"Nadine, Ed & Norma didn't really have a backstory before now"
"Lana being the winner of the Miss Twin Peaks contest"
Do you think these comments are all part of his "plan"?
I Don´t Know if Frost will have a plan or not, ( I am sure yes), but all this errors continuity are Deliberated !!
Or you think that if you ask for all these errors frost will tell the truth?
A normal writer does not make this type of failure, much less Frost. one thing is that you forget one or two dates, and another is to change almost everything.
I guess it depends on what we mean by deliberate. I'm sure not all the changes are "mistakes", meaning he just didn't know the original details (although I think some are).
But there are two ways the continuity problems can be deliberate:
1. Some complicated reason that will come out later in S3 or Volume 2 that shows these are not really errors.
2. Frost knew the details but just felt like changing them and wasn't really that concerned with things lining up correctly.
Either of these could be true.
3. Not even the show was consistent with itself. Bug is now feature.
Honestly, at this point, in my wildest dreams, s3 will make offhanded references to YET ANOTHER set of details, sometimes confirming past versions of canon, sometimes steamrolling them, and YOLO.
ETA I am fully aware this is an unpopular opinion, I'll stop now. As soon as I don't have work, though, I'd like to compile a list of old canon details TSHOTP definitely adhered to, divided by source. Off the top of my head, the Access Guide got preferential treatment, but Lana's thing was there almost verbatim and I think the book shows a clearer grasp on the Packard subplot than the average TP nerd possesses.
