I think Donna might be dead.
I think she was in that motorcycle accident with James and died.

At this point it wouldn't surprise me if Donna had died in said accident, yes. That would be a good note to play with James.

Yep. And James is 'quiet' because of it. Laura, then Donna; he must have felt cursed.

Nah. Laura, Maddy, then Donna. Too much. Donna left for college and eventually met someone in the big city.

Yeah, I think they'll mention that she left the town or something like that. Who knows, though.
This is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee.

How sweet would it be if Monica Belluci plays Donna this time?

Makes logical sense, Lynch doesn't have to spell it out for us.


"Oh where's Donna?"

"I don't know, I haven't seen her since college, why are you asking about her?"

"Ummmm....it's written in the script"

I initially had thought Ashley Judd might be Donna but obviously that's the not the case.

I'd be a fan of throwing things for a real loop and having a brunette Sheryl Lee play Donna ;-)

I didn't see "Evolved into a sentient shrub" listed as an option, so I marked "Other."

I'm really stoked at the possibility of Donna being re-cast yet again, it would be very in line with the spirit of the show and film, and that she has a big part. Say what you want about the character in the original series, but she's important and would be really fascinating to see as a middle-aged woman!

I dunno... For me, it's the age that makes me question Lisa Coronado as a recasting choice. She seems a bit too young to play Donna. She's 10 years younger than Lara Flynn Boyle, and 12 years younger than Moira Kelly...

I haven't even considered this, but I like it! Laura was influential on Donna, they were best friends. We see her trying to pick up Lauras threads with Harold, and her imitating Lauras craziness on FWWM at the club. I know in that scene she's just pressing Laura to get her to see how crazy it all is, but to think that over the years Donna has almost morphed into Laura would be great!

I really like this theory lol. :)

Might be over the top, but I think she died in the motorcycle accident with James. Roy Orbison's (whose song In Dreams is in Blue Velvet) first wife died in a motorcycle accident while riding with him on a separate bike, and this is what I thought of during the Roadhouse scene. Just a thought!
