Gordon Cole returns to Twin Peaks to reinstate Cooper into the FBI and to bring the classified file on Windom Earle, who is now eavesdropping on the police station with a hidden microphone in a bonsai plant. When Cole flirts with Shelly at the Double R Diner, her seductive appearance somehow makes him hear her voice. Enlightened that he can hear (at least her voice) Cole asks Shelly out on a date.

A Sweeter Episode
19 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's pretty amazing to me how a surrealist show that is, essentially, about murder which was created (in part) by David Lynch of all people, includes some of the sweetest moments in television history!

This episode has a much more lighthearted approach than most "Twin Peaks" episodes. While "Twin Peaks" is pretty lighthearted a lot of the time, this is definitely one of the more "sweet" episodes. While it does have some dark moments (it literally opens with a woman attempting to kill Sheriff Truman), this episode is probably the most romantic of the "Twin Peaks" episodes.

Annie and Dale Cooper have a lot of chemistry together, and they're certainly two of the more charming characters of the show (Agent Dale Cooper is definitely my favorite "Twin Peaks" character, he's so fun to watch), and their scenes are very entertaining. Also, the scene dealing with an encounter between David Lynch's character and Shelly Johnson is hilarious.

Overall, this episode is full of heart, humor, and fun.
