cole tells Albert and Tammy about Sheriff Truman and the Two Coopers.

“And last night,” Cole continues, “I had another Monica Bellucci dream.”

In the dream, Gordon was in Paris on a case.  He met with Monica Bellucci (who plays herself) at a cafe.  Cole says that Cooper was at the cafe but he couldn’t see his face.  Monica, Cole, and Monica’s friends had coffee.  Monica said, “We’re like the dreamer who dreams and then lives inside the dream….but, who is the dreamer?”

In the dream, Monica told Cole to look over his shoulder.  Cole did so and he saw a younger version of himself.  Cole watched as the younger version of himself talked to Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) about a dream that Cooper had.  Suddenly, Phillip Jeffries (David Bowie, seen in archive footage from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me) entered the office and pointed at Cooper.

“Who do you think that is!?” Jeffries said.

Back in the present, Cole says, “This has given me a lot to think about.”

(This entire sequence — from Cole calling Truman to Albert and Tammy talking to Cole’s dream — is absolutely brilliant and among the best work that Lynch has ever done as a director and an actor.)

Meanwhile, at the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Department, Andy (Harry Goaz), Hawk (Michael Horse), and Boddy (Dana Ashbrook) are getting ready to go hiking to the place where Major Briggs used to take Bobby as a boy.  But first, they arrest everyone’s least favorite corrupt asshole, Deputy Chad (John Pirruccello).

In the woods, while a faint electrical hum is heard in the background, Truman, Andy, Hawk, and Bobby make their way to the location that they were given in Briggs’s note.  They find Naido (Nae Yuuki), a naked woman with no eyes, lying at the base of a tree.  As Andy, the most kind-hearted of the group, rushes over to the help her, a vortex appears in the sky above him.

Suddenly, Andy’s siting in the same black-and-white room where this season began.  Across from him is the Giant (Carel Struycken).

“I am the Fireman,” the Giant says.

Andy has visions of … well, of the series so far.  He sees the dark figures at the gas station.  He sees the Woodsman demanding, “Gotta light?”  He sees Laura Palmer, with angels on either side of her.  He sees Cooper and the Doppelganger. He sees himself leading Lucy into the lobby of the sheriff’s department.  He sees electrical pole #6, the same pole in front of which Richard Horne ran over that little boy.

Suddenly, Andy is back in the woods.  He is carrying Naido and he seems very confident of what needs to be done.  “We have to get her off the mountain,” Andy says, “She is very important.  There are people who want her dead.  She’s fine physically.  If we put her in a cell, she’ll be safe.  Don’t tell anybody about this.”

(Of course, no one mentions that Naido doesn’t have any eyes.)

Back at the sheriff’s department, Lucy gives Naido some old pajamas and says she hopes they’re okay.  Naido remains silent as Andy locks her up in a cell.  After Andy and Lucy leave, a drunk in another cell starts to make monkey noises while the recently incarcerated Chad yells at him to shut up.  Suddenly, Naido starts to softly murmur in her cell.

“It’s a fucking nuthouse!” Chad says.

“Fucking nuthouse,” the drunk replies, repeating Chad’s words in a way that reminded me of the way Dougie communicates with people in Vegas.

As Chad lies down in his cell, we see that the drunk is bleeding and a pool of blood is forming at his feet.

At the Great Northern, security guard James Hurley (James Marshall) is talking to another guard, Freddie Sykes (Jake Wardle).  Freddie is originally from the UK and always wears a glove over his left hand.  It’s James birthday and all he wants is for Freddie to explain why he always wears the glove.

Freddie explains that he can’t take the glove off.  He tried once and his hand started bleeding.  Freddie explains that one night, in London, he was sucked up into a vortex.  A giant called The Fireman told him to go to a hardware store, find an open package of gloves, and put on only one glove.  The glove gives Freddie super strength, which he discovered when he broke the neck of a man trying to prevent him from taking the glove.  It was only after apparently killing this man that Freddie remembered that the Giant also told him to move to Twin Peaks, Washington.  “There,” Freddie says the Giant told him, “you’ll find your destiny.”

