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 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 …

Counterpart or Contrast: Is Season 3 Still Twin Peaks, or Something Else?

“Black Lodge/White Lodge” is the occasional 25 Years Later version of the popular point/counterpoint style of debating, wherein two sides take opposing views and hash it out on stage. Here, we’ll be debating the finer points of Twin Peaks lore, in writing, for your reading pleasure. Today’s debaters are: Brien Allen and Paul Billington The …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Twin_Petes and Kim

In the spirit of Twin Peaks Season 3 and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier, my wife’s memories of our Twin Peaks life together (as a result of watching the series and immersing ourselves in nearly all that it has offered over the last 28 years!) differ from mine.  Not fundamentally, but enough for …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – The Diane Podcast Team

Throughout their review of Twin Peaks’ original run, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Season 3, and their podcast’s subsequent branching, the Diane team has led us on a fast-paced, research-based look through the trees using their keen senses, an anthropological lens and Part 8’s “Uterus Trumpet.”  If you’re like me, closely observing the eclectic …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Daniel Ceresia

Daniel Ceresia and I are fellow members of the Blue Rose Task Force.  We didn’t “meet” on a case diving deeper into Lois Duffy’s strange disappearances, but through Showtime’s conscious assembling of about twenty passionate Twin Peaks fans whose collective social media presence made 2017’s Season 3 more special than I could have possibly imagined. …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Karl Eckler of the Counter Esperanto Podcast

During the run-up to Season 3 of Twin Peaks, I consumed as many podcasts as I could while driving to and from work, hoping to pick up every little nugget of information, while remaining as spoiler-free as possible.  Over the next two months, I'll be sharing the Living Novel entries of some of my favorite Twin …
