Storyline

Leland's arraignment is held at the Roadhouse where Judge Sternwood releases him on his own will. Judge Sternwood also rules that Leo Johnson is not competent to stand trial for the sawmill fire. Meanwhile, Donna enlists Maddy's help to help her steal Laura's secret diary away from Harold Smith. Elsewhere, Bobby and Shelly plan over make her house to assist Leo's return to take bed-care of him, while Mr. Pickle gets stuck in a mechanical device showing them how to work it.

Hank is ordered by Ben Horne to follow Cooper to make sure he delivers the ransom money and get Audrey back. Big Ed brings the crazy and delusional Nadie home from the hospital.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Donna Hayward: This is from a long time ago, is that ok? I was about thirteen years old, fourteen maybe. We were going to the roadhouse to meet boys. They're about twenty years old. And they're nice to us. And they make us feel like we're older. Rick asks if we wanna go party and Laura says "yes," and all of a sudden I feel this knot building up in my stomach. But when Laura gets in the truck with Rick, I go anyway. A stream in the woods and when I think, it's pale and light out. Laura starts to dance around ...

'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.
