What was James doing for 4 days?

Postby BOB1 » Tue May 15, 2012 3:00 pm

Hello :-)

Out of a sudden I felt I HAD TO watch a Twin Peaks episode tonight, and I asked my daughter for a number between 1 nad 30 and she said 18... and so we watched that strange episode which at times seems one of the worst ones ever but which has great scenes, too, such as Ben watching old videos or the introduction of agent Denise.

Well, anyway, the episode starts with James triumphantly riding his motorbike and then it struck me. Episode 16 he feels he has got to leave. One day later. Two day later, Three days later, episode 17. Four days later - eventually, there he is! But it is supposed to be a neighbouring town, where Wallie's is, right? So what was he doing, riding around in circles?!

Maybe he was blowing off some steam at One-Eyed Jack's. :wink:

Well, he only had $12- in his savings account. I'm not sure how much that would have got him at OEJ's :wink:

(probably about a half bucket of ice)

after exhausting his savings, he was also able to get to San Francisco and buy Donna a postcard too.

If only they had filmed all of this, maybe we could have been spared cheerleader tryouts and Dick's revelation on parenthood.

No wonder James started going for the brunettes.

And in the next episode - 19 - the last three scenes take place during a thunder storm; Coop and Denise's interrogation of Ernie, the Major's return, and James overhearing raised voices over at the Marsh House. If we assume it's the same thunder storm, that shows just how far away he managed to get in 4 days :?

(This is where I usually stop watching, no more Coop and Audrey scenes from now on :( I always wonder if the writers were having a dig at Lara when they give Donna the line "Sorry, Mike. I'm not that good an actress." You got that right, Lara.)
Just Agent, Audrey. Special Agent.
