He counters by telling her that he has known about the affair she is having with their lawyer George, “and maybe somebody else.” She scoffs at him telling him he will now spend the rest of his life in prison. A woodsman who materializes in an adjoining cell eavesdrops on the conversation then dematerializes. When Phyllis goes home evil Cooper is waiting for her standing in the shadows of her home. She apparently knows him because she greets him as a friend. He tells her “you did good.

Do you recognize me?” Cooper asks her if she is Laura Palmer and she says, “I feel like I know her but sometimes my arms bend back.” Again, Cooper asks, “who are you?” She answers I am…Laura Palmer.” Stating the obvious Cooper says, “but Laura Palmer is dead.” She looks at him and says, “I am dead…yet I live.”  She then removes her face to reveal the brilliant white light inside of her.
