The finale invites us to inquire into our own motives for wanting to revisit the series.
The latest episode of Twin Peaks is most remarkable for its numerous arrivals and departures.
In the latest episode, David Lynch implicates his audience in Twin Peaks’s unfolding dream.
Lynch has always conjured up his disorienting and disturbing narratives according to an intuitive dream logic.
A damn good slice of cherry pie plays a pivotal role in several storylines from the latest episode.
Even apologists for deep-seated perversity will have a tough time justifying long stretches of the latest episode.
The episode divides its time between domestic drama, overarching mythology, and seriocomic pop surrealism.
As of the latest episode of Twin Peaks: The Return suggests, the darkness seems to be winning.
The episode’s frequent matched pairs and expository repetitions seem to draw attention to themselves.
The latest episode of Twin Peaks is a delirious descent into the murky matrix of material existence.
The episode uses David Lynch’s abiding preoccupation with mirror imagery as an often subtle structural device.
Many of the events in the latest episode of Twin Peaks seem to depend on the toss of a coin.

The first two episodes of the new season are largely preoccupied with sowing the seeds for later developments.
In the course of ranking the episodes from Twin Peaks’s first two seasons, aggregates or clusters of episodes tend to stick together.
The result is a game that’s both a slice-of-life drama and a surreal case study.
The power of the film is the endurance of an Elvis Presley song (or two), the staying power of a children’s movie, and the sight and sound of a match being struck.
