My probably very wrong prediction is that Cooper will be back in Part 12 or 13 (beginning of the third act - Mark Frost is great when it comes to story structure). But I am enjoying the Dougie stuff a lot ever since Part 7. Naomi Watts' performance has a lot to do with it.


I think next episode is titled "Let's Rock". So you never know.

Okay, I really liked this week's episode.

Jim Belushi cracked me up, which is a weird feeling.

I keep going back to the Richard and Linda comment from the giant in the very beginning of the season. I wonder how that's going to fit in.

There was something so off about the scene with Audrey. The way the two characters were spaced apart in that room, and the cuts back and forth between the two. Uncomfortable.

For one of the truly great characters of the original run (at least in Season 1) that was a fucking weird comeback. Still good to see her, though. Sherilynn Fenn is a legend.

There's a theory, (and I realise that it and I are clutching at straws), that Audrey is in a psychiatric hospital and he is her counsellor, not husband, just playing along with her delusions. Hope this is true.

Yes there was something off with that scene. I could buy the psychiatrist scene too. Considering she's Richard's mom and isn't really in the picture makes me wonder.

Whatever excuses fans want to come up with, this episode was mostly terrible, particularly the second half (the big scenes with Adarsha Palmer and Ben Thorne the positive exceptions). The long-awaited return of Audrey wasn't just long and awkward, it was poorly written and directed. No wonder Fenn was recently outspoken about her disapproval, Lynch and Frost torpedoed her. Hopefully the character is salvaged before the end.

And then we get to the roadhouse and does Audrey appear there despite saying she was going? No, but we get introduced to even more young people we have no reason to give a shit about. Remember the ones from a couple episodes ago? Me neither.

With only 7 hours left, I'm seriously doubting Lynch & Frost's ability to pull all these seemingly disparate characters and locations together. It's likely to end a confounding mess, it's just a question of how well the fanatics will swallow that pill.

This was a tough episode which means tons of shit will happen next week.

Laz, I thought the same thing with Lost with 2 episodes to go and they still pulled it off.

I love the new series with the exception of a couple minor complaints. Gonna save my ultimate judgement once it's all said and done.

Yeah - I get why people felt this episode was a let down, but if you chunked every movie you went to into 18 parts, you are bound to hate one of them.
I have been feeling concerned for a while that it will be hard to bring this all together, but I suppose we have 3x the length of Mulholland Drive to go, so it is by no means a lost cause

Things I liked about episode 13:

1. The arm wrestling scene
2. Norma actually getting to speak
3. James playing that song and having V from GOSSIP GIRL brought to tears because she thought she'd never be forced to hear it again

The episode was a hit purely because of Cooper and Co doing the conga in the insurance office. I want that music as my ringtone.

That Jack's Rabbit scene was so fantastic.
