The teenagers in Gotta Light?

I was going to post this in the Part 8 forum, but wasn't sure if anyone was still looking in there, so....

Anyone think we'll get an answer as to who the two teenage lovebirds were in part 8? Or at least the girl, since the frog thingy crawled into her?

After Sarah Palmer's breakdown at the liquor store, something about her babbling made me think it was her. She did say, "Something happened to me."

But then, if I remember correctly, the Secret History of Twin Peaks says she's a local, which means that she couldn't have been in New Mexico back in the '50s, right?

I sure hope so because honestly the frog-moth and it's "bride" are among the most intriguing things we know nothing about.  

Sarah makes sense for numerous reasons (she has some psychic ability, as did the girl from 1956 if we can infer that from her "just knowing" where the boy lived).  And her face turned decidedly sour/grave after that thing went into her, and as we know Sarah's life has been a "goddamned bad story".  

But I thought that was too obvious.  Sort of like Becky being the "new Laura" seemed too obvous.  So I theorized she might be someone else.  Sylvia Horne was perpetually miserable, like she had a dead frog moth inside her.  Or maybe it was someone else? 

Best guess if it is not Sarah is that if they ever go back to the "Judy" notion that she'd be a good fit. I guess you could make her that girl in the original Blue Rose case, and that would loosely explain why Phillip was talking about her in FWWM.  

 

But then part of me thinks that all of our focus is on the girl, and perhaps some ought to be on "Boy, 1956".  On the one hand he seems clean cut, even if he has ill-fitting pants.  He is of noticeably darker complexion than the other male leads in the series, so it's hard to imagine him being, say, a young Gordon or anything like that.  

And we still aren't quite sure how the frog moth factors into the workings of the lodge entities.  I had always assumed part of Bob's possessions were that the hosts had to "let" him in.  The frog moth seems to run contrary to this idea.  It used trickery to gain access to it's host. Did it need to do that to prepare the way for Bob/Lodge possessions?   Why not just unleash frog-moths on the world?  Maybe they did?  I have no idea but I hope they do explain that a bit more.

Great question Matthew!

I personally think that the 1956 girl isn't Sarah.  She is just the first girl to fall victim to a parasitic host.

In the Secret History of Twin Peaks (which is canon, I think? lol!), The Log Lady, Carl Rodd and others had supernatural encounters right in Twin Peaks.  And Ruth Davenport and Bill Hastings had their own supernatural encounters in South Dakota.  And Sam and Tracy had theirs in New York.

So I think (and hope) that the 1956 girl is never identified or explained.  It's a beautiful mystery as to who she is, but I believe she is not and never was a resident of Twin Peaks, Washington.

I've always thought those two teenagers weren't necessarily relevant, especially the boy. I think we might get a payback for the frog-moth and what it meant without necessarily knowing who those two kids were.

fishinthepercolator....you should really start your own Twin Peaks website/blog.  You have always stated your opinions with intellect, rational thought and you write those opinions in a way that are enjoyable to read.

You actually said what I wanted to say before me and better than me 😉

There's no better place to discuss the mothfrog than the most recent episode IMO 😀

I personally don't think it's Sarah. 

Just a few thoughts about the mothfrog that I often ponder about when I should be doing something far more constructive:

It could be benevolent or manevolent. We don't know if it's BOB's first incarnation or whether it's something sent by the white lodge to combat the evil lodge entities. 

If it's Sarah, it wouldn't make sense that it's BOB. Given that BOB was in Leland and Leland was married to Sarah. Doesn't add up to me. 

If benevolent, could it be the giant?

Is there a link between those who swallow a mothfrog, and those who have an encounter in Twin Peaks forest and end up with that strange tattoo?

Do mothfrogs end up as the owls??

Unfortunately we may never find out who the girl is. But Im hopeful we will!

I very much doubt, even if Sarah wasn't a local, that she'd be the girl who plays host to the moth froggy thing.  The girl is Hispanic, Sarah looks, if anything, of Northern European origin.

Well we're still waiting on Monica Bellucci showing up in the show though her American accent isn't great. 

I'm just fishing around cause after all this time I might have realised it's not all about big Ed

I haven't read the History of Twin Peaks but I never believed it was Sarah Palmer, I just thought it was showing us the origin of how Bob was released into the world - the whole host scenario.

I do wonder if it has something to do with Hawk as his heritage/ancestry was a clue from Margaret.

Hi, I've been lurking for a while and this is my first post.

Your comment about the buggirl being Hispanic triggered an idea about the girl in the Roadhouse scene crying for James' song.

She has a blue rose tattoo on one arm, someone said. So I went back to confirm this. Can't tell if it is blue, but it could be and it's a rose on her wrist. (The other tattoo is the real actress' grandparents' anniversary date according to the actress, so it might have no significance to the show, but it could since they could have easily masked the tattoos.)

I am wondering if Renee might be related in some way to the buggirl.

I hadn't noticed that before. Just checked on IMDB and the boy seems to be as well. 

Rules out most characters from the original series.

Hi and welcome,

I have to say, that's a fantastic observation. And if you're right, you need an award for Sherlock-esque deduction skills!

This is now my new favourite theory.

It was possession. From the evil egg spewing 'mother'. Simples.
