One Year Later, Can't Stop Thinking About the Return

Interesting essay and reflection in Esquire. While I don't agree with the author's positions on everything, it's a well thought out piece and worth the read, IMO. I think that many in this forum can identify with the author's sense of lingering. 

Excerpt:

"As series heavyweights such as Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, and Lynch himself gather a year later to promote the show for Emmy consideration, fans of the show still haven’t quite gotten over the heartbreak of it all. Before Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost decided to return to Twin Peaks, the tragic fate of Laura Palmer’s brutal rape and murder hung above our heads for more than two decades, like a dead relative’s spirit wandering adrift from an empty grave. Many of us hoped that perhaps Laura and her ferociously tormented soul could finally find peace after all these years. But I guess that’s our own fault; expecting Lynch to do anything other than the unexpected was foolish. The ending to Laura Palmer’s story would naturally unravel more layers of tragedy than ever before."

Nice article. The reference to love at the end seems on point, but I do think we are left with the fear that love is not enough.

Well, you know, gotta keep everyone on their toes with regard to stereotyping 😉

I can get on board with that interpretation.

I also think that Coop was too focused on trying to do the "right thing" and didn't much bother to ask if he should do it.
