All I want in life is for Cooper to tell me that I too have a heart of gold. All other feelings I have about the episode this week are still in the "incoherent hollering" phase, so I don't even know. That was .... a lot.

I have some less than happy thoughts. or I would have had. but letting Eddie Vedder wear a hat and make noises for several whole minutes at me is the surest sign that David Lynch has as fine a command of the grotesque as he ever did, and that when he does awful obvious things it is never because he knows no better or because he could do no better. it is only because he wants to hurt us.

and I always respect that no matter what.

and Kyle MacLachlan's "Goodbye, my son" delivery was the funniest thing all season in a season of the best comedy I ever saw. it was good and it made me feel good.

Honestly, that was the best Twin Peaks has been in an old school sense (that is, in the style of the original show), until the scene with Eddie Vedder and his ridiculous bullshit schtick. Just, honestly, so ghastly. Bring back James for a fucking Christmas album before you hit me with that again.

"I am the FBI."
"People are under a lot of stress, Bradley."
"I know. Fuck you."

On top of all the craziness that I'm still processing, this episode had some of the best lines of the series.

& I am never going to the hospital again until I have some friends who are criminals and showgirls. don't care how sick I get.

& Audrey is real, even dreaming or delusional, and Diane is not. but I believe in Diane and I don't believe in Audrey very much. fake Diane is realer than most people.

& I'm so glad Tim Roth died before he could realize Chantal was dead. it would have been too sad otherwise

& I sort of think bad Cooper's question to Richard was a test to determine whether he was worth keeping a little longer or not. because if three untrustworthy people are trying to lure you someplace and two locations match but the third one doesn't, what do you do? you check out the one that DOESN'T match, Richard. you complete idiot.

Things that were very satisfying about this episode:
-Richard getting killed off in the most matter-of-fact way possible
-The reprise of the opening theme that kicked in around the 30 minute mark
-The 90s-video-game-lookin CGI of Diane's tulpa self-destructing
-The audience eerily swaying in unison from side to side during Audrey's Dance

Things that bothered me:
-Eddie Schmedder
-The way Janey-E suddenly turned into a passive character with the return of Cooper

That plus the treatment of Diane and Audrey in this episode make me a little worried for the finale -- specifically, I REALLY hope they don't make Sarah Palmer the Final Boss of Twin Peaks and retcon the abuse narrative of Laura Palmer in Fire Walk with Me.

So the implication is that the real Diane is in the Naido body, I guess, but now I'm super curious about what it is about OG Diane that's so important that everyone's converging on the sheriff's station and the Fireman told Andy to protect her and sent Cockney Hulk Hand to help out!

We have between two and three hours of the show left, so I don't think Diane at the sheriff's department is going to be the conclusion.

I don't think that'll be the conclusion, but I'm very curious as to Diane's narrative purpose at this point. It could be anything and there are a lot of pieces moved into place in that location and that's exciting! And hopefully gives a better end for Diane.

I know it's not personal for her like it is for the other two[1] , but I swear to god, right after Diane (who is Diane, even if she was a copy and there's another Diane or even if her final story didn't happen to "her," she's a Diane even if not the Diane) pulls a gun and Albert in an absolute split-second no-emotion no-decision decision shoots to kill an old friend who has been absolutely corrupted through no fault of her own, to save another old friend, and I'm not sure for long/if they were certain she was a copy or if they knew that copies don't just suffer and die like human bodies do --

right after that, Agent Tammy Preston goes OH BOY DID YOU SEE THAT, WAS THAT A TULPA OR WHAT! I SHOT TO KILL IT TOO, ME. TULPAS, WOW

tact is not a class offered at the academy

[1] which, if that is part of the point of her being there at all, in case something ever had to be done that Albert and Gordon couldn't bring themselves to do, I like it

There's also a drunk in a cell who looks straight from the convenience store and repeats words like Dougie. Diane said Booper took her to the convenience store, and we've seen her drink constantly.

When I saw Gordon Cole was in room 1827, I was afraid Diane was going to kill him. Because Cole is deaf, as was Beethoven, who died in the year 1827.

"Darya" is "Audrey" sort of sideways, but I'm pretty sure that isn't meaningful. Naido = Diane seems like a bit of a weak revelation, since we don't have a whole lot invested in the real Diane. I'm kind of sticking with the idea that Naido is Laura.

It is???

