Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

I've always seen that interior as a weird distillation of some of the series' social themes. You have the abused woman, the attacker and his accomplices, and you have these two almost imperious elderly citizens who do nothing about it though it's in plain view of them, to an almost spectatorial or e...

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

As far as Ed's slightly growing smile, I've always found that it wasn't so much that Ed was overhearing what was happening, but that he was practically willing the outcome into existence. This fits with the idea that it's not really happening, but again, I don't want to talk about that. It very muc...

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

Yeah, my reading of it is that Andy is basically having information beamed into his head. The projected screen is sort of a visual shorthand for the viewer, but Andy is receiving all the information we know those images symbolize. As to Naido, I think there’s something about her context in sequenci...

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

What the hell is the weird poster to the left of the door on Steven and Becky's trailer? It looks almost like a target in a shooting range, and has writing above and below it. I can make out the words "dying for" below the image, but I'm not sure about the rest. It can be seen at 30:41. &...

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

Also note that when Sarah removes her face, it almost looks like Judy is aggressively spitting streams of semen at the trucker. (Maybe I’m stretching, but take a look at the scene...then watch Eraserhead to remember what type of filmmaker we’re dealing with, and get back to me.) I always took this ...

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

Some of the Parts blend together for me a little bit, but this one sticks in my head so vividly in its entirety. It's partly because I first watched it under unique and very aggravating circumstances (in the lobby of a Puerto Rico hotel on my laptop with absolutely terrible Internet service, so it ...

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

When you say that it's confident in the reaction it's causing in the viewer, what reaction is that, exactly? Viewed in this way - as confident in the reaction it's getting - the scene is even more complicated and powerful. It fits in with so much of The Return either predicting viewer response or l...

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 11 - There's fire where you are going (SPOILERS)

I've grown to really like the use of the Shawn Colvin "Viva Las Vegas" (which I had forgotten until recently is also featured in The Big Lebowski!). It's not a great recording, but paired with the footage, it provides a tone I can't quite put my finger on, which you don't usually see expr...

Re: Twin Peaks Actually Explained (Youtube)

I cannot believe this topic has only two pages, considering that thousands and thousands of pages have been produced on TP theory/interpretation on this board. I am not saying that this guy is correct on every single detail (or that this is the only perspective on the show), but some of his discove...

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: Part 5 - Case files (SPOILERS)

Just so we’re clear: Lorraine gets the initial job to kill DougieCoop from Duncan Todd, and she farms it out to Gene and Jake. When they haven’t completed it, she texts “2” to the box (ARGENT), presumably as an acknowledgement of her failure? Mr. C then somehow gets the message, or perhaps just sen...

Re: Parts 3 & 4 - Call for help & ...brings back some memories (SPOILERS)

I’m not entirely clear on whether or not DoppelCoop intended to get arrested at this point. Obviously he wanted to get to Ray, and downloaded the prison schematics...but what a strange way to get arrested. It seems unnecessarily risky to be driving at 2:53 when he anticipated things going haywire. ...

Re: Part 5 - Case files (SPOILERS)

I love the Buenos Aires space and the room to dream that it leaves the audience. It looks like a neglected file room or derelict file storage space. I’m guessing that this was the device that Jeffries (or was it always someone impersonating him?) used to contact Mr. C on his device as we see in Par...
