Storyline

In the cliff-hanging series finale, Cooper must face his innermost fears as he tracks down Windom Earle, who has abducted Annie and taken her into the hellish realm of the Black Lodge. Meanwhile, Nadine, wounded by a hit on the head during the beauty pageant, wakes up now back to her old self, and becomes very upset when she sees Big Ed with Norma. Donna struggles to control herself from Ben Horne's news, which leads to a fistfight between him and Dr. Hayward who angrily knocks Ben into a fireplace mantle for interfering with his family, and apparently killing him. While Truman and Andy wait and wait for Cooper to return from the Black Lodge, Andrew and Pete steal the safety deposit box key and go to the Twin Peaks Savings and Loan where Audrey is staging a feeble act of civil disobedience.

The best television episode ever aired
31 March 2006 | by s103505715See all my reviews

The final episode of Twin Peaks left many disappointed. "Too many loose ends!" they cried. "Too bleak and upsetting!" I can understand these criticisms but for me this episode of Twin Peaks is the pinnacle of television excellence. Not only did it pave the way for shows like Carnivale and Lost (although not for almost 10 years) it was a terrifying, gripping ride in which you genuinely did not know if there would be a happy ending. Unpredictable and totally original it was for me 45 minutes of near perfection - considering it was an unexpected end to the great series Lynch's achievement in creating this episode in such a limited time was spectacular. The wonderful surreal atmosphere of the Red Room, the beauty of the direction and the sheer bizarreness marked a new departure for television - I feel it is only now that Twin Peaks influence is being fully realised. Simply amazing.
