Critic reviews for The Last Evening
I genuinely enjoyed this Twin Peaks season one finale, filled with some legitimately intense moments, but no moment got an actual fist pump other than Andy's turn as Dirty Harry. You know who agrees? Lucy Moran. Just look at her face.
There isn't much time for symbolism or quirk in this episode; it's all non-stop action and cliffhangers on top of cliffhangers.
Co-creator Mark Frost directs this finale to the first season, packing it with the sort of operatic cliffhangers characteristic of all such episodes.
This is still one of the best cliffhanger finale episodes in TV history, with almost every major character left in some sort of dire predicament that would need to be resolved the following season.
