I agree whole-heartedly!  This was certainly the best episode in a
long time.  It seems that they finally decided that TP is not a
comedy, and not to portray it as such.  That has been my major beef
with the last several episodes.  Sure they're funny, but they're also
rather blunt.  Last night, you knew that whatever was happening in 
Twin Peaks wasn't funny anymore.

What did Ben see as he turned around after Audrey left?
What is that silver cylinder that was in the box?
And who was that old woman in the diner whose hand was shaking?
That wasn't Margaret, was it?  I'll have to go back and double-check.
I thought Kenneth Welsh was exceptional in this episode.  Earle is
truly mad.
Also, I have to give credit to my friend John for calling the shot in
Leo's big scene.  Is he really that stupid, or is his brain mostly fried?
Did anyone else see his ill-fated attempt at revenge coming?  I get
the feeling that Earle is going to keep an even closer eye on Leo, to
make sure his next attempt doesn't succeed.

I'm crying with you, Bud.
