Harriet is shown to be a poet. She appears twice in the series, and both times feature her reading poetry she has written. In the show's pilot, Donna asks Harriet to lie to their father while she sneaks out the bedroom window to meet James Hurley to discuss the death of Laura Palmer. Harriet, who is busy writing a poem, fails to adequately cover for her sister, however.
Harriet's other appearance—the first episode of the second season, "May the Giant Be With You"—features her reading a rather eerie poem she wrote about Laura. Gersten , played by Alicia Witt , is the youngest of three Hayward sisters. Unlike her sisters and her mother, Gersten is a redhead. She is a skilled pianist. While she is a minor character, the episode "May the Giant Be With You" ends with the credits rolling over footage of Gersten playing the piano.
Ben Horne Richard Beymer is one of the two richest and most powerful people of Twin Peaks; according to Sheriff Truman, Horne "owns half the town", including The Great Northern Hotel , the town's only apparent travel lodgings; the Great Northern also acts, on occasion, as a de facto town hall, and the only place in Twin Peaks suitable for a wedding reception, making it one of the hubs of the community.
He is a highly devious figure involved in drug and prostitution rings and even orders and orchestrates murders. His would-be monopoly on the town's economy is challenged only by Josie Packard, the owner of the Packard Saw Mill, one of the few major businesses in town which Horne doesn't own.
At the outset of the series, Horne has been involved in an affair for some time with Catherine Martell , as part of an intricate plot to kill her, destroy the mill, become the beneficiary of her life insurance, and take sole ownership of the land on which the mill sits, which he intends to turn into a luxury country club.
There is also speculation about Horne's previous involvement with Eileen Hayward, which leads to the suspicion as to whether he is Donna Hayward's biological father. During the second season, he is briefly arrested on the suspicion of being Laura Palmer's murderer. Due to the collapse of his business endeavours during his arrest, he suffers a nervous breakdown, falling into a delusional state for much of the season, during which he imagines himself a Civil War general.
When he recovers from his mental breakdown, he attempts somewhat to right some of his prior wrongs, but does not completely keep himself out of trouble. In the finale of the original series, Ben is attacked by Will Hayward and suffers a head injury after it is implied that he is the biological father of Hayward's daughter Donna.
In the revival, Ben is revealed to have survived, and as of he remains the owner of the Great Northern.
He is his brother's right-hand man and emissary, traveling around the world to act on Ben's behalf in his business dealings. Though not as intelligent as his brother, Jerry demonstrates world-awareness beyond that of most of the town's population. He is a lawyer, but not as capable as Leland Palmer, and he rarely practices. He and Ben share similar interests and characteristics — womanizing and cutthroat business dealings — but Jerry publicly displays all the negative traits his brother hides beneath a veneer of sophistication and class.
The brothers' contrasts are reflected in their attire: Ben wears tailored, neutral-colored business suits, and Jerry dresses in a variety of bizarre, multicolored outfits, seemingly culled from his trips around the world, with a strange hairdo resembling a hi-top fade.
Despite their focus on getting their own way, the Horne brothers show a genuine affection for each other. Jerry ultimately leaves his profession as an attorney and, by , starts producing cannabis products for sale. He also becomes increasingly disheveled and appears to have developed an addiction to cannabis. This addiction results in him getting lost in the woods and having hallucinations.
Audrey Horne Sherilyn Fenn fits the image of a poor little rich girl, able to have anything she wants except for her father's love.
She eventually discovers that her father, Benjamin, the town's business magnate, gave his love to the deceased Laura Palmer, both physically and emotionally. Audrey is labelled a troublemaker and she initially lives up to that expectation.
In the pilot, she derails one of her father's business deals, worth millions of dollars, by interrupting a meeting of Norwegian investors and telling them about Laura's murder.
However, Audrey ultimately reveals herself to be a shrewd and sympathetic figure who goes out of her way for others. Charlie Clark Middleton is Audrey's husband. Audrey has admitted to him she is having an affair with Billy, who has gone missing.
He first appears in Part 12 of the Return. Audrey's older, intellectually disabled brother Johnny is a peripheral character in the series. He is played by Robert Davenport in the pilot episode, later by Robert Bauer—twice in the first season and once in the second season, as well as in the film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and finally by Eric Rondell in part nine of the third season.
