Judging by her tweets a while back, I'm not sure if she was acting at all.

Speaking of Bloody Marys -- we heard the name "Mary" mentioned for the 3rd time. She's described during the conversation between the 2 ladies at the roadhouse as someone they don't care for (because she's stealing whats-his-name away from 'Angela').
Back the Part 9 when Johnny Horne ran into the wall the closed captioning read Sylvia calling "Mary -- who let him out?!"
And Part 8 when the young couple walking home in N.M. she asks if he's bummed out to longer be going steady with "Mary."

Mostly just dots, and not very connected ones at that~

When she asks the clerk something like "Were you here when they arrived?" I'm pretty positive she's already on a completely different subject, like "Were you here when the malicious forces arrived?"

Not out of place in a Lynch production. I had a black rotary phone when I was a kid. (As for the scene itself, I am not a fan.)

This entire thing is feeling like disconnected random dots -- more and more each hour that slips by.

Something about this entire episode felt cold and distant. The closest thing I can relate it to is hanging out with two people that have a deep and intimate bond, and talk about their common experiences in a way that is enticing but incapable of being understood by outsiders. Except in the case of tonight's episode, the interactions were between individuals that weren't really having shared experiences. Audrey's reactions were a perfect mirror of my viewing group's reactions... impatience, anger, confusion. So many of the scenes in tonight's episode were like this. Beverly getting lost as Ben trails off monologue-ing about his childhood bike, Albert holding his frustration at bay while Gordon's date takes forever to depart. There seems to be a kind of distance growing between characters, just as there is a distance growing between the viewers and the characters.

Perhaps as the narrative approaches some dark entrance into a Black Lodge-esque dimension, not only do evil things occur more frequently, but intimacy and commonality become more rare and difficult to achieve.

If Audrey's frustration mirror the audience's reactions tonight (along with Beverly's confused disinterest and Albert's boiling impatience), then the scene where Sonny-Jim threw a baseball to father Dougie might very well encapsulate the experience of watching episode 12. Sonny-Jim lobs the ball and Dougie can't even make an effort to receive it. Maybe Lynch/Frost gave us something tonight, but we just don't know how to accept it. The backyard ball toss felt very "the falcon cannot hear the falconer".

I will say that the shock of dropping Audrey's return after the non-sequitur of Dr. Amp was incredibly jarring in a brilliant way. No build up, no warning, then Audrey is here and she is married to this strange, dull man who she is entirely incapable of having a comprehensible conversation with. I will have to sleep on this one because this might have been the most challenging episode so far.

You are asking this in an episode where we saw a short scene of Sonny Jim throwing a baseball on Dougie's head and that's it.

Yeah, especially her strangely moving eyebrows were distracting. Not a good scene by any means. But Grace Zabriskie. Just phenonemal. Really keep my fingers crossed that she will have a large part in the last episodes. Her scenes were among the very best of the entire series.

Kinda wonder if there was some drama on the set and they just filmed that quickly in order to get it over with. She literally doesn't move from that spot.

Yep. I definitely noticed the Heineken and was surprised by it.
