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 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 …

“Don’t Take The Ring Laura” – Looking at the Fates of Both Laura Palmer & Agent Cooper

Agent Cooper surprised many with his actions at the end of Part 17, going back to the night that Laura Palmer died and attempting to alter the course of events that night. The question is why? Many very plausible explanations have been given by Twin Peaks theorists and scholars but none have completely convinced me. The …
