Series directorial debut by Jennifer Lynch.
Director Lynch is the daughter of Twin Peaks creator David Lynch.
Jennifer Lynch made her directorial debut in the movie Boxing Helena (1993) starring Twin Peaks luminary Sherilyn Fenn as the said Helena.
Boxing Helena also featured Bill Paxton who would later be in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the first season playing John Garrett.
Garrett died at the end of the first season and sadly so did Paxton in real life a few years later in 2017.
Fortuitously I saw Boxing Helena just before seeing All Roads Lead… as I found out shortly before seeing the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode that both share the same director in Lynch.
The benefits of seeing both narratives in close proximity in time is that Lynch’s direction of Dove Cameron in her painful moment as Ruby is very much akin to how Lynch directed Sherilyn Fenn as Helena.
Shocking that Yo-Yo killed Ruby in order to save the world and intriguing on Hale seeing Qovas and what he revealed to her.
Also pretty good of the other plot of Talbot and the control the brain washing has on him including him taking Robin and how all this got resolved.
