Let’s take a closer look at Showtime’s two simultaneously released 30-second Twin Peaks teasers —after Twin Tweets, we get Twin Teasers— both mixing in the “It is happening again” title card for the very first time.
Twin Peaks ‘Mirror’ Tease
The “Mirror” tease shows Dale Cooper’s final shot in the season two finale —note that we do not hear his final words— followed by footage of a somber, present-day Dale Cooper as seen in an earlier teaser.
What happens during the 25 years between both scenes will likely be unraveled in the new Twin Peaks.
Twin Peaks ‘Body’ Tease
The second tease, titled “Body,” shows the iconic head shot of the murdered Laura Palmer and then jumps to a previously unseen shot of her homecoming queen portrait taped to what looks like cardboard. Is it missing the frame? Can we assume that, just like the image of Dale Cooper in the dark, this footage is from the upcoming series?
So why did Showtime release these two teasers simultaneously? Maybe we need to play them back at the same time? Now it doesn’t look like he’s in that room, but at about 16 seconds in, maybe Dale Cooper is looking at/for Laura Palmer… again?
