That was a great read. I was especially intrigued by Dunham saying he had 19 hours of footage ready for Lynch to watch after he'd had some downtime from shooting The Return. I also hadn't realised just how soon it was after the Pilot that Lynch shot Wild at Heart. I thought it had been after he'd done EP2 of the first season. So that was great to see that clarified. 30 years trying to get The Happy Worker done. Bloody hell. I couldn't put up with that.

Episode 2 was actually shot out of sequence. I believe it was the last episode filmed of the first season, or maybe was filmed overlapping with 7 (all the One-Eyed Jack’s location stuff in Episodes 2, 6 and 7 was done over a couple days). This was presumably done to allow Lynch to focus on Wild at Heart filming and post.