I was more curious about how the manufactured Diane came to realize her nature / apparently rebel against it. She and Jeffries gave Boop the same coörds, though she was just copying them (from the librarian), so I suppose she had no hand in that, but she did confess, in the end, to the Gordon and Albert. And was aware of herself.
posted by kenko at 7:55 PM on August 27


Wait... so Diane sent the coordinates to Mr. C... AFTER Mr. C went to the first set of coordinates? That is bonkers! Mr. C said he received 3 sets of coordinates -- I'm assuming one from Ray (the wrong one that zapped Richard), one from Jeffries, and one from Diane (both leading to the same place). Either there's another source, or there's some really weird time loop mojo going on, right?

It is???

When she was starting to break down, and talking about being in the sheriff's station, it seemed like a link to Naido, as she's the only important wild card we know about who is in the station. Could be that that's not the case, but it's the popular theory, and I know I immediately jumped to that too. I do like postcommunism's drunk guy idea, though. idk, Jeffries can be in a teapot, somebody can be in a monkey that says "Judy", MIKE can take over Gerard, hopefully Diane can be inhabiting another body and still play a part to get a better ending than "raped, murdered and copied twenty years ago".

Mr. C said he received 3 sets of coordinates -- I'm assuming one from Ray (the wrong one that zapped Richard), one from Jeffries, and one from Diane (both leading to the same place).

It seemed like the coordinates that Richard went to were the matching ones, which means the dying Ray was the only one who played it straight with Mr. C in the end which is kinda great. But then Diane gave him the coordinates from Ruth's body, didn't she? So were they wrong? And does that mean that Teapot Jeffries was not being straight with Mr. C when he seemed oblivious to all the current goings-on in Mr. C's life? I'm gonna have to rewatch or wait for the inevitable Reddit post about it I guess.
posted by jason_steakums at 8:09 PM on August 27


I think Jeffries and Ray gave mutually agreed on wrong coordinates intended to kill Coop, who they obviously had a problem with, and the Diane coordinates, in Twin Peaks, are the right one.

I never have any idea what's going on really, but I thought she gave him the wrong coordinates on purpose. as her only possible means and opportunity for rebellion. and then the smiley text let her know it didn't work, he was still alive in the world, it didn't send him back to the lodge, and sooner or later he'd be coming for her. so the terrifying music up the elevator to Gordon's room was because she was going there to get herself killed, either at her own hand or if her nerve failed her, in a suicide-by-FBI scene, as happened.

I guess some people think she was going to shoot Gordon on bad Cooper's orders? but I didn't think that at all.

I definitely assumed that Teapot Jeffries was not being straight with Mr. C at all. Jeffries had definitely been on the phone with … what's her face in the first episode, right?
posted by kenko at 8:20 PM on August 27


Wait, did Diane give him the coordinates previously when she did the "co-or-din-ates plus two" thing while searching them, or were the those numbers she gave him AFTER his smiley text the first time she gave him coordinates? Or were those numbers after the text even coordinates? I need to push on with my rewatch and pay more attention to those bits, I'm up to episode 8 but I've been saving it to watch again with a friend who is behind but has a lovely TV room setup for maximum "Threnody" impact. (Also I got up to episode 8 again when Trump was threatening nuclear war with North Korea and I was like "yeah maybe I'll wait on this one")

It was Jeffries' confusion and seeming wrong guess about whether Mr. C was the real Coop that made me unsure. I do hope we get a little bit more on that with the limited time we have left. Also I just want to see that creepy hotel again.

She says "I hope this works" when sending him the more complete coordinates. Which begin 48551, just like the numbers that Jeffries gave and which were on Ruth's body.

my last theory is on its last legs, but I so wanted and hoped to find out that the coma Audrey is in now is not the same continuous coma she was in after the bank explosion, and that she got in a good five-ten years of living before the next mysterious accident. almost no chance of that now. Though I do still have some hope that she's been in an ambulatory fugue state of some kind (or a Lodge) rather than a coma per se -- she's already standing up when she flashes to the white room.

a lot of this is just because as unforgiving as I am about Ben Horne, I still enjoy liking him when he makes it possible and the idea that he would say Richard had no father as the source of his problems instead of saying Richard had no mother, it's the final straw of unspeakableness. a bitter old man disowning his daughter for making bad choices is one thing but a selfish old man erasing his daughter from his whole mental world because she was broken and never got fixed is like Sarah Palmer-level empty space behind the face. I did think he was differently bad than that.