James thanks Freddie for the story and then goes to check on the hotel’s furnace.  As he does so, he hears an electrical hum, much like the one that was previously heard in Ben Horne’s office.

Meanwhile, Sarah Palmer (Grace Zabriskie) walks up to a sleazy bar.  As she approaches, we hear the same electrical sound that we previously heard while Truman and the deputies were walking through the woods.  Inside the bar, Sarah is harassed by a drunk who just won’t take no for an answer.  So, Sarah opens her face, revealing the darkness underneath the human surface.

“Do you really want to fuck with this?” she asks, before closing her face and then biting the man’s neck and ripping out his throat…

OH MY GOD!!!!!

Sarah’s possessed!  Well, we already knew that Sarah had psychic powers but … but… but….

Seriously, oh my God!

That said, I don’t blame Sarah.  That guy was a jerk.  We’ve all been there.

At the Roadhouse, two women — Megan (Shane Lynch) and Sophie (Emily Stofle) — talk about getting high, stealing, avoiding the nut house, and a missing acquaintance named Billy.  Megan says that, when she last saw Billy, he was storming in and out of her kitchen, with blood coming from his nose.  It is also revealed that Megan’s mom is named Tina.  If all these names sound familiar, it’s because we already know that Audrey Horne has been 1) having an affair with Billy and 2) has a friend named Tina.

And so concludes a very intriguing episode of Twin Peaks: The Return.

To recap: Janey-E is Diane’s half-sister. The Fireman is sending people to Twin Peaks.  And Billy and Tina actually do exist and aren’t just figments of Audrey’s imagination.

With only 4 episodes left, who knows where all of this is going to lead…

22 Initial Thoughts on Twin Peaks: The Return Part 14 (dir by David Lynch)


Hi, everyone!  Obviously I’m getting a little bit of  late start on Twin Peaks tonight.  As always, these are just my initial thoughts.  A full recap will show up either tonight or tomorrow.  (Probably tomorrow because I’m getting a late start…)

  1. Apparently, Showtime is not planning on doing any further seasons of Twin Peaks.  They used Twin Peaks to meet their quota of new subscribers and now they can concentrate on stuff like I’m Dying Up Here.
  2. Yay!  Gordon’s on the phone!
  3. I love David Lynch’s performance as Gordon Cole.  I have to admit that, whenever I imagine what David Lynch is like in real life, I always imagine him telling corny jokes and adjusting a hearing aide.
  4. Oh my God!  Diane’s related to Janey-E!
  5. Diane, how can you hate your sister?  Sisters are the best!
  6. Monica Bellucci?
  7. Ha!  Fuck you, Chad!  Corrupt cops are the worst.
  8. So, just to make sure that I understand … Monica Bellucci is some sort of supernatural being?
  9. The blogger known as Jedadiah Leland just assured me that she is.
  10. Agck!  I find the lack of eyes to be disturbing.
  11. Oh my God!  Of all the people to take this trip, why Deputy Andy?
  12. “Got a light?”  No, you bastard!  Get outta here and leave Andy alone!
  13. Andy’s giving orders!  It’s about time.
  14. It’s sweet that Lucy is concerned about whether the eyeless woman likes the pajamas.
  15. James Hurley is a security guard now?  And his colleague know him as Jimmy?
  16. Okay, so where has the suddenly important Freddie Sykes been hiding all this time?
  17. This guy at the bar is bothering Sarah.  He says it’s a free country.  What a jerk,  I hope she tells him off…
  18. Oh my God, she just took off her face…
  19. OH MY GOD, SHE JUST RIPPED OUT HIS FUCKING THROAT!
  20. Go, Sarah!
  21. Hey, the guy was a jerk.
  22. “Sure is a mystery, huh?”

It is happening again.

TV Review: Twin Peaks: The Return Part 13 (dir by David Lynch)


There are only five hours left in Twin Peaks: The Return and yet, there are still many mysteries to be resolved.  Considering that this is a David Lynch production, it’s entirely possible and probably rather probable that a good deal of those mysteries will never be resolved.

