Hmmm... I'm not quite sure what to think of this one. There were some 
good moments, a few okay, par-for-the-course moments, and more than a few 
incredibly stupid moments.
Cooper, by the 1-26 episode, will have been cleared of drug charges, more 
than likely, with these photos Audrey procured for him. Speaking of 
Audrey- did she kiss him and say "thank you" because she was thrilled 
that there were "female agents," or because (at least as far as she was 
concerned) Cooper was acting like a normal human being for a change? 

Gee, is it possible that "Dead Dog Farm" is the White Lodge? Naah... 
couldn't be. :) 

Could it be that Peyton, Engels, and Decshanel had just seen the movie 
"Problem Child" before writing this episode? :> 

So Major Briggs is back. Was it just me, or did the outfit he had on make 
him look like the silouhette we saw in 12/8? And everything, 
unfortunately, is not all right. 
The military evidently knows as well as the Giant that the owls are not 
what they seem - perhaps broadcasting stations for the White Lodge? 

Really bad moments: Every scene containing Hawk, the mayor, Dick, and/or 
Nick. The biggest stinker of them all was when Lucy walked into the 
"meeting" that they were all having. 

Really good moments: Cooper flipping the coin (was that a Buffalo 
nickel?), "I may wear a dress, but I still pull up my panties one leg at 
a time, if you know what I mean." "Not really." Every Ben and Bobby 
scene, Cooper and Denise/Dennis interrogating Ernie, and the final scene 
with Briggs, Bobby, and his mother. 

You know, they are still showing the Homecoming Queen picture of Laura at 
the end of the episodes - why are they still doing this? The Laura Palmer 
storyline is dead (uh, sorry, bad pun) and finished. But I just realized 
something: It is what every further TP plotline will be judged against. 
Even thought it is no longer part of the show, it still continues to be 
part of the show, if you know what I mean. And the BOB plot isn't 
necessarily done with, either.
