The Sarah Palmer scenes where TOTALLY creepy.... The rattling bottles in her house, and her expression and demeanor while at the door with Hawk. So, so creepy.

More total speculation -- some version of Laura that was beamed out of the lodge has come back to warn people about some shit going down, and is being stashed with Sarah in the Palmer house.

If anything thought, I think this episode actually makes it MORE likely that Audrey is Richard's mother. Introducing her in an episode that is about people trying to track down Richard kind of points to that.


I think the thing her husband didn't want to tell her at the end was Richard is on the run for murder.

Long build up, I know, but I think that was the intended pay off.

Messing with the audience might be fun, but it hardly makes for good and satisfying art. I've enjoyed most of this so far, but somewhere in the back of my mind the warning bells are sounding that we might already know as much as we're ever going to know about any of these storylines.


I was especially frustrated with the Jacoby/Nadine scene. I'm 99% sure that whole intro Jacoby did (turning on the lamp, etc.) was straight up reused as-is from the first episode he first appeared in.


I don't think so. Some of it seemed delivered slightly differently, to my ear. The somewhat menacing establishing shot outside Jacoby's trailer seems to be pointing to something deeper going on here, too.

I'm gonna be really disappointed if we have a bunch of in answered questions. Some questions left unanswered is fine because it's Lynch lol. I really want to imagine we're gonna see old Coop back in action but I think that's not gonna happen. I can't believe it's almost over.


Remember that the original run was pegged at just 9 episodes. I'm sort of expecting things to start accelerating in the next couple of episodes (the 10/1 and 10/2 dates are rapidly approaching).


Even in Season 2... the show REALLY ramped up in the last batch of episodes. The whole narrative went into hyperdrive with 'Miss Twin Peaks' and 'Beyond Life and Death'.


Exactly. On the other hand... Dell Mibbler. :D

I loved this episode. The Sarah scenes were phenomenal, as was Ben's material.

I am shocked at the reaction on here to "cole's girl" - I ADORED that scene. That was the funniest scene of the new series for me.

The only part I didn't like was the Nadine / Jacoby scene. As others have noted, it was a recycling of previously shown material.

It was the exact same footage.

Thoughts on Sarah's reaction to the turkey jerky? The fact that she is overly in tune to things suddenly changing in her reality? She goes out of her way to question the clerk to make sure she saw them when they were delivered. Is reality suddenly changing on a dime in Twin Peaks?

the ben + frank scene was some great stuff. i can't but help wishing this was harry and not frank tho.

the women of twin peaks...nothing good has really happened to any of them. laura, audrey, shelly. nothing good. and who knows about donna.


I think it was Bob, that's the only explanation that makes sense to me.

raltenbach wrote:I really loved the glacial pacing of this episode and how certain scenes not only tried the audience's patience, but the patience of the characters within the scene (Albert waiting on the French woman, Audrey waiting on her husband). Add to this the fact that the only moments that advance the plot points we've been following closely are very brief and also self aware in their brevity (The killing of Warden Murphy in particular with the "bang bang next stop Wendy's" and the single shot of Cooper getting hit by a baseball). I do enjoy it when Lynch/Frost toy with the audience like that.

With that in mind, I do think tat in retrospect this will prove to be a very important episode. A lot of things happening in the background, or even unseen/unheard.

I think the woman that Audrey had her husband call is the mother of the kid that Richard killed, hence her husband's silence

I'm pretty sure the Sarah meltdown will have a lot of significance going forward, and the use of the Philip Jefferies music in that scene made it feel even more powerful.

The way Sarah was acting when Hawk paid his visit lead me to two conclusions:

1. BOB is currently inhabiting Sarah.

2. The kid from the store is the first new victim (that was him in the kitchen, likely near death)

Diane knows WAY more than either Cole or Albert (LAS VEGAS?) and I now think she's been communicating with Jefferies this whole time.


Love this entire post.

That's along the lines of what I was thinking.

I too thought the sound coming from Sarah's kitchen was the kid from the grocery store who'd said he'd deliver her stuff. Didn't occur to me that Sarah might be inhabited by BOB!

There were a lot of odd things in that Audrey scene, but the oddest to me was Charlie's use of a rotary phone. I mean, not just a landline but a rotary!

UGHH. Am I the only the one that gets seriously SO annoyed with Tammy. She's too sexual in the most tense/stiff/awkward way possible especially for a Special Agent. She's just a boring robot for information imho. Gather, compute, report, repeat. I get that she's earned her spot in the reopening of the Blue Rose case (by compiling the dossier). But she just IRKS me.

Loved the Audrey/ Charlie bit. Even though I'm still confused. But I see a lot of my own impatient qualities in Audrey and I cracked up. :P

Whoooo's in the house with Sarah?!


Coordinates +2= Twin Peaks?? Please show the steps on how you did that math, Diane!
