Twin Peaks: "Part 10" Review
Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
“An odd episode of Twin Peaks” just feels like a redundant statement, doesn’t it?
Not as strong as the last three episodes, “Part 10” wasn’t as information-focused as “Part 7” or “Part 9” nor as transcendent as “Part 8” (though, to be fair, has any hour of TV ever been like “Part 8?” That’s a rhetorical question. The answer is no).
It also was an episode that sort of double (or triple?) downed on the less than stellar depiction of/fate of women in this show, with notably violent acts perpetuated by Richard Horne against both Mandie, who saw his hit and run (and was murdered for it), and even his own grandmother, Sylvia Horne, plus Becky being abused by Steven, who’s just as awful as you might expect.