Yeah the slide from "gas station" (which we recognize by now) to "sheriff's station" is surprising. But it seems as if she then says that she sent him coordinates to a sheriff's station?

She mentions a gas station, and shakes. Looks at her phone again. Shot of Gordon; cut back to Diane. Gasps and says something about a sheriff's station, but I can't tell quite what. Cut to Albert and Tammy; cut back. She again says something where I can't even make out what comes before "sheriff's station", maybe just "by a sheriff's station". Cut to Gordon; cut back, and she says "I sent him those coordinates … by a sheriff's station".

Okay, so it makes sense that Ray and Jeffries sent the same set of coordinates, but then still, where did the third set Mr. C mentions come from? If it came from Diane, then why did she send them again? If it's a "more complete" set of coordinates than what she previously sent, where did that more complete version come from?

Maybe the real Diane is the echolaliac drunk in the cell next to Naido. Repeats everything like Dougie, drinks like Diane.

Why do people read recappers?
Some people speculated that his fork-in-the-socket stunt in Part 15 killed him, but it seems to have just dropped him into a coma, from which he rewoke with the wiring in his head finally working.
Yeah, it probably did "just" put him in a coma, like coincidentally, and then he happened to wake up as soon as he was alone 100% back, in a kind of totally unrelated way. All the people referring pointedly to electricity right beforehand must have been diversions.

A nice touch here is that the big opportunities for Just Exposition, Boop driving with Richard and then Coop riding with the Mitchums, are not exploited. We cut through the entire Boop/Richard drive, and we just get the barest uninformative (to us) summary in the Coop/Mitchum drive.

The camerawork at the end of Audrey's Dance was a nice touch--the way she ran toward the camera, you almost expected her to come crashing through the screen. Instead, she crashed through her own consciousness.

Also, totally bittersweet in retrospect, but Sherilynn Fenn dancing in the roadhouse was wonderful.
posted by duffell at 10:54 PM on August 27 [5 favorites]


Dougie/Cooper came out of an electrical socket but he wasn't complete. So sticking the fork in the socket helped him download the rest...?

Diane being in the Naido body is compelling but the first thing I thought was she was the lady in the courtyard who opened the door for Mr. C to see Jeffries and then stood there during the end credits of episode 15. She says he took her to "an old gas station" right?

I think the Naido body is Laura Palmer. Major Briggs assembled all the info to find the Naido body years before anything supernatural happened to Diane. Time doesn't seem to move backwards in any of the alternate dimensions in the Twin Peaks universe AFAIK.

Barring another nineties music star chewing up way too much time, great episode.

I think Jeffries gave Bad Coop the accurate coordinates. We know that someone is posing as Jeffries and that they tried to kill Bad Coop. (My money's on Sarah Palmer or the Mother creature that is controlling her.) That person gave Ray the bad coordinates. When Bad Coop went to see Jeffries, Jeffries seemed surprised that Bad Coop thought they had been in communication. I don't think Jeffries actually wants Bad Coop dead or had any reason to lie. As for the third set on Ruth's body, anyone could have left those as a trap for Bad Coop to find.

When Cooper woke up I just started bawling. I've been waiting 21 years to see him again and while I've enjoyed the storytelling of having The Adventures of Dougie Coop it's also been bittersweet. The joy of his face fully animated, his smile and his chipper tone and his self returned was like the best airport hug with a loved one after a long parting.

Cooper is back. He was trying to return this whole time and now he's finally here.

I feel so confused by Charlie's physical stature. As they walked in to the roadhouse together, he appeared to be almost as tall as Audrey. It's as though the actor was walking on a 3' platform immediately adjacent to Audrey and just below the camera frame.

Clark Middleton is 5' 4", the same as Sherilyn Fenn.

He looks smaller because he has had rheumatoid arthritis most of his life, which has had lasting effects, along with the cortisone used to treat it. For one thing, he can't move his neck, which is why he always seems to be looking down. It also gave him very puffy cheeks.

On the whole, it makes him appear dwarfish, rather that simply short. Probably didn't help that Lynch had him seated and complaining of being sleepy for seventeen hours, or however long those scenes went on.

