Christ, that is just some vintage Twin Peaks weird. Love it. 

 

And just to add, this season being a loving farewell to Miguel Ferrer as well as Catherine Coulson is just awesome. 

 

Bonus: Shamelessly stolen from Reddit.

Ran across this on Alan Sepinwall's recap. Amusing:

People of Facebook would fall for that one every time!

I thought the 'She' they were referring to was Diane. Or Sarah Palmer, given that she's one of the few characters that can see BOB. I know people mention Audrey, but it seems weird that Albert or Cole would consider Audrey since in the time of show he's only known her for about a month. 

post #956 of 2333


Wonder what she looks like after the bomb blast...gorgeous still, but missing an ARM?

 

(edit)...also, anyone notice Ruth Davenport​'s neighbor who calls the cops tells them she has a key to 'water her plants'...we didn't get an overall view of the place, but I certainly didn't see anything leafy...Probably nothing.

From what I read, two tonight, then starting next week only one a week from there on out.

I'm a spoiled brat for being up in arms for waiting another week.

Shelly's taste in men has always been...questionable though. So it fits in line with her character. 

 

Also, goddamn Madchen Amick still looks utterly fantastic.

It's probably for the best. I'm disappointed not to be getting a new one on Sunday, but I think the benefits outweigh the negatives, especially when it comes to discussions here, which can be unified after that point.

 

(That said, it's gonna be the all-time Sophie's Choice of Television™ next week -- a brand-new episode of Twin Peaks, or the final episode of The Leftovers.)

post #962 of 2333

More SPOILERY and crazy ideas and guesses and crap from me...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I wonder if Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn) will return as some sort of movie star coming back to her hometown.  I've read in a few places about how some of the first concepts for MULHOLLAND DRIVE - back when it was conceived as a television pilot - were as a PEAKS spin-off in which Audrey went off to Los Angeles to pursue acting.  It'd be interesting to see if that played out.

 

On Hawk's second conversation with The Log Lady as he's walking through the woods, she asks where he's walking at that moment.  He says "Once again your Log and I are on the same page. There's supposed to be something happening here tonight."  She warns him that "a time presents itself" and to "watch carefully."  When he happens across Glastonbury Grove at the circle of trees, it seems he actually sees the Red Room's curtains fading in and out.  But the next time we see him it's all business as usual with Andy, Lucy and the conference room.  First:  How did he know that there was "supposed to be something happening" out in the woods, and you'd think seeing red curtains materialize in front of you out of nowhere would have more of an effect on a man who's already aware of the spirits and lodges.

 

In the Second Hour, the "Floating Head Man In Black in the Jail Cell" appears and disappears.  I've read here and elsewhere that this might be Major Briggs (Don S. Davis).  Makes a good guess, as the character looks as if he'd been burnt somehow, and Briggs is said to have died in a fire at his Station (which we know all about from the Secret History book).  But...  Don S. Davis is not listed in the credits in that particular episode.  He is however listed in the credits for the Third Hour of the show and as Major Briggs.  We don't see Major Briggs in the Third Hour episode anywhere, I don't think.  But do we hear him?  Could Major Briggs be the man speaking to EvilCoop over the Suitcase Radio that EvilCoop at first mistakes for Phillip Jeffries?  ("You are going back in tomorrow.  And I will be with BOB again.") He also surprises EvilCoop with knowledge that he once met with Major Briggs.  Hmmmm.

 

Regarding earlier guessing:  I love the idea that Laura Dern could be playing a recast Annie Blackburn, or the legendary Diane.  Even if neither is true, I can't wait to see her.

 

Probably-Good-Leland in the Red Room tells HeroCoop to "find Laura."  What could this mean?  HeroCoop already spoke to GlowFaceLaura.  I can't wait to see where this goes.

 

It's interesting that the Glass Box Monster is credited as only as "Experiment Model."  No real name.  And Carel Struycken is listed as "??????"  Love that.  Maybe Lynch is intentionally playing with the credits on the show, moving things around and playing vague.  The original series didn't have the internet, wiikipedia and imdb to contend with.  If so, this makes DL even cooler in my book.

Pretty dang cool to me.

Also, this is weirdly funny...

 

But don't click or watch until you've seen the First Two Hours.

I never thought he was cool, but I understand that in the world of Twin Peaks he's supposed to represent that kind of cool.

In a podcast I listen to, one of the predictions one of the hosts made was that he hoped to see James be revealed as a cop 25 years later, which I think would have been an interesting new direction to take. He's already a Bookhouse Boy like Truman, and could refine his detective skills in that field. I like that it turned out to be Bobby instead, and that James had a bad bike accident that changed him. I do like what I see of him in the bar where he looks more assured and less pouty like in the original show.
post #966 of 2333

Yeah, seeing Bobby as a TP cop was pretty great.  I just hope he's a good cop rather than a bad cop.  This is someone who once shot a probably-corrupt undercover Deer Meadow policeman in the woods twenty-five years ago and apparently got away with it, after all.

