Northwest Passage recap
The small northwest town of Twin Peaks, Washington is rocked when Pete Martell, husband to the local lumber mill operator Katherine Martell, finds the body of Laura Palmer is discovered washed up on a riverbank, wrapped in plastic. FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is called in when Ronnette Pulaski, who attended the same high school as Palmer, is found wandering on a bridge, across the state line, before lapsing into a coma. Cooper believes there is a connection between Palmer’s death and the death of another girl named Teresa Banks that happened a year earlier. Cooper discovers a small piece of paper with the letter “R” on it shoved under Laura’s fingernail. He tells Sheriff Harry S. Truman that under Banks’s nail he found a “T”. Meanwhile, the Palmer family and friends struggle to come to terms with her death, and wonder how it might have come about.
With indications that this is the same killer who struck the previous year, Cooper starts an official investigation. Meanwhile, the rebellious Audrey Horne, daughter of local businessman and hotel owner Benjamin Horne, ruins a business deal for her father; Sheriff Truman arrests Palmer’s boyfriend Bobby Briggs, who is secretly seeing a married woman named Shelly; Palmer’s best friend Donna Hayward and Palmer’s secret boyfriend James Hurley discover a mutual attraction; and Laura’s mother is terrified by a vision.
