  1. @Schnapple I'm sure you are right and there's a reason Bad Coop doesn't just confront Dougie. But at this point, balancing an anvil on top of a door would be a more effective way of dealing with him, and it would sure simplify the plot a bunch. Something tells me that roadrunner gag would appeal to Lynch too. Kyle is doing a great job with Bad Coop and Dougie though. What an amazing face, and, it turns out, body too.
  2. Another layer of hit men will be coming for Dougie then? Is that going to be the 5th set?? Omg, move it on please. We now have these people who have at one time been after Dougie: Faraday from Lost, who he owed gambling debts to. The first round of hitman sent by Lorraine, through Duncan Todd, by Bad Coop. Ike the Spike sent by Duncan Todd through Bad Coop. And the ones still to come: I'm assuming Duncan Todd and Dougie are the double header Bad Coop asked Hutch to do(after the warden of course). He says it's in Vegas. And now the Casino brothers are after him too. Again, this is Duncan Todd's doing, who seems to work for Bad Coop. I have no idea what Bad Coop is up too. Why not just get on a bus and go kill him yourself? I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why they wrote it this way. Why make something so simple feel so complex? Having all these characters doing essentially the same thing dilutes all of them. Is it just meant to show us that Dougie radiates good fortune and can survive anything? Luckily the cops, casino guys and Dougie are all entertaining to watch. Otherwise this would be really hard going. I'm wondering if this would be better if it was all set in one location. Then the characters could be involved in multiple plot lines. I wish the Vegas cops, the buckhorn cops, and the new twin peaks cops were the same. Duncan Todd and Red could be one character. Ike the spike and Richard Horne could be the same person. I don't know. These are silly ideas when we haven't seen the whole show. But at this point, I wish they had collapsed the cast somewhat.
  3. Great post TurboPubx-16 , you nailed it I think. There was so much complexity in the relationships between Laura/Leland/Coop, that is removed now its just a cosmic fight between forces from outside earth. The human characters might as well not exist at all. It explains away their behavior with a wave of the hand. It was never their fault! They were puppets! David Foster Wallace wrote that Lynch's characters seemed to wear evil, rather than actually being it. I guess that's the interpretation we have to apply to all of Twin Peaks characters now too. Lynch has a history of these kind of stories though. What is Frank Booth except a pure symbol of evil. There's not a lot of complexity in that character. However, Blue Velvet is saved by having Jeffory. A character who is wavering on the edge of goodness/darkness. Jeffory's facination with Frank is what makes that movie so interesting. No-one is conflicted in Twin Peaks. We have amazing visuals, with a shallow story. Kinds like a CG Super hero blockbuster. Its a really dull vision of good and evil. I really hope this turns around and I'm proved wrong.
  4. How Ray got the drop on evil coop is a real mystery to me. It seems weird that the warden got Ray to do it since Evil Coop makes it clear if he dies, the info he has on him will get out. He also suggests he sent the other dog legs to people who will visit the warden in the event he dies. But then the gun in the glovebox isn't loaded..... So he must be involved??? But also, Ray has a contract to kill Evil Coop right? That's the reason Evil Coop killed Darya. She tells him her and Ray would split half a million once the job is done. I guess that's the money they are talking about. All this stuff seems needlessly convoluted. There's endless layers to all the hitman stuff, and it doesn't seem to be in service of anything interesting yet. Sadly I'm hating the lore they are introducing. The lodges were only interesting to me when they were telling me things about the characters. I loved BOB in relation to Leland's desire for his daughter, or as Laura's attempt to shield herself from the truth about her dad. I loved the lodges as a bursting of the dams of all the guilt, betrayal evil and goodness in the town. Created by the characters. Manifested into reality. So instead, BOB birthed from "mother" during an atomic blast. What does that tell me about the characters or the nature of evil? Or anything at all? I guess it says "atomic bombs are bad!!!!". The beauty of many of the images doesn't really make me feel better about this. I hope I'm missing something here!!! I've loved almost everything so far. If this does turn out to be great in the end, they are telling the story in the wrong order.
