This was the best episode yet. It's like "Dougie" heard me screaming "WAKE UP COOPER" all these weeks. It's so great to have FBI Agent Dale Cooper back. Then we get Diane dissolving, Eddie Vedder and Audrey waking up probably in a some kind of hospital. I'm not sure what is up with Aubrey and we may never know.
R.I.P. Chantal. I still adore Jennifer Jason Leigh. She has always been an underrated actress in underrated films, like Delores Claiborne co-starring Kathy Bates. That movie should've garnered them both awards. I firmly believe it's the best adaptation of a King novel. In fact, Monday I was thinking the eclipse would be a great time for a unhappy woman's husband to have a happy accident. lol.
Also, kudos to Laura Dern. She was fabulous, as was Naomi Watts. I do hope we get some quality Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer in some form other than a face in the 2 hour finale. I thought she was fabulous on original Twin Peaks and in FWWM, an underrated film. Speaking from personal experience as a rape survivor, she broke my heart in that role and all of Laura's actions were completely understandable for anyone who has been through that. (It's a Lynchian coincidence that Sheryl Lee and I share the same birthday, we both have only one child, (17 year old son), we both have rare hereditary blood disorders and we are both PETA supporters and environmental activists.)
Stay hot, Bobby Briggs and call me, Dana Ashbrook! AARP eligible actors Dana Ashbrook, Kyle MacLachlan and Michael Horse still rock this AARP eligible woman's world, as did Miguel Ferrer (rest in peace). The only other Twin Peaks actor I had the hots for back in the day was Eric Da Re (Leo Johnson). It appears Leo did not survive season 2 and, sadly, Eric has not aged as well as the other actors.
Finally, I have so much respect for David Lynch and Mark Frost for casting mature actors/actresses who actually look their age for the return, rather than recasting roles or adding hot young characters. The only youthful characters added to the return made sense in the Twin Peaks world.
Does anyone know how the ratings have been for the return and whether they merit another season (like The X-Files return has)? I'm such a huge Lynch fan that I'll watch whatever he films until one of us dies.
