Twin Peaks: The Return Part 10

Recap: First of all, Richard Horne turns up at Miriam’s trailer. He knows that she saw him fleeing the scene of the crime after he ran over the young boy, but tries to act innocent. She warns him to stay away, as she has mailed a letter to the Sheriff Truman informing him of what Richard has done. While she thinks that might protect her, she’s fatally wrong. Richard breaks in to her home, brutally beats her, then leaves the gas on with a lit candle to burn the trailer down. He rings up Chad, asking him to intervene...

Twin Peaks: The Return Part 9

Recap: Entirely unlike last week’s groundbreaking experimental experience, part 9 is pretty straight forward. In fact, it’s probably the easiest one so far to recap, right after the part 8 became known as “the one that broke recappers.” We begin where we left off (chronologically, anyway), as Cooper’s doppelganger is bloodied but otherwise fine, approaching a farm where Hutch and Chantal, who we last saw in Part 2, are waiting. Hutch, played by Tim Roth in another astoundingly small role for a big name, who has killed the owners of the establishment. Hutch treats Cooper’s wounds, gives him a...

Twin Peaks : The Return Part 8

I was away and unable to write these recaps for parts 6 & 7, but luckily Josh covered me for both and kicked ass in the analysis as they went. I was pretty eager to get back into writing these when I saw Part 8. On the one hand, I’m a little perplexed on how to even approach an episode like this, but I do get to write about one of the best hours of television ever made, which itself confirms for me that David Lynch is the best living filmmaker. I’ve been waiting for my excessively high expectations...

Twin Peaks: The Return, Part 7

Recap: The episode opens with Jerry Horne calling his brother Ben from deep in the woods. He says that he’s high, someone stole his car, and he doesn’t know where he is. Ben, in his office at the Great Northern, seems frustrated. At the Sheriff’s Office, Hawk and Frank look over the pages Hawk found in the bathroom. It turns out that they’re from Laura’s secret diary. One of them details Laura’s dream about Annie, which says that the good Cooper is trapped in the Lodge. Another says that Laura has figured out that her father, not BOB, is...
