Who is the dreamer?
My take is that we are all the dreamer because there was multiple scenes where the fictitious characters would be doing what we would be doing at the same time "watching the screen"...Mitchum brothers watching security screens, Richard watching the security screens at a different location, Fireman watching the "replay of the first part of ep. 8," Andy watching scenes play by, Sarah Palmer watching tv and drinking, and Cooper/Dougie watching tv while eating cake.
I can't buy this because of the multiple holes that are needed to fill it to make it work.
1. How can we all dream the same dream at the same time? I mean at minimal we are spread out over 4 time zones, if you go to the extreme we are spread out over 24 time zones and most people won't be asleep at the same time to have the same dream. I guess a lot of us could be day dreaming but then how do we get through our day?
2. How are you equating "watching a screen" to dreaming? I am "watching a screen" as I type this but I am fairly certain that I am not dreaming, I guess I could be but then how would I ever know I am awake?
3. What would cause us all to dream the same dream? A news story about a girl down the lane? Reports of mass murders in the Pacific Northwest? Getting that many minds to see the same thing is fairly difficult at best, but usually impossible.
Just so you understand, these arguments are not directed at you and your theory, they are more aimed at Lynch/Frost if that is their real intention with Season 3.
If they intended for us all to be the dreamer I would like to have seen a hypnotist or subliminal message before each episode...wait was there one?
F*%k I don't know, maybe you are right as well. The world has been screwed up since February 23rd, 1989 so nothing falls into place.
Someone on one of the facebook pages just posted that in FWWM ending where we see Laura in a blue light and smiling and crying it is because she is watching a TV screen of her life/Twin Peaks show!
Also that according to them, Lynch has said that the clue to the whole thing is in FWWM!
The opening credits of FWWM is on a blue background.
At the end of the credits, the background is in fact a TV screen with no signal.
Immediately smashed (by a shovel ?) and we are hearing the screams of a young woman, probably Teresa Banks.
At the end of the movie, Laura (or Carrie ?) is watching a TV screen and crying at the same time.
Did the opening and the end of FWWM are connected ?
Yep this is BIG!
Sooooo....is my theory still irrelevant?
But, to the question at hand (Brandy's), I think this may be on the right track. The world of Part 18 seems to be our world. Valero gas station, the appearance of the RR, the fact that Mary Reber answers the door to her own house - it is almost like we are being hit over the head with it!
And one more thing, there is this few seconds scene.
The camera follows Cooper's car and stays steady.
Bendigo Boulevard and North Bend Way signs.
We are not in Twin Peaks, we are in North Bend WA.
(This sign and the other ones at this crossroad are ever out of frame in the original series or The Return).
Also this post from "Neither Wonderful Nor Strange"...So are the viewers the dreamer?
