Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Episode nine of Twin Peaks, "Coma," originally aired on October 6, 1990, and was directed by series creator David Lynch. This episode contains the first of many significant references to owls throughout the series. Agent Cooper learns his old partner, Windom Earle, has escaped a mental institution and is missing. Taking over Laura's old job with Meals on Wheels, Donna delivers food to Mrs. Tremond (Frances Bay) and the magical boy (played by the director's son, Austin Jack Lynch), who delivers the message: "J'ai une âme solitaire," meaning "I have a lonely soul." When the deal with the Icelandic investors gets thwarted by a crazed Leland, Ben and Jerry threaten a scheme to get rid of him. Meanwhile, Bobby and Shelly begin a scheme of their own to deal with the still-comatose Leo. After the Log Lady tells Major Briggs to deliver the message, he meets with Agent Cooper and shows him the message: "The owls are not what they seem." After learning details about Laura's connection to One-Eyed Jacks, Audrey is caught by Blackie. She calls Agent Cooper for help, who is having a dream in which the Giant gives him another clue.
