Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Episode 26 of Twin Peaks, "Variations on Relations," originally aired on April 11, 1991, and was directed by Jonathan Sanger. While the Sheriff's department finds a petroglyph symbol at Owl Cave, Windom Earle announces his interpretation of the White Lodge, as well as his intentions of seeking out the Black Lodge. Major Briggs agrees to help decipher the symbol with help from his dreams. Pete tries to open the puzzle box left by Eckhardt's assistant, only to drop it on the floor and discover its contents. At the Double R diner, Gordon Cole (David Lynch) kisses Shelly and states, "You are witnessing a front three-quarter view of two adults sharing a tender moment." While at the diner, Cooper recognizes Shelly's poem as a sign of Windom Earle. Meanwhile, the Miss Twin Peaks Committee gathers together the contestants and plans the upcoming beauty contest with Ben suggesting a save-the-forest theme, and Dick Tremayne hosts a wine-tasting party at the Great Northern. That evening at Easter Park, Cooper and Truman find another dead body.
