Storyline

Truman survives the attempt on his life by Ms. Jones, and returns to his job. Gordon Cole returns to Twin Peaks to reinstate Cooper into the FBI and to bring the classified file on Windom Earle, who is now eavesdropping on the police station with a hidden microphone in a bonsai plant. When Cole flirts with Shelly at the Double R Diner, her seductive appearance somehow makes him hear her voice. Enlightened that he can hear (at least her voice) Cole asks Shelly out on a date. Shelly is somewhat embarrassed, but flattered at the attention and accepts. Audrey continues pursuing Wheeler, but is thwarted by her father who sends her to Seattle on business. Donna enlists Audrey's help in investigating Donna's mother who may have a past connection with Ben Horne. Windom Earle continues stalking Cooper as well as making contact (in disguise) with Audrey, Shelly, and Donna.

Goofs

When Annie brings coffee to Dale and Harry, Dale's cup is facing down to the plate. The shot goes back to Annie and then back to Dale when she pours the Coffee and the cup is facing up. Dale couldn't have turned it over as his hands are still at the exact same position. See more »

Quotes

Dale Cooper: Gordon, there's some curious linkages here.
FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole: The word linkage reminds me of sausage. Never cared much for the links, preferred the patties, but breakfast is a real good idea.

Into the Recesses of Our Cave
19 August 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

As Windom plies his trade, the boys are on their way to a cave. This after that tall, striking lady who spoke with Catherine tried to kill Harry with a piano wire. There is love in the air as both Cooper and Cole are in their element at the Diner. All the principles are in danger as Windom takes a deck of playing cards and puts the faces of these people on the face cards. It is obvious that he wants total control over these people. Audrey is falling in love and we get an interesting scene with her father. Anyway, the conclusion is striking again as we find there is someone in the caves.
