TWIN PEAKS - Beware Season 3 spoilers!

Yes, I'm thinking the papers have some Laura Palmer connection too.

So it's the first new Badalamenti composition on the show?

I think that's why I really liked yesterday's episode. It finally gave this season a big, dramatic, emotional moment; complete with that really nice musical composition. Despite seeing the accident coming a mile away, it was still pretty hard to watch. Clearly there will be more to this moment later in the season, and perhaps the big, sometimes almost amusingly overblown emotional moments I loved from Twin Peaks will be found with this thread of the story; since clearly they didn't go this route with the big double murder of the season, at least thus far.

I believe in part 5 there was a Badalamenti composition/co-composition that was cited in the "songs" at the end of the episode, which I had never heard before

 

EDIT:  "Solo Waltz" featuring Grady Tate, according to the updated tracklist for the soundtrack

Watched the episode. It was an improvement over last week's. I'm really hoping Dougie's story is this season's James and Evelyn equivalent low point, and that we're almost out of the woods with it. 

 

And thank god the music is finally creeping back in. 

 

My guess is the pages hidden in the door are from the diary, but I suppose that's too obvious so it's probably something entirely different.

Very good ep and certainly an improvement over last week's. I might be in a minority here, but I find the "Dougie" parts of the show consistently the most involving. Kyle MacLachlan somehow makes this gormless idiot incredibly moving.

I'm sure you'd find tons are in total agreement with you on that. 

 

I'm waiting for bad Coop to come back into it (forget Dale).

Did we see the midget murder guy before? And the lady she killed?

 

So many characters already, so many of them not introduced. Its hard to remember.

 

So has the reveal of Diane ruined the mystery?

It seemed to me like they went out their way to make Diane's physical appearance to be as far removed from what we had imagined or expected as possible. A tad contrived just for the hell of it for me, but I'm not going to make any judgements on Dern's role or the character just based on that one reveal. She could turn out to be a terrific addition. 

 

The killer midget is new. His first target was featured right at the beginning of last week's episode, panicking about a job not being carried out. Concerned for her safety.

According to the MUBI article, the victim of the midget attack was the woman who had planned a hit on Doug Jones in the previous episodes.

She seemed to be very worried indeed that bad Coop was going to come for her. That was the impression it created for me at that time.

Latest episode was a much-needed improvement from last week's. All it's beats hit bigger strides. Nice to finally see Dougie starting to "wake up", especially with that "make sense of it" punch line. Would have been nice if the plotline came to this point sooner without all the meandering filler before. I like the opening music for his scenes as well. Is that Badalamenti's?

 

I had mixed feelings about the absurdity of the boy's death scene (and the likely intentional, bad acting from the extras), but it felt very at home in Twin Peaks. Psycho midget assassin was also a welcome addition.

 

I guess we'll just have to see how it all comes together, if it does at all.

 

Oh and Diane looks great!

Loved that scene. The mix of tone and emotions is VERY Lynch. Check out the aforementioned MUBI article on that scene (I know I keep referencing that writer a lot, but I think he really manages to catch the essentials of the Lynch aesthetic in this series).

I must say the degree of brutal graphic violence has come as a surprise. I'm not convinced it's justified just yet either, or at least its regularity. Sometimes it can be more powerful when it never happens but is suddenly introduced. That can leave a lasting feeling of shock, but the effect will be lessened if it's something we come to get used to and even prepare for.

I've come to really like it as well. Thinking back to it now, there isn't anything about it I'd change, including the jarringly graphic death of the boy. The absurdity of it all is just right.

Episode 6

 

The first third was yet again a chore to sit through, but after that it finally felt like things were moving forwards. Diane! Car accident! Hawk finding what's missing! Midget attack! That last one was brilliant. Highlight of the season so far.

 

Here's hoping next episode marks the end of amnesic Coop, though (even if I'm thinking Lynch might have kept that for Episode 9, the season's midpoint).

 

Oh, and did anyone else notice?

I find them mesmerising and still enjoy them, but I'd be happy if they don't go on for too much longer.

 

Weird thing: I didn't recognise Laura Dern as Diane. Even though a few moments later I remembered that there had been speculations that that would be her character. Perhaps I was just too distracted by the wig.

PART 7!

 

All roads lead to Twin Peaks, and all roads lead to Cooper!  We must have spent 3/4 of the episode in Twin Peaks today.  And we get movement!  Hawk and Truman read Laura's diary entries about Cooper, and Ben Horne receives Cooper's key. 

 

I like the Ben Horne dynamic with Ashley Judd.  Honestly, just glad to have Ben Horne back in a bigger capacity.  And was that Josie creaking through the walls of the Great Northern?

 

Wonder who Ernie Hudson placed a call to after the military officer confirmed that the body was a same-age-as-S2 Briggs?  And interesting to see that dark figure from part 1 return in South Dakota, creeping blurrily around the morgue.

 

Glad they didn't dally anymore with the Dougie and Diane storylines (well, Dougie is still Dougie, but the next story beats happened quickly in this episode - the hit on Dougie and the confrontation between Diane and Mr. C).

