Very nice!

Hey Lonelysoul, I'm kind of living off the grid right now and wondering if you'd be so kind to forward some questions.
1) Were any plot elements we've seen in season 3 conceptualized or outlined in the early 90's when Twin Peaks was still happening? If so, which?
2) Joudy or Jow-day?
And Mark, thanks so much for your work on Twin Peaks! You have inspired and touched me deeply once more. :)

I believe all these phenomena that our putted-up egos and busy ant minds persist in trying to label, categorize, penetrate, and comphrehend, all spring from this same uncanny source. This is the mother of all "others".

I’m not on Reddit, but I’m tempted to join for this. If I don’t get the opportunity, I hope someone asks Mark if there’s any chance of the script being published at some point.

Sure, I'll throw the question in the mix and see what he says!

Another one which I'd love to ask:

I'd be very curious to get some insight in the process of reviving BOB/Silva. Did you two immediately think of using old imagery to revive him, or were other options/workarounds also considered? (recast? an omission through writing?)

Got my question answered. Maddy is presumed alive in the new timeline and Ronette was brought to the traincar without Leland's involvement because Leo and Jacques were stupid and impulsive...

I'm never quite sure answers this vague and deflecting are truly because they want to leave it up to the reader, or whether it's just something they haven't thought of. Probably a bit of both I imagine.

I wish it was possible to ask multiple follows up to this. What about Diane? What about Laura/Carrie (I am assuming that Jeffries travelled through time but I guess he wasn't counting FWWM).

Frost closed with "Have a happy and safe couple of months." Anybody else find this a curious thing or just something to do with the holidays? Why not say enjoy the holidays?

Has Twin Peaks messed me up?
