    [–] Question About Live Show RunDNA 2 points ago in theavalanches

    They played If I was a Folk Star and Colours in Sydney. If they don't play many slow songs it's probably because they are going for a high energy show.

    [–] [S3E4] A list of all the characters so far mentioned in the end credits RunDNA 2 points ago in twinpeaks

    Yeah, those three weren't credited, presumably because they didn't speak (only a few other minor characters who didn't speak are listed, such as Ruth Davenport).

    My theory with the businessman is that the two bundles of cash he gives to his assistant (saying "Tell her she has the job") are to pay Jade the prostitute to make sure that Dougie is at that particular house at 2:53. All at the bidding of Mr C.

    That was the second lady played by the same actress as Ronette Pulaski (Phoebe Augustine).

    It was in the end credits.

    Could you expand? I'm not sure I understand.

    The Silver Mustang Casino is definitely in Vegas.

    The first scene of Episode 4 is set at the casino, and the first establishing shot of that scene is a nighttime view of Las Vegas from the air (you can see the Stratosphere Tower in the distance).

    This also explains the scene with the Las Vegas businessman Duncan Todd in Episode 2. My theory is that the two bundles of cash he gives to his assistant (saying "Tell her she has the job") are to pay Jade the prostitute to make sure that Dougie is at that particular house at 2:53. Duncan is fearful of someone who has power over him. That someone is probably Mr. C.

    [–] [S3E4] Guy minding the glass box... RunDNA 1 points ago in twinpeaks

    They do have the same haircut. I can see how you would be confused. The show is full of doppelgangers and doubles, so maybe we are supposed to see a connection.

    [–] [S3E4] Guy minding the glass box... RunDNA 1 points ago in twinpeaks

    Different actors.

    Sam Colby, the glass box guy, is played by Ben Rosenfield.

    Deputy Jesse Holcombe is played by James Grixoni.

    [–] [No Spoilers] I love how we can theorize in real time! RunDNA 1 points ago in twinpeaks

    I remember that alt.tv.twin-peaks on Usenet was really popular back in the day. Lots of activity and quality posts there.

    Fun fact: IMDb started as posts on the Usenet group rec.arts.movies, when users started making lists of Directors and Actors and Actresses, and it turned into the "rec.arts.movies movie database" and then later the Internet Movie Database.

    [–] [S3E3] The 15 safe was a trap RunDNA 46 points ago in twinpeaks

    At first I thought that Portal 15 was some sort of trap and that Naido was helping Cooper by making sure he didn't go through.

    But then I had the theory that maybe Portal 15 was leading to the cigarette lighter in the car and that she was making sure that Good Cooper traveled through Portal 3 into the house where Dougie is, i.e. that she was a part of Bad Cooper's plan of having Cooper swap with Dougie instead of Bad Cooper.

    But rewatching the scene there's no real indication that Portal 15 leads to the car. When Cooper travels into Portal 3 it still seems like there is some sort of supernatural battle going on where he could end up either in the car with Bad Cooper or in the house with Dougie. Portal 3 seems to lead to either place.

    So I'm back to my first theory that Portal 15 is a dangerous portal to somewhere else, e.g. non-exist-ance or to be trapped in the room forever like you say.

    [–] [S3E3] Similar font on the wall panel numbers and the pole ... deliberate? RunDNA 1 points ago in twinpeaks

    Yeah, MIKE tells Dougie in the red room that he was manufactured. Presumably by Evil Cooper as a substitute.

    Rewatching the scene now, I'm not too sure my theory is true.

    There's no real indication that Portal 15 leads to the car. It could have been some other dangerous portal to somewhere else, e.g. non-exist-ance or something.

    Because when Good Cooper does disappear into Portal 3, it seems like there is some sort of battle as to where he will end up. The cigarette lighter in the car is buzzing and going crazy, and it is like there is some sort of competition to see which of Dougie or Bad Cooper will throw up the Garmonbozia first. Or something like that. And whichever one loses, Cooper will be transported to their location and be swapped with them.

    I don't know.

    I agree with most of your interpretation.

    But it raises one troubling issue.

    The scene where Naido stops Cooper from traveling through the 15 portal and then pulling the lever so that he now has a 3 portal to travel through is presented like she is saving him somehow. Like she did a good thing for him.

    But then the subplot with Bad Coop is about how he manipulates things so that Coop doesn't travel through the cigarette lighter in the car (presumably the 15 portal) to swap with Bad Coop, but instead travels though the electrical socket (presumably the 3 portal) to swap with Dougie instead.

    Naido and Bad Coop are both getting the same result. Almost like they are acting together.

    That is, if Naido hadn't stopped Cooper, then he would have traveled through the 15 portal in the car, swapped with Bad Cooper, and Bad Cooper would then be trapped in the lodge and Good Cooper would be out in the world. Which would be a good result. But Naido and Bad Cooper both stopped that from happening.

    [–] [S3E1] Looking for a specific line from the premiere RunDNA 5 points ago in twinpeaks

    "Swimming in my mind at this time, literally, is my new hydroponic Indica-Sativa hybrid. A touch of the mythic AK-47 by way of the Amsterdam express is baked into this banana bread and infused in this potent spreadable jam that's ideal for creative sojourns of a solitary nature. Wheels up."

    Great writing from Mark and David.

    Gordon gets the call that Bad Cooper is in South Dakota. The police probably identified him by his fingerprints.

    Edit: to clarify, you probably made the same mistake that I initially made when I was watching it. I thought the call to Gordon was telling him that they had found Good Cooper in the casino. But the call was about them finding Bad Cooper in the car accident.

    And that whole scene had a blue tint to it.
