I would think Albert would have a holy sh*t moment there, not just gloss over it. And it doesn't make sense to say he didn't relay that info due to Diane being there, since he happily let her crib the coordinates off of the pic

It almost feels like that would have happened before they went to twin peaks 25+ yrs ago.


Hmmm, I see where you're going with that... But if Albert was unfamiliar with Twin Peaks in this current timeframe, why was it heavily implied that Diane (via her face after zooming in on the phone) was WELL aware of the implication of the coordinates pointing there?

It establishes they are a threat and mean business, like the triple homicide with Ike earlier this season.


Yeah, I guess but I thought that was already established with the dead farmers.

I wonder if Q2 is gonna be up for a fan edit some day?

Please, no. IMHO, that's incredibly disrespectful of an artist's work. Doing it with S1+S2 was bad enough. Doing it with a piece of work that is entirely under Lynch's artistic control and is of tremendous importance to him is disrespectful and arrogant to boot.

I actually liked this episode - not my favorite, but there was some great stuff. . .

Audrey's appearance caught me totally off guard! Sherilyn looks AMAZING! What is the contract they had? Did something happen to her as a result of the coma? Is Charlie the same guy in the photo with Mr. C in front of the NY box? And why doesn't Charlie have a last name in the credits?

And what the hell is in Sarah Palmer's kitchen ?! :shock:

I liked how Audrey mentioned dreams can predict the future, or something to that effect. Did anyone else think she was referencing Cooper?

(Perhaps he'd told her about his dream with Laura revealing her killer, at some point? Or maybe she was referencing her dreams/prayers while trapped in One-Eyed Jack's that Coop would rescue her.)

All this build up to Audrey, with the earlier scenes with Frank and Ben almost tantalizingly dancing around naming Richard's mother, not to mention all the buildup for leaving her off the screen, then she abruptly appears in a surely intentionally jarring smash cut mid pan. We learn she's in a loveless marriage to a dwarf and is having an affair with a missing man named Billy, and there's a long extended conversation where a bunch of names were dropped, none of which were Richard, while Audrey impatiently waits for some information she never receives. If you place Audrey in the role of the audience impatient with all of this it is truly comedy gold.


It was the theme of the entire episode. Did anyone else keep waiting for Ben to hand the key to Frank??


Yes! After Sheriff Truman mentioned the investigation involving Cooper, it was like he was reluctant to give it to him.

Before tonight I actually thought they might cut Fenn out of the series completely.

I really don't see how this show is gonna rap up I'm 6 more parts. Especially at the rate it's moving. There are way to many storylines that are just kinda sitting there. I'm gonna be really disappointed if we have a bunch of in answered questions. Some questions left unsanswered is fine because it's Lynch lol. I really want to imagine we're gonna see old Coop back in action but I think that's not gonna happen. I can't believe it's almost over.

Guess my take is pretty much the same...most of the first half was pretty riveting (esp. the Sarah Palmer stuff) and the rest just spiraled into deliberate obscurity.

I took some of this as "Lynch f***ing with the audience" as well. My question is, isn't it getting a little late in the game for that excuse to be popping up so much? Messing with the audience might be fun, but it hardly makes for good and satisfying art. I've enjoyed most of this so far, but somewhere in the back of my mind the warning bells are sounding that we might already know as much as we're ever going to know about any of these storylines.

Yeah, that entire sequence was poor on every level.

Not if the entire show is constructed that way.
