This article contains plot spoilers for the 2017 series of Twin Peaks.
On one evening at the Roadhouse, Richard smoked underneath a 'no smoking' sign. He was asked to stop by an employee, but off-duty Deputy Chad Broxford told him he would handle it. Horne covertly passed Broxford a wad of cash inside his empty cigarette pack. A girl from the next table, Charlotte, asked him for a light. Richard had her join him in his booth and he aggressively grabbed her, making threats to rape her.
Richard later met with gangsters led by Red, who planned on using Twin Peaks as a spot for running "sparkle" down from Canada. He sampled the product and promised that it would be easy to traffic into town. Red pulled out a dime and flipped it, it hung in the air spinning far longer than it should have, then suddenly appeared in Richard's mouth, then back in Red's hand.
Later, Richard drove away from the encounter, fuming at having been called "kid" repeatedly by Red. In his anger he illegally sped into the oncoming lane and ran a stop sign, killing a young boy. He then went to a field belonging to a local farmer and wiped the boy's blood off of his truck's grill.
Richard later went to Miriam Sullivan's trailer after she witnessed him kill the boy. She told him that she had sent an incriminating letter to Sheriff Truman and he broke inside, savagely beating her. He then called Chad, telling him to intercept the letter.
