Storyline

After being shot by an unseen assailant, a wounded Cooper has a vision of a giant who tells him three clues to help with the investigation. In the morning, Albert Rosenfield arrives back in Twin Peaks to investigate Cooper's attack and to assist. Meanwhile, Leland's hair turns white and he continues to act strangely. 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. Leo remains in a coma after being shot by the murderous Hank. At One-Eyed Jacks, Audrey escapes notice by her father and finds that she's a prisoner there. With both Catherine and Josie missing and the sawmill burning down, Shelly and Pete are also in the hospital after escaping from the fire. Donna, following a tip from the Log Lady, decides to investigate the Double R's Meals on Wheels program that Laura worked at. Written by Anonymous

What was that?

I don't think I have ever seen such a wonderfully meaningless and surreal scenes as in this episode of Twin peaks! I mean, the first seven minutes of the episode with the old man/waiter/host is just insane and surreal as it can get. Then, the scene when the two girls are talking in the restaurant and then Donna's transformation into femme fatale and her 'dialogue' with James ( who is, by the way, looking so handsome - it is just unbelievable - in that prison scene with Donna) ... Just unbelievable! And then the dancing of the brothers with their lawyer who has gone white over night ... Just too many scenes of utter absurdity! But this is what makes it so interesting!

I would have given it a ten if there wasn't for 'less' defining moments in comparison to the pilot/first episode of the series.
