The former Russian president appealed to his Cold War pal, George W.H. Bush to get the show's creator, David Lynch, to spill the beans on just who was behind the death of Homecoming Queen.
Gorbachev, new Soviet leader and hooked on Twin Peaks as it aired in Russia, called the president as a matter of urgency as his impatience had got the better of him. I know how he must have felt. I put up with hours of Agent Cooper's hackneyed investigations and rock tests when all I really wanted to know was if it was her coke problem which led to her biting the dust.
Bush, desperate to try and and keep those superpower relations in good health, called in a favour to his friends over at Aaron Spelling Productions, the team behind the show, but to no avail. The fact that even the President wasn't allowed to know whodunnit led to speculation that David Lynch didn't know who'd killed his ghost protagonist, which would explain why we had to wait until series 2 episode 7 to be slightly underwhelmed.
No you don't Kyle MacLachlan.
