Re: Who is Alice Tremond?

Wow! So THAT was the much-talked-about in-point that gave them both a way in to the story? L/F work in mysterious ways.

Re: Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

I’m glad they kept the Fireman solely in B&W. It would have been weird to have one random shot of him in color. I wonder if DKL was trying to get coverage of flesh and blood actors delivering EotA’s most important lines just in case he couldn’t come up with a CGI design he was happy with.

Re: Who is Alice Tremond?

The White and Black Lodge mythology is rather interesting to think about, as Mark Frost borrowed the concept from Dion Fortune’s Psychic Self-Defense and introduced it into TP mythology in the back half of season 2. Originally a black and white version of the Great Northern was going to be the Blac...

Re: Who is Alice Tremond?

I’d theorized that the Fireman’s might be the White Lodge (mostly due to the gold pool which, as noted, seems like the exact opposite of the oil pool), but I also suspected that it probably wasn’t that simple. It sounds like DKL may have found the challenge that entices him back to TP. ;)

There is a TV in the motel room that is at least ‘80s-era

Re: Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

Good point on the repeated footage from Episode 29. Definite food for thought.

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

I am sorry, but I can only speak on behalf of my own thinking and not, like you, according to what Lynch (DKL) had in mind. Fair enough. Certainly we’re not mind readers, and DKL’s process is about as elusive as any artist’s. But for me, it seems a logical inference. I think many other fans on thes...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

I agree that American Girl is a separate character from Ronette, but there’s not a doubt in my mind that DKL chose her for the role to evoke Ronette in the audience’s mind, not just at random (as opposed to, say, the reuse of Matt Battaglia or Bellina Logan, which were probably just because DKL want...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

For years (probably since the Pilot aired), fans have theorized that Diane is a construct of Dale’s imagination to help him think out loud (or was possibly the name of his tape recorder). I think TP:TR is absolutely having fun with that theory to some extent. As with so many aspects of this show, it...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

What I meant by the TFD connection is that her early days - which were likely co-plotted as the background of her original plotline, as we know for sure that TFD shows where Audrey was originally meant to end up before the whole Fenn tug-of-war, and THEN leads up to her show storyline - don't seem ...

.... It's all been noticed before, but it is remarkable that you leave out the American Girl parallel. http://www.dugpa.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=3730&start=360#p114161 I believe we’ve discussed it before. I get what you’re saying, and I understand the appeal of Cooper encountering (an...

Re: Is Audrey a tulpa?

Like most of the best aspects of TP mythology, tulpas seem to function on both a literal and metaphorical level, which makes them more satisfying than a clone in your typical sci-fi work. Diane’s tulpa — the one we spend by far the most time with — seems to be a symbol of the dissociation and loss o...

Re: Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

I like where your head’s at, Hester, although I’m not crazy about your idea that the Laura scene was repeated solely for the audience’s benefit. The Red Room scenes were carefully re-edited between the Part 2 version and the Part 17 version. Are people generally aware that some of the “repeated” foo...

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

Interesting to see DKL in that first article, before the series even aired, expressing frustration and a growing feeling of losing control as other writers worked on the show without him involved in the day-to-day. I’ve always wondered...did word on the TP pickup come down after DKL was already comm...
