The Last Evening & May The Giant Be With You (Twin Peaks S1, ep. 7 & S2, ep. 1)

The Lost & Found column for The Last Evening and May The Giant Be With You has been shot in the chest for your reading pleasure on

Please spread the word!


  1. Huh, strange thing is happening on CHUD - I entered my comment and the anti-spam Captcha says you've typed the wrong code. I retype the new one and it says the same thing.

    I wonder if this is happening to others?

    Anyway, loving the recaps. There's something about that jazz track they use which is so cool, it gives the show real atmosphere.

    Funny seeing Alicia Witt playing the piano too. The Leland scenes give me the creeps.

    And the ending! wow! I can only imagine what people thought of that 20 years ago, spooky stuff alright.

    Keep it coming MMorse.

  2. Anon,

    I think that's a running problem for them. Some people seem to need to enter that damned code over and over again until, with no reason/explanation, it suddenly works.

    It's weird.

    Glad you're enjoying the return to the show. I'd completely forgotten how frightening the end of that episode is - it shocked me. Good job, Twin Peaks.

  3. Another good column! I think you're doing a very good job of balancing how much information to give away - I like the little clues that you drop about which lines and references are important, but I never feel like anything is being spoiled.

    I wish more episodes of Twin Peaks were double length. It's counterintuitive, but I almost feel like the slower an episode moves, the more I enjoy it.

  4. I'm with you on that, Katie. That stately pace is one of the show's strengths, in my opinion. It seems to really turn some folks off, but I really enjoy it even though it seems, as you say, counterintuitive.

    Glad I'm not giving stuff away. It's very tricky to try and point up important moments/dialogue without spoiling things. Let me know what you think of where the Major's story is headed!
