Lynch just changed television, again. Amazing.

I do think the girl in New Mexico who, uh, just had a flying bug frog thing crawl into her mouth was... Sarah Palmer.

Extra point about the Giant: he's clearly a caretaker, but what if he's a symbol of God? What made me think that is how he clearly sent Laura to earth. Really makes you think. It parallels the whole explanation for UFOs and aliens thing which were a result of the explosion.

Wasn't there something about the year 1956? Was that when people thought that BOB possessed Leland at Pearl Lakes? or something in TSHOP about 1956? Definitely going to read it in the next two weeks...

I'll admit, it was a little frustrating to not spend any time in Twin Peaks or Las Vegas. But so many of us were hoping this season would push the mythology forward, which this episode absolutely did. And DoppelCooper survived the shots??? But BOB has left him? What's happening there?

That might be the greatest hour of television ever made.

People are going to hate it.

Filler is a distraction to pad time and doesn't necessarily have any bearing of importance on plot. This was the exact opposite. Just cuz it's weird & not of immediate plot exposition doesn't mean filler yo.

Yeah. First he smashed it to pieces with a sledgehammer in the FWWM intro.

And tonight, he blew it up with an atomic bomb.

Look forward to laughing at the detractors thread in due course.


You like Twin Peaks, You like David Lynch, You like Twin Peaks and David Lynch. This was a you like David Lynch episode. And that's good for me. Although I think this episode was insanely important for the plot if you can follow it. I actually think that the Laura ball, is actually the soul that ascended in Fire Walk With Me. I say that because when the kid died a few episodes ago, he floated up as a gold dust. Just my opinion.

Some questions

The Nuke brought BoB to earth?

Why did we see Laura's face in the golden Orb?

Did the orb turn into the insect that hatched?

Who's the little girl that swallowed the bug? Sarah Palmer? A Chalfont maybe?

DoppleCoop can't be killed by normal means?

Did I just watch a 5 minute music video by Nine Inch Nails?

What did I just watch?

Yeah, I think just about everybody is on the same page about the door between worlds being blown open.... or more open.... and maybe the origin of Laura. It may actually more straightforward episode than it initially appears.
