Re: Who is Alice Tremond?

I rather suspect they're spirits - they use both the names that the grandmother and grandson leeched off other people in the old show and movie, Tremond and Chalfont respectively. ...actually, come to think of it, going by their old M.O. they should've introduced themselves as the Palmers, right? I ...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

I agree with you completely, if we’re taking TFD into account. And I have no doubt that the backstory from TFD was more or less Audrey’s original scripted arc (this has been confirmed by multiple sources). Ergo, in the original script, Audrey probably wasn’t a tulpa, at least not immediately follow...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

Agreed with all your points, especially that in the grand scheme of things, tulpa or no tulpa we're still talking about $character and how they relate to their trauma. Diane's arc spells it out loud and clear. What I meant by the TFD connection is that her early days - which were likely co-plotted a...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

Will saw Mr C get out of that hospital wing and he wasn't dragging around a comatose girl... TFD also chronicles a good chunk of Audrey's life and, from a doylist perspective, I think Mfrost would've handled things differently if he were talking about a tulpa. There's weird bits later on but the ear...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

It couldn't have been consensual since the doppelganger was only in town for a few hours while she was very much in a coma. She wasn't taken anywhere, though? She remained in a coma and woke up a couple of weeks later.

Re: Classic! Great article on the Frost/Lynch relationship in Season 1 and more

Cool find, thanks! "The author is someone called Lynch-Frost. I can only describe it as a kind of Vulcan mind-meld." I knew that Kmac and Ferrer loved their Trek, Mfrost was a very likely candidate but this is the first reference I remember from him :) "'generally my internal pace is ...

But that's the impending mood of that final scene (it's wrong wrong wrong , I get the chills even when I'm just flipping through it to get scr...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

I still wonder why Hastings' secretary (Betty) would only give the coordinates to Ray. Did Ray and her have some prior relationship...? My take after pt17 is that she was also connected with the FBI, directly or indirectly, and tasked with keeping a close eye on Bill and his otherworldly shenanigan...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

If you’d been defending TR’s tediousness after defending the video game stunt’s tediousness it might have been, but nope. Different context. Case 1: aspect of a work is considered tedious by many. I enjoy it, because I find stillness meaningful in that context, and happily defend it. Case 2: aspect...

I'm on record strenuously defending a puzzle in a video game where the solution is to stand still on a switch for twelve minutes and a half, is that cred enough?

Re: Kyle MacLachlan sounding far less optimistic about more Twin Peaks

Having had time to digest the ending and to see how it holds up against the various claims both authors made about it, I think that Lynch's comments about his fascination with ongoing stories may be very relevant here. He wants to be able to keep thinking about a world and its characters. And they'v...
