"...this is a f*cking nuthouse!"
13 August 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

In what appears to be the oddest episode since the masterful eight entry, this mad surrealist ride is Lynch at his most surprising, humorous, and disturbing. The first twenty minutes of this episode are pure comedic gold, mainly due to Lynch's own eccentric performance as Gordon Cole. Brief flickers of the heavily bizarre pop up here and there during these opening scenes, and they are played mainly for laughs, and what laughs they are! Despite the gruesome material we are faced with later on in the episode, it deserves the label as being one of the funniest entries in the series so far if not just for these early, wildly comic moments. Of course, there are hilarious lines and scenes throughout the rest of the episode as well, including on sequence in a jail cell that is so damn disturbing I winced, but was also so damn funny I had no choice but to awkwardly chuckle, squirming gently in my seat, not even sure if my mind was in control anymore.

For the most part, this episode centers around the criminal investigation/police sector of the "Peaks" universe and features key scenes with many of the show's most likable and mature characters. Plus, Andy, the iconic comic relief character, is an unexpectedly major figure in this episode, and shows off his more serious side, one far removed from what we are used to. There's also some fascinating information given out by Diane in her scene, which implies some major future development with the Dougie Jones subplot (which, unfortunately or fortunately depending on your opinion of the character, is not explored any further in this entry), as well as Cole's enigmatic recollection of his dream in which he encounters Monica Bellucci of all people (who actually plays herself, and it is also said that Cole has had dreams featuring the actress before) and reminisces on an odd encounter he, Cooper, and Albert had with the long lost Philip Jeffries many years ago, which is famously depicted in Fire Walk With Me. And, speaking of FWWM, its starting to show its incredible significance to this new series quite a bit with many key images and references directly dealing with events from that film, so anyone whose watching this new series and has yet to see, or does not remember very well, FWWM is urged by myself to go out and (re)watch it right away, because it really is essential viewing in order to understand some major pieces of the "Twin Peaks" puzzle.

All in all, this is definitely one of the best episodes of the series so far, as we'll as one of the strangest, quirkiest, and objectively most important ones. It melds plot progression and insane experimental shenanigans together flawlessly, and this review barely even scratches the surface of this mini masterwork. So, if you've been sort of losing hope in the series (I haven't at all, but I do realize that some did not find the last couple of episodes to be particularly appealing), this insane fifty six minutes of comical, mysterious, and shocking genius will likely restore said hope.
