An emotionally intense and cathartic episode of The Return sparks a wide-ranging discussion with returning guest Byron Davies. Touched upon: whether we can allow/permit ourselves to accept Ed and Norma’s happy ending, The Return‘s handling of the woods as a space of evil and mystery; the possible fates of Becky and Steven; the implications of Cooper’s possible liberation/awakening via Sunset Boulevard, and, of course, our final goodbye to Margaret Lanterman, the Log Lady, and Catherine Coulson.
