Fantastic use of the oldie from the Paris Sisters. But the scene made me nervous. I was expecting something violent to happen. Now that I know better, I can re-watch with less anxiety  :D

I'm not commenting till I've seen it again but it was an extraordinary episode.


The Dr Jacoby scene might be his best yet too!  :o

Can't say I'm a fan of how the different characters, old & new, are introduced and then.. nothing, wait for the next episode or maybe the episode after that or whatever. This kind of fragmentation does nothing for me, so 5 was a letdown, as not much has happened, no progress whatsoever. Bad Coop's phone call was ace, though.

We did find out the purpose of Jacoby's golden shovels...that's some progress  ;D

But it's not intended to be a soap opera anymore, it's kind of the point  :-\

Yep, that completely destroyed certain theories....and made for one of the most hilarious scenes ever  :laugh:
(also Nadine was there too)

The show IS in itself a embodiment of development, but it's doing it in a less obvious way with a much larger scope.
But then not even the old serious showed everyone at once either

I think the release schedule has some problems. Since it was essentially written and shot as one long thing, the episodic format can feel odd, but I'm certainly excited to see where this is all going.

P.S.: Dr. Amp is amazing.

And here I thought Albert was looking for Audrey. Well played, well played indeed.

That said, this guy echoes my feelings about the show so far:

Quote from: Sean O'Neal, AV Club
Were a third of the way into the new series now, and for whatever comic joys Dougies storylines brought us in this episode aloneNaomi Watts chewing out Jeremy Davies (still in Justified scumbag mode); Dougie becoming an accidental, Being There-esque savant with his case file doodles; his fascination with the Clapperweve spent a disproportionate amount of time watching him dawdle around like Harrison Ford in Regarding Henry. That, plus the attendant, slow police investigation into his car bombing while junkie mom rants 1-1-9! across the street, still feels like padding to me. (Its enough to make me wonder whether Lynch and Frost responded to Showtime tacking another 10 episodes on to its original order by saying, Lets just double the Dougie stuff.) Meanwhile, the focus on Las Vegas takes up so much narrative room that everything else ends up feeling too rushed, to the point where all the other minor plot threads that have beenand continue to beintroduced seem even more like disconnected vignettes, making them easier to forget about. (Hey, remember Matthew Lillard? I wonder what hes been up to since we last saw him, five weeks ago.) Thats the balance I would like to see restored.

That said, I still have every reason to believe these disparate threads are all destined to convergethough still perhaps elliptically, and not necessarily in a way that will justify how much time weve spent in Vegas, specifically. And even throughout my frustration with the pacing, Im still delighted by how this series continues to upend all of my expectations from moment to moment. My greatest fear for the revival was that it would suck all the mystery out of the show by trying to recreate its peculiarities with too much self-awareness; that it would be Twin Peaks: The Force Awakens: enjoyable enough, but too stifled by its own need to nostalgically pander; that I would be bored. The fact that Im sitting here with you guys, debating whether Cooper being a catatonic goofball named Dougie whos unwittingly mixed up with mobsters and being hunted by icepick-wielding hitmen is detracting too much from storylines about a headless corpse tagged with Major Briggs fingerprints or a mysterious black box in Buenos Aires, or, or, or Well, its safe to say I never could have imagined this is what Twin Peaks 2017 would look like, and every week I cant wait to watch the next episode.
