Season 2 ep. 1 "May the Giant Be With You"

Go deep into the production history of Twin Peaks Episode 8 as it kicks the supernatural mythology of Twin Peaks into gear, then stay for an exploration of the Giant and his clues, what happens when music is in the air, and what happens when you wear Laura’s stuff. All this, plus visions from Maddy and the Major, Audrey’s predicament, a thesis statement from Jacoby, and nightmare-creating memories from Ronette.