Did anybody else briefly mistake Jerry Horne's scampering form on the hillside for one of the woodsmen? In the darkness, he looked like he was wearing head-to-toe black until he came into the moonlight. The juxtaposition with the secret-coordinate site, which led me to expect to see some kind of Lodge creature(s) there, reinforced this impression for a few seconds longer than might have happened otherwise.

Now I'm wondering if the Roadhouse, and by extension the entire "Where's Billy?" plotline, partially exists in Audrey's coma dream-time. Obviously, some of the Roadhouse scenes have to be taking place in the "real" world (since James and Freddy clearly exist there), but I wonder if we might be able to draw some kind of line between the Roadhouse sequences where the emcee appears (which seem to have a far more surreal feeling to them) and the ones where he doesn't.

I'm not sure if the Roadhouse is going to end up being a nexus point between realities, or if just this week's appearance is entirely in Audrey's head/reality/dimension/lodge/whatever.
posted by He Is Only The Imposter at 10:23 AM on August 28


At the very least, it seems like reality starts to get a little bit wobbly in the Roadhouse, which seems fitting given its status as a liminal space from the original show. So maybe Audrey's dream version of the Roadhouse contains features (and people) of the real-world Roadhouse, and vice versa, and maybe these features can interact with each other across levels of reality to an extent.

The musical acts have all been varying degrees of meta, in terms of featuring recognizable real-world artists, or lending obscure thematic reference to the preceding action of the episode, or otherwise partaking in the iconography of Twin Peaks. Examples: Rebekah del Rio's zig-zag dress, James taking the stage to play his one "hit" song, or Audrey's personal teenage reverie at the RR turned into a clear-the-dancefloor moment. The characters are interacting not just with the inner mythology of the show, but with the audience's reaction to the show as an artistic creation.

Obviously the Eddie Vedder bit was a dream, because Audrey would have heard about Pearl Jam in 1990, being from Washington and rich and bored and probably going to Seattle to listen to bands, and she's been in a coma or whatever so that's still her only musical point of reference.

Y'all, I'm scared that Audrey was the dreamer, and at the end of the previous episode she woke up, and everything we've seen was a dream, and the last two episodes are going to have nothing to do with the rest of the show and just follow Audrey's new life. Call it the Mulholland Drive ending. I doubt it, but WHAT IF?!

After all, Mulholland Drive was originally going to be a Twin Peaks spinoff about Audrey moving to Hollywood.

The 119 lady and her kid live in the failed Rancho Rosa development (which seems to be mostly given over to squatters and car thieves), whereas Dougie and Janey-E live in somewhat more comfortable digs on the other side of town.

Maxsparber - thank you! Gosh, yes, this whole time I had assumed they had a height difference, so I was very thrown off and immediately thought that the scene couldn't be real. (Which it couldn't, in the end. So...)

Has Coop been aware this whole time he has been occupying Dougie? Did Coop create Dougie, and that's how he knew about the seed? Or did Mr C create Dougie after raping Diane and making her Tulpa?
posted by samthemander at 1:44 PM on August 28


Dougie was a tulpa created by Mr. C that would take his place in the black lodge once 25 years had passed.

One thing that crossed my mind was how fast Albert pulled a gun on "Diane". I wonder if he, Gordon and Tammy were already suspecting something was off.
posted by lmfsilva at 2:00 PM on August 28


They did. They've been monitoring Diane's phone messages and know she has been in contact with evil Coop. I imagine they saw "winky emoticon ALL" the moment she did and suspected something was up.

In fact, I think Gordon calls her into the room before she has even reached the door or knocked, and all of them constantly have their eyes on her purse.

Still weird to have Albert use a gun. "I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love. I love you, weird supernatural Diane copy." (Meanwhile Tammy still absolutely lights her up)

They seem to have already figured out she was a tulpa. Although I agree it was weird for Albert to use a gun, even on a projected fabrication.

So going on the theory that the reason Cooper asks Mike to create another one is that he intends to bring Dougie back to Janey-E and Sonny Jim, what will become of Actual Cooper? Mutual annihilation with Boop? Retiring to the Lodge permanently?
posted by kenko at 2:19 PM on August 28


Perhaps I'm slow on the uptake, but while Mike is definitely of the Black Lodge, Cooper's relationship with him isn't antagonistic as such. (Perhaps a bit testy - "You're awake... finally.") So the Black Lodge is the source of difficult beings such as Bob, but Bob and by extension the whole Convenience Store crew are renegades from it, and Mike is as keen to clean them up as the Fireman?

