Biography[edit | edit source]
Marriage to Dougie Milford[edit | edit source]
The next morning, she ran from her room at the hotel, screaming, as her husband had died in bed of an apparent heart attack.
Deputy Hawk comforted her as she mourned her husband. Mayor Milford chided her, calling her a "sexual adventuress" and that she would "burn in hell" for Dougie's death. After Dwayne was escorted out, she claimed to have been cursed since her prom night, when her date - who had braces - had his jaw lock up on him after they kissed and had to have it broken in three places for it to be corrected. Deputy Hawk told her that her curse needed a cure.
Doctor Lawrence Jacoby later found that Lana was not cursed, but possessed a heightened sexual drive. As they left to go bowling, they were confronted by Dwayne, who was armed with a shotgun. Cooper had she and Dwayne settle matters privately in the conference room. Meanwhile, the rest of the men stood outside until they came in to find her kissing Dwayne, who then announced that they would be adopting a child.
Miss Twin Peaks Contest[edit | edit source]
Later, she served the wine at Dick's wine-tasting event.
The morning before the pageant, Tim Pinkle taught her and the rest of the women in the Miss Twin Peaks Contest some choreography. During a break, she approached Dick and asked him to help her "find something in the storage room."
At the contest, she performed a dance of "contortionistic jazz exotica."
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
Six months after Dougie's death, Lana left Twin Peaks after receiving an insurance payout. She resurfaced in the Hamptons and briefly dated a Fifth Avenue-based real estate mogul. In the mid-1990s, Lana encountered Donna Hayward at a public function; a photograph of the two was featured in the Twin Peaks Post.
Eventually, Lana married a hedge fund manager. She was last known to reside in Antigua, where her new husband dropped dead during a morning jog, and she predictably made off with the cash. Tammy Preston was unable to find any trace of Lana after this event, noting she was said to have drifted toward the south of France.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
During his Secret History of Twin Peaks' book tour, Mark Frost said at each convention that Lana was Miss Twin Peaks 1989 despite the fact that Annie was the clear winner in Episode 28. This is later explained in The Final Dossier as Lana having won as the runner-up after Annie's disappearance.
