Who's new? Show all Laura's murder is the mystery that sets off Twin Peaks and which brings Dale Cooper to the sleepy town drenched in mystery. Her soul still appears to be trapped in the Black Lodge, along with Cooper.
The show's famous final scene sees him smashing his face into the mirror, as the killer BOB's reflection stares back out. Is he possessed? Shelly spent the series trapped in an abusive marriage to trucker Leo Johnson, whose fate was left uncertain at the end of the show, though her own secret affair with Bobby Briggs ended in a marriage proposal. Bobby found himself in a lot danger during his high school days thanks to his involvement in the local drug trade. Though formerly Laura's boyfriend, his secret romance with Shelly blossomed over the series and ended in a proposal.
Ed Hurley's eccentric wife, possessing both phenomenal strength and an obsession with drape runners, saw her attempted suicide trigger a bout of dementia-amnesia, where she still believed she was a teenager. After having a sandbag dropped on her head, however, Nadine's memory was restored. The owner of the Double R Diner, she and Ed have been in love since high school, and the show saw them come very close to finally getting together during Nadine's bout of memory loss.
Will they still be pining for each other? With Nadine's memory returning at the end of the series, the implication is that Ed and Nadine's marriage has remained intact. Ed suffered tremendous guilt over the loss of Nadine's left eye in a hunting accident during their honeymoon, when it was struck by a piece of buckshot from his gun, which has made him feel like it was impossible to ever leave her. A master manipulator whose teenage crush on Cooper faded when she met Billy Zane's rich charmer John Justice Wheeler, the show left things open as to whether she died in the explosion at the local bank, having chained herself to the vault door in protest.

Twin Peaks' biker with a soul was once Laura Palmer's secret love, though her death saw him realise his true feelings toward her best friend Donna Lara Flynn Boyle. However, by the end of the series, James had left the town and was en route to Mexico. A group of women, led by Mistress Coyle, unhappy with these developments, leave New Prentisstown and reform a resistance movement from the time of the Spackle War, known as 'The Answer'.
They carry out a series of bombings in New Prentisstown in retaliation to the invasion. Uncivilised and arrogant, David nicknames Todd "pigpiss" and exercises his authority by forcing Todd to undergo immoral practices. For example, branding the Spackle with metal bands in the absence of painkillers The two constantly argue and Todd himself is shocked by David's inability to feel compassion.
This is where one of several large bombings happens.
The Tyranny of Dead Ideas: Letting Go of the Old Ways of Thinking to Unleash a New Prosperity
Todd, trying to redeem himself, saves a Spackle, , but his heroics go unrewarded. Angered by the attacks, President Prentiss sets up a counter-intelligence unit called The Ask. He promotes Todd and Davy into this unit, where Haven residents are captured and tortured for information on The Answer. The next morning, Viola wakes to find that the House of Healing is completely empty except for one healer; Corinne.
All the others have left to join the Answer, led by Mistress Coyle. Eventually, though, Mistress Coyle returns to recruit Viola, who feels that she has no choice but to join, knowing that President Prentiss has been torturing women and men alike. At this time, Todd realises that he must choose a side, and is urged to do so by President Prentiss. At first, he knows he would unconditionally join Viola, but is convinced otherwise after a series of bombs kill all the domestic Spackle.
Enraged, Todd is convinced that the Answer is behind these bombs. One Spackle, , is found by Todd amongst the charred bodies, and Todd tells him to run from Haven. She is also taught by Mistress Coyle to assemble and set off a bomb, and actually does this during an attack. There is also an older teenager, Lee, who befriends her. He is intent on avenging his family, who have been taken prisoner by The Ask. On his way back to his bell tower prison, Todd tells Davy about the Spackle bombing, and is surprised to find that the two now share a somewhat friendship.
Meanwhile, Viola and Lee arrive in Haven to rescue Todd, knowing that otherwise Todd will die in an attack on New Prentisstown led by the Answer the next day. Viola finds Todd, only to discover that he is unwilling to leave. She noticed that there is something darker to his personality, but still urges him to leave with her and Lee, warning that the Answer will attack from the east. However, this conversation is cut short when Mayor Ledger emerges, explaining his loyalty to President Prentiss.
