A Peaks-heavy instalment alternates between side-splitting humour and gut-wrenching tension.

The majority of the action in the Return so far has taken place outside of Twin Peaks. In fact, this episode probably spent more time in the nominal town than any of the other parts up to this point. And not only was there a lot of screen time spent in the town, but it was used very effectively, giving the spotlight to characters who have been thus far underused in the Return. Nadine finally gets something more than a brief cameo. Norma appears in a scene where the focus is on her and not Shelly. Big Ed finally shows up. And so on. It was really nice to spend time with these characters again. However, the time spent outside of Twin Peaks was where the real meat of the episode happened.

When the episode opened on the Dougie Jones plot I cringed a little internally, but what followed turned out to be one of the funniest sequences in a scripted drama that I have ever seen. The end of Part 11 was the perfect setup for a joke, and the opening of the episode nailed the delivery. While nothing else in the episode managed to top that opening scene, the Jones plot still managed to deliver the laughs throughout the episode, as well as one very tense sequence with a funny ending. However, as tense as the coffee sequence got, it was undoubtedly topped by the Doppelcoop section of the episode.

After making a brief appearance in Part 9 then vanishing from the face of the show, we finally got to spend quality time with Doppelcoop again, and we get easily his best moment so far. Kyle Machlachlan has delivered a masterclass performance, instantly rocketing Doppelcoop into the annals of iconic villains; he's funny, terrifying, and believable. And in this Part we get the best stuff with him yet. The highlight was obviously the most intense arm-wrestling scene of all time, but his interrogation of Ray and his entrance into their lair were also fantastic. The entire sequence was without a doubt one of my favourites in the Return so far.

All in all, a very strong part. The first half delivered a brilliant blend of side-splitting laughs and gut-wrenching tension, while the second half was spent cozily revisiting familiar faces in the town of Twin Peaks. The only part of the episode I didn't like was the musical performance, which was something I had joked about but never expected to actually see. I can't believe Lynch did it. The mad bastard actually did it.
