Re: Part 18: something's bugging me...

You always have to assume the possibility of dream states with Lynch, but whether this ending is a "dream" in the classic sense or an alternate timeline/reality I think the morning Coop wakes up and finds the note is not the very next morning after the Diane sexual encounter. Another reas...

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

Seem like the main thing is that the soundtrack fits perfectly, but that can be explained by Lynch maybe intending to use Laura's Theme during that scene as well, but deciding he liked it without music better.

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

Likely this has been discussed, but just a quick question. Even though what year it is has never been of much importance to Lynch (which is why I don't know why he ended the show with that question), I guess I incorrectly assumed Laura's murder occurred in February 1990. In Part 18 Cooper goes back...

Re: Annie and Dale

To be honest, I never bought the Annie romance as a substantial love for Dale. It struck me more as he finally allowed himself a rebound from Caroline, and was smitten with Annie but not truly in love with her. It was only a few days, after all. And Annie, having spent some years in a convent, was c...

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

I would love to hear this criticism from someone who has actually watched the last 15 minutes synched up, including the end credits. The Lynch/Frost logo was presented at the end of episode 18 without sound because it was the last episode and so therefore it should have no sound? OK, that seems lik...

Re: Creepiest/scariest scene(s) [Spoilers]

DoppelCoop's prison interview with Cole (at least the first one, before it became apparent that the voice is either a doppelganger quirk with electricity or he's just putting it on for a laugh whenever he meets old colleagues. Considering it was probably my favourite part of S3, it doesn't make muc...

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

Further reflection not directly related to Part 18: During my recent rewatch of the first two seasons -- which began to overlap The Return -- I found the Windom Earle character and storyline to be sort of embarrassingly bad. It felt so banal and immature compared with everything that had come befor...

this was a good observation from the 17/18 sync analysis though: https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/1600/1*1_LGdC3feiG61EiHUr4jLQ.jpeg ^ Diane + Marjorie Cameron (later Parson) as we read about in Frost's Secret History Yeah, I don't know if I buy the 17 and 18 need to be watched in synch but I lo...

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

Anybody find the last shot of The Return strange? Check out the below image. Sorry for the low picture quality (had to play with file size, remove color to make attachment size here at work to be able to upload). On viewing, I thought the image of Cooper was different in some way as it faded out. L...

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

Wonderful theory, I will stick with that." There's a lot about that theory I disagree with. I agree with what someone said in the comments: "One is that the noise in the White Lodge in the beginning is more likely the sound of Judy, not the sound of the White Lodge. Likewise, it’s probabl...

I had been hoping for a joke like that about Cooper from Albert and was not disappointed.

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

You people are thinking more about this show than Lynch himself in all his life. The person who cares less about how all of this makes sense or ties together is the man himself. The game is over. No, the game is on. Forever. Lynch and Frost know this fandom. Back in the day they cliffhangered every...

1. Diane. I think it had to be Diane. Because she has some traits Audrey, Annie and Janey-E do not have. She's his coworker. She is representative of his life's work. Not only that, her name is the first word Cooper speaks in the pilot. She's the only connection that predates coming to Twin Peaks. S...

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

But even more than that: this whole grand scheme of Cooper’s, aided by Briggs, and supposedly coordinated at some point (when? before DoppelCoop leaves the lodge?) with Gordon Cole seems really clumsily handled and explained. And it IS a plot piece that was supposed to be explained. For one thing, ...

Re: Recut of TPTR

I'd absolutely love a recut or fan edit of this. However, it's such an absolute mess with no running narrative connections other than the Dougie Jones stuff that it seems impossible, or at least an extremely daunting task. And now that I think about it, the ending would negate any kind of recut any...
