  1. Another really good one. I can not imagine what it must have been like for Catherine Coulson to utter the words "I am dying" like that. Ever since people here have talked about the some of the (white?) lodge's imagery feeling similar to Amanita Design's games, I couldn't help but see a little man standing on the base of the spout of the Jefferies' kettle. I do wonder if Dougie's electrocution means he is going to receive the message from the Fireman from the very first scene of The Return. God, he felt like he was back!!
  2. Kinda surprised about all the disappoint from this episode. Quite enjoyed this one. I liked Tammy's initiation into the Blue Rose club. Tammy and the Blue Rose has me thinking that she'll meet a tragic end. Also, that this places Secret History of Twin Peaks at around this point in the chronology of the show, presumably. I also really liked how much the french lady ate up her exit, (I've absolutely resigned myself to the women of Twin Peaks playing too small a role in the story). I did like how incomprehensible Audrey's scene was. It felt like a return to Invitation to Love that I had skipped out on for a few a seasons, with the addition of coarse language from our beloved Audrey. Which is why I find that to be an interesting take. Because I feel like Audrey's reintroduction to the show felt like she had never been gone, like literally, she felt exactly the same as she did in the original run. She had that same air of a young woman who pushed for what she want even she wasn't necessarily capable or experienced enough to do that. I'm not sure of Sherilyn Fenn's acting chops outside of Twin Peaks, but I really got the feel that not much has changed for her (she certainly isn't a lady agent). But to the actual episode, is she actually Richard's mother?!?! Why hasn't she been around? And Ben's musing over Richard not having a father, and then losing himself in a touching moment about his own father.
  3. I did the exact same thing a few of you have done with the "gym set" conversation. And reading people's ideas for how hypothetical conversations with Dougie give me such a wholesome warm feeling. I love it so much. Nothing else to add that hasn't already been covered. Good ep, good pod, good lord I'm sure it was a band-aid.
  4. Bobby's always been cool.
  5. @Phlogiston4lyfe, I'm trying to remember what was said about the bad drugs, did Red(?) cut something into it? I punched the air as soon as Gordon Cole said Cooper's flown the coop. I wanted that to be said so bad! Also really liked Albert and Constance back and forth. The only thing I gleaned from the recordings on Bill Hastings glorious, Notepad coded website was a "help" found in the vortex.wav at 19 seconds. Sounded a little like Coop, but can't remember when he did that. Unless that hasn't happened yet.
  6. That's actually a pretty good read on the Laura Orb,@Gailbraithe. As much as I love the Giant being a good guy with his clues and his seemingly sincere sadness when Maddie was murdered, I much prefer ambiguity. Using Laura as a lure for BOB is something that retains the culpability of Leland and the strength of Laura.
  7. I'm sorry, I'm sorry for my previous attempts at speculation, I won't do it again. Anywho... Are we split on who/what the #frogroach is? ( @KaiserAullirio) I assumed it was BOB as a literal familiar as MIKE has called him during the original run. Man, that episode, loved it. I agree that there is a intentional holding out against giving us what we want. I want Coop back. But I can't stare into the void that this show presents and ask for all my ducks to be in a row. Although I agree, @Demimonde, the A-bomb representing some focal point for evil to come through, is a little on the nose. There are a lot men like Richard Horne out there.
  8. Rewatched the episode last night and can't help but think that Diane feels absolutely let down by Gordon and the FBI. I like what you had to say to back up your not sexual assault Gailbraithe, and I really hope that that is the case. Because an honest, falling out between 2 people will serve to develop Diane much better as we go back and read between the lines of all of Dale's tapes to her. I don't know how I feel about EvilCoop being the billionaire benefactor of the glass box operation. But the evolution of the arm seems more and more to me to be the brain and nervous system regrowing (ie: the Arm being able to manifest themselves in the physical world). And man, did the creepy monster in the box in the first episode look like the Arm's weird tree face. EvilCoop setting up an elaborate operation to contain the Arm who appears to be the most antagonistic towards to BOB and his previous theft of the garmonbozia, isn't a ridiculous idea (just the Lost-iest). And the Arm compelling DougieCoop to "squeeze his hand off" could be establishing a more involved partnership in the coming episodes. That would explain why GoodCoop was "caught" by the glass box as he was ejected(?) from the Red Room.
  9. Jake, I bet you ate up two older gentlemen exchanging Skype handles and a computer monitor embedded in a desk. So tar hobo, that's the name we've got? I can roll with that. I figured it was him walking down the hall out of focus, and it really freaked me out. I loved it! No-good Renaults still doing their part to keep the trade going. *Laura Dern was really good, "what's your name?" *Of course, loved bad-ass Coop This is going to need a rewatch.
  10. I do wonder what ties Audrey back into the show though.
  11. Oh that was unnerving. Cooper's dialogue was modified in such a way that really made me feel like they were talking to a possessed man. And the bit with Cole's hearing aid was really good. They don't seem to playing it for laughs very much though. I thought the woman that they were talking about was Sarah Palmer since she was connected to Dale in the Black Lodge in the finale.
  12. My partner and I were like, "is that Jacque??" Oh boy did I scoff when Shelley said that about James. Why does she even an opinion about him? Kid below her in high school.... Oh no Lynch, you can't convince me that he's cool.
  13. The Log Lady hit me really hard as well. I'm not aware of what state she was in during the filming. But the oxygen, the rapport with Hawk and her glassy eyes really got to me. Watched 3 episodes tonight, and also finding hard to recall where each "episode" started and stopped. Calling them episode really doesn't feel right. I felt really relieved that doppelgänger Dale hasn't flown under the radar at the FBI, and seemingly just went AWOL as soon as he got out of the Lodge.
  14. My take on everything in these trailers, and the omnipresent "It is happening again" in all the marketing, is a Twin Peaks that hasn't moved on, that hasn't learnt anything as a community about the death of Laura Palmer. Then a thought popped in my head of seeing Lucy watch reruns of Invitation to Love, stuck in that same lobby of the Sheriff's department. I am scared/excited that we are getting 18 hours of Fire Walk With Me that was discussed in the cast.
  15. I was really excited for the cast to come back, refreshing my podcast app constantly last night. I was disappointed you two decided against the spoiler music jingle for Audrey's fate. Agreed with your sentiments on the book Jake. Hawk's reading (and Michael Horse's narration in the audiobook) of Norma, Big Ed and Hank's life was the high point of the Secret History of Twin Peaks. But ultimately I felt like the book told us too much and nothing at all about the mythology of Twin Peaks. I quite liked how it prodded around what happened to the Log Lady as a child, but really didn't like extending Twin Peaks lore to every corner of the globe. I enjoyed Something True's retelling of Jack Parsons's attempt to summon a demon far more than this book's version. Edit: I will say actually was really into the conceit of the Archivist and even the slight teasing of Tamara Preston (TP) from the season 3 in the Secret History.
