After being shot by an unseen assailant, a wounded Cooper has a vision of a giant who tells him three clues to help with the investigation.

Quotes

Dale Cooper: At a time like this, curiously, you begin to think of the things regret or the things you might miss. I would like, in general, to treat people with much more care and respect. I would like to climb a tall hill - not too tall - sit in the cool grass - not too cool - and feel the sun on my face. I wish I could have cracked the Lindbergh kidnapping case. I would very much like to make love to a beautiful woman who I had genuine affection for. And, of course, it goes without saying that I would ...

Lynch Flexes His Muscles
4 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I can't begin to describe everything that goes on in this extended episode. We have murders; we have people left in comas. There are people who should be dead but aren't. The mill has burned down and a couple hundred people have lost their jobs. Audrey manages to escape the amorous, though non-deliberate advances of her father (he doesn't know it's her. Laura's father has his hair turn white for no reason. It happens after he commits an act to relieve himself of guilt. The girls continue their investigation. Cooper meets a giant who gives him three prophecies as he's close to bleeding to death on his hotel room floor. There is a marvelous scene where a room service guy comes in with warm milk and asks him how he's doing down there. Things continue as the ex-con, who appears charming begins to want his pound of flesh for serving time. I could go on, but that's enough to give you an idea. Lynch has moved into the surreal and the the bizarre and that's as it should be.
