With the original 'Twin Peaks' series and the movie "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me", we met three brothers by the name of Renault: Jean, Jacques, and Bernard.  They were all involved in criminal activities, from prostitution to drug-running.  And one by one, they were all killed:
  • Bernard shot by Leo Johnson
  • Jacques smothered by Leland Palmer
  • Jean shot by FBI Agent Dale Cooper
And that should have been the end of the Renault family crime dynasty.  But now 25 years later, we have a new relative by that surname - Jean-Michel Renault.

He must be related, although there is still some splainin to do as to what the exact connection is.  To look at Jean-Michel, one might think that he was Jacques' twin brother, not just a look-alike half brother or "Identical cousin", but a legitimate twin brother.

Until we find out otherwise, I'm going to consider Jean-Michel and Jacques Renault to be "identical cousins", in the deeper Toobworld suggestion of them sharing the same father.  That he also bears the family name would mean that the father of the Renault brothers had a relationship with his sister-in-law, or perhaps with a cousin, or - this being Lynch country - with his own sister.  That would make Jean-Michel the half-brother and cousin to the other Renault boys.

We shall view what we shall view.
