#atozchallenge: S is for Shelley…

22 Apr

For my “S” post in the #atozchallenge, I’m inducting another regular character into my B to Z of Twin Peaks, one who seems to be universally liked by fans, possibly because of her damsel in distress storyline.

Shelley Johnson is a waitress at the Double R Diner (purveyors of Twin Peaks’ justly famous damn fine coffee and cherry pie) and is unhappily married to everyone’s favourite rent-a-thug, Leo.

Having said that, the first time we see Shelley, she appears to be involved with Bobby Briggs, Laura’s boyfriend, a dangerous game to be playing, considering Leo’s fiery temper.

Shelley dropped out of high school to marry Leo; a bad move as it turns out, since, according to her, all he wanted was “a maid he didn’t have to pay” and she is regularly a victim of domestic abuse.

Not surprising then, that she chooses to hook up with Bobby behind Leo’s back, leading to a series of events that intersect with several strands of the larger story, via Leo’s involvement with the drug trade and Ben Horne.

Here is a very cute scene, with David Lynch’s character, Gordon Cole chatting up Shelley in the Double R, (the chemistry between Lynch and Madchen Amick is obvious) much to the displeasure of Bobby.

And here are a couple of my Woolhouse Boys pictures, an official Showtime TV promo…

…and one I did at the request of founder Woolhouse Boy, Joel Peacock (with the promise of a yet-to-appear reward…) of Madchen in a rather fetching woolkini;