Jacoby that as a girl, Audrey pushed her brother Johnny down a flight of stairs—resulting in his brain damage. Jacoby reminds Sylvia that there is no physical trauma in Johnny's brain; he remains in a childlike state because he wants to.
A violent and unstable young man with ties to drug dealing, Richard kills a boy in a hit-and-run accident and attempts to cover it up.
He nearly murders Miriam Sullivan, a witness to the accident, and steals his grandmother's money after assaulting her. Upon arriving there, Richard is killed by an electrical force. After Andrew's death in a boating accident, Josie inherits the mill, which is run by her sister-in-law Catherine.
Catherine resents Josie for taking over the mill and suspects that Josie was responsible for Andrew's demise. Catherine's husband Pete Martell , a former woodcutter, is good friends with Josie, seeing her fragile side and striving to protect her.
Through most of the first season, Josie seems innocent, an easy mark and potential victim for her more savvy and cunning sister-in-law and Catherine's lover, Ben Horne. It is only later revealed that Josie is, in truth, a classic " femme fatale " whose innocence masks a manipulative and cold-blooded side. After her husband's death, Josie starts dating the town sheriff Harry S. Agent Dale Cooper, in town investigating the murder of Laura Palmer, has befriended Truman, and quickly detects Truman's feelings for Josie, but does not himself trust her at all.
He tries to warn Truman against getting too close to Josie, but to no avail. At the end of the first season, a mysterious caller shoots Cooper. He survives, thanks to a quick operation, but does not get a look at his assailant, who is later revealed to have been Josie. She reveals that she shot him out of fear that he would discover her role in Andrew's death and her other criminal wrongdoings. These fears ultimately turned out to be accurate. She ultimately dies of heart failure from "fear" after an encounter with evil spirit BOB after having shot and killed Thomas Eckhardt, a long-time tormentor of hers due to his obsession with her.
Andrew Packard Dan O'Herlihy , a sprightly and high-spirited man in spite of his old age, was formerly the owner of the Packard Sawmill. He was supposedly killed in a boating accident brought about by Hank Jennings, working on behalf of Andrew's wife, Josie , and his former business partner, Thomas Eckhardt, a sinister businessman operating in the Far East.
Later it is revealed that Andrew anticipated the attempt and went into hiding. Andrew and his sister Catherine Martell have a mutual distrust, but are also mutually beneficent. Catherine seems to resent the fact that Pete , her husband, gets on very well with Andrew. Before he is killed, Eckhardt leaves a mysterious puzzle to Andrew and Catherine.
It is a box, with an astrological code on it, which in Russian doll fashion contains several other boxes within it. Andrew and Pete finally discover a key to a safety deposit for the local bank after Andrew shoots the smallest one with the large revolver he carries beneath his jacket. When Andrew and Pete go to the bank and open the deposit, a bomb is triggered. The extent of the damage is unclear, as this happened in the final episode, but Andrew, Pete, and the bank clerk likely all died in the explosion Audrey, chained to the bank vault door, was slated to have survived.
She married lumberjack Pete Martell, but their happiness was short-lived. Though they remained married, Catherine holds her more simple and naive husband in contempt.
After Andrew's death in a boating accident actually brought about by his young Chinese wife Josie and Hank Jennings , Catherine runs the Packard Mill, though Josie is the legal owner. Catherine is having an affair with local businessman and landowner Ben Horne, with whom she is plotting to burn down the mill. Unknown to Catherine, Ben is also in cahoots with Josie, and the two of them are plotting to cut her out of the picture entirely, with the intent to eventually shut down the mill and develop the land for their own profit.
A highly devious and narcissistic person, Catherine later cons everyone by posing as a Japanese businessman Mr Tojamura who buys the shares of the land and manages to destroy Horne's business. Pete Martell played by Jack Nance is a lumberjack who married his boss's sister Catherine. Pete is the one who discovers Laura Palmer's dead body in the opening scenes of the series.
What started as a "summer's indiscretion" developed into a marriage that from Pete's perspective never should have happened.
