In the last episode, Cooper is living his best Dougie life by digging into some chocolate cake when he catches on TV the portion of “Sunset Boulevard” that mentions Gordon Cole, which happens to be the same name as his old FBI Director pal, played by Lynch. Recognition spurs Cooper into action, and he sticks a fork into the electrical socket. Cut to outside of the house as the sounds of Dougie’s wife Janey-e (Naomi Watts) screaming within can be heard.

History repeating itself on “Twin Peaks” has so far fallen into the category of not learning from or not being able to move on from past mistakes. Shelly (Madchen Amick) married an abusive man when she was too young and is now romantically involved with Red (Balthazar Getty), a man who’s been shown to have violent tendencies. Her daughter Becky (Amanda Seyfried) also married an abusive man.
In this past Sunday’s episode, Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) reveals through a heartbreaking look that he’s still in love with Norma (Peggy Lipton), while she’s involved with someone else. Even Ed’s nephew James (James Marshall) gives viewers major deja vu with his rendition of “Just You,” a song he had crooned in Season 2 of the original series with two dark-haired ladies backing him up.

With Evil Dale (Kyle MacLachlan) getting down to business, he sends a mysterious text to a person who comes as a surprise. Agent Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer) and FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole (David Lynch) with Diane (Laura Dern) in tow, investigate the apparent discovery of Major Briggs’ (Don S. Davis) body. Back in Twin Peaks it also looks like Briggs has left a message for his son Bobby (Dana Brooks) and his colleagues about the missing Agent Cooper.
As “Twin Peaks” reached its halfway mark, David Lynch dumped a lot of information in Sunday’s episode that connected the dots but didn’t give everything away. But it does look like everyone is going to journey to the Black Lodge, which means another batshit crazy episode could be in the offing.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the episode:
The Time 2:53
We first heard about “253” when Special Agent Cooper met the Evolution of the Arm, who told him, “253. Time and time again.” Later, that number comes up as a time, when Cooper gets sucked from the Purple Room to the electrical socket and into Dougie’s life. Simultaneously, Dougie gets whisked to the Black Lodge, and Evil Cooper wrecks his car and starts puking bloody garmonbozia.
In Part 9, Sheriff Truman,
What was only hinted at in the third episode of “Twin Peaks” became a full-blown surrealistic experience in Sunday’s avant-garde “Part 8.”
Despite the experimental filmmaking and very little dialogue, the 50-minute bombardment of sound and fury coalesced into an intriguing origin story that promised a lot more sense in the contemporary story to come. Giving historical context to some of the things we’ve seen so far anchors the story in a way that it hasn’t been before. But this wasn’t just the story of one birth, but of many. Let’s break those and a few other theories down:

What About Bob?
The evil spirit (Frank Silva) we first met in the original series has been riding along with Evil Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in some sort of weird, mutual symbiosis. It seemed that
With a huge cast and 25 years intervening between the original “Twin Peaks” and “The Return” on Showtime, familiar faces may not be all that familiar anymore. While Parts 1 and 2 reintroduced many of the main returning characters, whom you can reference here, the next two episodes that aired Sunday trickled in a few more.

Here’s a breakdown of who’s who from the original series that showed up in Episodes 3 and 4:
Major Garland Briggs (Don S. Davis)
The Air Force officer had been part of a classified operation that was investigating the White Lodge and was the father of Bobby Briggs (see below). Although actor Don S. Davis died in 2008, an image of Briggs’ floating head is seen while Agent Cooper is in space. As the head, superimposed over the space landscape,
If you thought the first two hours of the Twin Peaks revival were weird, you haven't really seen anything yet.
Let's start with what is easily the David Lynch-iest sequence of the show so far.
The Purple Spaceship
After being expelled from the Black Lodge and taking a quick pit stop in the glass box in New York City, real Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) finds himself in a weird purple spaceship thing with a woman who is listed in the credits as Naido (Nae Yuuki). Her eyes are melted shut, which lends some weight to the idea that eyes are important in Twin Peaks -- Ruth Davenport (Mary Stofle) was missing an eye and it also appeared that Evil Cooper (MacLachlan) shot Phyllis Hastings (Cornelia Guest) through the eye.
The woman eventually disappears and Cooper encounters the shadowy head of Major Garland Briggs (Don S. Davis), who utters the phrase "blue rose
It's the first time we've see the Twin Peaks logo and heard the opening notes of Angelo Badalamenti's unforgettable theme song in 25 years. When it happens, we're looking right at the face of Laura Palmer. Director David Lynch and his co-creator and co-writer Mark Frost could have chosen pretty much any image to pair with the kick-off of the show's almost manically anticipated return. But after a cold-open flashback that recycled footage from the original series – the sequence from the series finale in which she informs
Back in 1991 when Laura Palmer sat with Special Agent Dale Cooper in the Black Lodge informing our FBI Agent, “I will see you again in twenty-five years.”, what we as viewers were not aware about at the time was that both David Lynch and Mark Frost were letting us know that we too, would be seeing the return of the Twin Peaks… a quarter of a century later!
When Twin Peaks began, back in 1990, the initial driving mystery was who killed Laura Palmer this then led to the supernatural Black & White lodge and Windom Earle. Amongst these mysteries lay the ‘white picket fences’ of a quiet American town, in the Pacific Northwest region, bordering Canada. However, behind this world of Cherry Pie, Homecoming Queens and Lumber Mills, there were secrets and lies everywhere and that’s before we bring in the supernatural.
This is not a book for a “Twin Peaks” newbie — and the arcane subject matter makes it unlikely to appeal to anyone who isn’t already a fan. A

The author may not be dead, but he’s certainly tight-lipped. (David Lynch, the much more well-known mind behind “Twin Peaks,” doesn’t answer questions about the meaning of his work.
