No no no no NO NO NO!!!!!!
while I agree they can do that now I do NOT like this news at all. his sounds like a band aid, a quick fix to any actors they cant get to appear and to me it is extremely lazy to let us know the resolutions to the cliffhangers we saw on tv in novel form. he show should be the first time we see these people again. with Frank silva dead and Michael Anderson hedging his bets I get the feeling this book will just be an excuse to write out people and to create new characters they will use on the show.
For all we know the Cooper cliffhanger will be resolved in the novel and the show that airs may be nothing like what we were left with as a cliffhanger on the series. his is actually infuriating to me. I have always seen novels to mythology shows like X-Files and star wars to be a cheap way to fan service people without having to put the work in.
what happens if the Lodge mystery gets wrapped up in the book, Cooper is rescued and when the showtime series airs it involves an all new Lodge. what if we never get to SEE the resolution we waited 25 years for. I want to know if Ben lived, if Audrey lived. If Leo ever made it out. But I want to know these things on the show as it progresses, not in some cheap novel.
Im sorry if I sound like a dick or a downer, but I am NO impressed by this news at all. It is lazy and not what we deserve.
I seriously doubt any major story threads like Coop in the lodge will be resolved in the novel. I also doubt there will be any compulsory exposition in the novel as Lynch, Frost and Showtime will be well aware that the majority of viewers of the third season will have seen the series and film but NOT read the book. I would be surprised if the purpose of this novel was to do anything other than augment what we see in the new season, and fill in details on narrative threads they won't have time for. Your reaction is understandable if all the things you are concerned about may happen but I'd put the odds on any of these worries coming to fruition at nil.
