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

I rewatched Part 14 just now and noted that Coop is wearing the FBI pin in Gordon’s dream (when Gordon can’t see his face). I forgot about that. Possibly from Gordon's perspective, Cooper's social role (special agent) takes precedence over his actual personality/soul. If Gordon has a narrow and wor...

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

In episode 17 Gordon Cole reveals the plan he, Briggs and Cooper concocted together. At the time - 25 years ago, Cooper explained that the plan was about taking care of "two birds with one stone". To me that specific choice of word means the scene could take place way back - maybe even be...

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

It's interesting to trace the path of the FBI pin on Cooper. He doesn't have it in the opening scene with The Fireman, does have it in episodes 2-3 while in the Black Lodge/Purple Room. He then doesn't have the pin again until he is in the Great Northern's basement with DIane and Gordon Cole. Cooper...

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

Yeah I am inclined to think The Giant and The Fireman are different characters, possibly both of the same species of giant lodge spirits? But given how little we saw of The Giant in the original series, I don't think it's so far fetched to think that The Fireman is just a more fleshed out version o...

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

Recently rewatched episode 1 of The Return for the first time since the finale, and it occurred to me that Cooper's conversation with The Fireman might fit sort of easily between episodes 17 and 18. It lines up with some occurrences from 17 and 18: - The sound Fireman urges Cooper to listen to is id...

Re: Works That Influenced Twin Peaks: The Return

I don't want to assume that any movie/tv show is Robert Altman-esque just because it has a lot of characters, but his "Nashville" came to my mind while watching The Return. Both works are dense characters mosaics where the vast majority of it's characters bounce around independent of each ...

Re: Important JUDY Related Observation

So if Judy is another way of saying "to explain", then ultimately Bad Coop is searching for the explanation for everything in Twin Peaks. Is this why he is a villain, because he is attempting to reduce the vastness of the world down to an explanation? And by contrast, is Dougie a hero spec...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

It's weird, I always believed DIane to be a real person during the original series [....] Diane's character is just about the most complex character in Twin Peaks. Interesting interview with Laura Dern here about how she sees Diane... http://www.indiewire.com/2017/09/laura-dern-twin-peaks-finale-se...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

- Dougie is a tulpa, his joy in "returning home" is naive and somewhat superficial. The home he returns to is the real deal and reacts postitively to his homecoming. - Laura is the original, her pain and sorrow in "returning home" go deep. The home she returns to is twisted and ...

Re: Part 17 - The past dictates the future (SPOILERS)

I think it's interesting that Laura screams and flees from James who was trying to take her home, then turns around and does the same thing with Cooper (although Cooper was taking her to a different kind of "home"). We assume that something snatched her away here and in part 2, but maybe s...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

I feel like there is a kind of contrast between Dougie's joyous return home and Laura's amnesiac-to-waking-nightmare return home. The episode begins and ends with these moments of homecoming. I don't know what it means per se, but maybe someone else has a take on this.

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

I'm still having trouble reconciling the Cooper/Diane romance and Annie falling off the radar with everything we knew about pre-TPTR Cooper up until now. Even if you assume that this was sort of a "Mulder and Scully" thing with the two of them having mostly suppressed their feelings back ...

Re: More on The Searchers similarities

I just watched Searchers for this first time ever recently, and seeing a young(er) Senor Droolcup was a fun surprise. Especially with all of his "thank you kindly" and the Indian sound he makes... It's almost like Hank Worden was playing the same character in both Twin Peaks and the Search...
