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.

WHAT ABOUT THE WATCHMEN?


OK. I'm just posting this for the sake of throwing my thoughts out there. I doubt it will make sense to anyone following this blog, but I just want it on the ubernet.

Evidently, characters from the Watchmen-Earth have been fiddling around with the DC-Earth. In other words, DC tried a five-year failed experiment and thought the best way to fix it was to again rip off Alan Moore.

As the last year has progressed, all we've really been told as readers is that the DC-Earth (my word) was corrupted and a decade was stolen from its history. Yesterday, the story of "The Button" starts in the Batman and Flash titles. Of the characters pictured above, The Comedian and Rorshach are dead. A character seen since the "Rebirth" of the books has been known as Dr. Oz, and the obvious connotation is that he is Ozymandius, the blond guy between the two dead guys.

I suggest that the real identity is Nite Owl, the guy with the goggles. He would be the closest counterpart to Batman, and many people think the Dr. Oz thing is just too obvious. So. What else can I add to this? Dr. Manhattan (in blue) is seemingly behind this, somehow trapped. In his mini-series during the Before Watchmen event, he is seen creating a baby universe, to see what will happen. And so DC had an out, if what they called the new52, their line-wide reboot in September of 2011 (mainly making everybody five years younger), failed...well, that was Dr. Manhattan's little universe.

But that might also suggest that Dr. M. could change his own Earth, and bring Comedian and Rorshach back to life. Here's what I believe. That it is really Ozymandias that is trapped on the DC-Earth, by Nite Owl. Who the hell knows where Dr. Manhattan and his girlfriend, Sally Jupiter (seen above) are. They were on Mars a lot.

I'm just going on record as saying that DC wants us to believe--well, they have been since last summer--that Ozymandias has Dr. Manhattan locked up. I say that Nite Owl has Ozy locked up. After all, he was appalled at what Ozy had done at the end of the Watchmen graphic novel.

The GN was set in late 1985, and I'd be curious to see if Watchmen-Earth now has a 2017 setting, with the characters having aged the way all comic heroes do via a sliding timescale. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'll bet even Charles Gramlich doesn't believe me. Nor does Kurt Russell.
