Ok, I missed a day somehow, I don’t know why, so we shall go backwards in the #atozchallenge, to the letter O, where my B to Z of Twin Peaks takes a quick look at the only two “O”s I can think of from the series.
One Eyed Jack’s is a brothel and casino owned by Ben Horne, located a short boat ride away, just over the Canadian border.
Ben also owns the Great Northern Hotel in Twin Peaks and whenever he wants to entertain investors or business associates, he and his brother, Jerry Horne, take a trip across the water to sample the delights “Jack’s” has to offer.
A major part of the main plot concerns the illicit cross border drug trade which centres around One Eyed Jack’s and many strands of the story converge here, so it definitely deserves a place in this list, despite not being an actual character.
The One Armed Man aka “Mike”, aka Philip Gerard is, depending on who you believe, a mild mannered shoe salesman or a supernatural killer’s reformed familiar/nemesis.
He appears in Cooper’s dream, warning about the danger of “Bob” and claiming to be trying to stop him from killing again.
And he sells shoes.
