Twin Peaks Rewatch 52/53: The Return, Parts 17 and 18 in Twin Peaks Rewatch Episodes Posted September 5, 2017 1 minute ago, Mentalgongfu said: From what little we see, new Dougie seems about equal to sleeping Dougie Coop in his level of interaction, which seemed to be the happiest time in the life of Janey E and Sonny Jim. And I also assume he's an improvement over philandering Dougie prior to being replaced by Dougie Coop. So not as great as living with Dale himself, but still a nice ending. I feel like things going so well was somewhat contingent on Mike's helping hand, though. I don't think their lives will be universally bad and it's not like I think people without their full mental capacities can't be happy and experience love. But the scene did at least have a hint of sadness and melancholy to me. I felt an absence in Dougie's face that reminded me of when he cried looking at Sonny Jim. And I don't think I can endorse the idea that a cheerfully lobotomized husband is better than a philandering one. It left me with a mixture of emotions.
