one of the darkest episodes so far
20 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It has been apparent throughout his entire filmmaking career that one of David Lynch's finest talents is his ability to subvert audience expectation. With this haunting, cryptic chapter in the Twin Peaks saga, Lynch creates an atmosphere even darker than usual despite a cheerful opening sequence. The opening had me smiling, laughing, and almost tearing up it was so damn heartwarming! It's the kind of thing you'd see in a (really good and effective) romantic comedy, setting this episode up for a much lighter tone than some previous installments, making me ready to draw parallels and compare it to episode 18 of season two, one of the most divisive Peaks episodes that focused mainly on the characters' love lives and all of the potential humor and heart that could be mustered from the romantic situations they were written in to. But, no, that prediction was dead wrong.

Aside from the opening sequence, this entire episode is grim, scary, surreal, sad, and, simply put, just flat out DARK! I am not sure I can stress this enough, because it's so ridiculously true I feel compelled to repeat it because the tonal shift wasn't even very noticeable until I reflected on the episode once I finished it! Lynch is a genius, pure and simple, and possibly the greatest filmmaker that has ever lived and ever will, and I use no hyperbole. He may not just be my personal favorite, he may be the absolute f*cking greatest in his field, he's like the James Joyce of cinema, a mad mastermind who gleefully peddles in pushing the envelope, tackling taboo topics, experimenting wildly with surprising success, and plenty more. And he's always got a sense of humor about it! Although this episode is unremittingly bleak and melancholic, Lynch still fits in moments of perfectly constructed black comedy ever now and then. Much of these moments are classic Lynch and recall such films as Mulholland Dr. (a brief, darkly comical moment featuring Jennifer Jason Leigh's character reminded me quite a bit of the classic moment in Mulholland Dr. in which the enigmatic character Joe seems to have such bad luck that he kills three people, which is not really a spoiler by the way) or Eraserhead and the slyly comical moments hidden within the dark surfaces of those films. Lynch can make you laugh, cringe, jump, and border on tears (a scene towards the end of this episode really got to me, but I don't wanna spoil it so just see it for yourself and bawl with me!), and this entire series proves this with biting intelligence and entertaining, but creepy and sometimes disturbing surrealist antics. Also, this episode heavily recalls my favorite entry of this season so far, episode 8! I was eagerly awaiting some more development on that, plus there's a huge scene dealing with Dougie that legitimately shocked me (no pun intended)m and will probably do the same for you, although we pretty much all knew something like this had to happen eventually...