 

Also, re: James...  When the only other motorcycle guy in town thinks he's Marlon Brando and is played by Michael Cera, one's own personal cool level also tends to skyrocket.

post #967 of 2333
I can see Bobby being a good cop with a bad streak. He was trying to make himself a better person in the second season, so I imagine taking this route seemed like a way for him to further move towards that.
post #968 of 2333

Me too.  I love when badguys (or misunderstood in this case, maybe) turn around and go good again.  Hell of a character change.  I just hope it lasts.  Maybe it'll be a day-to-day thing with him.  I love that he feels like a rookie in the station even though he's got to be close to forty five years old.  Good Guy Cop looks good on him.

Yup - he's cool in that he's a biker, into music, was broody and emotional, and, most importantly, was a fundamentally decent guy. The first few things seem silly reasons for someone to be considered cool, but add the last one and there you go. 

 

Shelly will probably have a lot of time for people like James, having spent a few years married to someone like Leo. 

post #970 of 2333
Bobby seemed a little dodgy to me when Frank was talking about that kid's OD and the traffic of Chinese designer drugs... My vote right now is, bad cop.
post #971 of 2333

I've got three likes for this one on twitter.  Kinda proud of myself.

Just finished rewatching episode 4 again. It's the most "normal" episode of the season so far, and it's still galdang ridicuriffic.

Are Andy and Lucy brain-damaged after siring the reincarnation of Marlon Brando?

I don't know if FWWM is essential to watching the new show, but it makes some of the more obtuse things a bit more "logical."

I always took "blue rose" in FWWM to be a code name for Project Blue Book that was referred to in S2, basically being to this show what the term "X-File" was for the other show. This only confirms the connection. So, that means both Desmond and Cooper went into their assignments knowing that the killings had a paranormal aspect to them. Where Desmond kept that to himself, Cooper was more open with those he worked with in Twin Peaks.

Those four episodes were so damn good, funny and weird that I'm still overjoyed at how great it is to have this show back and seeing Lynch being able to let loose as only he can.

Oh thanks!  My mistake: when I read that he was "the floating head" I thought they meant the guy in the jail cell.

They really sold it with them looking at him, then at the sheriff, then at him, all smiles the whole time.

To be fair, Major Briggs did die in a fire, and that dude looked like toast.  he just didn't look like Major Briggs.  He looked like......Jesus?

 

 

 

Just with a coon skin cap instead of a crown of thorns.  Maybe it's the ghost of Lewis or Clark.

post #984 of 2333

Considering the early chapters of The Secret History of Twin Peaks and the verbal mention of Lewis and Clark by Michael Sera, I'd say that's as solid a guess as any!

That's why I mentioned them.  I keep meaning to go back and re-read that first section of the book concerning Lewis and Clark and the ring.

 

Another thing I had forgotten about until I just started re-watching the first episode.  I'm sure it's just me, but I thought Otis, that old man in the cabin talking to Mr. C, reminded me a lot  of the hotel waiter from the original ("I know who you are").  Looked like a younger version of him.  

 

Also I wonder about the ox watcher and the security guard.  Something had happened to the previous person watching the box.  I wonder if a similar thing happened to the last person, and that's why there was no guard that night.  She said she would be back at the same time that next night.  You think they purposely pulled the guard, knowing what was likely to happen, to see if they could trigger something happening again?

post #986 of 2333

Just thought I'd throw out that both of these guys both work at a Vegas casino in the show - prob the same casino.  I looked it up, they're not related.

Now I'm freaked out.  Who the hell is the Ox Watcher!?

It's a testament to David Lynch's weirdness that when I first read that sentence I assumed that I just missed something and not that it was a typo.

post #990 of 2333

Damn phone typing.

 

Is it too lowbrow that I refer to that monster that breaks out of the box and munches that couple's faces as the Box Muncher?

Okay, I recognize Mr. Winky's from the first episode (and from eyebrows), but who is the second guy?  Isn't that a picture of the Joker's fake cop that Dent interrogates in the SWAT van?

He's the hacker in Ant-Man's crew.  Took me a minute to place him while I was watching the episode.

Ant-Man?  Who is he in Twin Peaks?

He's probably related to these ant people from Mulholland Driver:

Nope.  That was comedian Brett Gelman.

He leads Mr. Jackpot into Gelman's room along with another goon. Blink and you miss it.
post #999 of 2333

Ah, okay, so I'm not crazy.  With this show it can be hard to tell.  Like when you're arguing that the charred spectre that disappeared from a jail cell clearly wasn't an MIA character because it looks nothing like him, and anyway it's obviously a projection of the restless spirit of Merriweather Lewis, or his companion Clark.

 

 

 

Heehee, kaw-cay-zee-ans 

post #1000 of 2333

It did take me a really long time before I realized Ben Horne's secretary was played by Ashley Judd.
