Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Didn’t he already put a jokey reference to Lana dating Trump in the first book? I guess? Trump was just running for office when the first book came out, so it has more resonance now since another U.S. president is associated with the Owl ring. It implies conspiracies are influencing who gets to be ...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

This is hard confirmation as well that Cooper did indeed change history. Sort of undercuts the whole purpose of the show IMO. Ah well. I always thought it was pretty clear Cooper changed history in Season 3. I know it's a bit ambiguous but the main fan argument that Cooper didn't seemed to be the S...

This is hard confirmation as well that Cooper did indeed change history. Sort of undercuts the whole purpose of the show IMO. Ah well. Indeed, there's more than one problem in making the "ambigous lynchian ending" a hard fact, and the more I think of Frost's words on this, the more it tro...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Just read the book. It's very slight. What happened to Annie is not interesting, it just felt like it was going through the motions ("I waited 25 years for that?)". Similarly what happened to Audrey in the book is much less interesting than what we see on screen. The Donald Trump referenc...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Does the book really not address why Shelly and Bobby split up? And it outright indicates Laura disappears and didn't die in the original timeline?! Only the Blue Rose agents remember the original timeline. The town residents of Twin Peaks seem to have a foggy memory of what happened but rememb...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

Hmm I don’t recall Hawk calling her evil. He said Frank never wants to know about her, which fits with Judy being an enemy to humanity, but not necessarily objectively evil. Gordon is the only person I recall calling her evil. I might be misremembering though? My thinking was that she is a facet of...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

I haven’t been active in this thread because I don’t feel particularly qualified, as an entitled white male. But I’ve enjoyed following the perspectives shared. As things are slowing down on the board overall, I thought I’d repost something I originally said in the Part 8 thread last week: I know t...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

Anyway, popped in to share this article about how media commonly normalizes female oppression. How many boxes does TR tick? https://radfemimages.wordpress.com/the-gears/#necrophilia I think in general in TR men are predators- they prey both on other men and on women, though with the women the preda...

Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

And yes, I am very aware that we aren't supposed to know nor figure it out. Since there's a subset of fandom that seems to think we're supposed to create youtube videos playing two scenes side by side in order to unlock secret meanings, I thought it was worth pointing out that David Lynch isn't The...

Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

Maybe she once more told him the killer's (BOB) name, Cooper himself in this case. No way Lynch directed her to ad-lib just whatever. That wouldn't suit his style at all. He is so in to details, also unnoticeable ones. It isn't a clue. You aren't supposed to know what she said. If the audience isn'...

Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

I'd be genuinely surprised if it ever turns out that Lynch and Frost actually decided what she whispers. She is whispering something! Her mouth is party visible for the first part. Some skilled lip readers here? I bet Lynch, Frost, Kyle and Sheryl know. Neh, Sheryl Lee is probably just ab-libbing s...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

Janey-E certainly doesn't consider Dougie to be worthless, but rather as her meal-ticket. While I suppose an interpretation of a show can't be "objectively" right or wrong, your take on Jane-E is so removed from mine that we might as well have been watching different TV shows. I'd say Jan...

Re: Dougie Milford, Dougie Jones

Mark Frost 10/26/16 1:58pm I’ve been keeping that ace up my sleeve for many years. Aha! Good find - I'd forgotten this. In which case I suppose Mark had Dougie Milford in mind throughout and (probably) gave the name "Dougie" to Dougie Jones when they were writing The Return... why? Knowin...
