10 Initial Thoughts About Twin Peaks: The Return Part 4 (dir by David Lynch)


Ever since they first became available last weekend, I’ve been watching and rewatching both Parts Three and Four of the Twin Peaks revival. And, before I even attempt to write an in-depth recap, I’m going to have to watch both of them again!  Until I do that, here are a few initial thoughts!

(Be sure to check out Ryan’s thoughts on Parts Three and Four as well!)

1. Hey, it’s Ethan Suplee!  I have to admit that I had mixed feeling when I saw how many well-known actors were joining the cast for the revival.  I worried that it might be distracting.  However, so far, they’ve all fit right in.  Of course, to be honest, Ethan Suplee is exactly the type of quirky actor that you would expect to find in a David Lynch film.  (And make no doubt about it.  Twin Peaks: The Return may be disguised as television series but, at heart, it’s an 18-hour film.)

2. No sooner was I thinking that the scene with Cooper in the limo was reminding me of the opening of Mulholland Drive then Naomi Watts showed up as Cooper/Dougie’s wife.

3. Tonight, we finally got to meet the new Sheriff Truman.  Robert Forster is playing Frank Truman, the bother of Harry S. Truman.  From what I’ve read, Forster was the original choice for the role of Harry S. but, because of scheduling conflicts, he couldn’t take the role.  Interestingly enough, Forster also played a lawman (along with Brent Briscoe who plays a detective in the Twin Peaks revival) in Mulholland Drive.

4. Bobby Briggs growing up to become a deputy somehow just feels so right.  Does anyone remember that, along with being a drug dealer, Bobby actually shot a random guy in the head during Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me?

5. Wally Brando!  Wally Brando, as played by Michael Cera, is either going to be one of the best characters ever or one of the most annoying.  (Of course, I had a strange feeling that something like this would happen when Lucy specifically pointed out that Wally shared his birthday with Marlon Brando.)  It helps that Michael Cera does conceivably look like he could be the son of Harry Goaz and Kimmy Robertson.

6. Oh my God, that lime green jacket.  Dougie Jones would apparently wear anything.

7. “We’re not anywhere near Mt. Rushmore!”

“I brought a picture for you.”

I love the Albert/Gordon comedy team.

8. Kyle MacLachlan was absolutely chilling, playing the imprisoned Cooper Doppelganger.  It was the combination of his attempt to pretend to be human with the flat way that he delivered his cryptic lines.  “I need to be debriefed by you, Gordon…Of course, I will be exonerated in courts of law.”  Agck!

9. Originally, it was planned that David Bowie would recreate his role as Phillip Jeffries but, unfortunately, he passed away before filming began.

10. Who is the woman who might know who Cooper is?  The one that Albert claims to know “where she drinks?”  Audrey, maybe?
