- Not to be confused with Part 7.
"Episode 7", also known as "The Last Evening", is the first season finale of Twin Peaks.
"A drunken man walks in a way that is quite impossible for a sober man to imitate, and vice versa. An evil man has a way, no matter how clever. To the trained eye, his way will show itself.―Margaret Lanterman[src]
Am I being too secretive? No. One can never answer questions at the wrong moment. Life, like music, has a rhythm. This particular song will end with three sharp sounds, like deathly drumbeats."
Donna and James enter Jacoby's home. They ask each other where to start looking and find a box full of margarita umbrellas, all labeled. Donna finds the controls for the ambient noise and James quickly turns it off. Donna finds the coconut that Laura mentioned in her tape, and it contains a tape and half a heart necklace. Bobby watches James and Donna pull away.
Jacoby creeps around the bushes towards Maddy. A man in a balaclava and a trenchcoat beats him mercilessly. Jacoby cannot move or cry out and suffers a heart attack.
Audrey, dressed in lingerie by a hunchbacked seamstress, visits Blackie's office. Blackie says the owner will visit that night, and asks her to pick a card spread across the table. Audrey picks the Queen of Diamonds card and Blackie puts her hand over Audrey's hand.
Cooper talks to Jacques about his business with Leo and instructs Jacques to meet him at the water processing plant in two hours. Jacques then tells how the bit of the poker chip got into Laura's stomach: Leo had made her bite down on it when the bird was attacking her, telling her: "Bite the bullet, baby! Bite the bullet!"
Audrey waits alone in a room.
Shelly washes her hair in the sink with the gun next to her. Leo sneaks up behind her and grabs her mouth.
On their stake-out, Andy tells Harry that Lucy still has not talked to him. Jacques pulls into the plant and is surrounded by cops. Jacques steals Deputy Fred's gun and attempts to escape but Andy shoots him in the shoulder.
James, Donna, and Maddy listen to the tape from Jacoby's coconut. Laura insults James and talks about how Leo is trying to kill her, but that gets her off. Doctor Hayward leaves and tells Donna to check on her mother. James and Donna embrace and James tells Madeleine that Jacoby was trying to help Laura, and Donna asks how he got the necklace.
At the lumbermill, Leo unloads his gas after tying Shelly up inside. He winds up a bomb and tells Shelly she has one hour to think about her behavior, and that he will kill Bobby.
Nadine wears a beautiful silk dress and puts a note on a tray before pouring a lot of pills into a bowl.
Hank counts money into a suitcase. He thanks Josie for the $90k, and tells her it seems light. Hank talks about how his time is now worth more than $90k. Josie insists that they had an agreement. Hank surprises her with a blood handshake.
At the stationhouse, the officers tell stories about the arrest. Lucy is impressed, and Andy kisses her before she confesses that she is pregnant. Andy walks away in silence. Lucy answers the phone: Bobby, impersonating Leo, tells her to tell Harry to check out James.
At the hospital, Cooper and Harry interrogate Jacques. He says that Leo had hit him with a whiskey bottle, and he had passed out. When he came to, Leo and the girls were gone.
Doctor Hayward says that Doctor Jacoby is stable.
Cooper says that Leo must have taken both of the girls to the train car himself and Hayward reports that Jacoby saw Laura Palmer at the park.
Catherine and Pete look through the shelves, but cannot find the book. Over the phone, Hank anonymously tells Catherine that the book is in the shed. Catherine gets ready to meet him, and packs a gun.
Hank talks to Norma about his time in the joint, trying to charm her. He reminds her that they have been together 20 years.
Big Ed returns home and finds Nadine on the living room floor and he phones an ambulance.
Lucy gives Harry the message from "Leo." She says she heard a clock striking in the background, like the clock at the park and Cooper instructs Hawk to set up a perimeter around Easter park. James approaches Harry and Cooper asks to talk to James instead. Leland enters and asks Harry if he has found the killer. Hayward tells Leland to go home to Sarah. James gives Cooper a copy of the tape and Cooper asks James about Jacoby seeing Laura. Cooper shows James the ziplock bag of cocaine and asks why it was in his bike.
The Icelandic investor Einar Thorson prepares to sign Ben's contract in Blackie's office. Hank calls Ben to tell him that Leo Johnson will get a house call, and to black flag the firebug.
Bobby enters the Johnson house. Leo goes after Bobby with an ax. Just as he is about to strike the final blow, Hank shoots him. Bobby leaves, as Jared and Chet embrace each other on Invitation to Love while Montana dies.
Shelly struggles in her bonds and Catherine approaches her with a gun. The bomb explodes, and a fire spreads. Catherine releases Shelly, and they run out.
A fire alarm goes off in the hospital and Leland tapes Jacques to his bed and smothers him to death with a pillow.
Pete asks Decker if anyone is in the mill and says he will check inside for Catherine.
Ben enters Audrey's room, where she is dressed as the Queen of Diamonds and is shocked to see her father.
Cooper walks down the hallway to his room while making a recording for Diane, noting that the Icelanders were gone. He phones the hotel staff for a glass of milk and finds Audrey's note on the floor. Cooper answers the door and is shot three times.
In a deleted scene entitled "Jerry's Wandering Eye," Jerry sits with Heba, who accuses him of infidelity. A girl at the brothel who passes by catches his eye.
