I like some of these new plots -- Andrew's revival was unexpected.

I think TP's current problem is that as it becomes more diverse in plots 
and subplots, people realize that Twin Peaks is, and always has been, a
Soap Opera.  Yes, it's "shot with a film-maker's eye", and it has lots of
unique imagery, but besides that?  It's a soap.  I don't think we can expect
a "grand unification" of every subplot -- Cooper's troubles with Windom Earle
have (and will have) nothing to do with the Packard subplot, and none of those
will deal with Nadine or James either. I don't mind this much.

It was interesting to see Hawk and Truman's reactions to Denise.  I don't
think cross-dressing is a usual thing in Twin Peaks. :)  I wonder if we'll
see more of Dougie's wife. She seemed interested in Cooper for some reason.

Well, this will be the last episode I can really post about this year --
over all, it's been interesting seeing the discussion about the show.  I don't
know how I would view the show without the net pointing out what I missed,
telling me about references to shows/movies I hadn't seen, and so on.  I'm
curious to know what happens next, both on and off screen for Twin Peaks, I
hope ABC feels that the audience is desireable enough to survive the lower
ratings.
