Re: Mark Frost AMA on Reddit 11/8 @ 10 AM Pacific

Frost closed with "Have a happy and safe couple of months." Anybody else find this a curious thing or just something to do with the holidays? Why not say enjoy the holidays? Has Twin Peaks messed me up? Hmmmm, seeing as he's a professional writer, if I had to guess, I'd say he choose that...

Re: Two birds with one stone

The two birds with one stone saying is believed to be originated from the story of Icarus and his father Daedelus. I notice you didn't cite any source for this. A google search suggests this probably isn't true: Many online “experts” believe the usage originated in the story of Daedalus and Icarus,...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

I think if DKL had wanted to explicitly spell out “Sarah=1956 girl,” he would have done so in the series. Lynch didn't write the series, he co-wrote it. So this sentence falsely attributing the series to him isn't very persuasive. To put it another way, it's not possible for us to know what the thi...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

The world will end if Judy and Ba’al meet, right? I never got the sense that Bob was Ba’al/Beelzebub/the devil. In the old show/FWWM, he’s a lesser demon who is accountable to MfAP/Mike. In the new show, he’s one of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of eggs Judy spawns — one of her many children, not her e...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Frost implies the world will end if Judy and Bob meet, so I don't think she's been harboring Sarah until recently, the frog has been dormant. The world will end if Judy and Ba’al meet, right?

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

I always thought it was pretty clear Cooper changed history in Season 3. I know it's a bit ambiguous but the main fan argument that Cooper didn't seemed to be the Star Trek producers claim there are two timelines on Star Trek, and therefore we should consider Twin Peaks's time travel like Star Trek...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

And calling Lana “trash” among other unkind implications seems totally unwarranted. She’s a terrible character, sure — and I’m not sure why Mark felt the need to bring her back aside from the Trump gag he obviously wanted to make — but she never did anything to hurt anyone as far as we know. I agre...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Based on what we know, the only person who could/should have pieced it together is Will, and it puts his character in a pretty compromised light that he waited 25 years to come forward with what he knew. Audrey was not available for Tammy to interview. Does the book indicate if Audrey knew she was ...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

And are we meant to infer that Sarah Judith Nowack Palmer is indeed "Judy"? I don't think she *is* Judy, but rather she has been harboring Judy ever since the encounter with the bug in the '50s. It would appear that Judy only rarely exercises control over her, though. Maybe Sarah's own ps...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Am I the only one who is convinced Bobby or Shelly killed Leo? The cops didn't know that Windom Earle left Leo alive so there was no probable cause to charge them. Also Shelly had no way of knowing Leo wasn't evil anymore since he had tried to kill her last they met. I can't figure out how they loca...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

One problem with the time travel in the show is it is not consistent. The original show and fire walk with me have time travel neither effect present nor future, events happen once and only once so Annie can give Laura a message through time but everything plays out the same, like, fate. Cooper trie...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Leo and Jacques never went to the train car! This is why it's funny when people on other threads are arguing that tiny continuity glitches have deep meanings, or over analyzing decisions made in the editing room. The show's creators are not super-fans and probably care less about details than the s...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

I'm not going to defend the book too much, but in this case I would argue that time travel isn't a real thing, and if you use it in your fiction you get to decide on the rules for it. This makes sense I suppose. There is actually a branch of philosophy which states what sort of time travel is philo...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Didn’t he already put a jokey reference to Lana dating Trump in the first book? I guess? Trump was just running for office when the first book came out, so it has more resonance now since another U.S. president is associated with the Owl ring. It implies conspiracies are influencing who gets to be ...