One of the most jarring things about the new Peaks is how the Black Lodge has changed from this hall of horror to this cozy fun place where Mike & The Arm 2.0 help Dougie through his Las Vegas hijinx.

The Red Room has always been the "waiting room" but how to actually define that has been difficult. In the Return, it feels very much like the Waiting Room and the Black Lodge is the space above the Convenience Store and the White Lodge is wherever the Fireman lives.

They all intersect at the Red Room though.

They will find Coop's tape recorder in a file drawer.


It wasn't on Cooper when he left the Lodge, so where is it? Unless we established for certain those pages from Laura's diary are what the Log Lady meant was missing, I think this is it, to be honest.

Also, I hate to say it, but I think the real Diane is indeed dead, and not coming back. I think Mr. C needed Diane as a Renfield but couldn't control the real Diane, so he murdered her and replaced her with the tulpa. But ultimately even a simulacrum of Diane had too strong a will.

Now I'm wondering if the Roadhouse, and by extension the entire "Where's Billy?" plotline, partially exists in Audrey's coma dream-time. Obviously, some of the Roadhouse scenes have to be taking place in the "real" world (since James and Freddy clearly exist there), but I wonder if we might be able to draw some kind of line between the Roadhouse sequences where the emcee appears (which seem to have a far more surreal feeling to them) and the ones where he doesn't.

"I'm in the sheriff's station."

But she also says something along the lines of "I am giving him the coordinates" at the same time/interspersed with that message. Now, let's go back to a time when she was peeping the coordinates (on the body) in a Sheriff's station and memorizing them, to send them to Mr. C. I'm pretty sure that's what she's remembering ("I remember now") and realizing that she's a doppelganger/tulpa working for Mr. C, but that's not her true whole self.

Right, no, I think the idea was:

- The red room really does feel like its own distinct place now, not like it might be either the Black Lodge or the White Lodge. Instead,
- The Black Lodge feels definitively located in/with the convenience store, while
- The White Lodge is that place where the Fireman lives, and
- The red room is indeed, as advertised, a separate and distinct Waiting Room.

probably only the influence of Mulholland Drive makes me say this but I had a short-lived but strong feeling that Diane's tulpa was telling Audrey's story, not her own. & that something else entirely happened to the real Diane. maybe simple murder, maybe something else.

because A. unless Richard is wrong about who one of his parents is, that's what happened to Audrey, and telling that story twice this show with two separate beloved characters does not sit well with me. at all. if it happened, but in coma-time, that would explain why all of Audrey's dream-fears are basically an adolescent's nightmare vision of the worst cliches of middle-aged female adulthood, of what an 18-year-old might have been afraid would become of her, and not at all about sexual menace or total fear, and no form of Cooper is in it at all. however, I do not believe that even in a coma, such an experience would fail to make its way into her horrible dreams in some disguise.

however however, regarding my two-comas notion -- or one coma, one strange interlude -- what exactly is it Richard says about his mom keeping a picture of Cooper that he recognizes the double from? I remember it being said in a way that would make very little sense if he'd never met his mother when she was herself, but probably it was intentionally vague and I don't recall the exact words.

though I can imagine Richard's horrible treatment of Johnny and Sylvia coming from rage that this luxury caretaking setup is maintained for his incompetent uncle, but his equally incompetent mother is locked away in an institution somewhere, in perpetual second place even though her disability and need for personalized home care is just as great or greater. but Richard was hardly the type to stand up against injustice. or love his mother.

As much as I hate hate hate the idea of rape being part of Diane's story and Audrey's story, I feel like that die was cast as soon as they decided the premise of Season Three is Bad Coop has been on the loose for 25 years.

Because the whole entire reason the cliff hanger at the end of Season Two is so horrible is the implication that Cooper has become what Leland Palmer was, that he's going to go hurt Annie and any other women that Cooper cares about. (Which was, I hope, originally an--unless Sheriff Truman & his crew can somehow stop him and/or the Real Cooper escapes--scenario.)

I've always been repelled by that part of Twin Peaks (I couldn't even bring myself to watch all of Fire Walk With Me). I usually avoid movies or TV that use rape as a plot device. Lynch has done all sorts of fascinating, beautiful, sublime, silly things with Twin Peaks, but I really wish it didn't have this element at its core.

