White Light White Heat–Twin Peaks, episode 8, season 3

How weird was Twin Peaks episode 8, season 3 last night? The show entitled “White Light White Heat” was following the narrative of Agent Cooper’s doppelgänger and his escape from jail, and then it veered off on another tangent altogether, back to the dropping of the A-bomb. Very bizarre. I kept watching it though, trying to figure out what was going on. I believe it was some kind of impressionistic view of mankind after the dropping of the bomb at White Sands, and then there are some alternate realities thrown in. Many of the images remind me of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. This episode is the weirdest and most inexplicable yet of season 3, a season of many weird episodes so far, but nothing like this one, which is sui generis.
