Re: POLL - Do you Like Season Three and How long have you been watching twin peaks.

There are still some unsolved mysteries, eg, what happened to Chester Desmond? Presumably, when he picked up the ring, it transported him to the Red Room, where he remained trapped for several years. Maybe Chester and Coop can try to find their way back together in season 4 :-) they might currently...

Re: Cooper's conversation with The Fireman in episode 1 (linear and non-linear approaches)

I now really think that the conversation is that last thing (chronologically) that we see in the series. Cooper is very far away. He is asked to remember Richard and Linda from his past. i.e. this scene somehow shows us a future Cooper in peril being guided by the Fireman to get out of it. I think ...

Re: The shot fired into the diner...

Is Jessie just absent-minded or is he up to no good? Is he working with Chad on some kind of underhand scheme?

He looks a bit like the man is New York who is paid to watch the glass box.

Is Major Briggs an Orpheus figure?

Several people have notice similarities between Twin Peaks and Greek myth. Orpheus is a great musician and poet who plays the lyre so well, it charms the beasts. He tries to save his wife Eurydice from the Underworld, but he somehow loses her again. He is told to pay homage to Bacchus, the god of wi...

Re: POLL - Do you Like Season Three and How long have you been watching twin peaks.

I enjoyed most of Season 3, but some scenes were too violent, eg, Richard Horne stealing money, and Tim Roth getting shot by machine gun. However, on the whole it was very good. The story was interesting and shed light on many things, like the green ring, the Convenience Store, what happened to Phil...

Re: Works That Influenced Twin Peaks: The Return

There are also a couple of scenes -- Naido walking while feeling the wall (part 3) & Coop leading Laura (parts 17/18) -- that immediately reminded me of Jean Cocteau's Orphee (/ Orpheus ). There are also broader thematic connections, backwards scenes, mirrors, classical Greek statuary (/natuary...

Re: Cooper's conversation with The Fireman in episode 1 (linear and non-linear approaches)

I think it correct to say that Cooper's chat with the Fireman happens between ep 17 and 18. It makes sense in the narrative for it to happen here. Also, he is in the forest near the vortex entrance to the Fireman's palace. The missing FBI pin is probably just a continuity error. Fireman and Giant ar...

Re: Valentine's Day 1989

I wonder why Laura would give James the necklace on that particular day, 5th February, rather than waiting just 9 more days until Valentine's Day (14th February), which seems more appropriate for giving such a broken-heart-shaped gift?

Idea for Twin Peaks/Eastenders crossover

After having shattered Bob, Freddy Sykes goes back to East London. He goes into the Queen Vic for a pint, and somehow gets into an argument with Phil Mitchell, who has a big, round, bald head. Freddy punches Phil in the head with his green glove, and Phil's head shatters into many pieces, and the fr...

Re: Crescent moon symbol

Thank you to the people who replied to this, especially Novalis for such a detailed response. The matter is much clearer in my mind: Crescent moon: Diana/Diane. Goddess of hunting and the moon. A woman who appears under the moon, in the form of Naido (who is of course Diane in disguise). Upsidedown ...