That said, all of the disparate elements of Twin Peaks: The Return have slowly been coming together, providing evidence — if any was needed — that Lynch knows exactly what he’s doing.  In some ways, tonight’s episode was Twin Peaks at its most straightforward.  And yet, nothing can ever be totally straight forward when it comes to Twin Peaks.

We wouldn’t want it any other way.

Tonight’s episode begins with joyful music playing in Las Vegas.  As Anthony Sinclair (Tom Sizemore) watches from his office, the Mitchum Brothers (James Belushi and Robert Knepper) dance down the hallways.  The three ladies in pink are with them.  And so is … Dougie Jones (Kyle MacLachlan), the man who Anthony was supposed to trick the Mitchums into killing!

The Mitchums have come to see Bushnell Mullins (Don Murray) and they’ve brought him gifts, all to thank him for introducing them to Dougie and for helping them to make money off of that insurance claim.  “A wrong has been made right and the sun is shining bright!” Bradley Mitchum declares.

Meanwhile, in his office, Anthony calls Duncan Todd (Patrick Fischler) and tells him that Dougie is still alive.  Todd replies that it’s now Anthony’s responsibility to kill Dougie and he only had one day to do it, not the two days that he promised earlier.

The generosity of the Mitchums continues as both a new car and a jungle gym are delivered to Dougie’s house.  It’s quite a jungle gym as well.  It’s big, it’s lit up with neon, and everything about it just screams Vegas.  Sonny Jim (Pierce Gagnon) is quite happy.  So is Janey-E (Naomi Watts), which is good.  They deserve some happiness.

The next morning, in Montana, the evil Doppelganger Cooper arrives at a compound called The Farm.  Ray (George Griffith) has been hiding out at the Farm with Renzo (Derek Mears) and his men.  When they see the Doppelganger pull up, Ray comments that he killed the Doppelganger.  “You didn’t kill him too good, Ray,” Renzo replies.

Anyway, Ray volunteers to kill the Doppelganger a second time but it turns out that Renzo is something of an arm wrestling fanatic.  Renzo explains that if the Doppelganger can beat him, he’ll get control of the Farm and Renzo’s entire crew.  The only catch is that Renzo has never been defeated.  The Doppelganger says he doesn’t want the farm, he just wants Ray.

The arm wrestling goes about how you would imagine it would go — Renzo ends up getting his arm broken and then his face literally smashed in by one punch from the Doppelganger.  As for Ray, he confesses that it was Phillip Jeffries who hired him to kill the Doppelganger.  Ray explains that he never met Jeffries, he just talked to him on the phone.  Jeffries told Ray that the Doppelganger had something inside of him that “they” wanted.  (Killer BOB, perhaps?  BOB was seen directly inside of the Doppelganger during Part 8.) Ray holds up a ring that he was supposed to put on the Doppelganger’s finger.  Ray says that he got it from a prison guard right before they escaped.  The Doppelganger makes Ray put on the ring.  Ray then gives the Doppelganger a piece of paper with the coordinates that he says he got from Bill Hastings and his secretary (that would be Ruth Davenport).  The Doppelganger asks Ray where Phillip Jeffries is.  Ray says Philip is at a place called “The Dutchman’s.”  The Doppelganger proceeds to shoot Ray in the face.

And guess whose watching all of this unfold?  Richard Horne (Eamon Farren)!  Apparently, ever since fleeing Twin Peaks, Richard has been hiding out in Montana.  So, does that mean that the Farm and the late Renzo had a connection to Red?  If so, how is Red going to react to the Doppelganger killing Renzo and becoming The Farm’s new boss?  And does Richard looked so shocked because he never thought anyone would ever beat Renzo at arm wrestling (not to mention kill him) or is it because he realizes that the Doppelganger is probably his father?

Ray’s body appears inside the Black Lodge.  MIKE (Al Strobel) takes the ring and puts it on a marble table.

Back at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police HQ, something weird’s going on in the background.  We can hear a woman yelling as she apparently defecates on the floor.  She’s tased and screams, “I want to report a cop!”  Sitting in their office, the Fuscos aren’t too concerned.  It doesn’t even bother them when they receive a report that Dougie has the same fingerprints as both an escapee from a South Dakota prison and a missing FBI agent.  They laugh and throw the report away.

