#atozchallenge: P is for Palmer…

18 Apr

Today the #atozchallenge reaches the letter P in my B to Z of Twin Peaks and focuses on arguably the two most central characters.

The Palmer family is the very heart of the story, around which all other stories revolve.

Laura Palmer is, as far as most of the town is aware, the archetypal high school homecoming queen, a bright young woman with her whole life ahead of her; she’s dating Bobby Briggs, the captain of the football team, acting as special needs tutor to Johnny Horne and helping distribute meals on wheels to the elderly.

But beneath the surface of her wholesome public persona, there is another Laura, one who is haunted by horrific visions and memories of abuse at the hands of a man she calls only “Bob”.
Unknown to her family and all but her closest friends, Laura lives a secret double life, filled with darkness and pain, promiscuity and drugs, a life which finally drags her into a spiral of depravity from which there can be no escape.

Leland Palmer is a well liked and respected lawyer, who works for hotel owner and local tycoon, Benjamin Horne. His behaviour becomes increasingly erratic as the grief at losing his daughter in such a brutal fashion threatens to overwhelm him and we follow his descent into mental breakdown, as more and more revelations about Laura’s secret life come to light.
