Quotes

[first lines]
FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield: The short answer is, this is the work of the same ghoul who killed Laura. More fan mail: the letter 'O' under Maddy's ring fingernail. There were strands of fur clutched in her right hand.
Special Agent Dale Cooper: What kind of fur?
FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield: White fox. The strands were laced with formaldehyde. A dead animal, stuffed.
Sheriff Harry S. Truman: I'll make phone calls. Leland will know how to get ahold of Maddy's family.
Special Agent Dale Cooper: Harry, don't make any calls. I need 24 hours.
Sheriff Harry S. Truman: For what?
Special Agent Dale Cooper: To finish this.

A great conclusion to Laura's murderer
22 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since the mystery of Laura's murder has been set from Day 1, one will wonder where the rest of the series will go. All in all, I have to say, this was a great conclusion to Laura's murder, because while we saw who the killer was two episodes again, now we see the end of him. This was a great episode and superbly acted by the actor who plays Laura's murderer. No doubt many will have anger because of the strange twist to Laura's murderer, and because it is not as straight-forward as they might want, but I think that is exactly why this show is as great as it is. I will continue to watch the series, and hope that it continues in the path it was on, since it was also very much about other characters.
