SUNDAY MARCH 4

Over at the Great Northern, Cooper is telling Albert about the Tibetans and their past. Albert (not happy about their conversation) tries to change it and Cooper tells him that Ronette has awaken from her coma. Behind them, a quartet is singing. Cooper tells Alfred that he is going to show Ronette the drawings of Leo and also BOB. Alfred asks Cooper if anyone has seen BOB on earth in the last few weeks. He explains that he did an autopsy on Jacques and found cans of beer, Maryland license plate, half a bicycle tire, goat, and a small wooden puppet named Pinocchio. He also says that Jacques was killed by being snuffed with a pillow. Mill: Albert nominates Leo. He also says that Mr. Droolcup remembers nothing. Cooper tells him that his ring is now gone. Albert explains that another reason he is back is because of Windom Earle who has now escaped from a mental hospital. Behind them, an Asian man is watching Cooper.

Donna is busy working on Meals on Wheels and comes upon an old woman and her grandson: the Tremonts. Mrs. Tremont is in bed and the grandson is sitting in a chair. The grandson says that sometimes things can happen just like this–he snaps his fingers. Mrs. Tremont sees creamed corn on her plate and doesn’t like it. She didn’t want creamed corn. Do you see creamed corn she asks again and now it is gone. The grandson is now holding it in his hands. “My grandson is studying magic,” she tells Donna. Donna explains that she is taking over Laura’s place on Meals on Wheels. Mrs. Tremont says that she didn’t’ know Laura very well. Donna gets up to go when Tremont tells her to ask Mr. Smith next door. The grandson speaks something in Latin. Donna leaves and goes next door. She knocks but no one answers. Inside the other house, the grandson says to Tremont: She seemed like a very nice girl. Donna leaves a note for Mr. Smith and goes to leave. The blinds move–he is watching her.

At the hospital, Cooper and Truman go to Ronette’s room and try to figure out how to make the stools shorter. They finally sit down and Cooper shows Ronette drawings: Leo and then BOB. She reacts violently when she sees BOB and starts to scream. She starts talking about the traincar and knocks the lights out with her swinging hands.

At Ben’s office, the brothers are trying to figure out what to do with the ledgers. If they were to burn one, there could be a problem either way. They instead decide to burn marshmallows over the fire.

At the Double R, Andy is trying to put up a HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN poster of BOB as Major Briggs looks on. The Log Lady enters and Norma nicely asks her not to spit her gum out on the booth or on the counter, and to use the ashtray. Briggs and the Log Lady talk with each other. She says that her log has something to tell him: “Deliver the message.”

At the station, Andy is pacing outside while Lucy tries to kill a fly. He enters and confronts her telling her that there was no way he could have a baby because he is sterile. In his hair he has a piece of tape and Lucy leans forward and rips it out his hair.

In Truman’s office, Cooper and Harry talk to Hank and get him to sign in like a good boy, as Harry said. Harry then explains how Hank used to be a Bookhouse boy when there is a phone call from Ben. He tells the cops that he can’t find Audrey and that she has been missing for two days.

Back at Ben’s office, Jerry enters with an insurance policy unsigned. Jerry calls the Icelanders as Leland comes in to suggest exactly as they are currently doing. Leland had already called the Icelanders about the mill burning down much to the unhappiness of Ben. While on the phone, Leland sees a picture of BOB on the HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN poster. He leaves his office saying that he knows that man on the picture from his grandfather’s summer house at Pearl Lakes–he lived next door when he was a boy.

At the hospital, Hayward explains Leo’s condition to Shelly which isn’t’ very good.

At the station, Lucy receives a phone call from someone who wants to talk to Truman.

Over in Canada at Jack’s, Audrey enters a room that Emory Battis is in, all tied up. She gets the information that she needs about Ronette and also Laura: they both worked at Jack’s by choking him with the electrical cord from the vacuum cleaner. Laura was thrown out because she was doing drugs. He also says that Ben knew Laura worked there–hints to the fact that they had sex.

Down by the river, Bobby and Shelly are together. They discuss taking care of Leo in order to get free money. They proceed to make out in Bobby’s dad’s Continental.

Cooper is speaking to Diane on the recorder telling her about Earle’s disappearance as well as Audrey’s absence. There is a knock at the door–Major Briggs. He shows Cooper a print out of deep space information that he keeps track of at the base he works at. He does tell Cooper that he must maintain deep space monitors that they receive communication space garbage. Thursday night/Friday morning when Cooper was shot, there was a change in the readout: The owls are not what they seem.” Then he showed him: Cooper, Cooper, Cooper.”

Over at Donna’s house, James, Donna and Maddy are singing a song:

Just you and I
Just you and I
Together
Forever
In Love

Just you and I
Just you and I
Together
Forever
In Love

In Love
We go strolling together
In Love
We go strolling forever

Just you and I
Just you and I
Together
Forever
In Love

While singing James and Maddy are looking at each other. Donna becomes upset and runs out. James follows her and they talk and kiss as Maddy sits by herself. The phone begins to ring and her father answers it: from Harold Smith. They plan to meet to talk. In the other room, Maddy sees BOB walking in from the kitchen and toward her. He climbs over the couch and over the coffee table. She screams. The others do not see anything.

We see the Giant waving his hand in front of a sleeping Cooper again. Then a picture of Ronette and then a hazy picture of BOB. the Giant says,
“THE OWLS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM.” Then Briggs says, “THE OWLS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM.” Flashes of light and pictures. We see BOB and an owl superimposed over his face. Sarah runs down the steps of her house. BOB walks closer and then comes into focus and laughs.

The phone rings in Cooper’s room. It’s Audrey and she tells him that he saw her in a tuxedo. Blackie hangs up the phone stopping the phone call. Blackie tells her that she “doesn’t know what trouble is…not by a long shot.”
