In the cliff-hanging series finale, Cooper must face his innermost fears as he tracks down Windom Earle, who has abducted Annie and taken her into the hellish realm of the Black Lodge. Meanwhile, Nadine, wounded by a hit on the head during the beauty pageant, wakes up now back to her old self, and becomes very upset when she sees Big Ed with Norma. Donna struggles to control herself from Ben Horne's news, which leads to a fistfight between him and Dr. Hayward who angrily knocks Ben into a fireplace mantle for interfering with his family, and apparently killing him. While Truman and Andy wait and wait for Cooper to return from the Black Lodge, Andrew and Pete steal the safety deposit box key and go to the Twin Peaks Savings and Loan where Audrey is staging a feeble act of civil disobedience.

One of the best episodes in Television history...

The finale to Twin Peaks was everything you could hope for and more. David Lynch is back to direct this episode, and whoa, what an episode it is. The writing and direction are spectacular and spellbinding. This is Lynch at his most surreal. What I find truly amazing about the ending to the series is that it does not close the doors for the characters. It actually does not have much of the other characters besides Cooper and Windom Earle stuck in the Black Lodge. The scenes of Cooper dwelling deeper into the Black Lodge are completely bizarre and unpredictable, and I wonder what kind of reception it got back when it aired. I am sure many people would have dismissed it as being 'weird' for the sake of being weird, but that is what Lynch is. He is a master at surrealism and mystery, and it was part of what got me into Twin Peaks. The murder, and Lynch's trademark suspense. I also did find the fates of several characters very tragic (including my favorite character in the series, who happens to be female), but the way it happened was completely shocking and it shows just how unpredictable Lynch is. BRAVO to the series as a whole and to the amazing series finale!
