I would like to see him up on stage at the Bang Bang bar and it pans out and he is all alone just practicing. He puts down to his guitar and starts sweeping for 23 minutes ending the last episode.

I'd like to see him being fed into an industrial wood chipper.

I'm longing to see the well-worn, hard-bitten James suggested in part 2. Enjoying the still-deeply-flawed-but-somehow-wiser Bobby, Carl Rodd, Dr Jacoby, Ben, Jerry, and esp. Hawk. Its a little unfair that James (and James Marshall playing the silly original scene with as much embodied performance as MacLachlan's Dougie-Cooper / Lillard's Hastings) has taken the brunt for Lynch's own musical style; his voice even sounds like Lynch's voice on his albums.

If you thought James' falsetto was bad in the 90's, just wait...

Can barely wait, Karen. I expect it will test the boundaries of the canon.

It would definitely test the boundaries of my patience.

In part 2, Shelly said that James had a car accident. I wonder if that accident would be related to Dougie's car accident... Maybe James wrote a song about the incident with his 10 000+$ guitar?

Oops, He was in a motorcycle accident, not a car accident. My bad...

«He's just quiet now» said Shelly.

In defense of "Just You...."   ... it is one of my favorite scenes in all Twin Peaks. Surreal! The scene is something out of this world, a rupture in the flow of lynch's "realistic" depiction of things, and something that sets up the horrors that shortly follow (including my all-time favorite scene of Frank Silva as Bob).

 

Re: James's singing-- everyone's a critic, while few people can actually sing. My stance is, "Who cares if a falsetto is good?"  Bad singing has a rich history, including the inimitable voice of our current Nobel Laureate in Poetry, Robert Allan Zimmerman, a different BOB.

What's more, I love the multi-generational recursion to ever-more threadbare "rebel" archetypes-- Wally Brando. for me, stands as the apotheosis of the cartoonish James Hurley-as-James-Dean.  The 'Rebel Without a Cause" trope is exposed as decadent, stultifying, putrescent. A theme echoed, IMO, by the many muscle cars--classic and of more recent vintage-- in The Return.  

"Sheriff Truman, do you want to see my new car? It's a two-thousand---"

Pretty savvy, if you ask me.
