User Reviews

Probably the creepiest episode overall.
21 March 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Twin Peaks is most famous for its creepy, surreal moments (the dwarf, the giant, etc). While this episode may not boast the most famous of these scenes, it has perhaps the highest concentration of them (except for the finale, obviously). From creamed corn to Bob crawling over a couch, it is obvious that this one was directed by Lynch.

Not only does this episode have a lot of creepy scenes, but it also has my personal favourite; Major Briggs delivering the message to Cooper. It blows my mind and chills my spine every time I watch it. The scene is important because it is the first confirmation that the strange happenings in previous episodes were not just random dreams and visions, but tied to something real and supernatural. It also serves as important character development for Major Briggs.

Overall, this may be one of my favourite episodes. It has my favourite scene from the series as well as the iconic creamed corn scene and a general atmosphere of creepiness sustained throughout.
