Welllll, I think that this probably applies to a lot of the characters
of Twin Peaks. Ben, for example. Jacoby, sort of. Laura, definitely.
Hank is doing this big time. And One-Eyed Jack's itself is a front for
a bordello, so that fits, too. I don't think it applies to Truman.
Josie's certainly hiding something, and I suspect that Donna is, too.
However, Cooper is completely what he seems, as is Leo.
The theme of "crawly bugs under the neatly trimmed lawn are battling"
seems to be a favorite of Lynch's. Sadly, it also seems to be a
favorite of the real world.

I don't think Truman's hiding anything. I *do* think that Josie's
hiding something from him. I bet that he ends up looking quite gullible
and foolish in a future episode. He's after Hank because he doesn't
trust him. He knows Hank's up to something, in an intuitive way that's
less developed than Cooper's. In other words, Hank's a bad 'un, and
Harry knows it.
