Re: The Ring

My thinking was that Laura was already resigned to die that night, ring or no ring. We hear this time and time again: from her diary entries on both the show and in Jennifer Lynch’s book, from Jacoby in the therapy scene with Bobby, and even without all that, I think it’s super clear from Sheryl’s ...

Re: The Ring

Truly epic and insightful post, Reindeer! Pardon my simplemindedness, but isn't the simplest explanation for Cooper telling Laura not to take the ring that if she takes it, she will die? He doesn't want her to die (as The Return makes crystal clear), so he tells her not to take it. Wearing it means ...

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

This Part has so many different energies, many of them really intense. The raw emotion of the Ed/Norma reunion, and Margaret's death, the surreal mythological excitement of the Dutchman's, the existential terror of the Gersten/Steven scene, the weirdly horrific "Axolotl" closing. This one...

Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

I've speculated that maybe Janey-E is a tulpa due to her naming, but I know it's a dangerous rabbit hole to start screaming "tulpa" at every character. I really wonder how Dougie ended up with her though. It seems like a big coincidence, unless Mr. C planned it for some reason. But if he ...

Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

Man, Wild West sort of pumps me up with this hopeful feeling about where we’re headed everytime I rewatch, despite knowing where we’re headed isn’t a world where all you lose you get back and all you want you can have. I know some people were down on it but I like it as a song and from a thematic s...

Mr. Reindeer wrote:
I thought it might have been Richard who ran Trick off the road, given his driving record, and his desperation to escape town!


Ahhh, right. That definitely makes sense to the point that now I'm wondering if I misremembered my original thought, haha!

Re: Part 12 - Let's rock (SPOILERS)

God, there are SO many random farmers in this series. The Farm (which we eventually learn isn't actually a farm), the farmers who Chantal & Hutch kill (or maybe just drug) to use their place, the farmer whose truck Richard had for some reason. I'd completely forgotten Trick saying a farmer had ...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

I’ve come to really like most of the Mr. C material, but for some reason the arm-wrestling scene just doesn’t really do it for me. I’m always rooting for it to pull me in, but it just feels like such a normal, predictable scene that could be from any movie. It is interesting that Mr. C sort of beco...

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

Oh, I think the sound design on the can is 100% intentional. If there’s one area where Lynch is exceptionally particular, even for him, it’s with sound, and he did all the sound for the show himself. I think he saw that when she picks up the can it clearly doesn’t have any heft to it and reads as a...

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

It’s interesting, Diane doesn’t appear to be acting when she meets the Doppelganger in prison and asks who he is. But here, we learn that she’s working for him and they exchange texts. I wonder if her tulpa programming blocks her from remembering certain things at certain times. Or if her loyalty t...

Re: Twin Peaks Actually Explained (Youtube)

Joel Bocko's videos really are the cream of the crop. His latest few on Lynch's collaboration with Mary Sweeney are particularly good. I'm always interested in Joel's thoughts and look forward to his video focused specifically on The Return. But I read something in print a while back with him and s...

Re: Twin Peaks Actually Explained (Youtube)

Now that said, I think he has overestimated Lynch's will to criticize television. After watching his analysis I am 100% convinced that the television/cinema/viewer angle is a crucial and very likely THE most important angle to understanding the show. For my part, I think the reason this theory isn'...

Re: Part 8 - Gotta light? (SPOILERS)

It’s interesting to me when Ray says, “I saw something in Cooper. It may be the key to what this is all about.” Is Bob more central/important to TR than it seems? Conversely: Frost in TFD portrays Judy/Jowday/Joudy and Bob/Ba’al as contemporaries/counterparts, but here it seems like Bob is just one...