This fun recap of Part 16 suggests that Richard meeting an undignified fate* is the show's judgment on the edgelord bad boy who's become the hero of so much TV in the prestige era. It's an interesting thought, but Richard being taken out like a chump by the bona fide forces of darkness really reminded me of BOB owning Windom Earle way back when. One does not fuck with the infinite, and even someone mostly pure of heart like Coop is liable to lose a quarter century of his life to it if he steps wrong. Guys like Windom Earle and Richard Horne, lacking any sort of moral fortitude, don't stand a chance.

Still, there is something to the way Twin Peaks tends to deglamourize evil. Leaving aside the notion of Mr. C as out-and-out rapist for the moment, it's interesting that the only woman who genuinely seems sexually interested in him is Chantal, a violent psychopath. Whereas Coop -- even as Dougie! -- is a bit of a woman magnet; his inherent goodness is appealing, even when he's too shell-shocked to know who he is. In fact, damn near every person he encounters just wants to help Dougie. It's such a great subversion of the cool/sexy evil trope.

*Presuming we've really seen the last of Richard; the Fireman told Coop back in the beginning to keep an eye out for him, so I'm not sure Richard is gone from the show, even if he seems gone from this mortal coil.

Still weird to have Albert use a gun. "I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love. I love you, weird supernatural Diane copy." (Meanwhile Tammy still absolutely lights her up)

I didn't think this at the time, but is there any reason to believe Albert's little speech about nonviolence was serious and not just more being a smart ass to Sheriff Truman? Cooper's comment about Albert's path being "strange and difficult" could plausibly be Cooper shaking his head at Albert's persistence in being an asshole to people who don't deserve it.

Even if he's non-violent, his pulling out a picture of Mount Rushmore and giving it to Gordon Cole was a moment of passive-aggressive brilliance that to a Minnesotan was the equivalent of an actual physical beat down.

Well, (I think) we know that Mr. C set that place up. He knew someone/something would be passing through because he knows a bit more about how these portals between worlds work than humans at large do. (I also think) we know that the scary murder thing (experiment) in the box is related to the big floaty momma scary thing in the sky and also what came out of Sarah's face?
posted by destructive cactus at 11:08 AM on August 29


We know Bad Coop has seen the glass box. I don't think we know that he set it up. It seems like a science experiment to create or monitor a portal to other planes of existence (an artificial Glastonbury Grove), and that isn't really Bad Coop's style. I wonder if it was set up by whoever he talked to on the phone after killing Darya in Part 2; that person seems to understand how portals and lodges work too, and he knew that Bad Coop had been to New York.

I think all the weird stuff floating around the edges is the footprint of evil coop. The rampant, deadly drug addiction in Twin Peaks. The fried, backwards speaking mother in the new housing project. The Vegas scam that Dougie uncovered. Even the fact that Max Perlich was in it for a hot second as a janitor, because you know that guy was up to no good.

It's a world full of addicts and criminals, and that's the world that DoppleCoop made in 25 years.

He wasn't introduced as Eddie Vedder, though. He was introduced by his real first name. Edward Louis Seversen might have been playing gigs in Seattle in 1989. And Audrey did go to Seattle during the original run of Twin Peaks.
posted by crossoverman at 2:47 AM on August 30 [3 favorites]


Per Wikipedia, Vedder was living in California in 1989. But this is pedantic, and while a lot of people are hung up on the original Twin Peaks taking place at a certain time, I kinda feel like it takes place in 1990-91, because...well...it was on then. And unless the current series takes place in the future (where it's already the end of September), it must take place in 2016.

Anyway, Vedder's presence in Audrey's dream can still make sense if Audrey isn't dreaming so much as she's travelling spiritually to whatever realm this version of the Roadhouse represents. I'd have to rewatch with this notion in mind, but it seems sometimes the announcer is intense and serious (like with NIN) and other times he's pretty chill and down to earth (Lissie, ZZ Top). I'm guessing the latter are scenes where the Roadhouse we're seeing is in the real world, and the former are...the other Roadhouse. Which exists independently of Audrey, but which Audrey's spirit form can travel to. Maybe in dreams people like Eddie Vedder and "the" Nine Inch Nails can wander there, too.

Any thoughts on the numbers "Diane" sent back to boop? She acted like it was supposed to do something, but I couldn't tell what it was other than clear herself of his influence in some way that didn't seem to be effective.

