Season 3 Opening scene speculation (NO SPOILERS)

Postby Garmonbozia1996 » Tue May 09, 2017 11:57 am

Hi I have been a long time lurker on the forums for a while, and thought now would be a good time to get involved. I thought it would be fun to speculate on what the opening scenes of the the new series would entail.

Wishfull thinking but I feel like we will again be following Coop in the lodge for at least 10/15 minutes before his eventual escape into Glastonbury Grove. However another distinct possibility could be having a character, possibly Bob/Evil Coop or a new cast member looking into a mirror directly emulating the opening moments of the pilot, the ending and establishing that ever present theme of duality.

Wondering what you lot would suggest ?

A recreation of Cooper's dream would be amazing, if MJA wasn't an asshole. They could always use the original one, of course.
This is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee.

Mist, trees, night and two parallel light-cones from the headlights of an old Mercedes tracking a winding road. Lots and lots of Douglas Firs, so many that you could almost smell them from your screen. Then slowly from the darkness the camera zooms into the car and reveals that Cooper occupies the driver seat and next to him sits a blonde. Later we learn that her name is Diane ... Is this a return, are they on the run, is it a kidnap maybe?

I also think some kind of long, winding road. In the dark, of course.

I really liked the idea someone else on this forum (I don't remember who) brought up in another topic: it would be wonderful to open this show with a new Log Lady intro. This would be the one and only Log Lady introduction we get, because the new series is considered as a one long movie vs. the old series consisting of 29/30 episodes. This could also serve as a farewell to that beloved character and actor.

Something like: "Hello again. And welcome to Twin Peaks. My name is Margaret Lanterman. I live in Twin Peaks. There was a time when I was also known as the Log Lady. Time. Is time really comprehendable to humans? Is there always a start and an end? Some say Laura Palmer's life ended on February 24th 1989. Was it merely the end or the beginning of something greater?

Open your senses. My log has a messege for you."


[/the end of bad Log Lady fanfic]

This would also be possible because we know late mrs. Coulson's condition when filming. Filming one intro alone with David + skeleton crew wouldn't be too exhausting.

I'd love to see this.

I think you may be more right than either of us know.
The Return is clearly guaranteed a future audience among stoners and other drug users.

Yeah, that was me. It does seem like the most plausible way to include her, given her health, timing of her death, etc. As for the first proper scene, I've daydreamed about Laura Palmer's diary turning up at some kind of creepy serial killer memorabilia swap meet, someone seeing "The good Dale is in the Lodge and he can't get out" scribbled in it, and that kicking off the whole thing.

I really do wonder how Annie's message in Laura's diary is going to turn up. Leland tore up/destroyed pages, and the police found the secret diary in Harold's possession. Where is the page saying that "the good Dale is in the Lodge"? Maybe Harold mailed it to someone, maybe a Judy. Maybe Sara found a crumpled up page of it, and it ended up being the backside of a grocery list.

I could almost see this starting, a la FWWM, somewhere outside Twin Peaks with characters we haven't seen before. Just when we're collectively about to scream 'What has this got to do with Twin Peaks?!?' at our sets, *those* notes kick in and we're off...

personally i think it's a blessing in disguise that MJA and BOB can't appear in the shape of their original actors for this new series.. aging Lodge inhabitants would just be wrong for me.

I think the opening will be tailored to suit new viewers, so it won't reference the old series at all. That means I can't predict at all what it is!

A possible starting plot would be a manhunt for a vicious killer who turns out to be bad Coop, meaning that the series would start nowhere near Twin Peaks. Then it slowly winds back to Twin Peaks.

It will be hilarious reading this thread after we've seen the first episode :-D
