……and, as always, it was a fun trip, filled with secrets, damn fine coffee and people who are both familiar and strange. It refreshed my memory of what happened to the characters before and after the mystery of Who Killed Laura Palmer. It also raised new questions in light of the images that the new series has released from the new season.
I stopped trying to avoid spoilers or commentary about the season. My reasoning for doing so is this – it’s David Lynch. One could create an entire university in order to study his methods, his ideas and his philosophy and not get any closer to understanding than “He’s different; he creates thought-provoking material; I don’t get it, but I like it”.
Or not, as the case may be.
In any case, I’m looking forward to immersing myself into this unexpected and much-longed for third season of Twin Peaks. It’ll be nice to see how the citizens of this fictional town have fared over the years, what they’ve been up to and how their stories will unfold. I wonder if the owls are still not what they seem and if music is still playing in the air.
I’ve got my coffee brewed and my snacks allocated. I can’t eat donuts or pie anymore (sugar gives me a headache), but I think Dale Cooper would approve. The Good Dale, anyway. I’m sure the Bad Dale would scarf down anything he chose to.