GREAT ep, better than the last two IMO. Plot took several steps forward, and glad to see more of Twin Peaks itself.

 

At first I was a little taken aback by what a bitch Diane is :lol: did not really expect that from the character but that scene with her and Mr. C is pretty much what I wanted out of it. You get just enough info and her scene with Gordon was very moving, actually got a lot of nice insight into Diane with just those few scenes. Hope that's not the last we see of her.

 

Saw somebody on Reddit point this out, after that guy at the end runs in the diner looking for "Bing", the whole diner suddenly changes. Can't believe I didn't notice!

Yeah, this was by far the most straightforward episode, plot-wise, although Lynch still manages to sneak in some of his oddball trademarks, like the whistling introduction of Cole and the prolonged floor-sweeping sequence towards the end. I think Mark Frost had the 'writing reigns' on this one. I must say that that for as much as I love David Lynch, one of the great things about the original two seasons was that Lynch's esotericism could co-exist with more straightforward, at times even soapy narratives (usually directed by others). That's where I could really "soak up" the TWIN PEAKS surroundings that inspired me to write a novel, and this episode had some of that again.

 

Great to see Warren Frost as Doc Hayward, and hopefully his daughter will reappear soon too. I wonder if that's all the footage there is before he passed. I doubt there's any more of the Log Lady than what we've seen, for example. Albert seems to have many more scenes to come.

 

He mentions the bank explosion in his Skype conversation with sheriff Truman, confirming once again that Audrey Horne survived. I hope we'll see her soon.

 

Alas, we're still stuck with Zombie Cooper. I thought maybe the Jason Bourne-like 'instinct karate moves' would trigger old Dale -- especially with the aid of The Man From Another Place, but seems like we have to wait some time still.

 

Some wonderful shots in this one. The panning shot inside the Great Northern (good guess that the humming is the ghost of Josie!), the monochrome prison corridor suddenly illuminated by blue light, the slow camera movement towards the door of that white house (very MULHOLLAND DRIVE/WILD AT HEART!).

I loved the way that some dark Badalamenti synths crept over the twangy music in the diner during the end credits.

Probably very satisfying for the OCD crowd.

 

I actually looked at the clock about a minute in to see if Lynch could reasonably run out the rest of the episode on sweeping.

He, he....lots of narrative lines in the show that have been introduced, but then never explored again (thus far). I just hope he doesn't go all Lindelof on us, and manages to tie everything together -- if in a Lynchian way.

I feel the sporadic structure of this hasn't worked in favour of the viewing experience overall. All these different characters, some incidental, some not (it's impossible to know), there's been a sprawling cast of dozens introduced at what literally feels like random intervals; and on a week by week viewing model it has in my view been harmful to the "sofa experience". If there's ever a show that could have benefited from "binge watching" it's Twin Peaks series 3. An 18 hour film indeed - if you watch it all at once. That poor bugger from the Scream movie above, what the heck has happened to him and many others, with their own initiated subplots? "On hold indefinitely". 

 

I strongly suspect that those lucky people who watch all this much later on, after it has completed and at their leisure, will have an infinitely better and more cohesive viewing experience.

Exactly my sentiment, and I mentioned the same thing earlier in this thread. This format is not suited for the weekly episodic structure. I'm sure the layers will more easily reveal itself when binged.

Good episode (hands down the best with the first two), with a great sense of the season finally going somewhere (was about time). A bit disappointed by Diane, though (was hardly ever going to be satisfied by her anyway, since I'm part of the group who would have preferred her to remain unseen).

 

By the way, didn't Evil Coop want to get something in this prison? Seems like he leaft without getting that thing/information (unless it wasn't shown/wasn't made obvious to the audience what it was).

I wonder if he's a Bob-like spirit who took control of William Hastings to get rid of Briggs.

Lara Flynn Boyle didn't return, nor did Moira Kelly, so unless they recast the character (yet again), we won't see her again.

While the character himself hasn't reappeared, the plotline concerning him is still going, up until this very episode. Maybe Lynch thought there was no point showing him in other episodes just to have him say "I'm innocent! I didn't do it!" over and over again.

 

Not saying it's a good move or anything, just pointing that out.

 He wanted Ray from the prison. He wanted something else otherwise.

With the various intricacies of the plot being so spread out over weeks anyone would be forgiven for forgetting that Bad Coop originally wanted to get into the prison, for some reason, which is exactly what I did. 

 

This latest episode was definitely a better one though. There was some recognisable momentum there, which is what I need, on occasion.

I haven't rewatched any episodes, but if I recall, we don't know what he wants.  It has something to do with a weird Ace of Spades that he showed to that one character before he snuffed her out in a hotel room.

Having just seen Episode 8... let me be the first to say...

 

WHAT THE F**K WAS ALL OF THAT?!

 

Haha! Don't get me wrong, it was visually nuts at times and so Lynchian that if you admire his other work you can't help but smile. But... it went into all sorts of seemingly random (though likely connected) directions at the same time and... and... what the hell?!

 

And yet, I really dug it. ;)

 

I also feel like Lynch was channeling 2001 A Space Odyssey with his music and visual choices at one point. That was one of the best parts!
