Blue Rose Task Force Podcast Has a “Realization” About Episode 6

This week’s deep-diving spoiler-filled installment of the Blue Rose Task Force Podcast explores Episode 6—the seventh overall installment of Twin Peaks—using the full context of Twin Peaks from 1990 to 2017.

This week’s behind-the-scenes section focuses on how director Caleb Deschanel became involved with Twin Peaks, and decisions he made in some pivotal scenes. After that, the host traces Audrey and Cooper’s parallel paths to One Eyed Jack’s, and how they both cut corners to get there faster than they should.

Episode 6 contains a number of hasty decisions, whether it’s Cooper enlisting the Bookhouse Boys rather than investigating through proper channels, Audrey going in without backup, or Donna, James and Maddy impersonating the dead to break into an office for evidence. Crossing boundaries is the theme of the episode—whether from public to secret, legal to illegal, or signing on the line from unofficial to official. What happens when characters hastily go to the heart of the beast to achieve their goals?

The podcast also explores the episode’s omnipresent voyeurism, the numerous disguises, multiple recordings of the dead, and how some characters are waking up to truth. The host hypothesizes whose eyes the Log Lady Intro could be referencing, and asks how much impersonating Laura Palmer could be invoking her real spirit (and how it’s never a wise thing to do). A good amount of deep discussion for what seems on its surface to be merely a plot-heavy episode of television.
