and despite some other content appearing in parts of twin peaks or other lynch, i feel like the criminal scenes are being written by someone who doesn't really know how criminals are depicted, in fact i feel pretty sure the writers asked a first grader to describe what the criminal's lair would be like. "you get there and all the criminal guys are just hanging around in a big empty warehouse with a big empty garage and there's one really big tough bald guy and he's the boss. and he's really super good at arm wrestling. so all the criminal guys want to beat him but when they try they always lose, and when they lose, they gotta work for the boss, cuz that's the rules of the game. but if anybody ever beats him, they get to be the boss. so then when cooperganger comes in to find ray he's gotta arm wrestle the boss because ray works for the boss. and richard is there hanging out too because all the criminal guys in the country hang out at the same criminal guy lair. they just hang out all day watching giant televisions and having fun like in teenage mutant ninja turtles ii: the secret of the ooze. and cooperganger has magic super strength so he is so much stronger than the boss that he can just play around with him until he feels like winning. and then after cooperganger wins he punches the boss in the head and the boss's head explodes in a mess of blood and stuff. and so cooperganger's the new boss and all the criminal guys do whatever he says."
"so....the boss doesn't need to know anything about the ongoing criminal operations? like who the primary contacts are and what deals are in the works or have been set up for the future? he just gets to hang out and be bossy?"
