Mini Ep 8–The Owls Are Not What They Seem: The Mysterious Maybe-Murder of Jack Nance

In this minisode, we celebrate the upcoming May 2017 revival of David Lynch's TV series, Twin Peaks, by of course exploring a murder - the mysterious circumstances of Jack Nance's death. Nance, who played Henry Spencer in  the supremely weird and wonderful film Eraserhead, as well as Pete Martell in Twin Peaks, appeared in almost all of Lynch's work up until his strange death in 1996. Like much of Lynch's fiction and the show Twin Peaks itself, this minisode dedicated to the real life and death of Nance will leave you wondering what is real.  Was Nance murdered, or was it simply a tall tale and tragic accident?
