    Second: I wrote right after the finally aired that I thought the ouroboros was a major theme in the series but while watching it, I felt that it was a mix of ouroboros and of the Mobius Strip. I felt that the "starting point" of the cycle was her death and that there is no escaping that. In the final episode, when she screams, I thought that it was because she remembered her death and that it brought her and Cooper back to the "original" timeline. That essay does give a much better explanation though.

    Some fun stuff I noticed in the series about the cyclistic theme: the round rainbow in the title sequence, "Is it the future or is it past?", "I am dead yet I live", the Log Lady telling Hawk that "the circle is almost complete" etc.

    The number 8: the sign that represents Judy transforms into this number; when EvilCoop goes to see Jeffries (in the room above the gas station), Jeffries' room number is 8; Freddie is in cell 8; The Palmers' address (708); heck, the whole episode 8 and while I'm at it: the name BOB itself: 808.

    I'm sure I've missed some too.

    lol @Lew , I remember that! That was about the point when I knew there was hope for more Twin Peaks, if KM was game for a Harlem Shake video. Imagine if they did one now, after that third season..?

    Which one? There's like a lot

    I was seriously considering getting this ring from the Twin Peaks merch site. I went as far as going to a jewelry shop to get my fingers sized. In the end I feel that I should probably use the 150USD to pay down some debt or something. Still... it would be pretty boss to have and wear around.

    Of all the unanswered questions with this show, the one that bugs me the most is what the hell happened with Audrey?

    It would appear that she danced her way into her own reflection. I reckon Audrey died when Richard Horne died, and she is in some white lodge room about to come to terms with being without a gravity anchor

    Finally finished the series. Overall, I liked it. Very, very confusing though. Guess i'll start running down the list and questions...

    Audrey. So basically, she was in a coma after the bank explosion, Evil Coop rapes her, and she gives birth to Billy? Then, he sacrifices his own son to set off a trap that was originally set up for him? Also, it got me wondering on just how much of the roadhouse stuff is real. Is that just her dreams/delusions? At first I knew something was off. I figured she have had some sort of brain injury/dementia. But after her "awakening" or whatever, i'm thinking she was still "sleeping" in a psych ward somewhere. Charlie, the "husband", maybe he was her psychiatrist. After her reveal, it kind of makes sense considering how he always talked to her. He's probably her doctor.

    The black and white 30s room. Where is that exactly? Is that the white lodge? I'm pretty sure the convenience store was related the black lodge. That 8th episode was like gibberish to me for the most part. And what's the point of the little girl in that episode? You see that insect thing crawl inside her mouth and that's the end of it. Or am I missing something there?

    Then there's the whole thing with Carrie Page, Judy, Sarah Palmer, etc. I don't hate it. I just don't get any of it.

    Is the ending comprehensible in the somewhat logical way that LH and MD can be seen to be corresponding with their various seemingly semi-segregated stories or is it more of an emotional logic? I had trouble following the resolution even with repeat viewings and would love some insight (the Reddit etc theories were so off the wall). I have an *idea* but I'm not sure it's right.

    That's kind of the point. The ending is supposed to give you ideas. There's no right or wrong answer. Let your imagination run wild. I've had so many different interpretations cross my mind and it's fun to think about.

    I get there's going to be different interpretations. I'm just not sure what some of these settings are. Is it always supposed to be 1930 in the white lodge? Assuming it's the white lodge because of the giant/fireman. A lot of things don't bother me. It's just that i'm not exactly sure of things that I feel are probably minor that I probably should. LIke the 1930 room.

    lots of spoilers - and also, i'm not guaranteeing that some of this is correct, this is just my interpretation.

    by billy did you mean richard? we never actually met billy (if he's even real), but richard is audrey's son.

    yes, that's the white lodge. i believe it and the black lodge both exist out of time, to an extent. and yes, the convenience store is absolutely related to the black lodge. that's where many of the lodge spirits live/have lived over the years.

    episode 8 is about opening a portal into our world via the atomic bomb through which the evil of the black lodge could more easily travel, as well as the creation of bob. the fly-frog is an agent of the "mother", and the girl it inhabits at the end of the episode is sarah plamer, as evidenced by what we see when she removes her face in a later episode.

    here are some great articles that may help explain things:

    ^I Need that in my life...

    Also: i was watching yesterday Season 2 (the infamous episodes after Laura's killer is revealed) and it has a scene where a very depressed Ben Horne (he just lost The Mill and Ghostwood...) is talking to Hank and starts rearranging furniture claiming "it could create a resonance ...imagine the benefits!".

    So it's clear to me Lynch used that idea in Season 3 with the strange noise in Ben's office, not many have mentioned this but i think there's something to it...

    Fenn says here that she cried when she read Audrey's original part, refused to do it, and had Lynch rewrite it. It's not exactly news but it's the first time I see it stated so clearly all in the same answer. So the theorizing around here seems pretty much confirmed? That she was originally meant to have scenes with the other Hornes, didn't do it, so they filmed in Washington writing around Audrey's absence, and when they eventually struck a deal Lynch wrote her a plot that had to match the fact that everyone in town acts like she's not there?
    And her interpretation is that Audrey is not dead or in a coma but stuck inside a dream, that there's a light in her that hasn't gone out.
    She also says that Lynch's direction was "this scene, do it like you did it 25 years ago", which she found frustrating because she's not the same person she was 25 years ago. Imho, it's a perfect direction if you want someone who is not the person they were 25 years ago to show the struggle in going back to who they were 25 years ago?
