Episode 9
17 July 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

After a freaky and way out episode 8, we are back to normality, well as normal as any Lynch episode can get.

Evil Cooper is alive and hell bent on revenge against the Prison Warden. He meets associates Hutch and Chantal at an isolated farm and gives them some orders and also sends a text to Diane.

Deputy Director Gordon and Agent Albert divert their plane to Buckhorn where they examine the headless body of Major Briggs at the morgue. When they get a rundown of the story of a beheaded librarian murdered by her lover Bill Hastings, a high school principal and then his wife got killed by his lawyer. Albert asks 'What happens in season two?'

Both Albert and Gordon notice that Major Briggs body has not aged in the last 25 years as well as having Dougie Jones wedding ring in his stomach.

The FBI interview Hastings who talks about how he and his lover the librarian investigated alternative dimensions in their blog. It led Albert to remark, 'Fruitcake anyone?'

The police are now interested in Dougie. His car has been bombed and he was involved in an attempted hit by Ike the Spike. It seems Dougie attracts trouble and there are no records of Dougie prior to 1997. The police think witness protection and one of the gets his prints by way of a nice cup of coffee. The police also arrest Ike the Spike who has a heavily bandaged hand.

This episode is mainly about Major Briggs. I recall in the original show he was less of a military caricature and rather more human who was exasperated by his teenage son's antics. Now we learn that he also had some kind of second sight, even a supernatural ability.

Deputy Bobby Briggs visits his mother with Hawk and Sheriff Truman. She tells them that her husband once told her that the three of them would show up one day and ask about Agent Cooper. She also gave them a small metal cylinder which Bobby Briggs knows what to do with it.

Once opened it gives some instructions of a location and a date in the future and Copper written down twice.

It certainly looks like that the two Coopers are headed for a showdown hopefully in Twin Peaks. The FBI will also get a scent that Dougie is Cooper once the police in Las Vegas get those finger prints analysed.
