The Score: 10 out of 10

When seeking a symbol to summarize David Lynch's career for this site's banner, the red room stood out as an indelible image in a career filled with unforgettable on-screen images. Here Lynch strikes a universal chord in viewers with dream-like surrealism as Laura Palmer reaches out from beyond the grave to a confused, empathic Agent Cooper. They meet in a red room populated with abstract symbols, where non sequitir stanzas are recited in response to basic questions and everything occurs backwards. Yet Lynch somehow makes this sequence feel tangible, real, and familiar as if we were dreaming it ourselves.

This Extended Shot of the Horne Family Dinner Demonstrates Lynch's Unique Brand of Humor
As mentioned at the end of our previous article, Episode 2 should be viewed in conjunction with Episode 1 for full effect. Although the series as a whole has remarkable continuity, each episode normally representing one day of the show's narrative, Episodes 1 and 2 are so tightly connected that both episodes improve when watched together. Episode 2 opens on a static shot of the Horne family at dinner with the opening credits playing over the silence at the table. In this simple extended shot, Lynch reveals a lot about the tension and apathy in the Horne family.

The world of Twin Peaks descends into a new layer of dark secrets as we learn the prestigious Benjamin Horne is not only involved in corrupt business dealings but also runs an illegal gambling and prostitution ring just across the Canadian border. As we increase our understanding of Ben Horne we are forced to ask ourselves what else he is capable of doing.

We have now been thoroughly introduced to Ben Horne's doppelgänger.

The drama heats up in Twin Peaks as abusive spouses punish their spouses in cruel and bizarre ways, driving a bigger wedge between them.

As their marriages circle down the drain, they become more dependent on their secret lovers for love and support.

Everyone Ponders What this Could Mean as they Look on the Broken Milk Bottle
This Group Now Suspects Leo Johnson Could be Involved in Laura's Death
While not insulting or downplaying the importance of deductive reasoning and more conventional investigative techniques, Agent Cooper apparently trusts in his subconscious mind more than any other Holmesian detective in fiction. Sherlock Holmes tends to downplay intuition in favor of cold rationality. But Agent Cooper is a man who is willing to follow down inductive paths of reasoning after deduction takes him as far as it can go. This scene partially encapsulates the style of Twin Peaks as a whole, a show that makes use of a strongly structured narrative, but is not afraid to make intuitive leaps to take us places we could not go alone with the unaided conscious mind.

From David Lynch's First Feature Film Eraserhead (1976). Lynch Designed and Stenciled in the Floor Pattern Personally
The Same Floor Design Appears Where the Fremen Harvest the Water of Life in the Extended Cut of Dune (1984)
And the Same Floor Design Appears Again in the Red Room Dream Sequence in Twin Peaks (1990)
When this episode first aired, Agent Cooper's dream sequence stunned an audience full of people who thought they had seen everything televisions is capable of conveying on screen. People watched something completely original, bizarre, and beautiful that jarred something deep inside our collective subconscious. The sleepers awoke and gained a new perspective on the capabilities of the medium and the potential of the art form of television, inspiring countless writers, directors, and producers to strive to make something truly creative and original like David Lynch achieved in this episode.

There is something fascinating and mysterious about the art of David Lynch that no amount of analysis or study can fully reveal, which is as it should be. Lynch's films appeal to something deep inside our conscious and subconscious minds. The experience Lynch creates is raw, primal, and elemental.
Twin Peaks Evokes the Sadness, the Questions, and the Mysteries Surrounding
a Beautiful, Popular Woman's Untimely Death
Lynch insists there exists an interpretation in his mind for what he puts on screen, but as explained in previous articles, he does not want to deny people their own opportunity to engage with his art on a subconscious level. And because of Lynch's powerful directorial style, Twin Peaks is a great and enjoyable viewing experience on every level of meaning and is worth many repeat viewings.

    But, if I may ask, why the next article is titled

    Are you going to skip some episodes? That would be shame.

  2. We are only going to analyze the episodes written and/or directed by David Lynch. The other episodes are great, but the emphasis of these articles is David Lynch.
