This article contains plot spoilers for the 2017 series of Twin Peaks.
Bushnell Mullins was a boxer and was the owner of Lucky 7 Insurance.
The next day, Jones returned with the files, in which he had drawn scribbles and lines. At first, Mullins accused the work of being childish, but soon seemed to understand what it all meant and offered to shake Jones' hand.
He gave a statement to the police after an attempt was made on Dougie's life and he noted the strange circumstances before giving Dougie the rest of the day off, suggesting they find answers the next day.
Mullins called Dougie into his office the next day, informing him that his case files revealed an organized crime conspiracy behind Rodney and Bradley Mitchum's real-estate claim for a hotel that burned down. It was indicated in the files that it burned on accident rather than because of arson, so Mullins sent Dougie with $30 million to reimburse the brothers.
The Mitchum brothers and their assistants brought Dougie to Mullins' office, bearing gifts for him: Montecristo Number Twos, diamond cuff links, and a BMW convertible.
Behind the scenes Edit
Bushnell Mullins is possibly a reference to Bushnell Keeler, a close friend of David Lynch who also was in his first 1967 home movie Sailing with Bushnell Keeler.
