FBI agent Dale Cooper remains trapped in the Black Lodge. The Fireman tells him to remember "430" and "Richard and Linda". Great Northern hotel owner Ben Horne introduces his brother Jerry to his secretary, Beverly. Deputy Chief Hawk gets a call from the Log Lady, who tells him evidence relating to Dale Cooper is missing. In a New York City warehouse, a young man, Sam, is employed to observe a glass box. When the security guard is absent, Sam and a young woman, Tracey, have sex. An androgynous entity, the Experiment, materializes in the box and murders them. In Buckhorn, South Dakota, Cooper's doppelgänger -- a sinister, long-haired man with black irises -- retrieves two associates, Ray and Darya. Police find the severed head of Buckhorn librarian Ruth Davenport placed on the headless corpse of a John Doe. Local principal Bill Hastings's fingerprints are found and he is arrested. Hastings denies guilt, but fumbles his alibi. Written by tenzin sia

It Is Happening Again
21 May 2017 | by Thomas DrufkeSee all my reviews

I don't think anyone knew what to expect when Twin Peaks finally returned from a 25+ year hiatus. So many loose ends, so many questions left unanswered, and yet, the 2 hour premiere only proved to pose more questions that I'm sure we won't get answers for quite some time. The first part was filled with long takes of trippy Lynchian visuals and new faces. Without any real trailers or marketing material, this episode was very hard to follow. Not that I thought anything Lynch did would be easy to understand, but this was particularly incomprehensible. We began with Cooper in the black lodge, same place we left him at the end of the series' original run in 1991. Yes, it seems Laura Palmer was right in saying we would see her again 25 years later. With a welcomed brief appearance from the giant, the opening set the stage for what we were about to see. And I think what we saw is fascinating, because every single shot feels like David Lynch's true vision for this show. There's no way Showtime interfered at all. Both episodes felt like something straight out of Lynch's entire body of work. Without the second episode, it's hard to really dive into the specifics of what the premiere entailed. 2 people in New York City were seemingly murdered by a white blob, the log lady notified Hawk of something strange related to Cooper, and more murders in South Dakota where a Cooper Doppelganger seems to be linked to. It was quite the first hour.
