Upon rewatching the second episode of Twin Peaks I have a couple of comments
to make...

1) Donna Horne (the bitch) seemed to have a black eye in one scene.  This 
   could have been a trick of the lighting, but the camera moved in for a 
   close-up, almost as if to emphasize it.

2) The man Laura Palmer's mother saw was not Leo.  It was someone we haven't
   seen before, maybe never again.

3) Leo looks like the best suspect yet.  When he was beating his wife over the
   'loss' of the shirt he backed her into a corner of an addition that was being
   built to the house.  She shrank back into the corner onto a pile of clear
   plastic sheeting, exactly like that in which Laura had been wrapped.  Coupled
   with the fact that Leo is a bad dude, and we have a perfect suspect.  Too
   perfect.  I am almost positive he is a decoy--Lynch wouldn't make it this
   easy.

4) At the end of the episode when the psychiatrist was listening  to the tape,
   Laura contrasted James with the Doctor (James was "Sweet, but stupid" while
   the Doctor was not Sweet or Stupid, I'm not sure which she meant)  She
   also mentioned getting lost in the woods, and then the tape cut off.
   Obviously these two were involved.

Well, thats about it.  Has a TV series ever been analyzed in this much depth
before?
