Rancho Rosa opening colours.

Last night, when I saw the episode 11, I noticed that Rancho Rosa logo in the opening credits was in blue tones. I never realized about the colours in that logo, so I made screen captures of all the RR logos and found that all the episode so far are with different tones. 
Maybe it's only an art direction decision, maybe it is a random thing (I don't think so) or maybe means something.

The order in the picture is from 1 to 11, if you want to analize de colours.

Hi Isabel,

Thanks for posting this.  

I was going to go back and look at the colors, thinking there were only two or three, and see if I could discern a theme in each episode for each color.

Now, it is evident that all of them are unique.  =:-O

That's strange - even for Cooper

I've wondered if the colors coincided with the episode content. Unfortunately, all the parts are starting to blur together and I'm having trouble deciphering what happened during which hour, so I can't tell anymore if the colors have specific meaning.

Definitely these are color clues as I have posted on in previous episodes, with the rancho rosa screen giving a sort of theme for each episode, and the electricity on this screen indicates a sort of energy or becoming, with moves being made in the areas the color represents, change coming to the 'ideas' represented by the colors.  Here we had blue and white, and blue is something like failing/sadness/melancholia while white is sort of like being, facts, or surface, what is there, positivity, how people live with a situation, cover up the atomic blast/trauma/death(black inside).  We had first the blue trailer, with the old fashioned twin peaks Miriam crawling barely alive out of the woods, old twin peaks is barely alive etc.  Then Becky dealing with sadness/failure of her relations with Steven,  black inside/Hiroshima coming out, then later the white cover at the diner, which leads into how Bobby is dealing with the failure/sadness of his family after Red shoots up the diner and he confronts the make up of the problem at the traffic jam. 

      Mitchums and old jackpots woman then become the white cover for the intense suffering and sadness, what amounts to slavery, enforced on Dougie and Candie, which coincides with the melancholia song at the end of the episode, with slave Dougie and Candie, forcibly prevented from using their struggles and desires freely, Dougie becomes a 'mr. Jackpots' cash machine for everyone around him and unable to enjoy the 'damn fine' pie or the champagne, while Candie sadly is forced to say the 'traffic jam' is alright, her search for love is gone, etc., in order to survive and not be torn apart on the streets.......Mitchums are the 'white cover', giving the quirky-cool-classy cover to what is happening, slavery, ruining people, turning them into cash machines for their mafia enterprise(notice how mullins was fooled here by this white cover, thought the Mitchums are good, reality/white/being is basically good, just a conspiracy and a few corrupt cops, he made the mistake precisely when he got the payout, the gold and started getting quirky like the corrupt cops, pushup, talking about boxing, etc., he wasnt 'blue', etc., going from blue to white, how you cover up that intense sadness at the core of reality)

Why slavery?  Mr. C/Billionaires are seeking to control access to the infinite, what comes out of the box, where the coordinates are to maintain their profits surplus that come out of the infinite which changes reality, forms it.  People have no freedom, they are reduced to Johnny tied up in a chair staring at that robot, the debt they have to pay for Mr. C/billionaires who manufacture the orders coming out of the robot, barred from access to infinite like love, dignified life, justice, law, etc., it is just tyranny covered by flashy stuff or false 'causes' that look like the real thing but are not when you think about them and what they support(Dougie here).  Thus they use terror and tyranny to keep all of reality servicing them, since the freedom and dignity of ordinary people is now a threat to them(hastings thinking and searching for true love, Candie looking for love, Agent cooper trying to solve the mystery of Laura), it will stop their flow of profits(capitalism cannot exist in the same way, to keep profits with the technology that eliminates work, need to enslave people and put them to work in other ways, take their love, entire life, etc., so it must eliminate all freedom).  Thus Mr. C/billionaires enforce slavery, via the Dougie they manufactured when they realized Hastings was discovering the infinite and would use it for his everyday life, other people could, and with this freedom would not accept their tyrannous world, they needed a 'white' cover(Dougie the guy having wild fun, gambling, women, etc., while in reality being a docile slave, a cripple  not allowed to purse a dignified life, and drained of all his efforts).  Very forceful episode, and looking at the Candie character led me down this path..........

