Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur

Episode 15 of Twin Peaks, "Drive With a Dead Girl," originally aired on November 17, 1990, and was directed by Caleb Deschanel. When incompetent lawyer Jerry Horne arrives to represent his brother, Ben, they share a dream sequence from their past of Louise Dombrowski (Emily Fincher) dancing with a flashlight. Lucy arrives back at the Sheriff's office with her sister, Gwen (Kathleen Wilhoite), and the now-fertile Andy faints after seeing Lucy holding a baby. At the Double R Diner, Norma's mother, Vivian (Jane Greer), arrives with her new husband, Ernie (James Booth), who has a secret connection to Hank. Pete Martell visits Ben's jail cell with a tape-recorded proposition from the formerly disguised Catherine that may get him released if he cooperates. Meanwhile, Bobby listens to the tape he found in Leo's boots and plans his own proposition for Ben. Cooper and Truman encounter the unstable Leland, who drives recklessly, sings "Surrey With the Fringe on Top," and dances with his golf club. Cooper has the One-Armed Man examine Ben, leading Cooper to believe that Ben is not the killer. Truman charges Ben with the murder of Laura Palmer, and, for the first time, questions Cooper's investigation tactics. That evening, the body of Madeline Ferguson is found by the water, wrapped in plastic.
