...in the Buckhorn hotel room! What is it all for? When they are asking Diane about that night with Dale, I thought for a moment that it was monitoring her, some kond of lie (or SOMETHING) detector. But just for a moment.

thoughts?

And I hope they tipped the hotel staff handsomely. Gordon, Albert, Tammy and (certainly) Diane die NOT carry all that!

Good question.  They definitely have their own little "command" center going on there.Portable FBI office?

I thought I was a heavy packer! 

Initially I thought that there must be some Junior FBI people who carry all that stuff for them, but then we never see anyone else on the plane.  Maybe it's some local FBI who meet them and then help them get all their stuff set up.

Its gotta be something for the 'blue rose task force' in particular, searching the red room/lodge manifestation coordinates, monitoring transmissions from there, the 'troubling abstractions' that crop up around the vortex/void, etc., like Andy's newfound thoughts, Naido's appearance, etc..  These machines are also reminiscent of the ones used by the Billionaire to monitor lodge manifestations in New York, and also the machine Mr. C used to talk to his 'lodge-enemy' in the hotel room after he killed Darya.  In this episode we also heard from Bobby that Major Briggs listening post deep in the woods was packed with machines....its gotta be the same type of project going on here.....

It seemed like a comically large amount of tech.  Maybe a nod to the doughnut scene/s from the first run.  Instead of tables full of doughnuts, in the modern command center there are mountains of tech.  It would be fun to see them wheel all that into the Twin Peak's Sheriff's Office conference room. 

And, I like Murat's answer.

But they can't look up Dougie Jones themselves, I guess...

Took it as Lynchian irony, commenting on the impotence of information technology & law enforcement agencies. And, as a reversal (though both observing evil) of the similar stacks in the NY glass-box-portal room.

It's just normal office equipment. These guys are stuck in 1989. 😉

They're also stuck now in Buckhorn apparently. How's all that crap gonna fit on that small jet (had to have been helicoptered in)? Haha.

Well, Albert is the forensics guy.  And he don't suffer podunk backwoodsie facilities.  Maybe it's all to give Major Briggs his due and proper analysis.

Equipment?  Pah!  That's nowt.  You should see what our keyboard player insists on dragging around.  Mind you, he is the musical director, stage sound engineer and recording guru.

Or was, until he relocated to Bulgaria.

I think I have an old cell phone lying around that looks like that. I use it to threaten my son (here, you can use THIS one!).
