Lynch directed Episode 7 of Season 2. He then left the show creatively to work on Wild at Heart and because he disagreed with revealing who Laura's killer was at that point, he was still physically local and was willing to make a few guest appearances as an actor to play Gordon Cole. BUT, he had nothing to do with Episodes 12-20 as a writer or director. He came back to direct the final episode. Mark Frost did co-write Episode 19 though, the best of the bad episodes.I'm glad to hear that it wasn't just me because despite loving and having watched the first season several times over the years, I would always quit early on in season 2.
I do have to ask though, how could Lynch direct one of those episodes and play a character in a few of them as well, but not be involved?
