See https://www.twinpeaksblog.com/2018/07/0 ... yed-jacks/ for some wonderful photos. I’d love to own that place.


Thanks for posting this. The house is amazing. The painting above the stairway is similar to, but not the same as the one from the show, contrary to the observations of the author. The same poker table is there by the window next to the pool table. The same ornate metal cash register sits at the bar. The same drugstore style "wooden Indian" statue is at the top of the little staircase to the right of the very strange fish tank type thing. It's so fun to look for all of the various little elements. I hope all of those things are still there.


Thank you Jasper. I have updated the article. I wrote it so long ago before I refined some of my searching and reporting techniques.

Perhaps the agent approaching her was a ploy to get her in the right place at the right time, which it did, was the only thing I could think of to make sense of it. But that doesn't have the benefit of any on-screen affirmation.


That makes the most sense; good thought. It has the benefit of giving Ben/Josie the same goal as the writers (to get Catherine where she needs to be), so they maintain their intelligence. I do love the Catherine/Neff dynamic in that E6 scene, and it would be sad if he was being duplicitous...but it would certainly fit with his name reference!

We get a glimpse of Cooper’s room key in this episode (possibly the only time in the original series?). Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t quite match the one in TR (which is one my less favorite props due to the on-the-nose/meta Cooper quotation printed on it).

Nice catch! The quote is so absurd. I'm a fan of the theory that it underwent subjective transformation. It went into, and then out of the lodge, and the door it later unlocks was for sure not the keyhole intended in basic reality. A valid way as any to account for what might merely be prop oversight, like with the strangeness of Annie's dress.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.

Nice catch with the room key!

I just realized that Cooper's room number (315) corresponds with the two giant wall sockets in the Mauve Room in S3 Part 3 ("15" first, and then "3"). That's a neat level of detail on the part of Lynch/Frost. I love how this show rewards repeat viewings.

The most action packed episode yet. Only a few things to note on this viewing:

'There's gotta be a way to turn it off' - I've always hated this (presumably looped) line from James as he's still saying it as he turns the music off.

Poor Nadine. Wendy Robie's done such a great job this season to take this outwardly quirky character and give a glimpse of the vulnerability and sadness beneath. As much as we might want Ed and Norma to be together, Nadine really doesn't deserve the hurt.

Hank, on the other hand, deserves all he gets. And he gets to many places this episode - Blue Pine Lodge, the diner, the Johnson's place. Perhaps he has his own doppelganger to help him keep up with his many activities?

I wonder if the Midge Jones in Pete's yearbook later became Midge Loomer, the vet's receptionist?

Quick cutaway of Cooper and Truman running into the station in the rain yet they're completely dry once inside. James and Leland are also dry when they arrive and no sign of rain through the station door.

Feet are visible outside Cooper's door from the moment the phone rings so his assassin must be building up the courage to knock. 'Who Shot Cooper?' clearly meant to be the next 'Who Killed Laura Palmer?' although it actually ends up being one of the least memorable events in the series - by the time Cooper gets out of the hospital bed next episode most viewers have likely forgotten how he got there.

I actually kind of like it. Like when you’re saying something that you negate midway through and just feel the need to finish your thought in progress so the other person knows what you were going to say. I feel like I’ve done this.

She’s great. It’s such a shame what they did to her character in season 2.

Return to “Season 1 (1990)”
