I'm not going to write much here about the finale of TWIN PEAKS. I'm going with what I wrote on Sunday night, the starting point. Which ended up being the film FIRE WALK WITH ME, not the original show. (Which makes sense, since I've mentioned being unfamiliar with the show prior to S3.)

I do believe there are multiple realities. I dream them, and I am often not crippled. So to extend that idea, I also feel as if there are dead timelines. Ghosts walking a certain distance, dancing, snoring on the couch,, all quiet and all repeating everything as if it is a loop of silent film. Not a collapsed timeline, but a dead one.

Laura Palmer screams in FIRE WALK WITH ME. In the finale, Dale Cooper saves her from being murdered, and changes the timeline. I want to call it a now-dead timeline, in the sense that David Lynch and Mark Frost are so cool with ghosts and spirits and David Bowie as a teapot. It would explain the multiple images and blurred images seen throughout the eighteen episodes.

The show ends with Dale Cooper as "Richard" and Laura Palmer as "Carrie Paige". Cooper asks what year it is (are they past the viewing audience's year?), Laura hears her mother, Sarah, saying her name in the darkness of Laura's old bedroom. Palmer/Paige screams and it is the scream we hear from FWWM. That is, Sheryl Lee can still scream pretty damn good. So. My thoughts.

From the point that Cooper changes history in 1989 until 2013 or 2017, the timeline is dead. Not until Laura Palmer screams at the end of 318 does the timeline become alive again.

In reverse. The ghost images at Jackrabbit's Palace, Bing looking for Billy at the R&R and the customers changing position. The scream recreated the timeline, but altered it. All the characters still exist, but some may have different professions, different fates. Different names.

I'm still thinking about that last minute before the credits because I know damn well there are other realities. What year is this? Part of me angry because I am as much in pain as I was when the show and film were aired. My life hasn't changed in that respect. I've aged. So that is what gave me nightmares on Labor Day morning. Awake yet asleep, going to bed at 4AM and waking at exactly 6:45AM. What year is this? At least Laura brought it back with the bookends of her screams.

TWIN PINKS AND BUENOS AIRES: WHY ARGENT?

I wonder if its time to figure out Murder Inc. Well, Buenos Aires might have been needed just to get Argent from Argentina. Argent is a silvery metal most often known for being a heraldic symbol. It is often depicted as white when there are words or symbols in engravings. (I guess like in caves.) Is Dougie the herald? Silver fork, silver mustang. And we did see that the moon right now is half full. Or at least the shot of it was what it will look like on the night Log Lady dies/died and her log turned to gold. Check out the link. I Googled if you can mix gold with argent, which came up as silver. I guess argent is a form of silver. In heraldry, you DO NOT put metal upon metal. So perhaps by turning something gold, it then cannot be corrupted by the silver. I dunno.

You can make a pager beep and bend silver through remote viewing, like Uri Geller was famous for. Should this be sent to Doc Jensen?

So you're stumped. A log stump. Where that whiny kid shot himself.

It would be nice if Dougie lived, the gold separated from the silver, and he stayed looking more like Cooper than Jones, which I know made Janey-E happy-E. Dale will kill BOB and I always thought that Hawk would die, just because.