While Pete is quiet and docile, Catherine is ruthless, stubborn and determined and doesn't make anything easy for her husband who she feels is a useless, soft old fool. However, it is also made clear that Catherine was far richer than he, so he has at least a financial consolation. Pete also seems to harbor some genuine, nostalgic affection for his wife, which he expresses to Sheriff Truman when he thinks Catherine has died, and after she reappears she shows genuine affection towards him, hinting at least towards a deep platonic bond between the two.
He is a keen angler. While Catherine plots to get back her late brother's business, the Packard mill, from his widow Josie Packard whom she despises, Pete spends his time fishing and joking affectionately with Josie. Perhaps too good to be true, Josie is pure balm to Pete after Catherine's constant spite and contempt.
He is also an expert chess player, the best in town and seemingly in a very large surrounding area , and helps Cooper in his deadly tournament against Windom Earle in season 2. In the series finale Pete, Andrew Packard and Audrey Horne are caught up in a bomb blast at the Twin Peaks national bank and their fates are not revealed. Major Garland Briggs Don S. He is the father of Bobby, whose wild antics and disrespectful attitude are a cause of great friction between them.
His work with the government is highly classified, hidden even from his family. In the second season, Major Briggs and Bobby find some common ground and begin to connect. In between the events of the original series and the revival, Major Briggs creates a dossier that is depicted in the novel The Secret History of Twin Peaks. During the revival, Bobby states that he died in a station fire, while the Air Force learns that his fingerprints have been appearing at crime scenes. Briggs himself appears before Cooper as a floating head.
Briggs lives on as a floating head in the realm of The Fireman. His father is Major Garland Briggs, a member of the U. Though Bobby was secretly seeing Shelly Johnson before Laura's death, he becomes jealous of James Hurley when he discovers that James was secretly seeing Laura. As it turns out, Laura did not really love Bobby but was merely using him as a source of cocaine. The prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me shows that just two days before Laura's death, Bobby accompanied by Laura had a midnight meeting, arranged by Jacques Renault, with Cliff Howard, deputy in Deer Meadow, the town in which Teresa Banks was murdered the previous year.
Howard was supplying Bobby with cocaine to be sold in Twin Peaks; when an inebriated Laura yanked the drugs out of his hands, Howard pulled a gun and Bobby shot him. This scene explains what James Hurley reported to Donna Hayward in the series pilot — that Laura, the night she was murdered, had mentioned to him that someone had been killed. In the first episode, Bobby is a suspect in Laura's death, but Cooper determines he is innocent and has him released.
He and Shelly eventually move in together when Leo Johnson becomes comatose. He tries to become an assistant to Ben Horne but falls in with Horne at the point of Horne's nervous breakdown and finds little success.
Bobby later becomes a deputy in the Twin Peaks sheriff's department, a position he assumes by He is the father of Shelly Johnson's daughter, Becky. He also looks after his nephew James Hurley. His marriage to Nadine, who is constantly seesawing between being overbearing and highly depressed, ceased to be loving long ago, and seems driven primarily by his guilt over the hunting accident on their honeymoon where she lost her eye.
Due to a misunderstanding he married her over his high-school sweetheart Norma Jennings. He has been carrying on an affair with Norma, but his guilt, along with the imminent release of Norma's violent husband Hank, causes them to break things off.
They resume their affair after Nadine regresses into her teen years and starts dating Mike, a teenager. Nadine even hospitalizes Hank while defending Ed from him. Ed and Norma announce their intention to be married, but Nadine's sudden recovery throws things into doubt. Ed is also one of the Bookhouse Boys and as such serves as "unofficial deputy" to Sheriff Truman. Nadine Hurley , played by Wendy Robie , is married to Big Ed and is well known in the town for her ferocity and eccentricity.
Nadine wears a patch over her left eye, having lost it in a hunting accident on their honeymoon. Ed's guilt over the accident and other things is perhaps all that holds together their mostly unhappy marriage, as he would rather have married Norma Jennings, his high-school sweetheart.
