8:3 – She's gone away

We cut to the Roadhouse. Not the first surprise of Part 8; by no means the last. Discordant noise fills the soundtrack as the band on stage build-up the intro to their song. The resident MC (J.R. Starr) announces that the venue is "proud to welcome the Nine Inch Nails" (!) Here the MC gets … Continue reading 8:3 – She's gone away

7:18 – Billy

Lynch cuts to a night shot of pine trees from above. The shot looks as though it was captured with the use of a drone. We glide over the trees, barely able to make them out in the pitch dark. It's ominous and serene all at once. The dark hum on the soundtrack is replaced … Continue reading 7:18 – Billy

7:16 – Green Onions

Now for one of the most notorious scenes of The Return. We cut to the Roadhouse (indicating that this isn't where Part 7 will end, for anyone keeping note of the clock). The place is closed but inside Jean-Michel Renault (Walter Olkewicz) stands behind the bar busy with some endeavour. Booker T and the M.G.'s "Green Onions" … Continue reading 7:16 – Green Onions

7:10 – No show

The misty cascading hills around the town of Twin Peaks. Douglas Firs cutting up the low cloud. A low mood. The score has dread in it. Laura Palmer's Theme plays over these misty shots of the woodland hillsides surrounding the town. After a little time away with the FBI, we're returning to a troubled moment … Continue reading 7:10 – No show

7:4 – Call the doctor

David Lynch is a tinkerer. He may be best known as a filmmaker, but he's also a prolific artist and photographer, a musician and producer in this regard, and he also builds things. He has a well kitted-out workspace at his home where he builds furniture and lamps (lamps are a favourite of his). This … Continue reading 7:4 – Call the doctor

7:3 – Andy in the field

It's a rare thing for us to see Deputy Andy Brennan (Harry Goaz) in the field on his own. Throughout the first two seasons of the show he provided backup assistance (or ineptitude) to Sheriff Truman (Michael Ontkean) and Deputy Hawk (Michael Horse), or else could be found navigating the pitfalls of romance back at … Continue reading 7:3 – Andy in the field

7:1 – I think I’m high

Following those blissful, ever-so slightly chilling titles (play them at 1.5 speed for audio terror) we come straight back in to Jerry Horne (David Patrick Kelly) in his Hawaiian shirt and (possibly?) mother's hat, stood in the middle of the woods... somewhere. His point of view shows no sign of a trail, so mark of … Continue reading 7:1 – I think I’m high

6:13 – Something to do with your heritage

First of all, to anyone who had been checking this on a regular basis who has somehow returned, apologies for the delay in updates. You'd have thought the COVID-19 lockdown would've allowed plenty of time for me to forge ahead with this - and you'd be right - but the will to do so has … Continue reading 6:13 – Something to do with your heritage

6:6 – 324810-6

The next few scenes link together as one sequence. At the Double R diner, a woman named Miriam Sullivan (Sarah Jean Long) sits in a booth talking to Heidi (Andrea Hays) about cupcakes. The two women giggle together about deserts. Shelly (Mädchen Amick) chimes in that Miriam is one of their best pie customers (a … Continue reading 6:6 – 324810-6
