Just trying to stay concise. A lot to unpack here. As I mentioned a few posts ago, maybe all the Roadhouse scenes are from a parallel story, whether Audrey's or someone eleses.
Some of them must be real, such as James and Freddie's trouble with Renee's husband and friend. That had consequences which go outside the Roadhouse.
One common theme, running through all of the Roadhouse scenes that I can recall, is that nothing good ever happens in them. It's always filled with troubled people of all sorts. The notable exception was James' "Just You" performance and that one almost certainly wasn't real, much like Audrey's dance. I am still on the fence whether Freddie is real or a projection of James' mind. We will find out in just a few days. It's going to be difficult to watch that final installment, knowing that this is the end.
Freddie seems like he has to be real given that he was arrested for the fight, unless he's a tulpa too.
As for the Roadhouse scenes, I tend to think that they were real up until Audrey's in the most recent episode. What's puzzling about that is that if Audrey really has been out of it (whether comatose, delusional, or in the Lodges) ever since the bank explosion, that doesn't fit with the appearance of the MC and at least one of the crowd extras who have been in other Roadhouse scenes, because she wouldn't even know of them. OTOH, it's questionable as to how she'd know of "Just You" if that scene was taking place in her mind too, since we don't know of James ever playing it for anybody but Donna and Maddie. Unless multiple TP residents are having Roadhouse dreams/hallucinations?
If this were Lost Highway or Mulholland Drive, I could accept these puzzle-pieces-that-don't-quite-fit as just Lynchian dream logic and not try to figure it out past that, but Twin Peaks has always had a more linear, literal narrative structure even when the content of the narrative has turned pretty bizarre.
