The last four or five episodes have been fantastic!

Loved the series as a whole, but 16 was my favourite. :wub:

That bit when audrey's dance started playing comfirmed my suspicion that something wasn't right - she was in an exploding bank vault at the end of season 2 so this has to be something odd. Also interesting use of the soundtrack in-world.


Interestingly, Audrey's Dance was also used diagetically in S1. I agree that this takes it a step further, though, with the name-checking of the actual OST title within the episode itself.

Fantastic episode.


Terrific stuff, all round. Though I don't think BOB is still with Mr C. I had thought the Woodsmen removed BOB when Ray tricked and shot Mr C?
What a way to go, though. "Goodbye", indeed.

I stopped at about half way through for a holiday and although I have the remaining episodes recorded, decided yesterday that my time watching them could be spent better elsewhere. A quick skim of the comments above suggests there are some good episodes to come, but as someone who hasn't enjoyed the first half, am I likely to share this view?

Yes?

If you hated the show I don't know if the rest of the season will change your mind but I do think it's gotten better as it's gone on. Having only caught up on the show in preparation of season 3, I do think this is the best most consistent season. I would love a season 4.

I'm a huge fan of Twin Peaks but I hope they wrap things up and that's that; there's nothing worse than a great tv series going on way longer than it should and spiralling into mediocrity.

Well that was...extraordinarily confusing, answered almost no questions while posing many more and ended on one hell of an abrupt and disturbing final moment, i loved it.

3x17 was fantastic and was a better final episode than the final episode. Though where the hell was Audrey?

I don't know what 3x18 was.

At all. I can only assume it's a prequel for a fourth season because that didn't resolve anything. One thing I noticed was that "Cooper" was acting far more like Bob Cooper than Cooper.

Sheryl Lee's scream is terrifying. :lol: I almost had a heart attack.

From what i know of david lynch and twin peaks, i would be genuinely surprised if anything ever gets resolved in a manner resembling how most tv series wind up. I kind of hope they don't; that how it ends is...how it ends, i wouldn't expect anything less from lynch. I did like how cooper used the red room person copying thing to make a version of himself for his "family"in vegas that was quite a touching thing.

Holy gooseberry fool yes, a real blood-curdler.

I expect to be thinking about that episode for some time to come. Troubling, perplexing, fascinating. It's been an odd couple of months having GOT and Twin Peaks to watch back to back. Love both shows, but couldn't be further removed, content-wise.

And while I would be happy to watch another series if one was ever made, I don't expect it would wrap everything up with a neat conclusion, so it might be best left alone.

Now that some time has passed, I think that there is no need for a season 4, as much as I love this show, (not that I wouldn't be very excited if a 4th season was announced)

It has such a special place in my heart, and season 3 despite its numerous flaws solidified it as my favourite show ever.

After reading up on theories, I have signed myself off on a favourite that in my mind fits perfectly what we have seen and what we know and leaves a nice ending to Twin Peaks and adds some closure to those final moments in the last episode.

I will spoiler the theory just in case;

There is a heavy foretelling of dreams, from Gordon Coles Monica Belluci dream, who is the dreamer- to the sherrifs station in Twin Peaks where the eerie Coop overlay asks "we live inside a dream".

I believe the dreamer is Laura Palmer, on the night of her death, after having been led to safety by Cooper in episode 17.

Somehow, when Cooper and Diane crossed that electric threshold at 430 miles ("when we cross things might be different") they become Richard and Linda- this is because they have crossed into Laura Palmers dream, where names are irrelevant and even unknown to Laura.

We know this is possible because in episode 17, Laura herself says she has seen Cooper in her dreams, and has written about him in her diary before her death and before Cooper ever came to town.

So Cooper, in Laura Palmers dream tracks her down- she is now Carrie Page (I might be wrong here but I seem to remember Laura saying she has dreams about being someone else?)

He takes her to Twin Peaks only to find her house is occupied by someone else.

The biggest clue is after Cooper asks what year is it (it's probably 1989 in the awake world, the night Laura should be dead) Laura hears her mother shouting her name. This shout of Sarah Palmer matches exactly the shout in the very first ever episode of Twin Peaks, where she shouts Laura's name for her to come down for breakfast, before Sarah knew Laura was dead.

Laura hears her mother Sarah shouting her name, an echo from the waking world, realises she is dreaming and lets out a horrific scream, thus waking up alive in 1989, the episode quickly cuts to black like how a dream would end if you suddenly wake up.

Meaning everything that happened in Twin Peaks has been reversed. Cooper never went there.

His ultimate fate is unknown.

There are a few problems with this theory, like surely Laura would recognise her own home even in her dreams? But overall I really like this theory and if it is correct, ends the show nicely.


If this is incorrect which it probably is, then I really do want a season 4 :

However for now this ending just works in my mind, and offers closure for the series if it is never to return.

Forgot about this. I did finally finish it, but found most of it a chore to get through, or maybe "work through" is a more accurate description. I think 10-20% was something I found enjoyable so probably just 2 or 3 episodes would have been enough for me. Knowing what I know now, wish I'd not watched it and just have been left with my fond memories of the first 2 series.

Yes?

Episode 18, then...

"what year is it?"

Wonder if anyone'll do a fanedit that cuts out all the... inconsequential stuff :shifty:

It could have used some sharper editing, would have improved the pace a lot.

Loved it overall.

Loved is an understatement

Making my way through The Return and Part 15 might be one of my favourite episodes of any show. The two emotional extremes with the heartwarming scene of Nadine freeing Ed and his proposal to Norma, and ending with the devastating scene of the Log Lady calling Hawk in her final moments.

Absolutely heartbreaking for obvious, real world reasons, as Catherine E. Coulson died so soon after. :cry:
