Amazing episode.  If Part 8 was pure heroin Lynch, then Part 16 (double-8?) was pure heroin Twin Peaks.  In the fan community, there is near universal agreement.  It scored a 9.8 post-episode survey result on Reddit – completely blowing the previous high score of 9.2 for Part 14.

Third Day Theories: A Recap of the Latest Theories, Analysis and Predictions Generated from Season 3 Part 12, Let’s Rock
