Time jumps, again

Bobby said to Big Ed that they had found something left by his father earlier today. Timeline for the episodes is all over the place. Hoping for a blu-ray option to watch them in the right order.

Time seems to jump in Ed's reflection in the last sequence - spooky.

The boxing loop.  The repeated Dr Amp footage.   

The entire show is offcenter and unsettling.  I'm loving it.

They will be in THIS order, David lynch's decision for the story.

You've gotta think that someone is going to try to make a "chronological" cut.  I think that would be awful. The uncertainty sbout time is adding a while new level of creepy.

It seems to me there is one linear timeline that follows both Coopers in parallel and the other two (FBI and Twin Peaks) are all over the place.

I recall a cinema making a chronological cut of Pulp Fiction... criminal! The same goes for any chronological cut of this masterpiece!

Big Ed's plaid shirt is not the same in RR diner and at his Gas Farm.

The time line is so confusing.  I want to take notes but I'm afraid I'll end up like

A very ominous ending for Big Ed.  At whose Gas Farm we know the weird deputy Jesse has hung out before.

I don't really see some of these as "time jumps." This is simply when Bobby told Ed about. It brings Ed into the show, and suggests he will be a part of a pivotal future episode. It is the same story, from Ed's perspective.

Is it a time loop? Or maybe they already went to Jack Rabbit's Palace and found something ELSE from the Major? Like a collection of documents readers of The Secret History of Twin Peaks are familiar with?

Here's the thing...

If you take what's happening to DougieCoop as the baseline, it could well be all the other stuff is something like:

3 days earlier...

or

Last week...

but without the helpful titles to tell you this.

Just because one scene follows another doesn't mean to say that's the order they happened in.  And yes, Pulp Fiction.  One of my all time favourites.  Why anyone would want to re-cut it chronologically is beyond me.

Don't worry, they won't be able to. 

But some nuts will spend years trying.

I'm extremely embarrassed to admit this publicly but I've been keeping a detailed track of the timeline for each location/story. (My only excuse is being currently under-employed and having put my back out...) Whenever I think I've got a plausible timeline, some detail throws things out again.

I think it's a marvellous kaleidoscope. If you reordered it (but why on earth would you?) it would just come up as another puzzling perspective.

Or maybe it's jigsaw puzzle which almost fits together but doesn't quite. Maybe it doesn't have a a complete or right solution at all.

Just fantastic.

Another point

In the last week, we saw Dougie playing baseball with his son. But in this episode we saw Dougie after a wild night with the Mitchums, presumably after directly of the scene when the brothers gave the cherry pie to Dougie.
