I'm waiting for Julee Cruise to show up at the Bang Bang Bar.

Candy? what's with her?

Obviously she's Dougie's sister  :D

Now that's what I call an episode! I don't think there's been a single bad episode so far, but there was something about this one. I think part of it is in how the disparate strands are starting to come together, but also in just how tightly and excitingly paced it is. Every scene was just exhilarating.

Just watched episode 12: turnip/turn up  :D  Loved the scene with Gordon, Albert and the French woman.

Ain't seen 13 yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Probably get a chance to see it later today or tomorrow.

Is everyone else still holding in on this very bumpy ride?  8)

Yep. Still great. I enjoy the different vibes from each scene, and characters. Only 4 episodes left, I have a feeling Lynch is saving the best for the final act which should start soon, the Cooper/Bob/Dougie connection is becoming clearer and it's time that Lynch throws in a trademark moment to throw the audience into a roller coaster like mind-f***.

This series has made me a fan of the band Au Revoir Simone.

I am far behind, but yes!  0:) 8)  In a few days, Mrs. Cato will have meetings and I will be alone  :(   ;)  :D  with the remote!

I really want to know what is going on with Sarah. I hope there is some great catharsis for her in future.

Audrey's situation remains thoroughly bizarre.

Also I loved the atmosphere in the credits scene at Big Ed's Gas Farm.

Also also, has anyone else noticed how weird the show's sense of time has become? Events as they unfold in different places are definitely not occurring chronologically, and while that may have been the case earlier it seems much more pronounced to me now.

To use a professional term, Audrey got brain damaged and is now a crazy  ???
If Charlie was actually appointed as her carer by Ben or something, that would explain the way he talks to her and his constant writing. It's totally in character for Ben too, he's always been extremely hands-off with his kids; we never really saw him with Johnny in the original show, and he only interacted with Audrey in the first place because she was interfering with his business prospects. However, if that is the case, it's probably less than professional of Charlie to let Audrey believe he is her husband. Very strange, but I'm totally on board with whatever the hell is going on as the show winds up to its denouement.

The Mitchum brothers entrance left me in stitches.

I still hope for a resolution to the Dougie / Cooper thing but my imagination fails me.

I actually forgot episode 14 was today  :laugh:


Watching now  :D

The onion continues to peel.
Can't believe there are only 3 more episodes. And as of now, a follow up to this season has not been agreed upon between Showtime and Lynch. Perhaps another 25 year cliffhanger?

I hated the whole glove story. Hope it's a setup for something more nuanced.

But a solid episode nonetheless. Man, I'd kill for a secret Bowie cameo, what an ace up Lynch's sleeve that would be.

I agree! I know those scenes were taken from Fire Walk With Me, but I got chills when Jeffries showed up.

My prediction:

Glove guy will end up killing EvilCoop, either by lodge intervention or by accident.

He seems a good match right?

Maybe we're up for some more arm wrestling. Still, the scene felt stupid. No disbelief from James whatsoever? C'mon.

Not exactly nuanced, but the glove did come in handy this last episode  ;D

I admit that I can't get "Wild west" by Lissie out of my head, since Episode 14. Just such a great upbeat pop song  :D

The use of the live performances at the bar has become so much a part of the show that I anticipate who will be next, and have enjoyed them all. And yes the Lissie song was great. As I said earlier, it's amde me a fan of Au Revoir Simone.

HOLY SHIT, one of the best episodes yet. Every single moment here was amazing  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Yeah, that was incredible. That episode offered one gem after another, and Badalamenti's music was so key in some of those moments. I might go crack open another beer and replay this one. Possibly the best episode yet.
