"Case files."―Dale Cooper
Gene and Jake sit in a car, the former on the phone with Lorraine, reporting on the situation with Dougie Jones. Frustrated, she sends the message "2" (leaving 159 characters to type) to her contact "ARGENT" which rings a device twice.
Constance Talbot, Detective Macklay, and Detective Harrison observe the John Doe in the morgue. Talbot confirms the decapitation as the man's cause of death and presents a ring found inside the body. On it is an inscription that reads, "To Dougie, with love, Janey-E."
Janey-E, Sonny Jim and Cooper leave the Jones home and Janey-E tells Cooper that he had won $425,000. He looks at Sonny Jim and begins to shed tears. On realization that Dougie's car is not there, Janey-E begrudgingly takes Cooper to Dougie's work.
Gene and Jake check on Dougie's car again, which still has not moved. A group of delinquent youths also drive by the car.
Janey-E drops Cooper off at work and he wanders, following the aim of a statue of a man carrying a revolver. He stands around until Dougie's co-worker, Phil Bisby comes carrying coffee on his way to a board meeting. Following him into the elevator, Cooper takes one of the coffees and begins drinking the "damn good Joe." It was Frank's one who then takes a green tea latte instead while Darren is turned down by Rhonda and Bonnici next to Frank is served the eighth cup carried by Phil.
Anthony Sinclair tells Cooper that he has covered for Dougie's absence and during the meeting, as Sinclair presents a report. When saying that there was no arson with Littlefield, Cooper blurts out "He's lying," but does not elaborate, causing the boss Bushnell Mullins to have "Dougie" meet with him after the meeting. Mullins questions his accusation and gives him case files to assess by the next day.
Rodney and Bradley Mitchum come to the Silver Mustang Casino and in front of Candie, Mandie and Sandie punish Burns for Cooper's win at the casino and replace Burns with Warrick, who they tell to inform them if Cooper ever returns to the casino.
While his mother is passed out on drugs, the little boy living in the home across from Dougie's car goes to examine it. He is shooed away by the gang of youths, arriving in a loud black 1970 Dodge Charger, who try to steal the car. The bomb under Dougie's car explodes, killing several members of the gang, and the boy runs back to his home. Hearing him coming back in, his mother slowly wakes up and stares at the door.
Norma sorts through documents as Heidi is serving and Becky delivers bread to Toad and gets money from Shelly. Norma goes to Shelly, urging her to help Becky rather than continue to enable her. Becky takes the money to Steven and they snort a drug.
Cooper is pushed out of the elevator at the end of the workday and he goes to the statue he saw that morning.
Jacoby starts up his webcast he hosts as "Dr. Amp" and it is viewed by Jerry Horne—who smokes a joint—and Nadine Hurley. His broadcast ends with an advertisement for his golden shovels that he urges his viewers to buy to shovel themselves "out of the shit and into the truth."
At the Pentagon, Lieutenant Cynthia Knox informs Colonel Davis that they have received a match on Major Garland Briggs' fingerprints—the sixteenth match in 25 years—in Buckhorn, South Dakota. Davis doubts the legitimacy of the match but says that if it is indeed truly Briggs that has been identified, that the FBI must be informed.
The band Trouble plays at the Roadhouse as Richard Horne smokes underneath a 'no smoking' sign. Employee Federico asks him to quit and the off-duty Deputy Chad Broxford takes over but ends up taking a bribe from Horne. Charlotte, from the next table over with Elizabeth, asks him for a light, but he grabs her and threatens to assault her.
Agent Preston examines Cooper's file and compares his fingerprints from before his 1989 disappearance and from the doppelganger's booking at the federal prison.
Warden Murphy gives the doppelganger his phone call. However, the doppelganger dials a number that sets off the prison's alarms and he says "The cow jumped over the moon," before hanging up, stopping the alarms.
In Buenos Aires, the device contacted before by Lorraine beeps and implodes.
Cooper continues to observe the statue.

- Upon release, Twin Peaks: The Return earned some criticism for earning the "Empty Cup Award," a satirical achievement for televisions where actors handle coffee cups that are claimed to be full in the dialogue but are very clearly empty based on how they are handled by the performers. In the case of this episode, however, Kyle MacLachlan was given some praise for being the sole actor to handle his cup as though it were actually full, especially in an episode where a character (Phil Bisby) unrealistically balances two full trays of coffee while running around.
Behind the scenes Edit
The statue in front of Dougie's workplace was not originally part of location and was brought by the production staff. It might be a statue of Donald Lynch, father of David Lynch, since according to the stand-in Tyler Malkin, Lynch talked to it saying "Hi, Dad".
The numbers input by the doopelganger during is phone call are, using the standard DTMF tones pitched up 2 octaves for offscreen ones:
16 (pause) 1235789 (computer modem response) 3135378912315 (01189998819991197253 offscreen)
This could be interpreted as two numbers dialing to get an outside line from the internal prison phone system, then a 7 digit local number calling a computer set up beforehand with a local number so it would be a free local call and finally a code that triggers a pre-planned, automated hack of the prison systems.
