Welcome to Diane… #27

Join Rosie, Adam and Mark as they gather to discuss episode 25 of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, sometimes known as On the Wings of Love.

This week on Diane the team talks RRRRROMANCE as our characters seek the blissful union that only a bit of the old in and out can provide. Harry wakes in the arms of a Helmut Newton-style assassin! Gordon goes all Tex Avery over a certain small-town waitress! And Wind’n'Erl searches for his Queen of Hearts…

  When love with one another so
Interinanimates two souls,
  That abler soul, which thence doth flow,
Defects of loneliness controls.
  We then, who are this new soul, know
Of what we are compos’d and made,
  For th’ atomies of which we grow
Are souls, whom no change can invade.

    I think Jones came up with a way for Josie to kill Harry, since his connection to Josie is why he was set to be killed. Makes it more literal with the weird hallucination at the beginning of this episode.

    The part of Cooper (judgements of Josie etc) that need an apologist turn is all the Cooper you find in the Cooper autobiography. Fair warning.

    The Mike/Nadine scene is my favorite between the two. Soooo fantastic. This is why I ship them as a couple for the new episodes. They’re both in the cast…

    You said: How Gordon responded to Shelly is how everyone should’ve been responding to Shelly in the first place. Well said my friend.

    Cooper tells Annie a joke :) Annie was literally all of the problems you mention this episode, but I too think she’s a good match for him. She just needed more episodes to connect with Cooper organically. The fact you weren’t sure if they were pursuing romance or friendship after that scene w the Gin and tonic explains that pretty well I’d say. She’s there as the focus of knights quest rather than as a living breathing character, from a production standpoint. They rushed her through to get her to a particular point in episode 28.

    How much better would this ep have been had Donna been contacted by a giant/tremond etc instead of snooping after her mom. Every other scene could remain the same.

    I love this iteration of Ben Horne…Beymer’s delight at everything…he’s virginal too in a way…a whole town of virginal vibes right about now. Makes sense the way the show had to do the hard reset after Lynch did a hard stop and Frost needed to be spread so thin. A lot of rebirths afoot. And I bet only half of them were explicitly intentional.

    While Earle turns the knob on the petroglyphs and things start to shake, imagine a cutaway to a Donna/Pierre Tremond scene where he distractedly looks off with a look of concern.