Somewhere I heard this season compared to science fiction, which I think is interesting. There was a kind of subtle shared-minds concept going on with her, I think -- she was a kind of evil doll, created by Boop, and imprinted with the image of what must have been a wonderful woman. A long time ago, inside of the world of real coop, the goofy, good-natured world he emanates where everyone is half a stereotype from a fifties movie, I imagine Diane as a quirky, fiery secretary, secretly swooning for her dreamboat FBI agent boss. She had those two elements fighting in her -- her fakeness, the fact that she was a spy for evil, and the part of her that was the real Diane, a great woman whom evil had deeply touched but was still there enough to know something was really wrong. You can see that part of her die when she consciously realizes she's a fake, leaving only the bitter shell of Boop's magic, which tries to kill the FBI agents, but fails and is destroyed in the waiting room. Anyway, that's my take on her story.

I agree that she may be dead, but I think one (nice?) thing about the lodge cosmology is that even if you're dead, you don't really die. Laura died, and had both her true self and her d-o-p-p-e-l-g-a-n-g-e-r present for the series finale. I think we have a good chance of seeing real Diane for that very reason. The Lynchian version of a Force Ghost.
posted by codacorolla at 6:59 PM on August 31


Also... is there any chance that Maddy was a Tulpa? The idea wasn't fleshed out at that point in the series, but a lot of it fits: identical appearance, slightly off... not sure who would've created her, though. She may have been created very early in Laura's life, which is why the Palmers recognize her as a cousin.

Codacorolla - I like that idea. If she was copied young, that would address the issue of Tulpas retaining memories of the person they mimic. I guess Maddy was always kind of an odd slow-talker.

Any thoughts on the numbers "Diane" sent back to boop?

My understanding is that he got one set of coordinates from Diane, another from Ray and a third from Teapot Jeffries. Two of the sets were the same, and Richard advised him to "check out the two that matched". I'm not sure but I think the two that matched were that rock Richard stood on, and the third was in Twin Peaks. I might have that backwards.
posted by christopherious at 9:09 AM on September 1


Right, but the numbers Diane sends after the "ALL" text don't seem like coordinates. He sends that text to her after the coordinates fail, and then she replies with a long strong of numbers and says, terrified, "I hope this works."
posted by Rinku at 9:39 AM on September 1


Yeah, I'll have to rewatch one or two of those episodes again. Her memorization of the coordinates on Ruth Davenport' arm seemed to imply that she would text them to Evil Coop, but I recall that oddity as well. If that wasn't the third set he said he'd received, I'm at a loss as to where he might have gotten the third set.
posted by christopherious at 9:45 AM on September 1


The number Diane sent to Coopleganger in this episode is the same as the number on Ruth Davenports arm. (48551420117163956) And those can be broken out into coordinate as per lapolla above.

Teapot Jeffries also breaks them out into coordinate when we see him write the beginning in smoke. You can see the "degree" and "minute" symbols.

We see Coopleganger receive 2 sets of numbers before this episode. The ones from Ray's pocket (supposedly sourced from Hasting's secretary, Betty,) and the ones from Teapot Jeffries.

I believe that the third set of numbers that Coopleganger received is from Diane, but that she originally sent him false coordinates. Coopleganger took Richard to those false coordinates, anticipating the trap. When Diane saw the ":-) ALL" message, she tried sending the correct coordinates, hoping for, I dunno, mercy or to play it off as an error.
posted by He Is Only The Imposter at 11:04 AM on September 1


Got it. That makes sense. I wonder why she chose to both try to redeem herself to Boop with the right coordinates and commit suicide by FBI, rather than one or the other. I suppose maybe she didn't enter their office with a clear plan.

This time I also noticed that right before she says that, there's a sound of what seems to be a bit of backwards music. So I think that was a clue about Diane's nature back then.

Back in Episode 3 when Coop was about to return to the world through an electrical socket labeled "15," Naido waved him off, threw a switch, and he goes through a socket labeled "3."

So then in Episode 3, Coop emerges from an electrical socket and becomes Dougie. Then later in Episode 15, Dougie connects with an electrical socket and receives the shock that appears to bring Cooper completely back (although we don't actually get to see this has happened until Episode 16).

So was Cooper originally supposed to come back in Episode 15? but Diane realizes this will be too late and re-routes him to Episode 3? but that's too early so he gets stuck in a fog until the rest of him can come through in Episode 15?