They barely notice as Anthony Sinclair wanders through the station, looking for Detective Clark (John Savage).  Clark is outside smoking a cigarette and he doesn’t appear to be very enthusiastic about the prospect of talking to Anthony.  Anthony asks Clark for the name of a good poison, one that would be undetectable.  Apparently, Clark also works for Duncan Todd.  Clark agrees to help Anthony get the poison.

In South Dakota, Chantal (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Hutch (Tim Roth) drive down the interstate and, as they enter Utah, discuss what it must be like to be a Mormon.

The next morning, after Janey-E drops him off at work, Dougie runs into Anthony.  A nervous Anthony offers to buy Dougie a cup of coffee at the pastry shop.  Since Dougie is obsessed with coffee, he agrees.  When Dougie gets distracted by a cheery pie in a display case and stands up to go stare at it, Anthony puts the poison in Dougie’s coffee.

When Dougie returns to the table, he is distracted by the dandruff on the back of Anthony’s suit.  Dougie places his hands on Anthony shoulders.  Mistaking this for a sign of friendship, Anthony breaks down into tears and shouts that he never meant to hurt anyone.  He pours out Dougie’s poisoned coffee.  Dougie responds by drinking Anthony’s coffee instead.

In Twin Peaks, at the Double R, Shelley (Madchen Amick) gets a call from Becky (Amanda Seyfried).  Becky’s in tears.  Steven, the man she tried to shoot, hasn’t come home in two days.

Back in Vegas, Anthony sits in Bushnell’s office and says that he’s come to confess.  Standing to the side, Dougie blankly repeats, “Confess.”  Anthony confesses to Bushnell that he’s been working for Duncan Todd and that he’s been lying to Bushnell for years.  Bushnell says that Dougie revealed all of this to him yesterday.  Bushnell asks if Anthony is prepared to testify against Duncan Todd.  Anthony says that he is.

Bushnell asks if Anthony is willing to testify “against the two cops that Dougie found.”

“He know about them too!?” Anthony says.

“Them too,” Dougie blankly repeats.

Anthony says he only wants to fix the mess that he made.  He says that Dougie saved his like.  “Thanks, Dougie!”

“Thank Dougie,” Dougie says.

In tears, Anthony does just that.

At the Double R, Norma (Peggy Lipton) has a meeting with the somewhat oily Walter Lawford (Grant Goodeve).  Apparently, Norma’s Double R is a franchise now.  Walter says that there are several profitable locations in Washington State but Norma is concerned that those locations are using inferior ingredients.  Walter argues that it makes good business sense to cut costs.  This entire scene, of course, feels like Lynch’s commentary on the studio executives who constantly tried to interfere with Twin Peaks the first time around.

Norma and Walter are apparently a couple, as well.  As they talk, they are watched by both Deputy Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook) and Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill), Norma’s former (?) lover and the husband of Nadine (Wendy Robie).

Speaking of Nadine, she is leaving her silent drape store when who should show up but Dr. Jacoby (Russ Tamblyn)!  As we’ve already seen, Nadine is a huge fan of Jacoby’s podcast.  She even has her own golden shovel hanging in the window of her store.  Dr. Jacoby says that the last time he saw Nadine, she was on her hands and knees, looking for a potato.

At the Palmer House, Sarah (Grace Zabrikie) is drunk and watching a boxing match.  Or, actually, I should say that she’s watching 30 second of a boxing match on a continious loop.  The announcer says, several times: “Oh the right hand catches the big guy by the ear!  And he finally goes down, hanging on the ropes.  Oh, the gentleman asks if he’s okay.  Look like, uh, round number one and two on the way.  Now, it’s a boxing match again.”

Elsewhere, Audrey (Sherilyn Fenn) yells at Charlie (Clark Middleton).  An emotional Audrey says that she feels like she’s somewhere else, like she’s not sure who she is.  Charlie says, “This is Existentialism 101.” Audrey’s not amused and demands to know what she’s supposed to do if she can’t trust anyone and she’s not sure who she is.  Charlie replies that she’s supposed to go to the Roadhouse and look for Billy.  Audrey demands to know where the Roadhouse is.

