Trivia

In the scene where James Hurley is released from jail, watch carefully for the secret sign exchanged between Big Ed Hurley and Deputy Hawk. Its significance will be explained in later episodes. See more »

Goofs

The fact that there was a year's gap between the filming of Twin Peaks: Pilot and this one is evident in the different hairstyles sported by some of the cast. Although they take place on consecutive days, James Hurley, Sheriff Truman, and Deputy Brennan all have shorter haircuts by the next day, while Donna Hayward, Catherine Martell and Audrey Horne (in particular) all have noticeably longer hair.

Don't drink that coffee !
12 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Second episode is over, and we are seeing more depth of the characters. I'm beginning to love Agent Cooper. He's like Sherlock Holmes of 90's era. And there is a funny quote by Sheriff Truman saying that he should start reading about medicine because he feels like Doctor Watson around Agent Cooper.

In this episode Cooper and Truman investigates more about Laura Palmer's death and they don't come up with anything. All they do is to release James, Bobby and his friend. Then, we see more about other character's life. Their secrets, personal lives, their relations with each other.

There are funny moments again in this episode: the scene where Cooper learns about Truman and Ms. Packard, and their facial expression when they learn they drank coffee with a fish in it!

The thing I love about this show is that, there is a interesting person everywhere. Twin Peaks is a really interesting and mysterious town. Every character have some mysterious side. Last episode I'm thinking that Doc. Jacoby is a crazy freak, but after this episode, I think he maybe the perpetrator.

One last part about Audrey Horne, her acting is excellent and she is real hot!

My vote is 9/10
