Anyone else feel more certain that the room with the Giant was the White Lodge? It seemed to be a large estate, as Major Briggs described. And filled with light...

Probably pointed out, but, with all the nuke connections, it really makes it appropriate that the Sheriff of Twin Peaks when Laura was killed was Harry S. Truman, the same name of the President who dropped two nukes on Japan.

I thought the episode was amazing. It was Lynch doing things even he hasn't done before, and I was utterly transfixed. It will take a while to process all that.

I get that the reactions are polarizing. I understand people not being into this. But I'm amazed and delighted that something this far out and experimental was foisted on mainstream audiences.

With the over-commercialisation of television and films over the last 25 years, stopping things like this from being made, I feel like some sort of victory has been won. I hope it is the start of a new era, where we no longer have to put up with unchallenging dross.

I looked for Badalamenti in the music credits. Obvs the main music featured involved established composers/ bands, bu the other song "Slow 30s Room", was credited to "David Lynch and Dean Hurley." I'm not sure which song that was -- but: the music playing as the Giant levitated and the lady looked up, it kept reminding me of some of the music from TP S2 so I was expecting Badalamenti has something to do with it, and kind of disappointed that he hadn't~

One thing I took note of while my mind was busy being shredded (in a GOOD way): The poem that the charcoal man reads contains a reference to a horse (and also a well, which makes me think of Inland Empire, but never mind...). Did anyone else notice the faint horse sounds at the end of the episode as charcoal man walks away? I think I only noticed because white horses have always figured strongly in the Lodge mythology.

And yes, the man who introduced NIN looked so much like Jimmy Scott that I actually gasped.

As much as pretty much nothing made sense to me. I can't deny the fact that it was unlike Anything on TV before. And it was pretty damn beautiful to watch.

They don't credit Angelo tracks because he's credited at the top, there was no reference to the car accident theme for example.

I do think of the few weaknesses this season has, and obviously a large part of it is out of Lynch's hands, is the missing spirits from the original run. Obviously Frank Silva has been well-represented despite his death, but MJA being absent entirely (for good reason ..), the death of the woman who played Chalfont, the lack of any of those background spirits from the Convenience Store scene in FWWM. Would've been nice just to have a tiny bit more connection.

I really really do like the 'Gotta Light?' guy, assuming that's the same hobo spirit from previous episodes this season? Or were there more than one spirit in this episode? Hard to tell in the 50's segments due to how dark they were lit. They got under my skin in a way Bob never managed to do.

The most accurate recollection of a quote there can be.

Yeah.

For anyone who is not doing so already, I highly recommend watching with headphones. The sound design is fascinating and immersive.

Exactly! This was completely enthralling, spoke to me on so many levels, seemed to explain things and leave mystery, it was beautiful, mesmerizing, horrific, reassuring, terrorizing, scary, sad and interesting.

This was art.

The value of Twin Peaks was artistically raised by this episode.

I can wait to find out "what happens next".

This was an hour well worth spent.

Including Nine Inch Nails.

Trent succeeded in so many ways that Lynch has in their respective fields, doing it the true, hard, fucked up way.

It was fitting that an entire NIN song would play after that scene with DoppelCoop and the Lodge crazies.

This is all so much more profound than I thought it would be and I couldn't be happier.

I don't think original Badalamenti music would be credited in the end credits. He gets an opening title credit. I think that was an original composition.

The scene where the Giant/???? goes into the theater made me gasp. It looks very much like Club Silencio from Mulholland Drive, right?
