James remains in jail after being framed by Bobby who plants Leo's cocaine stash in his motorcycle. Big Ed maintains a bedside vigil for the comatose Nadine after a suicide attempt.

Quotes

[the Giant appears before Cooper again who's asleep]
The Giant: Sorry to wake you.
Dale Cooper: I wasn't dreaming.
The Giant: I forgot to tell you something.
Dale Cooper: You were right about the smiling bag.

The Giant: Better to listen, than to talk.
Dale Cooper: I believe you.
The Giant: Don't search for all the answers at once. A path is formed by laying one stone at a time. One person saw the third man that night. Three have seen him, yes, but not his body. Only one, known to you, ready now to talk. One more thing, you ...

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.
