Albert Rosenfield: Dedication to duty is not the only reason of my return to Twin Peaks. It's about Windom Earle.
Dale Cooper: Agent Earle? But he's retired!
Albert Rosenfield: Yeah, I know. To a nice, comfortable chair complete with wrist and ankle restraints at the local laughing academy in D.C., until recently.
Dale Cooper: What happened?
Albert Rosenfield: Nobody knows. One day he's there, the next... poof! He disappeared. He escaped. Vanished into thin air. Your former partner flew the coop, Coop.

'Is this real... or some strange and twisted dream'
11 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The investigations continues apace as Cooper pays a visit to Ronette Pulaski in the hospital; she has a violent reaction when she sees a sketch of the mysterious Bob and Audrey Horne has a few questions for one of the clients at One Eyed Jacks about Laura. While there are advances in that case we still don't know what happened to Catherine Martell in the fire; the Horne brothers clearly believe she is dead but for now we can't know for sure although the fact that Shelly Johnson is alive suggests otherwise.

This second episode of season two continues in the slightly strange way one has come to expect; one notably strange early scene features director David Lynch's son Austin Jack Lynch as a boy who appears to have magical powers... and that is just the start of it later Major Briggs visits Cooper with something he thinks might be relevant... a possible message from space! Last season we knew little of Bob but it seems as if we are going to start learning more about him now; Leland recognises a sketch of Bob as somebody he knew as a child and Maddy has what appears to have been a vision of him in a particularly creepy scene.