Nadine spends the first few episodes of the series in a state of obsession with trying to create the world's first completely silent drape-runners. She is successful when her husband, Ed, accidentally spills mechanical grease on the cotton balls she is fixing to the runners. Nadine initially thinks this will make them both very rich, but alas it does not, because she was refused a patent, and she gives up hope that it could ever sell.
She subsequently attempts suicide by overdosing on pills. After falling into a coma instead, Nadine awakes believing herself to be a teenager in high school and, incidentally, just dating her husband. Her superhuman strength already present in season one allows her to enter the school's wrestling team—the first female to do so.
Though the cause of her memory loss is left largely to the viewer's imagination, adrenaline is circuitously mentioned at one point by Dr. As season two progresses, Nadine and Ed decide to "break up", and she begins pursuit of teenage Mike Nelson captain of the Twin Peaks wrestling team. This in turn leaves Ed free to pursue his true love, Norma. In the final episode of the original series, Nadine suffers a blow to the head that results in the loss of her delusions of teenhood.
Apparently, she has no memory of anything that has occurred since her suicide attempt. Amp" web series and has turned her silent drape-runners into a business.
James Hurley , played by James Marshall , lives with his uncle Ed and his aunt Nadine due to his troubled family situation: James is a keen motorcycle rider. He is only quiet on the outside. James frequently has problems with women. He was Laura Palmer's secret boyfriend.
Bobby Briggs, Laura's boyfriend, resents James because of their relationship. After her death, he falls in love with his and Laura's best friend Donna Hayward. Later he is also attracted to Laura's look-alike cousin Maddy Ferguson , leading to disputes with Donna, who is similarly confused about her feelings for him.
After Maddy's death, he leaves Twin Peaks and gets into trouble with Evelyn Marsh, who manipulates him for her own ends at first but then regrets it. After he is entangled in the conspiracy to murder her husband and exonerated, he decides he needs to get away from Twin Peaks and heads off to see the world.
He is not seen again for the remainder of the series, but he professes his love for Donna and promises to come back for her. By , James has returned to Twin Peaks, and is revealed to have suffered a head injury in an accident.
He visits the Roadhouse, where he is seen staring at Shelly's friend Renee. Norma Jennings , played by Peggy Lipton , is the owner of the Double R Diner , where she employs Shelly Johnson , a good friend of hers, and organizes the town's Meals on Wheels program, which Laura Palmer used to operate.
She is a former Miss Twin Peaks, and becomes one of the judges at the latest pageant. She is later joined at the Diner by her sister Annie Blackburn, a former nun. She does not care for her husband Hank, a paroled criminal, and has long regretted that she did not end up with high-school sweetheart Big Ed Hurley, whom she adores and is carrying on an affair with. She finds it difficult to trust Hank, because he is a criminal and has let her down in the past, but eventually gives him a chance by letting him work in the diner.
What she would really like to do is to divorce Hank and marry Ed, but events continually prevent this. When Nadine regresses into her teenage years Ed and Norma see an opportunity to get married, but Nadine's sudden recovery throws things into jeopardy. Norma has a bad relationship with her mother, which has presumably been a long-standing dislike, as Annie Blackburn briefly inquires about this upon coming to Twin Peaks, and doesn't argue when Norma tries to drop the subject.
Their ties are broken for good when it turns out her mother is in fact a famous food critic who writes under a pseudonym, and ultimately gives the Double R Diner an unflattering review.
Norma, who is appalled at her mother's lack of sympathy for what Norma has dedicated her life to, tells her she never wants to see her again. Hank Jennings , played by Chris Mulkey , is the criminal and during the first few episodes imprisoned husband of Norma Jennings.
He is a career criminal, albeit a more professional one than Leo Johnson. Bad to the bone and somewhat of a sociopath , he is nevertheless able to put on a convincing nice-guy facade which manages to fool some people.
According to Sheriff Harry S. Truman , Hank once was a member of the Bookhouse Boys, in fact "one of the best", before he was expelled for his criminal activities.
In many ways, Hank serves as a moral counterpoint to Sheriff Truman who rightfully does not trust Hank. Prior to the start of the series, Hank has been hired by Josie Packard to arrange the death of her husband Andrew , owner of the Packard Saw Mill, in a boating accident. It is revealed later that Andrew anticipated and secretly avoided this attempt on his life. Hank used his apparent involvement in a drunken driving accident as an alibi for the night of Andrew's death and was convicted of manslaughter.
