3. Audrey's story (including presumably Richard and Charlie)
6. Ed/Norma and Norma's Pies
7. Dr. Amp/Nadine
In addition, we also have yet to find out the fates of the following characters who do not appear this season: Annie, Leo and Donna
Do you think we can get resolution to all this in 4 hours? Or will we have to wait for Frost's book to get some of the final answers? Am I missing anything?
I think a lot of those subplots could be finished with only a scene or two...and I think the whole Norma/Ed thing doesn't necessarily need anything more than what we've seen. Norma is in a relationship with some quy who wants to change the way she makes her delicious pies (which is why we don't like him), while Ed is still alone and sad.
Also, I don't think we'll ever know what happened to Donna and Leo, but if Lynch/Frost really want to give us something, a sentence would be enough.
Long story short, I think there's still enough time.
I generally agree. I mean, I honestly don't really care that much about most of them, they seem to be peripheral.
The exception would be Red and how he affects the town and Bobby and Shelly. It seems to me there has to be a confrontation building in that storyline and I am surprised we have not seen more of it up until now.
It could be that the real focus of the show is the Return of Cooper (and Laura, perhaps). We see snap shots of life in Twin Peaks, seeing that it's just as terrible as it ever was (and, in some instances worse), but unless they're important to the main plot, there's no reason to resolve them to a point of completion.
It does make me wonder about what stuff we've already been shown though. Jerry spent many episodes lost in the woods. Although I assumed he'd escaped back to civilisation, what did that whole subplot tell us?
I assume we'll find out more about Red, as he seems to be connected to characters that otherwise seem important (significantly Shelly, but specifically Richard, who may/may not be connected to Mr C, and who Cooper was told was important in episode 1).
Season 2 ended on a lot of cliffhangers. I wonder if any of these loose ends will lead to similar unresolved cliffhangers (with the suggestion that they could be resolved by a fourth series, if the network decides it wants one - or in the Final Dossier book).
