Jake Gyllenhaal Hilariously Describes the 1 '90s Problem He (and We All) Dealt With as Kids

In the latest installment of the Demolition actor's insightful interview with People and Entertainment Weekly's editorial director Jess Cagle, Jake fondly recalls his childhood. He dishes on everything from his favorite movie as a kid (Pete's Dragon, duh) to the one hilarious thing that his father, filmmaker Stephen Gyllenhaal, used to do that drove Jake and his sister, Maggie, up a wall.

Twin Peaks, Ep. 2.20, “The Path to the Black Lodge”: Love, good and evil

Twin Peaks, Season 2, Episode 20, “The Path to the Black Lodge”

Written by Harley Peyton & Robert Engels

Directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal

Originally aired April 18, 1991 on ABC

With an episode full of various expressions of love, it does not feel like a coincidence that Earle’s real endgame is finally revealed at the same time, as he hopes to find the Black Lodge. Love seems like a concept that is the antithesis of the Lodge, though one it cannot exist without, so it makes sense for their paths to converge like two ends of a magnet.

Dale comes to the realization that all this time, Earle hasn’t been after him, but after the Lodge. “He has engaged us in subterfuge and red herring…a fish I don’t particularly care for,” Dale says. By delaying the police force long enough with all these distractions, Earle has been able to discover more
