I think it's gonna get worse for you, Sanjiv.  I think Ben Horne is Laura
Palmer's father (and that therefore they had an incestuous relationship)
as well.  No really strong evidence yet, but there are hints: Ben buying
a pony for 12 year old Laura, Sarah seeing Laura's face in Donna (who would
also be her half-sister), etc.

J. J. Wheeler told Ben to tell the "hardest truth first", and Ben seemed
to listen.  That means, almost certainly, that he's going to tell a hard
truth next episode.  Now, he could tell something that we (the audience)
already know, but that would be boring.  He's going to drop a bombshell
(it may be completely different than my little theory, though).

Get it: Twin Peaks is a soap opera and always has been, straight from the
pilot.  Lynch+Frost sold it as a soap before the first episode was ever made.
