6:7 – Red square

A couple of short scenes worth dealing with in quick succession now. Firstly, back to Vegas, Mr Todd (Patrick Fleischer) receives a coded message on his laptop in the form of a red square. By now we've readily come to assume that this must be from Mr. C, who seems to have an array of … Continue reading 6:7 – Red square

5:9 – Kaboom

Part 5's ratatat pacing through smaller scenes continues abreast with a return to Dougie's car, abandoned on the driveway at the Rancho Rosa estates. Lynch begins the scene in close, reminding us that the car has been rigged by Lorraine's goons in an effort to assassinate Douglas Jones (Kyle MacLachlan). A red light blinking on … Continue reading 5:9 – Kaboom

5:6 – Innocence

The red door on Lancelot Court opens and out come Janey-E Jones (Naomi Watts) and Sonny-Jim (Pierce Gagnon), having completed their breakfast meal from Part 4 (as previously noted, the timelines of the different strands of story in The Return do not sync up). Janey-E tells her son to get in the car and she goes … Continue reading 5:6 – Innocence

5:1 – Lorraine

Those serene night shots of the Las Vegas skyline fade through to the breaking of dawn, suggesting a new day is upon us. This doesn't quite track. The last time we were with Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan) it was around the breakfast table, and Part 5 will continue that day's journey when we are reunited with … Continue reading 5:1 – Lorraine

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

3:6 – 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
