Annie Blackburn: I'd like to quote these words from Chief Seattle, leader of the Suquamish tribe. "Your dead are soon forgotten and never return.

One of the best episodes of the series....
31 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seeing as how there is one more episode to go until the end of Twin peaks, there is much anticipation to what will happen in the series. The 2nd to last episode is really great, the suspense and mystery evolving until the final scene of the episode is nerve-wracking, and there is nothing better to hope for than how this episode ended. I can only think of what will happen in the final episode, but this episode was brilliantly written and executed. I think the right person of the Miss Twin Peaks contest won. When the final episode rolls around, I will be very sad to see Twin Peaks end, but of course, it's legacy will always continue.
