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 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

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: The things I tell you will not be wrong.
Dale Cooper: But, I...
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 ...

Jelly Donuts?

One could be forgiven for watching the first season of "Twin Peaks" and thinking to themselves: 'Well, this is great, but I thought it was supposed to be really bizarre?' Well, if you were thinking that, prepare for a pleasant surprise. Directed by the brilliant David Lynch, with a terrific script by Mark Frost, the second season of "Twin Peaks" gets off to a sublime start with this feature length episode, which really can be compared with several of Lynch's cinematic films. This really does contain some of the funniest and strangest sequences you'll ever see on television. Terrific, terrific episode.

Really, how can anyone not be freaked out by the sheer brilliance that is the last three minutes of this episode? I couldn't sleep for nights after the first time I saw that.

I can't call this the best "Twin Peaks" episode, since a couple of the latter Lynch-directed episodes are probably better, but gosh darn, this is damn good anyway!

Letter Grade: A+
