I do love that even Richard's car is painted Lodge colors. 

Is it weird that he goes to all the effort of getting his dim sheriff buddy Chad to intercept the letter from Miriam but then goes and assaults and robs his grandmother in broad daylight on a suburban street?  Is there no danger of Sylvia turning around and calling the police on him for THAT?  He doesn't seem like a long game kind of guy.

No definitely not a long-game guy.  I have OCD and the way he cleaned up the truck after the hit and run was laughable.  Not that I want him to get away with it you understand, but the OCD part of my brain was screaming NO NO NO that's not how you do it!

I got the impression that's not the first time he's attacked his grandmother.  She really didn't want to let him into the house.  And families don't always report violence.

The next scene was of Carl somging in the trailer park. I expected it to get interrupted by a "BOOM", rather than the cup thrgh the window.

Well he says he needs the money to get out of town. He doesn't strike me as a man I would take at his word, but he might know that Chad's cover is not gonna hold forever so he could really be on his way out of Twin Peaks.

And by the way not calling law enforcement would totally suit Sylvia's character: a) she never did anything with Ben in the original show; b) it seems to be implied that it's not the first time Richard steals her money and she's using this as an excuse to ask money to Ben. Man she waited her sociopath nephew at the door, not the brightest way to avoid what happened.

Just noting the letter Chad intercepted was addressed to the station in general. Like Rob mentioned, Miriam could've mailed something to Harry or Frank's home address instead.

Did anyone notice that the address on the envelope Chad intercepted is written in two different styles of handwriting? No idea what that means, just an observation!!

elesea-honu, your comments are right on the mark and I thought some of the same when I was trying to make sense of it, but you brought out some other good insights.  You might be right.  What I don't recall was whether he was generally surprised she called the police and scheming on the fly what to do or whether he knew she had called the police because he heard from Chad but was fishing her for information.  I think he's obnoxious enough that he would have laughed and rubbed it in her face that of course nothing's gonna happen because he has connections or he already took care of that.  I hope she gets justice, though.  I sometimes like the 'reality' of bad people getting away with bad acts.  I don't want him just to suffer a horrible end, I want her to have justice.

Christen, I got the sense he is fleeing town, hence what I inferred was the most comprehensive and serious shakedown yet of his grandmother.  I don't think he's sticking around or coming back.

alina, good catch!  I saw that it was print and cursive when I was trying to determine whether it was Miriam or Marion to verify before.  I wondered if maybe it was someone in a hurry for their return address.  But it does kinda look like the print on the main is from a leftie and the cursive on the return is from a rightie.

meaxylon, I like that: Otherwise I'm hoping Miriam by mistake mailed her letter to the other Sheriff Truman ?

I wasn't thinking THAT Sheriff Truman.  But that would presume she would have some other address.

Also, she said she already spoke to the police, right?  Andy, Bobby, Hawk, Lucy, Trumans, someone other than Chad probably.  They could still probably connect the dots even if the real letter was gone, but I really like that it's the wrong name and he's too daft to realize it.

I watched it a second time just now and noted Miriam said, 'I already told the police, and I also wrote to the sheriff.' 

The other thing which speaks to people wondering about mail arriving the same day whether the night time scene where Dougie / Coop clearly enjoys a night of passion with Janey-E (those arms during and that smile after - hilarious) is meant to move time forward in twin peaks also (notwithstanding they may be on different timelines).

I'm a bit vague about law enforcement in the US, but in Twin Peaks everyone refers to the Sheriff's Department, the Sheriff or Deputes.  Did Miriam say 'Police'?  Is there a separate police department in somewhere like Seattle?

Hi Lynn,

Sheriffs are usually county officials and police are usually metropolitan or city officials.  And yes, there is overlap, and yes, that can cause some tricky jurisdictional problems.  =:-O

That's strange - even for Cooper

It was just the first time I noticed someone say 'the Police' - so she seems to have reported Richard's crime to them and was letting the Sheriff know what she'd done.  I wonder if police will suddenly appear OR if Richard Horne was suspected of crimes in other states, would that alert the FBI again??

As a side note I would like to point out that I'm glad Sylvia is back even if it's just for this one scene.  It always bothers me when a show sets up a whole family and then just drops them because they don't know how to include them.  Like, could we not have seen Audrey's mother after Audrey was rescued from One Eyed Jack's?  When she was missing for DAYS.  She may not be a very interesting character but come on now.

The sheriff's department IS a policing unit and can rightfully be called "the police". I got it like she called up someone at the police/switchboard and reported it, she didn't understand why he was not arrested and then escalated it to the Sheriff as he's the highest police authority in the city.

She called Ben. As someone else said, families don't always report such things to police.

I suspect he's afraid of Red coming after him, the police being a secondary concern. So he'll go on the run away from TP like he told Sylvia.
