There are two different stories on Piper and I'll leave it at that.

Yep, that’s what makes me curious. But we’re not gonna talk about Piper at all.

I would have killed to see her, as Catherine is a favorite of mine. I think it was likely just a question of scheduling, space and timing. Sadly unless a fourth season is mounted quickly I think the moment for Catherine is gone. I'll assume she's still out scheming in her Blue Pine compound - was that where it was?

I don't know what the Piper Season 3 stories are but I always wondered if, as an "old school" type of actress from back in the day, who won a Golden Globe Award for Twin Peaks and got Emmy nominations... I figured she had her representatives ask for more money, and wanted to hold out for more money (just out of the principle of it) and then they just wrote her out because they weren't going to start playing favorites that way. Just a thought! Can't imagine they wrote a big arc for her anyway.

Yep, Blue Pine Lodge. She’s a favorite of mine, too. Just one scene between her and Benjamin would have put me over the moon.

It’s interesting that, unlike many other characters absent from the show, Catherine is sidelined even in Mark’s books — apparently becoming a recluse shortly after Pete’s death and not heard from since. I wonder why she didn’t even merit a mention in TFD, whereas Lana and Ernie Niles got long elaborate epilogues.

I highly doubt they only offered Audrey one scene. Obviously I don't know for sure, but I can't see it.

Until we hear otherwise, my guess is that she wanted scenes that dealt with Audrey's feelings, life, spirit, turmoil, etc. and was not happy to be one part of a large canvas where the issues in her scenes were basically to respond to her violent, dirtbag kid.


Sherilyn Fenn definitely wanted feelings, life, spirit and turmoil in the character of Audrey Horne but instead she got a script for season 3. If you regard this season as the 'doppleganger' season of Twin Peaks then it is devoid of spirit, life and a lot of emotion (not all of course) - so I think Fenn was bound to be in the disappointed camp.

I love your words here bosguy1981. If anyone can tell me a character who has a resolved or 'satisfying' character arc in season 3, then I'd like to hear. Frost and Lynch went out of their way to make every character confusing, incomplete and 'stuck' pretty much. With the exception perhaps of Nadine, Jacoby, Big Ed and Norma. I think the Black Lodge has its influence all over events during this season, but those four characters somehow seem able to dig themselves out of the shit!

Audrey Horne wrote:I do think they reached out to Boyle, and believed they reached out to most of the actors to first see if they wanted to come on board and that the pay would not be much and their shooting schedule would probably only be a few weeks tops for all of them. But I don’t know if she ever went in and read the pages they wrote, or if it never got that far and they never had to write anything for the character. From what I was told, once an actor said they were in, they came into an office and were given just their pages to read privately and asked how they liked it.


Yeah, I forgot about how they didn't "send" the scenes to the actors. They were required to go to an office in Los Angeles to read them. Makes you wonder if Michael Ontkean (who lives in Hawaii) ever got to read his scenes before deciding not to do it.
