  1. On the podcast Chris mentioned that there's a one armed man that shows up in the Ike/Dougie segment, but the guy clearly has two arms earlier and later in the scene, his jacket being blown open by the wind just obscures his arm briefly at one point. I get that with a show like this, where basically absolutely anything is feasible, it can be easy to pick up on something someone somewhere on the internet says and just take it as fact and assume you missed it because you weren't watching carefully enough, but some of the things getting thrown out there on the podcast are a little dubious. There's already so many insane plot holes that actually a part of the show that it's frustrating to have to go and sift through a whole additional layer of internet rumour mongering every week. I don't mean that as a criticism aimed specifically at Chris and Jake, and it's not even something that's particular to Twin Peaks, but with other shows I at least feel that rumour mongering/theorycrafting takes place within a much more intentionally structured drip feed of information, whereas the plotting and pacing of this season are so all over the place, basically anything goes and is unlikely to ever be directly addressed or disproven within the show. If you'll allow me to be histrionic for a moment, there's that Jonathan Swift quote that goes "Falsehood flies, and truth comes limping after it, so that when men come to be undeceived, it is too late; the jest is over, and the tale hath had its effect", and I feel like a lot of my time discussing this season has been spent mopping up other people's suspect theories. Someone comes up with an interpretation but doesn't bother properly investigating it, and then sends it in to the podcast where it's read out and just assumed to be fact. We really do need Cooper and his investigative rigour back.
  2. On the subject of tar hobos: I went back and looked, and the hobo in this episode appears to be different than the previous one in Episode 2. I wonder if there's any significance to the fact the the tar hobo in this episode walks into frame just as Lieutenant Knox says "What I mean is his head is not here, it's missing", given Episode 1's hobo's floating head. The character and actor aren't listed in either of the episode credits, and, to my knowledge, these are the only characters that haven't been listed (hell, even the weird creature in the box is credited as "Experiment Model"). The character from FWWM that Sarah mentioned above is credited as "Woodsman" and is played by Jürgen Prochnow (Duke Leto Atreides in Dune), who, as far as we know, has not been cast in this season. The character from Episode 1 was actually brought up in a recent interview with Lynch (I believe it's this one), and Lynch says something to the effect of "keep an eye out for him", so I wonder if this is what he meant.
  3. If you look closely as he drops the gun, you can see that it does indeed come from Ike's hand
