Maybe they'll pick up some Smirnoff on the way.

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.

should have included"coop wakes up in episode 3 and we have 15 episodes of awesome"

BOB inside Sarah rings true to me. He was in the other two Palmer's.

His clothes were old-fashioned too.

He seems like a journalist: Lots of books/papers on the desk, talk of deadlines, and the next episode title is "What story is that, Charlie?"

Yes he did. I am not sure what to make of that scene. Why do you think Audrey had to marry Charlie?


We'll find out, but I think the important takeaway from the scene is that Audrey, like Shelly, is focused on some guy in her life more than anything else.

If Richard is her son, which I doubt, she's not interested in his life at all.

I think Richard may very well be Donna's son.

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 first thing I thought of was her scene of watching the nature documentary and animals eating each other. What does that mean?

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 find a lot of this f***ing with the audience totally hilarious, I mean I was dying when Charlie wouldn't tell Audrey what he heard on the phone. It might piss me off if I thought there wasn't going to be more answers but I have no concerns on that end at all. We've learned a lot already.

The humor is almost Andy Kaufman-esque in the audaciousness of it.

An episode of TPTR without Norma doing paperwork is no episode whatsoever. Shame on you, Misters Lynch & Frost!

There are a heck of a lot of references to smoking in this show.

Gotta light?

The spelling of that's kind of odd. Out of context, wouldn't one would naturally read that as a contraction of "got to light"?

^ That's some special agent cooper like inductive skills if some of that is true.

She's apparently outsourced it all to Charlie.

I like Charlie.

Scenery jumping across decades is nothing new for lynch (particularly mulholland dr), question is if there is relevance towards the plot/ framework
