The first episode of the second season of Twin Peaks, "May the Giant Be With You," originally aired on September 10, 1990, and was directed by series creator David Lynch. This episode features turning points for some major characters as well as several occurrences of supernatural visions. The wounded Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) has his first visions of the Giant (Carel Struycken), who gives him three clues and takes his ring. At One-Eyed Jacks, the disguised Audrey (Sherilyn Fenn) manages to avoid her father as a client and gets imprisoned by Blackie (Victoria Catlin). Now that Jacques is dead, Leland's (Ray Wise) hair has turned white and his previous grieving has turned to insane happiness, in which he dances and sings "Mairzy Dotes." Donna (Lara Flynn Boyle) also goes through some changes by wearing Laura's sunglasses, smoking cigarettes, and volunteering for the Meals on Wheels program. Maddy (Sheryl Lee) has a brutal vision, and Major Briggs (Don Davis) has his own vivid dream, which he shares with his son, Bobby. At the Sheriff's office, Albert Rosenfeld (Miguel Ferrer) returns and forms a theory with Agent Cooper about the night of Laura's death, which includes the presence of the killer, BOB. After the mill fire, Josie and Catherine are missing, and Shelly and Pete are in the hospital. As Leo (Eric Da Re) barely survives in a coma, the last known living person at the murder scene -- Ronette Pulaski (Phoebe Augustine) -- starts to awaken from her coma to have disturbing visions.
