Donna is a center in this episode. Not only does she show her jealousy and humanness, she dominates the screen. Things continue to go bad at the One Eyed Jack, poor in over her head Audrey is in big trouble. Everyone but her father knows that he is, indeed, her father. An ugly vicious man shows up to avenge the deaths of his brothers and Cooper is at the center of his anger. One rather trite thing is that every time James and Maddy find themselves in an affectionate clinch, Donna pops in. Things get more and more bizarre and there is an arrest for murder. But it's not Laura Palmer's death. Thing also get a lot more dangerous.
