In fact, the former President of the Soviet Union was so into Twin Peaks he tried to get U.S. President George H. W. Bush to pressure David Lynch into revealing who killed Laura Palmer. Lynch declined, obviously.

Songwriter Ryan Hamilton Walsh noticed this amazing passage from Brad Dukes' book Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks and shared it with the world via Twitter.

The idea of Gorbachev obsessing over the Log Lady so much that he would try and use his political pull to spoil the ending for himself is fucking priceless.
