Rosie, Mark and Adam get up at midnight for the tenth episode of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, The Man Behind the Glass.

This week on Diane it’s a slumber party. Audrey is eating candy in bed, Donna gossips with her dead best friend, and Ed sings Nadine a lullaby. The events of the recent days overwhelm Maddy, who feels that she’s fallen into Laura’s dream.

It’s almost like they didn’t bury her dead enough.


My name will recall the countless stars under which new lovers kiss. Death ferries me to a distant shore while striped fish spawn on turquoise waters, while black fish leap in white rivers.

    I still haven’t been able to look into this properly…does anyone know if this really is the only time Ronnette appears in an episode NOT directed by Lynch?

  2. Adam Says:

    Just checked IMDB. Looks like it is the only one, yep

  3. Rosie Says:

    Ronette is a particularly haunting figure in Twin Peaks I always feel. She was within touching distance of the event. I really like Adam’s discussion of trauma with reference to Ronette, I think she embodies the trauma in a way that makes her quite difficult to handle as a character in the story. Her silence and her absence make sense to me in this respect, it almost feels like it would be easier for everyone if she had just vanished. Poor Ronette.

  4. John Says:

    It was definitely easier for her to vanish like she did, but it’s still sad for her as a character….I think I’m adding her into my Donna/Supernatural Alternate Future Episodes mix. She could’ve come to Donna because she had a dream telling her to, or something along those lines, giving her character a chance to heal a little too. Two episodes, maybe three is all you need. I agree that her character represents trauma and it’s really hard to focus on that for too long, but this show takes long hard looks at so many similar things that there could’ve been some room.

  5. Mark Says:

    John, you´ve just given me some proper Ronnette thoughts! Thanks!

  6. John Says:

    Glad I can give you something to ponder, Mark. Me, I’m looking dangerously over the edge of fan fiction right now. Anyone want to pull me back over, I’d appreciate it.
