Re: Theories & Speculation

I think we need to be more precise when talkiing about “Dougie” in this context. We have (1) Dougie-A, created by Mr. C “for a purpose”; (2) Dougie-Coop, the incarnation of “our” Dale we spend most of the season with; and (3) Dougie-B, created by Dale to go home to his family. I assume Rik Renault ...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

Late Reg - yes, an interrogation of nostalgia is a great way of describing it. The Cahiers du Cinema interview with Lynch details how he says the season ends in the Hindu Iron age, which is not a good one overall, so yes its not a clearly happy ending. But there is still room for a continuation and...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

We have seen it for 22 episodes, multiple times. I honestly think it would’ve served no purpose at all especially since it’s linked to one of the most iconic moments of TP, one that can’t even be emulated in the slightest. I honestly think it was better this way, as Indiana Jones thought us, some s...

Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

Heather Graham is freaking awesome, and I’d have loved to see her work with DKL as a more mature artist. But I don’t think Annie was ever anything more than another stone along a path. Not that Dale thought of her that way; I think his intentions were pure, and maybe they even might have become a s...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

I was expecting more shots of the iconic Sign Board as it was featured heavily in the teasers,but all we got was a 1 sec scene :( We have seen it for 22 episodes, multiple times. I honestly think it would’ve served no purpose at all especially since it’s linked to one of the most iconic moments of ...

Re: Theories & Speculation

I wonder if the reason Cooper goes back and leads Laura Palmer out of the woods is not to change the past in order to save Laura from her pain and her death that night at the hands of Leland, but instead to save Diane from eventually being raped/traumatized/tulpa-fied by Cooper/Mr. C. Laura was alr...

Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

You have to admit that the Freddie stuff was deliberately bad though? I'm not saying that redeems it exactly! :D Reindeer and I have discussed this ad nauseum, and I certainly agree. More than that, all of the opening of Part 17, with the notoriously word-phobic Lynch himself delivering the retcon,...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

I think the odds for another season of TP is close to zero. It's wrapped up. Also, I don't see any profound similarity between the major themes of IE and TPS3. In a way IE is much like Eraserhead; a very personal movie and a spiritual one on top of that. When Lynch finished IE at last, the first th...

Re: Theories & Speculation

I agree with IcedOver that I don't believe the question is meant to be answered literally. But I also wholeheartedly agree with MT and Reindeer, who have essentially combined to outline my thinking on what we're seeing. In essence, The Return is a metaphysical work. It's all about questioning realit...

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome)

I wonder if the Fireman adjusts his communication style depending on the audience he's addressing. So where the straightforward Freddie receives explicit instructions, the detective Dale Cooper gets a series of riddles and opaque clues. As for Andy, who isn't the most educated but has a degree of e...

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome)

Also, it's not like Twin Peaks has ever subscribed to the kind of strict narrative rules you describe. That is, really, the heart of the problem. It's not like Lynch and Frost went back and examined how the Giant behaved in the original. They just used a same actor as a similar character, without a...

Re: Theories & Speculation

Great post indeed, Jerry. Never thought about the playing card! I'm a primary advocate for numerous levels of reality intersecting, each equally real. Vegas as pocket could fit into that, but there's maybe no "literal" way to make sense of it, which I'm fine with. I'm also one who pointed ...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

I would say that thing in the dude's chest in Odessa is definitely an orb like the Bob orb. There's no question in my mind, even though it took me forever to notice it, and only did after it was pointed out. It looks just like it, same color, same texture. Also, as you know from my interpretation, I...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

Needleman and Reindeer, please remind me of the Norma and Vivian part of TFD...from what I remember isn't it also possible this is an example of shifting/multiple timelines? Especially when you factor Annie's age in there, which can't be right, if I recall (16 when she met Coop?). I'm all about the ...

I think so, yes.
