Shootout at Dead Dog Farm
1 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like so many episodes this one follows multiple story lines; still suspended from the FBI Agent Cooper finds himself deputised into the Twin Peaks Sheriff Department as they plan to catch Jean Renault and his associates at Dead Dog Farm; things don't quite go according to plan but some quick thinking and cross-dressing saves the day! In other plot lines James is getting closer to Evelyn and asks his uncle, Big Ed, to send him some money; Ben Horne appears to have gone insane as he is dressed up as General Lee; Nadine rescues Ed when Hank attacks him and Shelley Johnson has quite a shock in a way that I won't spoil.

This is another enjoyable episode where it is impossible to pick out any one stand out performance as everybody was pretty good and no one character dominated the episode. The most interesting of the week's plot lines involved the events at Dead Dog Farm which brought that particular story line to an exciting and satisfying conclusion. With that storyline concluded the Windom Earle plot is getting interesting in a way that gave the episode a fairly shocking conclusion... in fact it ended with a double shock; I was surprised the last scene with Shelley wasn't the conclusion but the last scene in the Sheriff's office managed to trump it!
