Three days after Leland's death following his confession to having killed Laura Palmer while under the control of the evil spirit Bob, Sarah tries to adjust herself to this turn of events with Cooper's consultation. As Cooper prepares to leave Twin Peaks with the Laura Palmer case closed, a new twist comes when Roger Hardy, an agent with FBI Internal Affairs, and a Canadian Mountie, named Preston King, show up where Cooper gets suspended by the FBI for his unauthorized actions in Canada, and Mountie King reveals that Cooper's rescue of Audrey Horne from One-Eyed Jacks ruined a sting operation the RCMP set up to arrest Jean Renault in which the drugs used were found in Cooper's car. Meanwhile, Norma's mother, Vivian, leaves town after revealing that she's the M.T. Wentz that everyone talks about and the one responsible for the bad review of the Double R Diner. Hank also takes Ernie Niles to One-Eyed Jacks where they meet with Jean Renault who wants them to traffic some cocaine for him....

More Machinations--Enough for Eleven More Episodes
14 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Poor Cooper. He has done so much, but who should show up but another member of the Mod Squad (who worked with Peggy Lipton) and a Mountie. They make accusations against Dale. This is all at the feet of Renault who wants Cooper dead for the lives of his brothers. There are some stupid scenes. The one-eyed wife of Big Ed is so over the top, thinking she is back in high school that her appearance ruins every scene they're in. Then there's Leo. What's going on with him? Bobby is failing to keep Shelley happy. He is all blow and no go and she sees her life and freedom slipping away. This is going to be interesting. Then there's Norma's awful mother and some of the other characters who will now play a role. Finally we have Lucy and Dick and on and on.
