Great episode
27 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the show suffered a bit of a weak spot in episodes 10-15 of the 2nd season, it is definitely getting back on track. The mysteries in the show are again intriguing and suspenseful, the writing much more central and focused. This episode also shows the end of a great character, one who has made it through the show and whose personality traits and focus went from victim to murderer. Twin Peaks keeps proving that it knows how to create great drama, and even when it has it's weak spots (that hopefully already passed) it is still better than most Television shows out there. Keep them coming Twin Peaks! Keep showing me how great television is and how wonderful it can engage audiences!
