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

253 time and time again... is that why there are 2 dates on the piece of paper that Major Briggs left Bobby,Hawk and Truman? I wonder if it's referring to 2:53 AM on the night of 10/1 (so, the night that 10/1 becomes 10/2). Briggs is a military guy, so it seems like he would have used 14:53 if he w...

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

William Hastings says he doesn't have the coordinates as Ruth wrote them down. If that's the case, why would his secretary have them? Ray was trying to get them from his secretary correct? Or are these separate coordinates? One that Briggs is looking for and ones that helped him enter the 'dimensio...

Re: Season 3 Timeline (SPOILERS)

So, complicating things further, Hastings says in Part 9 that the night that Ruth died was "last Thursday." If we're taking the series editing/sequence at face value, this does not gel with Part 9 being 9/29 and DoppelCoop being arrested a week earlier on 9/22 (with Hastings's arrest thre...

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

I like that in this part , Bobby has the wonderfully sheepish joy about him of one who realises he is finally of some use to the weird world of this investigation. Which then blooms to become full blown boyish enthusiasm tinged with memories of his late father. And then we have the belated discover...

Re: Season 3 Timeline (SPOILERS)

He has to come up with ways to make the exact runtime (the alternative was to have uneven parts, but obviously for reasons his own Lynch and Showtime opted not to do that). Actually, this isn't true. The lengths of Parts have been pretty close, but have varied enough that it's clear Lynch feels no ...

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

Lynch's later movies, even Inland Empire at three hours, don't suffer from clustering expository information in a way this season tends to Does it, though? What watching it all together clarified for me is that the apparent "clusters" are kind of an illusion. Now, at this particular point...

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

If I could toss one pacing criticism at the new season as a whole, as well, it would be that there isn't a better weekly balance of plot movement and aesthetic/visual moments, as, when viewed as a weekly series, episodes tend to lean hard toward one or the other, and it does make me feel limp on th...

Re: Season 3 Timeline (SPOILERS)

- Andy doesn't mention his investigation about the truck of the accident, and his appointment at 4:30, "near the Joneses", as seen in Part 7 - Nobody speaks about the death of the little boy, seen in Part 6. However the scene with Andy in Part 7 seemed linked with that. This is actually q...

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

Something I'm genuinely surprised not to have seen discussed at all yet: When Bushnell mentions that he wants to work together and "get some answers," Coop repeats "answers" back, but in a tone of voice nothing like what we've heard from him so far. KM's delivery of that line, al...

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

He always wore his heart on his sleeve, but he displayed a wide range of emotions: arrogance, cockiness, anger, humor, lust (for Shelly), and fear as well. In season 3 he just looks like he's about to cry all the time. Well we have only seen him in a handful of scenes in just two Parts. Maybe the m...

Re: Season 3 Timeline (SPOILERS)

With COOPER's call to Mr. Todd, pretty much all of the potential readings requiring multiple timelines have been eliminated. The only one that still remains vaguely arguable is that everything happening in Twin Peaks is happening before or after everything else... Yes, the scene with Mr Todd seems ...

Re: Season 3 Timeline (SPOILERS)

So, Part 9 seems to take place on 9/29 (Frank Truman says 10/01 is 2 days away; Bill Hastings dates his ID of Major Briggs as what appears to be "9/20," but people have speculated it's actually just a sloppy/cut-off "9/29"). Yeah, I think the sloppy 29 theory is probably right--...

Re: Episode 5 Character Parentage Poll (Spoilers)

The first scene he blows big bucks so he can smoke in peace. Pretty sure that's a drug deal money exchange with Chad and the smoking was a cover so Chad could have a reason come to his table and get the cash. He didn't peel off a hundy, he had a wad from moving "sparkle." Red seems to be ...

So much going on in this thread! I feel like Coop waking up at the hospital after he got shot. "How long have I been out?!" To Novalis and to Cipher: I'm absolutely loving both your recent posts. I'm only responding occasionally because it would be pretty redundant to simply quote you and ...

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

You mentioned being influenced by the New Critics at one point Actually, I believe this was an assumption that BlueRose made at some point when responding to one of my posts (sorry if it wasn't you, BlueRose--I could definitely be misremembering). I never mentioned the New Critics specifically. I g...
