A Horne-centric episode featuring a number of uncomfortably long scenes

The episode's "title" (Let's Rock) had me hoping that this episode would feature some major events, perhaps the visit to Jack Rabbit's Palace. But it was not meant to be. While the episode started out promising plenty of plot development with a series of short, punchy scenes, it eventually slowed down to become one of the slowest, most uncomfortable hours in the return so far. David Lynch has a knack for making moments drag on and on, creating a mix of terror, humour, and impatience that can be most succinctly described as bewildering. He has put this to use many times throughout the return so far, but this is perhaps the most bewildering episode (not counting Part 8 which is in a league of its own).

The focus of this episode seems to be the Hornes. Jerry gets another short little scene, Benjamin learns of Richard's actions, and Audrey finally makes her return. It's amusing to me that after all of the mystery in the show and all of the hype in the fan base Audrey just shows up abruptly without warning and then spends ten confusing minutes yelling at someone we've never seen before. The scene left me with a million questions, so many more than I had before she showed up. After all that anxious waiting for her first scene, I couldn't wait for it to end as soon as it started. It was a great scene, but so uncomfortable. A less uncomfortable scene is Benjamin's conversation with Frank and then Beverly. Though no less drawn out, the scene had a sense of warmth and satisfaction to it. The warmth of old characters reconnecting, and the satisfaction of seeing them connect the dots. While I do miss Ben Horne's original series swagger, Richard Beamer has brought such a kind soulfulness to the character this season that it's hard to be disappointed.

My favourite scene of the episode was without a doubt the first one, in which Gordon and Albert explain the Blue Rose investigations to Tammy. It has formalization of some things we had basically figured out for ourselves, some thrilling name drops, and some titillating hints towards several of the greater mysteries. You know a show is cryptic when a mere exposition scene is satisfying as hell. I felt much the same about the diary scene in Part 7 only I liked this one even more because of the characters in it. For me, the FBI plot has been the strongest in the return so far thanks to the amazing cast of characters involved.

Oh yeah, and something's definitely wrong with Sarah.

Overall, I can't exactly say that I enjoyed this episode; I spent most of it in extreme discomfort. But I loved it. Though I am really starting to wonder how or if everything will be resolved in only six hours.
