Leo releases Major Briggs with a plea to save Shelly. Windom Earle finds out and retaliates by tying up Leo to a lethal device and leaves his cabin and Leo to an uncertain fate. The delusional and dehydrated Major Briggs is found by Deputy Hawk and returned to the police station where Briggs makes little sense about his captivity, but leaves clues to how to find the Black Lodge.

Andrew and Pete manage to get the last silver box open to reveal a safety deposit key. Lana seduces Dick Tremayne to get him to vote for her in the beauty pageant while Mr. Pinkle rehearses dance moves with the other contestants. Nadine reveals to Dr. Jacoby that she wants to marry Mike Nelson as soon as Big Ed and Norma are married. Cooper and Truman discuss more about the power and significance of the Black Lodge...

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.
