Alternate Versions

When originally aired (and on earlier home media releases), the end credit theme ('Laura Palmer's Theme') on this episode began as the piano climb section of the theme was ending, and had mostly the low-motif section of the theme playing over the credits, creating a darker more ominous mood. Subsequent home media and airings have modified it so that it matches the section of the theme heard over the regular end credits. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best episodes in Television history...
31 August 2010 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

The finale to Twin Peaks was everything you could hope for and more. David Lynch is back to direct this episode, and whoa, what an episode it is. The writing and direction are spectacular and spellbinding. This is Lynch at his most surreal. What I find truly amazing about the ending to the series is that it does not close the doors for the characters. It actually does not have much of the other characters besides Cooper and Windom Earle stuck in the Black Lodge. The scenes of Cooper dwelling deeper into the Black Lodge are completely bizarre and unpredictable, and I wonder what kind of reception it got back when it aired. I am sure many people would have dismissed it as being 'weird' for the sake of being weird, but that is what Lynch is. He is a master at surrealism and mystery, and it was part of what got me into Twin Peaks. The murder, and Lynch's trademark suspense. I also did find the fates of several characters very tragic (including my favorite character in the series, who happens to be female), but the way it happened was completely shocking and it shows just how unpredictable Lynch is. BRAVO to the series as a whole and to the amazing series finale!
