FBI agent Dale Cooper remains trapped in the Black Lodge. The Fireman tells him to remember "430" and "Richard and Linda". Great Northern hotel owner Ben Horne introduces his brother Jerry to his secretary, Beverly. Deputy Chief Hawk gets a call from the Log Lady, who tells him evidence relating to Dale Cooper is missing. In a New York City warehouse, a young man, Sam, is employed to observe a glass box. When the security guard is absent, Sam and a young woman, Tracey, have sex. An androgynous entity, the Experiment, materializes in the box and murders them. In Buckhorn, South Dakota, Cooper's doppelgänger -- a sinister, long-haired man with black irises -- retrieves two associates, Ray and Darya. Police find the severed head of Buckhorn librarian Ruth Davenport placed on the headless corpse of a John Doe. Local principal Bill Hastings's fingerprints are found and he is arrested. Hastings denies guilt, but fumbles his alibi. Written by tenzin sia

A New Box of Nuts
10 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Obviously, there is so much here that was not available 25 years ago. We are immediately introduced to a surreal environment. Where is Dale Cooper? Why is he doing what he's doing? We have two main elements here. The first involves a young man, probably making minimum wage at some scientific installation. His one task is to watch a large glass box and report if anything changes. One day, he makes a fatal mistake when his sexual desires get in the way of his diligence. The second concerns an overweight lady who is scatterbrained, but suspects something has happened next door. After the frustrated cops get the key, they find a dismembered head on a pillow above a bloated body. When the CI's come in, they find fingerprints all over the apartment, belonging to the local high school principal. He is summarily arrested and interrogated by a police officer who has, in the past, been a good friend.
