It was the best episode so far and really did feel like an old episode of Twin Peaks. Scary/suspenseful moments such as when Jerry was in the woods and you thought something was gonna come charging out of the woods and get him. Also that blurry "thing" walking towards the military lady. And Andy standing out in the middle of nowhere and outside the violent guy's house. I thought he was gonna get a bullet to the head both times. Why don't they have Hawk or Bobby in charge of tracking down the scumbag who killed the little boy instead of incompetent Andy. No offense Andy.

Nice to see they paid tribute to Don S. Davis by making the military guy's last name Davis.

Good to see at least a part of Cooper come back with his Kung Fu moves on Ike the Spike. Ike is still loose though and might try again to take Coop out. We need the full Cooper back. Getting tired of catatonic Dougie/Coop who just repeats everything people say. If this was real life wouldn't his wife take him to the hospital thinking he had a stroke or something by now?

The pieces are slowly coming out, now they just need to come together. Hawk has the pages of Laura's diary saying the Good Coop has been in the Black Lodge and that is the bad Coop they are dealing with. He needs to connect with Gordon Cole somehow and let him know. With Dougie Coop on the news now maybe the FBI will see that? I thought his non-stop wins at the casino would have made the news and they would have seen him on camera there, but casinos don't like to release that footage, especially the evil guy running that one. Maybe someone would have filmed it with a cell phone and made it go viral? Anyway, Dougie Coop can't stay hidden from the FBI's view much longer now that his face as made the news.

Was funny with that woman asking Ben "Who's Agent Cooper? Who's Laura Palmer?" but you have to realize that all happened 25 years ago, so she was probably like 8 years-old when all that was going on and not really a big news watcher back then. Then Ben had to say "Oh, that, my dear, is a long story," because as another article said he couldn't come out and say "Oh, she's the underage girl I fell in love with while she was working in a prostitution ring I helped bankroll before she was murdered by my demonically possessed lawyer, who was also her father"

Still no word if Audrey is alive, just that she was in a coma after the explosion at the bank. Worrying that bad Cooper went to visit her. Hope he didn't pull the plugs or smother her with a pillow.

Seems like some old cast members are just basically doing cameos. Bobby was just in one episode, his buddy Mike was just in one episode, James was just in one episode, Nadine just had a quick cameo, still waiting to see Big Ed and others.

Only bad part last night was the 4 minute sweeping scene. Had to fast forward thru that until the phone rang there.

Overall it's getting better. Hopefully all loose ends will be tied up. Who is the billionaire? Is a new guy watching the glass box now? Who is directing the killings? Etc etc.

Oh, and besides Annie, Sarah Palmer also gave the message that Dale was in the Black Lodge. So the military via Major Briggs should have had this information for 25 years. Don't know if they pass it along to the FBI though. Everyone seems to be working apart and just need to come together (Twin Peaks Sheriff's Dept/FBI/Military)

The one night we don't have a live Fark thread for Twin Peaks, and it turns out to be a damn good episode.  The only parts where it seemed to drag were the very beginning scene, and the scene at the bar, but I felt like both were dropping a couple of clues as to what's going to happen in the next few episodes.  I thought for sure we were going to get an Audrey appearance, since she was name-dropped.

Considering Ashley Judd is playing the character, I'd say the character was a lot older than eight in 1992.  Further considering the entire town remembers the Laura Palmer tragedy, I'd say the character moved into the area long after those events.

But here's the thing:  in the opener of this season (yes, I know it's considered a different series, but I consider it season three), Leland tells Coop to find Laura.  So, maybe he ended up in Vegas because Laura is there.  Another major clue to this is Major Briggs only being the age he was in 1992 when he was decapitated.  But, Laura has very visibly aged.

I fear the next episode may go back to dragging.  Going back to the first four episodes, parts one and two dragged, three dragged further, and it kicked into gear in part four.  Then the next two episodes dragged, and just when you thought this was going to be the direction (I even joked last night when Cole showed up whistling that it was Lynch personally describing the pace of the first six episodes), it just went full speed ahead.  Remember, they shot everything from one continuous script, like an eighteen hour movie.  The trick is in the editing of everything.

Oh, I didn't even know that was Ashley Judd. They keep introducing so many new characters. Did we really need to meet her dying husband or know anything about her personal life? I think there's more than enough characters in the show. But yeah, I have trouble guessing women's ages since they expertly use hair dye, makeup, botox, etc. to look younger. I thought she looked like she was in her 30's, but she's 49 (you go girl!), so let's go with the "she moved into town long after the events took place".

