3:15 – Kafkaesque

Kafkaesque (adjective) - characteristic or reminiscent of the oppressive or nightmarish qualities of Franz Kafka's fictional world. e.g. "a Kafkaesque bureaucratic office" FBI Headquarters, Philadelphia, PA FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole (David Lynch) sits in on a meeting with Agent Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer). Albert is presenting information on an ongoing case. Among the other … Continue reading 3:15 – Kafkaesque

3:14 – Call for help

Jade (Nafessa Williams) pulls up outside of the Silver Mustang Casino and indicates to Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan) that he should go inside, "someone will help you in there". "In there," parrots Dougie. Jade gives him five dollars and recommends that he call for help. Call for help is the key line of dialogue in Part … Continue reading 3:14 – Call for help

3:13 – Shovels revisited

Before we return to the misadventures of Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan), another playful tease of what Dr. Jacoby (Russ Tamblyn) is up to. We last saw him near the top of Part 1 taking delivery of a number of shovels. So early did this appear that we are naturally drawn to conclude its relevance to the … Continue reading 3:13 – Shovels revisited

3:12 – It’s not about the bunny

One of the great comedic scene cappers in the beginning of Twin Peaks occurs in the conference room of the Twin Peaks Sheriff's Department. Fresh faced Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and Sheriff Harry Truman (Michael Ontkean) are sat at the table going through evidence, and have been noting items of intrigue surrounding Laura Palmer's diary, … Continue reading 3:12 – It’s not about the bunny

3:11 – Something bad in this vehicle

Perhaps the Drugged-Out Mother in the last scene - crying out "1-1-9" - was anticipating the Highway Patrol car that finds Mr. C (Kyle MacLachlan) passed out in his wrecked Lincoln by the side of the road? We cut back to the site of his accident. The Highway Patrol car rolls up with sirens blazing … Continue reading 3:11 – Something bad in this vehicle

3:10 – 1-1-9

Gene (Greg Vrotsos) gets out of his car and goes over to inspect Dougie's, still parked out front of the house on the Rancho Rosa estate. This is witnessed by a little boy (Sawyer Shipman) who is looking out of his front window from across the street. Behind the boy his mother sits at a … Continue reading 3:10 – 1-1-9

3:9 – Jade gives two rides

Following a time cut, we find Jade (Nafessa Williams) and Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan) leaving the house. One assumes she has helped him to his feet and shown him the way. She locks up. She notices that Dougie has no shoes. He stands there staring into space. When she re-enters the house he follows her in … Continue reading 3:9 – Jade gives two rides

3:8 – Dougie and Jade

The red drapes of the Black Lodge fade through to the image of a four-point electrical socket as a low electronic hum builds. We're back in the house on the Rancho Rosa estate. Mr. Jones' small pile of vomit is on the floor, sliced up by sunlight that's being divided by drapes. The top right … Continue reading 3:8 – Dougie and Jade

3:7 – I feel funny

This post covers a series of short scenes edited together into a unified sequence. Back out on the roadside, the presence of the drapes surrounding Mr. C's (Kyle MacLachlan) wrecked car intensifies, as does his nausea. At the Rancho Rosa development, Dougie staggers across the floor to the living room, while Jade (Nafessa Williams) showers. … Continue reading 3:7 – I feel funny

3:6 – Dougie

Rancho Rosa Estates; a new suburban housing development on the outskirts of Las Vegas. We're greeted with a billboard for the site, incorporating the name and logo of the production company for The Return as indicated at the very beginning of every instalment. It's a nice - if glaring - Easter egg. I did think … Continue reading 3:6 – Dougie
