6:1 – Home

We find Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan) where we left him, at the foot of the statue in the plaza, piles of case files pressed against him, now struggling with his sleeve in a manner that is wholly childlike. Johnny Jewel's “Windswept” plays on the soundtrack, and its usage seems sadder than ever. Officer Reynaldo (Juan Carlos … Continue reading 6:1 – Home

5:10 – Jade

Just time for a brief, final appearance from Jade (Nafessa Williams), the prostitute who drove Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan) to the Silver Mustang Casino. Here she picks up her car from the car wash. When she does so, she is given back the Great Northern Hotel room key that Dougie dropped into the foot-well on their … Continue reading 5:10 – Jade

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.

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
