This chapter examines how the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me fits within David Lynch's wider filmography. It analyses connections and commonalities between Fire Walk With Me and Lynch's other films, highlighting recurring themes and stylistic elements. It also mentions Lynch's film Wild At Heart from 1990, which was made during Twin Peak's second season that had won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. The chapter recounts Lynch's initial flirtation with the mainstream, such as a big budget adaption of Frank Herbert's science-fiction novel titled Dune in 1984 that had been a commercial, critical and artistic disaster. It talks about how Fire Walk With Me had been a product of Lynch's own making that expresses his own particular vision and continued to believe in, despite the critical drubbing.
