Sarah Palmer, Twin Peaks’ grieving mother
When Sarah Palmer calls Laura for breakfast that terrible February 24, 1989, she finds her daughter’s bed empty.
Sarah Palmer is worried and calls up Betty Briggs unable to confirm if Laura is with Betty’s son Bobby Briggs, who left at 5 am for his morning run and football practice.
While Sarah is on the phone with her husband Leland Palmer who’s working at the Great Northern Hotel, she hears Sheriff Truman arrive to bring her husband the bad news: Their beloved daughter Laura Palmer is found dead.
After hearing the terrible news, Sarah Palmer has a nervous breakdown. Dr Hayward, a friend of the Palmer family, helps calm down the grieving mother with sedatives.
