In the first season, Doc Hayward reveals that the blood in the Leo's shirt is a "rare type AB-", and says that this is Jacques Renault's blood type. In the second season premiere, when Albert Rosenfield and Cooper explain Laura's murder, they say that the blood of the killer is "AB-, not of Ronnette, Leo or Jacques". See more »

Quotes

Dale Cooper: Diane... my recorder is on the table. I'm unable to reach it at this time. I can only hope that I inadvertently pressed the voice activation button. I'm lying on the floor of my room. I've been shot. There's a great deal of pain and a fair amount of blood. Fortunately I was wearing my bulletproof vest last night per bureau regulations when working undercover.

David Lynch at his most surreal....
19 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first season of Twin Peaks was really great. Although it was only 8 episodes, it introduced some very interesting and mysterious characters with secrets and hidden backdrops. It was a great mystery/crime drama with elements of surrealism. The 1st episode of the 2nd season continued but dwells even more into the surreal and nightmares that David Lynch is so known for. The episode is masterfully written and directed, and it involves some of most disturbing images ever on Television. The last scene is enough to scare many viewers and to wonder what type of show they are watching, since many must have thought this would only be a murder mystery. Hopefully, the rest of the season is as great and I will be looking forward to more and to where Lynch and Frost takes me.
