Twin Peaks- The Return: What story is that, Charlie?

Twin Peaks – The Return is the most anticipated television event of 2017. Of course, being a huge admirer of David Lynch’s work, I jumped at the chance to cover this series for 1428 Elm. So, meet me at the Double R every week for a slice of pie and a damn fine cup of coffee.

Every end has a beginning.

And You Get a Car!

Things are certainly jumping at the Lucky 7 Insurance offices when the Mitchum brothers (James Belushi and Robert Knepper), the Pink Ladies and Dougie/Coop (Kyle MacLachlan) conga line their way into the lobby and straight to Bushnell Mullins (Don Murray) office. When Anthony Sinclair (Tom Sizemore) sees this, he starts to wig out.

The Mitchums come bearing gifts for the head honcho. They give him cigars and a brand-new BMW. Overwhelmed, Mullins has no idea how to thank them. While all this is taking place, Sinclair cowers by the side of his desk talking to Duncan Todd (Patrick Fischler).

Todd is pissed off because Sinclair failed to dispense of Dougie/Coop. So now, he receives an ultimatum. Either do the deed and do it in one day or face the consequences. After issuing his edict, he hangs up the phone and immediately calls for Roger.

Every Boy Needs One

Janey-E (Naomi Watts) answers a knock at the door to find a delivery man standing before her. He informs her that the Mitchums have ordered a jungle gym for Sonny Jim along with a brand-new BMW.

Of course, she is beyond pleased and immediately tells them to start unloading. The car is of particular interest to her because her eyes light up every time she looks at it.
