    Season 2 finale is one of my favorite episodes of all time. And although I really, really like this finale as well, there's a feeling of deliberateness to its admirably stubborn irresolvability that makes it comes off a tad manufactured, not as spontaneous and darkly free-falling as that one (last five minutes or so come a bit close). Episode 17 is one of my favorite of the season though; the Laura stuff destroyed me.

    Also no wonder Sherilyn Fenn was so angry for a bit there before season 3 lol. Same, Audrey.

    Haha. Lynch turned Twin Peaks into Inland Empire by way of Lost Highway.

    Which means I loved it, even though there's much I still need to process.

    Part 18, where [
    ]

    It was magnificent.
    "We eventually managed to find them near Biskupin, where demonstrations of prehistoric farming are organized. These oxen couldn't be transported to anywhere else, so we had to built the entire studio around them. A scene that lasted twenty-something seconds took us a year and a half to prepare."

    According to the New York Times, the woman who answered the door at the Palmer house was played by the actual current owner of the property.

    My reaction to 17:



    My reaction to 18:

    I feel physically sick, no joke. Is this what watching the finale of S2 back in '91 felt like? I felt the episode was pretty great, Cooper on his quest, following the clues, and then the long ride back to Twin Peaks... during that ride back I was thinking, wow, conceptually this is a brilliant conclusion, the final return, but then I happened to see the time and realized that only five minutes were left and it just started hitting me in waves. I knew where it was going. The door to the house opened and my heart sank. It's exactly like Melville was saying, the reality of Laura's abuse and the incomprehensibility of Cooper's quest. I guess that was the story of the whole season and this revival in general. You can't go home again. Cooper and Laura just standing there in the street at the end was agony. I felt my soul getting torn in half. I still feel sick and it has been a couple hours now since I've seen it. This shit completely fucked me up.

    Game over. Judy wins.
    Making yet another effort again in 2017.

    I know what you mean. Haunting doesn't seem like a big enough word to describe it.

    I think it's just as interesting to look at the questions that were not definitively resolved as it is the ones that were:
    Who is Naido? Diane
    What happened to Billy and why does it matter? Don't know
    Is Audrey stuck inside some kind of existential limbo or what? Something like that, but no explicit answer
    Was Sarah Palmer that girl who had the creepy bug walk into her mouth? Possibly? But no explicit answer
    What was making all that noise in Sarah Palmer's house when Hawk showed up? Don't know
    How did that ring get in Major Briggs' stomach? Don't know, perhaps the most fascinating unsolved mystery
    What the hell is going on with Diane? Tulpa Fever
    What's up with that mysterious sound at the Great Northern? It was MIKE/a portal to another dimension
    What does it mean that Laura Palmer is "The One"? No explicit answer, but lots of information from which to formulate a theory
    What is the Experiment? Don't know
    Does Janey-E know more than she lets on? No, she was just who she appeared to be
    Why does Cooper need to remember Richard and Linda? In case he wakes up alone in a seedy motel room in another dimension
    What is the one-gloved man's destiny? To punch a menacing BOB nugget

    EDIT: Also, who was it that called Dark Cooper on the phone claiming to be Phillip Jeffries? Don't know
    As for Audrey, I've seen some complex theories, but for me, the simplest explanation works best. She was in a coma for 25 years, including her pregnancy. The initial scenes we see are her unconscious visions as she struggles to wake up. Her final moment is the shock of waking up to realize she's slept through 25 years of her life.

    I want a special Emmy to be created solely for Sheryl Lee's screams.

    It's also good to know that, if you were making a series and David Bowie was going to play a part but died, you can always replace him with a steaming kettle.

    I'm sorry I have nothing to offer but puns but I'm still flabbergasted, to be honest. The first half's ending was very emotional for me while the final episode was flat out disturbing.

    Yep! All the while I was watching the ending approaching, I was thinking to myself, "This is the guy who was forced to reveal Laura Palmer's killer when he didn't want to. And he was still stewing about it years later. There is no way in hell he's going to give us a tidy resolution."

    It's been really wonderful to see how many writers have rightfully acknowledged the series as a landmark and the ending, in particular, as a master stroke. What other show can inspire quotes like this?:

    "It stopped feeling like a TV show to me, at some point, and started feeling like a gift." - Vox

    "The series is one of the great recent cinematic achievements; its ideas are profound; its effect is enduring ..." - The New Yorker

    "We can start writing our think pieces now, and I’ll see you again in 25 years, when we still haven’t talked it all out yet." - The AV Club

    "We might not want every show to feature evil doppelgangers, talking kettles and sentient tree-blobs, but it's a wonderful thing that at least one does." - The Sydney Morning Herald

    "In the end, it felt like a triumph. This season was a show unlike anything else on television, even its old self." - The Irish Times

    "Lynch and Mark Frost never let an episode pass without a scene that rendered me dumbfounded at its ambition." - The Atlantic

    "'I tried to catch up on it while I was doing some other stuff,' a friend recently told me of the new Twin Peaks. 'That’s what I do with most TV. It did not work.'" - Slate

    "Strangely, it’s almost a relief to encounter a show so steeped in darkness that it renders the fears of our common present more manageable." - The Verge

    "[It] will likely hold an important place in the history of the development of television." - HuffPost UK

    If you'll indulge me as I post yet another article, this breakdown of the identity of evil in the new series is quite eye-opening. I can't believe how much I am still learning about this show.

    So I wrote an article about the last two episodes. People are going nuts for it:

    Interesting theory - have not had a chance to see the series yet. Even if this is not really deliberate has something like this been done before?

    I was reading this 2006 interview with David Lynch and was struck by a quote on the nature of evil. The context of the quote is really about Inland Empire. However, it inspired me to create this ...
