The Return, Part 5

June 5, 2017 With the premiere event behind us, it's time for the first truly weekly installment of Twin Peaks season three. We're thrown headfirst into Dougie Jones' work life, we're given the identity of the John Doe in South Dakota (or are we?), we get our first glimpse at the next generation of Twin Peaks' troubled teens, and crucially, we finally learn why Dr. Jacoby wanted all those shovels. It's an episode full of setup, new characters, and new places. Where we're going from here is almost impossible to predict, and it feels great to be along for the ride.
