I said it once and I'll say it again: if that's gonna be their stance, why call it "Twin Peaks" in the first place - it could be literally anything (else). Pilot be damned. There were 29 installments afterwards.


The show hasn't even started yet.

Those are all kind of minor 80's/90's continuity errors that I'm sure most TV viewers expect from that era of television for one reason or another. I just don't want major characters or plot points to be completely changed without it having a greater meaning is all I'm saying.

Half my examples were old cross-media continuity misfires, but the other half was pure TSHOTP! Which I've always believed to elevate the old inconsistencies to "feature, not bug" status. All these details, they don't really matter to the deeper nature of the characters. The important connections stay through all these possible variations on the story.

I trust that any big change like your Shelly example (or Annie's disappearance) is gonna be a plot point and treated as such...

25 years later guys, Shelly is going to be different, as everyone else.

I think at this stage- and with only a few days left, and for varying degrees of twenty seven years of waiting - let everyone enjoy this time when anything and everything is possible. If someone wants Audrey to be an FBI agent, or someone is adamant about certain continuity - let them have it at this moment. We're never getting back some of the wonderment we had in our frustration of what if.
God, I love this music. Isn't it too dreamy?

I’m Mädchen Amick and I’m in Riverdale and PLAYED Shelley Johnson in Twin Peaks." [Laughs]

Interviewer: “That’s such a good clue!” [Madchen continues to laugh conspiratorially and claps her hands together]



Not going to lie. While I'm open to some interpretation I really will be a bit bugged if some iconic characters are playing different roles. Shelly being one of them. I don't want some Inland Empire character confusion.


In the new promo, you can see Gia Carides mouth to Madchen "Shelly, who is it?"



To me it looks like she's asking "(what's) Sarah doing?"

Lynch and Frost have been blowing off continuity wrinkles for 27 years. You're expecting them to treat this with the somber exactitude of something like Star Trek (which I like, don't get me wrong) now?

And BTW, for God's sake, Mädchen is playing Shelly. She's just bantering with the talk show host. Relax.

True story on both points. We could literally write a book about all the TP inconsistencies, and I bet we would still miss some.

That's not the point of the discussion. It was her not playing Shelly but a new character which had some of us concerned.

We don't know that for sure and to be fair she did look a bit different in terms of vibe from what Shelly gives off in the one trailer we saw of her. She did however confirm some of the original actors would be playing different characters. I hope it is just limited to characters who have died.

I still think the line "a time presents itself" is significant. If not an outright alternative timeline, I think there will be a DKL version of that idea, while somehow also being "25 years later", hence some inconsistencies.
