Re: Caroline & Carrie

I'm also going to go off topic & ask: is Diane Cooper's anima? (with the tape recorder substituting for Coop's unconscious?). If so, does that mean he raped a part of himself in failing to confront the trauma within his psyche? (ie: did he fuck himself up?). Did he attempt to assassinate his con...

Caroline & Carrie

Apologies if this has been mentioned/discussed before, but I'm wondering if there's any connection between Caroline Earle & Carrie Page? The primary constituent of Cooper's Shadow (at least in the original run) appears to be Caroline's death, which in turn cemented his saviour complex, &c, &...

Re: Two birds with one stone

I also feel Richard Horne functions as an expression of the negative side of Coop's psyche, possibly relating to his rape(s) that are presumably repressed in some form (what better form than a Horney Dick?) It's almost like Coop's repressed destructive side is birthed/fathered into the character of ...

Re: Two birds with one stone

Interesting post Cappy! & one of the few I've seen that gives a reason for (part 18) Richard's name, aside from ostensibly completing the 'Richard & Linda' prophecy. One of my original feelings was that Coop experienced another kind of (troubled) rebirth in part 18, & -- somehow connecte...

Re: Part Zero - The Sound Of Death; Doors Opening

Nice work!! :D I've been pretty flat-out the past few days (am now having a few drinks with Mary-Jane, thank the Fireman) but am very glad that I was still able to catch this before the relevant authority pulled it down. Love the contrast between the trees/woods & the city. & excellent choic...

Thanks for the heads up Qubism; I for one will be tuning in when the stars align. :)

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Satisfied Support Group (SPOILERS)

Even BV — one of his only traditionally happy endings (and possibly my least favorite due to its unearned nature) has been characterized by some as deliberately artificial/cynical, with its blatantly fake “robin” effect (not saying I agree that this was DKL’s intent, but the interpretation is valid...

Re: Interpreting Season 3 of Twin Peaks by way of late Lynch - a guide with emphasis on what the ending means

I love your post tmurry! I don't have time at the moment to comment in detail (except to say that one of your asides has made me reconsider/re-examine the parallels between Coop's & Mr C's goals), but thought I'd at least drop in for a brief 'Bravo'. :)

Re: Understanding When the Dream Began Can Explain Twin Peaks: The Return

Also of note -- although this may have been mentioned -- the thing that wakes Coop up is a line from Sunset Boulevard, where (Sunset Boulevard spoiler follows)

the story is being told by a dead person.

Re: Understanding When the Dream Began Can Explain Twin Peaks: The Return

I adore this theory; thank you very kindly for posting at length on it wowdavidwow. I've added this interpretation as another lens through which to experience the Return (& Peaks in general) on re-watches. It doesn't concern me overly much as to whether this is what the creators intended, but I ...
