Meanwhile, Nadine, wounded by a hit on the head during the beauty pageant, wakes up now back to her old self, and becomes very upset when she sees Big Ed with Norma.

Under the sycamore trees

There are truly few things in my life that have affected me the way this episode did. Call me a hopeless case of an addict, but what I experienced was unique. I believe the people who have actually understood the complex nature of this TV series are a minority. As one of these people I feel truly blessed. When I was only 4 years old I watched the whole series and what is nearly impossible to believe is that I've remembered numerous scenes from the last episode for nearly 15 years. With details. This can give you an example of what kind of a brain wrecker David Lynch has created in these 45 minutes of pure perfection. For two seasons the feeling for mystery, horror and the hunger to know more is being fed and in the final episode, David Lynch unleashes his darkest, most surreal and bizarre ideas coming straight from the very depths of his twisted mind in the culmination of all times. The red curtains, the bizarre atmosphere of the red room, the feeling of twisted reality, the deep music that flows in the air, even the pattern on the floor - all the elements combine to give us the best 45 minutes in cinematic history. This episode left a mark in my brain, I believe can never be erased. Best piece of art ever.
