For the first time I see the potential meta-textual element of Cooper looking back at Laura, and in so doing, losing her -- as if Lynch and Frost have performed the same action.

It's interesting to think about certain scenes from Season 3 in this context. I wonder if the journey is more about when Lynch/Frost lost Laura when the original run was canceled - that Season 3 was always about finding Laura again and returning "home" or at the point where the story first began. The scene that really sticks out to me is in Episode 17 when Cooper returns to a scene from FWWM, which is Laura's story, to "find her." Then as he tells her he's taking her "home," she's ripped away from his hand. There's also Leland's "find Laura," Laura being ripped out of the Red Room - even Audrey's questions to Charlie about what story she's in, being confused about who and where she is, her fixation on "finding" Billy - it seems like so much of the show had characters disoriented, lost, or in search of something - the Log Lady's message to Hawk that he "missed something" and they were missing pages of Laura's diary - so much of it seems like a metaphor for Lynch/Frost losing Laura and finding her again, but recognizing that what's done is done, and no matter how many different incarnations of Twin Peaks there are, the story will always end where it began.

That's definitely how I've come to characterize the Audrey story-line. She almost seems to be challenging the show, attempting to become the main character, which hearkens back to her near death experience trying to uncover Laura's traces in the original seasons. Except this time, in a season whose avant-garde qualities have included more characters than ever in its strange realms, Audrey is almost punished, it seems, pushing the envelope too far when she literally tries to take center stage. However I feel there's something optimistic about her snapping to the white room--it can only be a good thing, considering the terror she just escaped. Perhaps the white room is transcendence from the bounds of the narrative she found herself confused inside? Whereas Cooper sinks so deep he dives into the darkest territory.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.

I believe all these phenomena that our putted-up egos and busy ant minds persist in trying to label, categorize, penetrate, and comphrehend, all spring from this same uncanny source. This is the mother of all "others".

“If you had a beautiful place like this, you’d have to have a way to get up here and catch that big trout that lives in there.”

In other words, catching the big...trout. (Failing that, perhaps twelve smaller rainbow trout.)
