Remember when Sarah was in the supermarket and she said ''men are coming''. I think after that the Woodsmen went to Sarah's house to perform some ritual to allow for Judy to be conveyed through her. They needed Judy there and then in Twin Peaks because of events about to unfold. Note how everything has changed about Sarah when Hawk visits her at her house; her expression etc. He hears a sound and asks Sarah if there is someone there, which could be the woodsmen.
Also note how the jumping man rushes down when Cooper is heading to change the past. He is rushing to tell Judy about the events unfolding.
Pure speculation of course, and definitely not my ''final'' take on things. But I sure like to look at it that way.
I love reading thought out takes of S3 that follow logically and are based on what we're shown and don't go out into the weeds too much. This feels pretty accurate to me. I've not read much like that about the C/Jeffries/Briggs storyline and I was wondering about your - and anyone else's, really - take on it. Like, what was actually going on between C and 'Jeffries' with the encrypted comms, Buenos Aires and the attic room, Briggs appearances to Bill Hastings, etc. Maybe we're given enough to intuit the rest but it doesn't feel like it to me, and it's hard to know if it's because there's something there we haven't picked up on or if it's because Lynch and Frost didn't pay all that much attention to the logistics of the plot in these places, because it wasn't deemed important enough to the story and broad strokes would suffice.
Was C ever communicating with the real Jeffries through the briefcase gear? Was the switch recent? If he was in contact regarding the search for Judy, how come he'd made so little progress in 25 years? The building of a criminal empire fits with C's lusting for power but unless it was a necessary step in funding the Manhattan box project, it feels like C's time would have been better spent knocking around Twin Peaks searching for Judy.
I know there are going to be holes in my attempt to find holes, but I can't help shake the sense that if you were somehow able to pull up Lynch or Frost and get them to explain how that whole arc works, they wouldn't have that much of an idea themselves. Which is fine, because maybe it wasn't seen as that important in their eyes in view of the whole thing. I loved it when the show finally got a chance to world-build, but none of that stuff really got the chance to lock in, for me, because not much of it made plot sense.
