Yes--The Surreal Deal
5 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Cooper continues his quest, though he has been absorbed into a kind of netherworld. He finds the second of the giant's prophecies to be presented to him. Meanwhile, Leo continues in his coma while a second comatose patient continues to be manic over her visions. There are some really interesting scenes. One is Audrey attacking the guy who has been connecting with young women through the perfume counter. She is, however, trapped at One Eyed Jack's. That note sits just out of sight, under his bed at the motel. There are other strange goings on involving someone who lives next to Donna's Meals on Wheels customer, who is also bizarre and has a ten year old accomplice who is a magician. There is also the first sign that aliens may be involved in everything. Finally, there is this strange scene as the girls sing along with James as he plays a weird song on his electric guitar. We see Donna go into a fit of jealousy. There are some jump out scenes as well.
