Storyline

In the cliff-hanging series finale, Cooper must face his innermost fears as he tracks down Windom Earle, who has abducted Annie and taken her into the hellish realm of the Black Lodge. Meanwhile, Nadine, wounded by a hit on the head during the beauty pageant, wakes up now back to her old self, and becomes very upset when she sees Big Ed with Norma. Donna struggles to control herself from Ben Horne's news, which leads to a fistfight between him and Dr. Hayward who angrily knocks Ben into a fireplace mantle for interfering with his family, and apparently killing him. While Truman and Andy wait and wait for Cooper to return from the Black Lodge, Andrew and Pete steal the safety deposit box key and go to the Twin Peaks Savings and Loan where Audrey is staging a feeble act of civil disobedience.

Great series...anti-climatic end
7 February 2016 | by pabloliveshereSee all my reviews

What an unimaginative bore of a finale for a drama so full of fascinating characters and skewed, cliff-hanging story-telling.

I can't even begin to make sense of this mess, and I'm frustrated and disappointed, but even more angry that two incredible series could be ended with such a disjointed, confused, not to mention, amateurish wreck.

I yawned throughout the all the curtain-wafting, reversed speech, and appearing and vanishing characters, which lasted for an eternity, in lieu of any actual plot.

It's understandable that there perhaps wasn't much of a budget for the 'black house', but this took the biscuit. By the time the plot-twist occurred back in the real world, I didn't care anymore.

And what about all the story strands left unravelled? Unforgivable.

What a dull, tragic waste of build-up.
