That way, he'd have been able to set a good precedent for how Welsh should be directed (his acting in Episode 29 is notably improved) i.e. less is more !
I agree with the idea that the subplots of S2 could have been more interesting if the core narrative was stronger.
I never thought of it before but I think you are right. If Lynch had directed the episode where Earle first took center stage ( the Diane Keaton episode) the character might have started on sounder footing.
