Also known as “The Northwest Passage,” the two-hour pilot episode of Twin Peaks originally aired April 8, 1990. The central plot of the series is set when Pete Martell finds the body of high school student Laura Palmer wrapped in plastic by the water at the Packard Sawmill dock. As the town slowly gets word of her murder, Special Agent Dale Cooper from the FBI arrives in the Washington town of Twin Peaks to investigate. Assisted by Sheriff Harry S. Truman, Cooper retrieves Laura’s secret diary and a videotape. At the morgue, Cooper discovers the letter “R” from under Laura’s fingernail, evidence similar to the murder case of Theresa Banks a year ago. Meanwhile, at the Great Northern Hotel, Audrey Horne disrupts her father’s business deal, causing the would-be investors to back out. Deputy Hawk and Deputy Andy Brennan locate the scene of the murder and find half of a gold heart necklace. Also, Laura’s safe deposit box is opened, revealing a copy of Fleshworld magazine and about ten thousand dollars. Laura’s boyfriend, Bobby Briggs, who is having a secret affair with waitress Shelly Johnson, is brought in for questioning. Later on at the Roadhouse, Laura’s other boyfriend, James Hurley, kisses Donna Hayward, Laura’s best friend. This episode features Julee Cruise singing “Falling” and “The Nightingale” during the scenes at the Roadhouse. The American broadcast version ends with Sarah Palmer having a vision about the other half of the heart necklace. The European release contains extra scenes and an alternate ending. The Twin Peaks pilot episode was not included on the 2001 Artisan Entertainment DVD release of Twin Peaks: The First Season due to rights restrictions.
