  1. I absolutely concur. To me, that was as profound an ending for this journey as any Lynch could have manufactured. To end with a clearly stated question (What year is this?) keeps you searching the content and context for the possible answer. That is the foundation of Twin Peaks. Loved this season, and those final 2 episodes were spectacular!!! And remember, there were 2 Chalfonts. "What was the name of the people who rented this trailor? Chalfont. As a matter of fact Chalfont was the name of the people that rented this space before. Two Chalfonts." Is it future or is it past? The past dictates the future. Indeed it does Mr. Lynch.
  2. I'm loving the season and enjoying the posts. Much insight and many ideas on meanings. Almost more entertaining than the show itself (?) This episode is in the top 5 of the entire series for me. Lots of thoughts on how the imagery and particular plot points connect dots from TP history. I sometimes cringe at how much over-analysis goes on in the search for meaning. As the years have passed (with many rewatches), I interpret the show to be telling a very simple story on the balance of good and bad in the world. Twin Peaks is the microcosm of that, albeit with some highly exaggerated characters and bizarre plot propulsion techniques. The inclusion of "Invitation To Love" is the only thing I need to understand about all the craziness in between the reveals. Twin Peaks is nothing more than a weird kaleidoscope of the fight for balance. Yin. Yang. Black. White. But then there is that pesky color Red (the curtains in the lodge, Audrey's shoes, the door to Dougie's house, the door to the hotel room that leads to Phillip Jeffries.). Red expresses love, passion, desire. It energizes our physical form. It can also mean anger and aggression. In the most ancient fashion, red stands for Fire. I find it intentional that the scenes in The Return that have focused on the lodge (and the origins) have been in black AND white. Mix of good and bad. All the characters from the lodges have entered the world of Twin Peaks enter through a Red door (or curtain). What does it mean? God Damn it! Judy (Garland) wore red shoes to get home in the Wizard of Oz. Judy!
  3. The Andy / Fireman scene: This was a time lapse of images representing Past/Present/Future. Past = Woodsmen/Convenience Store/Laura Palmer's death, etc. Present = Nido being found in the woods Future = phone call(?), leading Lucy to a "reveal" of some sort? This is obviously all out of sequence, but that's the point I believe. Leading to the storyline of the green glove guy. The Fireman revealed answers to him, more succinctly and apparently in spoken form (buy the glove, fly to Twin Peaks). Will be interesting to see where Andy's new found confidence leads him. My theory = Andy becomes central to sleuthing the reveal of good Coop / bad Coop. Is able to accurately identify the difference, and saves the good Coop from "elimination". The bumbling deputy finally becomes a "real" law enforcer. We saw a glimpse of this when he shot Jacque to save Sheriff Truman (Season 1).
  4. I'm not letting go of the theme that the mythology of TP is based on the premise of every action contains an equal and opposite reaction. This couldn't be more evident than in the Andy/Lucy chair scene. Andy succumbs to Lucy's request for the brown chair which gets him the red chair he desired. Bob is captured, Laura is released. Black and white. Don't over-analyze. The story will align with a balance between good and bad.
  5. That is probably very close to the truth. Nice!
  6. The frog bug crawling into the girl's mouth, the foot lingering like a hand waving out of the darkness, then disappearing.... Bob's hand emerging from the darkness at Glastonbury Grove, episode 28. That bug is Bob.
  7. Example: Bad Coop's gun doesn't fire. An opposite reaction to the bullet he fired into Darya, or countless other victims?
  8. Great observation. I bet you're right.
  9. Well, that was interesting. For me, this episode represents the point of no return for the TP franchise. Viewers are now connected to a larger commercial & cultural mystery vs. the tailored mystique of our quiet little town. Personally, I think this shift to larger conspiracy theories (aliens, Roswell, Area 51 type stuff) significantly degrades the ethos and pathos that makes Twin Peaks special. Lynch/Frost are moving us from granular (small town) to cosmic at a deliberate pace (slow or fast depending on perspective). As a participant in this 25 year story line, I feel I must now decide if I really want to know what the machine behind the curtain is doing, where it came from, and what it's motivations are. Sure, I'm interested. But I think I'd rather not know in full detail how the "sausage gets made". I know the product is bad for me, but let me enjoy the experience without connecting ALL the dots. The Return (and episode 8 in particular) confirm for me that TP is a vehicle for telling the moral of reincarnation. We are, and are all surrounded by, energy changing form. Energy burns bright and ascends. Energy burns out and descends. Every action contains energy which has an equal and opposite reaction. Light/Dark - the black & white floor of the red room. Bob, Dad - same forwards as backwards, equal AND opposite. Major characters in TP having duplicate versions of themselves appear in the plot (think Maddy, Catherine Martel and Mr. Tojamura, Ben Horne as a crooked businessman and a tree hugger, Leland with dark hair and white hair.... the list goes on). I'm too invested to stop, but I'm going to drift to the finish line on this. I really want to be sprinting.
