As we move on from the Laura Palmer storyline, much like Garland Briggs, we go into the wilderness. As Hawk tells us this week, every soul must pass through the Black Lodge on their way to the White, and so we at Damn Good Podcast pass into the darkness of season two's horrible flabby middle. We deal with the likes of Little Nicky, Evelyn Marsh, more about Vivian and Ernie, Hank, fucking James, and Nadine's stint as a high school wrestler. It all hurts.

For the rest of the season, Damn Good Podcast will be doing more of a digest of three episodes at a time. We recognize that the back half of Season 2 is nobody's favorite, but we still want to give it some scrutiny. Each episode, rather than going scene by scene, will go character by character and we'll talk about what the show is doing. Hope you enjoy the new format that, hopefully, will take us all the way to the premiere of Season 3.

Resolution. When Arbitrary Law originally aired, a lot of the audience for Twin Peaks had already abandoned it, perhaps not accepting the resolution that they'd been shown when Leland/BOB killed Maddy. It's a shame they did, because the performance Ray Wise gives here at the end of this episode is a treasure, as he vacillates between BOB pretending to be Leland, BOB unleashed, and then finally, true Leland at the end, as he realizes and remembers what he's done to Laura. It's wonderful and heartbreaking, and as with the last episode, is surrounded by dull and uninteresting. But for a moment we can ignore all that. We can spend the time at the roadhouse as Cooper puts things together, we can revel in the return of Don Davis as Major Briggs, and delight in the unexpected catchphrase "That gum you like is going to come back in style." As we bid farewell to this plotline, and recognize what awaits us in the middle of season two, we can, just for a moment, treasure what we've had.

We're in a post-Maddy world, now, and the "Who Killed Laura Palmer?" storyline is barrelling toward a conclusion. Ray Wise delivers a terrifying and sublime performance as Leland who may or may not be behind the wheel of his own body. We see him slide between composure, meek Leland, and the anger of BOB. Unfortunately, interspersed with a truly great and meaty storyline are Norma's mother Vivian and her new husband Ernie, Bobby's plan to blackmail Ben Horne, Lucy and Andy and Lucy's incredibly irritating sister Gwen, and a love story for the ages between Donna and Bland, erm, Egg, erm, James. The Laura Palmer storyline continues to dwarf everything around it as the shows cracks widen.
