| Plot twists, gratuitous violence, and the moment we've all been waiting for; this episode gives new meaning to the word satisfying.
This is without a doubt the most action-packed episode of The Return so far. It has two massive plot twists, delightfully gratuitous violence, and the scene that the entirety of The Return has been building up to. I'm referring not to Audrey's arrival at the roadhouse (although that plot was insanely drawn out) but to Cooper's awakening. I had feared that he would only be appearing in the very last scene of the season, so to see him not only appear, but play a large role in this episode as his old self (with two episodes to spare) is immensely satisfying. I was grinning like a fool every second he was on screen. Yet amazingly, despite how long we have waited and how gratifying it therefore is, the rest of the episode manages to match or exceed the heights of his scenes.

Aside from giving us back our favourite character, the episode also gives us a whole lot of violence and death. Most of the violence in the return so far has been disturbing and shocking, but in this episode Lynch goes the complete opposite direction ad makes it all gleefully gratuitous and over-the-top. It helps that the casualties were mostly unlikable characters, but it's also a matter of the execution. The violence in this episode, especially the insane shootout in Vegas, seems like a tribute to Tarantino in its escalation, gore, and comedy.

The episode also featured two major plot twists in two major stories. In both cases I had known for a while that there would be some sort of twist, but I had no idea what they would be and when they did hit me in this episode they caught me completely by surprise. Admittedly, they raise more questions than answers, but both these story lines have been going for so long that it was thrilling to get anything.

Overall, this may be the greatest part in the return so far. The slow burn of the middle section is finally paying off as these last three episodes have sped up to astronomical pace. I'll be sad to see it end next week.
