Rest in peace, Laura.
14 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

After Laura Palmer's death in first episode, we've been waiting three episodes for Laura's funeral... man, what a funeral! The over grief of Leland Palmer, the hostility between James and Bobby brought to this:They tried to fought while Leland jumps on Laura's coffin. I think things will go slightly faster, because Laura's funeral is over and story is getting more complex.

We learned about Bookhouse Boys and their purpose: to fight with evil that lurks in the woods. Right now that "evil" is two drug dealer brothers that is poisoning the future of Twin Peaks: the high school kids. We see that two brothers and Leo Johnson is in drug business. Aside from Laura case, this narcotic case will be investigated by Agent Cooper as well, so as it seems.

We learned what is going in town: Shelly bought a gun for herself to protect against Leo, Norma's prisoner husband is releasing with parole soon, Audrey has a secret room in her house to secretly spy on households, and most importantly Catherine knows about Josie's discovery and her life maybe in danger now.

Especially loved the Leland scenes. My vote is 9/10.