Interesting theory on Las Vegas, but I think he was sent there just cause that's where Dougie was. He was sent to the same house Dougie was. Dougie was "manufactured" by bad Coop, so his being there is nothing to do with what Leland told Good Coop.

Not sure how that warden is gonna get away with letting bad Coop go. How's he gonna explain that? Lots of guards are in on it too plus the nearby prisoners heard the doors open and probably looked up and saw both prisoners being let out and walking by.

I hope Dougie Coop gets back to being regular Coop and has a reunion with Albert before the the guy playing Albert disappears from the show due to the actor's death. Not sure how many episode he filmed before he died. Good to see they got so many now dead people in the show right before they died. Him, the Log Lady, Doc Hayward. If this would have been filmed 2 years ago on the actual 25th anniversary we could have had more scenes with them. Log Lady scene was so sad.

I don't think he killed her, and she is likely alive - possibly she's the billionaire who built the box, but that could be a stretch.  I'm more concerned he sexually assaulted her, although I would think that would be hard to do in the ICU.  Only reason I even thought of that idea last night was because we know that the evil Cooper has BOB with him, who has a history of rape, and it's clear he assaulted Diane in her home, and we also have the character of Richard Horne (the hit and run driver) who's parents aren't identified yet, but he looks to be maybe 24-25 which would line up with him being potentially the child of Audrey and evil Cooper.

Walker: Good to see at least a part of Cooper come back with his Kung Fu moves on Ike the Spike. Ike is still loose though and might try again to take Coop out. We need the full Cooper back. Getting tired of catatonic Dougie/Coop who just repeats everything people say. If this was real life wouldn't his wife take him to the hospital thinking he had a stroke or something by now?

  Pretty much anyone should have considered taking him to the hospital by now, but when the deputies brought him home from work his wife made a comment about him often being spaced out, so it seems like he sometimes had episodes of some sort.  Possibly because it seems that Dougie wasn't a real person and was a creation of evil Coop, as said by MIKE.  (I'm still working out if he was a complete fabrication, or if he was a real person who was killed by evil Coop and replaced).  He's coming out of it, but taking time. It seems like forever to us because we get a bit each week, while he's only been out of the lodge for a few days.
  I've also been taking this as a commentary on either how people don't care what happens to be people around them, or how people miss the obvious things right in front of them.

Walker: Also that blurry "thing" walking towards the military lady


 That's a black lodge resident; later in that scene was continued past the door of the coroners office.  In the opening episodes, he was in the cell next to the high school principal who was arrested, and then vanished.  He was also seen in FWWM in the room above the convenience store.  Not clear to me if he was the one possessing the principal, or possibly his wife (as her conversation with evil Cooper implied she wasn't just a normal human woman).

The way it's played out thus, it's as if Coop pulled off a Quantum Leap without Al and Ziggy to help him to fill the holes in his Swiss cheese memory, but when he has a complex task to do, little sprites appear (or in the case of the midget assassin, the arm itself).

I do believe that Dougie Coop was a tulpa, which is a figure out of Tibetan mythology that is basically a
solid projection from the imagination of a very adept llama by virtue of their self control over their spiritual
essence.

Leland got distracted helping out someone else.

He get back around to Cooper eventually.

I was expecting that bar scene to be ten minutes of the guy sweeping the floor, then the closing credits.  I'm not sure if I would have laughed or screamed.

bluorangefyre: and the scene at the bar


This reminded me of the "slow tv" concept going on in scandinavian countries(a few articles have been greened on fark). 4 hours of a train trip. A lady weaving for hours. etc.

Testing the theory that, as long as it's Scandinavian, someone will think it's far more artistically significant than it really is.

Hour 7 was really good. The sweeping scene made me afraid that the episode was going to end, the time really flew by.

I've been listening to podcasts almost exclusively for the past 5,6 years. I haven't really paid attention to movies or TV in that time. When I heard that The Return was airing I got excited. It's the only series I care enough about to invest myself in right now.

I'm enjoying everything so far. Nostalgia is nice, but I'm happy the current series is different. It gives me a lot to think about.

I was a small child when it first aired, and I just finished watching the original run for the first time. I guess you could say all the hype surrounding the revival made me finally decide to give the show a chance.

I'm kind of amused at the way David Lynch started this series.  The first 2 episodes, and the first half of the 3rd, are some of the weirdest stuff he's ever done (and I've seen Eraserhead and Inland Empire.)  It was a steep hill to climb for people who tuned in expecting to hear Agent Cooper telling Diane about the damn fine coffee he just had or see what quirkiness Andy and Lucy are up to.

/finding Andy and Lucy to be the most disturbing part of the show so far