Brilliant idea here, about how the 'quirky'/fake cause(Shelly, etc.)/cool(Mitchums) white surface hides the brutal and infinite suffering that is right underneath twin peaks, US, and world in general.....and is imposed on everyone via Mr. C/billionaires

Just think about how the Dougie comedy(mr. Jackpots, et, etc.) allows to hide the brutal suffering that agent cooper must be going through, unable to break out of that prison..........and ill admit ive been caught out here a few times as well.....but what kind of world is when just wanting to do some basic stuff or true love, research is immediately going to get you killed, slavery, etc., in so many cases, what kind of world Mr. C/billionaires are enforcing/manufacturing

AH, my apologies Murat, you have discussed this before. How could I forget. I think I've been overloaded that my internal processor can't keep up the data input. Can anyone suggest a good upgrade?

Interestingly, I'm watching this in Australia on Stan and they don't seem to have changing colours for each episode, so this is news to me...

I think it is difficult to interpret each of the colors chosen for each episode, because every episode are very intense and bright! But I think the simplest to interpret are episodes 4 and 11. For me they are in blue tones because it is in 4th episode where Gordon Cole speaks explicitly about "Blue Rose", and in the last one is the chapter in which he has a supernatural experience, seeing the portal and the woodsmen (a more intense experience than get a vision of Laura Palmer).

 My interpretation of episode 3, 5 y 8 openings are related to Mr C / Dale / BOB.

 The last episode when we can see Dale Cooper as we know him (or we think we know him) is episode 3, when he travel trough electricity and arrived to “our” world replacing Dougie Jones. For that reason the opening logo is black and white (grey letters, white background, positive).

 In episode 5, which colors are in very intense black and white, we can see the unnatural power of Mr C when he made the call in jail and made that unusual effect on TV and monitors. Also we saw BOB in the mirror (as a confirmation that Mr C is actually BOB)

But in the episode 8 opening logo, the colors are the negative colours of episode 3 and 5, because we can see the evil in pure state (probably the exact moment when evil has born on earth in form of BOB), and of course, almost the only known character we saw on screen is Mr C / the negative version of our beloved Dale Cooper.

I wondered about the changing colour themes - Part 8 is clearly particularly distinct. As Isabel points out, it appears to be negative (white on black rather than the other way round) and it's the only one that's entirely monochrome. In all of the others, in the text that follows the RR images posted above there are three As that are highlighted in red, whatever the rest of the colour combo is. For Part 8 they're just black.

So am I. Can assure you the colours are different for each ep on Stan.

Is it possible for a single colour to represent the events of an entire episode?

Definitely not, there is the whole light spectrum and also the non-colors of white-black(being/nothing) in every episode that is interacting.  The 'color theme' just indicates where the 'electricity, change, energy' is located, since the rancho rosa screen is a light bulb flashing with wild electricity..... For example, episode 10 with all the horror (Richard, miriam, steven/becky in the trailer, etc.), had a gold background, so it was a change in the general enjoyment, when it passes into pain, horror, etc....., but there was still the 'red cup' and other colors that interacted with this 'gold electricity'.....

I think why episode 8 had the white color on the circle and the letters, what is highlighted, is because it was about the 'birth of something new' from the atomic blast; with the woodsmen emerging from the atomic fire, changing the song on the radio which changed all the ordinary people, and the new for of life in that frog/insect abomination which took over the girl.    

In the episodes before that, with black on the circle and the letters, it is always about repetition of the same, failing to change the core of the problem, the frame in which we see things, the song on the radio through which we see the world, etc.  For example, Mr. C's, the cow jumped over the moon and still had BOB in him in the prison, he was supposed to go back into the lodge, agent cooper was supposed to come back, but he prevented it, nothing has changed, can go on as normal etc., came to a tension, but failed to change the situation, he can keep going on etc., and I think this is the main quest of Mr. C/billionaires and why they are looking for coordinates and watching through that glass box....

I don't think so, too. 
Maybe we have to wait until the end of the season. Maybe at the end we can find some pattern in the colour titles and their connections. (For example, all in red tones were about something in particular, all the black and white ones were about other things, etc).

Can we please revisit this now that the season is over? The last two RR cards in the last two episodes were definitely related, and it seems that the episodes provide a single, united ending when played simultaneously (what I have been calling the 2 birds, one stone ending). I wonder if these colors could be codes for how elements in the episodes may directly relate to each other.
