Twin Peaks: Navigating between two worlds (Part 5 of 5) – Electricity Nexus #22E

Now that we've spent the first four parts looking into Twin Peaks reality and how to navigate it, we're finally at the big questions: Was Dale Cooper following a plan? Did he take away Laura Palmer's agency and/or blow up reality as Twin Peaks knows it? Is he dead? Every interpretation of these questions' answers seems …

Twin Peaks: Navigating between two worlds (Part 4 of 5) – Electricity Nexus #22D

Twin Peaks Season 3 has taken a lot of flack for not feeling like there are protagonists, antagonists, or even things they want. At the time, I knew it had to be purposeful, but all the same I couldn’t quite understand it. But over time, I’ve come to this conclusion: I think Season 3 is …

Twin Peaks: Navigating between two worlds (Part 3 of 5) – Electricity Nexus #22C

No scene in Twin Peaks Season 3 is ever cut and dry whether it is set in material reality or Lodgespace. As I said in Part 1 of this theory: Fans are constantly debating if the Roadhouse is material or non-material, if Audrey is in a mental institution or the Black Lodge. Fans debate if the Las …

Twin Peaks: Navigating between two worlds (Part 2 of 5) – Electricity Nexus #22B

In the original seasons of Twin Peaks and Fire Walk With Me, there were two states of reality in play: the material world and Lodgespace. But as Season 3 proceeded, it became clear where once there were dualities there are now instinctively three available choices, as best explained by Brien Allen in Themes of Three …

Twin Peaks: Navigating between two worlds (Part 1 of 5) – Electricity Nexus #22A

If you feel like the central trauma of Twin Peaks (the murder of Laura Palmer) shouldn’t/can’t be undone, this theory is for you. No matter how many Season 3 moments involve turning away from or covering over this fundamental trauma, reality cannot be expunged just because of persistent disinformation. What’s my alternative explanation to the original …

Why Diane and Laura are the Heroes of Twin Peaks – Electricity Nexus #21

Obscured as the narrative is, it took me a while to realize that Diane Evans and Laura Palmer are the heroes of Twin Peaks Season 3. But they absolutely are. How can I say that when clearly Kyle MacLachlan was present through the entire series? Because he (mostly) played the roll of the villain. The …

Why Major Briggs swallowed Dougie’s Wedding Ring – Electricity Nexus #20

Major Briggs had Dougie's wedding ring in his stomach. It has this inscription: "To Dougie, with love, Janey-E." Constance Talbot (who you know is a good soul because she and Albert hit it off) found the ring there during the autopsy. This is about all that's known about it. I went down this rabbit hole …

Coordinates (ft. the roving #6 Telephone Pole, Palmer Houses, 2 birds and a stone) – Electricity Nexus #18

There are differing opinions about the Coordinates that were so preciously desired by Mr. C in Season 3 of Twin Peaks. A Facebook post over the weekend got me thinking about exactly what we do and don't know about the coordinates, and it took me here, where I will go so far as to explore their purpose. Mr. C Wants the …

“Is it Future, or is it Past?”: Pinning the final Season 3 scenes to time – Electricity Nexus #17

This time around, I’m looking at signs of Past and Future in the final RichardCooper and Carrie scenes of Season 3. I touched on it right at the end of my memory theory column where I suggested an angle for it being the future, which I'll expand on after making a case for placing it …
