-Nadine Hurley's scene was pretty great. First she looks like she's going to kill somebody with that Jacoby shovel and then when she said the phrase "such a bit*h" to describe herself I died laughing.
-In keeping with making all the soapy old relationship drama look like teenage romance we get Ed and Norma's stuff, this time better justified if only because it reminded me of the silly Back To The Future scene where Crispin Glover comes charging into the diner.
-Gene Simmonscoop's scenes where he visits the drugstore from the nuke-blast bit in episode 8 were all pretty creepy. Visually and atmospherically I mean. Was that Ronette Pulaski offering to open the door in backwards-talk? I guess not dumbass!! Heading into Inland Empire creep-o territory, here.
-Alas, no Bowie as the long-lost Jeffries. Hey, they did the right thing--I can't think of a single Sopranos fan that liked the ridiculous CGI effect on Tony's mother that they used to put her into a scene after she died IRL. Really heartbreaking that Bowie died when he did though--look at all the material in this new show involving his character. We lost a lotta Bowie here!!! Whoever it is doing his voice (I did see it in the credits) pulled it off well enough no?
-The drugstore disappearing in a bunch of flashes and smoke looks suspiciously similar to the ending of Kiss Me Deadly. That cannot be a coincidence!!!
-And now we'll get to find out who Judy is....good lord this thing should just have been called 2 Fire 2 Walkious.
-Only notable thing about those dull drug-addict scenes in the woods was a Mark Frost acting cameo. Fiddle dee dee.
-The special effect of the exploding face when Jennifer Jason Leigh blows away Patrick Fischler is hilarious if you watch it frame by frame.
-Okay, okay, confession time: I never cared for the Log Lady as a character, but her final scene made me bawwwww. So did all the subsequent scenes dealing with her. And they say "in memory of Margaret Lanternman" in the credits. Bawwwwwwwwwww. It would have still been effective if Catherine Coulson had lived but she didn't so now it's just flat out bawwwwwwwwwww.
-James locked in jail is a pilot callback, with Bobby and Mike's dog noises replaced with that dumb slobbering guy and eyeless Asian woman.
-Dull scene with Audrey and Tarantino McMidget!!! Weird pointless scene of Asian woman being shoved to the floor by goons! (Is there a f***ing bouncer anywhere in the Roadhouse, or do the people of Twin Peaks just live by some unwritten 1950s code of "don't charge anyone with assault"?) I guess Lynch had to balance things out with all the goodies in this episode.
