So I guess we just found out Gordon is one step ahead of everyone else... He not only knew Coop wasnt Coop but already doubted Diane was the "real" Diane (By the way,...where is the real Diane? Or was Diane always a b****h?) 

 I think that's really Diane.  Something just happened that made her collude with DoppelDale.

"Dougie, who do you prefer now, me or that Jade?"
"Jade."
"No, no, Dougie! Jade. Or. Me?"
"Me."
"Okay, once again. Jade. Or. Janey-E?"
"E."

That scene, for me was scary. Eerie. And I don't scare easily. Great scene.

Yeah, it completely freaked me out - butterflies in the stomach, arms tingling for a minute afterwards, total adrenaline spike - very unexpected.

Could it be that Laura, who was distressed, was warning Cole that the news Albert had was a very big deal indeed and danger is growing; or was it Laura's reaction to the news that Diane is a wrong 'un?

Has anyone identified which FWWM scene Laura's vision was from?

Yup, i just re watched it and it really happened but since Tammy appears in this short scene it looks like she walks in some kind of slow motion and i'm not talking about her unique body language and style through all these episodes, there is something more.. anyway maybe it's nothing or maybe it's important, nice find mate!

My money is on an oversight by the continuity cats.

I'm not sure what it will eventually mean, but the timing of those particular clips of Laura seem to coincide with when she finally learned the horrible truth that Bob and her father were one and the same. 

My suspicion is that Gordon has just connected the dots, maybe through whatever the heck that was he was doing drawing antlered dogs, that he's facing an evil on the level of Bob. 

I don't know.  But I'm sticking with it being important he opened a door in order for that to happen.

And here I was just thinking this was another 'backwards' scene.

Hi Ruskin,

I was willing to grudgingly accept continuity gremlins for the magical punctuation transformation of Mr. C's message to Diane.  But there is no way this glimmering, twinkling (even with "No Stars" visible ;-)) doorknob (portal opener) is a mistake.

Much has been made on this Part Ten section of the forum about how disappointing this episode was for some.  However, upon re-watching, I believe that it contains perhaps the most important scene seen so far.

Consider how jam-packed with clues and information that small sequence was:

  • Gordon's drawing of the seven-spotted dog with Douglas firs as antlers and a hand reaching down from the heavens towards it (not to mention the empty ashtray behind him - way to go Gordo!  ;-))
  • Cole's vision of Laura on the threshold (of a dream) before he even sees Albert, at the same time a man's voice calls out "Laaaura" (could be Leland, I couldn't tell for sure)
  • Albert's news that dirty Diane, uh, (sorry MJ ;-)) sent a heavily encrypted message to Mr. C about Hastings and "the site"
  • And Gordon's reply: "That confirms it" 
  • Tammy, in slow motion, walking down a hallway drenched in, and infused with, gold (the same hue as Laura's orb as she is birthed, Athena-like, from the forehead of the Fireman)
  • The blurring of the door knob
  • Tammy's picture of Mr. C and another, so-far-unidentified man in front of the billionaire's Lodge portal
  • And finally Gordon's (Lynch's - the show's writer, creator and let's face it - God (sorry MF)) solemnly intoning, "This is something.  This is really something."

 

And all that in just three minutes!  =:-O

But ah...yeah...no clue what he was drawing in that doodle at all.  My first thought was actually to the old character of the Basselope from the Bloom County comic strip.  You know...dog with antlers.  yadda yadda.  I'll show myself out now.  🙂

The only "dog" references we've had in the series seem to relate to dog legs, posthumously (postdogmously?) removed from their bodies. 

 

Actually, there's been quite a few dog references verbally. "Woofs" and such. "The dog got the cat's eye, etc. Also, at Hasting's house the door knocker is a dog or wolf. I've taken a mental note of dog references throughout the series, but haven't been motivated to go back and track them all down.

There are a lot of things I've been pondering about the meeting between Gordon and Bad Coop, and what followed from there.

One being, Bad Coop wasn't trying to convince Gordon that he was really our very own Cooper returned, but that he knew Gordon would see through him and was taunting him with this knowledge.  I know that you know that I know that you know... etc.

Following on from there, I think Bad Coop knew Gordon would try to get Diane involved, and Diane was already "primed" - for want of a better word - to do whatever Bad Coop had planned for her.

So far, so good but...

Diane has her own agenda, is not working for Bad Coop or Gordon, just for herself or, as another possibility, whoever else has been trying to put the hit on Bad Coop since the show began.  Jeffries, maybe?  Diane is seen to be a victim, damaged by her previous association with Bad Coop, but I reckon that's classic Lynch/Frost misdirection at work.  Diane is playing the unwitting/unwilling accomplice, in order to further her own agenda, whatever it may be.

I also have a firm belief that Gordon knows much, much more than he's telling anyone.

That vision of Laura: is it just my monitor, or has they done something to Lauras face to make her older, or something? When I first saw that scene, it almost freaked me out, just because I thought Laura looked kinda scary. Some kind of ageing effect to her eyes, or something. Or am I seeing things?

I could be wrong but it looked like a clip from FWWM to my eyes.  ISTR she looked quite haggard in some scenes.

No way is that a continuity error.  Far as I can tell, there haven't been any in this series yet.

 You know how obsessive Lynch is; I just can't imagine he's going to let a single one get by, unless it's done in a deliberate Quentin Tarantino style.

Hi SamX,

I'm pretty sure this is the "Donna are you my best friend?!" scene from FWWM.
