Subject: TP: 4/4/91, GREAT Episode (SPOILERS)
From: (Richard Guion)

C'mon, Peaks-Freaks!  What happened to the instant reviews of the
episodes five minutes after they appeared on TV?  It seems like people have
lost interest here.

Anyway, 4/4's episode was a return to greatness for the show.  The opening
scene with Eckhart's hit lady strangling Truman was gripping.  I actually
thought he *wasn't* going to make it there, for a few seconds.  I thought, well,
they might be cancelling the show, so this might be it for Truman!  But I'm
glad he survived the attack.

Questions on the attack:  What was it that the lady put on Truman's lips?
Perfume?  I'm going to have to go back and watch this again more closely.
Also, I guess it's just for dramatic effect, but she certainly had plenty of
safer ways to kill Truman than with the garotte.  I was expecting the garotte
to be wire-thin and sharp enough to cut through the skin.

Nice romantic interplay between Cooper and the waitress, and Audrey and
JJ.  I was disappointed to see the postcard from James, though--I hoped that
he was gone for good!  I almost get sick when I hear that guitar playing that
has become his theme song.

I've had a sneaking suspicion about the upcoming Miss Twin Peaks event and
Wyndham Earle's plans.  I suspect that none of the 3 popular actresses (Audrey,
Shelley, or Donna) will die, but that instead, Cooper's new love interest will die
because of WE.

The scenes in OWL CAVE were great.  I assuming that was BOB in his owl
form.  I guess it was a lucky accident that WE saw the inverted sign and turned
the bar upside down.  It sure does look like something is emerging out of that
wall now, doesn't it?  I just wonder how this ties into the Black Lodge.

Can't wait for next week!
