Invitation to love

Post by Shelly_Johnson »

something ive been pondering....

Jade and Emerald are direct oppisite's of each other...one is sweet and kind the other seams to be bold and cunning.

perhaps a mirror image of the two different Laura's with in herself?

any thoughts?

Yes, it's deliberate -and quite brilliant. Everything in Twin Peaks is about the visual, and it knows it's a serial television show -so it is exploiting and twisting those conventions -granted, at the same time while winking at this setup also drawing us in and caring about these characters.

The Jade/Emerald introduction (that they are played by the same actress) is announced on the show the same moment when Maddy is introduced (the Leland scene) -an obivous wink.
