The blood can already be seen on the cultivator before Harold cuts his face with it; this is then furthered when he lightly brushes it against his cheek, leaving a small speck of blood not indicative of a cut (this is again seen before he actually cuts his face). See more »

'The woods are wondrous here... but strange'
17 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode opens humorously with somebody demonstrating a rather dangerous looking medical winch to Shelly and Bobby and ends with the exciting rescue of Audrey Horne from One Eyed Jacks; in between those two events plenty happens; Andy gets the results of his sperm test back but gets a shock when he calls Lucy; Donna starts talking to agoraphobic Harold in an attempt to get Laura's diary; and Leland is given bail and Leo is found unfit for trial.

This episode was a lot of fun with both humour and the most excitement we've seen for a time; the raid on One Eyed Jacks was pretty exciting; I was a little surprised that Cooper punched a woman although to be fair it was in self defence! Kyle MacLachlan continues to do well in the role of Cooper and Michael Ontkean does well as the Sheriff; they make a good partnership despite, or perhaps because of, their very different styles.