“Are you going to stop playing games?” Charlie asks, “or am I going to have to end your story, too?”

Audrey starts to cry.

At the Roadhouse, none other than James Hurley (James Marshall) performs the song You and I.  Accompanying him are two backup singers who look like they could be Donna and Maddy.  Considering that the scene during the second season, in which James, Donna, and Maddy performed You And I, is regularly ridiculed by even the show’s biggest fans, you have to wonder if David Lynch is doing some deliberate trolling here.  Well, it does’t matter.  It’s a lovely song, one that perfectly captures the aching feeling of loss that runs through every minute of Twin Peaks: The Return.

At the gas station, Big Ed Hurley sits alone, staring at his gas pumps.

And that’s how Part 13 ends.

22 Initial Thoughts on Twin Peaks: The Return Part 13 (dir by David Lynch)


Because of Sharknado 5, I’m late in watching the latest episode of Twin Peaks.  Below, you’ll find my initial thoughts and then, as always, a full recap will be posted either later tonight or sometime tomorrow!

  1. Twin Peaks has been moved from 8 to 7 to make room for new episodes of Ray Donovan.  That was quite a shock for those of us who didn’t realize that Ray Donovan is still a thing.
  2. “A wrong has been made right and the sun is shining bright!”  I loved Jim Belushi’s delivery of that line.
  3. It seems appropriate that this episode, which featured the Mitchum Brothers, aired on Robert Mitchum’s 100th birthday.  As David Lynch is a self-described fan of film noir, I doubt that the last name is a coincidence.
  4. “You didn’t kill him too good, Ray.”  This episode is full of good lines.
  5. Arm wrestling?  You mean like in that Sylvester Stallone movie I reviewed a few years ago?
  6. If this show hasn’t already convinced you that Kyle MacLachlan is one of the best actors working today, nothing will.
  7. OH MY GOD, IS THAT RICHARD HORNE IN MONTANA!?
  8. Actually, I guess it would make sense that Richard would turn up in Montana.  I forgot that Montana is pretty much right next to Washington State.  In anything, Twin Peaks has proven that the North is one fucked up region.
  9. Yay, it’s the Fuscos!
  10. My favorite Fusco is Smiley Fusco.
  11. What was happening in the background of the Las Vegas Police Department?  The Fuscos didn’t seem to be too concerned about it.
  12. Tim Roth and Jennifer Jason Leigh discussing Mormons is everything.
  13. Quite a contrast between evil Doppelganger Cooper and Innocent Dougie.
  14. Oh my God, Tom Sizemore was brilliant tonight.
  15. Speaking of brilliant, what about Don Murray?  It’s kind of nice to see someone from the Golden Age of Hollywood getting a chance to show that he’s still got it.
  16. “Thank Dougie.” That made me laugh so hard.
  17. It’s sweet how everyone in town likes Bobby now.
  18. The Double R is a franchise now?
  19. How does Norma always pick the wrong men?  Ed’s right there!
  20. I asked our own Jedadiah Lelalnd if Sarah Palmer was watching a famous boxing match.  He said he didn’t recognize it.  His theory is that it may have been one of Bushnell Mullins’s old boxing matches.  I don’t know if I agree, just because neither one of the boxers looked like a young Don Murray to me.
  21. I still think that Bill is a figment of Audrey’s imagination.
  22. The season ending with James Hurley (and, by extension, James Marshall) and two dark-haired female backup singer feels like Lynch’s way of trolling everyone who ever complained about that famous scene from season 2 where James, Donna, and Maddy recorded a song together.  (Actually, I guess it obviously was since James was not only singing but he was singing You and I.)

20 Initial Thoughts on Twin Peaks: The Return Part 12 (dir by David Lynch)


As always, these are just my initial thoughts.  A full recap will appear either later tonight or tomorrow!

