    The episode was awesome!; period

    Not only it tells the origin of Bob, we got some awesome visuals and a performance from Nine Inch F'N Nails!
    It is my favorite episode so far i think it has lots of messages like "The nuclear bomb evils" and "Humanity's death of innocence".

    So from my understanding:

    - The "Black and white place" is the planet were the lodge spirits come from...
    - The "Evil" that the bomb unleashed brought Bob into earth.
    - The Gigant (??????) created Laura Palmer's soul as "good" entity.
    - "Evil Coop" apparently can't die by "traditional" means, does it mean only "Good Cop" can kill him?

    Wait, wait, wait...
    So Twin Peaks is using the atomic bomb testing in New Mexico as an origin story to further the plot?

    There's a certain other cancelled beloved series that uses the New Mexico atomic bomb as the beginning of evil taking over. What's the deal, Mr. Lynch? He watching Carnivále as well?

    Secret History of Twin Peaks had a whole bunch of seemingly random stuff about the creator of the Manhattan project summoning demons. Makes esnes.

    The woodsmen may actually have been foreshadowed in TSHOTP book as the victims of the 1902 burning river incident.

    I was ready to buy Margaret Lanterman's dead hubby as being the jail cell/morgue guy/guy from the FWWM movie, but now that there's a bunch of them and they really do seem malevolent, I'm gonna go and unsubscribe from that theory now and just assume he resides in the Log Lady's log like a sane person

    I love all of these readings and interpretations. It's just as fun being wrong about stuff as it is being right.

    Side note: Amazon page for the score now mentions "Grady Groove" (Featuring Grady Tate) and "The Chair" - tagline for the next part - as song titles.

    This is going to be one painful-ass week and a half.

    The Woodsmen are the hardest to "interpret", they are kind of like ghouls or even zombies, i used the "death of innocence" phrase because of them; they literally destroy the naiveness and "feel-good spirit" of the old days (just like the bomb did...).
    That convenience store echoes the one in "Fire Walk with Me", was the lumberjack a Woodsmen? something else?

    The creature in Mulholland Drive is a Woodsmen, that's for sure...

    i believe the creature in mulholland drive, while slightly similar in appearance, isn't related. my wife refers to that creature as "dumpster bum" and we're both still terrified of it.

    The NIN cameo was ridiculous and amazing all at once.

    This is a general question to fellow ETS Lynch fans: someone who was watching the new season with me dropped out, stating that Lynch has a problem with women and violence and two-dimensional roles. She also pointed to Lost Highway as an example. What do you make of the female characters in the new season (and the violence they receive)?

    i'm a hardcore feminist and i'm pretty quick to call out bullshit when people pull it. personally, i think lynch has a problem with the way women are treated in the real world, and uses his art to express how fucked up that is. i have never found his characters to lack depth. i mean, the entire basis of the series is the exploration of the rape and murder of a young woman...i hardly think lynch is endorsing that kind of behavior.

    Lynch just tells it like it is...

    He is obsessed with violence and sex and the "dark side of human condition", because those are topics very present in today's society.
    He sure is not for everyone and i can understand if someone doesn't like it, but feeling offended is dumb, the man is an artist and as such he has to treat the topics as they are.

    There's plenty of male "victims" in his work too; but i'm sure he knows that the female violence has the bigger impact.

    Could the old woman in the trailer in FWWM also be a woodsperson? Harry Dean Stanton and Agent Desmond both see her (both could be said to be either "gifted or damned" and therefore be able to see them, if they are some sort of Lodge spirits). I dunno, just an idea...

    And if the "White Lodge" scene is the same set as Club Silencio, what does that say about what happens at the end of Mulholland Drive? Is this the Lynch Cinematic Universe taking shape, hahahaha?

    I completely agree. Also Lynch has a very wide representation of women; old, young, thin, fat, various life experiences....they are people and not fluff.

    I've put most of my other subscriptions on hold for July because of financial issues. I wanted to keep Showtime, but now I think I'll just cancel it for July, and get it back in August. The 8th episode made that strong an impression on me, that I'd want to keep it that whole time so that when I get back to it 2-3 episodes will already be up and I can binge those. If that makes any sense.