At the beginning of the series, he is due for parole after serving 18 months in the state prison. Hank has a difficult relationship with his wife Norma, who rightly feels lied to and betrayed by him. Norma is really in love with Big Ed Hurley, as she has been since high school, and the two only married other people due to misunderstandings.
Hank's imprisonment provides the couple safety to carry on an affair, and hence they are uneasy about his being free and nearby. Nonetheless, Norma gives a restrained but positive testimony in the parole hearing, ensuring his release, and provides him with a job at her Double R Diner. Upon his release, Hank immediately violates parole by committing a large number of crimes and by crossing the Canada—US border.
Hank is hired for a number of shady dealings by Benjamin Horne. The shot does not kill Leo, but sends him into a coma. Unbeknownst to him, this was witnessed by Bobby Briggs, whom Leo had been about to kill with an axe at the time.
Hank decides to punish Ed for the affair with Norma but runs into Ed's superhumanly strong wife Nadine, who beats him to a pulp. Hank spends the remainder of the series on crutches and is eventually taken back to jail for parole violations.
In his last appearance, Hank tries to get an alibi regarding the night of Leo's shooting from his wife, Norma, while she is visiting his cell to ask for a divorce. When Norma refuses still not trusting Hank to keep his word , he then reacts violently and calls her Big Ed's " whore ", to which she replies: The Secret History of Twin Peaks reveals that three years after his arrest, Hank was stabbed to death in prison by a distant cousin of the Renault family. Before his death Hank gave a deathbed confession to his various crimes and wrote a quick note to his family and former friends apologizing for everything he had done.
She appears in the final six episodes of the series and briefly in the prequel feature film Twin Peaks: A precocious introvert closer to nature than to people, she grew up in Twin Peaks, but after a painful first love that led her to a suicide attempt, she went to live in a convent. She hasn't decided if she wants to remain in the secular world, but is willing to see what it can offer her. Despite her lack of experience outside the convent, Annie is not naive about everyday sorrows and transgressions.
Annie seems to possess an intangible quality to which Cooper is drawn, almost hypnotically. Annie ultimately begins to represent a dark and painful truth from his past.
In the final episode of the series she is trapped in the Black Lodge by Windom Earle who brings her there as his "Queen" after she wins Miss Twin Peaks Earle was playing a "sick chess game" involving real people prior to this.
At the end of the episode, Dale Cooper is replaced with a doppelganger possessed by the spirit of Bob , and he and Annie depart the Black Lodge. Annie is reported to have been hospitalized by the end of the series. Fire Walk with Me , Annie briefly appears to Laura Palmer in a dream, bruised and bloodied appearing the same way she did when she exited the Black Lodge , to warn her of her death, but as this has yet to happen Laura does not understand the omen. The clue that Annie says to Laura is: The good Dale is in the Lodge, and he can't leave.
Write it in your diary. The diary entry containing Annie's message, along with two other pages, is later hidden in a stall door in the Twin Peaks sheriff's department. Shelly dropped out of high school to marry trucker Leo Johnson , who had swept her off her feet by lavishing her with attention. As soon as they got married, it became clear that Leo just "wanted a maid he didn't have to pay for," in the words of Shelly.
Leo is a sadistic, monstrous home dictator, wife-beater, rapist and dangerous criminal, and he is tangibly connected to Laura Palmer 's murder.
Shelly has been having an affair with Laura's boyfriend, Bobby Briggs. Bobby, like Laura, is still in high school, and besides being a jock, he's something of a known hooligan. Although Bobby doesn't quite tread on the right side of the law, he is at least kind to Shelly, unlike Leo.
The risk of the affair is great; Bobby deals drugs for Leo and knows just how dangerous Leo is. Leo eventually finds out, and sexually assaults, then tries to kill Shelly by tying her up inside the Packard Saw Mill and setting it on fire. However Catherine Martell , who was also meant to die in the fire, reluctantly frees Shelly and helps her escape.