  1. Because I watched 5-Headed Shark Attack on SyFy tonight, I’m running a bit behind.  That said, the whole time that five-headed shark was eating people, I was thinking about Twin Peaks.
  2. If nothing else, Twin Peaks: The Return continues to serve as a testament to the amazing talent of the late Miguel Ferrer.
  3. “Let’s rock.”  OMG, was that just a coincidence or does it mean that Diane’s been possessed by the Man From Another Place?
  4. That was a well-stocked liquor aisle.
  5. Somehow, it seems appropriate that Sarah Palmer would smoke Salems.
  6. It was nice to see Robert Forster and Richard Beymer, those two old pros, share a scene together.
  7. Random thought I had while watching tonight’s episode: Is Josie still trapped in that door knob?
  8. It always takes me a while to leave a room too.  We’ve all been there.
  9. No, Gordon — you belong with Shelley!  And if not Shelley, Tammy.
  10. Really? 6,000 languages?
  11. There’s something comforting about the way David Lynch always mixes the corniest humor with the most disturbing drama.
  12. Awww, that hateful old Warden had a son.  That’s sad.
  13. “It’s 7 O’Clock!  Do you know where your freedom is!?”
  14. But has Nadine ever gotten around to ordering a gold shovel?
  15. Did Jacoby legally change his name to Dr. Amp?
  16. I bet Dr. Amp has got a blue check mark and a huge twitter following.
  17. OH MY GOD!  Audrey!
  18. But where is John Justice Wheeler?
  19. In Dario Argento’s Inferno, there’s a random shot of a woman that we’ve never seen before hanging herself.  She’s never mentioned or seen again.  Argento has said that he included that random shot to show that the world was out of balance.  I think, to a large extent, that’s what Lynch is doing with several of the more random aspects of Twin Peaks.
  20. Only six episodes left.  I’m kind of resigned to the possibility that Dougie may never become Cooper again.  Strangely, I know I’ll be satisfied with whatever Lynch gives us.  Let’s take a moment and give some major credit to Showtime for handing over an hour a week to someone who refuses to play by the rules.

16 Initial Thoughts on Twin Peaks: The Return Part 11 (dir by David Lynch)


Here are my initial thoughts on Part 11 of Twin Peaks: The Return!  As always, a full recap will be posted either later tonight or sometime tomorrow.

  1. Was I the only one frightened that kid would get hit by a car as soon as he ran out into the street?  Seriously, Richard Horne’s still out there.
  2. Has Norma just been sitting in that corner booth for the last 7 days?
  3. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting Harry Dean Stanton to be as prominent in this series as he has been.  That’s not a complaint.  Harry Dean makes everything better.
  4. I’d still like to know if Shelley and Bobby ever got married. It’s kind of sad that they’re no longer together because they were a cute, if murderous, couple.  (No sooner did I write this comment then the show answered my question.  Thank you, Twin Peaks!)
  5. Oh shit — was that a woodsman wandering around South Dakota?
  6. “He’s dead.” I love David Lynch’s delivery of that line.
  7. So, I guess that’s it for Matthew Lillard.  Well, he had a good three episodes and hopefully, someone will cast him in another decent role.
  8. So,  Shelley went from Leo to Bad Bobby to Red.  I have a weakness for bad boys too but come on, Shelley…
  9. Stop honking your goddamn horn!
  10. I’m liking Bobby as the voice of moral authority in Twin Peaks.  I’ve been reading Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks by Brad Dukes and everyone interviewed described Dana Ashbrook as being, even at the height of the show’s success, a genuinely nice and humble person, certainly the opposite of the way Bobby was portrayed in the original series. So, it’s nice to see him getting a chance to explore a different side of his best-known role.
  11. One question I would ask Bushnell Mullens: How does a former boxer end up running an insurance company?
  12. For some reason, Jim Belushi eating Raisin Bran just feels like one of the most Twin Peaks things ever.
  13. Las Vegas really is the perfect David Lynch town.
  14. “Everywhere I looked there could have been a hole…”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2dewDwIQyM
  15. Awwwww!  Dougie bought a cherry pie.
  16. Dougie’s going to be President by the end this show is over.
